Online Shopping
[Blog!-November 2009]

What do you think of online shopping? I’ve been adopting this shopping method recently instead of the traditional shopping in stores. Especially, for Indian clothes. Sometimes it’s not possible to find what you’re looking for in your area. Therefore, many of us have to resort to online shopping whether by choice or not.

Online shopping definitely has its good and bad sides. There is a lot of variety online. Especially, for saris. Not so much for anarkalis. The bad side is that what you see is not what you always get. For example, I ordered a sari online recently which appeared to be a combination of light pink and purple. When I got it, in fact, this was not the case. The sari was pink but not purple. It was dark pink. It’s pretty but not what I imagined.

Another down side is fabric. You don’t always get the fabric you want. Same happened with me. As for the price, it really depends. Sometimes you can find a great price on the internet. Sometimes they are overpriced. It’s difficult to spend a huge amount online because you’re not sure what you’re getting yourself into.

The sizing isn’t always the best either. Ordering clothes online is always a risk but especially with Indian websites because they don’t always offer returns and exchanges. I’ve found some great stuff online though and would love to order again in the future.
