About

Starlet Vintage brings you quality, hand selected vintage, sourced from Canada's west coast

Etsy is a wonderful way for me to share my finds outside of my community and I love the creative spirit and friendly atmosphere of this online marketplace.
Working with the beautiful construction and quality of vintage garments and fabrics is pure pleasure, and it's low impact on this planet, the totally unique possibilities for self - expression - I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
I'm blessed to have wonderful and loyal customers who feel the same - my thanks go to you !

International customers are responsible to their home countries for duties and tariffs.
If you have any questions at all, please convo me, I'm always happy to hear from you and will get back to you as soon as I see your message (:
Refunds and Exchanges
Being vintage, and therefore pre-loved, a certain amount of wear might be in evidence, and occasionally an amazing find might have a minor flaw that won't affect wearability. I will make you aware of any imperfections, and anything noticeable will include a photo. The item will be priced accordingly.
I take a lot of care to measure all the pieces accurately, please also see "additional information" for measuring and sizing info and guidelines, to be sure your garment fits before you order as I do not accept returns for garments that don't fit.
Additional policies and FAQs
A few points about sizing...

SHOE SIZING:

The LENGTH measurement I give for shoes is always the measurement of the INSIDE sole of the shoe from tip of toe to very back of heel
WIDTH refers to the widest INSIDE measurement at the ball of the foot

HAT MEASUREMENTS:

All hats are measured from the inside, around the hat band if there is one.
Try to measure around your own head where the hat depicted in shop sits on the mannequin's head to see if the hat will fit you in the same way.

21" = XS, or Size 6 5/8
21.5" to 21 3/4" = S, or Size 6 3/4 to 6 7/8
22" to 22 1/2" = M, or Size 7 to 7 1/8
22 3/4" to 23" = L, or Size 7 1/4 to 7 3/8
23 1/2" to 24" = XL, or Size 7 1/2 to 7 5/8

WHEN I POST GARMENT MEASUREMENTS:,

LENGTH: The back of the neck to bottom of hem, unless otherwise stated
BUST: Armpit to Armpit x 2 ( usually top of side seam at under-arm )
WAIST: Sideseam to Sideseam at the waist or an estim. x 2
HIP: Sideseam to sideseam at the hip (usually fullest
part of the garment x 2)
SLEEVE: Shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve
SHOULDER: from shoulder seam to shoulder seam

It's important to remember that your garment won't be very comfortable, if IT'S measurements are your exact body measurements. The extra fabric required for comfort is called ease.
Ideally you want the following amount of ease for a garment: (unless it's stretchy when you'll be O.K. without)

BUST: 1 1/2 "
WAIST: 1"
HIP: 2"(so you can sit down!)

Please measure yourself carefully, or compare the item to the measurements of something you already own that has a similar cut and fabric and fits you well.

The words used to describe the condition of a garment could be open to interpretation, so I thought it might be helpful to clarify the terms I use.

NEW: Tags still on, never worn
MINT: no noticeable flaws, rarely worn
EXCELLENT: may shows a small amount of wear, and have an insignificant flaw that will not be apparent when worn.
VERY GOOD: Shows some noticeable wear which will be described and photo documented. The quality of the piece makes for a desirable item as is.

Every package shipped by StarletVintage will come to you gift-wrapped and include care instructions, I use recycled packaging when possible and aim to ensure that you receive your order in the same condition it was in when it left my studio.
