[REDUCED] Batik Print Shorts Size 2

Last summer I purchased several pairs of handmade cotton shorts from a local boutique. I believe these were made by an independent designer? I have never seen this line elsewhere. The material is a washed out batik pattern with dark batik pattern details. They zip up the back and are medium rise. I wear a few pairs of these in different prints but have a couple which I haven't gotten around to wearing yet, if there is interest shown in these, I will probably post the others.

Size: 2, I almost always wear a 2 or 26 in pants etc, these fit true to size.
Materials: 100% cotton batik, gorgeous and unusual looking!
Condition: never worn, brand new
Paid: $150
Asking: $50 NOW $35+shipping
Listing ends: June 15, random drawing to select recipient
(I will be out of town until June 15 but will be able to respond to any questions)

[SOLD] steven alan reverse seam LS, size P

Enjoy, Katelyn!

I was a "bit" overzealous with the SA sample sale and got a few tooooo many tops. These are still available on the SA website, so I'm offering it at a discount. Truth be told, I bought two of them by accident in the same size and color... I was in a rush to get SA sample stuff and didn't check over my cart. WOOPSY- someone can benefit from my error.
Color is washed indigo, Size P.
Asking $88 NOW $75+shipping, $53 less than the $128 I paid. Here's a link to it on the SA site:

[Sold] Printed 50/50 Tee, size XS-S

This is a 50/50 poly/cotton tee from Urban Outfitters. Tag reads "in love by 2 a.m.". It's labeled a medium, but I think it fits more like an xsmall/small. The color is accurate in the photos (at least if you have a mac.) I love the print, but I don't really wear printed tees anymore. It's been worn maybe twice.

14" across shoulders
16" across chest
23" long

Paid $23, asking $12, includes shipping. Paypal only.

Sik handmade scarf

Beautiful (almost pistachio) green and brown 100% pure silk scarf.

Size : A Generous 42 inches by 42 inches.

Has a beautiful subtle silk sheen. Never worn.

Can use as a head scarf as well or as a graceful neck scarf for a splash of color.

The silk scarf is 100% dyed by artisans by hand. (Please note that the scarf has minor almost invisible quirks and there - not a defect but purely because this is handmade.)

Beautiful lightweight feathery feel.

A true heirloom item.

Asking 35 $ including shipping. (was 45 before)

Acne Jun Delta blouse (NEW)

(First two pictures from Stand Up Comedy, last is mine)

I bought this blouse from Stand Up Comedy this past fall, but have been unable to incorporate it into my wardrobe since then. I think it's because I'm not sassy enough, since I just can't pull off the skinny jeans w/top look (thunder thighs, you see). And since I need to make money to pay off those dreaded student loans, I must let her go! The top is very structured, with shoulder pads, pleats emanating from the shoulders, and a "bra peak-a-boo" hole in the back (okay, that just sounded trashy. it's not). The hem at the bottom is also raw, and there are two panels of the fabric in the front, whereas there is only one in the back (slightly more see-through). Overall, a very free flowing top. The details:

Brand: Acne

Purchased: Stand Up Comedy

Color: Buttery yellow

Fabric: Silk and polyester mix

Size: Medium

Worn: Never

Price Paid: $145

Price Asking: $85, including domestic shipping (the difference for foreign shipping can be added)

Rachel Comey Carson Flats, size 8/8.5 -- SOLD!

Congrats, Leanne!

The closet cleaning continues: Rachel Comey Carson flats, size 8. Brand new, in original box. I bought these from Stel's crazy end of season sale a few months ago. They are speckled, black and white pony hair and absolutely gorgeous. The only issue is that while I bought my regular size, these run a bit large and would be more suitable for an 8.5. I could make them work with inserts, but I'm too lazy. Somehow buying new stuff is less arduous than altering the things I already own. Sigh.

Paid: Around $150
Asking: $120 + $8 shipping [shoes are a bit heavier; I will ship these in their original box].

