No. 6 5" High Heel Buckle Boot, Size 39, Leather upper, wood sole.

Posted on behalf of Lynsey

For sale: No. 6 5" High Heel Buckle Boot, Size 39, Leather upper, wood sole. 

I love these boots, and have been wearing them for about 1.5 years. In fact, I have too many pairs of No. 6 clogs, so am trying to pare down my collection a bit. These are unlined, so a size 39 could fit someone who is around an 8-9 size shoe.

Condition: They have been worn a lot, and the leather really only gets better with age. I've had the bottoms resoled once. There is wear on the outer right top part of the toe of the boots, otherwise the wood is also in good condition.

Asking: $200 plus shipping (which is probably around $10, but we'll see).
I paid $390 + tax for these at the No. 6 store in New York.

Bookhouahome Wide Triangle Tote Bag

Bookhouahome Wide Triangle Tote Bag

Beautiful tote by Bookhouahome.  From the description:

Original drawing screen printed on linen canvas with hand mixed textile ink - the solvent free ink.  Bottom portion of the bag made with black organic cotton canvas.  The fabric has a wrinkly look because it's been pre-washed to remove any starch.  Handles made from upcycled leather in a beautiful brown colour.  Approx. dimensions: W 18 x H 12 x D 5 inches, handles 3/4 x 24 inches, one inside pocket.  You can see more photos here: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/60510964.

This bag shows some sign of wear - some very slight fading to the bottom sides of the bag where it naturally rubs against your side when you walk.  One small area of fading right down a small line (2-3 inches) at the bottom (shown in photograph).  Lots of wear left in this beautiful handmade bag!

Paid: $80 + shipping
Asking: $40 (includes shipping with delivery confirmation to all lower 48)

Frye Veronica Slouch Boots 8.5 (9) in Sapphire

Posted on behalf of Heather 

Frye Veronica Slouch Boots 8.5 (9) in Sapphire

These lovely blue boots are practically unworn - they fit just right and then I went and had one of those babies that makes your feet grow.  
They are size 8.5 but these fit me back when I was a true 9, so could probably be good for either.  You can wear them all the way up your calf or the leather is so soft that you can also wear them slouchy.  These are super sturdy and very comfortable.  No damage or wear to note.

These are no longer offered in this color but you can see more detailed shots of this style here: http://www.zappos.com/frye-veronica-slouch.

Paid: $328
Asking: $150 + $10 shipping (for the lower 48, includes delivery confirmation)

Never worn! Brand new. Tags still attached.

This is such a FUN, ADORABLE dress: it's the Meridian Dress (in the ORANGE color) from Chicago-designer Jennifer Beeman's label HOUND (from her Spring/Summer 2011 "Between Wind & Water" collection).

100% Linen
Size 6.
Small patch pocket on chest, and 2 slit pockets at skirt line (see picture)
Wide scoop back.
Made in Chicago, USA.

Length from top of shoulder to hem: 33.5"

I LOVE this dress, it's just a too broad for me at the shoulders (my shoulders are very narrow)—but for a normal broad shouldered gal, this shouldl fit great.

Pics #2-3 are from the Hound site.
Pics #4-7 are of the actual dress.

I paid: $148.
Asking: $110.


Listing ends WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10th.

Brand new dress, never worn, tags still attached!

Looks fantastic either worn over shorts, or paired with leggings for fall.

I love the dress—funky & swingy (really soft/smooth cotton). Unfortunately, it's just a little too small on me so I'm finally selling it.

    •    63% tencel 37% rayon
    •    Hidden button closure
    •    Adjustable waistband
    •    Front side pockets
    •    Unlined

Print: Lilac Abstract Roses.
This dress is marked a "2"—because it's imported, 2 here = "Medium." It fits me great & I am a Size 8, so it's it's definitely a true "Medium."

Pics #s 5-7 of actual dress.

