Brand new Prada suede sandals size 38

Beautiful purple suede Prada sandals, only tried on inside.  Perfect condition, they have never been out of the house. Heels are four inches with a half inch platform at front.  They are surprisingly comfortable for the height but I don't wear heels anymore. Size 38, I am a 7.5 and these are perfect on me. So sad I never got to wear them but I'm doing a major closet cleaning. Comes with Prada dust bags.

I paid about $275 for then at a barneys sale.  Yours for $85 including shipping, buyer to pay PayPal fees.

Bonbi Forest Big Cats Scarf



 *first photo courtesy of Myrtle

Super fun scarf by Bonbi Forest made of 100% viscose, purchased from Myrtle in LA. Screenprinted cats and leaves on one side, with fringe on both ends.  A perfect wrap due to it's generous size--you could probably manipulate this into a top quite easily; and it can certainly double as a skirt, if you wish!  Selling the white colorway.  Worn on one single occasion, and has been stored in a clean drawer ever since.

80" x 27"

Frei Designs High Waisted Pants




*first 2 photos courtesy of Frei Designs

Beautiful pair of high waisted pants with pleats at the waist; very 20's inspired.  Made by eco-friendly Chicago designer, Frei of 100% tencel twill exclusive of buttons and zippers.  These pants have an impeccable drape, and taper evey so slightly at the hem.  They look fantastic with booties, and would be killers with heels or sandals. They are a bit too long for me, and have only been worn once.  Super fly and super fantastic.

Size M
Waist ~30"
Hips ~42"
Length from waist to hem ~ 42"

Tadashi Shoji Dress, Size S/M







Perfect little black dress by Tadashi Shoji. Square neck, cap sleeves, back zipper. Seaming down front and back (I had to take closeups to capture the seams, hence the photos). This is a true black, not slightly washed out like in the photos. Fabric is stretchy but substantial: 82% rayon, 10% nylon, 8% lycra. Comfortable and flattering. I just have too many black dresses!

Vintage '40s raw silk polka-dot dress, XS







Posting for Emily:

Selling this gorgeous vintage '40s dress in a wonderful, slubby raw silk. The main color is a fawn/tan, with cream polka dots. No tags, but fits like an XS (please see measurements below). Features very '40s cap sleeves, back buttons, a side zip, and a defined waistband. In fantastic vintage condition, especially considering its time period; the few flaws I can note is that the interior seams have frayed somewhat, but this not noticeable from the outside and does not affect the dress structurally (please see photo), and the hem is slightly worn in spots (again, see photo). Approximate measurements, all taken while lying flat:

Length from opposite sleeve edges: 20" (shoulders are free)
Bust: 15.5"
Waist: 11.5"
Hips: 20"
Length from shoulder to hem: 39"

Asking $110 shipped CONUS for this lovely piece. Open to shipping internationally, just let me know in the comments. Leave your email if you'd like to be included, and feel free to ask any questions in the comments!

Vintage Eddie Bauer 60/40 Style Parka









Vintage Eddie Bauer Jacket.  I'm pretty sure this is Eddie Bauer's version of LL Bean's Baxter State 60/40 Parka (both are wool lined with cotton-blend exterior).  These style of jackets are a true tomboy style staple and a perfect jacket for fall!  Only tag on this is the Eddie Bauer label but this looks unisex and would best fit a women's medium or large (can go smaller if you want an oversized look).  This belonged to my aunt and the color and fit tell me it was probably from the early 90s.  Only issue is a slight loosening of the bottom of the zipper, but that can be fixed with an easy stitch and doesn't effect the use of the zipper (see last pic).  In awesome condition, even the wool lining has only minimal pilling.  Comes with a detachable hood that you can go full-fashion with and add a fur or faux trim to.  Coming to you freshly washed (I just put this in the washing machine and hang to dry and it comes out looking great).       

Measures: 24" Armpit To Armpit (keep in mind this is wool-lined) / 31" Total Length.  

BUY HERE FOR $60 (US Shipping Included)

Listing ends one week from today.  Buyer must pay Paypal fees.  Please email themchenryoutdoor at gmail with any questions.  Thanks!  If you are an international buyer, please let me know what country in the description so you can be quoted a shipping rate.
