Stand Out bold Statement with a Purpose...

My shop began out of a need for bold flattering colors that were desperately lacking in my wardrobe. Having acquired the necessary skills from design school, I set out to create 'my look'.

On that journey, I discovered and created different moods, emotions and styles. All is still work in progress, but I look on my shop and feel the different seasons and styles my design eye has taken me through.

    Hey, I'm Lynda and this is my shop...each design is inspired by an emotion, feeling or a need that I have identified. My designs are rooted in uniqueness and the 'stand-out' factor. My desire is that you love and enjoy each piece...

Last updated on May 17, 2012
Thank you for visiting my shop. I make each design once an order has been placed with the highest attention to detail and quality of construction. I use cotton fabrics from Africa called 'Ankara' which adds to the uniqueness of each piece and print.

I love making unique pieces that will be sure to stand you out in a crowd. I'm inspired by the print and they most times 'tell me' what they're going to be....;)

You will love your piece because each is inspired from the need to be free and just be you, living out loud because you can...

Accepted payment methods

PayPal is the only method of payment we currently accept.

It is not necessary to have a PayPal account to use PayPal. You can use both debit and credit cards through PayPal.

If you have questions regarding paying with PayPal, contact us.

We love Etsy and the opportunity they have afforded us.

As such we are very careful to abide by all of their TOU (Terms of use).

As such, the option of buying an item you see in our Etsy shop outside of Etsy is not available.

This is considered fee avoidance and is in direct violation of Etsy"s TOU.

Buying on Etsy through PayPal is very easy.

Just add the item to your cart and it will redirect you to PayPal where you can login and complete the transaction.

Reserves/holds are available for 24 hours.

If you need more than 24 hours please contact us to set up a non-refundable deposit and we will make a separate listing for the deposit.

Please do not reserve an item if you are not 100% sure you will purchase it. ODS also has the right to refuse a reserve request.

ODS accepts PayPal payments. Payments made by payPal will start processing right away, payPal e-checks take four days to clear so will start processing in four days.

Upon receipt of payment your order will be crafted within the promised time frame.
If your method of payment is Paypal, then I ship to the Paypal address that shows on your payment invoice. Please be sure this is current, or that you add and choose an alternate shipping address before completing payment.

Shipping methods are USPS for domestic and mail me for international orders.

Items are shipped once weekly on Mondays.

Any purchase that is paid in full by Saturday 12 noon will go out two days later on Monday, any purchase that is made after 12 noon (or if the payment is not received) will be shipped out the following Monday nine days later.

Please calculate your ETA (expected time of arrival) from the shipping date and not from the purchase date.

* * * Please expect increased wait times during major holidays * * *

Please allow:

- at least 5-7 business days from date shipped for domestic (within USA).

- at least 10-14 business days from date shipped for out of USA shipments (Canada).

- 3weeks to a Month for the Rest of the World.

* * * Business days do NOT include weekends and holidays * * *

Please note that you are responsible for all import fees, duties and taxes imposed by your country.

We will not mark a shipment as being of a lesser value than what it was purchased for in order for you to avoid customs fees associated with your particular location. If we were to do this it would compromise your insurance claim in the rare case of lost or stolen shipments.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to absolutely LOVE and ADORE your purchase! If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, contact me immediately. We will fix it. Full store credit or exchange on purchase price of standard size items (not custom size/fit - see below). Sorry, no refund on shipping charges.

* * select carefully as all sales are considered final * * *

Inquiries about exchanges for shop credit are handled on a case by case basis.

To ensure your item will fit please double-check and compare the listing measurements and your own measurements.

We will not issue a store credit for garments that do not fit as all the measurements are provided in the listing.

If you are unsure and have a question about the size or appearance of an item, contact us and we will gladly take additional measurements and answer any detailed questions you may have.

Please notify us within two days of receiving your garment if you feel it has been GROSSLY misrepresented. If you do not notify us within two days we will not be able to issue you a store credit.

Damage is considered something that requires repair, not something that will be remedied by washing, dry-cleaning, or simple spot removal.

All our items are in excellent condition, but please keep your expectations realistic. Things like pin sized holes, blemishes, standard signs from manufacturer will not be noted in the product listing.

In the case of an approved return for shop credit shipment costs will be the buyer's responsibility both ways.

The return shipment (at the buyers expense) must be made via a method of shipping that includes a tracking number and signature upon receipt. This is a PayPal requirement.

The garment will be expected to be in the exact same condition that it was in when it shipped out so if you have: modified it, altered it, stained it, torn it, separated the zipper because it was too small when you tried to zip it up (we inspect every zipper prior to shipping to ensure that is functions and is not separated), the shop credit will not be issued, the garment will be sent back to you and you will be billed for the cost of the return shipment.

Custom design or made-to-measure orders, where I alter my original design or make adjustments for your measurements to my pattern, are final sale since they are made specifically for you. However, I will do my best to fix issues should they arise.

I do accept wholesale orders. Please contact me for minimums and pricing.

Additional Policies and FAQs

When sending your measurements for custom, please be sure to take them as accurately as possible. I rely on these measurements to fit your garment. If you have any questions convo me and I can send you a measurement guide to assist if you are unsure.

***All custom request requiring new designs and/or changes in fabric are subject to slight design changes and/or modifications to construction.
