BlixaMix: New Listings


I finally put these up! About a decade ago, I went to Paris for the first time and I was determined to buy a pair my first pair of Louboutins. On a rainy day, I went to the cute little boutique tucked away on Rue de Grenelle and I was the only customer in there. These patent tortoiseshell Very Privé pumps were the only ones I liked and could semi-realistically afford but they only had a size 35 (I'm a 35.5). I walked around the red carpetted store hemming and hawing while the cute little French girl ambivalently watched me, and I decided to bite the bullet, because, why not? €595 wasn't that much.

I eventually met up with my parents and proceeded to lug around these shoes in Louboutin's signature beige paper bag around every tourist attraction in the city: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louis Vuitton flagship store on the Champs Elysées. 

Of course when I got back to Canada, I knew in my heart that they were too small, and they sat on a shelf for 9 and a half years. I gave them to my mom but she doesn't wear heels so she gave them back to me. Now, I hope they will go to a good home as they deserve to be worn in public. I might not have these shoes anymore but I have a million vacation photos of me happily carrying a Louboutin bag that will always be a reminder of my impetuous youth and stupidity!

BNIB CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN "Very Privé" pumps in size 35. For sale here.

These belonged to my mom. She wore them once.

KORS Michael Kors red Nappa "Erin" flats w/ patent cap toe, size 6.5. For sale here.

Worn once. They say 7M but they definitely fit small. They almost fit my 5.5 feet!

NWOB Twelfth St. By CYNTHIA VINCENT embroidered "Sage" flat, size 7. For sale here.

Love these flats. Wish they were my size.

I couldn't get mine to look like the stock photo, but I tried!

Very large and reversible

Aritzia WILFRED fit and flare "Tartine" dress, size 6/8. For sale here.

Aritzia WILFRED cotton crepe w/ silk dress, size 4. For sale here.

TED BAKER silk crepe kimono sleeve blouse, size 4. For sale here. Bralette also for sale.

I love this blouse which is probably why I priced it a little higher than I normally would for a blouse. A part of me wants to keep it.  UPDATE: I kept it!

NWOT Aritzia WILFRED stretch silk "Mysterieux" bralette, size S. For sale here.

I bought this new but it's just too small on me.

CLUB MONACO silk strapless top, size M. For sale here.

Aritzia TNA "Pacific" hoodie, size S. For sale here.

LULULEMON "Energy" bra, size 8. For sale here

LULULEMON "Flow Y" bra, size 6. For sale here.

7 FOR ALL MANKIND distressed "Dojo" flare jeans, size 26. For sale here.

And lastly, I'm selling this for a friend because she got it from her aunt as a Christmas present in a family secret Santa draw even though she specifically told her aunt she wanted a Tim Horton's gift card, to which her aunt had agreed. But her aunt took it upon herself to buy my friend a jacket in the US - completely not her style - and rip the tags off because, "Hey, you live in Canada, why would you ever need to return it?" even though my friend goes to the States ALL THE TIME.

NWOT JENNIFER LOPEZ faux-suede, faux-shearling moto jacket, size 6. For sale here.

Tag says 8 but it definitely fits small.

That's all folks! I'll be listing some more stuff later in the week!
