Return Policy

Returns & Refunds

What is your return policy?

  • Returns requests must be made within 48 hours of delivery confirmation of your order. 
  • Items must be in new, unused, unworn, unwashed condition. Note: items altered by stains, perfume, cigarette smoke, body odor, animal scent/hair will not be accepted as they cannot be resold. 
  • Items were not purchased using a promotional code (New customer codes ok!)
  • Items must be modern (all vintage items are considered final sale)
  • Our Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) Form must be included in your return (which we will e-mail to you to fill out when/if your order is approved)
  • Your return must be postmarked within 5 Days of receiving your RMA Form to avoid a 15% restock fee.
  • Returns are for store credit only. We do not issue refunds. 

All VINTAGE items are considered Final Sale. 

*As of July 1, 2019* We no longer offer exchanges due to high risk of sellout and popularity of our modern clothing. If you need another size/color, we suggest placing a new order for the size/color you want and send back the undesired size/color which will be treated as a return (store credit)

How to request a return of an item:

Within 48 Hours of receiving your order, e-mail us at service@adoredvintage.com to request a return of an item with SUBJECT line "Attn: Return Request". We answer emails in order of receiving them--we thank you in advance for your patience as we get to yours!

Your request email should include:

1. Your Name (that you placed the order with)

2. Your Order Number

3. What you are returning and reason for return, detailed reasons are really helpful for us!

  • With your constructive feedback, we can better assist our customers by writing more inclusive fit notes in our product descriptions, as well as our Buying Team making better purchasing decisions in the future.

Example reason: "I'd like to return this top because it's too short on me on the torso and I have a longer torso. I don't like showing my midriff, but maybe if it had adjustable straps I could make it longer"

Thank you!

Return Request Approval

We will send you our RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) form which must be printed, filled out, and included in your return parcel.

Your return must include this RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) form. We will not accept/process returns without the enclosed return merchandise authorization form.
