Next up is my Sandy dress from TrashyDiva!

As with all TD dresses this is a beautiful piece of clothing. I somehow didn't get around wearing this that much, very little in fact due to a lack of occasions. This one deserves more late summer parties and tiki drinks!
In other words it is still in very good condition.

The fabric is rayon with a soft and cool feel.
The dress has hidden p-o-c-k-e-t-s!  There is an invisible zipper in the side. As with most TD dresses the zipper can be a bit tricky in the waist; the waist is lined for a good fit but that makes it hard to close the zip over the seam. (Grab the fabric above to keep it straight and it will close smoothly.)

Here worn with bows tied around the neckline (and bra, to keep the straps from showing) for a variation.

This is a size 8. Measurements from the TD site for the dress are:
bust up to  39,5" (approx. 100cm)
waist up to 28,5"(72,5cm).
The hip measurement is free.
The skirt hits me just beneath the knee, the length is 65 cm.

I have worn this after childbirth and my waist is nowadays no longer a 28" or 28,5.... I wore it last summer when my measurement was something around 75-76cm, and it still fit. But it does not stretch so if you are any bigger than that it will most likely be to small. If you are a few cm smaller, say 68-70cm around the waist, it won't matter but will still look good. The same goes for the bust; it can fit a large bust but that is not a problem for smaller cups (like me).

This dress is no longer available on the TD site in any other sizes than a tiny 2 and 4 .

Price 40 euros.
Postage & packing to Finland 5 euros, Europe 8 euros and everywhere else 10 euros.



My Vivien of Holloway blue jeans are up for grabs!

They are sadly too big for me. (I got them straight after having Dag when 10 kg heavier than now... I was planning to get a smaller pair but now I see they are marked as "end of line" and my size is no longer available. Damn!) I love how they can work both as very casual with boots as saucy with heels.

These are very little used, about three times only and thus in excellent condition.

(pic from the VoH site)

The size is a VoH 16, waist 30 " and hip 42". They run somewhat large as they will give with wear.
You can read more about the jeans at their product page. Blue denim with white stitching. Very comfy on.

They are 75£ on the VoH site (about 89 euros). I'm selling mine for 50 euros.

Packing & post 5euros for Finland, 8€ for Euroe and 10€ to anywhere else.
(If you prefer 1st class or insured we can check that separately)

This shirt started out as a shirt dress but turned out much nicer as a shirt instead once I cut off the dress part. It's a cool shirt from the time when Sailor Jerry stil had lost of nice items for women. I like it a lot but I will never be as thin as in the picture again and even then it stretched a bit over my bust (as you can see) so ladies, it's up for grabs!

The sleeves are about 3/4 sleeves. It fastens with these nice clip (are they called so? you know, you press both sides together) buttons.

The material is 65% polyester and 35%, nice and soft with a hint of elasticity (very little though).

I will be lazy and not measure this, but the size is S, about eur 34/36; it's rather small.

As the quality is good and it is still in good condition and the SJ stuff is quite expensive I will ask
25 euros for it.

It's light however and easy to pack so post & proper packing is here mentioned in 1st class:
Finland: 2,90
Europe: 3,80eur
Everywhere else: 7,30 eur



This one's gotta go I'm afraid!

You can find the product info for this dress on the Tara Starlet site.
This exact colour is however no longer available.

The dress has pockets, which is always a big plus in my opinion. The pockets have a flower embrodiery. It closes with hidden zipper in the side. The belt can be worn tied in front, or then pulled back at the loops and tied in the back for a more snug fit. The buttons are shaped like flowers.

I am not 100% sure of the exact composition of the fabric, but it's some sort of cotton blend. It is soft and has a nice fall to it (the ones available on the site right now seem to be more of a crisp cotton/poly blend or so). The fabric provides a little stretch, so this is a comfy dress.

The dress is somewhat used (not that much, otherwise there'd be more photos of me wearint it, I only had this one post :) I had it on me as a guest on TV btw. Yey, extra points! Haha. ) but in a generally good condition. Price for a new dress is 75 GBP.

Size: 12
Actual measurements (from the Tara Starlet site, in INCHES):
Bust - 38
Waist - 29
Hip - 38
Skirt lenght form waist down : 24" (61cm)
You will be able to fit this with a bigger hip (mine is 40), no prob!

Price : 35 euros
Post  & Proper packing :
Finland - 5,30eur
Europe -  7,70eur
Everywhere else - 9,30eur
Prices are for 2nd class mail as the dress is pretty heavy (500gr).



