I have a few auctions up on ebay for shoes and accessories that I thought I would mention.

First is a Dooney & Bourke checkbook wallet

It is forest green with brown trim in the signature all weather leather. This wallet is in MINT condition and is a classic!

There is a pair of Black leather sling backs in size 12W. They are BRAND NEW. They have a pointed toe and a small bow detail on top with gold accents.

Also up is a great pair of red Italian pumpsThey are size 12W and lace-up at the ankle- very attractive!

Finally, I have a NEW pair of silver and clear sling back heels up for auction! They are great for prom, any formal event or with a cocktail dress. They are size 12, also.

Check it out! Thanks!
