I love this shop and dress but unfortunately this dress had some additional flaws that were not disclosed in the description. The hole was larger than a pin sized hole, additionally, there was visible tearing in the tulle on one of the sleeves, and a major tear where the tail of the dress and the skirt of the dress meet. Aside from this, it was nicely packaged and arrived in a reasonable time frame.

About

Portland's premier location for glamorous vintage clothing.

Looking back, it’s almost inevitable that Liz Gross would create Portland’s most stylishly sumptuous vintage clothing boutique. When she was a child, Liz commandeered the crayon box to draw ball gowns. Afternoons she spent in her grandmother’s attic trying on silk cocktail ensembles and moth-eaten mink stoles. By the time Liz was 18, she was on a first-name basis with the staff at the thrift stores and estate sales she raided for rhinestone brooches and World War Two-era rayon dresses.

Intending to study fashion design, Liz entered the Rhode Island School of Design, but painting seduced her briefly from clothing. On leaving college, she plunged back into the world of vintage fashion, first buying and selling vintage clothing for other boutiques, then opening the Xtabay in 2001. All told, Liz has been making women beautiful in vintage clothing for 20 years.

“I love helping someone find a dress she loves, then watching her face light up when she sees herself in the mirror. She moves differently, holds herself differently. It’s like she’s uncovered her real self.”

At the Xtabay, every gown is one-of-a-kind, and each tells a story. Whether it’s a bias-cut silk nightgown from Carole Lombard’s era, a shapely 1950s dress Marilyn Monroe could have worn, or a crisp suit from Jackie Kennedy’s 1960s, each piece is carefully selected to make a timeless addition to the modern woman’s wardrobe.

Gowns from the Xtabay have dazzled on the red carpets at Hollywood premieres, strolled country lanes in rural France, and graced soirees at the White House. Stylists, actresses, and designers make the boutique a regular stop on their travels. (Just ask Tilda Swinton where she got her mid-century earrings.) Liz and her sales assistants carefully consider your figure, coloring, lifestyle, and personality to help you choose looks you’ll love.

Xtabay Vintage has established itself as Portland's premier location for glamorous vintage clothing. Named by Elle Magazine as one of the best vintage stores in the country, our lush and glamorous setting, as well as our affordable prices make us a must-visit in Portland for collectors and shoppers alike.

Refunds and Exchanges
Item returns are offered on a case by case basis.

~As these garments are vintage, between 20 to 60 years old (or older), all items are described thoroughly and sold as-is.
~ We cannot offer refunds for fit issues, variances in monitor colors, or buyer's remorse since these things are out of our control. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Please convo us with any questions before purchasing.
~You should be familiar with the nature of vintage clothing before purchasing a vintage garment from any online venue.
~ Vintage is old and unless it happens to be deadstock with tags attached, presumably once worn and enjoyed. It will have normal small signs of wear and use which are to be considered character and not detractions.
~Our pieces are wearable and in Excellent to Excellent+ condition. Any noticeable flaws or issues will be minor and also well-described. (we do not, as a rule, offer "mint" items because how can any garment -- even one that appears to be unworn and pristine -- truly be mint if it is 20 to 60 years old?)
~We do not offer any item that we would not personally be thrilled to collect and to wear. We make every effort to disclose any noticeable flaws or issues in our condition report so you can make an informed purchase.
~We can provide additional photographs, measurements, history, or information if you convo us. We do dry clean and spot treat most items. We do steam each one out prior to posting but other pressing or cleaning needs will be left to the new owner. All items come from a smoke free boutique in Portland, Oregon.
