Laurence Pasquier V Neck Frill Baby Doll Maxi



**on behalf of samantha**

Item description:
Gorgeous maxi dress by Australian based French designer Laurence Pasquier.
Made of lightweight silk in a unique lavender tone.

Reason for sale:
I bought this for my sister as a gift for her prom but it arrived too late so she has no use for this dress now.
I think it will be great for a garden wedding dress or for those who like maxi dresses of this style.

Size: Australian size 4.
My sister who's modelling it in the picture is an US 2-4 and it fits her great. Due to nature of design it will fit US6 and possible 8 as well.

Rag & Bone The Knit Blazer Size Small



posted on behalf of Jennifer

This is a great blazer I purchased from Rag & Bone last fall. It has only been tried on in the house, but never worn outside. I am selling because I'm getting ready for a move, and also this blazer is just a little too snug in the shoulders for me. It is warm, but not bulky and will be great on its own in the fall and awesome for layering under heavier coats in the winter.

Care and composition:
Shell 100% wool, Combo:100% cotton
Machine wash cold

Measurements when flat:
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 16.5"
Armpit to armpit: 17.25"
Length from underneath center of collar to hem: 23"

Purchased for $275
Asking $75 + $10 shipping, more for international

BLANCA MONROS GOMEZ SEED RING, 14K YELLOW GOLD WITH WHITE DIAMOND, SZ 6






posted on behalf of Carmen

This is a sweet little ring from jewelry designer Blanca Monros Gomez, who works with recycled gold and ethically sourced diamonds. I purchased this as a simple everyday ring in place of my wedding band, but I work with my hands too much to wear any kind of jewelry during the day. The band is hammered so it is extremely strong and comfortable, and the diamond is secure in its bezel setting. You will hardly notice you have it on. It is a size 6 but is sizeable. The photos are from Catbird boutique. It has only been worn once or twice and will be polished and cleaned and sent in its original box.

Condition: like new, pristine
Paid: $191 including shipping from Catbird Boutique
Asking: $100 plus approx. $7 US shipping (priority mail with insurance and signature confirmation), more for international
listing ends: one week from today

Little Squid Arm Ring, 14K Gold, Size 6.5



**on behalf of Carmen**

The most adorable thin gold band in the shape of a little squid tentacle, purchased from Etsy seller Chymiera.  Still currently being sold: http://www.etsy.com/listing/65809298/little-squid-arm-solid-14k-gold-handcast.  I am selling it because I work too much with my hands to wear any kind of jewelry during the day.

"The band is approx 1mm thick. I do not have a mold for these, so in essence, yours will be 'yours'. No two will be identical! 1 week is required for me to cast these- these are not soldered rings. They are 100% solid 14K yellow gold and I cast them using the lost wax technique."

Pictures are from the seller.  My camera doesn't capture tiny details very well and I don't have experience photographing jewelry, but if you would like photos of the actual ring, please email me and I will send you some.

Condition: like new. Worn once or twice, will be polished and sent in original box.
Paid: $100 + shipping
Asking: $50 shipped US only (more for international)

Vintage 1930s blouse

This print is perfect for days when you want to vibe Bloomsbury and pretend you are Vanessa Bell or Virginia Woolf. The print is absolutely exquisite and unique. It is very old. You can tell because there are small metal snaps at the sleeve cuffs instead of buttons. The fabric is light and chiffon-like. I have never worn it, and it is in mint condition. I feel guilty for selling this, as if I should be giving it to a costume museum instead of selling it.

It will fit between sizes 0-6. I am selling it for 40.00 + 5.00 for shipping.

Listing ends November 6. Please leave your email if you are interested.





Elie Tahari Vanessa Lamb Leather Jacket






*posted on behalf of Karen*

Originally purchased from Nordstrom for just under $400, I’m selling this jacket as it runs slightly large for a S and I’d like some cash to buy a smaller size. The cowl and drape style is very similar to Vince leather jackets that are often twice as expensive! The jacket features a large drape collar that can button up around the neckline; no zip so it would be best for the fall season. The black leather lambskin feels amazing as well!

Here’s the description from Nordstrom:

A supple leather jacket is fashioned with a loosely draped collar that can be secured with a single snap for a chic, asymmetrical look. Tonal stitching subtly textures the shoulders. Rib-knit insets under the arms and at the sides perfect the fit.

Size: S but runs a bit large
Condition: worn once only, lambskin has unique variations
Asking: $185 + 25 (shipping from Canada)

Condition: Very lightly worn with lots of life left

Marc by Marc Jacobs Beverly Stripe Bow Top





*posted on behalf of Karen*

Originally purchased from Net-A-Porter on sale for $171 plus tax, the top is a dressed up twist on the classic Breton top. Cut in silk, it features off white and navy stripes, a boatneck neckline and super cute bow detailing along the back. Selling because it is too big for me and I was hoping to make it work as an oversized fit top.The lighting of the pictures is a bit strange, but rest assured that the top is off-white with crisp navy stripes! = )

Here’s the description from Net-A-Porter:

White-and-navy silk striped blouse with a ribbon bow trim at the back. Marc by Marc Jacobs blouse has three-quarter length sleeves, a slash neckline, and four gold buttons on the back to fasten.

Size: 8; can fit 4-8 depending on how loosely you wear it

*reduced* No. 6 Shearling Boots







*Posted on behalf of Xing*

Brand new, never worn (not even around the house) pair of No. 6 15" Nappa Shearling boots.They are black in colour and very very very soft. These currently retail at $420 (not inclusive of tax!) on No.6 official website. It says "This boot is one of our leather shearlings and has matching fur lining. It is slightly thinner and smother than the aviator shearling. It is water repellent, great for foul weather and best enjoyed barefoot." I bought them at the No. 6 store in NYC thinking that I would one day lose my chunky calves to be able to fit into them but have realised that that is never going to happen in this lifetime. They come in the original box, cardboard shoe tree that came with it when I first got it. Doesn't come with the No.6 paper bag though.

Size: 37 (I'm usually a 36 or 36.5 in other shoes. No.6 recommends going 1 size up)

Condition: Brand new (never worn, not outdoors, not indoors, not ever. my calves won't allow it)

Original price: 420 excluding tax ($457 including if my mental calculation is correct)

Asking for: $380 + Shipping (was $400 + Shipping)
