Vintage Means Vintage
All items are vintage unless otherwise stated so please do not expect them to be in NEW condition.Our items have had a past life so will almost always show some degree of wear. That being said, we are committed to providing excellent, quality vintage garments. Every item is inspected thoroughly and any major faults will be noted in the item description. We can only accept returns if the item was grossly misrepresented. We check numerous times for flaws to ensure this doesn’t occur.
All our vintage items are ONE OF A KIND pieces. We WISH we had multiple runs but that would destroy the individuality of the garment. Each item is a handpicked for its uniqueness so if you like what you see and the fit is right buy before someone else does.
We try our best to date each item according to its era but sometimes there is a little guess work involved. If you are unsure of an item or are querying an era please email us via the CONTACT US section of the website.
We recommend that our customers wash or dry clean all items before wearing.

Sizing & Measurements
All measurements are flat on the ground across front side ONLY (unless otherwise stated). Garments are measured carefully and we give our best fit guide in today’s sizing. Vintage sizing tends to run a little smaller that current sizing so checking measurements is essential. Sometimes items can be pinned to fit our models to show details so once again, please ENSURE you refer to our measurements for final sizing information. You may also need to factor in fabric & garment types (stretch, smock style) when determining a good fit. If you have any concerns at all re sizing please email us via the CONTACT US section prior to buying.
We understand that sometimes it can be hard to gauge fit from measurements alone so here’s a hot tip from us to you: Find a similar item in your wardrobe that fits you well. Lay it flat on the ground and measure straight across bust, waist and hips. Most of the time our measurements will be taken FLAT across the front of the garment only. If measurements are for the circumference of the garment they will just need to be doubled. Compare your measurements with those on the garment description. Wala! A match? Snap it up!
