Blog sale!

People keep asking me what I do with my finds so let me remind you why I named my blog, I'm a hoarder. I tend to keep my best finds for myself and my paying clients.

As a child I didn't have much so I tend to overcompensate now as an adult. Good thing I know how to do it on the cheap. I do like to think of myself as a relatively sane hoarder - with most of my collections neatly organized in bins and closets in my attic and basement. Sometimes things do get a little out of control but no more than any other household with three kids sans nanny/housekeeper. I grew up without a maid so even today it's hard for me to relinquish control when I know I can do a better job cleaning and organizing.

But I digress, most of my penny finds are given as gifts to family and friends. On occasion I do put a few things on eBay but that's really only to support my designer habit. I rarely mention it because for some reason people expect me to sell them my finds as cost, not factoring in my time and most importantly - this is how I contribute to my family's expenses. Many don't realize how modestly I live because I'll walk out of the house wearing a $2000+ outfit - not everyone knows that it cost me maybe 50 bucks head to toe :) I have a family of five living on a professor's salary in a metropolitan do the math.

So here are the goods! I think my pricing is pretty fair considering every time I sold my blog sale extras on eBay they usually got snapped up for 2-3x the price I listed here. Feel free to ask questions as needed. Prices are cheaper for local pickup. And FYI - nothing here was a penny LOL.

Tory Burch refurb black patent leather flats, size 7 - $95 US shipped.  I think due to the elastic backs these run on the small side and may not work for a wider foot.

JS Boutique size 6 NWT black beaded jersey gown, retail $180 - just $45 US shipped. One of the beads on the belt is a little loose and several beads on the shoulders are loose/missing - nothing too serious and can easily be stitched up.

Loose bead.

A few loose/missing beads.

SOLD NWT Adrianna Papell white sequin lace gown size 2, retail $298 - just $75 US shipped.  There are a few loose/missing beads, nothing serious. The sequins give it a richer ivory hue but the color is technically white.




I've had so much interest in these sz 39 Louboutin refurb espadrilles that I refuse to return them LOL - just $270 US shipped.

SOLD Tory Burch refurb snake print flats size 8.5, $95 US shipped.


SOLD NWT Gold Rebecca Minkoff Affair bag (retail $425) - just $90 US shipped. Bag has a few light marks/dents - see pics. Adjustable 35″ – 23″ chain and interwoven leather strap with 16″ – 9″ drop. Measures approximately 13″ at widest x 9″ tall at center x 3″ deep. Such a pretty bag.



  To give you a better idea of sizing -
Not this bag, just this size.

PENDING NWT Adrianna Papell size 16 black jersey 3/4 sleeve dress - $40 US shipped. Soft, jersey-knit Adrianna Papell dress is rouched throughout, lending a drapey look. Asymmetrical gathers decorate the empire waistline. Softly ruched round neckline. Half sleeves. Lined. Straight hemline. 100% polyester. Machine wash cold, dry flat.



 You can better see the details on the blue version (I only have the black) -

Adrianna Papell Long beaded gown, size 6, retail $368 - $90 US shipped. Decadent beading enhances the '20s vibe of this gorgeous V-neck gown that hugs the figure before flaring into a graceful floor-grazing skirt. Approx. 62" length. Back zip closure. Fully lined. 100% polyester. Spot clean. Several sequins/beads are loose/fell off but it comes with a small bag of sequins/beads so you can easily resew them. Dress color is a little darker than the stock pic IRL (like a nude peach). Stunning.

The is the only spot on the back of the dress with missing beads - the rest were on the front.

SOLD NWT Halston Hertiage size Medium (US 6/8) dress, retail $295 - just $55 US shipped. An alluring hue washes over this v-neck halter dress, and a tucked and twisted knot detail at the center front waist creates a strikingly feminine look. Concealed zipper at left side seam.

NWT Current/Elliott The Prep School shirt size 2 (US size 6/8), retail $248 - $45 US shipped.

PENDING NWT Mcginn Laura Frayed Edge knit dress size large (US 12-14 but would probably work better for an 8/10), retail $260 - $50 US shipped. Not a short as in the stock picture - more above the knee than mid thigh LOL. Very Chanel - I would keep it but I don't do well with chunkier knits over my behind. Sparks of metallic blue highlight a nubby knit dress textured with soft fraying that defines the flirty silhouette. Button-patch pockets. Approx. length from shoulder to hem: 39". Slip lining. Polyester/acrylic/wool/nylon; dry clean.

SOLD Has a slit in the back.

Happy shopping! LMK if anything catches your eye :)



  1. Hope you had a wonderful holiday, M!

    Was just thinking that I'd LOVE to see a post on how you organize your stuff, since you must have a lot of stuff. I need organizational tips! My current plan is "open closet door a crack, stuff item inside, hope it shuts."


    1. I'm actually still working on that. I moved into an older house (tiny closets) a couple years back and I really need to build me a closet room or floor for that matter LOL. I'll be sure to share when we finally do some construction :)
