Refund policy.


Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

However, we are strict on terms of exchanging when it comes to our vintage pieces. 

Vintage clothing is a generic term for garments originating from a previous era. The phrase is also used in connection with a retail outlet, e.g. in vintage clothing store. Today vintage dressing encompasses choosing accessories, mixing vintage garments with new, as well as creating an ensemble of various styles and periods. Vintage clothes typically sell at low prices for high end named brands. 

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that it was received in. It must also be in the original packaging.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. We do not accept returns on swimwear, underwear and gift cards.

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted:
× Any item not in its original condition, is damaged, or missing parts for reasons not due to our error
× Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery

Our returns policy is in addition to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law.


Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email or contact you via phone to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. This decision will be based on the cause of the issue and/or extent of damage to your product. Refunds are not granted for change of mind. Nor are they granted for incorrect sizing, we do however, offer a store credit to the value of your original product purchased if you purchased the wrong size.

SHALEX STUDIO does not take responsibility for damage inflicted upon orders during the shipping process. We will not provide refunds or exchanges for items damaged during delivery as we do not have control of Australia Post’s handling methods.

There are shipping insurance options, like Extra Cover, which provides you with cover for the value of your item (up to $5,000) should your item become damaged or lost whilst being carried by Australia Post.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment within a certain amount of days.

Late or missing refunds.

If you haven’t received your refund yet, first check your bank account. Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.

Next, contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted. If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at or phone us at landline.

Sale items.

Only regular priced items may be refunded, unfortunately, sale items are exempt from refunds. While you may not obtain a refund, you may be eligible for a store credit.
