Things that are out of our control

Current unexpected delivery delays -* Most of the stock we have comes in from the USA and CHINA. The Current delays are the Chinese New Year Deliveries - Delays until after mid FEBRUARY.

*There have been delays to all deliverys FROM USA of up to 10 additional days on top of the minimum 7-10 days. Unfortunately we don't know how long these delays will be for and advise our customers to buy in advance. Thank you for your understanding.

Shipping to Australia is mostly from the States using USPS as per customer order and some from China where we use the EMS Express service. We use USPS First Class Shipping as our main shipper from USA to cut down costs in order to give better prices but the only sacrifice is time.
Where we would normally see stock arrive within 5-10 days opposed to FEDEX, UPS or DHL which would be 3-5 days (but the use of these faster services would mean an increase in costs). We try to absorb as much of the shipping costs and taxes to provide better prices to you, our customers.
In the past few months we have noticed delays in the arrival of stock. Initially we put it down to more customs checks here in Australia, but we have recently been informed that the American postal services has implemented stricter checks on ALL mail going in and out of the States due to  "Terrorist Warnings" so the processing centers are now being more diligent with the scanning and checking of parcels. This of course is creating a backlog and some major delays of up to 3 weeks.
We have in our terms and conditions regarding delivery of up to 4 weeks to deliver, in some extreme cases, but now there could be some semi-permenant delays of up to 3 weeks MINIMUM.
As we cannot control the speed of things we would like to apologize for ANY inconvenience this will be causing to our customers who are currently waiting for stock and also for future deliveries. We too are very concerned that we cannot provide faster service to everyone.
We can only suggest you order in advance so stock can get to you for the right season.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Made To Order Garments and Samples
Samples are non refundable or returnable as they are made to your specifics and/or request, even if garment has slight manufacture faults. These faults are due to single item manufacture and sometimes put together by hand to give you the customer an idea of what the garment will look like. We do try to make sure all your garments including samples are made to the best standards. Refunds, credits and returns for Made to Order garments apply only if there is a manufacture fault. No refunds or returns for "Change of Mind"


 How do I cancel my paid order?
You can cancel your paid order within 24 hours of the order being made. If we have receieved the money and it reflects in our account most likely we will have started to process your order. If so, we may not be able to cancel your order. We do not process any orders until all funds have been cleared so this gives you some time to amend or cancel your order. Any cancellations should be made to us ASAP. Once your order is set for processing we cannot cancel the order as your order will most likely be on its way to our Melbourne office by this time.


I placed an order and paid a few days later. The stock was available when I ordered but now it is not. What happened?

We suggest to all our customers to make payments as soon as you can because our stock is sorted out as "first come first served".

So if you delay making your payment by a few days you could loose out on your items to another paid customer.


I want to buy from you, but I don't see my country
If you would like to buy from us and your country is not listed in our sign up, it means you need pre-registration approval.
to contact us.

I wanted to order something but it is now gone!
Our clothes go fast! Only small quantities are available from each style and if you see something you like now...GRAB IT because it might be sold out by the next day. A garment can be "Out Of Stock" from as soon as a day or within the month.

I received the incorrect item/size range, what now?
We will do our best to exchange, your item/s for the correct style/size range, subject to stock availability. Where we cannot supply the identical style/size range we will offer an exchange for another item of your choice for the same value or you can choose to have a refund or credit coupon.
I purchased an item and it doesn't look like the picture.
We take extra care to provide you with adequate descriptions and images of our apparel. Please choose carefully as we do not refund customers based on this. Unless we have sent you the incorrect colour, wrong garment or faulty item we cannot refund you. We always try to make buying online easier for you by providing as much detail as possible about your purchase, although it is truly impossible to get a real life perspective on a garment when buying on the internet.
I paid for my order via Paypal and have been refunded, Why?
I f you have made a payment for an order through Paypal and we have refunded your account, this will most likely be because of a few things.
1. We don't have any of the items in stock to complete your order.
2. The total of your order is too large for us to absorb the Paypal charges on your behalf. Any orders over $500.00 are advised to be paid via       Bank Deposit
3. You are a first time customer with a large order over $500.00

 We will always contact you to let you know of any changes, out of stock items and refunds.


The Colour of the garments are not like in the photo.
Sometimes manufactures give us a general co
lour guide so you may receive a shade that is slightly different to the one shown in the photo. For Example, the photo of the garment may be a green but you receive a dark green or even monitor colours can change the colour/look of an item. The majority of the time the items are as they are in the photos. Unfortunately this is something we cannot control.


I am waiting for an order to arrive but I get notice of my order being cancelled. What Happened?

We may be going through a software upgrade and some glitches can occur. Should you receive any changes to your orders of any kind that you are unsure of please email us to find out what has happened. Some things can be rectified on the spot but we will be able to tell you if your orders are still pending or not.


I created an order and have not made a payment. How do I cancel it?
Just send us and email requesting it to be cancelled and we will amend it for you. If we do not see a payment come through for your order, it will automatically be cancelled after 3 days.

Why does it take so long to receive the stock?
We endeavour to ensure that we provide speedy service to all our customers. As we have a few different manufacturing warehouses outside
Australia we bring in the stock as per order. Some things are out of our control and therefore add to time delays in receiving your stock. Such as clearing of funds and shipping. * See below.


Online payment services such as Paypal and or Paymate have different processing times for instant transfers/credit card payments of up to 3 working days. E-Cheques can take up to 5 working days to clear.
Banks have processing times of anywhere between 3-5 working days. Weekends can mean a pause in clearing of payments too.
We will not process any orders until all funds are fully cleared.


Technical problems, local and international public holidays and shipment errors can add to time delays, so we advise our customers to order in advance and to expect that shipment can take up to 3-4 weeks. Overall the majority of our customers within
Australia do receive their goods within 10-14 working days. International customers please expect that your shipments can take a little longer as your countries postal service may have their own times and methods of shipping out their post.

For Made-To-Order items, please allow an additional 10-14 working days, do remember manufacturing can take some time. Please order in advance.

I want to Cancel and get my refund for 'Made to Order" Stock Includes Maternity/Bridal/Other' Garments.
'Made to Order' stock is manufactured to your preference and can not be cancelled. If we have already received your order specifications and payment then most likely your order is being processed for manufacturing so your order cannot be cancelled. Please email us ASAP if you need to amend or cancel your order. We will do our best to make the changes for you if possible. Returns policy applies for 'Made to Order' - see below.
