About me: I’m a Brooklyn-based marketing & publication editorial prop stylist & set designer for nationwide magazines like REAL SIMPLE, Instyle, Modern High-end, and All You, and understand a thing or 2 about merchandise & merchandising. I develop sets, produce image shoots, and do a great deal of searching for everything you can envision, and understand the vintage and retail market like the back of my hand. I started my career in high-end 5th Avenue window screen – similar to “Rhoda” from Mary Tyler Moore– at Henri Bendel & Bergdorf-Goodman where I dressed mannequins in crystal beaded evening dress & set classy tables with jillion dollar dinnerware & one of a kind tableware baubles in the 7th Floor “House” department. It existed I learned the art of styling luxury merchandise & creating an aspirational & remarkable state of mind with chic designer clothing on mannequins, and how romancing the clothing brought it to life and revealed the possible wearer how it fit into her way of life. That experience makes me love having a store on Etsy where I can source & have fun with cool & unusual clothing & help customers see & picture how they might wear my hand picked classic garments. I’m out shopping more often than anybody else I understand, & have a stealth intuition for discovering fantastic at-risk vintage clothes & devices. The outcome: a well curated online store that I consider a well-off collection of classic clothing from some remarkable closets, 50s/ 60s/ 70s house accessories that will trim your house with elan & flair. I likewise stock classic fashion magazines (lots of that are not listed, so if you are searching for some please ask) and photography & designs books. You will find a sprinkling of vintage lighting, cool desk & work space devices, plus probabilities & ends that will trigger your design senses – and all with a smile & a fantastic rate in contrast to what I see in the market.
On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and I love hearing from customers looking for particular products (I also love seeing photos of happy clients wearing their finds from my store). I feel that I price really fairly, but if you like, like, like something however can not manage it I am often open to marking down, however just within major factor. I majorly frown:-LRB- on low-ball offers for products in my stores that are plainly well-priced so please extra me the low balls and do us both a favor and do not go there. A couple of dollars off is great; obnoxious bargaining is simply bad kind. And please do not request for totally free shipping on top of a discount. Go to Amazon for that. I hate to sound that method but lately the free shipping thing has moved over from Ebay to this charming zone we call Etsy. My policy on returns is this: no seller suches as returns. I measure & information everything with as much details as possible & anticipate that you will use those measurements making your purchase. I have done my work and I anticipate you will have done yours. I’m not an ogre, either, so if there is a real problem with your purchase (other than you altered your mind like you might at H & M or Target) I will take a return on garments that show up back to me in the exact same condition I sent them in. I comprehend that classic fit can be challenging, so speak to me in advance of problems you have, and later on if there is a real problem. I desire pleased clients, and I certainly want your clothes to fit. If an item shows up broken or destroyed by the postal service kindly contact me immediately and we can exercise the solution.

I inspect my account daily so leave a message, or if you are set on a purchase but need a few days just go through checkout and we can arrange things out later. While I take PayPal payments, however not credit cards, I am likewise very happy to take a personal check.

Shipping: I can deliver around the world (though not all over) so Convo me for queries about nations not listed. I’m great with Very first Class International (though not to Italy, please). When I am in town I typically ship very same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. Custom-mades costs for international purchasers: In your country they more than likely collect import duties on product – I have absolutely no control over those charges. Purchasers are needed to pay those charges, so
feel in one’s bones they will arrive with a collection notice. There are some restrictions on mailing vintage clothes abroad (Brazil does not allow it) so examine your local listings if you understand that there might be an issue.
On vintage clothing fit & sizing: Will it fit me? What’s a size 7? I have actually never ever become aware of a size 22, that’s really a size 6! How can I know my bust size? To assess whether a vintage garment will fit correctly it’s a smart idea to make use of a tailor’s tape to measure a gown, jacket, or pants that you love and fits you well, then compare them to the measurements I have noted which provide the precise measurements of the garment. I measure garments laid-flat to obtain the actual material measurements and seam measurements. I either note the “across the bust” measurement, or sometimes double that number for the actual measurement. The majority of vintage sizing tags do not associate with modern-day sizing, which is nuts (you may be a 4, however a 1960s size 13 might be an ideal fit) so do not focus on vintage size numbers (as a rule). Likewise, the fitted corsets and busts of vintage gowns do not figure into modern sizing, so if you are busty and have a nipped waist you might discover that classic works well for you. To look great in a 50s fitted gown you may wish to consider finding vintage long-line bras that will support your bust and fit like the dresses were meant. I’m constantly bewildered when my female buddies do not know their measurements – simply some size number they decline to budge from – so they never know it stuff they see online will fit. Your bra size is probably an inch less than the measurement throughout the bust, so you can go from there. The bra size is determined simply listed below the bust for an upper chest circumference, and the letter designates the size of the cup. It’s a smart idea to keep your measurements on an index card in your handbag & understand your bust, high rib cage, high waist, low waist, measurements. With a tape procedure in tow you will reap the benefit of an appropriate fit anywhere you store. Simply saying.
