Girl And A Gun Vintage

Girl And A Gun's name comes from a quote by the french director Jean-Luc Godard

“All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun”.

(Check out the movie "Breathless" and "Pirrot Le Fou" they are my favorites!)

I believe women (and men) can and should dress as though they are the leading characters of their lives!
People forget that they can be whomever they dream of being. Clothes really help you build a character and a story. Actors always say their characters come alive once they have on the costume. Why shouldn't we all use that trick? I know I have days where I need some help being alive! and then help being the person i dream of being! so what does that person wear?

sequins......always sequins!

Vintage is also incredible because it's construction is often so much better then contemporary clothing and not to mention this thing that you and I are doing, where I'm bringing you awesome one of a kind fashion and you are looking and shopping for it and not fast fashion..... this is very green!! You are not contributing to factories making more stuff that ends up in a landfil! We're doing good here!! Thank you!
Then theres the fact that you're never going to show up to a party in the same outfit as some one else while wearing a vintage piece and if you do, it is the universe saying that you two should be friends! You are sole mates!!

I can't even express how happy this stuff makes me feel! From discovering the pieces, finding out their stories, taking pictures of them and creating new characters and stories within that and then sending them out to create new stories with you! Oh life is good!

So all you need to make the movie of your life, is your gorgeous self and some beautiful clothes from Girl And A Gun Vintage!
I hope that you enjoy this shop as much as I do!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Returns and exchange details
Our goal is your satisfaction!! If you want more information about a piece, please let us know, we'll be happy to provide any detail we can and additional photos at your request!

All vintage sales are final.
Vintage clothing, by very definition, is decades old. Some may show natural signs of age and wear. We will do our best to detail any major flaws in the description. We take great pains to accurately measure and photograph all of our items, therefore it is our policy not to accept returns for fit issues or minor imperfections. (Pinholes or pulled threads are common in most true vintage items, expect to find these occasionally; if in our opinion they affect wearability or overall look of the garment, this will have been detailed in the description.)

If you feel an item has been *significantly* misrepresented and you are unhappy with your purchase, feel free to contact us within 24 hours of receipt of your item. Returns are accepted solely in the case of gross misrepresentation. If a refund or store credit is agreed upon, the return must be postmarked within 2 business days of the agreement. Any package shipped beyond this timeframe will be denied.

We work very hard to display the garment in accurate color and natural light, however, your monitor may vary. If the exact color is important to you, please contact us prior to purchase; we are happy to help! WE WILL NOT GIVE REFUNDS FOR PERCEIVED VARIATIONS IN COLOR!

If you feel you've had a less-than-positive experience or you are not happy with your purchase, please contact us before you leave a review so we have an opportunity to provide you with a top-notch experience! We love these garments and we want you to as well!

Additional policies and FAQs
Please take a few moments to read the sizing information below...


-All of our measurements are taken while the garment is laying flat and should be doubled (bust, hips, waist, etc..). If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
-Some items are clipped in the back of model to show true fit, but this will ALWAYS be stated in the description.
-Accessories are not included unless stated otherwise.


Use a dressmaker’s tape measure (Craft store, grocery store). Measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear but not over your clothing.

BUST/CHEST: measure over the fullest part of your bust/chest
WAIST: Measure around the smallest point of your waist where it naturally curves in.
HIPS: measure around the fullest part of your hips...( your bum!)
LENGTH: measure from the top (shoulder, waist) down the front
SLEEVE: from end of shoulder seam
