Is this in my size?
Frankly, we don't know. With a 26" waist, you might wear a Target dress size 4, but a designer Valentino dress size 10. The modern "vanity sizing" you see in most stores does not correlate to high end designer sizing, especially when you start to look back in time!
Luckily, if you have a measuring tape, we've made it easy for you to find out in the most precise way possible if you will fit into the garments in our store! Just visit our Measuring & Fit Guide.
Do you offer Layaway?
Yes! We offer a non-refundable layaway program that requires a 20% down payment with the remainder of the balance divided anywhere between 2 and 6 months. Please contact us if you are interested in putting something on layaway.
Do you have a physical shop I can visit?
Yes! In 2017 we opened our appointment-only studio space in Portland, OR. Contact us for information about setting up an appointment.
Join our mailing list for updates on our participation in vintage shows around the country, future pop-up shops, and events in our studio!
I'm getting married, can you help me find a vintage wedding dress and dresses for my entire wedding party?
Yes! We absolutely love weddings! Just tell us what you are dreaming of and we can try to make it become a reality. Take a look at our Wedding Dress collection for some of our available vintage wedding gowns, but if you don't see it there, feel free to contact us with your specific dress vision (we have tons of unlisted inventory -- including wedding dresses!).
We can help everyone from the bride to the mother of the bride look amazing on that special day. We also do wedding styling and try whenever at all possible to use sustainable, ethical decor.
I need a certain color of dress and I think I've found it on your site but the color looks different on the different monitors I've seen it on - is there a way to know exactly what color it is?
We have the full book of Pantone colors, so we can find the exact match on any particular garment. Or, if you can find the Pantone equivalent to the specific color you need, we can help you find a garment in the exact shade.
I am looking for a vintage dress for a black tie event - do you have other dresses in your inventory that are not online that I might be able to see?
We have a huge inventory and can't put it all online at once, so it is always good to email us if you are looking for something special. Please include images from the web of dresses you like, your size, color preferences and the date of the event. We buy estates of clothing regularly so even if we don't have it in our current stock, it might be our next great find!
What's the difference between "good" and "excellent" condition?
See our Condition Notes page.
Why do vintage clothing prices differ so much online?
Shopping online can be very confusing! You need to look at the unique aspects of the piece, the designer, the quality and most importantly, the condition (view our Condition Notes page). Vintage clothing has everything to do with condition and quality.
Most of us who have been doing this for many years, have become more and more discriminate about condition and the pieces we add to our inventory so the prices might seem much higher, but they reflect a more selective collection of finer, rarer, or more collectible garments.
