We offer a large selection of designers and manufacturers that span the 20th and early 21st century. Sizing varies greatly, so we have outlined our measuring and size estimating process.
The best way to know if a vintage item will fit you is to take a garment that fits you well, similar to the one you are interested in purchasing, and measure it the way we measure ours.
We lay all garments flat and measure as follows*:
BUST - under arm to under arm across the front and then double that measurement.
Measure the WAISTBAND, widest part of the HIPS, widest part of the THIGH on one leg and width of the CUFF, then double those measurements
WAIST - find the smallest part of the garment if there isn't an obvious seam for the waist and measure across and then double that measurement.
LENGTH - Measure from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the cuff along the side seam.
HIPS - Find the largest part of the hip area and measure flat, then double that measurement.
RISE - Measure from the crotch to the top of the waistband.
LENGTH - from the nape of the neck or the top of the shoulders, depending on the style of garment. We will measure to the waist when applicable, so that you can determine if it will fit your torso, and then a waist down measurement.
INSEAM - Measure from the crotch to the bottom of the cuff along the inside seam.
SLEEVES - measure from the top of the shoulder seam to the end of the sleeve. When we think that the arm opening is particularly small, we will provide that measurement as well.**
*Fabrics with stretch will have some give, we will try to mention the range of measurements that will fit comfortably.
**With dolman sleeves, the size is an estimation based on the waist as the body seamlessly joins the sleeve.
Feel free to email us with specific questions about specific measurements that we may not have included that you need to know in order to feel confident about your purchase. If you have a particularly long torso, short legs, long arms, etc.. we can help you determine whether or not a garment will work for your body.SaveSaveSave
This is one of the most unique vintage Yves Saint Laurent pieces we've seen! The necklace was a limited edition by Robert Goossens and we think it looks like chunky pieces of broken dark gunmetal grey geodes. The necklace is set on gold plated ovals. We have seen similar style necklaces made with crystals for YSL, but this one is truly unique!
The end of the chain has a small round gold branded YSL tag and a faceted geometric sphere.
If you love vintage jewelry, you should own a piece or several pieces of Yves Saint Laurent jewelry! Yves Saint Laurent collaborated with some of the world's finest jewelry designers and this necklace was by Robert Goossens. Goossens previously worked with Coco Chanel, Madame Gres and Mark Bohen for Dior. YSL also collaborated with Loulou de la Falaise, Gripoix, and Roger Scemama. He started to work with YSL In the mid 1970's.
Very good condition - some wear to patina and a couple of small "dents" in metal on back - not visible when worn.
The length is adjustable from choker to collar length because the hook closure can be inserted into any of the chain links.
INDIVIDUAL OVAL HEIGHT: 1 1/2"
INDIVIDUAL OVAL WIDTH: 1"
