WELCOME
:

At Stated Style we want to help you express yourself, providing unique and special pieces so your outer vision will match your inner one. If you are interested in an item but stumped on how to integrate it into your wardrobe, drop us a line and we will do our best to provide styling tips!

WE LOVE VINTAGE!

However, the item you are purchasing is OLD and in most cases pre-worn. Many of these vintage items are delicate or even fragile and require care in wear, use and upkeep. If you are looking for an item that can be vigorously used, please purchase a new item. The damage caused by use is solely the responsibility of the owner and we do not give refunds based on damage caused after shipment.


THE POLICY OF KINDNESS:


Above all policies, it is the policy of KINDNESS we take most seriously. We are committed to treating all people with respect and to communicate in a kind manner. By purchasing an item with Stated Style you are making a contract to follow this policy and interact with kindness. At Stated Style we sell beautiful things with the goal of pleasing our customers. But, ultimately we sell things and at Stated Style the acquisition of things in no way is a trade off for compassion, kindness and politeness.


As a buyer at Stated Style we expect that you will ask questions, not accuse, inquire for information before jumping to conclusions, using a tone in all communications with Stated Style that reflects mutual respect. We will do our best to address your concern and find a mutually considerate resolution.

We reserve the right to refuse service.


Life is simply too short.

Additional policies and FAQs
PHOTOS:


The pictures throughout the listings feature outfits, meant to inspire not to mislead. The listings are for the item stated in the listing. Accessories, shoes, belts, etc. are not included unless specified in the listing.

Crinoline and enhancements are sometimes used in photos but are also not included. 

We sometimes pin our garments onto our dress forms. It is too hard to have every size form for every ensemble. We pin these items in order to show the innate design that is frequently hidden when on a hanger. We spend a good amount of time studying a piece before we photograph, to be sure our presentation of the piece best reflects the design.


In a perfect world we would take all photos in natural lighting and this lighting would illuminate the colors and design perfectly. While we understand you want to see a piece under certain conditions, at this time we are unable to fulfill the request for special photos.

Computer monitors differ and color cannot always be judged by your monitor. If you need specific description of a color let us know and we will do our best!

We provide measurements so you can know the exact size of an item. For handbags, in order to visualize proportions, we recommend marking the measurement on paper and adding a string for the drop. Then use this paper to view size and fit in a mirror.

Please use measurements rather than stated sizes to determine fit. Know your measurements and evaluate fit allowing room for your body. Measurements provided are of the item, not you, so leave some wiggle room, unless otherwise stated in the listing. Measurements are taken flat so double when appropriate.



AUTHENTICITY:

We realize it is hard to know and have purchased many fakes over the last decade.


WE GUARANTEE THE ITEM YOU ARE PURCHASING IS 100% AUTHENTIC.

While we guarantee authenticity we do not consider it our responsibility to prove authenticity.

We have been studying, collecting and reselling for 10 years on Etsy as well as other selling platforms. We are experienced at authentication from years of research. When in doubt we use an authentication service.

There are numerous authentication services considered experts by eBay and PayPal. For extra reassurance, contact them to authenticate before or after a purchase.


We recommend buyers be somewhat familiar with authentication. Knowledge will increase enjoyment. You can read about authentication on many websites, eBay has entire sections devoted to authenticity help of all designer brands.

We are human and in the unlikely event of a mistake, please send proof from an approved authentication service and we will gladly refund the purchase price, shipping and the fees for authentication, immediately upon the return of the bag in the same condition.
