Website review: Vintage Desi

By 2comments Permalink 0

Hola ladies!
As a blogger, I am always on lookout for affordable designer wear, be it Indian or western. I came across website offering designer Indian wear the other day. It is called the Vintage Desi. While there are a plethora of sites offering western clothes for sale, this one aims solely at Indian designer wear. Apart from a wide variety to choose from, this initiative also aims to get us the best negotiated price from the designers themselves.

Vintage Desi currently sells outfits by designers like Anjalee & Arjun Kapoor, Anju Modi, Ankur & Priyanka Modi, Eshaani Jayaswal, Gauri & Nainika, Ranna Gill, Ridhi Mehra, Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna, Varun Bahl etc. They also stock clothes from local designers like Minal Bijlani (Paisley), Anisha Shetty, Sri Kaba by Shreya Paul, LoveShopDance, Karishma Trehan, Nakkashi and more. You can also choose beautiful jewelry by Shillpa Purii, Namrata Kedia and Sugarlips on the website to go with your outfit from this website itself.

The website also has a concept called ‘Nearly New’, which is a novelty as it provides ‘gently worn’ pieces by celebrities or models for sale, at highly slashed prices. Also the site offers you an option to empty your heavy Indian wear closet by selling some quality pieces here. This is a blessing for us girls who would rarely like to repeat an outfit, while it is still hanging new in our wardrobes. With Vintage Desi in place, we can easily replace this stuck place by a new designer outfit. The process is simple, you just need to fill a form, click some pictures of your otfit and send to the experts. They get the piece picked-up and inspect it. After a quality check, it is offered for sale on their site and you get a major portion from the sale. It is as easy as it sounds. Vintage Desi is thus aptly named!
Moreover, I love the kids’ collection on VintageDesi from Kidology. A personal observation: I liked a Gauri Nanika dress for my 2-year old kiddo at Kidology but failed to find a size. I happened to find it at Vintage Desi and at 500 INR lesser than at the store. So, girls Vintage Desi is certainly a solution for out ethnic wear confusions with an added luxury of online (sit-at-home) shopping. And believe you me, Quality is their USP, thus ‘designer wear’ is the ‘key’. So do try one of their outfits!

I love Indian outfits that have western silhouettes and Vintage Desi had good collection of them. Some of my favorite pieces on this website reflect that only 😛

Do buy a simple affordable piece first to give it a try. The outfits are exactly the same available at the designers and are not replicas or copies, but the original designer pieces themselves! So next time you are searching for an ethnic wear, or Indo-western, do check out Vintage Desi!
