Sweet Disorder Vintage is the passion of owner Kate Russel. Our clientele includes fashion labels, costume designers, museums and design archives worldwide.

The name 'Sweet Disorder' comes from a poem by Robert Herrick. It perfectly captures the spirit of 'wild civility' in every garment offered by Sweet Disorder Vintage.

Delight in Disorder

BY Robert Herrick
A sweet disorder in the dress 
Kindles in clothes a wantonness; 
A lawn about the shoulders thrown 
Into a fine distraction; 
An erring lace, which here and there 
Enthrals the crimson stomacher; 
A cuff neglectful, and thereby 
Ribands to flow confusedly; 
A winning wave, deserving note, 
In the tempestuous petticoat; 
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie 
I see a wild civility: 
Do more bewitch me, than when art 
Is too precise in every part. 

Our Core Values


We are committed to bringing you heirloom quality vintage clothing. Each piece is expertly cleaned and restored when appropriate. We only sell garments in wearable condition, and occasionally extraordinary antique pieces for design inspiration.You will receive a clean fresh garment that has been expertly steamed or pressed, carefully packed and is ready to wear.


Our commuity and customers are at the core of everything we do. We are devoted to providing beautiful clothing for people of all shapes and sizes. We listen intently to all the feedback we receive and strive to always put our customers first.


We are committed to being as kind as possible to the Earth & our fellow living beings. Selling vintage is a huge part of that commitment, as we reduce waste and restore timeless treasures. We use recycled shipping materials and minimize waste whenever possible in our business processes.


Giving back is the deepest expression of gratitude. Our social commitment extends to fundraising efforts for organizations serving under privileged populations, such as the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center. We also recently auctioned a piece of antique jewelry to benefit WWF Australia's emergency bushfire response. We do not sell fur or feathers, and are phasing out leather. 

We love collaboration so if you have a great idea or organization get in touch!
