Vintage Etienne Aigner Leather Sandals 7

Posting for Sara

I love these sandals, but have come to accept the fact that they do not fit and never will, ha! They are all leather, and in great vintage condition. I love the detailing on the buckle! Slightly darker IRL (true EA oxblood color)

Measurements: Marked as size 7.5, but EA tends to run a bit smaller (I have found)... these would comfortably fit a size 7, normal width.

Paid: Too much for shoes I knew would not fit :(
Asking: $30 OBO, shipping included

Listing ends a week from today.

Faryl Robin Poppet Platform

**Posted on behalf of Jane**

Size 7
New in Box, Retailed for $249.95
"Braided, multi-colored straps add a lively touch to this bold platform sandal from Farylrobin. Crafted with rich, supple leather, the Poppet features an elasticized buckle closure at the side and softly lined and padded foot bed. The matching heel and platform lend flattering yet stable height, perfect for pairing with your favorite leg-baring ensembles."
Heel measures approx. 3 3/4"
Platform measures approx 1/2"

I bought these shoes because they are beautiful and I thought that I would be wearing them all the time. The truth is that I just have way too many shoes and I don't get around to wearing them all which is a shame. I just moved so it is time for me to clean out the closet. These shoes are new and have only been tried on in the house. They have a few marks on the bottom from trying on and also a red dot I colored on the bottom of the sole but you cannot see them while on and do not affect the shoes in any way. I paid $249.95 for these. I am asking $80 + shipping (if you would like the shoe box shipping will be a little more).
Listing ends August 4th. Email Jane at janeygirl2010@gmail.com with any questions or if you would like actual pictures of the shoes.

  • Leather upper.
  • Pointed toe.
  • Adjustable strap with buckle closure.

  • These shoes are so cool, The color on them is something I have never seen before and that's what drew me to them. Menswear is huge right now so these shoes will be a hit. They are new but I have tried them on around the house so these is a tiny bit of wear/scuffing on the bottom of the shoes but nothing that can be seen or affects the shoe in any way. I paid $70 for these. I am asking $30 + shipping.

    [SOLD] Monki "Carlie" Bandage Dress

    Item: Monki "Carlie" Dress
    Color/material: melange grey, 65% cotton/29% polyester/6% elastane
    Size: medium, fits like a small
    Condition: new with tags
    Retail: 200 DKK (roughly $40 USD)
    Asking: $20, which includes shipping to anywhere in the USA 
    Listing ends: Thursday, August 3rd
    I bought this dress when I was abroad in Copenhagen almost two years ago.  Monki is a Swedish brand that I absolutely loved while there, and I'm always sad that they don't have an online store.  Great basics with Scandinavian edge: http://www.monki.com/products/sets/.  
    This dress is a bandage dress similar to the one American Apparel sells except that the length is a little bit longer and the fabric is thicker (read: more forgiving and flattering).  Looks amazing on, but I have to downsize downsize downsize my closet!

    [SOLD] Calypso St. Barth sailor shirt

    Item: Calypso St. Barth sailor shirt
    Color/material: "rusty" - not as bright/true red as in these photos, cotton
    Size: small, fits true to size
    Condition: new with tags
    Retail: $79, bought for $19 on sale + shipping
    Asking: $12, which includes shipping to anywhere in the USA 
    Listing ends: Thursday, August 3rd
    Exact same shirt as the one I listed several months ago, except in a different color...I just don't think it's for me!  It does have a perfect square neckline sailor-esque shirt with buttons at the collar and sleeves, but I just don't think I will end up wearing it.  A nice basic for anyone who is looking for one though!  Although it fits true to size, it might fit best on an XS for a looser fit.

    The Podolls Scoop Back Dress (via Calypso St. Barth)

    Item: The Podolls scoop back dress
    Color/material: army/mossy green, 85% modal/15% linen
    Size: small, fits like an xs-s
    Condition: new with tags
    Retail: $95, bought on sale for $49 
    Asking: $20, which includes shipping to anywhere in the USA 
    Listing ends: Thursday, August 3rd
    I bought this dress a while ago but have since decided that it's just not my thing.  Super soft and slinky, with a deep scoop back, drop shoulders, and 3/4 length sleeves with little button closures.  Hits above the knee for me, and I am 5'3-5'4.  The brand is "The Podolls", which is an eco-friendly line that they carry at Calypso and other stores.  The label says "carefully handcrafted for you in the usa".  Similar to T Alexander Wang jersey dresses, except made in the USA :)

    bensimon 'nils' sneakers, size 9-9 1/2

    On offer: canvas Bensimon sneakers, size 40 (suitable for someone who wears a size 9 or 9 1/2, I'd say), model 'Nils' in taupe.
    I had tried these sneakers on at the Bensimon store in Antwerp, but they didn't have the colour I wanted there, so I ordered them online. At the store, size 40 seemed to be the right size, but when these shoes came in the mail, they were too small! Then I was too late with sending them back, and I thought I'd offer them to one of you.
    I love this model, it's sort of between a low-top and a high-top sneaker.
    They have never been worn, I've only tried them on for size. They will come in their original bag.

    I paid 36 euros for them, the equivalent of a little over $50.
    Asking $40 + $25 for shipping (shipping from the netherlands. sorry the shipping is such a lot! it's due to their weight. not asking more than the actual postage costs are.)
    If you are interested or have any questions, please leave your e-mail address in the comments. Listing ends on Friday the 5th of August.

    [REDUCED, RELIST] J Brand Houlihan Skinny Stretch Cargos, Vintage Olive Size 28

    THE most amazing skinny fit cargos on the planet. Not surprising why so many celebs have been wearing them. The fabric is a soft broken in cotton, with a hint of stretch. It's amazing how versatile these are. Even through the summer, they're great with a loose fitting tank (add fun fedora for pizzazz!). In the fall, they'd be great with ankle booties and a chunky cardigan.

    These have been worn once or twice. Please excuse the dark pictures-- the first picture, and the last 2 probably represent the color the best.

    Paid: $230
    Asking: $100 shipped $85 shipped ($5 extra if international)

    Brand: MaxStudio
    Size: Medium
    Details: Seafoam green top, fancy ruched empire waist detailing, decorative seams with raw edges
    Paid: $40
    Asking: $20 (including shipping)
    History: I love this top! It's one of the only empire waist shirts I can wear without looking pregnant! But...I have wide shoulders and the sleeves seemed to emphasize that...none of my friends agreed with me, but STILL. It's a complex.

    You'll love this top! It's so comfortable and it can be dressed up or down. Enjoy!

    These are soooo cute! Please give them a worthy home!
