What is considered normal wear for vintage clothing?

Normal wear is wear that does not detract from the appearance or wear-ability of an item. This includes some minor fading due to age & washing, a few unnoticeable loose sequins/beads, or slight wear to the edges of the items. What you will NOT find on our products are seam separations, missing buttons, pilling, stains or other flaws that affect its wear-ability. We meticulously inspect each item multiple times and any flaws will be professionally repaired by a seamstress, for example loose seams, buttons or elastic, to ensure the item is free from defects. Any flaws beyond minor normal wear will be stated in the item’s description. 

Will certain items be restocked? 

As we are a predominately a vintage clothing website, each item is one-of-a-kind vintage find. However, we always try our best to restock similar item. If there is something you absolutely love, please feel free to email us and we will see what we can do to find a similar piece especially for you.
