About FrocksnFrillsVintage

Take a step back in time and discover a whole new style

Frocks and Frills Vintage provides quality vintage clothing and accessories that date from the late 1880s to the 1980s. A premium selection of hand-picked, wearable vintage apparel and accessories that cater to modern trends. The store is stocked with one-of-a-kind items that guarantee individuality. The quality and construction of vintage garments is unmatched, with superior tailoring, fabric, and attention to detail that ensure a sophisticated appearance. Vintage gives you the quality of designer clothing at an affordable price.
Frocks and Frills Vintage was established in 2001 with a few small booths in local antique malls, then a few online boutiques that eventually blossomed into a brick and mortar shop located in Downtown Wheaton, in 2012. However, while the business is fairly new, the passion for vintage has been a lifelong journey.
"For as long as I can remember, I've been surrounded by antiques," remarks proprietor Lindsay. "My parents dealt with antiques since the 1970s. This is something that's in our blood and we just have a knack for it. Knowing the eras isn't just knowledge, it's a feeling you get when you touch and handle something vintage. You just know it."
Lindsay prides herself on providing the highest quality vintage by seeking out museum quality items, and by repairing and reviving old clothing so that it may be loved again.
"We give these clothes life. They don't always come to us in pristine condition, but we rejuvenate them so that the past can come alive."
So shed the sweat pants and hoodies and slip into something that makes you feel sexy, empowered, and unique! Whether you're wearing a 1950s nightgown or a sultry disco dress, wearing vintage allows you to embody style and a sense of personality that's lacking from today's trendy, disposable, clothing.
"Vintage has a past and it can tell a story, even if you're unaware of the history. I believe that wearing vintage carries on that story and the positive vibes of the past keep us moving forward."

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

All of our items have been expertly measured for size. Measurements in the listing have been taken by laying the garment flat and measuring the width, then doubling it. For example, a dress with a waist that measures 14'' wide would be a 28" inch waist. The measurements taken are of the garment, and not necessarily what the dress will accommodate. In order to judge your size, you should compare the measurements of my garment to a similar silhouette that fits you best. Fit will vary from person to person, depending on how tight or loosely you like to wear your clothes, and due to your height/proportions. Clothing cannot be returned or exchanged due to errors on the buyer's part, so please ask questions before purchasing, if you are unsure.

Care instructions

All of our items have been professionally cleaned before they are sent out to you. If you have a question about cleaning, don't hesitate to contact us! Most of the items have been dry-cleaned as well as hand washed with a mild detergent. Our leather and vinyl products have been cleaned with the appropriate cleaners. Most of our hats have been cleaned either by submerging them in a bath, steaming, vacuuming, brushing, or a combination of all four! We do not use any harsh chemicals to restore our items.

What color is this item?

Colors may vary on different screens. For this reason, it may be useful to view the item on your iPad, home computer, AND cellphone. Our main computer monitor has been calibrated to view as accurate as possible, however, not everyone will see our items the same way. If you have a question about color (I.e. Is this item pink or orange?) please send us a convo and I will be happy to send color sample photos for comparison.

What is your shipping policy?

Items purchased Mon - Fri ship next day. I use the most economical and safest shipping methods possible. I am not responsible for items damaged/lost after they have shipped. Please contact me for alternative shipping methods before you place an order. I always combine shipping. “Free” shipping orders ship via First Class.
International rates are calculated by location and weight. Shipping/handling charges will not be partially or fully refunded. My shipping prices include and may not be limited to insurance, rates based on region, and packing materials. Fees due to customs, taxes, or other fees incurred after item(s) have shipped are the buyer's responsibility. International rates are for First Class and do not include insurance.

What is your return/exchange policy?

All sales are final. I do not accept returns or exchanges. Please note that under no circumstance will an item be accepted for refund or exchange. If there is a problem with your order, contact me within 24 hrs of receipt. It is a buyer's responsibility to measure their body correctly and use those measurements as a guide against the given measurements. items will not be returned due to incompatible sizing. Please See "Sizing".
All items are described to the best of my ability and within my realm of knowledge. All and any flaws or issues with a garment will be disclosed in the listing. If you have questions pertaining to an item, please message me before purchasing. I will be happy to provide additional pictures and/or information.

How is item condition graded?

I rate my items based on the following scale:

Excellent - As close to perfect as possible, could have a VERY minor flaw that I will mention. (i.e. manufacturer's defect, or a missing button.)

Great - Overall condition is outstanding with the exception of a flaw(s) or defect(s). Shows minimal signs of wear. (i.e. stains, seam openings).

Good - Average condition with signs of wear and tear and some noticeable flaws. (i.e. stains, missing rhinestones, fabric pulls, etc)

Fair - Just below average condition, with very notable wear and problems. (rips, tears, stains, etc) Poor - way below average, many problems. I do not list items in this condition unless they are rare.
