[SOLD]Loeffler Randall Nude Pumps, size 8

I swore off heels like this a few years ago. But when I saw these on LoGE I was pretty sure I would look like Cate Blanchett in them (right?). And they are gorgeous! But it was not to be, as my feet have other ideas about heels with no platform.

Loeffler Randall Tamsin Pumps in Vachetta nude leather. The Tamsin is part of LR's Classic collection. They were only worn twice by the original owner and I never wore them, just tried them on. The insides are really clean and the sole has minimal, expected wear and a small scuff in the leather on the right heel, which isn't even noticeable when worn.

Perfectly chic, pointed toe, low-cut sides, 3 inch heel. Size 8. I'd say this is true to size, but the toebox is on the narrow side due to the style. Leather sole.

These retail for about $350 on the Loeffler Randall website. I paid $50 + $10 shipping in the U.S. and am asking the same.

Listing ends in one week.

APC wedges, size 37

Lovely APC wedges that I lusted after and bought in the end-of-season-sales last year, only to a) have my feet apparently grow half a size and b) remember that I don't actually wear wedges in my daily life of science-labbing. They are adorable with fall dresses, and are super comfy for the 3.5" wedge height. APC makes a version of these every season. Never been worn out of the house, but I don't have the original box to send them to you in. Paid: $285 from Saks, on sale. Asking: $150 +shipping. Listing ends Sept 8. Good luck!

Isabel Marant boots, size 36

Gorgeous Isabel Marant western-style boots with the classic wood heel. I LOVED these boots, but bought them and never wore them because they were a little too tight on me (if you've seen my other posts of the day, you'll sense a pattern!). Gorgeous soft, slouchy suede, versatile color, fun details. Someone please, please give these the love they deserve... Paid: $380 on sale. Asking: $250+ shipping (not in original box, but will send in another Marant box). Ends Sept 8. Oh man, someone please love these how I wish I could. (That middle picture is of the "Isabel Marant" label stamped on the inner sole, but I couldn't really get a good photo. Email if you want me to try again...)

Repetto ballet flats, 36

Pretty caramel-colored Repetto's, size 36. I think my feet have grown in the last few months--I'm posting a few pairs of shoes bought a while ago that I seem to have outgrown??  Worn maybe 5 times, bought at Bird in Park Slope. $60 +shipping, not in original box, listing will end Sept 8!

Salvatore Ferragamo Platform Pump in sueded hayers Heel 15 cm

*posted on behalf of Genevieve*

I bought these from Ferragamo this year for $850. They were worn once to try on at home and I cannot return them now. I bought them for an event and wound up going with a different shoe. These are brand new in original box with dust-bag  They even have heal replacements. They are an 8.5 and pretty true to size. They fit me perfectly but I have a slightly narrow foot so I would suggest these for a narrow 8.5 or regular 8. Asking $595 shipped.
Here is a link to a very similar shoe being sold now by Ferragamo:

*Reduced*: Vintage Coach Saddle Bag

Awesome vintage Coach leather bag in a saddle bag style and a great color. Has the typical brass hardware of vintage Coach bags. Unlined inside, with one large zippered pocket spanning the length of the bag. Also subtle slit pockets on the back and front. In addition to the removable strap good for shoulder or cross-body wear, it has a handle at the top of the bag and can be carried like a briefcase or medicine bag. A lot of nice vintage Coach bags floating around but I haven't seen many in this style and color.

Condition: Good vintage condition. There is a bit of fading of the red on the outside, this is only noticeable when compared with the inside red. There are also a few marks and dents on it as shown in the photos. Given the vintage Coach aesthetic though I don't think this detracts from its beauty and there's nothing that affects its functionality.

Color: Red with a slightly coral or orangey pinkish tint.

Size: Substantial size for a purse. Measures nearly 11" across in length, 8 1/2" in height, and 3 3/4" in width across the bottom and 2 1/2" across the width of the top -- a lot can fit inside.

Asking: $75 $55 + $10 shipping (it is somewhat heavy).

Listing ends: September 2.

Maloles Suede Studded Black Ballet Flats

I purchased these Maloles ballet flats from Creatures of Comfort a few years back but never wore them. I recently rediscovered them and tried them on but they are now a bit too small. They are a size 37 and I think they would best fit a US size 6 / 6.5. They have a rounded toe, and a 0.5" heel.

They are great everyday shoes with a bit of whimsy! These are in virtually new condition, only tried on indoors.

Originally: Don't remember, around $200-300?
Asking: $45 + shipping (US only preferred)

Re-list: Rachel Comey Booties Size 9

Awesome Rachel Comey red suede Sir Barton booties. 3-inch wooden heel with a leather sole and a rubber toe cap. Brown elastic goring on both sides. I love these but I have another pair of Sir Barton's and my collection of ankle boots is larger than my apartment allows, so off these go.

Condition: Excellent. Worn a handful of times, with very minimal wear to the suede. The heels have a few marks and the soles show a bit of wear. But the body of the shoe looks nearly new.

Color: A maroonish red with a slightly faded hue, hard to capture in the photos. 

Size: 9. These fit true to size in length, but like most other Rachel Comey shoes they are on the narrow side. I think this model is particularly comfortable.

Paid: $200 on sale from Solestruck; originally about $350.

Asking: $115 $90 + $10 shipping in the U.S. (more to Canada).

Listing ends: August 31.

Final Re-list: Girl by Band of Outsiders Silk Blouse Size 1 (Small)

Gorgeous silk "carla"top by Girl by Band of Outsiders, never worn. Navy silk with a white, pink, purple, and light blue abstract dot pattern. This top has beautiful details: the material at the sleeves is slightly gathered, and buttons covered in the same fabric go all the way down the back (see the second photo, despite the bad lighting). My photos really don't do this shirt justice, I've just never managed to wear it and my new apartment has no closet space so off it goes. Really good price for a beautifully crafted shirt.

Size: 1. I'd say this fits a size small for a more fitted look but could fit an xs for a slightly looser look. Measures 17" across the bust, 19" across at the hem, and 11.5" across the shoulders.

Color: A true navy with white, bubble gum pink, purple, and slate blue abstract dots. The colors are most accurate in the first photo from Eaton Trading Company where I bought it.

Condition: New with tags, never worn and perfect.

Material: silk.

Paid: about $110 with shipping on sale from Eaton Trading Company -- originally at least $250.

Asking: $85 $75 $59 + $5 shipping in the U.S. (more to Canada).

Listing ends: August 30.
