Website, other than rental orders as set forth in this Agreement, is subject in all respects to our

Website Terms and Conditions of Use available at Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy at Privacy, as such terms may change from time to time.

Upon Your order for a Product, You hereby authorize us to charge Your credit card for the Rental Fee. We will charge Your credit card the amount of the Rental Fee immediately upon Your rental order. A reservation of a Product on our Website is an order for the rental of that Product, regardless of how far in advance that Product is reserved. In addition, at the time of Your order of a Product, You hereby authorize Dolled N’ Dressed to charge Your credit card for the entire original retail value of the Product (when new) set forth on the Website. Rental Fees exclude all federal, provincial and local taxes, HST, fees, customs, duties, levies and other governmental assessments, all of which shall be paid by You directly or, if paid by Dolled N’ Dressed, shall be paid by You to Dolled N’ Dressed in connection with Your order for the rental.

3.  OUR COMMITMENTS TO YOU

3.1 Delivery to You. We will deliver the Products You ordered, including the specified size, colour and design, on or before the date for which You ordered them, except to the extent we informed You in connection with Your order that the specific Product was not guaranteed. Products may appear different in colour and style than the photos displayed on our Website. Our liability to You for failure to deliver the Product as ordered is limited to the timely delivery of Product as ordered or a refund of the Rental Fee (excluding insurance and delivery charges) as determined by us. See Section 3.2(b) below.

3.2 Guarantees. 

  1. Return of Unworn Products Due to Size. If Your Product does not fit You, then You may return the Product to us within 24 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays) of the date you received the Product by contacting us via email or phone and returning the Product in conformance with the return procedures in section 4.3 below (a “Sizing Return”). If the return envelope is postmarked within 24 hours of receiving the Product (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays) we will then issue you a refund for the full Rental Fee (less delivery charges) of the Product, so long as the Product, in our sole discretion, has not been worn.
  2. First Rental of a Designer’s Product. In order to provide greater assurance that a Product from a new designer (i.e., one from whom You have not previously ordered a Product through Dolled N’ Dressed) will fit properly, You may opt to order a second size of the same Product at a reduced charge, for the same days for which You rent the first size of that Product (a “Backup Size”), subject to availability. In such event, the Backup Size must be returned together with the Product with which it was ordered. These terms and conditions shall apply to the Backup Size just as to any other Product, including without limitation the requirements of Section 2 and Section 4; provided that:
  3. section 3.2(a) will not apply to a Product or Backup Size unless both the Product and the

Backup Size are returned together in conformance with Sections 3.2(a) and 4; and, 

  • no credit will be issued to You for the Backup Size unless You were originally charged for it by us. We may discontinue the availability of Backup Sizes at any time.
  1. Second Styles. If You order a Product hereunder, You may also order a Second Style (at the same or lower price tier as the first Product) for a reduced rate, as set forth on our Website, for the same time period that You order the first Product; provided that the sizing guarantees and credits under this Section shall not apply. We may discontinue the availability of Second Styles at any time.

3.3 Delivery: Clean and Ready to Wear. Your Products may be ordered and shipped to You on the same day for certain orders placed by 12 p.m. in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), subject to the additional delivery charge set forth on the Website. Otherwise, all deliveries outside of the GTA will be through Dolled N’ Dressed’s  shipping partners, which may change from time to time at the Company’s discretion. The shipping method used will be at the discretion of Dolled N’ Dressed. The Products can be delivered to you until 8:00 p.m. on your rental start date. The Products will be professionally cleaned and delivered ready to wear. We dry clean and inspect each product with the utmost care, but use of the Product is at Your own risk and Dolled N’ Dressed shall not be held liable for any health-related complaints associated with a Product rented from our site.

3.4 Return Packaging. With delivery of the Product, we will provide You with a pre-paid, preaddressed envelope, as well as instructions for Your use in returning the Products to Dolled N’ Dressed (“Return Packaging”).

4.  YOUR COMMITMENTS TO US; PAYMENT OF RETAIL VALUE

4.1 Receipt of the Products. Upon delivery, You bear responsibility for the Products(s). If, however, You opt to have Your Products delivered by courier service, You agree to bear responsibility for receipt of Products shipped to the location specified at time of check out. You acknowledge that a Secure Shipping Address (defined herein) is highly recommended. A

Secure Shipping Address is defined as a location where an individual can physically receive Product(s). In the event that an unsecure shipping address is provided, Dolled N’ Dressed does not bear liability for Products left unattended. Furthermore, You acknowledge that providing anything other than a Secure Shipping Address may result in delivery delays and additional delivery fees for which Dolled N’ Dressed is not to be held liable, but You will be held liable.

4.2 Use of the Products. You agree to treat the Products with great care. You are responsible for loss, destruction or damage to the Products due to theft, disappearance, fire, major stains or any other cause, other than normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear encompasses minor stains, rips, missing beads, stuck zippers or other minor damage covered by the insurance You paid for with Your rental of the applicable Product. If You return a Product that is damaged beyond normal wear and tear, then You agree that we shall charge You, and You shall pay, for the price for repairing or replacing the Product, as determined in our discretion, up to the Retail Value for the Product.

4.3 Return of the Products and Extension Periods. You agree to return the Products to Dolled N’ Dressed in the Return Packaging provided or by dropping off in the showroom on the date set forth on the Website in connection with Your order. Return of the Product will be accomplished by You placing the Product in the Return Packaging in any appropriate Canadian Post Service mailbox or by returning it to the store’s location directly by 12 p.m. on or before the date that the Product is due. If You return the Products late or not at all, a late fee of seven and a half percent (7.5%) of the Retail Value per day will be charged to You, and You agree to pay such fees up to the Retail Value of the Product. If You lose the Return Packaging, You will be responsible for purchasing a new TRACKABLE return label from your local Canada Post Service location and for contacting Dolled N’ Dressed by phone or email letting us know you are not sending it in the original return envelope. 

4.4 Payment of Retail Value. We will not charge You for more than the Retail Value plus the Rental Value, in the aggregate, for any charges arising under this Section 4, excluding collection costs. If You pay us the full Retail Value under this Section 4 and You still possess the Product, the Product is Yours to keep, though on an “AS IS” basis without warranty of any kind. For the avoidance of doubt, the limitations of this clause shall not apply to the Rental Fee, which is charged separately from and in addition to any charges for the Retail Value pursuant to this Agreement.

4.5 Collections. If You do not pay the amounts You owe to us when due, then we will need to institute collection procedures. You agree to pay our costs of collection, including without limitation reasonable lawyers’ fees.

4.6 Removal. We reserve the right to terminate your right to rent Products from us at any time in the event of Your breach of this Agreement or for no reason or any other reason in our discretion.

4.7 Email. We will use the preferences and orders You provide on our Website to send You emails and other marketing materials for other Products. You may opt out of receiving those emails by emailing sales@dolledndressed.com.
