An eBay seller revealed last night that she accidentally included herself in a photo of a yellow dress she intended to sell, wearing close to nothing.
Amimi Jones, 21, hung the yellow dress by ASOS on her wardrobe door to take a picture of it for the eBay listing. What she didn't realize was that her own reflection could be seen in the door mirror. Jones was wearing just a black bra in the photo.

The listing went viral and has now sparked a number of fake eBay sale ads for the yellow dress with fictional characters making the same mistake according to DailyMail.com.
"'It's so embarrassing. It is such a dizzy, stupid thing to do and now the whole world's seen me in the nude," said Jones in an interview The Sun.
The new listing for the dress reads "Asos yellow skater dress size 10, 2nd time around!! a MUST HAVE!! As seen by thousands. Never worn naked. Needs a good home."

The dress was originally listed for $15.99, but since the listing went viral the dress obtained over 130 bids and the current offer is around $245,000.
"I put it on eBay last Saturday morning and realized straight away so ended the sale," Jones said to The Sun. "But what I didn't realize was that people could still it on the site. I reported it to eBay and they took it down, but by then it had gone viral. My boyfriend Andy thinks the whole thing is hilarious."
