Kate Spade Irving Place Little Nadine in French Grey

 Stock photo

 No creases in the leather, just an odd angle!

 Tiny dot near right. 

This beautiful bag is gently used (for about a month). I bought it directly from the Kate Spade website for full price ($395), and realised that it's not a shape that works for me. It's been stored in the dust bag, and will ship that way!

The color is called French Grey but is a sort of mushroom grey. The shape is vintage and classy, with a handle and a cross-body strap.

There are tiny scratches on the gold plated turn lock and one on the leather; nothing beyond very, very light wear (couldn't even photograph). There are gold feet on the bottom as well.

The inside has a zippered pocket and is lined in polka dot fabric. I am including a photo of a light dot on the fabric.

Height: 8"
Width: 5"
Length: 10.5"

Price: $250, which includes shipping and insurance. 
Listing ends in one week (Tuesday 5 November).

Isabel Marant Ankle boots 36

Size 36 black leather Isabel Marant ankle boots - slightly less western than the Dickers, I believe, but very similar. Fit a US size 6 quite snugly, might be better for a 5.5 foot. I bought these from Gravity Pope for 500.00 back in summer 2010 (they were on sale down from 600.00, I think they probably came out in Spring 2009). I wore them nonstop, as you can see, during 2010/2011. I put sole protectors on the bottom of the boots, which are still in decent shape, and had the heel taps replaced (one has since come off). There is some wear on the heels, as the wood veneer Marant used for them did not hold up all that well. The right boot has also had the zipper replaced. I don't wear these any more, but they still have a lot of life in them and I'd love to pass them on to someone who will love them as much as I do. Yours for 50.00 plus shipping from Vancouver, Canada.

Coclico Black Heels 37

Size 37 Coclico heels, black leather with ankle strap. I fell in love with these in 2010, and bought them from Gravity Pope in Vancouver even though they were a size too big. Learned my lesson after actually wearing them a couple of times for only a few hours (they are definitely true to size!), but I couldn't bear parting with them until now. They're still in excellent shape and have had sole protectors put on. I paid about 300.00 for them, but they're yours for 100.00 plus shipping from Canada.

Shabd Silk Top, Size Small

This is a beautiful top by Shabd Simon-Alexander. I wore it once for a special occasion, but have not worn it since. I'm hoping it goes to someone who will get some good use out of it. It drapes beautifully, and can be dressed up or worn more casually. The first picture is mine and shows the actual shirt I'm selling. The second picture is Shabd's and shows the fit of the top. It's in perfect condition. The back is slightly longer than the front of the shirt. When measured flat, front length is 20" and back length is 22".

Paid $310
Asking $78+ $6 US shipping

Please email jwal506 at gmail dot com with any questions. Thanks!

Frye Veronica Shortie Boots in Black, Size 8

This is an awesome pair of boots by Frye. They are really comfortable and durable. I'm selling only because I don't live in a climate that requires multiple pairs of boots, and I am also trying to get ready for a move. They are gently used and are in excellent pre-owned condition. I love that these are leather-soled but still have rubber on the bottom to prevent slipping. I will ship the boots in their original box with all original packaging. Below is the description from Frye's website.