I paid:  $145
Asking:  $70

*Reduced/Relist* (final listing) DUSEN DUSEN "CLAIRE" DRESS / Size 8

The "Claire Dress" is one of the favorites from Brooklyn designer Ellen Van Dusen's SUMMER 2012 DUSEN DUSEN line & is sold out in everywhere in this print. I looked high & low to find this one—unfortunately it's just too small for me.

NEVER WORN, brand new, with tags.

Fitted tank bodice with princess seams, slightly a-line skirt with gathering seams at waist. Classic, very feminine cut with a gentle "poof" at the skirt.

100% cotton.

Print: "Black Grid" print with adorable alternate "Pink Grid" pockets! (see pic)

Sizing: This runs a bit SMALL, and is quite fitted in the chest. So I'd say it best fits: a Size 6 or a very small Size 8. If you're very busty, this might be too tight on top.

I paid: $172.
Asking: $120.

Boy by Band of Outsiders shirt in a size 2

For Heather

Boy by Band of Outsiders shirt in a size 2. This was purchased at Saks last winter and has been sitting in closet unworn, but with the tags taken off. This is a classic, but I just never wear collared shirts. You should know Band of Outsiders sizing goes 0,1,2,3... so this is the approximately equivalent to a size 6. Asking $60 plus $10 for shipping, insurance, tracking. Please contact me at anullac@gmail.com for questions.

L' Agence Jacket, S

For Heather

This is a lightweight L'AGENCE jacket in a size small. It was purchased at Barney's Co-op a year or so ago and worn lightly. It has a hood which can be folded into the collar, and the front zips up with buttons over it.  The tag which bears the labels name is held on only by the corners and is coming detached. It's an easy fix but just letting you know in case it matters to you. It does not effect the jacket's aesthetic. The jacket has some metallic threads in the material. The picture showing it on the hanger is the actual jacket, the other is the stock photo. Asking $100 plus $10 for insurance, tracking,shipping. Please contact me at anullac@gmail.com for questions.

Acne leather jacket in a size 38

For Heather

The style is their Scuba Leather Jacket. This comes with a leather hood that zips on although it is not pictured. This is a really nice jacket, beautiful leather. The picture on the hanger is actual jacket, the other is a photo of the jacket from Creatures of Comfort. 

Asking $300 plus $20 for shipping, insurance and tracking (it's heavy leather!).

Please contact me at anullac@gmail.com for questions.

New Karen Walker 'Bunny' Sunglasses in Tea Brown

For Kay

I had been wanting and wanting these for the better part of the last six months only to finally dive in until I couldn't wait any longer, order them online, and then find out they don't fit my face. I got these literally last Saturday and they've been tried on once, and put right back into their case.  Never worn outside, never even seen the light of day.  Amazing pair of Karen Walker 'Bunny' sunglasses in the tea brown color, with an amazing shape that's just funky enough to stand on their own but classically elegant enough to stand the style test of time. Will come with everything it came with originally, original Karen Walker case, cleaning cloth and tag.  

Paid: $210 + 15 for shipping
Asking: $200 incl. US shipping

Cambridge Satchel Bag, Black 13"

For Joanna

(Top photo courtesy of this cutie on Chictopia)

Black 13" leather Cambridge Satchel bag, in excellent condition. I bought this about a year ago and loved it so much that I got it in red as well. Surprisingly I wear the red one way more and hardly use this one anymore, so hopefully someone else can give it more love! I obsessed over which size was best and decided on the 13", which I feel looks just right and works really well for everyday use. (I don't think I could've fit my essentials in the 11" one, and the 15" just seemed awkwardly huge to me for the shape/to wear as a shoulder bag.) Clean, minimal, classic, made of very durable, high-quality structured leather with classic buckles and adjustable strap. 13"W x 9"H x 3". It's basically flawless -- there are two very fine, almost non-existent scratches that I tried to show in the 2nd photo but they're barely noticable.

Paid: $170
Asking: $108 + shipping
