Starlets & Harlets
Starlets & Harlets is a huge Los Angeles-based online retro-and-more clothing store which began humbly as a pin up, rockabilly, burlesque, punk and Goth clothing shop on eBay, selling sexy apparel and accessories.
After not too long their sales exploded, thanks to their many loyal customers, and that helped to make them the official business that they are today; currently triple the size of their original store.
Their inventory is truly enormous. For retro ladies from slim to plus sizes, they offer hot 1950s, rockabilly and swing dresses; cheesecake modern pin up girls will love their wiggle, pencil and little black dresses and their cute, cute rompers. Love Burlesque? Not to worry! Starlets & Harlets Burlesque and Burlesque pin up section has a mind-boggling array of products from bloomers and panties to waist-cinchers, knee-high punk rock socks, pasties, bustiers and corsets, bobby socks, garters, boas, bras and much more. Fetish-wear and bondage, rockabilly thigh-highs, shoes, bags, belt buckles; you name it, they have it. And for men of all styles from rockabilly and psychobilly to punk, goth and even futurebilly, Starlets & Harlets has pomade, wife beaters, hoodies, Bettie Page button down shirts, rock shirts, skull watches, retro clothing galore.
Started with the mission of providing customers with top-notch clothing and accessories at a mere fraction of the suggested retail price, Starlets & Harlots has remained true to their principles. Visitors to their online store will see both the ‘List Price’ and the much lower ‘Sale Price’ that they will pay, which is often a discount of more than 50%. Very nice! And for deals better than their normally reduced prices, check out their ‘Final Markdowns’ page for savings of up to 80 %.
Their clothing and lingerie sizing chart is in inches and U.S. sizes though Starlets & Harlots ships both domestically and internationally, with shipping rates based on order price. Returns of unworn items in original packaging are accepted for credit within 15 days of purchase, because unfortunately a large percentage of their customers had gotten into the bad habit of returning items after one special wearing. In the event a customer wants to cancel an order before it has shipped, Starlets & Harlots offers store credit by their approval via e-mail.
First introduced online in 1999 and now also available in their eponymous Camden shop and their Lulu and Lush boutique in Old Spitalfields Market, London, FairyGothMother has items from well-known vintage designers like Velda Lauder, Ayten Gasson and Miss Croften, as well as many retro brands like Valkyrie Corsets, Kiss Me Deadly and their own Lulu and Lush collection.
The FairyGothMother corsets offered are truly gorgeous, in gothic and burlesque styles plus over bust, under bust, bridal and strapped designs, as well as their specialized line for true corset aficionados that whittle one’s waist down to nothing. Their passion for corsetry extends to wearable comfort as well as drop dead gorgeous styling, and they offer helpful guides to both choosing and caring for corsets for those new to the style. Theirs are long-term investments, which fit perfectly and are easy to adjust. As time passes each corset will gradually mold itself to its wearer, becoming a completely personalized garment.
FairyGothMother’s non-corset lingerie selection features high-glamour, burlesque and couture-boutique items from bras and knickers to bloomers to tutus and thongs.