I love this one! Love love love!

But, as with most other things that end up here, I have not worn it enough. IN fact, only abouyt 2-3 times... I always wanted to wait to get my legs back in to shape to be able to wear it without tights but now with childbirth coming up I might as well just let it go :)

The romper came with a tiny little stitch keeping the bust line more modest. I have opened the stitch as it stretched a bit over my bust. I wore it with a top underneath instead. You can easily stitch it back together if you prefer, but the fabric does fall nicer now that opened.

The romper has a hidden zipper in the back. The golden buttons in front are just for decorative use.
It has pockets on the side. Oh, pockets! Now I'm starting to re-consider selling, what if I loose a lot of weight when breastfeeding and my legs go all slim and slender again (haha, good one!)

It has a very nice fit! It will also look nice less tight, on somebody smaller than me. Mind that my hips and behind are rather large, the legs will take on a more skirt-like look on a slimmer body shape.

The brand is Peppermint, ordered from ModCloth about a year and a half ago.
Style it like I did with coloured or nude tights and high heels. Or a black beret and black ballerinas and a floppy, slightly longer cardigan for a more artsy look. Just to name a few.

Close up on the pattern. This is taken with the phone in sharp light, the colour is a bit softer in real life.

Label says hand wash.

Handmade Hawaiian themed blouse in mint green, gray  and wine red by Finnish seamstress Sweet Sue.

I've hardly ever worn this (as in only once, and no photos of that occasion) - it was just too... flowery for me. Don't get me wrong, I love Hawaiian prints! But for some reason I still didn't get around to wear it. Mainly since it's always been a bit on the smaller side for me; I have rather broad shoulders and my ribs wear in the way of being able to easily tie this in the waist. A pity, itäs an otherwise nice retro fit on it!

The material is cotton or a cotton blend, not sure. It has a firm vintage-y feel to it, but is still rather light, like seersucker or with a feel of linen. The buttons are vintage.

Size : ordered as M, but that would be a rather small medium. Comparable to an Eur 36

Measurements, taken flat:
Lenght - 46cm
Shoulder to shoulder - 41,5cm
Bust - 44cm
Waist - 39cm

Price : 15 euros

Keep your eyes open - I will have to let some more items go due to the lack of space, which will only grow bigger once ze baby comes along. As soon as I have the time I will put a few pieces up for sale, my BBBB strawberry wrap blouse, the Mod Cloth 40's inspired romper... and more!

Until them, have a nice weekend <3

I wouldn't have believed it, but it has now come to this...
I am selling away my Vivien of Holloway circle dress. Sigh.

I totally love it and the whole idea of it, but turns out I have only worn it properly only twice.
I will wash it for the first time now before sending it away.

The dress is a VoH 14 and the measurements for this dress, taken from the VoH site, are:
Waist - 28 inches
Bust - 36 inches
Hip - free
The skirt is 27 inches.

The top is boned for a great fit.
The dress is all-cotton gingham and fastens with a zipper in the back. There are daisies printed on the fabric.

The bolero is size S, runs somewhat large; fits my EUR 38 frame well.

It's made of a nice, firm stretch cotton blend; 50% cotton and 50% polyester.

Price : 55 euros
With the bolero : 65 euros

(the belt and petticoat in the pictures are not incuded)

Link to similar VoH dresses here.
Price for a new dress is £69-79 and £89 with bolero (about 79-90 and 100 euros).

Postage & packing should be €5,80 to Finland, €8 within EU and €10,50 everywhere else.

(Prices are for a so called Maxi Letter as the kisrt has a lto of fabric and takes a lof ot place. If I manage to pack it small enough to be able to send as a letter it will be a bit less; I will refund the rest in that case. )

I might still change my mid so hurry up :)

OK; hands down, I LOVE THESE! Love love love. But they are too big for me and won't stay properly on. I actually bought the smaller ones first but they again were too small. Alas, these were not meant to be... Otherwise they'd be pretty comfy as the heel is firm and there is a hidden platform. These are from H&M a couple of years back. My most comfy shoes, the red ones that are wearing out totally after five years are actually form H&M!

Size : EUR 38 / US 7
Sole / Hidden platform: 2cm
Heel : 10cm
They are about 24cm long.

The sole and heel is plastic and the kind of tweed like with golden lurex thread interlaced.

I have worn these only a couple of times; the condition is very good.

Price : 20 euros

Shipping + packing will be about 9euros within Europe and about 13euros everywhere else.



