Vintage clothes that will transform your wardrobe with flair.
We don't have many items, but all are chosen with extreme care.
If you like the look of anything on the hanger,
and I admit the photos
are not great,
you can be sure that it looks even better on the human form.
The condition of all these pieces is superb.
Please ask about details of size -(the rough sizes are English)
