Returns and exchange details
All merchandise is sold “as is” with no returns or refunds. My items shall be accurately described, pictured and measured to the best of my ability. Additional photos and conversations before purchase are always welcome! We will be happy to spend any amount of time with you before your purchase so you will be comfortable with your new treasure, eliminating any need for a return. If you purchase vintage you must understand these items can be up to 100 years old, may have normal wear & tear, and flaws,rips, spots,etc. You are purchasing them regardless of these flaws. If you are a true vintage aficionado you understand and accept this. As there are no returns for any reason. Newly made gowns may have loose or missing beads. This is not intentional. Measurements of gowns are made with the item laying flat from side seam to side seam. Do not order gowns that are too small for you, vintage items can easily be taken in, but not as easily taken out. It can be complicated to camouflage old seams. There are ways to do it, but an experienced seamstress might be needed. Being in the Vintage and Bridal business for many years I have vast experience with these issues, you or your seamstress can always contact me w/ questions or concerns before your purchase and you will be honestly answered.
As with most Formalwear and Bridal fashions, alterations are usually need to customize the general sizing & measurements gowns are made in, for a perfect fit. Please understand that although precise and standardized procedures are followed in order to size each garment, there is still the chance that additional alterations may be needed to be done locally. This is not an acceptable reason for returning a custom item.
When purchasing a custom dress it is the buyers responsibility to know if a particular style or silhouette will be complimentary to their body type. It is not the sellers responsibility. Not liking how a gown looks on you after the purchase is not a reason to ask for a return. Be sure of your purchase as I DO NOT HAVE RETURNS FOR ANY REASON. I have fulfilled my agreement by making the gown for you to the best of my ability. Every one's unique body styles and issues are different. All clothing is made for the most part in generalities- size proportions are general. This is why all wedding gowns and formal wear needs to be altered- to nip in and take out in particular to the individuals body IN PERSON. So count on having some kind of alterations when you have your gown in person. Very few people are the perfect size 8! This is the way it is at all Bridal Boutiques. I am never responsible for alteration costs, as these can vary widely according to your local. I have no control over what your local person charges, or why they may suggest the need for something done with your item. These costs are yours- keep in mind you will need alterations even with custom made dresses -as custom dress are made in general pattern sizing.
You are most welcome to ask me any questions about this as I have seen most everything! Age,condition, fabric content and decriptive information is an opinion only. Most garments we carry have been previously owned and worn. Vintage and antique clothing is never showroom new. Significant flaws that we beleive affect appearance, wearablity or value will be mentioned-minor flaws including sucessful repairs or signs of wearibilty or are only visible upon close inspection will be deemed insignificant flaws as we beleive they do not significantly affect the appearance of the item. Soil, wrinkles, or anythihng that can be remedied by cleaning are not considered flaws. Condition assessments are relative to the age of the garment. Laundering & cleaning may be necessary before using items. Color may be slightly different as computer monitors are different.DO NOT BUY VINTAGE IF YOU WANT PERFECT, YOU MUST EMBRACE THE THOUGHT THAT YOUR ITEM IS 20 OR MORE YEARS OLD, and deal with imperfections.

The Jewelry we offer, unless otherwise noted, are of “costume jewelry” quality. I am not a jeweler and cannot offer specialized information. Prices are accordingly.

Vintage Shoes offered will note any sizing shown on the shoes, but these can be deceiving as vintage sizing and European sizing is different from contemporary sizing. I will note any measurements that could be helpful to you.

Any other alterations or considerations differing from these policies will be handled on an individual basis, and are not guaranteed.
