NEW Lina Rennell Halter Swimsuit in Pink Marble

*first photo courtesy of Beklina

This is a custom swimsuit by Lina Rennell in pink marble print.  I love the print, but the suit is just too loose on me in the waist and bust.  The cut is amazing--great paneling details on the sides, and the fact that shorts are attached is just groovy!  I love the retro style and think being comfortable in a swimsuit is a must.  Halter neck for adjustable fit in the top half of the suit.   It has never been worn as I just received it in the mail. Since it's custom and I purchased it for the sale price, I cannot return it.

Note: the suit you'll be getting is pictured in photos 2-4.  It is the same style, but different print than in the first photo.

Suit is a size L but unlabeled
I was told this was best for 6-8, but I think it would be better for 8-10 or for someone who doesn't mind a little room in their suit.

Made of lycra with lining.

Asking $115 (purchased for $130 + shipping) with US shipping included.  Paypal only. 

Please leave your e-mail address in the comments section only if you are truly interested.

Dusen Dusen Acid Wash dress - Size 6

Never thought I would willingly part with any of my Dusen Dusen wares (especially from this collection, which is probably my favorite), but I'm both hella poor and not wearing this dress as much as I should be, so here we are. The acid wash denim zip-up dress is from Ellen's Spring 2010 collection. The first photo above is of me in the dress (original post from my blog here), the bottom from the internet somewhere to show the shape of the neckline. Metal zipper, true to size, measurements below. Other images of the dress can be found here.

Designer: Dusen Dusen

Material: Acid wash denim

Size/measurements: Size 6, 33.5" long, 16" bust (flat)

Worn: Handful of times, like new

Price asking: $90, including shipping within the continental US (the difference can be added for elsewhere)

Listing ends: August 6th

Viva Vena Silk & Jersey Dress (S/M)

1st photo via google. 2nd & 3rd photos are of actual dress

Here we have a super summery Viva Vena by Vena Cava dress that I bought at their final sample sale. It's one of their classic styles -- a t-shirt top (90% modal, 10% silk--crazy soft & sheer) connected to a 100% silk skirt. The skirt has a teal, black & white striped pattern.  

I know, I know, it looks really weirdly proportioned in the photo, but it's because the jersey is really drapey. When worn, it looks like the 3rd photo. I actually like wearing the top part a little bit bloused over the elastic waist.

Size: Marked L, but honestly, fits more like a S/M. (I've found Vena Cava's pieces to run a bit small) I am an XS, and could almost make it work but I'm super petite & the torso is a bit long on me.

Measurements (taken flat):
Bust: 18" unstretched 
Waist: 8" unstretched (not a typo) & 18.5" stretched all the way.
Length: 35" from shoulder

Condition: Nearly new; worn maybe once or twice at most. 

Asking: $50 + $5 shipping.

Steven Alan Bleeding Madras Ikat dress (P/XS)

(see more images here from net-a-porter)

Lovely Steven Alan dress in Bleeding Madras print. I love the print, but it's actually a bit large for me since I'm super short, so I've barely worn it. Looks brand new! Buttons at back of neck and zips at the waist, with a perfectly summery open back. 2 hip pockets too!

Size: P (XS)

Bust: hard to say, but there is a bit more room given the open back. I'm a 32A, and I found it a bit roomy.
Waist: 12.5" flat
Length: approx. 33" from shoulder.

Asking: $100 shipped to the US (more for international)

Mociun tie front dress in Ikat (M)

First photo via google. 2nd & 3rd of actual dress.

I bought this dress on eBay a while back, hoping that an M would fit, though I am usually XS/S in Mociun. Turns out it's too big, & it deserves a home where it will actually be worn.

Size: M (Medium)

Condition: I've never worn it myself, but it was probably worn by the seller I bought it from. 2 sets of small hook & eye closures were added very neatly if not professionally, to help with keeping the neckline closed. They could easily be removed if you prefer without damaging the dress. Overall, it's in very good condition & seriously gorgeous. 

Asking: $200 shipped in the US (more for international)
