About

Vintage Girl in a Modern World

Why CarlaSue? Carla Sue is my mother's name(and quite a lovely one!); she grew up in the country in a small town in Ohio. You know that perfect little nostalgic town you always see in movies but wonder if really exists? Yep, that's it! My mom's family lived in a beautiful 1920s home surrounded by fields full of ponies, a pond, a vegetable garden, and apple trees. My grandmother would can home grown vegetables and homemade applesauce and bake black raspberry pies. I remember as a child going up to their huge walk-in attic full of my mother's childhood toys and being full of awe. I always loved my mom's room especially, with its white walls and furniture, purple shag carpet and purple velvet bedspread, reminiscent of Ann Margret's room in Bye Bye Birdie. I hope that with the vintage treasures I add to CarlaSue Vintage that I can capture the essence of the nostalgia I felt every time I visited small town Ohio!

Frequently asked questions
Can I return or exchange items that don't fit me?

I do not accept returns or exchanges on items with fit issues unless I have grossly mis-measured the garment. I include detailed garment measurements and an approximate US size on each listing but it is the buyer's responsibility to ensure that the garment will fit their body properly. Please message me with any questions regarding sizing and fit and I am happy to assist you as best I can.

Care instructions

Vintage items often require more gentle means of cleaning than modern garments. I always recommend hand washing or dry cleaning. Please message me for specific care instructions on an item you have purchased from me or are considering purchasing.

How do you measure your garments?

Garment measurements are taken flat, then doubled. The fabric is pulled somewhat taut but not overly stretched.

*Hip measurements are taken 9" below the natural waistline
