Below are a few things I'm selling on [livejournal.com profile] thriftstoreuk (EDIT - here, repost here) and [livejournal.com profile] niceboots (EDIT - here, repost here). This is a re-post on my lj for those of you who aren't part of those selling communities!

There will be more over the next few weeks and this is the first batch. Clothes, Accessories, Random Stuff... you name it. It's just time for a good clear out of things I don't/can't use any more. I will only sell only things I'd happily wear myself (or use... if I fitted into them, or they were my style any more), and I'm picky - the rest will get trashed / if it's okay will go to second hand shops.

And just to tempt you in...



Corsets, Waspies and Tops

Blue Brocade Corset 1Blue Brocade Corset 2


GORGEOUS Blue Brocade Corset. 24", and I have a feeling it's a Versatile Fashions corset due to the fact that I've that's virtually identical one in black satin - but I can't be sure as the label has been removed. I CAN be sure it's lovely quality, has been worn (by me) three times (with liner tops underneath). Two layers (lined in black), waist tape, modesty panel front and back. It also has 8 suspender loops. I adore this corset but it's slightly too small for me and it needs to be treated to all kinds of wonderful evenings, out or in!
Asking £75 all in.
SOLD



Blue Satin Waspie 1Blue Satin Waspie 2


Pretty pale blue waspie from Curvessence - it's not really for proper cinching but would give you a lovely shape and it IS boned. Ever so pretty. 23" approximately. Two layers (lined in black). Boning chanels have been covered on the inside in satin. I'd not part with this but I never wear it as it's not my colours.
Asking £45 all in.



Red Leather Waspie 1Red Leather Waspie 2


Red leather waspie from Target. Marked up as a 'M' for medium, approximately 25" but not for proper cinching and tight lacing - just gives a little shape. This has a black mark on the back which is quite faint but only fair to mention. It also has a few scuff marks on the front, which you don't easily notice when it's on but again, only fair to mention. The website has these at $39.95 (page 2 of the corsets, 4th one down I think, 0022).
Asking £15 all in due to small issues as mentioned above.




Black Strapless Pleather Top 1Black Strapless Pleather Top 2


I love this one! Strapless top from TopShop in pleather (or rather, fake leather plasticy material if you want the long version). This looks rubbish on the model as she doesn't have enough chest to fill it. However, it looked very pretty on me when I was a petite 32DD slinky 8/10. Label says 10 so we're in agreement! It's very vampy with a short skirt, or a bit corset-ish with a longer one. I've worn it quite a bit but it's still in brilliant condition.
Asking £5 all in.
SOLD




Red Obi Top 1Red Obi Top 2

Another one which looks rubbish on the model. Partly because it needs ironed and partly because you can't see the lovely embroidery well on this piccy. VERY lightly boned. Label says 12. I reckon 10. Never been worn by me - and I've no recollection where I got it from but it doesn't look like it can have been worn more than a couple of times though it's probably brand new. Label suggests its' from Tops.co.uk... which redirects to Topshop!

Skirts and Dresses

Black Mesh Skirt 1


Teeny tiny black mesh mini-skirt. I can't believe I actually used to have the cheek (in more way than one!) to wear this. Anyway, from Internacionale, label says size 14 but I reckon a 12 would be better. 28" inch waist unstreched, up to 32" inch waist very stretched. Solid fabric section is 11" in length at the shortest, just over 15" in length at the longest, skirt length is just over 16".
Asking £5 all in.




Black Textured Skirt 1


This was very tricky to get a good photo of. It's textured pvc, like it's been crinkled up and melted slightly but retained the shiny-ness. Another rather short one. Label says Miss Selfridge, size 10, and I think it's about right but would go up to a 12. 30" waist with no stretch. 14" in length.
Asking £4 all in




Black Pleather Skirt 1Black Pleather Skirt 2


This is quite cute. It has a little zip at one side so you can choose to show a little more (!) leg if you want to. Again with the how on earth did I ever wear these?!? It's a bit creased and I'm not sure if the mark from the coathanger at the top will come out but it likely will - I'm not about to melt this with an iron to try and get them out. 28" waist, 14" length. Label is New Look, size 10. I wore this lots, so I'm not wanting much for it but there's nothing wrong other than a slightly faded label.
Asking £4 all in




Black Velvet LBD 1Black Velvet LBD 2Black Velvet LBD 3


I LOVE this dress. It was a present from a friend a few years back and I've worn it twice. Difficult to photograph as it's velvet and mesh. Size 10 or a curvy 8. Label says 18.AUG with no size anywhere. The dress has weird chenille like tassle things hanging from the sleeves and skirt bottom and some of these have pulled (I wear lots of silly jewellery) so it needs a dab hand with a needle and thread before it's next outing. However, it's in great condition, that aside. Hellish to measure so I haven't - shout if you want any taken. It looks like it cost a fortune!
Asking £7.50 all in due to clicks on the edging as mentioned above

