Posh Girl Vintage clothing store is family owned & operated in beautiful Southern California. We sell on-line only. We have no brick & mortar store at this time. Our family has a long history in the clothing business. You could say it's in our blood. Mother, daughter & grandmother have all worked in the clothing & entertainment industry since the early 1950's. Our family owned 2 high end fashion boutiques in Newport Beach & Laguna Beach California during the 70's & 80's. My grandmother was the head buyer for 2 major department stores in Newport Beach. One being Richard's during the 50's, 60's & 70's, and interior designer for John Wayne and other high profile people in and around Balboa Island.
We love well made & beautifully designed clothing of any age but here we prefer vintage clothing & adore vintage lingerie. We carry vintage clothing for kids, men, & women. Designers & unknown labels are both in our collection as long as they meet our standards of style & quality.
After shopping on-line for vintage clothing I realized what I wanted was not on the web. I found either dirty thrift store quality clothes with really poorly designed websites, or really expensive museum quality clothing. So I set out to build Posh Girl Vintage clothing store. My goal was to build an on-line store that was modern & easy to use with great unique wearable quality vintage clothing at a fair price & honest service.
We have a bit of an obsession with really pretty vintage dresses, especially informal vintage wedding dresses like Audrey Hepburn would wear. So PGV reflects that. We sell vintage clothing from the 1920's to the 1970's, and a few pieces from the 80's that are really cute. The 20's, 30's ,50's, 60's, & 70's are our favorite decades! Formal & cocktail gowns, and vintage prom dresses, & 70's bohemian rich hippie style are also our specialties.
For our vintage wedding dresses we mainly offer dresses from the 50's & 60's but occasionally we'll find special dresses from the 20's, 40's, & 70's that are too pretty to pass up. We just love the tea length wedding dress with a full skirt and fitted bodice! So feminine and classic! Audrey Hepburn & Elizabeth Taylor is our inspiration.
If you love quality clothing then you know that sometimes there are those clothes that have a nice design or look but there's just something lacking or not quite right. Cheap fabric, badly sewn, or just not pleasing to the eye for whatever reason. You won't find those here! If we wouldn't wear it then we won't sell it!
Each item is hand picked & must pass our high standards. You won't find trashed, UN-cleaned, or UN-repaired vintage clothing here. Occasionally, If we love something enough and it has a lot of flaws we'll list it as-is in the discount rack for study or display or for someone to rework into their own creation.
We only use non toxic earth friendly cleaning products & dry cleaners on our clothing. We care about our planet and the animals on it so we recycle, eat organic, and stay away from toxic chemicals in every way we possibly can. We especially believe kids should never be exposed to toxic things so we always hand wash their clothing as much as possible with organic soaps.
Abused & foster kids, rescue animals, the environment, & Autism awareness are all very important issues to us. We donate a portion of our profits and volunteer as much as possible to these issues. Big Sisters of America, Oprah's Angel Network, New Leash On Life, Peta, are just a few of the organizations we support.
We work regular business hours Monday Through Fri and some Saturdays. We look forward to doing business with you!
