Condition: In good used condition

Chie Mihara platform heels with starry silver patterned leather and 4 inch wood heel. Platform is about 3/4 inch. Comes with original box, dust bag, and extra heel taps. Worn several times, but plenty of life left in them. See pictures for signs of wear in detail. Like most Chie Mihara shoes, they are cute and comfortable. Goes equally well with a white dress in the summer as it does with black tights in the fall. I love these shoes, but don't wear them enough to justify keeping them.

Rachel Comey Darby Clogs, Size 7

Posting for Ro
Item: Rachel Comey Darby Clogs

Color/material: Forest green, suede/wool with wood platform sole and heel with rubber plates

Size: 7 (Many reviews say this shoe runs true to size, but I find that the arch support does not align with my foot, and it fits more like a 6.5 because of that)

Condition: Brand new

Retail: $358

Asking: $175, including shipping (PayPal only)

Listing ends: Wednesday, September 7

These are brand new, never worn, forest green suede and wool clogs with front lace detail from Rachel Comey. I have only tried these on for a couple of minutes on the carpet, when I realized that they just weren’t working on my feet. Terribly disappointed, as I was planning
on living in these for fall, but I hope they go to someone who will love them just as much and can actually wear them. Aside from my own personal fit issues, they are super cute, comfortable, and walkable.

I have also sprayed on UGG Stain and Water Repellent, which was recommended for suede on Purse Forum, so it’s all ready to go for cooler weather! Comes with Rachel Comey canvas tote bag. Email Ro at rabaliton at gmail dot com with any questions.

Jem Filippi Highway Bag *SOLD*

I bought this bag directly from the Highway store in NYC several years ago. I carried it for a time and then it ended up in the back of my closet as I discovered I seem to prefer leather bags. A version of this is sold at the MoMA store. Here's their description:
For her line of bags, New York fashion and fabric designer Jem Filippi was inspired by street fashion, fine art, and industrial design. Ideal for everyday use, the contemporary medium-sized Highway Bag has multiple zipper pockets for organizing contents. The strap can be extended to fit comfortably over the shoulder or across the body.
My bag is made of high quality black Japanese nylon with a pretty aqua nylon interior. Lots of pouches and pockets. The main compartment closes with a snap. The zipper pulls have green leather tags.

The bag is in excellent condition and clean, inside and out-- there is one tiny spot in the interior of the bag, which didn't show up in photos. Any wear is minor.

Dimensions: 10.5" high x 14" w (at the widest point) x 3" d (can expand to 5)

Paid: $125; asking $35 plus $5 shipping in the U.S.

Another pair of jeans that are sadly a size too small for me now.  These have an interesting slide button closure at the top that I've only ever seen on AG jeans.  Nice dark wash denim that's a little darker than these photos show.  I'm moving out of the country in about 1.5 weeks and need to purge purge purge my closet before I do!

Another brightly colored item that I have barely worn in recent years.  I think I bought this about 7 years ago?  Very pretty light mint green color with a subtle diamond knit pattern, cream piping, and penguin logo at the front.  Excellent fit, though it runs a little small and would best suite an XS-S I think.  I'm moving out of the country in 2 weeks and need to purge purge purge my closet before I do!

Super cute vintage sweater.  White with colorful stitched on music notes/score on the front and back, plus notes on the sleeve.  Great fit (not weird and lumpy like vintage sweaters sometimes tend to be) and fairly lightweight.  Best fit for XS-S.  I'm moving out of the country in 2 weeks and need to purge purge purge my closet before I do!

This was an "investment" purchase that I made a while ago, but I still have yet to wear this sweater.  I know it's still August, but this will be great once fall weather hits.  It's a beautiful shade of bright blue, but I just have been finding it difficult to break out of neutrals lately.  The hem and sleeves are rolled (no binding).  Great fit, although I think it runs kind of small, and would best suit a size small for the perfect slightly relaxed look.  I think it can fit an XS too if you want more of that oversized boyfriend sweater look (I normally wear an XS-S).  I'm moving out of the country in 2 weeks and need to purge purge purge my closet before I do!

Acne Use Top 38




*posted on behalf of Erica*

I stalked this Acne top since 2008 (http://royalquietdeluxe.blogspot.com/2008/07/needle-use.html) after seeing it on the Sartorialist. Size 38. Dark charcoal. The belt goes in holes on the side so it's visible only in the front or in the back (just like to Acne Guide dress http://www.greytheblog.com/2009/07/hot-hot-heat.html). Also super cute tucked in or out without the belt. Worn only a few times and in perfect condition.

I don't remember what I paid (around $120?), purchased on ebay NWOT in 2010.

Price: $65 + $7 shipping
Size: 38
Reason for selling: selling a few things to buy a few other things
