Frequently Asked Questions

What are the measurements / what size is this?

All of the listings have measurements included. Not every item has an exact size listed because often vintage items are missing size tags and vintage sizing greatly varies from modern sizing. Measurements are the way to go!

Measurements are taken with the item laying flat and are doubled where applicable. The "estimated size" is just an estimate, and vintage sizing is different than modern sizing. Please use measurements to ensure proper fit. Remember - the measurements are of the item, not of you. Leave some room for a comfortable fit. Compare the measurements to a similar item you own. This is the easiest way to be sure it will fit you well.

All measurements are in inches.

Care instructions & allergy information

Vintage items should be handled with care. Please do not wash delicate items in a washing machine or dry in a dryer.
Hand washing in cold water, dry cleaning, and professional leather/fur cleaning are recommended.

My home is completely smoke free but we do have a dog and cats.


Please follow @GoodLuxeVintage on Instagram for periodic sales! Returning customers receive a special thank you discount code with their first order.


Vintage = pre-owned. We are careful to note any flaws, but most items are pre-loved and will show signs of age & wear. If you don't love your item or find that it doesn't fit, you may return it for a refund (shipping is not refundable) within 10 business days days.

Buyer pays return shipping and returns must include a tracking number and insurance. Just send us a convo letting us know that you want to do a return and we will give you further instructions. Items marked as "on sale" are not eligible for return. Swimsuits, lingerie, and hair accessories/hats are also final sale items due to hygienic reasons.

Handmade earrings and jewelry are eligible for return if unworn / unused and returned in the same condition in which they were sold.


I'm a work from home mama also chasing after a toddler so I usually ship 2x a week. If you need your order ASAP, please send me a message and I'll let you know when I can get it shipped! Small businesses are not Amazon Prime ;) Thank you very much for your patience !

Reserving an item

I'm happy to reserve an item for serious, committed buyers. Items can be placed on reserve for 24 hours. If you need additional time, a 10% non-refundable deposit needs to be made for the desired item.

Express shipping

If you need something ASAP, let me know before you place your order. Express shipping is available for an added fee. Just send us a message telling us which item(s) you want, your zip code (or country if international), and when you need them by. We will get back to you with a shipping price and estimated delivery date.

You will need to pay for the additional shipping fee before I can send your order out.

Do you have this in another size?

Unfortunately, no. All clothing & shoe items are vintage and therefore we usually have just one of each.

Do these shoes fit true to size?

Measurements are generally included in shoe listings to help you get a better idea of how the shoe fits. I wear a US size 9 so I cannot try on any other sizes to confirm if they fit true to size.

If all else fails, rest assured that I do accept returns if something doesn't fit! Just see the return policy prior to ordering so you are familiar with the process.
