ACNE Hex Jeans size 29




I bought these jeans at Bird in Brooklyn in the Spring. I am a huge fan of Acne, and the Hex jeans are a great staple for any wardrobe. I have determined that they are a little big for me, and they are also a little long for my unfortunately short legs...so because they are a little big I don't want to pay for them to get original hemmed. Sadly, I figured I will take my losses.

The size is 29/32.

I have worn them maybe twice, and washed once.

Paid: around $160

Asking: $75 includes shipping in the US

Listing ends: November 15

Steven Alan Cotton Blouse



I bought this top at the Steven Alan boutique in Brooklyn over the summer. I really love the construction of the blouse - it has a full second layer and a third trim, with a wooden button closure in the back. The colors are bright red, hot pink, and orange. Somehow I haven't worked the colors into my mostly grey/muted wardrobe so I'm hoping someone else can fully appreciate this super top. I only wore it once, and handwashed/airdryed once, smoke free. Basically new condition.

Size is Medium, will fit Medium to Large - fairly roomy on me and I'm a size 4-6. Great shape and nice cotton feel.

Paid: around 80 bucks
Selling for: 45 including shipping to US

End Date: November 15

Icy Grey/Blue Double-Layered Humanoid Top, Size XL (L, M)



Icy grey/blue top from Humanoid. It's a size XL, but could also work for a size L or M. The top is double-layered with a bubble hem at the bottom. A smooth cotton underlayer (subtly peeking out at the neckline) and a slightly more textured layer on top, very subtle. The material is really soft jersey, 80% cotton, 20% angora. I've only tried it on at home, never really wore it, because I came (reluctantly) to the conclusion that the colour doesn't really work for me. That's why I'm letting it go, despite it's beauty... It's still got the tags on.
Measurements: length 80 cm/31 inch, width 43 cm/17 inch (slightly stretchy material).
Asking 25 euros, including world-wide shipping (shipping from the Netherlands). Payment via bank-transfer or PayPal, I prefer PayPal.

Black Gharani Strok Dress, Size Small *Re-Listing With a Lower Asking Price*




Black drapey dress from British designer Gharani Strok, size small (uk 10, euro 36, US 6). It's from the A/W 2004 collection. It's 100% wool, but the material doesn't feel woolly or heavy at all, it's soft and drapy. The dress is bias-cut.
Letting this go because it's too small for me.

London Sole “Henrietta” Quilted ballet flats, sz. 38 or 7.5



This listing is on behalf of Iwa. Please email Erica (spinningjennie [at] gmail) with any questions.

London Sole “Henrietta” Quilted ballet flats

I’ve got a collection of London Sole ballet flats. This pair is the latest, and they’re practically new. Have been worn once, in excellent condition. Photo looks a little wonky and dark (sorry). Rest assured the are practically new and come clean from a non-smoking home. I figure I should let these go to a good home (the multiple pairs are starting to make me feel guilty).

If you know London Soles you’ll know they’re amazingly comfortable and versatile. These are called the “Henrietta” and have delicate craftsmanship, single to double stitching and are made of patent leather. They have a leather sole (like all London soles). Amazing color, like a lilac/violet blu-ish hue. Timeless!

Size 38, fits 7.5

I paid $245 from the on-line store.

Asking: $60+shipping. (without box, regular mail, within Canada $12, to US $15)

They can come in box if you want, but shipping will be more.

[SOLD] Navy blue wool sweatercoat, XS-M




About: Bought at Anthropologie last winter, have only worn it once or twice. The brand is "Sparrow". It is really soft and comfortable, with sort of naval style details. The double collar, buttoned cuffs, and back placket are all cool details, not to mention the little buttonable straps at the chest.

Color:
True navy blue with black

Material: the body is 100% lambswool and the trim/collar is nylon, but it looks like crepe.

Condition: excellent

Size:
labeled XS but easily accomodates a S, or even a M if you are small in the bust or leave it unbuttoned.

Why am I letting it go?
: I have too many navy blue wool sweaters and coats.

Paid: $148+tax

Asking: $60+shipping

Listing Ends: whenever someone claims it as their own!

[SOLD] Ikat print mini-dress or tunic/top S




About: Purchased this at a boutique, it's made by a woman who takes vintage clothing and re-constructs it to be modern and wearable. It's made out of a really pretty navy blue Ikat (Japanese?). I love the front pockets! Zips up on the side and has a keyhole button closure at the neck.

Color:
Navy blue with cream

Material: woven cotton, very soft with a good stretch.

Condition
: excellent

Size: S or XS, but I actually took it in in the upper waist by putting in some darts. If you are more of a S to M, I'm happy to take the darts out before sending it to you.

Why am I letting it go?: I feel like it is just a bit too short to be a dress on me and I don't do tunics or long shirts. I'm 5'8" and this would be great on someone a couple inches shorter as a minidress.

