I was a little surprised when I opened the box because I was expecting a very small brooch and there was a really big one in the box, LOL! I never asked, but looking at the photo, the brooch looked like it was small and made of stones, but neither was true. Regardless, it is still a lovely piece and was shipped quickly. It was intended to go with a gift for my sister, who likes small jewelry, but i guess I will have to keep it for myself!!!

About

Dressed Her Days Vintage

If you’re the sort of person who remembers every significant day of your life by what you were wearing, then we’re definitely soul sisters. Clothes are way more important to me than they should be! I remember my own wardrobe practically in utero.

As a toddler, I embarrassed my Mom by making a beeline for my grandmother’s sewing room every time we visited, searching for my newest dress. About every other trip, I found one of Grandma’s handmade frocks, hanging from the doorknob. Like one of Pavlov’s dogs, she pretty much conditioned me to look there.

My first vintage piece was a man’s midnight blue tuxedo jacket circa 1960, which I bought in 1985 and lost in 1999 when I left it draped over a chair in a Bob Evans restaurant. I still own a royal blue wool coat, custom-made for me in 1962 by the first fashion designer I loved, Grandma Gertie. She didn’t have a lot of material things, but she planted the first seeds of my deep appreciation for beautiful clothing.

I sell for two reasons: 1) because I've run out of space for collecting and 2) because I have an EXCELLENT eye for spying vintage garments. Over the past two years, I've also revived my sewing skills allowing me to save/remake some vintage styles that need a little modification to be cool again. I love giving these garments another life!

    Just your average fashion obsessed girl who makes my living as a copywriter. When I ran out of space in my own closet, I did what any sane fashionista would do --open an Etsy shop where I could share my discoveries with others.

Here's how this vintage thing works. We’ve got a pretty good eye for flaws you’d want to know about. Each item is paired with an honest appraisal, considering how we’d feel if we were going to wear the item ourselves. When we give a rating, we think of the most conservative buyer. That means we lean toward the persnickety side of things, hoping to ward off disappointment. Our intention is to pay scrupulous attention to flaws. Flaws are noted in our descriptions and, if possible, in photographs so you can see for yourself. Occasionally, a detail may elude us. If you feel we’ve missed something significant in our disclosure, by all means, tell us about it. Below is a key to the descriptive terms we use to describe each piece. Before you buy, can we offer this gentle reminder? Vintage clothing is not the same as new or other pre-owned clothing.

MINT: This is a rare find! This little gem is practically flawless. Some items may still have the tags. Someone has preserved this item with a lot of TLC.
EXCELLENT: This item has been worn, but you’d hardly know it. We can’t find anything that separates it from something you’d buy retail—except, of course, it’s iconic style and incompable quality!
GOOD: Most vintage items are like this: they’ve got a past and that’s what makes them interesting. They have at least one flaw––fading, a loose hem, a small tear, or small holes or stains. If there’s more than one or two, we’ll tell you so. You can wear them with confidence with little or no adjustments.
FAIR: A distinctive piece that’s still wearable despite some noticeable flaws. These items are typically chosen for their distinctiveness and our certainty that some die-hard vintage lover will be so captivated that its imperfections are hardly worth a thought.

Money Orders and Checks
• We also accept payments by U.S. postal money order made to Dressed Her Days Vintage.
• On orders placed using checks and money orders, we can hold items for 5 days allowing time for transit. If the check or money order hasn’t arrived within this time we will lift the hold and the item will be returned to our inventory. If you decide to purchase the item after that time frame, we’d like you to pay using PayPal or Google Checkout. Check and money orders will be shipped as soon as they clear our bank. This is usually 7-10 business days. We do not accept checks from outside the US.
Shipping
• We are not responsible for any mishandling of your order by any carrier. Please make any claims directly to the carrier.
• We will ship your order generally within two business days using the most economical ground shipping available.
• If express shipping is your preference, let us know when your original order request is placed and we will try to accommodate your request. You’ll be invoiced for express/priority shipping and the item will be shipped upon payment of that invoice.
Refunds and Exchanges
Vintage clothing is very much like the people we love: their charm stems from small imperfections shaped by life’s events. Although some vintage items are truly in mint condition, most have at least one small flaw.

We carefully rate and describe the condition of our vintage collection so you know what you’re buying. Please take these remarks into your consideration when buying. If you are in doubt about the condition or sizing of a garment, let us hear from you. We really want you to be happy with what you buy and we'll try to help you determine if the item will work for you.

As a small business, we have priced each piece to cover the cost of purchasing, photographing, describing, measuring, uploading, packaging and shipping. Unlike a big box retailer, we can't easily recover the cost of returns by selling in volume.

If your garment doesn't work out, we encourage you to try to resell it. That's the beauty of buying vintage--it retains its value because it is a one-of-a-kind piece.
Additional policies and FAQs
About Our Sizing

The measurements you’ll see with each garment are in inches, including the circumference for the bust, waist, and hips. All other dimensions are the flat measurements of the garment.

To get a good fit, you need to share (approximately) the same dimensions as the garment. If, for example, our description shows a 34 inches hip measurement, you would need to measure 34 inches or less in order to wear the garment. Ideally, you might allow yourself ½ to 1 inch extra to allow for ease and movement. That all depends on how you like your clothes to fit—snug as a glove, or free enough to enjoy a sumptuous meal!


Free-flowing garments fit most sizes and are labeled “open.” We sometimes clip garments to fit our forms so don’t be surprised if you can wear something that looks smaller than you are. The garment may be bigger than it looks on your screen.
When taking your own measurements, follow this guide:

Total Length: measure from shoulder to hem
Torso length: measure shoulder to waist
Outer seam length: measure from waist to hem on skirts or slacks
Shoulder width: measure the back of a garment that fits you well, from shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Sleeve length: measure from the shoulder seam to the wrist or the hem of the sleeve
Rise: measure from the waist to the crotch on slacks
Inseam length: measure from the inside of the crotch to the hem
Neck: measure around the neck
Upper arm: measure around biceps/widest part of upper arm
Bust: measure around fullest part of bust
Waist: measure around the natural waist, usually the narrowest part of the torso
Hip: measure around the fullest part of the hips
