Be Green Be Fabulous Wear Vintage xoxoxo APMV

My name is Jen. I have a love afair with fashion, clothing and most of all vintage! I've been designing my own clothes and buying and wearing vintage for about 15 years now. That love took me to art school and I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design. It has always been a dream of mine to start my own business, and etsy makes that possible. I live with my wonderful husband, Mike, our four amazing and rambunctious kids, Sophie, Blake, Kasey and Austin. We also have two fur babies, Arlo and Johnny Cash.

I take a lot of time to carefully choose vintage items that are in excellent condition and unique, striving to keep my pricing reasonable so that everyone can wear vintage. Using styling and upcycling techniques make each piece relevant for today. Vintage pieces for a contemporary era.

The pieces that I make are sourced from vintage fabrics and textiles. Vintage leather, because of it's durability and its story, is my favorite to use. Creating is in my blood, and the creative process is so organic that each piece comes out different and is unique.

I grew up in a very creative family that allowed me many creative freedoms. I was a dancer for 10 years, art classes, piano, speech, acting...if it was creative I wanted to be involved! My mother had her own stained glass window business and my father is in landscape architecture. Growing up I was always drawing and creating things and I never wanted to look like everyone else. Designing clothes and accessories gave me a creative outlet and a way to express my individuality.

It warms my heart knowing that my treasured vintage and handmade pieces are touching other people all over the world! I love the idea that every vintage piece has a history and by recycling the old we are making it new and fabulous again! I want to inspire others to dare to create their own style! Step outside the box of convention and be an individual!
Be Green, look Fabulous and wear Vintage!!!

We accept payment by Paypal. Paypal should let you use a credit card to pay, even if you don't have an account.

We do now accept credit card payment. Please allow a little more time for shipping because of the terms of paying with credit cards on etsy.

If you're waiting for a paycheck, but don't want something to slip away, please message us and we can reserve it for you. We reserve items for up to a week.
Your purchase will be shipped within 7 buisiness days, however I usually ship within a day or two! I will always try my very best to get everything out as soon as I can!!

We generally ship First Class for the US. In some cases for very light or heavier items it's cheaper to ship via other methods and we will go with those.

International orders are usually sent via First Class mail as this is much cheaper than priority. First Class Mail does not include tracking or insurance. First Class mail has a weight limit of 4 pounds, so not all items can be shipped this way. Heavier orders have to go Priority Mail, which can be pricier, but you'll save by ordering more than one item!

Finally, please note that International buyers are responsible for any customs, duties or other fees associated with importing items into their countries.

I do not buy extra insurance myself for shipping, however if you would like me to message me during your purchase and I will add it into the shipping cost!
If lost in transit, insured items will be refunded through USPS.

I will include a tracking number for all US orders, and a customs number on international purchases.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not accept returns as items are used and sold "as-is". Items are examined carefully prior to offering for sale, any issues will be noted.
Fit is your responsibility, accurate measurements are provided, please compare to a similar, well fitting item for proper fit.
Cases of buyer's remorse do not qualify for a return, nor does an item not fitting.

Please keep in mind that all the items we sell are vintage and small imperfections are common...this is what gives it a great vintage look!

If any detail has been overlooked please contact me and we will try our best to come to a mutual resolution.
Additional policies and FAQs
All of our items come from a smoke free home!
