You are responsible for any damage to the products due to theft, fire, loss or major damage. Normal wear and tear is considered minor stains which can be removed, minor rips, missing beads or sequins. If you return a product and it is damaged beyond normal wear and tear then as per the above after we have contacted you to notify you of this you agree that we will charge you, if the item is unable to be repaired. This price RRP is at the discretion of Borrowed Boutique and guided by the popularity of the garment, it’s rarity (a collector’s piece) and if it is readily available to be repurchased.

If you return your product late we have the right to charge you a $25 late fee every day you are late up to 150% of the retail value of the dress. If you have not returned the product within 20 days of the return date your product will be considered a non-return and we will charge you the full 150% of retail value less any late fees already charged.
