The item I’m interested in looks black, but it’s called navy. What is the actual color of item?
Everyone’s computer settings are different, which can make pictures darker or lighter. If the color states navy on the website but appears to be black, it is definitely a navy dress. Please refer to product titles and descriptions for clarification on product color.
There is something I am interested in that I do not see on your website. Does Unique Vintage do special orders?
Unique Vintage does not do special orders, we only sell what is available on our website. We also do not make the dress in house, so we cannot do any alterations or make changes to the dress. They are sold as pictured on the website.
