3 weeks till Derby Day ! October 11 2014

Information on ordering for Melbourne cup week Race days Racing.         

Spring racing s now happening everywhere .  this means I'm  flat out making all your gorgeous orders .

current production time on standard made when ordered designs  is around 9 to 12days.

 Please do not leave it till the last minute ladies thinking theres still plenty of time to order,  every year I get volume  enquiries  from ladies in the last week of October who are very disappointed to find they've left it too late. Rush orders are rarely possible during October , I work huge hours at this time of year and do try to accommodate everyone if possible , but  there does reach a point where I reach absolute maximum production capacity and cannot squeeze in another order .

Time to get your skates on ladies if your not already organised . Happy Shopping !

PS  for those with race dates later in November ( after Melbourne cup week ) I will be taking a break directly after Cup week for 2 weeks , there will be no production or despatch between 8th and 24th November .  


Update to current production timelines October 10 2014

I've received a huge amount of orders over the last week , orders being received today (10 oct ) for made when ordered pieces will  be for despatch 21 st  / 22 nd October .

thankyou

Spring carnival is in full swing now , this means I'm  flat out making all your gorgeous orders .

current production time on standard made when ordered designs  is around 10 days ( customised designs may be a little  longer depending on details )

Please note this  may increase  by a day or 2 as we get into October,. the first 2 weeks  in October are the busiest sales weeks of the year . Please do not leave it till the last minute  thinking theres still plenty of time to order,  every year I get volume  enquiries  from ladies who are very disappointed to find they've left it too late and rush orders are rarely possible during October .  I work huge hours at this time of year and do try to accommodate everyone if possible , but  there does reach a point where I reach absolute maximum production capacity and have to then turn away potential orders .

Ideally , once you've organised your outfits ,order asap to ensure your delivery for these major race dates .

For those of you in NT and WA you need to also allow for a weeks delivery from Sydney .

The start of the new season designs are now online , there will be more to follow , a bit more colour , with some ready to ship pieces over the next couple of weeks .

Finally the new website is up and running ! March 18 2014

Well , its been some time in the making but finally its ready to launch . So to all my existing customers , this should make it so much easier for you with individual listings per page , better layout, Better pics  and the ability to choose express  shipping in the cart if needed . the list goes on !  Which , for me , means  less time spent on admin and emails etc and  more time making and designing . Yay !

For all my new customers hopefully you can find me online a little easier , and you find the new store easy to navigate and enjoy looking at ( and hopefully buying) some of my gorgeous new pieces

many thanks

Julie
