My experience with limeroad.com

When you are addicted to shopping and wouldn’t compromise on fashion, living in a small town is no less than a house arrest. Well consider me on a house arrest. Having been brought up in Chennai and after staying in Delhi for 4 years and hyderabad for a brief period, now I am in my hometown Erode(Tamilnadu). This town has no place to shop and let’s not even talk about fashion and Erode in the same sentence. So I guess you get a pretty good picture of what I mean! So for a person like me and I am sure for many of you out there, online shopping is the saviour. It’s my Knight in shining armor. Literally!
So I got an opportunity to shop with Limeroad.com . I literally jumped at the opportunity since I had been planning to shop from them for a while now. Their interesting scrapbooks gives an idea about how you can wear a certain item. And the best thing is they not only sell clothes and accessories, they have a wide range of home decor. So as far as the whole site is concerned, I love it.
So I wanted to buy a top for myself and I clicked the clothing section and filtered it to tops thinking it might narrow down to few things. But boy I was wrong. They have a lot of varieties to choose from. They stock a lot of good brands too. As far as variety is concerned, it won my heart!
I began searching and searching. I scrolled through every possible thing. I noticed that there were clothes of certain brands that are unknown and a little pricey. That was my only concern actually. A teeny tiny dissappointment there. But the overall pricing and discounts are average.
The last step checkout is always one hell of a ride for a person who lives in a small town. I always prefer cash on delivery and my cousin who shopped from the site last year mentioned there was no cod for my town. But I was so happy to see that they now had COD for my town too. Yay. I placed the order and they claimed to deliver it in about 5 days.
Well I did receive my order in 5 days and in perfect condition and the top fits me very well. That package did bring a smile on my face.
Overall I had a good shopping experience with LimeRoad. My only advice would be to be sure of the sizes before ordering and also zoom in well and read the description properly to know the material details.
To know what I shopped, you might have to wait as I’m planning to do an outfit post on it.
If you have shopped from the site already or planning to shop from them do give a review and share your experience.

REVIEW- Spring Break online store

Hello you lovely people. I know I might only have a few readers left now because of my inconsistency in blogging. But the thing is I am not unhappy or disheartened. I knew this would happen. I do not have the aim to commercialize my blog, because that would mean serious attention to it and few other things. So I write for myself and a few loyal readers I have. Well my birthday month begins from tomorrow(yay!). I am a sucker for birthdays. I will be turning twenty freaking three years on the 17th of september, but I am still 18! Something is wrong and perhaps I need a reality check. So even though im gonna be this old, I still get super excited for birthdays. I might not even celebrate it, but I just get excited. So I start shopping for my birthday very much in advance. I got a pretty glittery top from mango a month back for my birthday!

As I have moved to Hyderabad, I have stopped shopping much, well because shopping here sucks! I hate this place when it comes to clothes, shopping, fashion. So I generally online shop. And while I was browsing sites to sites to find whatever good I like, I found so many good things I could buy. Even though I had no agenda as to what I need to buy, I knew I wanted something which is my style and I wanted to buy ‘fall’ pieces.

The last month was perfect to shop because of the numerous sales. Few sites have sales even now. I was pretty sure I wanted to buy anything from the sale section. I also browsed only sites which actually had fashionable clothes at affordable prices. I skipped myntra and yebhi and fashion and you.
I jumped to the site Spring Break. I came to know about this site via blogger styldrv who has her collection on the site. I was pretty sure that the collection would be good as she herself had monitored the pieces and her fashion sense is brilliant. So I hopped to the sale section and started browsing. I liked two shirts and both look very similar. The only difference was the colour and the collar and the hem line. So now you would call me a fool for ordering similar things. But I loved them so much that I dint want to leave any of it. The colours are perfect for ‘fall’- scarlet and bottle green!

The best part was there was an additional 20% off scheme on sale item thing running on the site. So apart from the shirts being on off, I got an additional off of 20% on them. Yes I am lucky!

When I ordered the shirts, I knew they would look fab, but I wasn’t sure of the quality. I kind of knew that the quality would not be that good. But for the price I was paying, I frankly din’t mind.

I placed the order on 24th august at 4 PM, and I received the order on 26th august afternoon. And I dont stay in Mumbai! So the early delivery was such a good thing. Check!

Now when I received it, it was in perfect condition and decently packed. The packing was nothing fancy. Very simple transparent paper packing with spring break written on it. Check!

Then when I looked at it, the colours looked brilliant. I instantly fell in love with them. I tried them on immediately, and they fit like a dream. Check!

Now the bad part- quality. The quality of the product is really bad. Polyster with bad quality thread used for sewing which was very much visible. And on top of that the use of cheap buttons was what I disliked the most about it. The least they could do was use good quality buttons. The products originally cost 1400 INR and 1200 INR, but were available for sale at 600 INR each and I got an additional 20% off. The entire order with cash on delivery charges costed me 820 INR, which is like ridiculously cheap. If I had not bought those shirts on sale, I would have definitely returned them. The quality for the price they have originally charged is really high and they must consider amending a few things.

An instagram pic of the order.I would have an outfit post soon wearing them.

REVIEW IN A NUTSHELL:

Delivery: 5/5

Packaging: 3.5/5

Original Pricing: 1.5/5

Sale pricing:5/5

Quality:1/5

Overall Rating: 3/5 (approx)

All in all I would say, the site has very fashionable pieces. My only suggestion is that they either improve the quality of the product or lower their prices. Everything else is good. I am not sure I would shop again from the site. May be if I find something good at throw away price, I might end up buying.
