Closet Sale: Dresses and Swimwear.

Hey, all.  After saying I was going to hold a closet sale for the last year, I have finally gotten around to it.  I am so freaking slow.  This will be a multi-week thing, starting today with some summer dresses (one or two year-round dresses on here, too) and some swimwear.  I have a gazillion other things to sell including skirts, shorts, winter dresses, coats, jackets, shoes, etc., but this seemed as good a place as any to start.

The prices are pretty good (between $10 and $35), I keep them low because I just want to get them out of my closet and into a closet of someone who will actually wear them.  :-) 

Shipping is extra (about $5 for most of the United States), but if you buy three items or more, I will comp shipping (unless you are in Canada or Europe, then I will give you a $5 discount on your shipping).

I can only ship to the US, its territories, its military bases, and Canada and Europe.  It is too difficult to ship elsewhere, unfortunately.

You can email me at dinagideon AT aim DOT com to find out more/express interest, etc.  I will answer as quickly as I can, but I am not always right there on my computer, so know that I will get back, and that I will give the item to whomever expresses interest first. 

Thanks for looking! 

Newquay Dress. Size 6 Long.  From Boden Spring 2013.  That's navy striping, not black. Worn here by me. $25. SALE PENDING.

Kristy Dress. Size Small. The dress is somewhere in color between the upper photo and the below photo.  Here it is on me. From J. Crew: Soft, midweight cotton interlock—a more substantial knit. Shift silhouette. Fitted. Boatneck. Short sleeves. Patch pockets. Hits at midthigh; 18" from natural waist. $15.

Jennifer Shirtdress. From J. Crew 2007.  This is black, so you know. ;-)  Worn here by me. $20. SOLD.

Printed Tunic. US 6 Regular. From Boden Spring 2010.  Worn here by me. $20.


Thicket Low Back Tank. Size 4 (runs wee compared to normal J. Crew swimwear). Has a black mark through tag, from clearance center.  Price reflects this. From J. Crew: One of our favorites—from the floral print to the delicate ruffle trim. J.Crew nylon/Lycra® spandex with a ruched band at front. Quick drying. Fade resistant. $15.

Sassy Silk Dress. Size 8 Regular. From Boden Spring 2011. Worn by me here. $30.

Ruffled Hem Jersey Dress. Size Small. From J. Crew Summer 2010.  Color is in-between the two images. Worn by me here. $10.

Factory cotton-silk shimmy dress. Size 8.  From J. Crew Factory. I misplaced the black belt (it was a length of black grosgrain ribbon, so easy to make yourself).  I adjusted the price down to make up form the lack of the belt (still has slip, though). $15. SOLD.

Lyric/Drift Dress. Size Extra-Small. From J. Crew Spring 2011. Definitely not as dark as my photo, but not quite as blue as the still shot.  Worn by me here with a cardigan. $15.

Sconset Dress. Size 8. From J. Crew Factory (second image is from the retail store not factory).  I shortened the straps by an inch (price is lowered for that reason), but I tucked them and sewed them versus cutting then sewing, so if you need to re-lengthen them, you can take the stitches out and have them back at their original length.  Worn by me here. $10.

Sleeveless Draped Knit Dress. Size Small. From Garnet Hill.  Color is definitely closer to the purple Edda is wearing in the model shot, but not the exact shade.  (It was hard to photograph some of the darker colors well.) Here I am wearing it. $20. SALE PENDING.

Starlet Knit Dress. Size Small. From Garnet Hill. I am giving up one of my beloved Startlet Knit dresses!  :-)  Seen on me here. $20. SALE PENDING.

Printed Dress. Size M (which I think is about a girls 13-14, or a size 4 in regular Boden). From Johnnie b, the juniors line at Boden. Worn by me here. $10.

Villa Dress. Size Small.  From J. Crew Spring 2012. Worn by me here in CA a few years ago. Between navy and black. (I loved wearing this dress, fwiw, I just am ready to let it go.) $20.

Fitted Ponte Dress. Size 8 Regular.  It is a bit rumply, but it has been folded in storage for a year after washing and line drying.  (It wears fine, though, since on the body it stretches out, but it can be ironed, too, obviously.)  Here it is on me. $25.

Lucille Dress. Both Size 8. J. Crew Spring 2012. Beautiful dresses, white is brand new with tags, I wore the purple a couple of times, including here.  As much as I love them, my pear shape does best when there is even more fullness to the skirt, and less fullness at top.  This worked better on my frame when I was postpartum and heavier, surprisingly. White--$35. Purple--$30.

Crossover swimsuit. Size US 4. Boden. Worn by me here.  Has been washed in machine with soap for sanity reasons, and line dried.  I don't recommend washing suits with soap and in the machine, though, on a regular basis, since it wears the suits down over time.  I usually just rinse with super cold water (maybe a little bit of mild soap)h and hang to dry after use. $15.

Liberty Board Shorts in Phoebe Floral.  Size 10. From J. Crew. I never wore these, as much as I wanted to, they were always just a bit too tight through the thighs and the crotch length and depth was not a good match for my frame.  I think they run small, tbh.  $20. SOLD.

Have a great day, you all!
