Why should I pre-order?
For each collection, we order a limited quantity of each product and each size. Pre-ordering allows us to ensure you get the product that you want! If you pre-order, you are guaranteed to be able to get the product. Once our inventory is gone, it’s gone, so make sure to pre-order!
The item I wanted is out of stock. When will there be more stock?
We order in limited quantities to reduce overhead costs, so usually when an item is out of stock, it’s gone :( However, if there is enough demand for a specific product, we will bring it back. Fill out this Wishlist form for the product that you’d like to see, and be able to get notified as soon as we have more in stock! Just remember, there will be limited quantities so be sure to order them as soon as we get more.
I ordered the wrong size! What can I do?
No worries! If it hasn’t been shipped yet, just shoot us an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject like “WRONG SIZE” and let us know your name, email address you ordered with, the product and what size you need to switch it for. As long as we have the correct size in stock, we’ll make sure you get the right product.
What’s your return policy?
Our policy is that all sales are final. However, if you have a concern, please email us at email@example.com and let us know what the issue is, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
Why haven’t I received my order yet?
If it was a pre-order, the product may not be shipped out until 2-3 weeks later. If it was a regular order, you should get an email confirmation whenever your order is shipped out. If you did not receive a confirmation, make sure that you have paid (this is typically the hold up). If it has been over 4 business days since you paid and you didn’t receive a shipping confirmation email, send us an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that with covid-19, mail may take a little longer to arrive.
*note, you will receive an ORDER + PAYMENT confirmation email when your payment has been received. You will receive a separate SHIPPING confirmation email when your order has shipped!
Do you ship internationally?
Yes we do! However, we do not offer Free Shipping to our international customers. Appropriate shipping rates will be determined based on location. Please email us with any questions!
What sizes do you offer?
At this time, we only have sizes Small, Medium, and Large due to our limited order quantities. We do plan to expand our size offerings in future collections, and may bring back previous designs in a wider array of sizes!
