My Shopping Experience With Jabong.com!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 11th May 2015

Hello everyone!

This post is going to be about my very smooth shopping experience with www.jabong.com! If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I’m a complete online shopping buff. You can sit in your pyjamas, sipping wine, browsing through their unending collection of awesome stuff and have it delivered in a matter of a few days!

Jabong1

The first and the foremost thing that I absolutely dig about Jabong is that they offer an endless array of clothes, shoes, bags, makeup, perfumes et al. Likewise for the darker sex! You’re bound to find something you fancy due to the sheer volume of products they stock. But fret not, they make sure that you’re not drowned with the variety of options, instead, they have made it much, much easier than many other websites to browse through exactly what you need with their filters. You can customise your search with user-friendly filters like gender, size, colour, type, brand etc.

Jabong2

The products were packed securely in a plastic bag with undamaged shoes in their respective boxes inside!

I had ordered a pair of black ankle booties first, but unfortunately due to incorrect size, I had to return them. I loved how their customer service team was quick to respond even at odd hours of the day to assist me with any query I had about my order. They made sure I felt safe and that I received my due credits in time to successfully place my order again.

Jabong5

This time, I ordered one pair of carrot peep toe block heels and another pair of houndstooth pumps, both by the brand “My Foot”. They arrived within two days of placing the order and I was delighted to receive them so promptly!

Jabong3

Finalising on a product is made much easier on the website with 6-8 clear pictures of the product displayed with an option to zoom in. I love these carrot colored peep toe heels. They have a heel height of 5 inches and seem sturdy and great value for money.

Jabong4

These houndstooth pumps stole my heart as soon as I saw them! They have a heel height of 4.5 inches and are surprisingly very comfortable!

Jabong usually has incredible offers going on and they keep you updated with any new lucrative deals through text messages so you don’t miss out on any. Being an online shopping addict, this has proven to be useful a lot of times!

Overall, I had a lovely shopping experience with Jabong and will most definitely be a returning customer on the regular. I suggest you all to give the website a quick browse through so you can get an idea of what you’ll find. Though, I am sure you wont leave the website empty cart-ed! 😛

You can score some pretty great deals through their mobile app as well. Get it HERE

I hope this post was helpful to you! 🙂

HUGE SAROJINI NAGAR CLOTHES HAUL!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 13th April 2014

Hello everyone!

Sarojini Nagar hauls are my favorite! You can find amazing clothes at throw away prices! Its almost unbelievable! I will be showing you what I got from Sarojini recently. This huge haul is a result of a few different trips to Sarojini. Also, I went to Sarojini on a Monday! The market stays closed on Mondays but when I went for the first time, I found that the majority of shops were open. There are also bundles of clothes on the floor and the sellers shouting 3 for 100 or 10 rupees each! Cant believe it right? However, it takes a lot of effort and time to rummage through the endless bundles and find a few things you may like. But, it is definitely worth it because I sure found some very interesting pieces!

I also bought shoes, bags and jewelry but I plan to do a separate shoe haul and another accessories haul, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Let’s start with what I bought on a “regular” day :

Image

Yellow and Hot Pink Button Downs with Collar Studs – Rs. 175/- each

Image

Peplum Shirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Blue and White Top – Rs. 150/-

Image

Black and White Striped Shirt with Skull Buttons – Rs. 150/-

Image

Coral Shirt with Gold Studs – Rs. 200/-

Image

Blue Cold Shoulder Top with Collar Studs – Rs. 200/-

Image

Green Sequined Crop T-Shirt – Rs. 150/-

Image

Black T-Shirt with Gold Studs – Rs. 150/-

Image

Corset – Rs. 150/-

Image

Lace Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Burgundy Hi-Low Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Gold Sequinned Skirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Camouflage Shirt – Rs. 200/-

Image

Grey Bodycon Dress – Rs. 200/-

And now for the really fun part!

Image

Image

Image

Image

All of these 4 were only Rs. 50/- each!

