I finally broke down and accepted that my green wall wasn't working as a backdrop, so I got a simple, textured new one! It's love!


Helping Vintage Dresses Find Their Forever Homes

Back in the late 1990s, when eBay was in its infancy and Etsy was a twinkle in its creator's eye, I co-ran a website called 80's Twilight, where my friend (SBVintageAndDesign) and I sold 80's toys. I love dresses of all eras, and I've found my niche here on Etsy, where I can help beautiful vintage dresses and accessories find their forever homes.

In addition to loving dresses, I am also an avid knitter, spinner (I don't mean on bicycles, folks), runner (although a slow one), reader (#teamHufflepuff) and I love spending time with my husband and 3 rescue dogs more than anything.

I am a full-time music teacher with the schedule that comes with it, so it may take me a day or two to find my way to the post office. I promise to get your item to you as soon as possible!

    I'm a full time vocal music teacher who is obsessed with dresses! I've been thrifting and collecting dresses for years and finally decided to stop trying to keep myself from buying every pretty dress I saw, whether or not it fits!

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Measurements are taken laying flat and are then doubled when applicable (bust, waist, hips). The size is just an estimate (unless stated on the tag), and vintage sizes are different than modern sizes. I do my best to estimate the closest approximate modern size but please use measurements to ensure proper fit.

Some items have been pinned to fit the dress form. Petticoats are not included in any item unless indicated in the item listing.

When Buying Vintage

Please remember that these items are vintage! All items are pre-owned, so please expect some degree of natural wear. I do my best to note flaws but may overlook small things from time to time. The older the dress, the less the construction will look like a modern garment, so please don't be surprised by raw or pinked edges, unusual closures, etc.

Detailed and accurate measurements are provided on every item that is listed. It is the buyers responsibility to check the measurements and ensure it will fit properly.

Return Policy Clarification

I am happy to issue a return. Please note the limited time frame for allowed returns. Items must be returned in the same condition they arrived. Buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returns will NOT be issued outside of the time frame or if the item is not returned in its original condition.

Discounts and Sales

Listed prices are firm. I do not offer discounts upon request. However, I do run sales from time to time. They are posted on my Instagram, so please follow me there to be kept up-to-date on upcoming sales!
