Curated Vintage Wardrobe for the Modern Woman

Wayward Collection grew out of a passion for finding the "original" version of contemporary trends and styles, because after all, everything comes back around. Each piece in our shop is hand-selected with an eye for quality, fit, and modern wearability.

Haley is the daughter of antiques dealers, a long-time collector and wearer of vintage, and has a third eye for trends. Trust her.

*Shoes: vintage shoes are described based on visual evaluation and are not worn or tested before hand.

We will ship your items no later than 3 business days after receipt of payment via USPS. All shipping costs are calculated based on estimated package weight and are thus exact cost. You can choose the shipping method/timeframe that works best for your order.

- International Shipping -
International customers must pay any fees or duties incurred by their countries upon shipping. Items sent via First Class International (by far the most economical method for any item weighing less than 4 pounds) are shipped at the buyer's risk, as these packages are untraceable after they leave the US. We cannot offer refunds for items lost in transit abroad. If you would like to use a trackable international shipping method, please select Priority International or Priority Express when checking out.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All items are measured with the item laying flat. The measurements given are of the clothing and you should account for a little wiggle room in certain areas. You may want to compare the measurements against a similar garment that fits you well.

We always try to get the most accurate measurements, but depending on the cut of the garment, approximations may be made. Our modern size estimates are just that, estimates, so please make sure to measure, measure, measure! If you have any questions, just ask!

Care instructions

It is always advisable to hand wash or dry clean your vintage clothing, particularly the older stuff. Please feel free to ask us for tips on particular garments. All of our items have been cleaned either by hand or by a professional dry cleaner before they come to you, unless otherwise noted.

Condition Chart

Absolutely Perfect: Mint without a single flaw to note. No signs of wear. Very rare, even in deadstock items. Like new.

Near mint: The item appears to be in new condition and never used. on super-close inspection, one or two barely detectable signs of wear remind us this item is not new.

Excellent: Item shows only the slightest signs of wear, typical from occasional use. No major flaws. One or two minor notables which in no way detract from overall beauty.

Very good: Wearable with a few minor surface flaws. Imperfections are not noticeable and do not detract from garment.

Good: minor flaws, some noticeable when worn, but easily overlooked. structurally sound and wearable

Shipping Concerns

If you have not received your package within the estimated shipping time-table, please contact us. We will do our best to find out further information through USPS. Often times, if you haven't received your package, particularly in the EU, it's best to call your customs office or local PO to see if they have any further information. Unfortunately, once and item leaves the US, it's very hard to track from our side, unless you have upgraded your shipping method to USPS Priority Mail or USPS Express Mail, which costs quite a bit more. If you would rather have peace of mind and would like to ensure that your items arrives quickly and fully tracked, we recommend upgrading.
