{RELIST} Rachel Comey Margot Flats, Size 40

Item: Rachel Comey Margot flats

Color & Material: Buttery black leather

Size: 40 (I'm usually a 9 or 9.5, and they're a perfect fit.  However, I find my feet to be a bit narrow for this shoe.)

Condition: Worn out 3 or 4 times

History: I bought these amazing flats here in June.  They are totally awesome, but as it turns out, the style of shoe just doesn't really fit my foot.  My heel is constantly slipping out of the strap, and they feel like a bit of a waste in my closet.  Hopefully someone else can still get some wear out of them this summer!  They're too beautiful to pass up.  Upon receiving them in the mail, I threw out the actual shoe box, so they'll be sent to you in their dust bag only.

Paid: $125 here on LoGE

Asking: $120, includes shipping to anywhere
$95, includes shipping

I'll randomly choose a winner on August 7, 2010.  Thanks for looking!  Please feel free to email if you have any questions.

[SOLD] Vintage Banana Republic Coat, S or M


I purchased this (pretty much my dream coat!) in hopes it would fit me as it does on the model above, as a slightly slouchy layering piece. Unfortunately it's a bit too large on me, and I'm hoping someone else would like it... I'm 5'5" and usually an XS sometimes a S, this would be best for a true S or M. See below for original description- all perfectly accurate.

Vintage 80s Banana Republic army green parka coat jacket with buttons up the front and two sets of pockets on either side (one set at the waist and the other at the hips.) Quilted with a plaid flannel lining inside and satin lined round the bottom. Pretty sure this has never been washed or worn before, as I found the plastic tag holder but no tag still attached to the jacket (it probably ripped off years back) and the jacket is in PERFECT condition and looks like-new. Sleeves can be turned up to reveal the plaid lining around the cuffs.

Marked a size XS
100% cotton shell, and SUPER soft

Will fit a mens size XS
Will fit a womens size S/M

Measurements, lying flat:
Bust: 22"
Shoulder: 19.5"
Sleeve length: 21"
Total length: 31"

Paid $76
Asking $76
Ends on August 3

Jerome Dreyfuss Charles handbag

small front pocket, single interior pocket
all snaps and clasps function well
attached key ring and working flashlight!

top handle
longer strap - can be work over the shoulder or cross-body

This is a lovely purse and all in all, I carried it for about a month. The color is a fabulous steel-blue called petrol. There is some slight variation in color due to normal wear on the front and on the bottom four corners as well. The photos that I posted actually make it look worse than it is!

[REDUCED] Graham and Spencer White Cotton Dress

Graham and Spencer White Cotton dress
gently worn, like new condition
size medium - fits true to size

armpit to armpit measurement is about 20.5"

This lovely dress has only been worn a couple of times. I have been waiting to wear it this summer, but after having a baby it is just a bit too tight around the bust for me. The cotton is lightweight and breezy. There is lovely lace detail down the front of the dress and over the buttons. The drop-waist makes for a really comfortable fit - perfect for these hot summer days. I hope that someone will wear it!

SOLD Swedish Hasbeens High Braided Sandals [Size 6-6.5] REDUCED

Up for sale is a pair of Swedish Hasbeens in a lovely nude color. This is the "Braided High" style that retails (on endless.com) for $199. They have a 2.5" heel and a 1" platform -- (not that high at all, really!). They are super lightweight and comfortable.

While they are a nude color right now, Swedish Hasbeens says that if you treat them with some oil and let them tan in the sun, they will develop into a lovely caramel color like in the little thumbnail in the first pic. I haven't done anything to them, so you can choose which color you want to have!

These shoes are practically new. I've worn them twice for very brief periods of time, and they don't show any wear but for a small stain on the ankle strap of the right shoe (pictured). A cobbler may be able to take this out if you wish.

Fit-wise, they seem to run a bit long, though I found the width normal. I consistently wear a 6.5, and these fit me perfectly. I'd recommend them for those with shoe sizes 6-6.5.

Size: Tagged 36, but fits 6-6.5
Condition: Practically new. See above. Worn twice, very briefly
Paid: Retail, $199.
Asking: $100 + $10 shipping (in US, a bit more for International) REDUCED: was $120

BCBGirls Black Patent Peeptoe Booties [Size 6] REDUCED

These are a brand new & never worn pair of BCBGirls black patent leather oxford heels. I love the chunky heel shape and really wish they fit. They are marked 6.5, but are too small for me, and I am pretty consistently a 6.5, so I'd recommend them to a size 6 or perhaps a narrow size 6.5. They have a 4" heel.

I have the original box for these, so if you'd like them shipped in the box, I'd be happy to oblige, but if not, you can save a bit in shipping (see below).

Size: Tagged 6.5, but would better fit a 6
Condition: Brand new in box, never worn.
Paid: $60 on sale
Asking: $27 + $8 shipping without box or $12 shipping with. REDUCED Was $35

Steven Alan Liberty of London Top [XS/S] REDUCED

This shirt is made with genuine Liberty of London fabric (such an amazing print!!) and is from a few seasons ago. The style isn't on the SA website right now, so I'm not sure what it is called, but I bought it from the Steven Alan store in LA on sale.

