LOVE these burrito wraps! I ordered two and the fit is perfect! These are really heavy fleece and are perfect for the cold winters of Chicago. One of my dogs has severe arthritis and I have trouble getting him in and out of regular sweaters. This is perfect for him since it just wraps underneath him - no leg or paw bending needed - and it's quick to get on and off.

  • Lupita

    Senior Model Extraordinaire

    Pet Peeve: Unrefined dogs barking at her. Theyre still not getting her autograph! Favorite toy: Unstuffed Fox with a missing squeeker. Favorite pastime: Going for car rides. So relaxing! Known accomplices: No one, she can get into trouble all by herself. Born in 2010, this brindle beauty has the personality of 10,000 pups. Having the need to wear clothing when the temperatures dip in the Fall, Lupita has a penchant for posing and modeling when wearing new outfits. Having made a couple of outfits, the combination of our two talents created the genesis of what was to become, LLCB (Lil Lupitas Chic Boutique). When she hits the runway for a photography session, Lupita sure knows how to strut her stuff! Woof dahling! It's so elementary!

  • Georgia Wren Oshylynn Chops

    Chief Barketing Officer

    Favorite Toy:The Cat.Favorite Pastime:Barking at the dogs on TV. Oh, never mind- Barking in General.So much fun! Favorite Food: Anything edible.Pet Peeve:The Cone of Shame.Georgia is a stunning black and white beauty that came to us in 2012. Unlike her sister, modeling is something she avoids at all costs.Georgia will wear clothing but when the camera comes out,her ears disappear and fold down like she has done something naughty.She looks more like a salty seal than a Chihuahua. This is why she is my favorite "hoodie" model.

  • Coconina Quineaux

    Junior Model, Diminutive Diva

    Favorite Toy: Her dead fox. Favorite Pastime: Playing fetch ALL day with her dead fox. Favorite food: Chicken! Weighing in under four pounds, Coco supervises while learning the modeling ropes.

Welcome to Lupita's Chic Boutique! Carefully crafted Canine Clothes at reasonable prices. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you like what you see! My handmade items are inspired by my beautiful Chihuahuas, Lupita, Georgia and Coconina. I used to live in a climate that requires that my furbabies wear clothes most of the year. It is something that you don't forget.

MY MISSION in my shop is to provide quality, functional, well fitted, canine clothes for your small dog under 20 pounds. I have found that I can accommodate bigger dog coats. Please ask!

Please remember, that I really want to make the best quality and fit for your family pet- if there are any concerns that you might have, please do not hesitate to contact me through a message in my Etsy shop.

Designer Duds for your Delightful Dog- Now that's haute!!!!




My Pledge to You:
I certify that every item is handmade by me and me alone. I am the Designer/Owner and Couturier- I do not use assistants or hire my work out. I do not rely on factory made, or mass produced items.
My designs come from my own experience, background, and ideas. I will not copy or use other designs from other designers, websites etc. I do not have time for that. However, please note that there are no copyright violations on clothing and/or animal costumes. For example, there are only so many ways you can design a lion costume - it basically comes down to an interpretation and execution of that creation from the designer.
I cannot use licensed/trademarked materials/names (fabric, fonts, patches, etc) from, (including, but not limited to), the MLB, NBA, NFL, College sports teams; companies like Disney, Pixar, Vera Bradley, Tiffany, Gucci, Adidas, Lily Pulitzer, etc. These entities paid big money to create, market and advertise their designs, logos and characters. To use them for profit through sales is not legal or ethically sound. I can't even design something that resembles a well known, copyright character "knock off" and then give it a different name. I don't want to waste time and money fighting a court battle I won't win.
Not all licensed fabrics are protected under copyright law. Under the, "First Sale Doctrine", it is allowable with the disclaimer that my products are not affiliated or associated with the original copyright owner. I will use that disclaimer when required.

