From Style Spy's Closet: Clothes

For inquiries on sizing, fabrics, details, specific measurements, or anything else, please feel free to contact me. (You can find my e-mail address in my profile here on the blog, or you can leave a comment after this post.) I can also provide more pictures if there's something you want to look at more closely. I'm somewhat flexible on the pricing for some things, so don't hesitate to drop me a line if you see something you like.

A.B.S. olive green/gold iridescent taffeta skirt with stitched-down pleats, attached sequined sash with bow, and green tulle underlayer. Absolutely adorable, this skirt will make you want to go dancing. Pairs beautifully with gold, ivory or burgundy. Size 6. Retailed for over $300; now $35.00, includes shipping.

Tessuto pink lace dress with full skirt, fitted bodice, spaghetti straps, grosgrain belt with bow. Fully lined. Absolutely adorable, and only worn once or twice. Would be perfect for prom. Size 8. Purchased at Neiman Marcus. Originally retailed for over $400, now $50.00, includes postage.

Really gorgeous, never worn Neiman Marcus brand bootcut black leather five-pocket jean. Bonded leather to resist bagging, lined to the knees, unhemmed. Really gorgeous pants, slick & sexy without being trashy. Size 12. Did I mention they'd never been worn? Retailed for over $400; now$60, includes postage.

Fantastic knit dress from BCBG. Beautiful brown & robin's egg blue colors, v-neck, self-belt that wraps around twice for extra waist definition. Size large. A really great dress that you can just throw on and look great in, then toss into the wash. What's better than that? $35, includes postage.

Very wonderful and beloved Anne Klein black gabardine car coat. I'm only getting rid of this because due to a major weight loss it is so big on me it looks like I'm a child playing dress-up. I absolutely LOVE this coat. Mid-weight, a topcoat for cool not cold weather. Fantastic easy-care poly gabardine with faux-leather trim at collars, cuffs, and around the pocket flaps. Trust me, you will wear this coat a lot. Still looks new, despite multiple cleanings. Please give this coat a good home so I don't feel bad about not wearing it anymore. Size large, which I reckon is a 10-12. $40, includes postage.

Really lovely silk chiffon Trina Turk tie-neck dress.

This is so beautiful. I have styled it with a black patent belt above, but it comes with a tie self-belt. No fastening other than the neck tie, it's a super-easy dress to wear.

This dress is a generous size 4, but it's too big for me, especially in the bust, and due to the way it's cut I simply cannot wear it. It's never been worn, actually, although I don't have the tags for it anymore. I think it would fit a size 4 with a larger bust than mine (which is almost anyone, I promise) or a size 6, maybe even an 8. There's room in the hips and the waistband is elasticized, so it expands. It has a delightful float to it -- the skirt is full enough to move without adding volume, and lighter than air. This is a great dress for spring & summer, but you can easily wear it into fall -- that neckline looks great under a blazer. Purchased at Neiman Marcus, this dress retailed for over $400. Now $60, includes postage.

Perfect day dress -- navy blue faux-wrap knit dress with a-line skirt and gold buttons on the epaulets. The shape & ease of a wrap dress without the worry of your skirt blowing open.

Inset waistband makes your midsection look teeny-tiny. I love this dress. It's been worn, but it's machine washable & still looks great.

Purchased at Nordstrom, IIRC. $25, includes postage. A bargain -- you will definitely get your money's worth from this dress.

Stay tuned, I'll be posting other things as I get the chance!
