NIB Dieppa Restrepo Cali Blue Metallic Patent oxfords, size 8.5 TTS

Posting for Kara

I just bought these now sold out Dieppa Restrepo oxfords from Totokaelo and they are AMAZING! If I was not trying to save for a trip they would still be mine! They are still in their original shoebox and include all of the leather care info from Totokaelo.

No comparison to how they look in person - Depending on the light they can go from a shimmery dark navy to a brighter blue. They fit true to size.

I apologize for the crappy iPhone picture, please do not hesitate to ask for better pictures (if needed).

Paid: I am asking what I paid for them ($245 plus $15 for shipping). Shipping includes signature delivery/insurance, if wanted.

Listing ends a week from today.

Rick Owens Drkshdw Sleeveless Druid Hoodie size Medium

Posting for Carmen

I purchased this amazing hoodie from Stephanie at Grey the Blog. It is from the Rick Owens Darkshadow Collection and features the signature oversize druid hood and self ties on either shoulder. The cut and draping of it is unbelievable and the fleece is really thick, warm and soft. It's about as warm as some of my cashmere sweaters. This is the sleeveless version, so it can be worn over a sweater or layered over and under leather jackets or under a wool coat. If you are an XS or S you can even wear it over a wool coat and turn it into a cocoon coat with a druid hood! I am letting go of it because I recently acquired the long-sleeved version, which is more practical in the California weather I live in. It rarely gets cold enough to layer here and I just can't justify keeping both. The hoodie is a size medium, but because of how well cut it is, it will fit anyone from a size XS-M in my opinion. I am an XS and it was just a little extra drapey on me.

The first three pictures are from Grey the Blog and the last one is from Shop Worthwhile Boutique.

Condition: Excellent, purchased barely used, did not use it myself
Measurements: 16" from shoulder to shoulder, length is 25" but it tapers down more in the front depending on how you tie it
Material: 100% cotton
Color: Dust
Asking: $275 + $10 shipping US only, more for elsewhere (please indicate in comments if you are outside the US). Also open to reasonable offers.
Listing ends: one week from today

Please email puppynapper1980(at)gmail.com with any questions and leave name and email in comments if interested.

[SOLD] Acne Pistol Short Boot, size 39/9

Pistol Short - leather ankle boot with a low, chunky stacked wood heel, round toe and stitched paneling. Hidden signature zipper at outer side with long fringy leather string puller. Helpful attached leather pull-on-tab at center back shaft. Leather insole and heel. Dust bag included.

Pistol short is the short version of the ever so classic acne boot Pistol.

100% Leather
Heel height 7.5 cm (3")
Shaft Height 12 cm (5")

Made in Italy

For more photos please click here and here.

These are really well made, fit comfortably, and are TTS.

Only used to try on at home. Bought on a whim. They are just too similar to another pair of boots, and although the ACNE's are more comfy, I've decided it's too much to have 2 boots with similar styles and heel heights.

Asking $365, shipped in the Continental US. I am willing to ship abroad, but will need to add postage and insurance.

Listing ends a week from today.

Rachel Comey Baxter Rain Boots

Posting for Heather

Rachel Comey Baxter Rain Boots

Size: 6.5 (but fits more like a small 6 to me)

These rain boots are sold out in size 6.5 everywhere. I was obsessed with them and so purchased the 6.5 and the 7 but decided to keep the 7s and missed the return window on the smaller size. A note about the size: I normally wear a size 6 and found these to run a touch small for rain boots, where I was hoping to accommodate a fleece liner for winter. I have worn my size 7s in rainstorms and in the freak October snowstorm in New York and my feet were perfectly warm and dry. The padded insole makes them much more comfortable than your average rain boot. Plus they have some room width-wise to add thick socks for winter. I am so happy with mine, and hope you will love them too.

Description (from Gargyle): Black, tan, and hunter green Palladium styled lace-up boots. Waterproof with treading on soles and adjustable buckle at the ankle will save you from puddles and slipping this rainy season. Cuter than your average rain boots, they look good with a variety of outfits.

Apologies for my lousy cameraphone pictures. More pics available here: http://totokaelo.com/store/products/rachel-comey/fw11/baxter-boot/cognac-multi and here: http://www.gargyle.com/rachel-comey-baxter-boot-5202.html#description

Measurements: Heel height, 1 1/4". Shaft, 5 1/2". Heel to toe outersole: 9 1/2"

Material: Rubber, leather.

Condition: Brand new. Never been worn outside the house, only tried on inside with thick socks. Comes with original dust bag and box.

Paid: $196 from Gargyle

Asking: $180 plus shipping

Auction ends in one week.

Please leave your email address in the comments to be included in the random drawing. You will have 2 days to pay or make arrangements.

Steven Alan Sullivan Dress, Size P

*posted on behalf of Katie*

I bought this from a fellow LoGEr a few weeks ago. It just doesn't work on me! I can't seem to get steven alan sizing down, some of their stuff runs so big. I thought for sure this Petite size would work, and it's a bit too tight on my frame. It is such an awesome dress, I'm bummed it didn't work out. So I'm reposting it, hoping it will work better for one of you!