*ATTENTION SELLERS: Please do not use my shop name or any combination of my shop name in your seller's shop tags and I promise I will never use yours! ; )

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is to be made immediately at the time of purchase. We accept many forms of payment: Paypal, debit, credit, and Etsy gift cards. You do not need a Paypal account for debit and credit card customers to utilize this service. It's easy! Choose the Paypal option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "pay now" button. Scroll down and you will see the option to pay with credit or debit card without having to sign up for a Paypal account.
If this form of payment does not work for you, I am willing to discuss other options with you and will work out other arrangements prior to your purchase. Please email me before you proceed with purchase.
If, after three (3) days I do not hear from you after a purchase, and no payment has been sent; I will cancel the sale to recoup my seller fees. I appreciate your business and also appreciate prompt payment.
Taxes are added into the total cost of the purchased item.
Shipping
I do not make money off shipping. That would not be right. My policy for the flat rate that I charge:
- If your item cost less to ship than what I charge, I will refund the amount overcharged to you.
- If your item costs more to ship than what I charge for shipping, I absorb the cost and will not charge the difference to you.


If your order is custom made, please give me time to carefully construct your item. Some things can't be rushed! I pay attention to detail and try to use the highest standards possible. Sometimes this takes a little longer, but I assure you, it will be well worth the wait.
Payments by e-checks will need to clear before your item is sent. This usually takes 3-5 days.

IMPORTANT- Postage time worldwide is approximately 15-25 business days, but it can quicker! PLEASE NOTE - IT CAN TAKE LONGER Some packages can take up to six weeks depending on where and how it is shipped. This is out of my control and you must understand that I am not responsible for any courier delays. The variability in shipping time is attributed and up to the efficiency of postal services.
Please let me know ahead of time if there are any specific shipping methods, packaging and address changes when you order.

Please know that I will use the sturdiest packaging possible to ship your items. What your item arrives in is a reflection on me and I take great care to preserve the same high quality I expect from myself in every facet of the sale.
I will notify you when your item ships and will keep you posted if there are any problems. I will also include a confirmation number for tracking purposes at no additional charge to you.
I ship mainly by USPS Priority mail. Please double check to make sure the address listed in your Etsy acount is the address where you want your item sent. If it is not, it is very important to notify me exactly what address you want me to use. I will always use your Etsy invoice address.


But I want it now!
That's impossible! But I do offer Express Shipping through the USPS. Please know that I will do my best to get your items to you in time.
I can use expedited shipping but want you to know that it will cost more. During the holiday months, I will have a listing for an expedited shipping upgrade.

If you order more than one item, I will combine shipping charges. Usually with flat fee rates, there will be no additional charge. One box-if it fits -> it ships.



INTERNATIONAL ORDERS-

Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Check with your country's customs office to find out what these additional costs will be before you buy.

There may be charges collected by the shipping/delivery company when you receive or pick an item up. Don't confuse them with more shipping charges.

I follow international regulations. I don't mark items below value or call them "gifts.”

In regard to shipping, please bear with me, as I have some experience shipping internationally but not a lot.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges
I will do whatever I can to make it right. Please keep in mind, if your Canine/Feline is just a puppy/kitten, there will be sizing issues until (s)he is full grown.

It is important to contact me within three days of your order for custom measurements for your custom order. Unfortunately, if I do not get these measurements within the time frame of three days after payment, I will refund your money. Whether is is buyers remorse or personal reasons for no contact, I do not like to have paid orders sit longer than a week.

ARE THERE REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES??

YES! If you aren't happy , then I am not happy. Whether it be refunds or exchanges - Please let me know why so that I can strive to be a better seller.

In addition to refunds requested by the buyer, there may be that rare time that, I, as a seller cannot make a custom order work, I reserve the right to cancel an order and refund the entire amount paid back to the seller.

Any order that I have agreed to re-do will follow the same time frame of anywhere up to 3-4 weeks to process. Only ONE re-do per item.

Please note: You must contact me within 72 hours and return the item back to me in new and unused condition. I believe in tracking numbers and request that one is provided so I can keep track of when I can expect your return to arrive.

PLEASE NOTE: If for some reason, you do not send back the item for an exchange, I will re-make the item with the clarified specifications. With all returns, I remove all the hardware to use on the new garments, leashes. If I do not have it (the returned item), I cannot replace a new item with new hardware.

