It's a little secret: Mrs. Robinson's Affairs

Mrs. Robinson's Affairs is the result of twenty years of studying, collecting and restoring vintage clothes.

Having grown up playing in her mother's closet, owner Claudine Villardito began "rescuing" vintage clothing shortly after entering college. What began with two rolling racks quickly grew to a collection of hundreds of garments, including many rare, couture and collectible pieces, each of which Claudine fully restored with the help of a global team of experts, including a couture seamstress, a master dry cleaner, an artisanal re-weaver and expert hand-finisher.

Villardito's flagship store, Black Cat Vintage (www.blackcatvintage.com), opened in 2005 and caters to museums, costumers and designers in search of exceptionally rare heritage and haute couture garments for exhibit, archive and study. By contrast, Mrs. Robinson's Affairs stocks the stylish, effortlessly elegant vintage that everyday people wore to work, play and relax in the mid-century. Despite their more humble origins, every piece in Mrs. Robinson's Affairs is held to the same standards of quality and wearability as the couture collection, but can be worked in to buyers' existing wardrobes and enjoyed every day.

Last updated on June 3, 2019
By now you know that vintage clothing is one of the secret ingredients of a stylish wardrobe. But with so many vendors hawking trash, buying quality vintage clothing online has become a risk many shoppers are unwilling to take. That's where I come in.

I'm Claudine, the owner of Mrs. Robinson's Affairs. For the last twenty years I have collected, restored, preserved and maintained vintage clothing and accessories from all over the world. Some of my pieces are extremely rare and are currently housed in museums or used in fashion exhibits; those items are sold on my private site at blackcatvintage.com.

But despite what many vintage sellers would have you think, not all vintage clothes are museum pieces. Mrs. Robinson's Affairs specializes in the clothes that the people of the last century wore to live, work, play and celebrate. Their immaculate style, superior construction and attention to detail make them special, not their label. They are the building blocks of a chic wardrobe, and each one is restored, cleaned and maintained to the same superior standards used for my couture pieces.

Please enjoy the collection, and shop confidently. I have removed the guesswork from buying vintage online and stand by every article I sell, which will arrive clean, fresh and ready to enjoy right out of the box.

Welcome to Mrs. Robinson's Affairs. Ready to have a little fun?
