If you’re desperately seeking your ultimate headpiece for this fashionable day out, make sure to check our item processing times as while the majority of our designs may be in stock & ready to ship within 1-2 working days, others may take us a little more time to make or customise & they may also have to join our ‘custom order’ queue which can be anywhere from one day to four weeks.

As for shipping times, we put all our international orders on New Zealand Post’s courier service which has a 2-4 working day delivery target (not guarantee!) to get items to Australia.

As we stress, a delivery target is not a guaranteed delivery time & delays in post can happen, so we always suggest clients purchase their headpiece well in advance of any event it may be required for.

However, if you’re like one half of us and are notoriously ‘last minute’ &  willing to take a risk on delivery times (understanding that delays can happen and this may mean your headpiece does not arrive in time), we would suggest the absolute last date you could possibly click ‘buy now’ (assuming an item is in stock & ready to ship), would be Monday 13 March 2017. Otherwise, assuming an item is ready to dispatch within 3 working days, your deadline would be Thursday 9 March 2017.

If in doubt, please always feel free to message us before purchase & we will give you our opinion!
