Mac & Mia FAQ

Mac & Mia is a curated children’s clothing service on a mission to find high-quality, unique outfits for your little one. Our stylists create personalized looks for kids in sizes newborn to 10Y and deliver them right to your door. Shipping is free! No time wasted searching or shopping for those everyday special pieces that every parent craves.

What Is Mac & Mia?

How is Mac & Mia different from traditional shopping?

With Mac & Mia, dressing your child in items that reflect your personal style and passion has never been easier. Answer a few questions online about what you and your child like, then sit back and wait for your curated shipment, hand-selected by one of our stylists, to arrive. No more trips to the mall. We do the shopping for you.

Who is Mac & Mia for?

We style for girls and boys in sizes newborn to 10Y.

How does it work?

Sign up online and create a style profile for your little one. We will connect you with a personal stylist, who will hand select 8-12 unique clothing items and accessories to be shipped in your box. You pay a $20 styling fee when you request your box.

Once you receive your box, take up to five days to make your choices. Keep only what you like and send the rest back.

If you choose to keep two or more items in your shipment, your $20 styling fee will be applied to your total order. If you keep everything your box, you’ll receive a 15% discount on your total purchase.

Shipping is free both ways. You can request your next box any time—we’re not a subscription service, so you only get a box when you want one.

How much does it cost?

We carry a wide selection of quality children’s clothing in a range of prices, and your price will vary based on what you purchase. The average price point per piece for apparel is $35 and $12 for accessories. Please talk with your stylist about your budget and they will do their best to accommodate your needs. Learn more and see price examples on our pricing page.

What type of items will you send me?

Every box is unique and all of the items are handpicked, based on your style profile. We put a lot of thought and care not only into the look of each piece we carry, but also how it’s made and the lives it touches along the way. We work with you to select clothing and accessories that fit your needs.

What brands do you carry?

We carry more than 100 high-quality children’s brands, including Angel Dear, Andy and Evan, DL 1961, Egg Baby, Everbloom, Go Gently Baby, L’oved Baby, Mayoral, Milkbarn, Pink Chicken, Hatley, and Tailor Vintage.

How often can I expect to receive items?

You can request a box any time—whether it’s for a special occasion, back to school, or to restock everyday faves.

How does your sizing work?

We currently carry sizes newborn through 10Y. The brands we work with use standard children’s sizing, but please let your stylist know if your child is bigger or smaller for his or her age.

Can I request specific pieces?

It’s best to let your stylist know the types of items you’re looking for rather than requesting an exact piece. We think it’s more fun that way—and you get to be surprised with more items to love!

Payment

When will my credit card be charged?

You will be charged a $20 styling fee each time you request a box for a child. When you keep two or more items in your box, your styling fee will be applied towards your merchandise total in the form of a credit on your receipt.

As soon as your returns are received and processed at our warehouse you will be charged for the items you kept and you will receive an itemized receipt via email. If we have not been notified of your return via online checkout and it has not been postmarked within 6 business days of receipt, we will conclude that you loved everything and charge your credit card for the entire box, less the styling fee and the 15% full keep discount. Any late returns received after you are charged may be returned for Mac & Mia credit. Returned items must be in new condition with tags attached.

Does the styling fee roll over if I decide not to keep anything?

Your styling fee can only be applied to the purchase of anything in your current box. It does not roll over to your next shipment and cannot be refunded.

How does Mac & Mia credit work?

To view your Mac & Mia credit, go to your account page under “Store Credit & Gift Cards”. Credit can only be applied to your merchandise total and cannot go towards the styling fee. If you have referral credit on your account, it will be applied in the same way. You can earn referral credit by visiting this link.

Where do I add my Stylist or Sign Up code?

After you take the style quiz, you will have the option to enter your Stylist or Sign Up code in a text box below your completed profile information (name, email address, password).

Do you accept Paypal? Prepaid credit cards?

We cannot accept Paypal or prepaid credit cards as a form of payment at this time. However, we accept all other major US credit and debit card issuers.

Do you charge sales tax?

We charge sales tax to Illinois and Wisconsin residents.

Will you notify me if there’s a billing issue with my box?

If the current billing method declines when we attempt to settle your box, we’ll send you an email to notify and prompt you to update your billing information if needed. We may re-attempt to charge your card at various intervals until the amount owed is collected in full. Please note that we cannot ship you additional boxes if you have an outstanding balance on your account. Reach out to our billing team at support@macandmia.com if you have any additional questions and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Returns & Exchanges

How do returns work?

We allow a five day home try-on period to decide what you love! Returns are due back in the mail five days after your box has been delivered. Simply place the items you want to return in the prepaid return bag and take it to your preferred UPS drop-off location. If the fifth day falls on a Sunday or Holiday, please send your returns back on the following business day.

Returned items must be in new condition with tags attached.

If you need an extension, please contact your stylist or support@macandmia.com.

Can I exchange an item for a different size?

Our inventory is constantly changing, so we can’t guarantee every item will be in stock. Contact your stylist to inquire about availability if there’s an item from your box that you can’t live without. We’ll do our best to accommodate your request.

Where do I drop off returns? Will they pick up at my home?

UPS has nearly 52,000 locations nationwide where you can drop off your returns. This includes drop boxes, UPS stores, authorized shipping outlets, UPS customer centers, and UPS access points.

FIND A UPS LOCATION NEAR YOU

UPS will not pickup at your home or mailbox, but if you catch the UPS truck in your neighborhood, you can hand it off directly to the driver!

I put my returns in a USPS blue mailbox instead of taking it to UPS. What happens now?

Accidents happen! UPS partners with the U.S. Postal Service to retrieve misdirected packages daily. In most cases, the situation is corrected within 24–48 hours, but may delay the package for a day or two. If you think you put your returns in the wrong dropbox, hang tight for 24-48 hours after you sent it to see if the tracking activates and let your stylist know, or email us at support@macandmia.com.

Shipping

How does shipping work?

Shipping is free both ways via UPS. A prepaid return envelope is included in your box to send back any items you do not want to keep.

Can I track my shipment? How?

Of course! We’ll send you an email with a tracking number once your order has shipped.

How long will it take to receive my box?

Most boxes will arrive within 2–5 business days. Keep an eye on your tracking number for the most up-to-date status on when your box will be delivered.

Where do you ship?

We currently ship in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. We do not ship to APO addresses, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, or other U.S. territories at this time.

I only have a P.O. Box. Can I still get boxes?

Unfortunately, we do not accept P.O. box addresses. However, we encourage you to ship to an office address instead if your residential address is not an option.
