-- Carefully chosen vintage clothing and adornments--

Shipped a little late due to my buying the day the shop went on vacation, and the buyer wasn't notified. But when I asked if it was shipped, the coat was immediately sent, and I was refunded the shipping costs. The coat is a tad darker than the picture, but still gorgeous, I love it!

Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final. Returns are reviewed on an individual basis after proper contact has been made and generally only if a substantial error was made in the listing. Because each item is measured carefully, returns due to poor fit are not accepted. If a return is approved, shipping charges are not refundable and the item is subject to a 15% restocking fee. Buyers are responsible for all return shipping.
You are your the best your best judge for fit :) Please read a garment's measurements carefully and compare to your own. If you are unsure, try measuring an item in your closet and see if it is a good match. All garment photos are taken using a US size 2 dress form measuring of 32.5-25-34.5. If you have other questions about size or appearance, I am happy to provide additional photographs and measurements.
All vintage clothing listed has been gently used unless otherwise indicated, and may not be free of flaws. Imperfections are listed to the best of my knowledge.

Additional policies and FAQs
Vintage clothing sizes differ from modern day sizing-- in many cases, varying from decade to decade. All items in the shop are measured flat and doubled. Please remember that garment measurements are not body measurements.
Vintage clothing is generally cut much closer than current fashion standards. For this reason, it is important that you allow enough room to move comfortably while wearing your new item. **It is important to remember wear vintage garments with care and consideration of their age.**
If you are unsure about measurements, sizing, or the appearance of any item, feel free to contact me.
