RELIST/REDUCED: R by 45 rpm Japan ivory felted wool sweater M



I got this amazing felted wool sweater from the R by 45 rpm store in Soho. It has a small button detail on the right side near the hem, and two subtle spiral details—one on the neckline and one on the left sleeve (these represent the label). It is handmade in Japan, and it is honestly one of the nicest garments I own in terms of quality. I am letting it go because it is too big for me so I rarely wear it.

Color: Ivory
Material: 100% felted wool
Size: 4 (approximately a medium), measure 27" long (measured down the back), approx. 20.5" across under armpits
Condition: Worn a couple times in like-new condition

Paid: $320
Asking: $60 + shipping

Relist: Frye Erin Oxfords, 7.5/8 *SOLD*

I received these last March from a lovely LoGer, but have never worn them.

Size: They are a size 7.5. I am a pretty average 7.5, but they are a bit big on me (I tried them on with an insole and they fit better).  I think they'd comfortably fit a size 8 as well. Here are the outer sole measurements: 10 1/2" long and 3 3/4" at the widest point across.

Condition: They are in excellent condition except for some wear on the soles (see photo; according to the original owner they were worn 4 times only). I have cleaned/conditioned, polished, and waterproofed them so they are ready to go for Fall! Will be mailed in the original box.

A classic style in a great dark neutral brown, great Frye quality!

Price: The original LoGer paid $178 for them; I paid $107, and am asking for $90, including shipping in the U.S.

Listing ends September 9th.

RELIST/REDUCED: Vintage Black Oxford-Style Ankle Boots 7/7.5




Awesome vintage black ankle oxford-style booties with a stacked wooden heel. These shoes have great proportions and I love them but they are just too small for my feet. I am generally a large 7.5 or 8. I would suggest these for a 7 or small 7.5. Great for fall. I had them completely resoled and polished at LeatherSpa in NYC, so they are in perfect condition.

Color: black
Material: Leather upper, and new leather sole with rubber tipped wooden heal
Size: 7/7.5, measure 9 3/4" long, 3 1/4" wide
Condition: Vintage, but like new condition

Paid: $45 + $50 to have them resoled
Asking: $40 + shipping

Shoulders: 15" from seam to seam
Bust: 16"
Waist: 15"
Length: 50"

It's a very lightweight light blue cotton with two front pockets and buttons on the sleeves, and one on each sleeve to have the option for short sleeves. Sailor collar has dark blue satin feeling ribbon on it. Fits a size xs or s well, fitted in the shoulder area , loose through the body.

Black Corso Como Flats 8.5/9






Item: Black Corso Como flats, style "Fabulous".

Color & Material: Naturally treated black leather upper and sole. (Corso Como prides themselves on this! Their leather is quite nice, and they employ crafting practices that are more environmentally friendly)

Size: 8.5 M These run a little large- I'm usually a 9 and while slightly snug now, will stretch nicely with wear.

Condition: Worn once, indoors, for a total of two hours. Very little wear on the soles, and little stretch.

History: I bought these shoes this spring thinking that I would wear them all the time. Unfortunately, my feet thought otherwise-- I have terrible arches and need serious support, so I can really only wear Birkenstocks or have insoles in my shoes. These shoes have a really comfortable gel system, and are soft, supple leather, and will break in nicely.

Paid: $98.95, plus a ridiculous amount of Chicago tax (sigh!)

Asking: $85, includes shipping with the box (Corso Como recommends you store the shoes in the box, and it's nice to have a box, no?)

Feel free to email me mindorific (at) yahoo (dot) com with any questions! Please leave your email in the comments section, and I'll select a winner at random Monday, September 6.

Cheers!

Something Else by Natalie Wood dress



Super cute Something Else by Natalie Wood dress I bought a few years ago at the now-closed boutique I Heart. I was obsessed with the weird animal print on it and bought it on sale (it was originally about $200 I think) but I never wore it. It's been sitting in my closet ever since and I would love to pass it on to someone who might actually wear it.

Marked size 10 but fit is open. Made of 100% cotton.

Now asking $25 plus shipping. Leave your name and email in the comments if you're interested :)

Size is Euro 40/US 10.
I paid about $100 USD in London, and never wore these once.
Asking $40 plus shipping. Leave your name and email in the comments if you're interested, first come first serve!

handmade button-back top via Etsy



I bought this top last year but haven't worn it much as I realized I just can't pull of the color pink. But what I love the most about the top (and what originally drew me to it) are its details: the elaborate pintuck on the chest, the frill hem and cap sleeves, and the buttons lining the back. I included the bottom picture to show some minor wear, those small fabric bubble things that pop up on sweaters, etc. (they're really just on the sides under the armpits from me wearing cardigans, and on the inside of the hem). See the original listing here, and feel free to leave a comment w/any questions!

Color: Light pink

Fabric: Cotton with embroidered details

Size: Small/Medium

Worn: A handful of times

Price Paid: $43
