On Etsy since 2009

Scouring the secondhand shops of the known Universe since 1971.

I'm an American pre-loved vintage clothing seller who spends a chunk of the year in the Highlands of Scotland, and another chunk in Florida. I know, weird right? Life is funny that way. However, it has enabled me to find some serious treasures along the way.

Sifting through secondhand clothing is a bit of a legacy one is born into in my family - thanks Mom! So keen are we at the noble sport of thrifting that like some sort of sartorial truffle pig, I can pretty much smell a well-made blazer or a pair of Italian leather shoes the minute I cross the threshold of a Goodwill store. My sister and I, both alleged adults, still try and outrun each other when we go to the thrift store, each of us pushing the other out of the way so that we can be the first to get to "the good shoes."

But here's the thing. The reality is that fast fashion has really drastically altered the way we view fashion and clothing. Our culture of immediacy has inevitably leaked into the fashion industry; did you know that most people keep items of clothing they purchase from fast fashion retailers for only three years or less!? It's estimated that in the UK alone, nearly £140 million worth of clothing is thrown into landfills every year. And that's not even going into the environmental impact of fast fashion. Don't get me started on that.

By creating this shop, I'd like to contribute to changing the collective mindset about how we perceive style; to return to a practice of honing and curating one's personal style over time, not just running out and purchasing it the moment a trend appears. I'm hoping to help more people recognize the great value in the story that preloved vintage fashion tells.

To that end, the things you find in this shop have all been personally picked by yours truly. In this shop, you'll find a little bit of everything - from Western-inspired boho fringe (okay, you'll find a LOT of that - I have a bit of a THING), to high-end designer pieces that you might remember from their first time around when none of us could afford them. The bottom line? Everything in this shop, regardless of its original provenance, is here because it's unique, has character, and is fun. At the end of the day, this is supposed to be fun, right?

I love to see pieces from my shop in their new homes! Tag/follow me on Instagram! @HighlandFashionista

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take my order to arrive?

Because I alternately ship from either the UK or the USA, this tends to vary. Brexit and COVID have both had an impact on international shipping on all sides of The Pond.

While normally I find that the estimated time as listed by either the Royal Mail or USPS for your selected shipping option is not far off, these delays have been affecting customers on all corners of the globe, but particularly in the European Union. If your order is taking longer than you feel it should, I ask that you please exercise a bit of patience while the world is still in its current state. But please - If you need your order by a certain date, get in touch! It may be worth adding the shipping upgrade - I'll work with you to get our order to you ASAP!
