When Will You Get Your Order?


International Shipping Information

(Shipments Outside of the U.S.)

 Import Duty and Taxes

  • Since this is an international shipment, import duty and taxes may apply to your order. We are not able to give you a quote for import duty and taxes prior to you shipment being sent to you. We want you to realize that this can be expensive, especially in EU countries. You can estimate additional expenses with this import duty and taxes calculator
  • UPS will often prepay import duty and tax fees for you and then submit a bill to you for the fees they paid. They do this to expedite clearance of your package through customs. Please understand that these additional fees are coming from your government and are not coming from us (Children's Formal Attire). 
  • We cannot declare a reduced shipment value amount or say your order is a gift in order to lessen the import duty and taxes charged by your country. We feel doing this would be dishonest.

  • International shipping rates through UPS are quoted directly from UPS (excluding duty) based on package weight.  UPS shipments generally deliver in 2-3 business days. You can determine these costs using our "Estimated Shipping" at checkout.

Returnable vs. Non-Returnable Items

Here are some examples of items that are NOT returnable:

  • Soiled (mother’s makeup stains, baby stains, grease, food stains, etc.)
  • Permeated by tobacco or other strong odors.
  • Incomplete sets (Missing a keepsake bag, heirloom hanger, slip, bonnet, hat, etc.)
  • Damaged by customer.
  • Weather, water or sun damaged.

A refund or credit will not be issued for non returnable items. You will be notified if a return does not warrant a credit and will be given the opportunity to decide the disposition of the item(s) in question.

Return freight is generally the responsibility of you the customer unless the situation dictates otherwise.

Customers are not responsible for items damaged in shipment or other inherent flaws. Return shipping will be arranged or refunded as needed.