Here is what was said from the original post:

This is a Steven Alan Sullivan Dress that I got a while back, despite the face that I am decidedly not an extra-small. Since it's always been rather tight on me through the bust (ahem, I can barely button it), I've worn it out of the house exactly once.

It's an adorable blue and white striped organic cotton with subtle white dots & awesome wooden buttons down the front. It has cropped sleeves, two hidden side pockets, and button closures at the cuffs. It has a lightly curved hem and darts in back upper part of dress to shape the bust. It's totally classic Steven Alan, perfect for layering, and would be so cute with thick, knit tights!

(Apologies for the crummy photos!)

Measurements: (laying flat)

Bust: 16"
Empire Waist: 15"
Length: 33"

Paid: $65 shipped

Asking: $65 shipped. I have only tried it on. (Paypal Only/Ships UPS)

Auction ends Dec. 6th.

If you have any questions, please email me at RedwoodlRedwood@gmail.com. Thanks!

Good Luck!

J Brand High Rise Maria Starless, Size 25

J.W. Hulme Linwood Bucket Bag in Sage

Posting for Jennifer

This is a beautiful bag by J.W. Hulme. It is very gently used, and is under lifetime warranty. It has an adjustable strap so that it can be worn over one shoulder or cross body. It is a very sturdy bag and has a zip closure, inside zippered pocket, open inner pocket, outer zip pocket on the back and an outer pocket in the front that can be fastened shut with the strap on the front of the bag. There are no structural problems with the bag, but there is a darker area on the back of the bag where the bag rubbed against my dark jeans. The size and design make it really versatile...it works well as an every day bag or as a bag for school. It is a great size (not too big and not too small), but I am a creature of habit and always end up using the same bag over and over so this one never gets any use.

Height approx 12.5"
Width approx 13"

Paid $550
Asking $165 + $12 shipping, more for international

NEW//reduced Bodkin Curie Blouse in Blush

*first photo courtesy of Maryam Nassir Zadeh

I purchased this beautiful Bodkin blouse at Dose Market in Chicago a couple of months ago only to find that it doesn't fit me well in the bust. New with tags. It's a beautiful sheer piece made of 100% wool that happens to be light and airy. It's a bummer to list this blouse, but I can't keep something that doesn't fit me right! It has a really wonderful neckline that is almost feathery with its unfinished details. Would work nicely for a dinner out, or even to work. Versatile color. See more pictures here.

Size M
Bust: 37"
Shoulder: 15"
Waist: 34"
Sleeve: 22"
Length: 27.5

Paid $232 at Dose Market (20% discount). Retails for $290-$300.
Asking $150 (previously $200) with US shipping included. Paypal only.

RELIST: philip Lim twist front skirt size 0

I bought this skirt from the Philip Lim boutique in Soho a year and a half ago. It was the last one and I had to have it, but the reality is that it is too small for me (I'm usually a 2 or 4 in his clothes). It is the most amazing fabric, and color (light greige), and really the fabric is gorgeous—it is a heavy, yet super soft cotton/linen/tencel blend. It has a lovely twisted knot design on at the front, side slit pockets, back zipper, and hits above the knee. Pictures can hardly show how lovely this skirt is. If it fit me I would never sell it : (

Color: greige/putty
Material: cotton/linen/tencel blend
Size: zero (best for a size 0/2); approx. 18" long, 14" across waist
Condition: Worn once, in excellent, like new condition.

Paid: $375
Asking: $100 (was $175) + shipping

RELIST: Marc Jacobs coin purse/keychain

It's large enough to hold cards, cash, a smaller phone, etc.

RELIST: Rogan denim blazer XS

Bought a couple years ago at a Rogan sample sale. I loved the "americana" vintage style of the blazer when I bought it, but have two other denim jackets that I wear all the time, so I never wear this one. The pictures show the details better than I can describe, but what I like most about this jacket is that it is esigned to be worn with the collar up or down (the lines of the collar fit perfectly turned up), has roomy pockets, it's cut slightly longer than other jackets I have so covers the butt/hips, and has long, yet slimly tailored, sleeves.

Color: dark denim with ticking stripe pattern
Material: 100% cotton
Size: XS (true to size), measures approx. 24 1/2" long (measured down the back), and 15" across bust, 16" across at pockets, and 15" across from shoulder line to shoulder line. Let me know if you want any more measurements!
Condition: Never worn, new without tags

Paid: $160 marked down 50% at a sample sale
Asking: $50 ( was $85) + shipping
Listing ends: December 3

RELIST: coclico cashmere flame scarf

I bought this gorgeous scarf at the Coclico boutique in Nolita. It is super soft and light-weight–good for layering over dresses/sweaters. It has a lovely batik-like flame print that is dark burgundy with a cream background. I have a huge scarf collection and need to give some up!

Color: dark burgundy pattern over cream
Material: cashmere
Size: approx. 74" long x 28" wide
Condition: Worn a few times and in excellent, like new condition.

Paid: approx. $120
Asking: $40 (was $55)+ shipping
