  • International Shipping Policy: Spend over £55 for free delivery. All orders less than £55 will be charged £9. Delivery takes 7–9 business days.
  • International Returns Policy: 28 day returns are accepted as long as items are unwashed, unworn and unaltered.

What are the benefits of ordering from an international store?

  • Cheaper prices on international labels. Many times you can find a better price if you buy directly from the retailer rather than through a stockist here in Australia because you cut out the middleman.
  • More range. While lots of Australian retailers are fantastic in their selection, sometimes it’s just nice to roam in search of greener pastures. Trends vary quite a bit when you start to move overseas and you might even hit on a style before it makes its way here. The same goes for particular brand names. It makes sense that the best place to start looking for an international brand is through a retailer in that brand’s country of origin.
  • Take advantage of international sales. Sales time like Black Friday in the US are excellent opportunities for savvy shoppers to grab a bargain from an overseas retailer.

Stop! Before you order from an international store, check these first.

  • Have you checked the measurements? When you are buying clothes from an international fashion store you must double check the sizes. UK, EU and US sizes are all different to Australian sizes. If you are not sure, keep a tape measure handy and find the link to the ‘size chart’ on the retailer's page.
  • Have you checked the voltage? Many electrical appliances produced for overseas markets will be designed with a different voltage system in mind. Double check the requirements and get yourself a good converter, just to make sure.
  • Did you read the returns policy and do you know how much shipping will cost you? These are easy to overlook but ignore the store’s policies for shipping and returns at your peril. There’s nothing worse than paying $50 shipping for a $40 dress, except realising you have bought the wrong size and the store doesn’t do exchanges!
  • Do you know how much you are paying in Australian dollars? Shopping in a foreign currency can be very misleading, so keep an eye on the exchange rate and maybe keep an exchange site like xe.com open to help you calculate as you go.
