APC Dusty Pink Dress XS

This dress is so lovely. Bought it two years ago at the APC store and have only worn it a few times. It's sheer so you have to wear a slip underneath it. Has great pocket detail and a two buttons on the back and bottom of sleeves. There is a small snag/run on the back part of the dress that is barely visible and two very light stains that I think would come out with dry cleaning on the bottom of the dress, I've tried to photograph them but it's hard to show up. The close up pictures also do not represent the true color which is a pale dusty pink.

I paid about $220 for this dress and am asking for $40 including shipping.

It is made of 100% cotton. Shoulders are 15" and length is 32."

Listing ends March 1st.

APC Ecru Top XS

I really love this top and unfortunately it's gotten too small for me, only wore it a couple of times. I sold it on ebay but it was returned from the buyer as she said there was staining around the inside of the collar....I've taken a picture and don't see anything...It's a great fabric that has a subtle diamond pattern woven into the fabric and cute front pockets.

It's made of 100% cotton and shoulders are approx 14.5" and length is 24." It was org. around $200 and I'm asking for $50 which includes shipping.

Listing ends March 1st.

Marc Jacobs silk dress size 2

Marc Jacobs floral silk dress with removable orange sash, size 2. This is a really beautiful dress with ruffle detailing at the neckline, down across the bodice, and across the skirt. It has flutter sleeves. It is extremely flattering on and has a side zip closure. The fabric is a lovely silk, very pale blue with salmon, beight, goldenrod, and navy flowers (again, sorry for my awful pictures; the color is best represented by the first picture). The belt came with it, but I usually swap it out for something more neutral. Runs true to size: bust: 15, waist: 13, length: 39.

I bought this at Barneys for $250, wore it once, asking $50, includes shipping.

Lyell Julie Christie Dress size 6 (fits 4 or 6)

Gorgeous white linen Lyell Julie Christie Dress. Lovely pleating down the front, peter pan collar, A-line shape, side pockets. Purchased from the Lyell shop in Nolita. Perfect condition, worn once or twice (it is just a bit too big on me-- this is best for a 4 or maybe a small 6, as the shape is very forgiving). The only thing is that I have lost the white slip that goes underneath-- that is why I am not putting this on ebay. 100% linen. Sorry for my terrible pictures; it is the exact dress as in the first picture.

Length: 33
Bust: 18
Shoulders: 14.5
Paid: close to $300 (I am cringing as I write that); asking: $75, includes shipping.
End date: March 15

Paid around $85, asking $15, including shipping. Listing ends: March 15.
