Kodiak "Muskoka" Brown Winter Boot, 7.5




Kodiak is a Canadian boot company. The "Muskoka" is one of their least rugged looking boots for women. This is a great alternative for someone who is looking for something that isn't heavy or clunky. Here is a link to give you a better idea of what the boot looks like:http://www.pegasusshoes.com/Muskoka_P10096C815.cfm
This particular boot is suppose to look worn. The light makes it look more so than it actually is.

Condition: Excellent Used Condition, sole shows no signs of wear.
Material: Waterproofed leather. Made with microfiber insulation. Rubber sole so you don't slip.
Size: 7.5, fits slightly larger. I can still fit heavy socks in.
Bought for 200 dollars last winter.
Asking: 125 + shipping

Steven Alan Heddy Shirt, size medium






This listing is for a previously worn Steven Alan Heddy shirt. I've worn this shirt probably 2-4 times and, although I love it, I've come to terms with the fact that it is not the best color for me. I've washed it in cold water and hung it dry. Sorry the shirt is a bit wrinkled, I'll make to sure to iron it before I mail it out. Here is some info:

brand: Steven Alan
style: organic Heddy shirt
size: medium
color: beige with light brown flowers
tag reads: 100% cotton. machine wash cool water. made in the usa.
paid: $90 on sale at Domahoka
asking: $50 (includes US shipping)

Please leave a comment with your paypal address if you are interested. Thanks!

Fluevog Malibran pumps in Olive Green, size 7 (fits 7.5)



Charming Fluevog Operetta Malibran heels purchased new and worn only once! They are very comfortable, but unfortunately I don't wear pumps often enough to justify keeping these. In almost perfect condition.

I'm a size 7.5 and these fit me, so be aware that they run a half size large (could probably be worn by a 7 with an insole). They are a neutral olive green shade with brown decorative stitching. The heel is 2 1/4", just enough for some lift but low enough for everyday wear. Soft leather upper and leather-wrapped heel with a rubber sole. I will send with the dust bag and box, and I'll include a jar of Tarrago Shoe Cream polish in Olive (it's a perfect match).

Paid $239 for these, asking $185, including shipping in the U.S. (Outside of U.S., contact me and we can work something out.)

Listing ends January 5. Thanks!

Mociun tie-front dress, size medium





This listing is for a brand new, never worn, mociun tie-front dress. I purchased this dress about a year ago while pregnant in hopes that it would work well post maternity and while nursing.

brand: mociun
size: medium
color: a reddish orange and blue/gray graphic pattern on top with a mustard skirt
tag reads: 100% organic cotton (the top) and 100% linen (skirt). cold wash. lay flat to dry. hot iron. made in the usa
paid: $200 (on sale)
asking: $150 (includes US shipping)
listing ends: January 5th

CHLOE 'Havanna' Perfortated Leather Flats w/ box SZ IT 37 US 7







Item: CHLOE 'Havanna' Perfortated Leather Flats with all original box/sleeper/documents
Size IT 37 -- I am a true US 7 and these fit perfectly.

I've worn these flats quite a bit when traveling, but I haven't worn them in the last year...so it's time to pass them on. I paid $400 for these flats at Barneys a few years ago, and they have held up commendably. In fact, I am shocked by just how well they've held up when so many of my flats die soon after a year of wear.

There are no marks on the leather -- even on the underside -- and on the fronts, where flats really get roughed up, there is little to speak of but a miniscule mark here or there that is hardly worth remarking on; in fact, I had to really look in order to find them.

There are two small scuffs on either heel, but since the leather is dyed all the way through, the scratches revel black underneath making them hard to tease out.

DETAILS:

Perforated Leather Uppers
Grosgrain ribbons on Toe
Wood Outsoles
Insoles measure precisely 9 3/8, as they should for a shoe that translates to a US 7

below: note that the metal tip for the grosgrain ribbon on one end of the right shoe has come off. I think I may have uncovered this bit in the living room (will update this listing if I did.)
If I didn't locate it after all, it should be an easy fix by a cobbler.

Condition: reasonably good.
The leather of these shoes has held up better than almost another other pair of shoes I own. They are quality. I never added vibram to the soles, but the left heel has been partially "erased" as a result. Still, your cobbler should be able to add a heel so that the "erasure" won't be noticed (I just had mine do something similar to a much older pair of shoes...and you can't tell that they're old!) See the "erased" left heel below.
Below: no comment is required about the fact that I've kept the box, sleeper *and* original documents from a time when Chloe flats cost $400 retail. We'll just leave it at that.
