About

✩The Wandering Ruby Olive✩

THE WANDERING RUBY OLIVE is a curated shop that offers hand selected, high quality, feminine clothing and accessories from all eras. All offerings are pieces that can be worn everyday and that can be styled for modern relevance.

My shop name is a nod to the magnificent women with whom I come from. My mom, Wanda (which means the wanderer); my maternal grandmother, Ruby; and my paternal grandmother, Olive. The pictures above are them. Don't I look just like my mom??!!

Additional policies and FAQs
✩VINTAGE...PRE- LOVED TREASURES✩

All items at TWRO are true vintage. Please note that garments may not be 100% free of minor flaws. Almost all vintage clothing (with the exception of deadstock) have been pre-loved and display a certain amount of wear. TWRO strives to accurately describe and disclose any flaws; however, please expect wear consistent with age.

✩BEST FIT✩

To ensure best fit, we like to recommend comparing the garment's measurements to a similar garment you may already own. If you are unsure and have questions about fit, seam or hem allowances, or appearance of an item, contact me and I will gladly send you additional pictures and/or measurements. it is important to us that you adore your TWRO item!

✩HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF✩

Keep in mind that vintage sizes run smaller than modern sizes and are usually tailored to fit the previous owner. Make sure to allow enough room to wear with ease if you are going by your actual body measurements rather than comparing measurements of a similar garment you may already own.

Use a dress maker's measuring tape and measure over undergarments not clothing.

CHEST/ BUST
Measure just under the arms, across fullest part of chest, around shoulder blades, holding tape firm and level

WAIST
Measure around your natural waistline. Keeping one finger between the tape and waist

HIPS
In standing position, measure around the fullest point of hips.

SLEEVE LENGTH
With arm relaxed at side and slightly bent, measure center of top shoulder, over the shoulder, down to the outer wrist

LENGTH
Measure from the center top of your shoulder, down the front to the point where the bottom hem should lay
