We ask our Fashionistas to only list items that they know others would love to own. If you wouldn't be happy with the quality of the piece, this is not the right place to list it.

Do you check my items before publishing my listing?

When you load your item up for sale, you will see it move to the "Pending" area. Each day, we review the new items for sale before posting them on the site to ensure that the item is in great condition and there are no discrepancies between the description and the pictures.

How are postage costs calculated?

We prefer to use Express Registered Post, because we know how exciting it is waiting for your parcel to arrive in the mail. You can fit most items into an Registered Express Post envelope or 3 kg satchel which costs $11.30 to send anywhere within Australia. The seller must select which size postage bag is required when listing their item. The buyer then has the option of what kind of postage. The buyer pays for shipping at checkout.

International buyers similarly pay a flat fee for $24 for regular Registered Express Post (which can take up to 10 days depending on the destination country) but are responsible for any import duties/ taxes imposed by their country.

We ask all our sellers to update the Australia Post tracking number once item has been posted. You can locate this information by going to “My Closet” and clicking on the item you would like to track. Your tracking number will be listed there.

Style is a global thing, darling! We are happy to sell to International buyers provided they are happy to wait for their package to arrive. International buyers may sometimes wait for their parcels for up to two weeks, depending on their country. International Registered Express Post has a fee of $24, and the buyer is responsible for any import duties or taxed imposed by their country.
