SOLD. Anthropologie Sweater, XS

Congratulations Erin!

This listing is for a marigold, swing-style sweater from Anthropologie. I love that it is easy to integrate into most everyday outfits and is definitely a sweater that can bring you through this season transition. I have a partiality to yellow sweaters but have recently felt the need to massively downsize my closet, so this beauty is now up for grabs.

Length: 18"
Across (under the arms): 16" "closed", but can accommodate, as there is no closure
Long sleeves

Asking: $20 + $5 shipping

This listing will end on March 7. Thanks!

SOLD. Marc by Marc Jacobs Hoodie, XS

Congratulations Emy!

This listing is for a teal, fleece hoodie. There are patch pockets at the chest and zip pockets right above the hip area. The hood also zips open, as shown on the second picture, and is lined with sherpa. It was purchased several years ago from Saks, but was worn only a once and dry cleaned once, which has kept the material in excellent condition.

Length: 21" from shoulder
Across: 14" the shoulder from seam to seam
17" under the arms

Asking: $50 + $5

This listing will end on March 7. Thanks!

SOLD. Marni Pleated Shoulder Grey Blouse, 40

Congratulations Julie!

This listing is for a brand new, size 40, dark grey cotton Marni top. I found this on sale @ the Marni store in L.A. and fell in love with it and purchased it hastily. I say hastily because it unfortunately does not fit me. I only took a picture of the front because the back is a perfect reflection of the front-- neckline, pleats, and all. The best part is that there are hidden pockets at the seams. It is 16.5" across the shoulder, 18" across the chest, and 23" from the shoulder to the hem. If you're interested, please leave your name and e-mail address.

Asking: $75 + $5 shipping

This listing will end on March 7. Thanks!

SOLD. Chie Mihara Sandals, 7

Congratulations Erin!

This listing is for a pair of worn-only-once Chie Mihara black ankle wrap sandals. They were the last pair at La Garconne and I couldn't help but snatch them up-- full price-- despite the fact that I knew they were a whole size too large for me. However if you're a size 7 and are looking for a pair of beautifully constructed, wonderfully comfortable spring sandals made of very soft leather, these are for you!

Asking: $100 + $5 shipping

This listing will end on March 7. Thanks!

SOLD. Zambos & Siega Handbag

Congratulations Tamara!

Zambos & Siega Handbag
Color: bronze/pewter
Material: leather

Although its proportions suggest otherwise, this is a very generously sized handbag (over 12" across, 8" high, 7" deep). The handles are extremely sturdy and the leather extremely soft. The kicker is the satin lamb-printed lining-- adorable!

Asking: $50 shipped

This listing will end on March 7. Thanks!

SOLD. Marc by Marc Jacobs Blue Velvet Flats, 36

Congratulations Nancy!

This listing is for a pair of deep blue velvet Marc by Marc Jacobs flats (purchased from Nordstrom). They've only been worn a few times, are in excellent condition, and will be shipped in their original shoebox. I'm a standard size 6 and feel that these shoes fit like a true 6. And the straps are actually velcro (not the usual buckles), which I find convenient. (:

Asking: $55 + $5 shipping

Please leave your name and e-mail address and a winner will be chosen at random on March 7.

Cynthia Rowley Black Pumps

Cynthia Rowley

new pumps. Worn once on carpet. Absolutely fab condition.
Size 6.5
Black leather.
Leather lining and sole.

Paypal only. selling for 60 $ + Shipping.

vintage leather trench

I have had this vintage oxblood leather double-breasted trench for years and maybe worn it 6 times. It's just plain too big and I don't like the look on me. I haven't given it up before now because it is in perfect condition. There is one scratch the size of a pinhead on one shoulder seam (can provide photos if you like). Otherwise, all seams are strong, the lining is perfect (no holes, no pulling), the buttonholes are reinforced, all original matching buttons are still on the coat including the interior one (to secure the double-breasted style) and one extra button, tacked down low on the lining, in case you ever lose one. There is a matching adjustable belt, adjustable straps on the sleeves, even a little strap and buckle to close the top of the collar up around your neck.

measurements (laid flat, so double these):
bust (armpit to armpit) 19.5 inches/48.75 cm
waist (on the seam/where the belt is at): 18.5 inches/46.25 cm
hip (measured at top of pocket detail): 20 inches/50 cm
hip (measured at bottom of pocket detail): 21.5 inches/53.75 cm

$25 includes shipping to continental US; other, please ask. Winner will be randomly selected on March 7; or, if no one has claimed it by then, the first commenter.