(ahum, it is not ironed)

You may remember this skirt from a few years back; a Gina Tricot red and white skirt that I coloured into something of a 'steelish' grey blue and raspberry. It is pretty hard to capture to colours on photo, but they are kind of matte and gives a vintage feel. The seams are white. It is a circle skirt made out of four pieces.

The skirt fastens with a zipper and three white buttons in the side or back (depends on how you want it).

I am only selling this skirt due to a sudden urge to lighten my wardrobe; I love this one!
But as I have not worn it in quite some time it has to go.
Oh, the cruelness of the world.

Material : 100% Cotton, no stretch. Can be machine washed.
Size : 36

Measurements; actual:
Waist : 71 cm
Hip: any
Lenght: 70cm

The waisband is 7cm high.

Condition : worn, but over all good

Price : 13 euros

Shipping+packing is about 5€ withing Europe and about 7€ anywhere else!



I'm selling away my Tara Starlet 40's shirt dres!

I got one size smaller than usual due to the fact my own size was sold out which resulted in me not wearing it more than just a couple of times, it was a little bit too tight to feel totally comfortable in. I have broad shouldrs and that was the problem.

I haven't had the heart to sell it before as I really adore everything about it especially the pattern combined with the black and white gingham trim and matching belt. The dress is no longer available at Tara Starlet. If you're like me (see the sidebar for details) or up to two sizes smaller this should fit you as you can chinch in the belt and this dress will look good, better actually if not skin tight.

Size : Tara Starlet 10/M, resembles EUR 36
Material : 100% cotton with a nice crisp feel.
Condition : as good as new!

Dress measured flat (in cm)
Shoulders hem-hem : 40
Bust: 43
Waist : 36
Hip : approx. 43cm; prettu much free
Length : 93

The dress has buttons in front and fastens with a hidden zip in the side. The shoulders have mini paddings.

Price : 35 euros

Shipping will be around 5€ for Europe and 7€ everywhere else.

You know one should never buy clothing that is a little bit too small, if one ever really wants to use it...
I've had this skirt only once, but it is unfortunately too small for me in the waist to be able to wear comfortably.
It is pretty however so it's a shame!

The skirt has an attached belt in the waist and an musical note embroidery on the right side.
Brand is Tara Starlet.

Measurements, actual:
waist: 70-71cm
Hip: free
Length : 70cm

Material : 100% heavy cotton (no stretch), plastic belt buckle.

Zip- and button fastening in the back.

The skirt has only been worn once! It has had a little accident however, a small cut in the fabric in the waist band (about 4 cm) just in front.
I have fixed it with a black zig zag seam. It is behind the belt buckle so it won't show or notice, I couldn't really get a proper photo of it either.

Price : 25 euros

Shipping & packing costs will be about 5€ inside Europe and about 7€ everywhere else.



Vintage green sheer dress with black lace. It has a small tag that says SILO and size 40 - well, I would've said 36.

I adore this dress, but personally I prefer dresses that are slightly longer. I was planning to add some lace or whatever to the hem to make it longer, but as that has not happened during those three years I've had this dress, I've just decided to let it go - I'm sure someone else will enjoy this more! I am a few kilos more, eh, voluptuous now than when that picture was taken and it still fits me, although it is more tight now. But it does make the body look beautiful! IN other words, if you are smaller than me it will still look nice as this dress does not have to be skin tight.

Material : chiffon like, soft feel, most likely polyester. No stretch.

Measurements, flat:
Lenght (shoulder to hem): 87cm
Bust : 43cm
Waist: 36cm
Hips: 47

Conditon: used, without flaws.
I repaired part of the lower hem when I bought it, my stitches are not that even but they only show on the inside.

(My measurements in inches are around 36-28-40, sometimes a bit more, so around those or anything smaller will fit at least :)

Price : 25 euros

Shipping & packing costs will be about 5€ within Europe and 7€ everywhere else.



This bone white skirt is big and puffy, although not a full circle skirt. It has pleats a bit wodn from the the waist for a beautiful hemline and a slightly slimmer look upwards. It is a tiny little bit too big for me in the waist, but I've chinced it in with a belt; the skirt has two belt loops in front. Zipper and button loop fastening in the side.

The brand is Jackpot. The quality is good (retail price was around 80 euros).

Size : 32. The sizing is generous, as I am normally a EUR 36 or 38.
(I think it is perhaps meant to be worn lower on the hip, but I keep it high waisted, thus the small size.)

Measurements; taken flat, please compare with a garment of your own:
Lengt: 63cm
Waist: 36cm
Hip: 13cm below the waist; 47, the lower hip is is free.

