{SOLD} MOCIUN Shade Dress in Cave Flowers [reduced]

Beautiful and rare Shade Dress by Mociun in Cave Flowers print made of sheer silk.  Exquisite double breast details with covered buttons, and hooks at waist.  Sheer back.  Worn once for an anniversary dinner, but hasn't seen the outside world since!  This dress is such a stunner that I think it should go to someone who will wear it more often.  The print is robust and the colors are incredible.  Would look as stunning with tights as it does with bare legs.  Has really cute two-toned pockets as well.

Vain & Vapid Leo Shawl Collar Dress - M

*posted on behalf of Sarah*

I bought this from LoGE about 2 years ago, brand new at the time.  I've only worn it once, and I've decided I just don't have enough cool occasions to wear this awesome dress.   The size is medium (34-35.5 inch bust, fits like a size 6-8).  

Here's the description from the website:
"Vain and Vapid Leo Shawl Collar Dress in Blue Gray Lightweight Wool . . . . The new design features a slight bell sleeve and less of the sweep in the bodice of the dress. The new fabric is very soft and has great movement. The dress is fitted at the shoulders, very loose fit in the bodice. Double breasted shawl collar with 4 buttons. Asymmetric hem dips down in the back. 3/4 sleeves. Fabric 100% tropical wool, color bluish gray."

First pic is from the Vain and Vapid website, the last picture is the actual dress.

Jofama Moto Jacket

*posted on behalf of Alyssa*

This stunning moto jacket from Jofama fits a chest size 34. It fits true to size and could fit size 2 or 4. This jacket is fully lined with a warm, thick, soft layer of faux fair on the entire body of the jacket (collar, lapel, shoulder back, front, sides, and wrists--starting from the button tab cuffs). It is not lined through the arm/elbow area to make room for layering.
It is a substantial jacket with a good weight to it, however it seems to be designed so well that you don't feel the weight on your shoulders weighing you down. Pretty cool! It's the same weight as some of my other jackets but feels much lighter. It fits well to the body. Can be worn with just a tank top/shirt, or with a sweater underneath--without looking poofy.
The outer is 100% real leather and is quality. You can tell from the texture and the smell (yup, smells like leather!)

The asymmetrical zip makes this motorcycle jacket stylish and feminine. The zippers are quality too. They don't get stuck and they seem hardy. 

There are also 2 zipper-lined pockets that fully fit my hands, even though the pocket slits are hardly noticeable when they're not in use. They can be zipped up or down.

The color is a very dark brown. It appears almost black, depending on the light. This jacket could be worn during fall, winter, and spring weather. So classy, trendy, cute, and classic at the same time.

As for size/fit: If you're 5'3, it'll hit you at your hips. If you're 5'6 or taller, it'll have a more cropped look like in the photos with the model.

Never worn outside. Brand new without tags.

Original price I paid was $300. Selling for $250 with shipping included! If you want to give me an offer on it, please respond in the comments with your email and I will contact you. Thank you :)

Brand New Banana Republic Wool Shawl Collar Wraparound Coat in Ivory

*posted on behalf of Kay*

Ridiculously glamorous coat that was bought when I first saw a white coat styled on Garance Dore's site, but has also sat unworn in my closet ever since its purchase. Very classic styling with a knit shawl collar, open wraparound styling with self tie belt (same woolen material as the coat), on seam pockets, unlined yet very warm, and can easily be dressed up over a dress but looks right at home open over sweats and plimsolls (the look I saw on GD's site). Nice classic contrast to a sea of black coats during winter. Size medium, I'd say true to size though due to the open styling one could easily wear it open for a larger size Large if one wishes. Color is a true ivory (sorry for the photo quality, lighting makes it look more yellow than it really is). 100% felted wool exterior, super cozy.

Asking: $125 incl. US shipping

Auction ends in a week, please email offers and/or questions to kayw13 (at) gmail. Thanks!

Brand New Dolce Vita Ikat Navajo/Tribal Print Poncho - XS/S

*posted on behalf of Kay*

I stalked this for MONTHS when this first came out since the XS/S flew out of stores, and since finally getting one in that size, it's sat unworn in my closet. I've held onto this with high, high hopes of wearing this month after month, but it's time to face the music. Fully lined, amazingly thick but NOT heavy ikat navajo/tribal print exterior with fully lined silk interior, zips all the way up in front with a slightly exaggerated high neck, open "arm holes" and two front pockets. It's sized XS/S but since it's open styling on both sides (there's a little toggle that creates "holes" for your arms to go through when toggled), it can honestly fit anything from an XS all the way up to an XL.  

