a.p.c. shirt dress, sz. 38 (4/6)


Congrats Jennifer!

i bought this dress 2 years ago at Stels but have only worn it a handful of times because it was a little tight in the shoulders. i just tried it on again, and i need someone to help pull it off me because it gets caught in the shoulders. plus, it's tighter than i'd like around the hips.

measurements:
shoulders--15 1/2"
chest--17 1/2"
waist--16 1/2"
hips--19 1/2"
length--34"

details:
this dress epitomizes a.p.c. at its best. super simple design, beautiful fabric and detailing, excellent fit. unlike their more recent designs, which seem to hang shapelessly on many of us, this one is fitted without being at all tight. the fabric is a lovely sturdy cotton-linen blend, and the color is a very soft pale lilac, almost a grey-taupe-lilac depending on the lighting. i would recommend wearing this during year-round, except when it's really hot. it also looks nice over pants.

imperfections:
none

costs:
i paid $240 (trying to learn from my mistakes, sigh), asking $50 including shipping.

uniform studio twofold skirt, sz 8



Congrats Kristien!

photos by martha

i bought this skirt last fall thinking it would work with the pregnancy. i even ordered a size up just in case, but in the end it made me look, well, huge. and now that i'm back in my regular clothes, the skirt is too big for me.

measurements:
waist--29" (should sit near natural waist)
hip--40"
length--should hit around the knee, depends on where you tie the waist. it was a little longer than knee-length on me.

details:
as with all of martha's creations, this skirt is subtly interesting, but also dramatic in its two folds (one at each side). it's a little tricky to get on, but once you figure out the folds and ties, it looks very polished and sharp.

imperfections:
none, never worn.

cost:
i paid $95, asking $45 including shipping

apc print dress, size 36




Congrats Arunasree!

i was super excited to find this dress a few years back. i didn't wear it more than 3 times though because it didn't work with bicycling. i just tried it on again, and now the shoulders are much too tight. they were always a little tight (i usually wear a 38 in apc), but now the dress hangs awkwardly. this is one of my all time favorite apc prints. i wish i had bought it in the blouse when i had the chance. oh well!

measurements:
shoulders--18" (more like 16" since it's slightly cap-sleeved)
chest--17"
waist--17"
length--38" from shoulders

details:
a very straight shape with a few pleats in the front and back, buttons down the front. a very summery and wonderful dress. very cute layered with a short-sleeved tee and sandals.

imperfections: none, like new condition.

costs:
i paid $85 on sale, asking $40 including shipping

ByCorpus Plaid Work Shirt, Medium -- Brand New with Tag


Congratulations, Jessica!

Purchased:
From Urban Outfitters on-line two weeks ago. I have never worn it -- it's straight from UO.

Condition:
Unworn and tagged -- fresh from Urban Outfitters

Why I am Parting with It:
The plaid is amazing, but I need a very lightweight cotton for these HOT Texas summers. This plaid would be great for summer and early fall if you live anywhere but Texas or Florida!! Also, I lost the packing slip and invoice, so I cannot return it to UO.

About the shirt:
From the Urban Outfitters description: "This classic, lightweight, plaid button-down work shirt is woven in premium double-cloth cotton. Topped with buttoned tabs at the sleeves for easy rolling and trimmed with epaulets. Finished with buttoned chest pockets and a curved hem. Exclusive to Urban Outfitters. Imported. Machine wash. Has a slim, flattering fit. 100% cotton, made in China." Shirt also has small pockets on the side. Each layer of the shirt has a different material -- the outside is plaid, the inside is a large-checked gingham. The two coordinate beautifully. So if you roll the sleeves up, you get a glimpse of the gingham.

Measurements:
26.75" from shoulder to hem
Bust -- 19" lying flat


Retailed for: $58

Asking: $20 (includes postage to US -- Canada is $2 extra)

End Date: June 22, 2009 -- please leave your email address with your comment. Thanks!

Hand wash. Rounded neckline with cap sleeves; slips on. Tents are hand-screened onto the cotton jersey.

Equestrian Victorian Flat Boots by Corso Como, size 9.5





Beautiful boots by Corso Como. The style name is "Sachi." Bought these at American Rag in San Francisco, new. An awesome score but bittersweet: they're too small for me. Worn three times and is in great condition--no major nicks or scratches on the exterior. Gorgeous, supple leather in a cute Victorian/Equestrian hybrid design. Note: the laces do not really lace up--they are for decor only. A real boot classic.

About the fit: They are a little narrow across the foot, but not terribly so. I took measurements across the widest part and it's 5.5" wrapped, so if you took your own foot and measured from the widest part of our foot on one side, and then to the other, you could see if these fit you.

Details: Made in Brazil. By the excellent shoe brand Corso Como. Perfect 1" Heel. Brass buckle at the top. Very roomy in the calf, so it can accommodate all kinds of calf sizes, but it's 16.5" circumference at the widest part. 11.25" outsole.

Color: Dark Brown

Size: 9.5M

Price: Original retail $245. Still available on Zappos.com and is on sale for $147. I paid over $100; you pay: $70, including shipping if in the U.S. Please let me know if you're outside of the U.S. thanks!
