The story of Call Her Alaska

I am inspired by rural settings, especially abandoned farms. Certain slants of sunlight falling on a wood floor. Lace curtains, dandelion fluff. Writers and musicians who have the ability to articulate life's seemingly abstract and incommunicable nuances into arresting prose. The strange symbiotic relationship between human emotion and the inability to express it. Clotheslines and the erratic songs of cicadas.

Oh, I also really love inappropriate humour.

✄ All sales are considered FINAL, so please choose carefully! Exceptions are only considered if there was a significant error in the listing. As vintage dress sizes are different than modern dress sizes, please measure yourself carefully and compare your measurements to the ones in the listing. Do not go by the size tag, as a size 12 in 1950 or 1960 had different measurements than a size 12 today.
If you are unsure of how the garment will fit, please email me for additional information and/or measurements.

Additional policies and FAQs
✄ Condition Guidelines: All flaws and defects will be outlined in description. Because vintage is, by definition, older than 20 years or more, the condition of all items will not be as they were when they were first manufactured. Here is a guide to help you make sense of the condition listed in the item’s description:
DEADSTOCK: No signs of wear and tags are still attached
MINT: Appears brand new and not worn, though no tags are attached
EXCELLENT: Only signs of wear are those consistent with age (e.g. light leather wrinkling, very slight pilling or pulling which will be outlined in description). Please note these ‘signs of age’ will become more pronounced the older an item is. Look at the pictures carefully and read the descriptions before purchase, and don’t hesitate to ask more questions about its condition.
GOOD: Integrity of garment still intact and is wearable as is, though there are some flaws that can be fixed (these flaws will be outlined in description)
NEEDS WORK: Flaws which may need an expert hand in order to make garment wearable again