SOLD! Frye Engineer 12R-- 7.5

I thought I'd never get my feet into these quick enough, but alas, in the 8 months since I got them, I've only worn them about a dozen times. Hard to believe with such a classic boot, but I feel that they don't really "fit" with the rest of my wardrobe...

They're a true size 7.5, in my opinion. You can read hundreds of reviews re:quality&sizing here and here. They cost $200 new and never go on sale.

Mine have been worn very little (a dozen times at most), are in excellent condition, and are just beginning to break in nicely.

Asking: $100, plus $20 for shipping (they're heavy).

End date for listing: March 7th. THANKS MICHELLE!

SOLD! Pucci hat

How rad is this Pucci hat? So mod, so 60s-psychedelic, so classic Pucci, it makes me think of Vespas, gelato and the set of Quadrophenia, Italian style.

Bought on Yoox for about $120 (and that was on sale). It's a size medium. I'm afraid I don't know how to take a circumference measurement, so "medium" is what you have to go on. If your head is average-sized, neither small nor large, and most hats fit you fine, this will fit you.

Reason I want to sell it: I already have a plethora of sun hats (prevent premature aging!), and I also should have got it in a size large because I prefer a looser fitting hat for summer (even though I look rather silly when a breeze knocks it off my head).

This has never been worn-- it is NEW WITH TAGS.

The lining is 100% cotton; the shell is 62% cotton, 38% poly (it has a velveteen texture). Made in Italy. Totally classic Pucci, unmistakable and iconic.

Asking: $70, free shipping in the US.

List ends: March 7th.

[SOLD!] Vena Cava Dress -- Size 4

Congrats, Winnie!

Adorable silk dress from Vena Cava. Size 4. Design reminds of the 1920s but without veering into a literal interpretation of flapper style. Main color best described as cocoa (best captured in first photo), accented by attached scarf and waist accent in black-blue and white pick-stitching. Scarf can be worn a number of different ways -- hung loose, draped over one shoulder, tucked in the other side, etc. Check out the detail in the back! Rolled short sleeves. Neckline is a squared-off vee. Unlined.

Worn once. Slight flaw on one shoulder where the silk has maybe gotten caught on a hanger. Barely noticeable but I tried to capture it in the last photo. There are also two very, very faint spots on the skirt front near the bottom. I couldn't even get my camera to capture them; will most likely come out with dry cleaning. Imperfections accounted for in asking price.

Approximate measurements:

Bust: 17"
Length: 36"
Waist: 14.5"

Paid about $200 on sale from Una in Portland, OR. Asking $50+$5 shipping.

Listing ends Friday, March 5. Please leave email address in comment!

[SOLD!] United Bamboo Folding Belt Dress -- Size 6

Congrats, Carissa!

Adorable dress from genius Japanese label United Bamboo, size 6. Fine navy wool (like suiting material -- smooth hand, not itchy or nubby at all). Relaxed silhouette with adjustable button belt. When belt is buttoned, skirt has a shape something like a tulip a-line, if that makes sense. Gathered cap sleeves, bateau scoop neck. Side pockets. Fully lined. Worn once and in new condition. Only selling because it's too large for me.

Marked a size 6 but I think this one could fit a size 8 too. Please check approximate measurements:

Bust: 18-19 inches
Length: 36 inches
Waist: 15 inches.

Originally purchased from Totokaelo (where first photo is from). Asking $75 + $5 shipping.

Listing ends Friday, March 5. Please leave email address in comment!

[SOLD!] Banana Republic Grey Wool Dress -- Size 4

Congrats, Alicia!

Cute and very work-appropriate grey dress from Banana Republic. Size 4. Fine wool/poly blend with some stretch. Fully lined. Side zip. Worn 1 or 2 times, dry cleaned, and then never worn again (hence this post!). Slight empire waist and lovely tucks on front bodice. Cap sleeves. Neckline shows off your neck and collarbones but isn't too low.

Approximate measurements:

Bust: 17" (darts allow for 1-1.5 inch give)
Waist seam: 14"
Length: 36"

Paid about $100 on sale, asking $20 + $5 shipping.