Listing ends on June 4. Please remember to leave your email address in your comment!

Madewell patent oxfords, size 8 -- SOLD!

The closet cleaning continues: Madewell black patent leather oxfords, size 8 (true to size), leather lining. I bought these last Fall and never wore them as much as they deserved. In excellent condition. The only condition issue I want to point out -- and it is a very minor one, in my opinion, but I wanted to give all pertinent info -- is that the heels are slightly pitted on the bottoms because I must have walked on gravel. Upper is pristine. Shoes will ship in a shoebox, though not the original.

Paid: about $125
Asking: $45 +$8 USPS priority shipping [shoes are heavier].

Soundgirl thermal heart top

This is a thermal I bought a few years ago but haven't worn very often, though I think it would look quite cute with a denim jumper. All the trimmings and hearts (on the elbows) are made of a red cotton fabric, whereas the rest of the top is a multicolored thermal. Very comfortable and made well!

Brand: Soundgirl

Size: Large (but fits me snugly, and I'm a small/medium)

Price Paid: $40-ish

Price Asking: $15 + $5 shipping (domestic, international different)

RELIST: Jcrew Sandals

These here are a pair of J Crew sandals I recently bought only to wear them out once and reluctantly realize that they were just a little too big. Super comfy, no wierd rubbing, just too big! Note, these have only been worn ONCE.

They're sold out in this color on the site but you can see all the details HERE.

Paid: $88
Asking: $50 + $5 shipping without box ($10 with box)

Bon & Ging Dress, size 6

Beautiful dress by now-shuttered, indie Los Angeles designers Bon & Ging. Size 6. Raw silk with a slightly textured hand, fully lined in cotton. On seam pockets, gorgeous stitched detail at bodice, and a cut-out back (sexy without being revealing). Super-cute with casual flat sandals, but also can be dressed up with heels for a summer wedding. I love the color of this dress -- it's flattering for all skin tones and neutral enough to pair with pretty much every color of the rainbow. Worn maybe 3 times; in excellent condition.

Approximate measurements:

Overall length = 36"
Bust = 17" (with some room to give because of pleating/darts)
Hips = 20"

I purchased this lovely navy shirtwaist dress via laws of general economy, last August. Unfortunately, the shape is just not right for me, and the dress has remained in my closet ever since. It's a beautiful garment and in very good condition.

Price: I paid $50 and am asking the same, including shipping from Montreal.

Posting ends: May 31, 2010

I've included Joyce's original posting below:

[image of dress on model from Dace website]

About Item
: Adorable shirtdress from Dace, Spring/Summer 2008, I think. V-neck that is just deep enough (though not so deep that you would need a cami or anything underneath). Functional buttons. Slight dolman sleeves. Skirt is lined. Waist drawstring and side pockets! Hits a couple of inches above my knee (I am 5'6").

Color: Navy blue.

Material: 62% viscose / 38% cotton

Condition: Very good to excellent. Worn only a few times. [Please excuse the wrinkles from storage.]

Approximate Measurements: Small. I would say the top could fit a Small or Medium, though the hip area is definitely true to size.

Why am I letting it go?: I haven't worn this for about a year. Time to let it go to a good home.

Paid: About $200.

Les Prairies de Paris Blue Shorts, size 2 [sold]

Les Prairies de Paris shorts (size 2) in a 100% medium blue lightweight cotton that has a very smooth, cool hand to it. There's pockets in front and back, with the back ones being very decorative and cute-- kind of look like tulips. There's a button-fly with nice brass colored buttons. My hips seem to be getting wider so I'm letting these go.

15" across the waistband
18" across the hips
8" rise
8" inseam

There's a little hole at the bottom of the button fly as shown in the second photo. It happened after the first time I washed them in the machine. (Yeah, I was pretty pissed.) I still wore them afterwards several times because it's not very noticeable and it'd be easy to mend.

Paid $60 (on huge sale from Hejfina), asking $10, includes shipping. Paypal only.
