Amazing pair of J. Crew sandals that just don't get much wear around here, so off they go to a better home.  In excellent condition and worn only a few times, the leather's in great shape and there are only minimal scuffs on the bottom of the shoe given the minimal wear.  Beautiful brass hardware with good heft, none of that flimsy buckle crap you see on cheap shoes.  Beautiful pair of sandals in the most beautiful shade of camel, goes with everything!

Paid: Around $100
Asking: $70 incl. US shipping

Beautiful Epice linen stole

This is a 100% linen stole by Epice in beautiful ethereal print. Please look at photo for the color, this is really, really pretty and a great complement to summer and spring outfit. Bought it at New York's now gone Auto for full price which was around $195. Never worn, it was one of the items I loved adoring but could not incorporate it into my monotone outfit. It's too pretty to stay in the closet so it is time to look for a new owner would can wear this beauty.

Sessun Cropped Trench Coat Small

I've been searching for the perfect trench coat and this almost fit the bill, unfortunately the sleeves are awkwardly long on me. I bought this on sale for $94.95 from Yoox, but failed to return it on time. It's a size Small and is true to size. The camel color is most accurately represented by the stock photos. I'm sorry I don't have a nice digital camera so I had to resort to using my phone to take a picture of the lining and the pocket inside the left side of the jacket. 

Description: Cropped short, this crisp cotton Sessun trench has classic rainflaps, epaulets and double-breasted buttoning. Finished with slit front pockets, buckled accents at the sleeves and a coordinating plaid lining.

Flat measurements: Length ~19", Armpit-to-armpit ~19", Sleeve ~24"
