About

Combining Passion for the Planet with Artistic Expression!

It often starts with dressing up the dolls, doesn’t it? Well, actually, I really wanted a baby sister to dress up but when I realized that I was going to be the baby forever, I settled for the dolls. I also settled on myself. A burgeoning fashionista in my single digit years, my mother still gives me grief for the way I insisted changing my clothes multiple times a day. What can I say? She had the most amazing prom and bridesmaids’ gowns from the 60s for dress-up fun (which also gave me my first taste of vintage class). Also, as the youngest of many female cousins, I inherited all sorts of hand-me-downs and I adored the thrill of finding what inspired me moment to moment. From beautiful to funky to ridiculous, those big plastic bags, bursting with clothes were my treasure chests. And, as I’d realize many years later, my art. It makes perfect sense then, that I now find myself wanting to share this beauty, this art, this style and sass while pursuing a passion to live the most eco-conscious life possible.

Ready to part of the evolution? I know…I can’t wait either!

    Evolve is a small, thoughtful operation. I scour. I hand select. I fix. I measure. I wipe my brow. But then I squeal with joy at what I'm curating for you. Indeed, there’s a reasons you’ll find *love* in ev*olve*.

Returns and exchanges
Please email with specific questions about any of Evolve's inventory!

If you’re uncertain about the possible fit of a garment (not sure of the fabric’s give, etc.), or have ANY additional questions, feel free to give a shout! (But first, check out the “additional information” section below). It is Evolve’s mission to be as eco-friendly as possible, reducing our carbon footprint in every way possible, including the return process. Therefore, I want to do my best to ensure that you are wholly satisfied with your order the first time around.

Of course, it is a reality that inevitably, some garments may not be a perfect fit. Unless explicitly marked otherwise, Evolve GARMENTS may be returned (assuming that all original tags are attached and items are in the same condition as when they were shipped out) within 14 consecutive days (not business days) of shipment. (Example: Your order is placed on August 10th; your item is then shipped on August 11th; Evolve must receive it in same condition with tags no later than August 25th. ) The amount of the item will then be refunded. This excludes shipping costs to and back.

JEWELRY, HANDBAGS, HATS AND OTHER ACCESSORIES ARE ALWAYS FINAL SALE AND NON-REFUNDABLE.

Please take your time to enjoy your shopping experience. Really! I’m thrilled when I can ship you multiple items in one package versus a trail of smaller ones. (Say it with me: “We love Mother Earth!”)

Please email with ANY questions before finalizing your order.
Payment
ACCEPTED PAYMENT:
PayPal, direct checkout via Etsy, money orders and checks. (In the case of a personal check, shipment will occur once the check has cleared the bank.)

PAYPAL AND CREDIT CARDS:
Having a PayPal *account* is not necessary to purchase on Etsy via PayPal. However, you may want to consider opening a Paypal account as it is another layer in protecting your credit cards.

TO PURCHASE VIA PAYPAL WITHOUT AN ACCOUNT:
After you submit your order, click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with a credit or debit card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account. Follow the screen instructions from there.
Shipping

If paying via Paypal, your item will be shipped to the address associated with your Paypal account. If you’d like your item shipped to a different address than that provided in your Paypal account, please log in to Paypal and add the preferred address prior to payment.

All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENT:
All orders $250 and over are shipped via insured USPS Priority Mail International with tracking. First Class Mail is available for items up to $250 and weighing less than four pounds. If your order is below $250 and you would prefer USPS Priority Mail International, please contact Evolve prior to purchasing to update shipping costs.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
Due to customs fees/duties of other countries that are out of Evolve’s control, international buyers are responsible for paying their own country's customs fees/duties. All international shipping costs listed are calculated at Priority Mail International for tracking purposes. If you prefer the less expensive shipping option of First Class Mail International, please contact Evolve for information prior to purchase.

INSURANCE:
Orders above $200 will be fully insured. Insurance for items under $200 is available upon request.

SHIPMENT TIME:
1-3 business days from date of order. (Evolve is located in the U.S. Central Time Zone.)
Additional policies and FAQs
Of course I want everything to fit you perfectly! However, we all know that a size 10 varies from clothing line to clothing line. That’s why I HAND MEASURE every piece by the following guidelines:

Bust – From seam to seam, approximately 1-1.5 inch below the armhole. I often list two measurements; one of the garment laid flat and the other of the garment gently stretched for a maximum bust measurement.

Waist – From outer edge to outer edge at narrowest part of the waist area. In general, this is around 8 inches below the armhole. (Note that empire waist is generally measured closer to the ribcage.)

Hip – From seam to seam at the widest part of the hip area, approximately 9 inches below the waist or 17 inches below the armhole.

Dress or Jacket Length - From the high point of the shoulder, straight down the front to the bottom of the garment.
