We are continuing our exploration of the best and coolest Etsy has to offer with the fairly new and absolutely lovely shop called Norma Jean Vintage LLC.
So far we mostly reviewed European brands and shops, so it is a real pleasure to be able to present to you an American brand for a change. Especially when it’s a vintage repro brand, which arealways near and dear to my heart.
Their name is, as already stated, Norma Jean Vintage LLC, and they hail from Arizona.
Their Etsy shop opened in 2016, and ever since, they have been booked almost solid, making their signature bespoke Hawaiian dresses and playsuits.
All their dresses are made to measure, and all the dresses I received were made for my figure and my measurements, in cotton fabrics with gorgeous and bold Hawaiian and Tiki prints.
You can also modify your order by choosing a different fabric for the dress, and they have a selection of fabrics listed in their shop.
I must admit that these were my first Hawaiian dresses, and that I had no idea what to expect. What I got were beautifully made dresses, with fantastic stitching, featuring hidden zippers and a figure hugging cut.
There may or may not also be a very excited short video of me doing a little wiggle in my red Hawaiian dress, because I was just so excited when I tried it on. I really feel like a proper bombshell every time I wear them!
Norma Jean vintage LLC have also supplied me with my first ever summer playsuit, which I have been yearning for secretly for a good while now, and even though I was somewhat sceptical at first about me, in a playsuit, once I put it on, I felt just fabulous! I plan on taking very little with me to the seaside this summer, but this playsuit is one thing I won’t be leaving home without!
As for the technical side of things- their shop is a standard Etsy shop, with very sensible categories, which is something I appreciate greatly. You won’t believe how often I just give up on a shop because I can’t make heads or tails of their categories or inner structure.
The prices themselves are extremely reasonable, especially for bespoke pieces, and their dispatch times are fast, which is another bonus.
I was also extremely pleasantly surprised with their customer support, which is handled by the owner herself. She is very pleasant and friendly, and it was a true pleasure to communicate with her.
You can find Norma Jean Vintage LLC on Etsy, Facebook, and newly also on Instagram. They are a brand and a shop definitely worth a visit, and I have a feeling that we will be hearing and seeing a lot more of them in the future!