All items returned to me cannot be resold because of health reasons. Any items sent from my shop has never been modeled or worn by another dog. I do use mannequins and other various measuring devices for fitting purposes.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please be sure to measure carefully!!! Use a standard tape measure. I work better using the inches measurement rather than metric. Measure 2 or 3 times just to be sure. Your pup will thank you!!! and I will too!!
Because of the custom made nature, no two items will be exactly alike. There may be slight variances. Please realize that your computer may not show the exact color of the item. However, I will try to explain the color in the description that closely relates to what it looks like in person.
D-rings are used to hook a leash to and I will use these often. I will also put adornments on a garment and trim. I will always keep in mind who I am dressing and will design accordingly.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
All items are machine washable UNLESS otherwise noted. To preserve the beauty and style of your pets item, please care for it as you would any fine garment.
DO NOT bleach and avoid ALL fabric softeners (sheets, liquids, etc.).
Any items with velcro (hook and loop tape) - secure them together before you wash it.
I use a little mesh bag to hold delicates when I place them in the washer. Using a pillowcase tied at the end will achieve the same results.
Since future care of your garment is important to me, I will include further instructions attached to the hang tag with your shipment.
For most of my custom made items, I do NOT recommend using the dryer. It would be better to lay the garment flat to dry.
When I make garments for my customers, I do not use my own pups for modeling, pictures etc. with your custom made clothes. I use measuring tapes, drafting rulers and other inanimate objects. I have ordered custom dog clothes before and then seen the same article featured on their website that their dog is wearing. I am not comfortable with that.
.
Please know that there is NOTHING that can take the place of your loving attention and supervision of your beloved pet. With D - rings it is your responsibility to judge the amount of restraint it offers to your dog. NEVER leave your pet unattended while dressed (or in Lupita's case- undressed) or on a leash.
Lil Lupita's Chic Boutique (AKA- Lupita's Chic Boutique) is not responsible for any loss or injury related to or caused directly or indirectly by the use, abuse or misuse of my products.

Since I have no assistants or hire help, please allow up to 72 hours (it usually does not take that long) for a response to messages that are sent to me. If I have a back up on orders during the busy times of the year, it is very difficult to maintain social networks and answer emails as quick as I would like to. I thank you for your patience in advance!

Please leave feedback for your purchase and by all means -please, let me know if you have any complaints or concerns- I want to make it right.
Communication is key to a great transaction!!

FEEDBACK: I will not know how your buying experience turned out without feedback or a quick message from you. Its not required but I would like to know how you felt about your order. The good, the bad, the ugly, the silly, the things that you are happy with or aren't so happy with. That is how I grow as a designer. Remember: It is my goal to provide 100% buying satisfaction in my shop. If, for any reason you are not happy, please communicate that to me. There is most often a remedy to make it right.

Yes!! I love pictures! I would love to see your beloved pet dressed up in Lupita's Chic Boutique attire.


Once again, Thank you for stopping by my shop. I hope you will find It's The Place to Go for Canine Clothes!!

Special request or instructions


Thank you once again for your order! Once I receive these measurements, I can get started.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Each item is carefully and individually wrapped. Almost like receiving a gift. Higher end items get the VIP treatment and will be sent in a decorative box for storage. It's exciting to receive a new garment/costume in the mail for your furbaby. I want the packaging to reflect that anticipation and excitement. I will double wrap each package in case the outer package gets ripped during shipment. I will include specific instructions on how to care for your garment. Each item is thoughtfully packaged and we will often use the least expensive cost and recycled, earth friendly materials to keep the expenses down for me and more importantly, for you!

Care instructions

Included with each purchase will be a detailed sheet giving you all the options on how to care for your garment. If you are concerned about the care of any item in my shop, let me know, and I will be happy to provide additional details.

Wholesale availability

I will not be able to process wholesale or drop ship requests.

Please do not request donations for my time, materials and/or service. This is something that I maintain and manage outside the business scope of my life. I believe that true altruistic behavior and acts of kindness are done anonymously.
