FAQs & Condition
Clothing Measurements and Fit:
Unless stated otherwise, garment measurements were taken with the garment laid flat and doubled to reach the actual measurement. When comparing a garment's measurement to your own, please allow 1-2 inches for breathing room and proper fit. So, your body measurements need to be 1-2 inches smaller than the garment's.
A good way of determining if a garment will fit you is to take an item of clothing of your own that fits you well, lay it flat and measure it. Then compare those measurements to the measurements in the listing. If you have any other questions on fit or measurement, I'm more than happy to advise customers before a purchase.
Garment Condition and Cleaning:
When selecting items for the store I keep an eye out for holes, tears, popped seams, shrinkage, stains, underarm stains, pilling, previous alterations, fading, and odors, just to name a few, and try to avoid heavily damaged items. I do perform any necessary minor sewing repairs and cleaning before items reach the shop. Sweaters are shaved to remove pilling and leather shoes/purses are wiped down and vacuumed out. I do wash or dry clean all items possible, with the except of some leather goods and the occasional antique item that may be too delicate. I do mention if I have not washed a garment. I always mention any remaining flaws in the "Condition" section of each listing, that I did not/could not fix.
All items come from a smoke free facility. With vintage items, I do not necessarily know if any previous owners smoked, but I avoid items with smoke odors.
I recommend either dry cleaning or hand washing most washable vintage items. If you would like advice on cleaning vintage, I am more than happy to answer any questions and share any tips that I've come across over time.
International Shipping and VAT/customs Fees
Shipping covers shipping costs only and any customs fees, duties, or VAT that your country requires on your end are your responsibility. Each country varies and it is your responsibility to know your country's tax system. Also, I do not lie on customs forms. Please do not ask me to do so.
Computer monitors vary in color representation. Please keep this in mind if you are trying to do an exact color match.
Vintage items are often fragile nature, especially older items. I am not responsible for items damaged during wearing or improper washing. I am happy to offer advice on proper care, storage and cleaning.
