[SOLD} Orla Kiely Shoulder Bag


I have too many Orla Kiely bags and I have two I'm offering up here because they are seldom used compared to my other bags.

The colors in the photo are not as vibrant as they are in real-life. The orange in the flowers is more like a florescent orange and the green in the lower left hand corner and upper right corner is more of a grass green. The flower in the lower right corner is brown and the shoulder strap is tan on one side and lime green on the other.

The exterior is matte laminated and the interior is tan colored nylon. Dimensions are as follows:
Dimensions (in): H9 x W17 x D4
Handle Length: 15in

Inside details include zip and mobile pockets and key chain. Magnet closure.

Asking: $55 + $10 shipping (US addresses) SOLD!
Condition: Exterior is excellent. Interior has a few imperceptible stains which I've sponged off but otherwise it looks great. I've lowered the asking price to be fair.

Listing end date: January 9, 2010. Paypal only please.

Please leave your email in the comments if interested. Thanks!

{SOLD} Orla Kiely Maxi Sling Bag


I have too many Orla Kiely bags and I have two I'm offering up here because they are seldom used compared to my other bags.

The last pic is blurry, but the interior lining is the stem print. The exterior is laminated and shiny. The colors in the photo are fairly accurate to real-life.

This bag is a bit larger than the midi sling and dimensions are as follows:
Dimensions (in): H13 x W15 x D5
Handle Length: max 32in

This bag would be great as a book bag, that is if you don't have to carry too many books. I believe it could carry a small laptop, probably 13 inches or smaller. My macbook fits into it.

Inside details include zip and mobile pockets and key chain. Magnet closure. Adjustable strap that allows the bag to worn as a shoulder bag or across the body.

Asking: $60 + $10 shipping (US addresses) SOLD!
Condition: Excellent - only used a few times

Listing end date: January 9, 2010. PayPal only please.

Please include your email address in the comments if interested. Thanks!

[SOLD] Vintage Ferragamo Black and Gold Pumps

Item: Vintage Ferragamo Heels
Color/material: Black leather with gold ornament
Size: size 7B, fits like a 6.5-7
Condition: vintage but in very nice condition, some wear on the sole but not much elsewhere
Asking: $20, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA
Listing ends: First come, first serve.
I love vintage Ferragamo shoes, and thus have acquired quite a collection of them. I already have these in navy, so I figure I probably shouldn't hold on to two pairs of of the same shoe but in different colors...really comfortable mid-height heel and perfect for everyday wear.

[SOLD] Anthropologie Moulinette Soeurs Floral Racerback Silk Dress

Item: Anthropologie Moulinette Soeurs Racerback Dress
Color/material: Cream with pink cotton trim and watercolor floral print, silk
Size: 0, fits true to size
Condition: brand new without tags
Retail: from Anthropologie for around $148, I think...I paid $70-80 on sale
Asking: $50, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA
Listing ends: First come, first serve.

Such a pretty dress, but I keep saving it for a "special occasion" and then never end up wearing it. The racerback and pink trim make it easy to dress down, and I would love to see this find a new home :)

[SOLD] Sophomore Shoulder Cut-Out Dress

Item: Sophomore Shoulder Cut-Out Dress, from Spring 2009
Color/material: Peach, it is lighter in color than depicted in the pictures, soft cotton, includes gray belt lined with soft suede
Size: size small, fits true to size
Condition: brand new without tags
Retail: $240, paid $117 from bonadrag (shipping was expensive!)
Asking: $80, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA. +$5 shipped to canada, +$10 for everywhere else.
Listing ends: First come, first serve.

The infamous Sophomore shoulder cut-out dress that was featured on so many blogs. I loved everything from that season's collection. I thought this would be the perfect casual/cool/wear all the time dress for me, but the color and fit is just not that great on me. I also have the double zipper skirt in gray from the same season that I may be listing soon.

[REDUCED] Biba Suede Polka Dot Platform Wedges

Item: Biba polka dot platform wedges
Color/material: Burgundy suede with off-white dots
Size: European 36, fits a 5.5-6
Condition: brand new in box with dust bag
Retail: The retail price on these was outrageous (upwards of $500), but I got them on super sale from yoox.com for about $90.
Asking: $50, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA. No international shipping, sorry!
Listing ends: First come first serve!

