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