Material : 100% heavy cotton. No stretch.

The skirt has only been used about 4-5 times; I will wash it now for the first time before selling it.

Shipping and packing costs will be approx. 5€ within Europe and 7€ everywhere else.

Price : 18 euros

Black What Katie Did Maitresse bullet bra size 36C, unused, and black WKD Maitresse gridlette in sz.14, moderately used. To be bouthg together or separately.

Also in this case I plan to buy a new, similar set in the right size as these are a tiny bit too big for me.

Find info and sizing about the bra here.

For info and sizing about the girdlette, click here.

Shipping + packing for the items sold separately will be approx. €4 inside Europe and €5 elsewhere.
If bought together the price will be around 5 and 6 euros. I will of course specify the price before payment is made then when I know where to send them :)

I will sell the bra for €20.

I will sell the girdle for €17SOLD

Bought together, 35 euros.



I'm selling this waist cincher in peach from What Katie Did since it's too big for me. I've only used it a couple of times and it has been washed only once (hand wash of course) before selling. I was thinking of selling this for a "fixed price" instead of auctioning it. Leave a comment if you are interested!

The size is 14. Note that WKD has it's own sizing that does not match high street.

Please have a look at the size chart on their site for info and more details in general.

Personally I think the size chart is slightly on the more generous side as I should have ordered one size smaller.

This is a great piece of lingerie and I will order a new one in my size for sure.

I will sell it for €25 + shipping.
Shipping and packing will be approx. €5 inside Europe and about €7 elsewhere.

I'm selling away the booties I revamped last winter! Their soft texture can't really take the salted soggy streets of climate change warmed Helsinki I'm afraid, and keeping them just in case this winter has a slight percentage of being a dry one seems like a pity since they'd most likely remain unworn. (This is of course coming from a person who has a closet and hall filled with shoes shoes shoes who nowadays has to be over-rational, so my fellow Finnish girls: of course you can give these a shot! ) The shoes can take up to a few degrees C below zero, but avoid wearing them when raining. I have sprayed them with protection spray last year.

Size : 37 on the bigger side, length from heel to toe is ~24 cm
Heel : 7,5 cm
Material : suede imitation, man made

The booties are actually quite comfy even though the heel is thin. They are only used a couple of times, the edge of the heels shows some sign of usage from walking around but are otherwise in a real nice condition. The bows are sewn on to small safety pins that are well hidden and won't fall off. I'm wearing them in this picture if you want to see how they look on the foot.

Price : € 18 or highest bid.
Raise your bid with min.1 €. I'll keep this open until Sunday Dec 13th.

To Finland : € 9,10 (Maxi-kirjeen ei voi lähettää kuin ykkösluokana suomen sisällä! Höh. Joten terveetuloa myös noutamaan :)
Europe: € 10, 43 / 8,90 for first or second class
Elsewhere : € 10,55 / 15,52 for first or second class

This one-of-a-kind dress always made me think of Carrie in Sex and the City...
I love it, but I don't feel it's really me anymore.

Label : Reko Design
Size : one size

Measurements (taken FLAT)
Length: 73 cm
Bust : 31 cm, stretches to at least 45cm
Waist : 30 - 49cm
Hip : free

Material : 100 % Cotton, handwash

Price : 30€
If you bid raise your bid by min. 2€/bid

This is a hand sewn dress out of vintage fabric by Reko Design London. There's no exact same dress like this one out there and I I've always got tons of reaction when I've worn it! It shows some signs of usage but is still in good condition.



This is a funny but still stylish black cocktail dress. I wanted this one badly for a James Bond party last year but couldn't find it in my size - this one was a bit too big for me so I have only worn it once!

Label : H&M
Size : 40

Measurements (all taken flat across garment)
Length : 74 cm
Bust : 44 cm
Waist : 37 cm
Hip 49 cm

98% cotton, 2% Elastane
Machine washable (40C)

Price : 15€
If you bid the minimum raise is 1€
Auction open until Fri Sept.4th!

The dress has a frock in the back so it will stretch and give a good fit. It is slightly tulip shaped, giving some room for the hips. It has practical pockets in the side. The fabric is black but woven into a striped texture to resemble suit fabric. It has a zipper and hidden button in the side. (Spare buttons still attached inside of dress). The buttons in the front are decorative and will not open. The shoulder straps are adjustable. Someone slightly bigger than me will fill this dress out nicely, but a smaller girl could of course wear it in another puffier way, perhaps adding a thick belt to the waist or so...
