Returns and Exchanges

Need to return or exchange something you just received? No problem dollface! Simply read through our terms & conditions below, and of course contact me if you have any questions that aren’t answered below. While I do everything in my power to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase, please keep in mind that Ill-Gotten Gains Boutique is a small business with a big heart and may not have the same return and exchanges policies that you’ll find at bigger branded chain stores. We also comply to all current Australian Consumer Laws.

Please choose carefully when ordering on Once you have ordered the item, you are committed to the purchase. Under the Australian Consumer Law, you are only entitled to a refund in the event of a major product failure – not if you simply change your mind or you later discover that you picked the wrong colour or the item doesn’t fit.
