Mayle silk top, size 6

Beautiful embroidered top by Jane Mayle, size 6 (could fit a 4 as well, especially if you want to layer as in the top photo). Substantial ivory silk -- not see-through at all -- with embroidery in sky blue, pink, and black. Slight peplum waist that would look great belted. Gathered flutter sleeves also edged in embroidery. Front bodice as decorative black buttons. Side zip. All in all, a piece that exemplifies the feminine details that made Mayle such a beloved line. In excellent condition. I'm sad to let this one go, but it never leaves my closet.

Approximate measurements:
Armpit to armpit = 17"
Waist seam = 15"

Asking $115, including US shipping (a bit more to Canada). Listing ends 7 June. Please leave your email in your comment. Thanks!

The bag is 15 by 22 inches, with a zipper opening measuring 20." There is one zipper pocket inside." - from Osei-Duro

I used this bag off and on for a few months - so comfortable! It's in good condition, but the suede should be cleaned.

Clarks Suede Flats

*posted on behalf of Xing*

Description: Beautiful suede flats from Clarks. they are very sturdy and extremely well made. The colour is gorgeous. I've tried my best to capture the colour but it's very hard. The darker parts out of the light in the last picture is probably the most true colourwise but the actual shoes are much more beautiful. The suede itself is in excellent condition. They've been treated with an invisible protective coating before I ever wore it out. There are no scratches or scuffs or dirt on the suede. However, the soles near the heels are worn down on the outside and would need to be replaced. I've shown the extend of wear in the pictures. I'm selling these because they are too big for me despite me trying and trying and trying to wear them and make them work.

Size: UK4, I would say a 37 would be right. I wear a 36 mostly and they are too big for me!

Bought for: $130

Asking: $25 + shipping + paypal fees OR best offer

Ends: 2 weeks from today

No. 6 Clog Boots Black Size 37

*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); good for size 6.

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)

$200 + Shipping + paypal fees OR best offer

Repetto Blochoi Flats 3

*posted on behalf of Xing*

They have some wear on the leather at the heel area(shown in picture) but still have plenty of wear left in them.

Size: 36

Asking: $25 + shipping + Paypal fees OR best offer

Ends: 2 weeks from today
