The best feeling in the world is putting on a dress and feeling like it was made for you! The icing on the cake is when the shop owner is such a pleasure to deal with. I am so happy I snagged this lovely dress. I love the fact that it's vintage but also timeless. Looking forward to wearing this to the office when the weather warms up in New England. I highly recommend HouseOfSimpkin. Their collection is beautifully curated and the service is top notch. Looking forward to coming back for more!

Alice and House of Simpkin is my favorite seller on Etsy. I have literally bought half of her shop—don’t tell my husband. I’ve never ever gotten a misrepresented item. In response to another reviewer, House of Simpkin has a clear no returns policy so it’s up to the buyer to measure themselves and ensure an item will fit, don’t just go by size (s,m,l, etc.) I actually don’t know a vintage seller who does offer returns as they’re one of a kind, older items so it’s a bit of a gamble, but with House of Simpkin it’s always paid off. Always. ❤️❤️👏🏻💥👏🏻👊🏼
