About

Saturday Night Style. On A Tuesday.

While the other girls in her grade school classroom were dreaming of growing up to be a mommy, nurse, or teacher, Alisa was dreaming of being Madonna.

Her penchant for all things glam began at the tender age of 5, when she spent her school day afternoons watching MTV and dressing as her favorite pop icon. In junior high, she worshipped at the altar of Contempo Casuals, eyeing the cases of oversized jeweled and pearl earrings, wondering how many hours of babysitting it would take to take these treasures home. In high school, while classmates were headbanging and wearing moldy sweaters, Alisa was embodying the California-cool Gwen Stefani and scouring local thrift stores and resale shops for glittery frocks and platform shoes of yore.

One of her first vintage finds, a 70s black sequin cropped tank - procured from Marlene's A Touch of Class in 1994 - still hangs proudly in her closet. It was a right of passage, this top, worn underage to Mad Planet and Metropolis, and set the standard for the style of her adult life: fanciful, playful and just a bit dangerous.

hm chic vintage is in homage to Alisa and to women like her, women who are so much more than meets the eye. Women who are free-spirited yet edgy, glam but down to earth. A woman who continues to surprise not only others, but herself.

A lover of vintage since the early 90s, Alisa's style gravitates towards sexy silk blouses, bold patterns, disco stylings, sequin jackets, and accessories to add an additional layer of interest.

This shop's curated selection of clothing, accessories and select objets pour la maison (home) is in homage to women who are so much more than meets the eye. Women who are free-spirited yet edgy, glam but down to earth. A woman who continues to surprise not only others, but herself. A woman equally comfortable wearing a sequin jacket paired with distressed denim and white slouchy tee, an oversized blouse or sweater tucked into high waisted leather leggings, or a disco romper with fur-trimmed trench.

Additional policies and FAQs
Most of my items have been gently worn by fashionistas of yore and/or are from my personal archive and are in like-new/excellent to good vintage condition. I only list items I personally would be proud to wear and show off! Any minor/mendable defects will be photographed and noted.

Items have been machine/hand washed/dry cleaned and/or steamed prior to shipping, and come from a smoke-free home. They will be ready-to-wear upon arrival.

My mannequin is 34B/26/36 and unless noted, items are not clipped. Most of my items fit a modern 2-6.
