Marc Jacobs Boots Size 38.5/ US 8.5 Black

Gorgeous Marc Jacobs Boots. Buttery Soft Black Leather. Made in Italy. These are from the Marc Jacobs line not Marc by Marc Jacobs. Purchased at Marc Jacobs Boutique in Los Angeles. I've only worn these a handful of times but due to the nature of the leather, they scuff really easy. Top of shoe is flawless except for scuff on the tip of one boot. Most of the scuffing is on the heel but it's not really visable when you wear them, only when you look closely. I tried to show this in the photos as best I could.

Retailed for 450+
Selling for 60$ includes shipping

Auction ends Oct 7

posted on behalf of Katie

The content is Merino wool, rayon, rabbit hair, and cashmere. I paid maybe $60 or $70.00 for this, and am asking $10.00 shipped in the US-- I hope someone will get good wear out of this! Please email katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting. Thanks!

Bongut Artists' Co-op T-shirt, small

posted on behalf of Katie

T-shirt by Bongut, an artists' co-op in Berlin, size small (also appropriate for a size XS). This is hand silk-screened. I just bought it while in Berlin this past August, but I never seem to reach for t-shirts-- it was one of those purchases which seem so perfect when you're traveling, but doesn't actually work at home! I wore it once while in Berlin and laundered it once accordingly. I paid 35 Euro. I'm asking $15.00 shipped in the US. Please email katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting. Thanks!

Anthropologie Velvet-brand Red & White Striped Shirt, medium

posted on behalf of Katie

Red and white striped shirt, size medium, purchased from Anthropologie. The brand is Velvet. Though it's a size medium, I wear a size small and I chose this size for the length. It's 100% cotton, the sleeves are adjustable, and the buttons on the placket are functional. Though the style is very similar to the grey Anthro shirt I posted earlier, the fit on this is less tunic-y and hugs the body in a really nice way! I bought this the winter before last for around $70- $75.00. I wore it a handful of times, but haven't in the last year. It's in perfect condition. I'm asking $18.00 shipped in the US. Please email katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting. Thanks!

Mara Hoffman Tea Length Skirt

Posted on behalf of Val.  Please email her at holesome_val at msn with any questions!

This is a new, unworn with tags Mara Hoffman tea length skirt.  It is a size 4. I didn't realize that the sizing runs a little small for this brand, so it is too tight on me.  I'm usually a size 4.  I've tried to lose weight, but to no success.  It is a beautiful 100% silk skirt with a side zip.  I would say it's supposed to be worn a little mid to high-waisted.

I paid retail: $324 plus tax and shipping and am asking for only $210 shipping included. Thanks.

Listing ends on Thursday October 6, 2011.

Oak NYC long-sleeved french terry wrap, size 1, light grey[SOLD}

Bought this from Oak last winter and wore the heck out of it. It's still got lots of life left in it though,  and I have too many grey layering pieces now and need to edit my closet.

Freshly washed and in good condition, no tears or stains. Size 1 is recommended "for most women" by the Oak website, it's a generous fit. Nice and cozy heavier body and lighter, extra-long ribbed sleeves; asymmetrical unfinished hem, drapey front collar. Shorter in the back and long in the front. Can also be worn upside down. Made in the U.S. of 100% cotton.

Paid $112 at Oak, asking $25 including shipping within the U.S. (outside the U.S. let me know).

First 3 pics are from Oak (note the different color), so you can see what it looks like on (looks like nothing on the hanger!).

Listing ends in one week, on Oct. 5.

Necklace from India

posted on behalf of Katie

This is a gypsy-style necklace I bought in India a couple of years ago in a chic Bombay boutique. I'm only selling it because my skin is ridiculously sensitive and prevents me from wearing this for more than a few minutes. It's adjustable; in the photograph I am wearing it at its loosest setting. I paid around $50.00 US for it. I'm asking $10.00 shipped in the US, because I totally love it and I want it to find a home with someone who'll wear it-- I never have! Please contact katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting date. Thanks!

Kind Like Love Tunic, medium

posted on behalf of Katie

Sheath tunic top from the brand Kind Like Love, purchased at the Nashville boutique Posh last winter for $75.00, size medium. I'm a size small/2, but I liked the way it kind of floated out around me with this sizing. It's extremely thin and semi-transparent, and will definitely require an undershirt. It has a little keyhole closure at the back of the neck (not pictured). The warp threads have a very subtle iridescence to them which my photographs did not pick up on. The pattern reminded me of Middle Eastern repeating patterns. It's 100% polyester and again, very sheer-- the third image with my hand beneath the fabric is to demonstrate its see-through quality. I'm asking $15.00 shipped in the US (Canada will be + $3.00). Please contact katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting date. Thanks!

Makeup Forever Foundation

posted on behalf of Katie

Apologies for the non-traditional posting! This is Makeup Forever foundation from Sephora in shade 127 ("Dark sand-- for medium skin with yellow undertones"). I only ever use this brand of foundation since having tried it. I get compliments on my skin all the time, which is pretty crazy since my skin is highly imperfect in my opinion! This is great for those of us of Asian descent, since it's designed with yellow undertones, and it's also great for those of us whose skin tends to be a bit oily or combination-- though it's not drying, it will not get streaky or smeary or break you out. It also doesn't make you look "make-up-y" at all. I can't say enough awesome things about this product, honestly.
My boyfriend ordered this for me as a gift when he saw I was running out a couple months ago, but alas, he ordered a shade darker than what I use. I used it twice before realizing it was slightly off! It's basically full. This has about six months worth of use in it.
This retails for $40.00 plus s/h exclusively from Sephora. Here's the link so you can check the shade and see if it works for you: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml%3B$sessionid$SOGQPNS3AV3XACV0KQNQIGQ;jsessionid=SOGQPNS3AV3XACV0KQNQIGQ?id=P217905&categoryId=B70
I'm asking $15.00 shipped in the US (Canada will be + $3.00), a great price at which to try this product. Please contact katiekentuckychambers@gmail.com with any questions. Listing ends a week from posting date. Thanks!

Flower print cropped pants

**posted on behalf of Hannah**

Flower print cropped pants
Size 4, true to size.
Bought from Anthropologie for $148 last year and while they are so so so cute and soft and silky, they never get worn. Worn once for a couple hours. They are a little higher-waisted, straight leg, ankle-length. There isn't a tag for fabric but it is most likely a poly blend. They were featured in Vogue at some point.

Asking $50, shipping included.
