My experience on

Online shopping is the rage. I love ordering things online, because when they arrive, it's like a present from me, to me.

I have been an online shopping addict since the last 4-5 years, ever since the first few online stores got established! So I have tried most of the shops, brands etc.

I prefer online shopping over actually going to the store for various reasons. Saves travel time and energy, you can filter and see products only in your size so you are not disappointed that the product you liked is not available in your size, and the best thing is offers and discounts! Free shipping and exchange/return are icing on the cake of-course.

I happened to stumble upon this website called StyleBuys - All shops, one site. As the tagline says, it is a fashion searching portal where you can search for products and you will get results from all online stores partnered with them. Too good to be true? Well, I say check it out for yourself!

Imagine the shopping hot shots like Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Jabong, Fashionara, Koovs, Limeroad, StalkBuyLove, Snapdeal, Zovi etc all under one roof! Madness!! And yes, it is a long list of shops I tell you.

So you can shop for Clothing, Shoes, Accessories, Jewelry, Kidswear and Menswear here. You can shop brand-wise or shop-wise however you prefer.

Suppose you're looking for a pair of jeans. You can add filters like size, colour, brand, shop etc. I suggest not applying the shop filter and just applying the rest. This way you can check which shop has the best deal and buy from there!

I bought a pair of Vero Moda black jeans at 50% discount in my size. MRP Rs.2695/- Sale Price Rs.1348/-

Next, I wanted to purchase this French Connection shirt that the husband had loved at the store but did not buy because he found it a little expensive. I simply put in keywords - French Connection White Shirt and marked the shirts I found as 'favourites' which can be viewed later.

The shirt is at an MRP of Rs.3699/- and I had seen it on Flipkart days ago at 10-15% discount. I was pleasantly surprised to find it at 50% off on Myntra & Amazon. I would not have even thought of looking at Amazon had it not been for StyleBuys. Luck was on my side as I got the shirt in his size at Rs.1850/-

So all in all I bought stuff worth Rs.6394 at Rs.3198 hence saving Rs.3196 in the process! I can simply tell the husband that I bought the shirt for him at MRP and not mention the amount I spent on the jeans. Hahahaha! Jokes apart, I have already shortlisted handbags and sport shoes that are also on my shopping list. Will buy them very soon.

I wonder why no one thought of such a portal before, but better late than never! Some suggestions though would be to have more filters, a mobile app or mobile site maybe, and also show shop specific coupons that could be applied?

StyleBuys has made shopping a peace of cake, helping me save the time I would otherwise waste in searching multiple online stores for the best deals. Thank you guys! Do follow them on Facebook and try it out once, I am sure you will thank me. Do share your shopping experience in comments!
