About

Handmade Couture for Weddings, Portraits, Events & Holidays

♥ Mia Loren Boutique ♥
---->A women-owned, family business

We are a custom-design handmade shop, comprised of three hard-working ladies who have 40 years experience in sewing & design collectively. You will often find us listening to audiobooks about business, self development or music on Pandora. We love being a part of weddings & special occasions, and making our clients something they will love.

Aside from the business we are moms, wives and friends (and a mother-daughter(s) team!). We love the California sun, hanging out with our families and of course, sewing! Thank you for visiting our shop and making this small business possible. We love Etsy & the community of people & clients it brings.

Please take a look around, and come back often as we are always adding new designs. Don't see what you want to order? Send us a convo, and we will see what we can do. Thank you!

Shop policies

Last updated on April 1, 2016
Thank you for visiting the shop policies section of Mia Loren Boutique. We know it is quite lengthy, but please take the time to read the policies so you are a well-informed client. Many of your questions may be answered below.

{CONVOS/Etsy emails}
Convos will be returned within 1 business day. ****Please note during USA holidays it may take slightly longer. We will get to you as soon as we can, we want to chat with you!

We are blessed to be busy around here! We love our clients and are so very grateful, but this also means that we need you to order ahead of time.

Q: Why does it take so long to receive an order?

A: Please remember that you are commissioning us to make you a handmade item, which requires a lot of time and TLC....all of our items are made just for you after your purchase with your specific requests, colors, etc. We order fabrics, hand-cut, sew, finish, package and ship everything ourselves. There are 3 of us ladies in our business, and we work to get your order out as soon as possible. Rest assured, you are purchasing time, talent, love & care for your items/requests/event as well as the actual design. We work from our home studio, as a USA women-owned small business.

{What we actually do after you order with us}

1. Take stock of fabric/supply inventory and order if needed
2. Chat with our clients via Etsy or email with ship dates or questions
3. Make the items (cut, sew, etc.) with meticulous hands
4. Take photos of our designs, for future marketing efforts
5. Package each order carefully & include all needed info
6. Print shipping labels, send shipping info to clients, ship orders
7. Encourage feedback and photos from our clients' special days!

{HOLIDAYS}

Payment
Currently, we accept credit and debit card purchases through Etsy as well as Paypal. You do not need an account with Paypal in order to purchase. If sales tax is applicable, it will be automatically applied to your total in your cart.
Shipping
{DRESSES} USA: All dresses are sent via Fedex or UPS ground with Insurance, Tracking & Signature Required. Ground takes 4-9 business days to be received (depending on how far you live from Southern California).

{MENS' & BOYS' ACCESSORIES} USA: All men/boys' accessories are sent via USPS Priority Mail with Insurance & Tracking. USPS Priority mail takes 3-5 business days to be received (depending how far you live from Southern California).

We insure every single order. Why? If for some reason your package is damaged or lost, we will be able to recoup the cost and make it right for you. We don't walk away from responsibility once we hand your package to a shipping company. We send thousands of packages every year and in our experience, sometimes we have to make use of the insurance. As the saying goes, "It's better to be safe than sorry" and we couldn't agree more.

Business Days do not include weekends or USA holidays.

Please note that shipping may take longer if there is severe weather, or unforeseen circumstances with the shipping company. Please order as early as you can, so time won't be an issue. We love to make sure you have your items well before you need to wear them. :)

{INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS} Outside USA: Please let us know what you would like to order, along with your shipping address so we may quote you shipping rates/companies. Outside the USA, you are responsible for any import taxes or duty fees for shipment in your country. We do not know what the cost is, please contact your local customs to inquire about import taxes & fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
{PROBLEMS WITH YOUR ORDER?}
We are very meticulous about our creations....however, if there is a problem with your item please convo us on Etsy before leaving feedback. We will work with you to remedy the issue. We are skilled sewists + designers, but we are not machines, We are human and we do err. If there is a problem, please send a convo/email right away about it. We will ask for photos if there is an issue with your item for our records.

{IMMEDIATE CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS}
If you find that you have ordered by mistake, or for some reason do not need your order, please send us a note about the issue immediately.

We go to work right away, making sure supplies for orders are ready or are being purchased. If we have already purchased the supplies for your order when you request a cancellation, you might be charged up to 20% of the order price if we can not return supplies purchased for your order. In this case, the purchase price less the supplies cost plus 100% of shipping will be refunded to you. This is the nature of custom commissioned work from a small design studio. We are not a large scale retail store.

{ELIGIBLE CANCELLATIONS WILL BE REFUNDED WITHIN 2 BUSINESS/BANKING DAYS}
Per Bank/Credit card policies it can take up to 3-5 business banking days to show on your account. You will receive email confirmation of a refund via Etsy messaging system.

{REPLACEMENT/EXCHANGE/RETURN POLICY}
Since each item is made custom with your specific colors, measurements, requests, we can not accept returns for a refund. If there is an issue, please let us know and we will do our very best to resolve the issue if we make a mistake. Please note that in the handmade market, "buyer's remorse" is not a valid reason to want a return.

Please understand that every effort is made to take photos that show the truest color of our items. However, due to differences in computer monitors, and human eyes we can not guarantee that a certain color will match what you are looking for.

We do not give refunds due to colors not being exact matches to what you are expecting because everything we make is custom and for your event. We realize this can be a bummer, since ordering online can feel like a risk, but WE SELL FABRIC SAMPLES :) hooray! Please order a sample if you need to see the colors in person.

Please be aware that each fabric shipment could have slight variations in color as they are dyed at the manufacturer in batches, within 2-3% shade fluctuation (however, we do not use fabrics that come in completely off-color).

We highly encourage our clients to purchase samples 3-4 months ahead of their event, to get the colors right, and save themselves frustration.


Thank you!
Mel, Sarah + Minnie

{RHINESTONE APPLIQUES}
As with all children's items always supervise to reduce choking hazards. Mia Loren Boutique will not be held liable for any incidents. We offer dresses and headbands that are made with glass rhinestones, seed beads and metal findings. Our supplier DOES NOT use Swarovski crystal (known to have trace amounts of lead) but we are giving the warning anyway. Attention California residents: Proposition 65 Warning: Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or reproductive harm. Please handle rhinestones with care, and wash your hands after handling. Do not allow items into children's mouths.
