Delivery & Returns

Delivery

We aim to ship your order within 7 working days of purchase. UK orders can take up to 15 working days to be delivered from dispatch, but should usually arrive in 1-5 working days. If you have not received your order by the times stated please let us know as soon as possible; we will be unable to help you if more than 3 months have passed from the date of dispatch. 

We are not always able to track your order at every stage of delivery but we can try and track your order should you encounter any delays. If you still have not received your order after the normal 15 day (for UK orders) delivery period has expired, you can contact us at missfrancescaapicella@gmail.com and  we will aim to respond promptly to confirm your order status. 

Occasionally there are exceptions to this process and delivery schedule, if so this will be clearly stated on the item details.

If you have any special requests in relation to your delivery please contact us before you order.

Please note, if you are resident outside of the UK your order may be subject to import duty and taxes imposed by your country, please check with your country's terms for further details. If your order is returned due to non payment of these charges, you will be refunded upon receipt of the item, less all shipment costs and expenses incurred.