Asking: $200 incl. US shipping

Auction ends in a week, please email offers and/or questions to kayw13 (at) gmail. Thanks!

Steven Alan Navajo Coat - Size 6

*posted on behalf of Kay*

Bought new at the SA store in West Hollywood, this coat has seen wear maybe only three, four times max. In excellent condition, it seeks a loving and caring home that will give it the wear it deserves unlike mine, where it's sat in the closet hiding and hidden away. Fully lined, cuffed sleeves and an amazing navajo stripe print, with pockets in front and a great warmth while the shape is tailored (i.e. doesn't add bulk). Size 6, I'd say definitely true to size.  

Asking: $150 incl. US shipping

Auction ends in a week, please email offers and/or questions to kayw13 (at) gmail. Thanks!

Anthropologie Up & Away Dress NWT Sz Small

I just received this dress as a gift, but I actually already own it!
Ha! The gift giver did not provide a gift receipt, so I figured why
not let a fellow LoGE reader have a chance to own it! It is a size
Small, NWT and is currently sold out online. The small fits like a
standard size 4 and accommodates many different figures. Looks perfect
with boots and tights, but will also be a great spring piece. I have
included a stock photo, and a link to a blog where the author is
sporting the dress. Please email me with any questions.

Asking $40 shipped w/tracking
Condition: NWT

{SOLD!} Stewart + Brown Ellet Blanket Coat in Charcoal

Really beautiful coat by Stewart + Brown in boiled Merino wool.  Lined in silk for a completely luxurious feel.  I've worn this coat a handful of times for special occasions, but don't feel it fits me well.  It's cozy and versatile with its dramatic collar.  Features button closures both inside and out, tie belt, and fashionable slits at each sleeve.  The coat you will receive is charcoal as pictured in the last 2 photos.  The first 2 photos are for styling purposes and so you can see the details.  Complete with beautiful shell buttons.  Purchased from Beklina.  In excellent condition.

I did have the buttons moved very slightly by a professional tailor--totally unnoticeable.

Size M
Bust 38" but super roomy
Waist 36"
Sleeves 24"
Length 38"

Asking $115 with US shipping included.  Paypal only.

Robert Clergerie 'Cript' wedges - size 8

*posted on behalf of Caitlin*
Gorgeous leather 'Cript' wedges by Robert Clergerie. I purchased these earlier this year for $635 and they have never been worn, they are in perfect condition. They are a size 8 and have a 3" heel with .5" platform. Fit true to size. Asking $265 shipped

New with tags black stripe linen romper by Built By Wendy. Retailed for $270. Size small, but would nicely fit a size extra-small as well. Has two hip pockets and yoke detail. Hook and eye closure in the back. Asking $70 shipped

Acne 'Liberte' black pleated floral dress - size 38 (fits 4/6)

*posted on behalf of Caitlin*

Beautiful black floral 'Liberte' dress by Acne. I bought this online from Opening Ceremony and only wore it a few times. It is in excellent condition. Retailed for $680. Size 38, which is equivalent to a US 4/6. Has vertical pleating, asymmetrical layering across the front, a sheer back panel and raw edge detail. Asking $100 shipped.

[SOLD] Zero + Maria Cornejo Alpaca Shrug/Cardigan Sweater

photos from creatures of comfort

Absolutely gorgeous, handknit chunky sweater from designer Zero+Maria Cornejo. Very heavy and cozy and perfect neutral gray, made of 100% superfine alpaca.  Hooded with extra-long sleeves and faux-bone button on the front. A great example of the "cocoon" shape Maria Cornejo loves.

I purchased this on final sale from Creatures of Comfort last year. I love it but I'm not getting much wear out of it. I've reinforced the buttonhole, but otherwise this is in beautiful condition. It is handmade and so has some very minor irregularities, but these were present when the sweater was new. There are no holes or stains.

Size is medium, but I would say it's better suited to a larger small or a smaller medium. Having said that, it has lots of stretch and give and is not structured. (This is why it's so hard to photograph!)

Retailed for $789; I paid $214; asking $110 shipped in the U.S. Listing ends in one week.

{SOLD!} Primoeza Sample Sweater with Shoulder Patches

Lovely Primoeza sweater made of very soft wool.  This piece is one of a kind.  The patches at the shoulder are not perfectly symmetrical, but it's not very noticeable when on.  I love the weaving detail at the shoulder, and have yet to see this technique in any of Elizabeth's other pieces. Features round neck and raglan sleeves.  The wool is a deep navy as pictured in the first photo.  Only worn twice for very short periods of time.  In fantastic condition!
