Rachel Comey Dress, Size 6

Great dress from Rachel Comey. Short boatneck sleeve pullover "flatlander" dress in the "watercolor plaid printed on a textured diamond jacquard." Front is ruched with snaps down almost the whole front, back has a low v-neck. 80% cotton, 20% silk. Lined. Great for the last days of summer or with tights and boots for fall. Too short on me otherwise I'd keep it.

Size: 6, but I think this would work for a size 4 too. I'm 5' 6.5" and this is a mini dress on me. Measures 16.5" across the bust, 14" across the waist, 19" across the bottom hem.

Condition: Perfect, worn once with no visible wear.

Paid: $200 on sale, retailed for $480.

Asking: $95 + $5 shipping in the US.

Listing ends: September 8.

Rachel Comey Shoes, Size 8.5/9

Black leather textured Rachel Comey pumps in a size 9. Four inch heel with a half inch hidden platform, high but super wearable. Worn once, in perfect condition. These are great they are just a bit small on me. I am usually a 9 in RC but I'd say these would best fit an 8.5.

Paid: About $200 on sale, can't remember exactly but retailed for close to $400.

Asking: $90 + $10 shipping.

Listing ends: September 8.

Theory Silk shirt, Size XS

Theory Aquilina Paradise Habotai Silk shirt, XS-- New with tags
  • Silk
  • Spread collar, long sleeves, button cuffs
  • Concealed button front closure, rear center pleat
  • Asking for $130 shipped within the US

Unworn. I bought this final sale with
out the intention of returning, but I just found the white version, and only had room to keep one of them.

I'd say the stock pictures are an accurate depiction of the blue. My phone camera quality is terrible, so I wouldn't pay much attention to the color there.

Listing ends in one week, September 8.

Schott NYC Women's Perfecto Jacket Made in USA

Size: Small

Condition: Pre-owned

Retail: $650 via Schott NYC site. 

Asking: $375 Shipping included (lowered from my previous posting!)

This Ladies Schott Perfecto leather jacket retails for $650 brand new but I need to make some room in my closet and this motorcycle jacket just hasn't been getting as much love as it should.  Perfect leather jacket for all seasons (albeit a little warm in the summer months!)
The jacket is in great used shape and just came back from being leather cleaned. 

Please let me know if you have any questions and the listing will end on Sunday the 7th.

Two New York Tunic

Black and white cotton ikat tunic from the Brooklyn line Two New York by Monica Patel-Cohen. The designer sources her fabrics from India and makes them into easy to wear, summer time cuts. You can read more about the line on Remodelista as well as The Makers Project. This tunic is small/medium (she usually only does one or two sizes given the loose fit) but has a nice drape.

Purchased new from the studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn for $215 plus tax. Worn twice. Trying to pare down my closet and hoping to find this piece a great home. Asking $105 or best offer. US shipping and paypal only. All inquiries please contact wytheandmetropolitan[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks.

Kathleen Whitaker Rose Gold Staple Stud Earring

Kathleen Whitaker rose gold short staple stud earring. 14k rose gold measuring 6mm x 1mm. Purchased new from the designer for $40 plus shipping but also available at Anaise and LaGarconne. I have too many similar studs so am parting with this one. Brand new and never been worn. Comes in original packaging. Please note, as with all Kathleen Whitaker items, this is a single stud as shown.

Top two photos are of the exact item (bottom two are for reference). Asking $32 or best offer. US shipping and paypal only. All inquiries please contact wytheandmetropolitan[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks.

New frye heels - relist reduced

New frye heels

Relisting,I couldnt ship these earlier to previous bidder due to some work.  Click on the pictures for better detail.

Absolutely Beautiful pair of Frye heels.  Bought online on a whim but I never wear heels.
Size  8.5

Pristine condition. Tried a couple of times only on carpet. No wear at all on heels.
 I have the box as well and shipping might be a tad more if you need the box.

purchased for 200 $ something + tax :( ouch.
Asking 65$ SHIPPED. Beautiful leather, will last forever :) and if you are a heels girl, the platform really makes it comfy.

FINAL RELIST/REDUCE | Vintage Lace Up Moccasins -- with measurements

I love these shoes. The color is amazing and I've never seen anyone wearing anything quite the same. However, they are too slim for my foot, and I've never worn them. I bought at a vintage shop in Brooklyn many years ago, and they are in impeccable condition, possibly worn once. (Pardon the background textile, but it captured the color best).

Size 7, they run narrow, the width is about 3.25in on the sole, as shown in the image. Length is 9.25 from heel to toe.

Originally, I listed a measurement from the inside of the shoe, but the sole measurement is more accurate, and the leather stretches out comfortably to about 3.5.

Asking $30 LAST CALL: $20 shipped in the US

FINAL RELIST/REDUCE Chanel No. 5 Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette

"It's all I wear." Famously quoted Marilyn Monroe. Or was Peggy paraphrasing on Mad Men? 

Regardless, Chanel No. 5 may be the most classic and timeless fragrance. It was enough that I gave it a try, but it's just not me.

I have both the .25oz Eau de Parfum refillable purse spray and the 1.7oz Eau de Toilette. Used a handful of times, but still three quarters or more full.

Bought both from Neimans, parfum for $70, toilette for about the same.

Asking $75 for both, + 5 shipping (or more for int'l)
Now $50 for both, +5 shipping (more for int'l)

Missoni Pants, Size 40 (4/6)

Beautifully made 100% cotton slim fit pants from Missoni. Front slant pockets, no back pockets. Tab closure. More cranberry and less crimson than the photos appear. Just one size too small, otherwise I'd keep them.

Condition: Good except some very slight chalkiness near the front right pocket -- not sure if this is a bit of fading or whether it will come out. Either way, it is not very noticeable (you can't see it in the photos).

Size: 40, which I would say fit like a size 4 (I'm a 4 or 6 or a 28 and these are just a bit too tight). 28.5" inseam, 12" rise, 14" across the waist,

Asking: $40 + $5 shipping in the US.

Listing ends: September 6.

Great shirt from the Current/Elliott + Mary Katrantzou collaboration from last year.

I coveted this like crazy but realized I have 3 shirts in the same color scheme and haven't worn it much, go figure. Super high quality but soft and wearable, in like-new condition.

Size: 1, or small. Measures 17.5" across the bust, 19" across the bottom. 24.5" long.

Paid: About $100 on sale, retailed for $200+.
