"A boudoir is a lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning "to pout"

"Imagine a small dim room. The walls are plastered with a sensuous dusky rose wallpaper...the motifs being a scene of burgeoning deco flowers and sensual sea nymphs...their eyes transfixed on you...you wonder at their plight of lust.

Your eyes gaze up at the very dim hanging chandelier...every crystal straining to twinkle in the faint light. You look across the room and see your eyes in a gilt framed mirror. The mirror is perched on a low mahogany dresser, magnificent in its rich and dark gothic color and laden with an ecru needle lace antimacassar. A Japanese tissue silk robe awaits you on a small stool covered in satin.

Your eyes feast upon the delicacies before you...a dresser set made of porcelain with petite point rose trim...a silver jewelry box lined in red velvet and filled to the brim with glistening rhinestones and lustrous pearls. Virginal white talc and "poudre d'illusion" rest below large feathered puffs in crystal jars. The air is filled with a musty scent of vanilla and sandalwood. You see the shaped bottles and atomizers...you feel dizzy with the erotic scent...which one gives that heavenly aroma you wonder?

As you step forward into your boudoir...your adrenaline rushes and your heart skips a beat...you think about the night ahead..."

✂ This is a sub-division store of La Belle Vintage, Inc. Visit us for antique and vintage boudoir items. Our main store can be found at www.labellevintage.net or https://www.etsy.com/shop/labellevintage

✂ Please contact us with any questions you may have. Do note that some of our items are clipped on our dress form/mannequin for presentation purposes. Most of our items have had a previous life before reaching to us, but we will be sure to let you know if there are any traces of wear and tear to them. Mistakes can be made every now and then, but we try to stick to perfection and quality.

✂ VINTAGE ITEMS = OLD ITEMS
Please take this into consideration when purchasing from us. Vintage does not mean "vintage styled". Our inventory consists of items more than 30 years old. More than likely, the item you buy from us may have been worn...maybe worn a few times. We do have occasional MINT/UNWORN items, but for the most part, our items have been previously loved and used. Items sent will be very wearable by our standards before being sent out. So please, no more phone calls at 3am to tell me that you think someone wore your dress...someone did wear your dress...probably wore it 100 years ago.

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
  • Other Method
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
✂ REFUNDS:
All Sales are FINAL. We do not accept returns or offer refunds of any kind. Please note this before buying.
Although we write thorough (and sometimes long) descriptions, questions regarding color, size, measurements, shipping, fabric etc are recommended and welcomed.
Our garments are vintage which means that they are at least 30 years old and have been previously worn unless New Old Stock. If there are flaws, they will be noted.

All items are accurately described and measured. Please consider any item purchased from us as yours once this item has been shipped to you. If you have worn this item, damaged it while trying on or changed your mind after purchasing, it is still yours.
Also, do note that custom made vintage clothing, especially home-made dresses were made to fit a particular body shape so alterations would be expected.

We are not liable for your dry cleaning bill or your alterations bill, please do not send us your bill as it will be ignored. We will seek legal action for harassment if needed.

We also will not buy back the clothing after you've worn it. I know this may sound silly to some people but there are customers who are brazen enough to request this...unbelievably.

We do not accept returns because an item does not fit. We are 4th generation seamstresses, therefore we give the most accurate measurements for each garment.
It is up to you, as the buyer to know your measurements. All items have at least 1" of "wiggle" room. This ensures that you can breathe while wearing the clothes :o)

If you do not have a measuring tape, please contact us for a printable measuring tape. If you need help in measuring yourself or one of your garments for comparison, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Additional policies and FAQs
✂ VINTAGE CLOTHING CONDITION

Vintage clothing is not new so it’s important that you understand the condition of a garment. On some occasions, you will find items that have not been worn which are deadstock or new old stock (NOS). But, for the most part, vintage has been previously worn.

MINT: An item is as perfect and pristine as when it was originally made and shows no sign of wear (mint condition is rare for vintage clothing).
**Please note that Mint Unworn/Deadstock/New Old Stock items may sometimes have storage marks (due to age/elements) on the fabric. This does not constitute as "wear" as the item was never worn.

NEAR MINT: An item shows only the slightest signs of wear.

EXCELLENT: An item shows typical signs of wear due to occasional use.

VERY GOOD: An item is considered wearable but has some surface flaws (staining or soiling, for example).

GOOD: An item is wearable but cannot be returned to excellent condition even if repairs are made.

Of course, the older a piece of clothing is, the more likely it will display indications of its age. Signs of wear should be expected. Although condition ranks as a main buying consideration for vintage clothing, it’s not as crucial for older items.

✂ IS MY DRESS CLEAN?

Items are always sent to you in a ready to wear condition. "Estate fresh" garments are never in ready to wear condition so that means we take the extra time/care to either carefully launder and iron our items, steam, press or have them dry cleaned before sending.
The only garments that we do not clean are deadstock/new old stock garments that have not been worn. Collectors prefer these in "Estate fresh" condition. However, if you purchase a deadstock item from us and would prefer it cleaned before sending out, just let us know. There is no charge for this...just request this.
We NEVER use items such as Febreeze or Dryel as those are not cleaning agents. They are only used to mask odors and will leave dirt and residue in your vintage garment...so trust us, we know our stuff :o)
*NOTE*
Items are stored with cedar and lavender sachets to keep away moths etc. Please do not purchase if you are allergic to any of those.
If you are also allergic to moth ball odor, "old clothing smell" or "old lady smell", you should not be purchasing vintage...period
Although we clean every single item before listing, vintage clothing has had a life before reaching to us and we cannot be held responsible for your allergic reactions.

✂ COSTUME DESIGNING/PHOTOGRAPHY

Doing a vintage film, play, photo shoot or ad? We may have just what you need. We have special discounts for large orders or on set credits. No rentals though!
