Absolutely fantastic! The item was exactly as described and the shop owner was very sweet and answered all of my inquiries about the shipping of my dress amidst a postal strike.

This dress is so pretty! It is unique, and I love the beautiful shade of green. The quality is wonderful, and both dresses I ordered were like opening up a brand new dress. This seller takes special attention to package nicely, and care for the items she sells. It definitely shows and I will continue to check this site for beautiful and unique clothes. Also, her descriptions of the items I purchased was 100% accurate.

Very beautiful dress! It is even prettier than the picture, and in like new condition. This seller is great to work with. The dresses I ordered were wrapped in tissue and packaged so nice!! It was like opening an expensive present! But it was very reasonable for such high quality! Also shipped even sooner than I expected. I would definitely purchase from this shop again.

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

Starlet Vintage evolved over the years from my love of vintage fabric and design, and in earlier years in Vancouver I put out small collections made with vintage fabric for local indie designer shops. My dream of working sustainably and having a vintage shop where I might also sell my own designs became a reality after moving to the Sunshine Coast, 40 minutes by ferry from Vancouver. It's a beautiful place with the coast range mountains in the distance, and wild, private beaches.
Starlet Vintage the brick and mortar shop opened in 2010 in Gibsons Landing on a street lined with chic little shops and restaurants with the waterfront just across the street. It's a busy place in the summer, and a popular get-away for Vancouverites on the weekends. It really feels like the best of both worlds - ferrying to the city for vintage is my dream of a day trip and the perfect change of pace - but watching the coast come into view on the return run is still a treat every time.
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.
Styling the pieces, doing the photography, working with the beautiful construction and quality of vintage garments and fabrics is pure pleasure, but it's low impact on this planet, and the totally unique possibilities for self - expression seals it for me, and 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 !
If you're visiting the West Coast of Canada, I would love to see you in the shop !
You'll find us on the waterfront at
459 Marine Drive
Gibsons Landing, B.C.

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.
Returns will only be accepted in the off chance I've missed a major flaw.
Additional policies and FAQs
A few points about 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


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


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 "
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 with a hand-written card including care instructions. My goal in packaging an item is to ensure that you receive your order in the same condition it was in when it left my studio.
