International Delivery.

Due to the impact on airlines and flight availability from the Covid-19 pandemic there may be delays on international orders.  Therefore we are temporarily suspending international deliveries and are currently only delivering to the UK. Please keep checking back for any updates.


Will I be charged customs and Import duties?

In most cases, any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches it’s destination country.

You may be charged for handling fees and taxes as your order passes through customs.  Any charges on a parcel must be paid by the person receiving the parcel.

Retro Petite has no control over these charges and we can’t tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to county.

It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by any charges you were not expecting.

Retro Petite will not be responsible for any handling fees and/or customs charges in any event.

Returns policy for Gatsbylady London clothing.

Gatsbylady London’s clothing are all hand embellished and take many hours to complete.  Some beads and sequins may come loose or fall off if not handled correctly, due to the nature of hand embellished items, therefore items come with spare beads attached.  Please note loss of beads cannot be treated as faulty after wearing the dress and cannot be accepted for a refund or replacement. As the garments are hand embellished, every garment isn’t 100% symmetrical and may vary between each other slightly.

On return all goods will be inspected and must meet the following criteria:


  •    All original tags must be attached
  •    All items must be returned in the same condition & packaging as they were received
  •    All items have not been worn
  •    All items are free of any odours
  •    All items must be in saleable condition

Retro Petite returns policy also applies to Gatsbylady London and Chi Chi London clothing.
