Going shopping can become a daunting task especially on weekdays when you get off work late. Or on those festival days when the roads are packed and so are the malls.
That’s when online shopping comes handy – it spares you of the traffic snarls, rising petrol/diesel prices and the fight for parking spaces.
Shopping is an enjoyable experience as it allows you to step out of the four walls of your home or office and go through the various aisles of a supermarket or a lifestyle store to pick up items for home and personal wear.
But what about those last minute tasks and meetings that suddenly creep into your shopping plans? That’s where online shopping can come to your rescue.
Here’s one online shopping site that we’ve recently come across the Oxolloxo – a complete family online garments store that’s got something for men, women and kids.
Since they were already into manufacturing and exporting since 1990, they thought why not make something which we can offer to our Indian customers as well; that’s when we came up with an idea to sell online and oxolloxo.com was formed.
“Oxolloxo has no meaning; it is a mirror image and women love mirrors, don’t they, and so we wanted oxolloxo to be related as fashion which everyone loves,” says Oxolloxo.
We browsed through their website and found that their collection is clean, neat and no fuss and the best part being quite within a price range.
They believe in “Wear the World at affordable pricing” and so their fashion and designs are inspired from across the globe.
For Delhi based journalist, Debdatta Das, “Oxolloxo website is good with the designs offered. Their prices are also fairly affordable. Also they have a decent collection across age groups. What I liked a lot is that their designs are contemporary and along the lines of the current ‘fashion trends’ as well.”
Considering that we’re in the midst of the monsoons and if we had to pick a few tops or dresses for a casual wear, we’d go for the Women Pink Top (Rs. 599) – its baby pink colour, cut and style is apt for a gloomy afternoon. Team it up with black, beige or white capris and sandals for a movie or a lunch date to keep the look refreshing.
Planning to meet up with the girls for a brunch, how about donning up in this beautiful Stylish Maxi Dress (Priced at Rs. 1,399). The colours are not too loud, neither seeking attention; but make sure to keep the accessories simple maybe with a nice big watch and a pair of pearl drops to complete the look; finish it off with a black or white jacket or a fitted shrug if you like.
For instance, Mumbai based HR professional Manisha Mehta, liked the Women Printed Shorts (Rs. 599) and a Stylish Top (priced at Rs. 899).
According to her, “Even though the collection is a bit limited, while the other sites usually offer a lot more choice, the search filters in Oxolloxo and product information is very helpful and detailed; more so their discounted products definitely seem to offer good value for money.
For a formal event or a party to a club, personally we liked the Black Mesh Top (Rs. 1,249) – the black lacey sleeves make this top even more dramatic. We’d love to wear it with a pair of black fitted pants and high heels; a pair of ear studs and a blingy wrist watch to complete the look.
You can pick up oxolloxo’s branded outfits from Jabong, Myntra, Ebay, Amazon, Flipkart, Central (Retail Showroom) and Limeroad as well.
As soon as you place an order, within a few hours you’ll get a confirmation call from the oxolloxo team. Once done you’re consignment will arrive at your doorstep within a week with a complete status of your package delivery through SMS.
What we liked most apart from the prompt delivery was the tamper proof packaging of the garments, it was professional and assured you of a high quality product being delivered by oxolloxo.
The next time you plan on shopping for your sisters, girlfriends or cousins – get them to browse through oxolloxo to pick what they like so that you can gift them an outfit what they like.
By the way, Rakshabandhan is coming up, so all the brothers wondering what to pick for their sisters, allow Oxolloxo to give you a helping hand.
