Brand New Coach Madison Leather handbag - Please make an offer.

I have a brand new coach madison handbag convertible satchel/shoulder bag for sale.

It has never been used. I bought it as a gift for my mom and she thinks it is too large for her. Gorgeous brown bad with silver hardware.

Can be used as a satchel or a shoulder bag.

It has a very beautiful silver hardware and the shoulder strap can be tucked under the bag.
If teh straps are undone (from under the bag ), the bag is a rectangular shape and can be worn over the shoulder.
I have tried to take pictures of it as best as I can. If you need more, let me know.
Closed by a secure zipper, not those magnetic clasps !

Lined inside with beautiful canvas and has an inner zippered pouch. Also has sections for organized storage for cellphone etc.

I bought it for 425 + tax at a coach outlet store.
Retails for 498 + tax.

Yours for 300 $.

Hunter rain boots, size 7

Hi! These are a beautiful pair of Hunter rainboots, size 7, bright magenta-colored. I love them, but I've found I just don't wear rainboots that often. I've worn them about 5 or 6 times up to school and back, but...someone else should rock the awesome bright color more often than I do. They're a little big on me (I'm a small-end 7), but with fat socks they fit fine.

paid: not sure, they were bought for me (a well-meaning aunt).

asking: $60 plus shipping.

listing through Feb 8th. Let me know if you have any questions, and leave your email in the comments! Thanks!

Saint James Galathee shirt, Size 40/M

This is a 100% cotton boat neck, 3/4 sleeve shirt by Saint James, made in France. The color is ecru/metal. This make is sized for women, is more fitted than the Minquier's, and sizing is TTS (true to size).

Here is a link to a page that shows sizing/measurements (click on the picture with text, below)

I bought this in 2 sizes, hence the listing. The color looks great with jeans, khaki pants, and black pants.

Never used, tags still attached. Asking $55, US shipping included. Listing ends February 6, 2011.

LAST CALL: Eurythmic Black Silk Cape dress (Sold)

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 for around $250 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.

Now sold. Thanks everyone!

LAST CALL: Grey Silk tunic dress by Grey Ant (sold)

This is a Grey Ant tunic dress purchased on Shopbop.com. 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 (open size).

SOLD, thanks everyone.

LAST CALL: Topshop Grey paperbag-style trousers

Last call! I'm selling a pair of awesome high waisted wide leg trousers from Topshop, paperbag style with included belt to cinch waist. Color is a dark grey with grey/brown pinstripes, made of 66% Polyester, 32% Viscose, 2% Elastane. Gradient on trousers in photos is just due to bad lighting.

Size is Euro 40/US 10.
I paid about $100 USD in London, and never wore these.
Now only $20 plus shipping. Leave your name and email in the comments if you're interested!

{SOLD} HOPE stockholm 'trace' ankle booties - 37

i love love love HOPE stockholm's well-edited collection, but their shoes are my favorite. these 'trace' booties are from the 2010 collection, now sold out everywhere. i fell in love with these on sale last summer, but in the interest of less is more, i'm offering this pair here as the heel is a smidge high for me to wear all the time. they give a great Emmanuelle Alt-esque lift to any outfit for day or night! as with all HOPE shoes, the craftsmanship and quality is superb.

*Repost/Reduction*! She-Bible Cocoon Tunic One Size

Item: She-Bible cocoon tunic
Color/material: Rusty red with the softest, most luxurious sweatshirt material ever
Size: One size- it's an oversize tunic that can fit many different sizes & shapes.
Condition: never worn
Retail: can't remember
Asking: $25, which includes USPS priority shipping to anywhere in the USA.
Listing ends: Sunday, Feb 6th
I'm not sure what I was thinking when I bought this because I have another She-Bible sweatshirt of the same color that I wear ALL the time. Since I practically live in the other one I think I thought that I'd live in this one too (it's very inviting to live in!), but I'm not much of a leggings wearer and I didn't like the way it fit over my jeans (although I do think that you can pull it off no problem). The cowl is the best, it keeps you warm and cozy and there's pockets too which for me is always a huge plus. Get this to live in day in and day out.

{REDUCED!} Frye Veronica Slouch Boots-Brown Size 6

Time for boots! These boots are gorgeous, and they're barely broken in. I was looking forward to having a well worn pair of boots, but it turns out that I'm really not as much of a boot person that I thought I'd ever be...so rather than having them sit around I thought I'd pass them on to the next person who'd appreciate them and wear the heck into them! When I bought them I had them gently stretched by my local cobbler. He did such a great job- there are no marks or any indication that they've been stretched but helped make it roomier in the calf area for me.

Color: brown
Material: leather (more details below)
Size: 6B, fits like a size 6 (but will quickly get snug with thick socks...not recommended)
Condition: Worn several times, but in great condition. There's practically no heel wear. In the second photo you can see some wear, but I think this adds to the breaking in of boots!

Details about these boots via Piperlime:
  • Frye Veronica Slouch Boot
  • Tall boot
  • Adjustable buckles at shaft and ankle
  • Padded footbed
  • 1 1/4" stacked heel
  • Leather lining
  • Rubber outsole
  • 13 1/2" shaft, 15" circumference
  • Upper: 100% leather
Paid: Don't remember, currently sold on Piperlime for $328
Asking: $195 plus shipping

PORTS 1961 Strapless dress (sz 2)

I wore this dress once to a wedding. It has a draped bodice, is lined in silk, and extremely flattering even for my flat-chested frame (and presumably even more so for someone with cleavage). Made of wool 61/silk 39, the dress has a nice heft (not flimsy) and the fabric has a subtle sheen - perfect for a cocktail/evening event.

Bust: Approx. 16.5" across (fitted)
Waist: Approx. 13.5" across
Length: 34"

Retail price $895, purchased on sale for about $350, asking $180 (includes shipping)
