I think I may be the last person to talk about Limeroad.com, however I have a very valid reason for that. I will get to that in a bit.
Let me start with the layout. I have to be honest and say that I didn't like the layout the first couple of times I reached the landing page. It took time for me to get accustomed to it. It is definitely different from other online shopping websites in the sense that it is a more visual layout. The tabs for narrowing your selection are in a tiny print on the top. The first two times I kept trying to find the drop down to categorise the kurtas by price and I remember thinking "I need a manual to understand how this works".
However I will tell you one thing, once you get used to maneuvering around the site, it is a fun site. They have a wide range of selection in all categories- clothes, accessories, footwear. The price range is also pretty wide. I have seen some pricey stuff and quite affordable items as well.
I didn't pay too much attention to the home and kitchen items because when I have clothes and accessories, the chances of me getting distracted by home stuff is close to zero.
The one thing I don't like about the layout is that it keeps uploading more and more items as I scroll down. Now as magical as it may be to see more goodies pop up on the screen, I was actually trying to check out their shipping policies and return policies which are mentioned at the bottom of the page. In this case, righhhhtttt at the bottom (after you scroll down forever). I found that kind of annoying.
The other option is go to your profile and all these links appear without having to scroll.
One of the unique features of Limeroad.com is that you can put together your own ensemble and publish. Now for those who aren't sure what top to pair with what pants, this is a great way to experiment with the look online before ordering it. Moreover, if anyone else orders the ensemble you put together, then you get Limeroad credits. Cool na. They have templates that you can work with or if you are super creative then you can work with a blank template.
Oh I have to also mention that I was offered Limeroad Credits for this review and to use Limeroad credits you have to make a minimum purchase of 1000INR. Otherwise shipping is free for purchases above 300INR.
Now my experience with shopping at Limeroad.com
They messed up my order completely the first time!! I mean you guys have to see this.
I wasn't in town and my sister really wanted to shop for some new flats, so I told her to go ahead and order from Limeroad.
She ordered 2 pairs of flats and one kurti for me.
The is what she ordered.
And this what came...
The kurti I ordered was too small and the shoes were all wrong.
By this time I was back so I decided to go for an exchange. As annoyed as we were about the mess up in the delivery, it was good because I got to check out their return policies.
None of the items were available for exchange. Either they were out of stock or did not have the required size.
The delivery was pretty quick. All the items got delivered within 2 days of shipping.
Once the return had been done. I waited for the credits to get recredited and the money to be refunded before I placed an order again.
This time I went ahead and ordered just one pair of flats and a kurti.
Fortunately this time around there was no issues with the any of the items. The kurti fit well and the flats, well they are more sturdy than I expected.
Overall while there are a lot of positives in terms of the different type of layout, the wide range, and the fun you get by playing around with a look, if they fix the few kinks that they have and ensure that the right items are delivered, there is no reason to not go back there ans shop.
I can't wait to style these!!! l Let me know what you want to see.