These shoes are too small for me, period. I am a 6-6.5, so when I ordered these I was hoping that a 36 would fit me, as it usually does. Wrong. Maybe lengthwise they would've worked, but they were too narrow. So if you've got small dainty feet, then these wedges will go perfectly with just about every LBD imaginable. They are beautiful and deserve to be worn.

[SOLD] Anthropologie Sanctuary Cropped Swing Jacket

Item: Anthropologie Sanctuary brand cropped swing jacket
Color/material: light mustard yellow, 55% linen/45% cotton
Size: size XS, fits true to size
Condition: it looks a bit wrinkly in the photos, but it is in great condition, no stains/holes
Retail: I think it retailed for $128, and I paid around $70 on sale
Asking: $15, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA
Listing ends: First come first serve!

One of my favorite Anthropologie purchases. I loved the color, the shape, the polka dot lining and the cute peter pan collar. I wore this a fair number of times over dresses, skirts, with jeans, shorts...it goes with everything. Perfect to throw on over the summer when the nights get a bit chilly. I am letting go of it because I've only worn it once or twice in the past year, I have too many jackets, and according to my self-imposed closet editing rules, that means I have to let it go.

Elie Tahari cotton dress, size small

Bought this at ROSS in Santa Barbara, CA in the summer of 2008, for a mere $50 (instead of $220). I've worn it once. Time to face facts, I just won't wear things that are less than 36" long. This is about 34" long. No tags, but in perfect, like-new condition. 100% cotton, semi-sheer, a dusty periwinkle blue. Attached full slip is made of charmeuse - feels like poly charmeuse. We are moving in July, so I need to clean out my closet!

Asking: $25, including shipping to continental US. Other locations, please ask.

Vertigo Paris cotton dress, xsmall

Vertigo Paris cotton dress. Sheer cotton, fully lined. Side on-seam pockets, keyhole neck detail, embroidery and cutwork on the yoke. Size XS. 32" long. Cleaning out my closet and I never wore this - I think I got it home and it was too short for my 6' frame. I kept thinking I'd find the perfect leggings to go with it, but I haven't.

Paid: I did NOT pay $260 for this. I paid $150 or $160 this summer. Original tag still attached, even has a spare button.

Price: $60 includes shipping to continental US. Other locations, please ask. Thanks!

NEW REPETTO Dark Grey Leather Lace-up Heels 39

These are an amazing pair of brand new Repetto ankle boots. They're known as the "Repetto King" Lace-up bootie and are incredibly hard to find. The smokey/dark grey leather upper and give this version a modern, subtle twist and these go perfectly with skirts,dresses, pants and jeans. Really comfortable and feminine, look amazing on the foot.
The photos don't really do the color justice. They're an amazing dark grey. Will try and take some more photos so let me know if you want to see them and I can send your way.
Just purchased from Fred Segal.

Why am I getting rid of them? It's really killing me but these are just a little too big! Was convinced I could make them work but alas they are not being worn and should go to a good home. I don't live in the States so can't even exchange them!
For those of you that haven't tried Repettos, their sizing fits 1/2 a size smaller. These would fit a US 8-8.5. (I'm closer to a 7.5).
· - Super soft leather, fabric lining and leather sole
· - Panelled front with tie fastening
· - Rounded toe and chunky mid heel
-Made in France
-2.5 " heel
Paid: $395+tax

Asking: $280+shipping

These come shipped new in box. Have only been tried on indoors.

Paypal preferred. Listing until these are claimed. Please leave contact information in Comments section. First one to claim these babies get them!

Shipping from Canada. Thanks!

{SOLD} hunter original tall wellington boots - US size 6M/EU 37

congrats, jenny!

dance-through-puddles-wellies...these original hunter wellies are a bit too big for me. would probably best fit someone who's a wider 6.5- true 7M. there's also room for insoles - but having only worn them a few times i can say that they are very cushiony and comfy in the rain!

Size: US 6M/European 37 - runs half a size large 
Materials: 100% rubber uppers and sole, woven nylon lining
Style Description: matte chocolate brown color. worn twice. they are slightly scuffed (though no damage or issues affecting the rubber at all), and i actually prefer this natural distressing as it looks quite nicely worn in, like you've been galavanting around the Glastonbury music festival :)
length of outsole: 9.75 inches
shaft height: 16"

shaft circumference: 15"

Paid: $115 on amazon
Asking: $55 with shipping (PayPal/shipping to US only)
