Esprit purple shirt dress, size S

This is a kind of polyester jersey-knit dress I got from the Esprit store ages ago, but have only worn out once or twice since it's so distinctive. The cut of the dress is great, very flattering, and the color is bright (I apologize for the inaccurate iPhone photos, but it's more like the second photo than the first). Very seventies Fanta-girl groovy, and it wears comfortably. Comes with a velveteen ribbon belt that fastens with an O-ring.

Label: Esprit
Size: Small
Bust: 15.5" flat across
Waist: 15.5" flat across
Hips: Free
Length: 37" collar to hem

Asking: $20 shipped

Listing ends Nov. 7 - thanks for looking!

laura ashley silk dress, size 12

I fell in love with the print of this Laura Ashley dress, but then after I got it I just... never really wore it. So silly.
The dress has got a beautifully draped top (I especially love the draping in the back) and a little keyhole neckline. It's fully lined, and the outer shell is a light, flowy, slightly sheer 100% silk.
In the pictures, the dress looks slightly out of proportion - that's because the skirt is cut on the bias. It also looks like the outer shell is a lot longer than the lining, but when you wear the skirt the proportions change, and there's no longer a visible sheer strip. Just making sure :)
Because the skirt is cut on the bias, it's hard to give exact measurements. The dress is labeled as a US size 12, EU 42, UK 16, and I'd say it fits true to size. On me (5'10''), the skirt hits just below the knee.
Now that I look at the pictures here, it looks like the print is in black. It's actually in light shades of blue.
Asking $30 + 8 for shipping (shipping from the Netherlands)
If you're interested or have any questions, please leave your e-mail address in the comments. On November 7th, I will randomly draw a winner.

Eurythmic Black Silk Cape Dress RELIST

This is a beautiful black silk cape dress from hard to find French label, Eurythmic. It has slits for arms, and slits for a belt to cinch waist in the front (looks incredible on). I lost the original belt it came with but any belt under 1" in width would look great with it, additionally the dress looks beautiful and dramatic left unbelted.

Size: French 42. (approx. a US 10, it's a totally open fit though. i'd say it would work for anyone in the M-L size range.)

I bought the dress at Oak in New York about a year and a half ago, paid around $240 and only ended up wearing it once. Selling it because I simply don't have any nice occasions to wear it to and would love to pass on such a great piece.

Asking $100 $80 plus shipping. Please comment with your name and email if you're interested!

Grey Ant Silk Tunic RELIST

I have a Grey Ant tunic dress I bought on Shopbop.com a couple of years ago. It is made of a beautiful dark grey silk, with a big V shape on the front (or the back, I wear it reversed) in a slightly lighter shade of silk, with a small tie closure. It retailed for around $400, I bought it on sale for about $150. Worn about a dozen times, dry cleaned once, a couple of small slightly darker stains on the V section (barely noticeable). Size L.

Was $50, now $35 plus shipping, please leave your name and email in the comments if you are interested!

3.1 phillip lim black dress (XS)

Cute cotton baby doll-style dress by 3.1 phillip lim in black, sz. xs.

Purchased on a recent visit to INA in Soho, a consignment boutique - let's just say the staff was very persuasive, but I've since concluded it's too "youthful" for me. It's a genuine xs (0), though could easily fit a s (2) as it is cut generously. I'm 5'4" and the hem falls just above the knee.

The dress, like all INA items, is in excellent condition, with hardly any sign of wear. There is a nice fold-over detail on the neckline, sleeves, and hem that sets this dress apart. The dress is lined (in same black cotton material as dress) and has a slight pouf and swing, but not as exaggerated as a bubble hem. Great for fall, or all year around.

Paid: $125
Asking: $125 (shipping included), via paypal

Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt, size 8 [Re-list, price reduction]

comes up on the list!

Marc by Marc Jacobs skirt, size 8

i really do want to get this skirt out of my closet, it takes up a bit of space and hasn't been worn in over 3 years!

marc jacobs wool skirt (size 8).

i bought this at the barneys outlet 3 years ago, but the length isn't very flattering on me. it's also a little too big,  at the time the price was too tempting...lesson learned. the fit is quite nice, though, because of the curved panels. it has a retro-silhouette and is warm enough for winter wear.

flat measurements:
waist--16 1/2"

fully lined
front diagonal pockets
intricate shaping seams at front and back
as far as i can tell, it is a fitted silhouette that hugs the hips and then flares out at the knees, which probably explains why it doesn't look as good if it sits too low on the hips.
fabric content--65% wool, 27% nylon, 5% acrylic, 3% polyester

none. worn twice.

can't remember what i paid, but it was at the outlet, probably around $100
asking $30 including shipping and delivery confirmation

rodarte for target lace cardigan, sz M, NWT [price change]

i bought this cardigan for my mom--along with the black version--last christmas. she brought the yellow one back in august, unworn with tags attached. since i can no longer return it, i thought i should offer it on LoGE. as much as i like the cardigan, the color is not right for my skin tone.

size M, fits 6-8 (4-6 if you want to button it since it's long and narrow).

paid $30
asking $24 including shipping with delivery confirmation.
