What We Sell

At Adored Vintage, we sell authentic vintage clothing (garments which are at least 20 years or older), antique clothing (garments at least 80 years or older), and modern vintage inspired clothing.

Each item we sell is thoughtfully hand selected in keeping with the feminine, romantic, and spirited aesthetic of the Adored Vintage girl.

We take great care to describe all of our items to the best of our knowledge noting major flaws of vintage clothing and provide several clear photos of each of our products. However, it is important to note than when purchasing vintage clothing, you are buying something that is preloved and preworn therefore antique and vintage garments will show normal signs of wear and age.

Due to monitor color settings colors may slightly vary in person.

How We Measure Our Garments

We measure all of our garments in inches while the garment is laying flat, so some measurements you will need to double to get the circumfrence (applies to bust, waist, and hips).

A good rule of thumb is to compare the measurements to an item you already own that you like the fit of.

Most vintage clothing we sell is preloved and preworn and very rarely will we come across something in Mint Condition (nearly brand new, does not appear to have been worn at all). Vintage clothing means it is atleast 20 years or older, so they will be more fragile than new clothing, and should be worn with care. Any garment that is an antique garment (atleast 80 years or older by our standards) should be worn with absolute care and carefully and properly stored. Here are our guidelines for the condition of vintage clothing we sell.

MINT - Like new. Likely never worn or used.

EXCELLENT - Shows normal wear expected for age, but nothing easily visible.

GREAT - Shows normal wear expected for age of garment, usually easily repairable and does not detract from wear.

GOOD - Has some obvious visual problems. Garment is still wearable and flaws can be repaired.

FAIR/STUDY - These vintage clothes may have several flaws but are still wonderful for study, repurposing, or drafting a pattern.
