I am beyond thrilled with this purchase! It is in great condition, nice leather, clean, no smells or stains and has a small strap in case I want to wear it as a shoulder bag. Did I mention it's a perfect match for my white Louboutins!! :]

The dress is beautiful! Thank you very much!
a life long vintage love affair...
I have been interested in fashion and clothes as long as I can remember (o.k. since the ''you are a girl therefore you should wear a top''--@ 2yrs old -- mom.) Once I had boundaries I had to explore them. What I was and is most attracted to almost always is vintage.
My house and wardrobe is primarily an eclectic mix of 40's-70's. I have been collecting (then selling to live) clothing since I was a youngster. I discovered vintage out of necessity as I was poor and quirky. The quality and detail of vintage clothing often can not be matched for ten times the price which is a godsend for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with an eye for fashion. So ala ''Pretty in Pink'' I was forced to get a personality and it stuck! All this brought me here to my current beloved occupation, finding loving homes for amazing vintage!
I started selling vintage clothing as my full time preoccupation about a decade ago. First via Ebay. Later in other's stores. When I was the curator of the clothing section in Retro Ranch we won Best of Phoenix for Vintage Clothing! My family and I then went on to open our own brick and mortar which was a dream come true but after three years of being married to the store I found myself craving adventure so we decided to close doors and enjoy a little more freedom by going all online once again. So here I am living my vintage dreams...

NOTES ON GETTING A PROPER FIT
Vintage clothing tends to fit a bit differently than modern clothing. It is is cut much closer to the body and for this reason it is essential that you allow enough room to move comfortably while wearing your vintage piece. I find myself forever telling people "Breathing is important!". Please remember that the measurements in the listings are of the garment and not of you. Your measurements will need to be a bit smaller then the garment's in order for it to fit you properly.
Mid century clothing was also often designed to accentuate the hourglass figure and as a result you will find the waist lines tend to run small, this waspie figure can be attained with the right foundation garments, ie girdles, spanx and cinchers. Also, if your measurements are off a little the situation can often be rectified by having the garment altered to fit you. LollyPOP Vintage is happy to answer any questions about available seam allowances, darts, and hem allowances before you purchase
NOTE ON LETTER SIZING USED IN TITLES
all letter sizing provided in listing titles (i.e. xs,s,m,l,xl) are to be used as helpful approximate guides for search purposes. For ACTUAL sizing use the ACTUAL measurements provided. Thank you.
Use a dressmaker’s tape measure. You can get one at your local fabric store. Measure yourself over the undergarments you plan to wear under the vintage piece and not over your clothing.
measure over the fullest part of your bust while wearing a bra.
measure around the fullest part of your ribcage, about midway between your bust and waist.
measure around the smallest point of your waist where it curves in.
measure around the fullest part of your hips. This is usually about 8"-9" below your waist.
Shoulder to Waist
Measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, following the curve of your bust.
measure from the top of your shoulder, where a normal shoulder seam would lie, down the front, to the point you want the garment to end at the hem.
ANOTHER HELPFUL HINT
Measure an item in your wardrobe that fits you well and is similar to the item you are wishing to purchase and compare the two.