Paid: $210+tax

Asking: $50+shipping

About: ACNE Kate Rib Tank from S/S 2008. It's a really great piece for layering or wearing over leggings, you can scrunch it a bit and wear it as a tank as well. It's got a very modern construction and the scoop back is very flattering. I show it here as a dress but wouldn't recommend wearing it that way unless you want a lot of attention!!! I did wear it as a dress once with opaque tights and a sweater, though.

Color: the raised ribs are a faded maroon/brown and the inner ribs are blackish brown.

Material: 100% cotton. Semi-sheer.

Morelle Morchella Bag






first three photos from original listing on Etsy





I bought this lovely bag from the Etsy shop Morelle a few months ago (I'm a big fan of green!), but I haven't used it because realized I really need much larger bags to carry the amount of stuff I do around! I'm amazed by the handicraft of the seller, because it's so well made (it's details are fantastic!). And it has an adorable bow on the outside! From the original listing on Etsy (the link is below): "This Morchella is made out of forest green leather. The leather is a type of leather called 'Corrected grain leather' which is leather that has been sanded and treated extensively to remove any imperfections. The result is a very fine, durable, stain or scratch free leather. It is lined with resistant creme cotton. Ruffled on the top and bottom, one comfy strap, zippered closure, internal zippered pocket and cell phone pocket." I really hope someone else could enjoy it, since I'm not really using it! Too beautiful to just sit around...


Color: forest green


Materials: leather


Designer: Morelle


Dimensions:
13.7" /35cm across the opening
10.6" /27 cm in height
16" /41 cm across the bottom (may vary an inch or two from bag to bag because of the pleats)
11.4" / 29 cm the drop down length of the strap.

Vintage Beaded Purse w/ Snake Chain Handle




Whew. I think I am nearing the little things I have left to post.

This is a beaded vintage purse/clutch. It's probably from the 50s, but the lining is totally clean. Hinged opening...8"x 4"x 1.5"

This is cute, and I've had it forever. I hope someone else can have some fun with it!

Handknit Thin, Long White Scarf 62" x 3.5"



I made this scarf! But I would like for someone else to have it. It's thin and made of a super soft fleece-y material.

I will have a big visit to the post office in a couple of weeks to send the items I've posted recently on this blog, so I figure that I can send a few small things while I'm there.

Asking: $6 for shipping related stuff.

Thin Scarf With Cute Print



Fun scarf -- I typically use this size scarf to pull back my hair. Would be great around the neck, too, obviously. 21" x 62" Condition: good, not perfect. Gets the job done, etc.

Seven For All Mankind *Slight* Bootcut Jeans sz 25





I went downstairs to my storage space last night to pull out a pair of shoes I was sending to someone who responded to one of my listings here...and I found yet another box of clothes.

These are 7 for All Mankind "bootcut" jeans in a great black wash. (As you can see, the cut is quite straight.) I love the wash, but it's time for someone else to enjoy them. Size 25. I think 7 for all mankind jeans run large, so these 25s are fine for someone who wears 26-27 in most other labels. They'll be washed and pressed before being sent.

Rise: 8"
Inseam: 30.5" (I hemmed them myself by hand so you may want to re-hem them if you have a sewing machine.)
Waist: 14.5" (Measured flat, across.)

Asking: $27 including shipping. $3 more to Canada!

{relist} Delicate Beaded Choker with Hanging Stars



(This is a repost -- I paid so much for it, someone else should be enjoying it!)

Hi all,

This is a delicate beaded choker I bought at Scoop. It's in perfect condition -- worn maybe once or twice. Its length is adjustable (via two rings along its length) and can be worn either at 14", 13" or 12".

Please ignore my fly necklace. That is not part of the choker -- I forgot to remove it for the photo. Also, I notice that one of the stars appears to be missing a point. It was actually folded underneath the star and is fine but I didn't want to retake the photo. (Apologies!)

Paid: I paid $80 at Scoop NYC
Asking: $25 including shipping.

{relist} Adorable H M Corduroy Jacket - tons of details SZ Small (but more like XS)



I am relisting this because as fall comes around, I feel like it is a cute jacket that someone really should have (in other words, I am recommending it as a great jacket.)

Cute details - ribbed knit waist, zippered pockets, removable buckle detail at collar
I have worn this once -- it is essentially in the same condition as when I bought it.

Tags says size Small, but measure yourself carefully since I usually wear size 0-2 and this fits perfectly. I think is better described as XS.

Measurements (measured across lying flat)

Shoulder: 15"
Bust: 18"
Length: 21"
Sleeves: 23"

Why I'm getting rid of it: I have an entire closet of only "short" jackets! Making room!

Paid: $49.95 + tax in San Francisco
Asking: $20+6 shipping
