Hey there, ladies!

Let's talk with some of our very first customers. 



Can you remember the first time you placed an order with TopVintage?
‘I came across TopVintage by accident really, because I was looking for retro brands. But as it turned out, you were the only seller in the Netherlands. I was pleasantly surprised that I no longer needed to order my clothes from the US. After that I simply stuck around!’

How did it feel when you got your first parcel from TopVintage?
‘The order was packed and wrapped like a present (this hasn’t changed) and delivered very quickly. So nice! I also thought that it was great that the size guide was correct. You can tell that the TopVintage ladies make the sizes guides themselves and that the garments are measured and tried on beforehand. That’s why the size I order always turns out to be the right one.’    

What is it that makes shopping at TopVintage such an enjoyable experience for you? 
‘The clothes celebrate your femininity without looking tacky. The garments accentuate your curves but at the same time they are also very elegant. This is very important to me!’

What your all-time favourite purchase from our web shop?
‘My all-time favourite purchase is my wedding dress: that’s the Monica Dress in red. We got married in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day 2013. I didn’t want a white ‘meringue’ style dress, but a beautiful red fifties style dress that I could continue to wear after my wedding day. I still wear it; both the fabric and fit are so beautiful! 

I still wear a lot of the items that I purchased from TopVintage 10 years ago. They are still beautiful. I rarely throw something out. Especially the items from certain US brands are really great quality and if you handle them with care, you’ll be able to enjoy them for a long time!’



Can you remember the first time you placed an order with TopVintage?
‘I can’t remember my very first order, it was a long time ago, haha. I do remember that I was looking for fifties style clothing. That’s how I found TopVintage. When it comes to my fashion choices, I’m from a different era. I simply love the fashion from back then!’

How does it feel to get a parcel from TopVintage?
‘Once I’ve placed an order, I can’t wait for the parcel to arrive. They are always packed like a present! And they always come with a fun goodie. Looking around my home, I can easily count twenty: key rings, mirrors, tea, magnets and much more. I do try to avoid ordering around the time that we celebrate ‘’Sinterklaas’’ in the Netherlands because that’s the time of the year that they often include chocolate in the parcels. If I eat too much of that, my beautiful dresses might not fit me anymore, haha.’

What is it that makes shopping at TopVintage such an enjoyable experience for you? 
‘I love shopping (obviously) and I simply adore the typical retro style. That’s why I simply HAVE to have certain items. There are certain pieces that I haven’t even worn yet or removed their tags (oops). But if I would run out of money, you wouldn’t be able to tell from the way I dress! I want to look fabulous, no matter what.’

What your all-time favourite purchase from our web shop?
‘There are so many items from TopVintage that I love to wear. However, my black swing dress featuring elbow length sleeves and rose embroidery at the neckline is my absolute favourite! It’s so comfy, I could even wear it in bed. I would love to wear this dress to every party or special occasion, but I won’t. Instead I wear a different TopVintage item every time. I own so many stunning items from your collection that I should take those opportunities to show them off, shouldn’t I?

Another all-time favourite is my red pencil dress with a cardigan. I actually had to take this dress in but luckily, I’m quite handy with a needle and thread, so I can make that kind of alterations myself.’



Can you remember the first time you placed an order with TopVintage?
‘Hmmm, I can’t remember my very first order from TopVintage, but then it was a very long time ago. Nowadays, I do check the website regularly. ‘

What is it that makes shopping at TopVintage such an enjoyable experience for you? ‘I think that the range of available items is awesome and I appreciate the fast delivery. Also, every order is nicely packed and comes with a small goodie. It just feels like opening a present every time! I also think it’s great that you measure the different sizes of each item. I find this very helpful and by consulting the size guide before ordering, you can almost be certain that it will fit. In those cases where I do have to return an item, it’s usually because I don’t think it looks good on me or because I imagined it differently.’

What is your all-time favourite purchase from our web shop?
‘Those are my golden pumps from Miss L-Fire. I enjoyed wearing them so much’

What is a benefit of shopping at TopVintage?
‘I find the ‘Please notify me’ button on the website so practical. It can be quite frustrating if a beautiful dress I’ve seen on the website is sold out. By using this option, I get an e-mail as soon as this item is back in stock. And once I do, I act fast.’


Can you remember the first time you placed an order with TopVintage? Or how you discovered our website? 
‘I always say that I was born in the wrong era. I simply love retro fashion! So, I guess, I was looking for websites with 1950s fashion and that’s how I found you. I always feel so beautiful when I wear this style of fashion and when I wear your clothes.’

How does it feel to get a parcel from TopVintage?
‘Getting a parcel from TopVintage is always a great experience, because the packing is done with care and attention. The items are safely wrapped in paper and they always come with a little gift. It’s such a joy to unwrap these parcels. And if by chance there are some lollipops included in the box, my kids are quick to find those. So, I never get to try them myself haha.

If I find a notice from the mailman in my letterbox, I run out to go pick up my parcel from the store! In the past I also had parcels delivered to my work and as soon as my co-workers noticed the TopVintage box they would say: “ooh Romina, is it that time again?!” :-D’

What is it that makes shopping at TopVintage such an enjoyable experience for you?
‘I feel so beautiful in your clothes! The style of clothing accentuates my curves in the right way. But it’s not so great for my wallet because I always have difficulties choosing! If I have a special occasion planned, I always go straight to your website, because I know that the sizes are good and that I’m sure to steal the show. People always notice and I always get a lot of compliments. And it really doesn’t matter if some items aren’t right for me because I know that returning and exchanging items is both easy and fast.’



What is your all-time favourite purchase from our webshop?
‘In the past I’ve bought a beautiful black and white polka dot dress for a wedding and it was a great success. And I won a winter coat with fur at the sleeves which is also one of my favourite items. I like to renew my wardrobe and I always find plenty of beautiful items in your collection to add to my own collection.’

Can you remember the first time you placed an order with TopVintage?
‘Yes, I do remember! I ordered a beautiful black dress with ruffles at the bottom. If I remember correctly, it was a Bettie Page dress.'

How did you discover TopVintage?
‘I discovered your site while I was using Google to look for 1950s style clothing. Growing up I had two young aunts that always wore the most beautiful dresses. These clothes bring back happy memories from my childhood. Personally, I like wearing swing dresses as well as pencil dresses. Basically, my entire wardrobe is inspired by the 1950s. l feel so beautiful when I wear my dresses. I also wear them when I go the supermarket and people often make positive comments like, “Wow, it’s great that you go out wearing this style of clothes!”


What is it that makes shopping at TopVintage such an enjoyable experience for you? 
‘First of all, the service and the range of available items are great. Getting one of those parcels always puts a smile on my face. The parcels are just so beautifully packed that it looks and feels like you’re getting a present. And we women do love presents. You need to treat yourself, don’t you?!’

What is your all-time favourite purchase from our web shop? 
‘I don’t really have an all-time favourite, because I think that almost every item is very beautiful. But a swing dress paired with a petticoat makes me really happy. I also take care of my clothes and I always adhere to the care instructions of a particular garment. This allows me to enjoy my purchases for many years.’