The shirt is in brand new condition. I have never worn it, but I did remove the tag to run it through the dryer once (my way of cleaning new clothing). Other than that, it is straight from the store and has just been hanging out in my closet.

The fit on this shirt is pretty loose, and I'd say that it would fit both the tagged P/XS or an S. It has slightly elasticated puffed sleeves. It would look excellent tucked in to a high waisted skirt or untucked with denim shorts. The Liberty print is just perfect for summer!

Size: Tagged P (XS), but would fit S also
Condition: Brand new, never worn.
Paid: Probably retailed around $180? I paid $120 + tax
Asking: $60 + $5 shipping (in US, a bit more for International) REDUCED (was $75)

SOLD Jovovick-Hawk for Target Floral Dress [XS/S] REDUCED

I bought this right when the Jovovich-Hawk collection for Target came out, as it was my favorite from the collection. I loved the print mixing and the sleeves. However, I've only worn it a few times since I think I'm too petite for a dress so loose and swingy, so I'm letting it go here. It's in really good condition, and has no flaws to speak of. I think it would also fit a small well, since it's so loose.

If you missed out the first time around, here's your chance to score this gorgeous dress! Looks great belted or worn loose.

Size: Tagged XS, but would probably fit S
Condition: Very good, worn a few times
Paid: Retail of $40
Asking: $17 + $5 shipping (in US, a bit more for International) WAS $20

Cynthia Vincent Luella Wedges (Size 6.5) Brand New! REDUCED

[These kind of got lost in the massive influx last weekend, so I'm listing again]

These are a brand new pair of black Cynthia Vincent Luella gladiator wedges. They are of exceptional quality with some of the softest leather inside and out. Absolutely amazing, and the ultimate summer sandals. These are super popular and seem to have sold out everywhere. Great working buckles for a perfect fit and working zip down the middle. These have been seen on Rumi of Fashion Toast here and here. I really wish they worked for me. I bought these last year, but the same style has also been produced this year.

I used some stock product images, since the shoes are absolutely brand new, but I can take some actual photos if you'd like. These will be sent with original box and dust bag.

Size: 6.5, true to size.
Heel: 4.5" with a 1" platform. Super comfy, since they are wedges!
Condition: Brand new in box with dustbag.
Retail: $405, approximately, but are out of stock everywhere to my knowledge.
Asking: REDUCED (was $240) $210 + $10 shipping without box, $15 shipping with box in US. More for international.

Chie Mihara Nude Slingbacks [Size 7] REDUCED

I feel like I'm seriously going to regret selling these beautiful Chie Miharas, but I have to come to terms with the fact that they are too big for me. They are soft soft soft nude leather with delicate perforations and an adjustable front buckle strap. They have been worn very briefly about twice, and are basically perfect aside form the wear on the sole.

I do have the original box for these, which I can ship them in if you choose. They also come with a dustbag and extra heel taps -- so handy! They retailed for nearly $400, I believe, and have the quality and detail to prove it. They have a 4" heel and a little .5" platform for some comfort. They are made of amazingly soft leather inside and out, and perfect for spring and summer, and would even transition well into fall since nude is definitely on-trend right now.

Size: 7 (37) and runs true to size. Could fit 7.5 due to the slingback style and adjustable front buckle.
Condition: Practically new, worn briefly 2 times. Comes with box (optional) and original dustbag & spare heel taps.
Paid: $260-ish on sale at Sodafine, Retail: $400-ish
Asking: $150 + $10 without box or $15 with box.

Biviel Yellow T-strap Perforated Sandals [Size 6.5] REDUCED

A great pair of Yellow Biviel t-strap leather sandals. How rare are yellow shoes!? That's why I originally got this pair, not to mention the great teardrop cutout and the strap details around the foot. This is another pair that I hate to part with, but I have finally realized that t-straps don't like my feet.

I have worn these shoes around a bit, but they're in pretty good condition. They have a nice 4" heel and a .75" platform for comfort. They seem to run true to size, and provide really great arch support. Very nicely cushioned interior. They are leather inside and out with a synthetic sole (I think). Really comfy. I'll be sad to see them go. They would look equally great with a bateau top and some jeans or with a pretty dress.

Size: 6.5, true to size
Condition: Good, worn around a bit
Paid: Retail of $140-ish?
Asking: $42 + $8 shipping (in US, a bit more for International)

F-Troupe Studded Bow Flats [Size 37]

It breaks my heart that these flats are too big for me, since I think they are just about the cutest things ever! Adorable 3-D bow with studs going down the center. They are mad of iridescent (think nail polish) patent leather that looks either maroon or olive green/gold-ish -- surprisingly subtle. You must see them in person to really understand how awesome they are! Lining is leather, and the sole is synthetic.

They have been worn a few times but are in good condition. The front ball-of-foot area has darkened due to some gel inserts I had there before, not from my feet ;). There is also a small scuff on the left shoe right by the heel. Neither is noticeable when wearing, and they are in very good condition otherwise.

Size: Tagged 37, should fit a 7 or 7.5
Condition: Good (see above), worn a few times
Paid: Retail of $130-ish
Asking: $40 + $8 shipping (in US, a bit more for International) REDUCED: Was $55
