Fashion For Sale

Wondering what you’ll be this Halloween?  Here are some fabulous flapper fashions to inspire you in case you are into vintage looks.  With the upcoming Great Gatsby movie on its way, you’ll also be setting future trends, for sure!

aaaa

Kim Kardashian rocked this look in 2008.  What do you think of her Halloween outfit?

What’s so great about this Halloween outfit pick is that you don’t have to rely on those one-size-fits-all, cheesy, pre-packaged options. You can go dress hunting in regular stores simply by looking for drop waist dresses or ornate 20s style sequined pieces that you can likely wear again. Here are some 20’s flapper style dresses straight off the runway as proof!

If you’re not into the idea of investing in a designer dress for Halloween though, keep in mind that you can probably convert something from your current closet into a flapper outfit with a few key accessories.  Think gloves, fur boas and shawls, strings of pearls, t-strap heels and feathers in the hair.

For  my friend’s Flapper-themed bachelorette party, this is exactly what we did.  My friend and I actually just DIY-ed our own headpieces by choosing a ribbon (you can choose a more elaborate trim too) and then bobby pinning a feather to it in our hair.

Here are some of the party pics!

Here’s a close-up of my outfit details (Sue Wong dress, Aldo shoes).

So do you know how you’re dressing, come October 31st?

Ok ladies, I’m cleaning out my closet(s).  And I’m editing down my shoe collection.  Here are some size 7 shoes that you can buy for just $15 each (includes s&h).

Message me here if you want any of these (obviously with a description), making sure to include your email so that I can confirm ship to address.  thanks!

 

These Anne Klein heels are in need of a little love and care.  But a little repair, to adhere the leather back to the base is all it needs.

These Calvin Klein platform, patent leather heels have a cool studding detail and buckle ankle strap. I only wore these tweed heels once and then quickly realized that they were a bit big for me.

I fell in love with these black and white, floral heels but they’ve sort of just sat in my closet without being worn for the past year, so I’m giving them up.

These dusty pink suede shoes are sexy, soft and comfortable I promise!

How funny that I’m selling these “Gaaye” shoes on the same day that NY just finished its gay pride parade 🙂

These heels are Chanel-inspired with the tweed, floral and pearl details.  I wore these for work.

These heels are conservative, practically new and great for work.

These practical work shoes feel like you’re walking on air when you’re wearing them.

I love the color of these peach metallic heels but I for some reason couldn’t find occasions to wear them enough so now they can be yours.

 

Please note that the shoes, having been used, will have some scuffs, and signs of wear and that I am in no way presenting these as being new.

Payment can be made through paypal.com once you confirm your order.

Guess what ladies, I’m cleaning out my closet which means that there will be some fashion for sale!  I”ll give each item a week’s posting here before turning to ebay to sell my goods.  The first item is a vintage pink ruffled dress that I last wore on my trip to Longwood Gardens in PA.

I wore it here with my silver Prada Saffiano bag and silver ballet slippers but the pink also looks great with white, Tiffany blue, nude, and other pastels.  You could even rough it up by pairing it with a black leather jacket to counter all the girliness.

I loved how the wind kept blowing it up, creating a totally new silhouette.

The dress features cap sleeves and a ruffle-front blouse.

I couldn’t resist having a little fun in the garden while there 🙂

I’ll take best offers but starting bid must be $20 or more.  The size runs like a size 4 (elastic waist fits a size 25”-28” most comfortably) and the dress comes with a matching pink striped tie belt in the same fabric.  You can tie it as a bow in the back like I did, or wear it over a cardigan or another top to literally tie the whole outfit together. Here’s a shot of the back – sorry the flash washed out the color.

So start bidding and don’t forget to leave me your email if you are leaving me a comment else I can’t contact you!

What an amazing weekend it was!  The weather was 70-80 degrees, I got to catch up on some much needed rest, productively finished up a bunch of errands, AND I caught up with friends.  Here is what I wore one of those days.

 


I’ts a Forever 21 cap-sleeved, heart-printed mini-dress, H&M turquoise, fitted blazer (also worn here), H&M ballet flats, a Topshop chain-link purse and some old accessories that I got from Mango and Target.  Similar to the Chanel purse that I have on sale, I’m selling the dress and blazer for only $12 each including shipping.  Just leave me a comment here to let me know what you want and remember to leave your email so I can contact you for your ship to address.

Here’s a close-up of the dress’s cute heart print.

The cap sleeves can be seen here.

The dress looks great as a relaxed straight-cut dress, belted, or layered under a skirt and worn as a blouse, or layered under a cardigan or blazer. Let me know if you want it!

 

I’m cleaning out my closet ladies so keep checking back for more fashion for sale!

I will never forget the first time I bought my first Chanel.  I had just received my bonus check from work and decided it was time to treat myself.  I fell in love with the sparkly chain and buttery soft calfskin leather and with just one left in inventory, I knew I  had to have it.  And now it can be yours!

I’m taking best offers just leave me your offer as a comment here along with your email so that I can reach you.  Winning bidder can pay me through Paypal.com.  I’m considering all offers for the next month or so!

The only wear that you’ll really notice is what you see here – the minor scuffs.

The CC logo pushes back to open up the purse.  And as you can see, the interior has a zippered pocket and original authenticity card.

It also has a convenient pocket for a cell phone.  And the interior is in great condition as you can see.

Chanel Chanel Chanel, ladies!  You’ve gotta love it!

Here’s the back and bottom of the purse!

It’s classic without being like everyone else’s Chanel.  And the size is perfect as an everyday bag.  Here it is on me so you can get a feel for proportion. It’s 12″ wide at the base and 8″ tall.

  And this is the purse with a work outfit (above) and a play outfit (below).   See how it can transition in both arenas?


I’m looking to sell the purse for around $1500 so let me know your best offer.

Thanks everyone and happy shopping!  Please forward this link to anyone you think might be interested.
