Chic Origins consists of rescued vintage shoes, handbags, and clothing that have a modern day style.

Chic Origins began in August of 2010 when Katherine decided she would pursue her passion of vintage and fashion. The shop has morphed into its own style focusing on shoes, handbags, coats and hats. Katherine finds most of her vintage pieces at estate sales, flea markets and thrift stores around Portland, Maine. Send her a message if you are looking for anything in particular and she can keep her eyes out!

RESERVE : We can place a reserve on items you would like for up to 48 hours.
HANDLING TIME : We try our hardest to ship out within 48 hours after payment, but your item may take up to 4 days to ship after payment. We will communicate with you if there is a chance that it should take longer.

USPS PRIORITY & STANDARD MAIL : These are our methods of shipment. US Priority mail, per USPS standards, generally arrive within 2-3 business days. US Standard mail generally within 2-8 business days. We use the discretion of which to choose depending on the day we can ship out. Message us if you would prefer Priority. Priority mail includes $50 worth of insurance.

EXPRESS : Let us know prior to purchasing if you need Express mail shipping and we will quote you the figure, and adjust the listing price to the Express rate.

HOLIDAYS/WEEKENDS : Unfortunately during peak holiday seasons and some weekends we have experienced packages being extremely delayed. Expect shipping times to take a little bit longer around these times.

INTERNATIONAL : We ship USPS First Class mail for the majority. Estimated time of arrival depends on country. Unfortunately shipping overseas comes with some caution. We have no control over damaged, late, or missing packages. This has to do with the Post Offices process in which we do not track once the packages leave our office. It is at your own risk that you purchase any items internationally because of the process of customs. We ask that you do not leave any negative feedback if it has to do with the Post Offices end of things.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS DUTIES/TAXES FEES : You are responsible for any of these fees on top of your purchases. Please check with your local PO before purchase if you are unsure of what you may be liable for, should you make an international purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS : All sales are considered final. These items are vintage so they're older and have more wear and tear. If you have any questions or concerns, please message us before purchasing so you know exactly what you are receiving. If you are truly unhappy with your purchase, message us with your explanation and we can discuss what is to happen.

NOTE - We have no responsibility to refund any part of your purchase if your package gets lost, is late, requires additional postage, or gets damaged in the process of shipment.
Additional policies and FAQs
ALL SIZING : Vintage sizing can be different than sizes today. Please refer to the measurements for the most accurate indication of how the piece will fit.

It would be best to measure a pair of shoes that fit you perfectly, and ones that haven't been worn in too much thus distorting the actual measurements. IT IS BEST TO MEASURE AGAINST A PAIR OF SHOES WITH SIMILAR HEEL HEIGHT AND TOE SHAPE for most accurate comparison.
// INSOLE - using a measuring tape, we measure inside the shoe from toe to edge of inside heel.
// BALL OF FOOT - we measure, using a measuring tape, the widest part of the bottom of the sole on the outside of the boot/shoe
// HEEL HEIGHT - we measure from the bottom of the heel to the top of the sole of the shoe
// BOOT HEIGHT - we measure starting at the bottom of the sole to the top of the boot.

WEAR & TEAR : Each piece is one of a kind, and usually previously worn. We do our best to include all flaws or damages in the description, however, because everything is vintage, expect that there will be normal wear to the item. All pieces are cleaned up and held in a clean, smoke-free environment before being delivered.

** Accessories are often shown to enhance the look of the piece, however, they are not included in the purchase.
