And just like that, another July passes by. Is it us, or is this year going at the speed of light?! Pouring ourselves an extra big cup of coffee this Monday morning, there are 2 more days to get in those orders before we leave for summer break!

Returns without an authorization # will not be processed. Items must be returned in new and unworn condition with original tags intact to receive a full refund or exchange credit.

Return packages must be postmarked within 10 days of return authorization issuance, and a full refund for the merchandise purchase price (and applicable sales tax) will be processed within 3-5 business days of return package delivery. If items returned are found to be damaged or worn, a partial refund will be issued. If a return is received after the return authorization has expired, the refund will not be processed. Customers are responsible for return postage costs.

EXCHANGES [ US orders ] • Need to swap out your order for another size or color? Exchanges are a snap! Please contact us within 10 days of receiving your order to submit your exchange request. We'll keep the exchange request on hold for an additional 10 days. If an exchange return is received after 10 days and the exchange request is no longer available, a refund will be issued instead. If the requested item for exchange is not available, a return for refund will be processed instead. Customers are responsible for return postage costs.

// Waitlist //

Q: What does it mean if I sign up for the Waitlist?

Great news, if there is a waitlist for a specific style and colorway, that means we are in the process of making more dresses! We just need your color and size request, and will send an email when the dresses are restocked.

Q: When will the waitlist item become available again?

Our production batches are very small and need a bit of time to complete. It's difficult to pinpoint an exact date for when the dresses will be ready, but we'll do our best to finish the new batch as quickly as we can.

// Size Chart //

Apricity dresses are made in small batches and there is slight variation in fit across each batch.

If a particular batch runs big or small, the information will be detailed on each product listing and an updated size chart will be posted on that specific listing.

Q. Is there a store in Los Angeles where I can try the dresses on?

We're online based so we unfortunately do not have a brick & mortar store location to visit. We do participate in local events from time to time in the LA area and our complete event calendar will be posted on our Facebook page.

If you are able to stop by an event, please be sure to let us know what dresses + size you would like to try on and we will be sure to bring it to market.

Q: Is there a discount for bridal orders?

We offer a 15% discount off bulk orders of 10 dresses or more.

Q: Do you make custom sizes or colors?