Image

Sheer Maxi Skirt – Rs. 35/-

Image

Green Cropped Top – Rs. 35/-

Image

Sheer Hi-Low Skirt – Rs. 35/- I intend to cut the black ruffles off.

Image

Silver One Shoulder Dress – Rs. 10/-

Image

Shirt – Rs. 10/-

Image

Grey Shirt Jacket – Rs. 10/-

Image

Animal Print Top – Rs. 10/-

Unbelievable right? You have to remember that some of these clothes may be used/worn previously. Please wash them thoroughly before wearing. They may not fit well or need some altering but then again it is not a huge loss even if they don’t!

This is it for my clothes haul. A shoe haul and an accessories haul is going to be up soon!

Please go to the “Outfits Of The Day” category to see these clothes in action!

If you live in New Delhi and you haven’t heard about “The” Sarojini Nagar Market, you are living under a rock!

For those of you lesser known, it is a place of joy! ( For Shopaholics ) A place that sells export surplus at throwaway prices.

These are items that may have been left behind during shipping or may have been rejected by brands due to little to very minor imperfections that you probably will not even be able to detect.

Here are some of the items that I picked up and loved! ❤

This hot pink top was bought for Rs. 200 ( $3.26* )

Image

Hi-Low ( Mullet ) Skull Printed Dress – Rs. 400 ( $6.51* )

Image

Image

Red and Animal Print Flats ( On Sale ) – Rs. 400 ( $6.51* )

Image

Red Satin Studded Pumps ( On Sale ) – Rs. 250 ( $4.07* )

So this is it for my haul. I love whatever I found to bits!

Now I will share with you some of my tips and tricks to shop wisely at markets like these :

1.  ALWAYS carry cash! Flea market sellers do not accept credit cards. There are some showrooms as well that may accept credit cards but it is always safer to carry cash. And, carry notes in small denominations of Rs. 10, 20, 50, 100.

2. Put your bargaining skills to test. The seller will usually start with a price of his choice. Quote half of that and then you can fix the deal somewhere in the middle,

3. Be a good negotiator.

4. Have patience. There will be many duds but to find the gems you will have to keep digging.

5. Keep an open mind. You will usually end up buying things that you did not even think about getting.

6. Be reasonable with yourself. It is easy to lose your mind and be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of choice. Examine each item and ask yourself if you really see yourself wearing it. Don’t just buy everything!

7. Check! Check! Check! Check each item you are willing to purchase for holes, cuts, stains etc. Sometimes they also stock used items for sale. Make sure you check whatever you purchase inside out. If there is a small stain that you are willing to compromise with, you can usually ask for a better deal.

8. DO NOT go on the weekends. It is so crowded that you probably will not be able to see things you like anyway!

9. Go during the morning hours as the sellers are usually very superstitious about their first income of the day. They believe the whole day’s business depends upon how good/bad their first income of the day is. So, they are willing to let go of items at a cheaper rate.

10. Carry a big cloth bag and stuff your things in it. The sellers will give you tiny plastic bags and if you don’t have your own big bag you will find yourself trying hard to manage several little bags.

11. Take care of your belongings. In places like these, there are many instances of pick-pocketing, stealing etc. So, make sure all your cash / phone etc are stored in a zip lock bag chained to your body.

12. Look for trendy items. Sarojini Nagar Market is famous for selling on-trend pieces for unbeatable prices.

13. Take a person you trust along with yourself to help you make better decisions. But, remember to take someone whose choice matches yours or you may end up regretting bringing that person.

14. Have an idea of your shape and body. There are no trying rooms so try on what you can over your clothes and ask your friend to take your picture so you can see how it looks on you.

15. Do not even think of wearing heels. Wear something very comfortable. There will be a lot of walking and rummaging through stuff so make sure you are wearing something you feel free in.

16. The market usually opens at around 10:30 a.m -11:00 a.m and closes at 8:30 p.m – 9:00 p.m. It is closed on Mondays.

I hope you enjoyed this post.
