I am a shopaholic. Did you know that? I’m sure you did. But of course, like most shopaholics, my finances don’t allow me to explore my tastes and my wishlists fully. Which is why, Like mort shopaholics in this situation, I shop the sales.
Now since I am also a claustrophobic shopaholic, I usually try to make it to stores on the very first day of the sale. In fact I am literally on every shop’s mailing list just to get a pre announcement so that I can make it to the sale faster and get stuff more easily and without the rush and fuss of people pushing and shoving to grab the last little silver metallic dress all the while surrounding me. It totally gives me breathing issues and i leave the store before buying a single thing.
So I’ve recently taken to online shopping. And in my quest to find stores that not only ship to India but also stores based in India, I came across quite a few good sites. One of those sites is Qvendo.
Yeah I know it is difficult to pronounce. But like most things luxury, that is always the case, Qvendo, my dear readers, is an online luxury private shopping club. It has amazing offers on designer goods and high street labels and has super fast delivery. Isn't that amazing?
I am a member of Indiblogger as you can see from the badge on the side and Qvendo right now have a challenge, a contest of sorts, that asks you to make a list of things that I can buy for 50,000 from their site. So here i go, get ready and be warned, I'm about to unleash (literally) the inner shopaholic in me.
Now I’d, as always, like to start with one of my favourite colours or rather materials. And if you are a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know what it is.
The number one favourite that Immediately caught my eye was this beautiful Armani Jeans blouse. Androgyny is a massive trend and me being the tomboy that I am, I find myself totally at home with this trend. Of course it can me made to look feminine as well but I’ll be going with keeping it as masculine as possible. I’ll probably wear it with my hair up in a bun (nothing new there) and with a pair of sunglasses sexy chic is mine for the day.
Now lets go with a little statement piece. Something that reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the city. Just look at this seriously flamboyant Schumacher Belt. it’s titled nature and rightfully so, it allows me to tap into my inner leo nature of being regal and flamboyant. I can guarantee walking into any room and having all eyes on me with this thing on.
I kept browsing and realized that I hadn’t chosen a single thing for my boyfriend. Even though this is just a wishlist, I was feeling very guilty. So i went ahead with the safest colour choice, Black. I think that this is pretty good choice, don’t you. It’s the kinda shirt that makes those male deodrant adverts look possible. And with almost 50% discount, this Valentino shirt is a steal.
Browsing through again, this top, a printed bias top from Calvin Klein, is something that is totally my style. Pair it up with a simple pair of beige denims, a pair of wedges and I’m good to go.
GIrlie is not my style, It is something that petite delicate girls can pull of, not someone like me who climbs trees to steal mangoes and would love to race down the street just for fun. But i do need a feminine touch in my wardrobe here and there. If not to make myself happy atleast to fit society’s standards of girlie without compromising my style. So these things fir right into that category. I love this yellow dress from Calvin Klein. The boxy pleats give it the girlie feel but the yellow colour prevents it from being overly girlie. And it being cotton and now some flowy material makes it all the more better. And to add to the colour blocking trend, I’d pair this up with this BRIGHT fuschia clutch from flip flop.
Another girlie piece, let’s just say I got inspired because of the pink. This Calvin Klein top is so casual, so comfy looking that I can just feel myself lounging in a cafe somewhere while wearing it.
Here is another for the girlie list. The cut and flow make it girlie but the colour of the dress makes it look so, In my humble opinion, European Chic. This grey dress is from flipflop. Another one from Flipflop is this dress. It’s a lovely whale blue, almost muted purple, dress and purple being my one of my favourite colours, i naturally gravitated towards the closest thing. And last but not the least, this muted antique pink pair of pumps from fornarina.
So the total amount came to about 49,990. Gah, I’ve managed not to spend 100 bucks. Thats a new thing for me. So not only has Qvendo made me save 100 bucks (virtually) it has also made me save almost 50% on these things because I bought from them.
I like this website. It making the shopaholic in me feel like she’s saving a lot of cash.
I’ve totally enjoyed myself doing this blog post. And I’m kinda happy that If i have an important party or something to attend and nothing to wear i can just shop this site for labels that i can get for almost as much as 50% discount. I’d suggest that you guys sign up too.
GO ahead, enjoy yourself in Qvendo.
