About The Shop
Gilmore Garbs is an online thrift boutique offering the good fans of Stars Hollow clothing inspired by and as seen on the show, the Gilmore Girls. If there was a high end second hand clothing shop in Stars Hollow, this would be it. Most of the pieces offered are barely worn or new old stock, meaning they were never worn! A few pieces still have their original hang tags!
Gilmore Garbs offers fans the tangible chance to get closer to their beloved "girls" by helping you dress the part. After all, the fashion of the show is a character in its own right. Whether you abfab-ly loved the fashion or found it amusing, it's undeniable that what the Gilmores wore was part of the quirky charm and visually adds to who they are. With that said, trying to put together (for example a patented Lorelai outfit) could go quite wrong for the untrained Gilmore fashioned eye; and some outfits, though fun, should not be attempted at home.
So, Gilmore Garbs is here to help, to be your Gilmore personal stylist; to sort out and replicate some inspired clothing you can wear without the rodeo police being called in, as well as offer some of the high end, as seen on the show pieces that one can happily twirl about in. I must note, the clothes also look great simply displayed on a dress form - it's like having a Lorelai and/or Rory hanging out with you right in your own home (yes I talk to my dress forms and we have coffee together). Remember, even Lorelai keeps a dressed form in her living room! Win win!
Dressing in a Gilmore-esque outfit definitely puts a little spring in your step and is a must for any Gilmore Girl fan! Whether you are preparing for a revival party, a binge-a-thon, or maybe even a date night with a possible Luke or Dean (insert Rory-boy-of-choice), Gilmore Garbs will have you covered - literally.
Clothing listed as "inspired by" are thoughtfully curated garments that, like the name says, are inspired by the fashion on the show. These garbs are often by the same designers/labels worn on the show... There are many great pieces so be sure to check them out!
Clothing listed as "as seen on the show" are matches to garments that were worn on the show - this does not mean that the garment for sale was the one actually physically the worn on the show! These make for great display pieces or for evenings standing in front of your tv watching an episode of Gilmore Girls and trying to pull a Freaky Friday.
A bit about the process:
It's been a lot of fun assembling the collections and making little Stars Hollow-esque sets to photograph the clothes against, but it also has been A LOT of work and time tracking down pieces. Though the clothing is second hand, most are high end boutique and designer labels that not only cost a pretty off the rack, but have held their value - some can even be considered vintage in a few years and many are rare finds! Their value, rarity, cost and the work/time put into getting them is reflected in the price, so please keep that in mind as to why certain things cost more. I try my best to describe everything, and give measurements and sizing opinions, something you do not always get when shopping vintage/used online which can be a headache and a disappointment; but Gilmore Garbs has you covered - literally and figuratively!
We currently do not offer returns. Please refer to descriptions, photos and the measurements to ensure the proper fit.
When "waist" measurement is given, this is for the natural waist; the narrowest part below the rib cage. Keep in mind, when measuring your size, if there needs to be extra wiggle room, especially if it is not a stretch fabric and if a garment is meant to be worn with room - so factor that into your measurements! Sizing is measured flat across one side; thus for waist and hips, you double the listed flat across measurement when comparing your measured around figure.
I hope you enjoy the shop and find something(s) you love! Be sure to follow the shop on Facebook and Instagram (links on bottom of page) for news, updates and lots of fun pictures! Ah, we appreciate your business.
See you around the quad!

The term 'as seen on' does not mean the article being offered was actually worn on the show; rather it refers that it is of similar likeness/style/brand
