Welcome to I Can Tell By The Moon! My name is Susanna Vittoria, I am from Italy and I have been based in Dublin, Ireland for over 15 years. I come from a literature and theatre background, and this shop represents very much a personal expression of me: it is a creatively inclusive space where many of my passions come together - from period clothing to Victorian novels, from my native Italy to France, where I spent many years growing up, via Ireland - where I now live.
From fine antique Victorian nightgowns and Edwardian corset covers to unique homewear pieces and hand-embroidered linens, every piece in the shop is hand-picked and selected with love - from one dreamer to another...
I hope you'll have fun exploring these treasures, and that you will find the vintage or antique piece of your dreams along the way. And for any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch!
What Will You Find Here?
The aesthetic of my edits tends to reflects my interests: think Victorian & Edwardian era...romantic, billowy lines, lots of lace and broderie anglaise, cotton & linen, and a dreamy palette of whites, creams and soft pastels. ...and lots of Italian pieces too, of course! Every vintage & antique item is carefully handpicked, photographed and listed by myself, and I love giving these pieces a second life - matching them to people who I know will love and treasure them for generations. Pieces are added weekly, so check back often and join the newsletter to stay updated!
Why Shop Vintage?
Buying vintage actively helps the planet, curbing fast fashion consumption. It saves beautiful and often rare clothes from ending up in a landfill. It empowers everyone (regardless of gender, age or background) to find a truly unique style voice, using imagination and personality, without being a slave to trends. (Not to mention, you will never again be seen at an event wearing the exact same thing as somebody else!)
