An item in my shopping cart is now sold out. Why did this happen?
Unfortunately items placed in your shopping cart are not held or reserved until your order is complete. If you find something you like, we recommend purchasing it as quickly as possible to avoid losing out on competition from other shoppers online and in the physical boutiques.