Bags and Belts

A4 Gray Leather Bag


Gift that although a lovely sentiment, isn't quite me. It's a leather handbag, will fit an A4 pad of paper easily, has lots of pockets... but it's gray. I don't do gray. I was bought it with the suggestion that I try to dye it black but I've zero confidence that I could do that. No idea what it cost but it's new without tags. The leather is lovely and soft and it would work the whole 80s thing quite well.
Asking £8 all in
SOLD




Black and Sequin Clutch Bag


This is cute. The strap is attached on the inside with poppers/studs so you can use it as a clutch bag or shoulder bag. It's WAY too small for me, and has been used once if that. Not sure I bought it new or not though. Great if you're a lippy, cash card, key and phone kind of girl. I'm not. Pleather with sequins and jewels on it.
Asking £3.50 all in




Small 70s Disco Bag


I have NO recollection of this one. The strap is quite long and unusual and the front is like a crazy silver 70s Disco meets Deco style. Again, far too small for me - you'd get your lippy, your cash card, your key and a small phone it it max. It's patent and as a result of being behind other bags and belts, it's a little scuffed. However, it'll be heavy to post due to the chain so...
Asking £4.50 all in




Small Pleather Bag


This is a mini-version of my favourite bag. Which is probably why I got it. Still, too small. You'd get a few more bits of make-up in this and room for your purse! Pleather again I think.
Asking £4 all in




Black Canvas Emily Belt


There was, very briefly a few years ago, a shop in Birmingham which sold all kinds of goodies that I loved. I got this Emily Strange belt there. It's actually black canvas with a silver buckle and an enamel Emily (she's not blurred!). As you can see from the photo, the end of the canvas has been covered in a metal tip with 'Emily' written on it. Not my style at all but I'm an Emily sucker.
Asking £5 all in
SOLD

Jewellery

Black and Multi Teardrop Necklace 1Black and Multi Teardrop Necklace 2


I bought this for the necklace which is ribbon and thong. The pendant is plastic and quite odd but pretty but not me. Aurora Borealis crystals on this one. NO idea where I got it or what it cost but I know what I was going to do with it and I won't.
Asking £2.50 all in




Pink Butterfly Necklace 1Pink Butterfly Necklace 2


HUGE butterfly choker. The extender chain will drop it down a little but it's meant to be worn up on your collar bone. Bronze coloured with pink crystals. About 4" wide and 2" deep. Quite heavy so...
Asking £4.50 all in
SOLD




Silver Fork Bracelet


Very lovely silver fork recycled into a bracelet. My Mum commissioned it for me as the one I had originally died on me after years of daily wear (I actually cried when it broke!). However, as lovely as it is, it's not the same. It's too big for me and it's just not as comfortable as the original one was. As it's sat gathering dust, one of you may as well benefit. It's roughly 8" with a 1" gap to get it over your wrist. You could get it adjusted slightly if you needed to. It's in gift giving condition. I've seen them for sale at £20 - £30 over at The Hairy Growler.
Asking £25 all in. It'll be heavy to post so I can't justify any lower on this really
DECIDED NOT TO SELL




Gray and Multi Necklace


This one was tucked into one of the bags and I've no idea where I got it. It's in shades of gray and silver. Largely pastic beads but the large pendant at the bottom is made of shell - painted silvers and grays on one side and then natural pearly white on the reverse. I don't think it's meant to be reversible but you could wear it either way. Pendant is just over 2", not including the bead dangles which are 3" long. Necklace part is 18" - 21.5" approx.
Asking £2.50 all in

Random Stuff

Casino Royale Playing Cards


Any Casino Royale fans out there who need a pack of playing cards? Still sealed, these were a promotional thing that I managed to get somehow. Heavyish to post so...
Asking £2 all in


Prices are a guide-line, all include PayPal fees and second class post within the UK. The corsets are more because I'll only send them Recorded at the very least (plus, they're corsets and are worth it!).

Feel free to haggle but be aware that I'm in need of cash (we have a MAC store opening in Cambridge and I'm hoping to do November Whitby....) and I won't trade. I'll consider deals on multiple buys, can meet in Cambridge for cash but I won't accept anything other than PayPal if we're doing post... it covers me and you if there's a problem.

No returns unless there is something horrendously wrong with your item but I'll being exceedingly accurate in descriptions of any faults I spot - please ask for measurements etc if you want them and they aren't supplied.

I can only post out items each Saturday. I don't work near a post office and can't get to one during the week because I work full time. Sorry! Oh, and last thing, I recycle packaging. A) to save the planet, B) to save on costs which makes this cheaper for you to buy.

All measurements taken are on the outside of clothing, unstretched unless otherwise stated. Photos are taken on a model who has a 33" bust (she's roughly a B cup), 24" waist and 35" hips for reference. Though clearly, she has no 'give'.

SO, any takers?
