[SOLD] Ecote Piece Printed Top size small

this shirt was bought at an urban outfitters more than a couple months ago. and i was surprised to see that they were still carrying it online at a sale price (sad face). luckily (for you), they don't have it in a size small so this may be your chance.

i wore this only once. it's a cute top but for some reason it gets lost between all the other clothes in the closet. i bought it because of the geometric lines & colors. oh and i loved the piping on the sleeve. it is meant to be worn loose and i think it's a perfect spring/summer top.

made in india
100% cotton

armpit to armpit: ~19"
shoulder to bottom: ~24"
(1' margin of error)

paid price: $48
sale price: $20 (+$4 shipping)

Young Fabulous and Broke Grey Sleeveless Vest Small

New"Young Fabulous and Broke" grey vest tunic which has never been worn.

Very cool piece from the funky designer label from L.A., "Young Fabulous and Broke," snap button front and halter-like neck.

This was a little small for me so has not gotten any wear and has been sitting in my closet. Apologies the photos are not the best, the vest looks a bit wrinkled, as it's been sitting in my dresser, but has no flaws and is in perfect condition.

Material is a dark grey fleece/cotton with ribbed trim in a slightly darker color for contrast.
This tunic-like vest has a longer length and would look great worn over leggings or skinny jeans and layered. Could also be worn as a very cute short dress (which is what I had in mind when I bought it).
Size S (US 2-4)

Retail: $150+ tax and shipping
Asking: $15+shipping ($5 to Canada, $10 to US)Please leave contact information in Comments section if interested. Paypal preferred. Thanks!

Vintage Floral Red Pink Green Pleated Skirt Waist Size 13.5"

This is a lovely floral vintage pleated skirt. The material is semi-sheer, really pretty, just a little small for me in the waist. So perfect for summer and very on-trend with the floral pattern.I tried to capture the detail in the photos, however it's a little hard to tell. Photos don't do this skirt justice, the details, especially the pleats are amazing. Small pintucked pleats and pretty floral pattern. Side zipper and fasten.
In great vintage condition. Beautiful sheer red/pink/green floral pattern. Cute, flattering A-line cut.
Waist is 13.5" (measured from the front). Would best fit US 2-4.
Falls below the knee (I'm 5' 7 1/2'')
Asking: $20 including shipping to Canada ($5 extra to US)

3.1 Phillip Lim Silk Ascot Dress [Size 2]

Hi all,

I recently won this dress from the LoGE blog, but unfortunately the cut does not work well for me. It's a beautiful dress and I would love to find another home for it. Here are the measurements, and the original description, below. Thanks!
Bust: 17"
Waist: 13"
Hip: 18"
31" from shoulder to hem

"It is 100% silk crepe (but not too light) in a lovely forest green color. It should hit slightly above the knee on most women. The neck isn't as high as a turtleneck and is very flattering even to those with shorter necks like me. Sadly, the matching belt is lost (I believe there once was one, since there are belt loops, but I'm not sure since this was purchased via consignment), but you can easily substitute one of your own or wear it without one. Beautifully cut, like all of Lim's clothing, It's a great Fall/Winter transition piece into Spring.

Paid: Around $120 from a consignment store.
Asking: $60 + $5 shipping in US & Canada"

[Reduced] Rachel Comey Bergen Sandals, size 9.5

Rachel Comey Bergen Heel in Bone suede. Wood sole, 1" platform, 4" heel. This is really comfortable to walk in. Beautiful color, I love the tassel and fringe. This is a bit slim at the toe area and when it was on sale, the general advice was to go up 1/2 size.

Sadly for this shoe I think I am a size 9, and after much to-ing and fro-ing have decided to let this go.

Used around the apartment only. If you look at the photos there is a small mark on one toe area. This gets covered by the toes, and may be removed by some cleaning, but I thought I should point it out.

I purchased this for about $250, plus shipping. Yours for $110 (includes US shipping, without the RC box).

Listing ends May 4. Thanks for looking!

I bought this 10-15 years ago and barely wore it. I like the classic look of this jacket, but the cut doesn't suit my shape and I never really reached for it. It's been hanging in my closet a long time, and the denim still looks crisp and new.
