Shopping @ : A Review

A review of my shopping experience with, a flagship store for women.

Namaste Dear Tantu Enthusiast!

It’s been a long since I updated anything. How are you? How are you enjoying summer? Well, I am busy gulping the seasonal local fruits 😀 as we have come to the end of the season in this part of the world expecting monsoon in no time…

Online shopping is the trend of the day that makes our lives easy providing exciting shopping experiences. Internet is flooded with many online shopping sites and new shopping sites show up every day. But, not every site upholds the customer expectations. One such trending and promising online shopping site is I recently did a trial shopping with LimeRoad and today’s post is a review of my shopping experience with the same.

What is is a Flagship store for women launched on 18th October 2012 that is based in Gurgaon, Haryana, India. LimeRoad offers wide range of rare fashion products for women from head to toe including ethnic to western looks. LimeRoad also provides home and kitchen products. One can imagine the popularity that LimeRoad has gained by looking at the love of over 9.5 million fans in Facebook within a duration of 2 ½ years.

My Shopping experience with

They say, ‘How you deal with smallest things defines what actually you are’. I tried the same with and I went for the lowest price range. I bought three products in the first round. Every category showed up interesting style collections. I went for a pair of printed leggings, a printed dupatta and a canvas sling bag.

Having a glance of clothing category in LimeRoad is a visual treat. The collections are distinctive from ethnic to modern, from solids to prints and from high to budget. I decided to go for a pair of printed leggings. A pair of ash blue leggings with awesome print in white is what I chose. Guess what? The random all over print is of thread spools, buttons, shirts, bows, socks and many more beautiful motifs… How could I have not picked it???

Ash Blue Printed Leggings @ LimeRoad I read the description, care and other details in the page. Satisfied with the details and the pictures, I grabbed that cute sewer’s leggings of MRP 449 INR.

The leggings arrived home through courier within 3 days. Everything was fine but the first look at the print cautioned me about losing the print in one wash. I washed it by hand, even rubbed it. But, the print is still stable 🙂

I am so happy… I love my cute sewer’s leggings 🙂

Plush Orange Printed Dupatta By Ethnic

I was stunned looking at the beautiful dupatta collection at LimeRoad. I wanted to buy many of them. But for the trial shopping, I finalised a multi coloured floral printed crush cotton dupatta of MRP 187 INR.

Dupatta also came within 3 days of ordering. You know what? I fell in love with the richness of the colours it has. The cotton material is absorbent and feels comfortable against skin.

Dupatta is quite long than I thought. It reaches my calf muscles (!) when I wear it on one side of my shoulder and I am 5’4”tall. I have washed it and the colours have not bleeded! That’s so much one can expect for the price 187 INR!!!

Floral Finesse Printed Bag by Crafts My Dream

There are chic bags of different kinds for different occasions. I picked a sling bag of canvas material with pink-orange-black large floral print with a black handle. It costs only 300 INR!

The bag came in 3 days as well. The dimensions were as mentioned and the specifications were also matching the product description given in the site. It had a zipper pocket and two side by side no fastener pockets in the inside, as mentioned. The handle is of a faux leather material with braided backing. The print quality is excellent.
