This dress is wonderful. I was concerned because of my figure as to whether it would fit. Questions were answered immediately, and resulted in my ordering the dress. So friendly, and I was so pleased when it came, as it fits! Very comfortable, and would definitely order from this person again! Thank you so much!

Fun Vintage & Upcycled Retro Fashions from Southern California
Holly has sold vintage online for over 10 years, first on Ebay and later here on Etsy. Holly now divides her time between Paris and southern California. Jen also sold on Ebay, and joined up with Holly to make Bella Kait their shop for the most fun vintage and restyled fashions. Jen loves to travel & just got back from Spain. Together they infuse their style with an international look you will love to wear.
At one time they both sold in a sweet little shop located in southern California that didn't make it through the economic crash, but that's OK, since now they have more time to shop for vintage instead of minding the store!
Bella Kait is about style, not just vintage. Using what they know from working as costumers in L.A., they list photos that show great ways to look amazing in vintage. Their upcycled vintage pieces are often darling dresses with simple damages that make them unwearable. Add inspiration to that dress, and pouf! a new look emerges that is just right and too cute to pass up. After years spent costuming, they know exactly how to upcycle anything!
Holly & Jen
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
Holly & Jen design costumes in southern California. Along the way they collected lots of wonderful vintage & some styles they upcycled for fun. With too many racks of cool vintage, they joined up & are now sharing these great finds with you.

We list the actual garment measurements.
You should add room for movement and fit when you make your decision.
It may be helpful to measure a similar garment you own and compare the two.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this item.
Currently there are no standard U.S. size charts, so we cannot quote a size for you.
Each manufacturer may tag apparel with any size they wish.
With that in mind, the buyer should know their own body measurements, rather than a size.
Please be aware that the color on your monitor may differ from the actual item as it is listed.
We can quote a Pantone color number if you desire that information.
Our vintage items are clean and ready to wear.
They are listed in great vintage condition, unless noted.
As true VINTAGE, the fashions listed here are previously owned and worn, so signs of age may occur.
We attempt to mend and make neat all of our listings, but tiny flaws can slip by, and should be acceptable to you.
We will list any tears, holes, fading or spots in the fabric that we find, but it may be possible that small flaws will escape our notice and not be listed.
As a vintage buyer, you should be willing to accept small flaws that do not affect the wearable quality of the garment.
We photo document all of our garments prior to sale as reference.
Because every item is sold as wearable and in good shape, returns for condition, fit or style are not accepted.
Please contact us immediately for flaws that make your garment unwearable.
All sales are final and we do not accept returns for fit, style and other conditions not related to gross damages present at the time of sale.
