Modcloth 'Ryu' sweater with felt bow details, size Medium

I bought this last year off the ModCloth website. I normally wear a size S and there were only M's left, so I thought I could get away with it.  Alas, the sweater is just a bit too roomy on me, and I've decided to let someone else enjoy it. It's made of an acrylic knit and the large bow detail is made of a heavier felt-like material.

Bust (flat measurement armpit to armpit): 16.5"
Length: 22"

Original price: $45
Asking price: $15 shipped

Jeffrey Campbell sandals, size 6 - never worn

These sandals have been sitting in my closet for far too long - I just couldn't seem to match them with the neutrals in my wardrobe, but they are so cute, comfortable, and well made that I thought I'd pass them along for someone else to enjoy. They have a sassy little kitten heel and nice lizard-print detail.

Size: 6 (I usually wear between a 6 and 6.5), true to size
Heel: <2 inches

Originally paid: Can't remember exactly, maybe $70 on sale?
Asking price: $25 + $5 shipping
Listing ends Sunday, May 6.

Label: Maloles (they usually retail for $200)
Size: 36.5, fits true to size
Heel: 0.5 inch

Asking$25 includes shipping

Classic Black Patent Leather ALDO Pumps Size 39

Posted on behalf of Parisa

Classic Black Patent Leather ALDO Pumps Size 39

These are made by ALDO and have a really classic shape to the shoe, with an almond toe and a 4.25" heel. Genuine leather black patent uppers and sole. Size 39 translates to approximately 8.

In great condition, worn out only once. A few very light scuff marks on the inside front of the toe. Hard to make out; definitely impossible to see when you wear them! Passing these on because they've always been too small, even though god knows I've tried to make them work.

Paid $80 new, asking $25 with shipping. Don't have the original box anymore.

[Relist] Nanette Lepore Floral silk skirt, size 6

Darling silk and linen blend skirt from Nanette Lepore. It has a tab front closure at the waist, pockets, belt loops, and cream crocheted trim. The colors are so vibrant and can really be paired with a lot-- a cotton v-neck tee and sandals or flats would complete the outfit. Since the skirt is part silk, there are small imperfections in the texture, much like you'd see in 100% raw silk fabric. It's incredibly comfortable, but since I wear more a-line type skirts, this one isn't quite in the rotation.

waist- 16"
hip- 19"
length- 19"

Paid: ??
Asking: $25, shipped $20 shipped

Matt Bernson Waif Ankle Strap Sandal, Size 9

From amazon.com:

Matt Bernson amps up your favorite warm-weather silhouette with the Waif sandal. This strappy shoe has an eye-catching two-tone looks, with ultra-thin straps and a studded outsole that brings a little bit of the runway into your everyday look.

I love these sandals, but the ankle straps are not flattering on my short legs. They've only been tried on at home, and are unworn otherwise. They are incredibly comfortable, as the leather of the straps do not dig in when buckled, and the foot bed is nicely padded. There is a small scuff on the foot bed of the left sandal, but that would be easily covered up by your foot.

I pictured wearing these with cutoff jean shorts, and a billowy tank top, or a maxi skirt and simple white tee. 

sole: about 10"
width: 3.9"
height from sole to ankle strap: 4.5"

Paid: $160
Asking: $70, including shipping
