Buying Eyeglasses Online

I'm a firm believer in buying everything online, whether it's clothes, shoes or groceries. But I have never bought eyeglasses online even though it's something I use everyday. Glasses used to be difficult to buy online because websites had little to no variety & no provisions for home try ons or returns.
But in recent times all of that has changed with websites coming up dedicated just to eyeglasses & sunglasses. There are a lot of trendy eyeglasses at & I just placed my first order with them recently & it was a very smooth experience from start to finish. They have a large collection & you can choose from a number of factors like brand, shape, use & whatnot.
Oval glasses with a subtle cateye are my current favorite & I found a great brown pair. I just had to put in my prescription details & my glasses came pretty soon & I have got to say there is no feeling like getting new glasses. Of course that feeling only lasts till I inevitably sleep in my glasses & bend them. ;) But I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts! And I love the convenience of being able to buy my eyeglasses online now.


For the love of Fastrack Watches

Wrist watches were a big part of my childhood 'fashion', but then cell phones came in the picture & I went years without putting on a wrist watch. But last year all of that changed, I got a stunning watch & since then I've bought many more & use them regularly.
One brand I've been crushing on recently is Fastrack, which is a great brand of watches (although they also carry other accessories like sunglasses & bags).
My mother a really nice Fastrack watch when the brand launched years ago & of course I 'borrowed' it all the time! Last year I decided to look at their collection again & really liked what I saw. They have great watches for everyday use in school / college & even more formal occasions. And best of all they're available at a very reasonable price point. I've been browsing all of the lastest fastrack watches at & their beach range (the pink watch on the left is part of it) is my favorite, especially since water resistance is a very useful feature in Mumbai monsoons.

Are you a person that still likes wearing wrist watches? What style is your favorite?

Tech | Voonik Fashion App

Voonik, a prominent online shopping platform has just released their new app. Since there are so few useful fashion related apps I was quite excited to take this for a spin.When you first open the app, you're taken through a quick four question quiz to understand your style & body type, this will help the app suggest clothes that suit you.
Suggestions are presented to you in a very neat flow that works similar to famous dating app tinder. You see pictures & a price... like it? Choose the ♥. Don't like it? Go with ✕.Or, you could just do the more fun thing & swipe left to skip, right to like.
All the items you've liked are subsequently stored for you, & you can be automatically alerted if any of the items you liked goes on sale.

One of the biggest strengths of the app, other than the personalisation is the fact that you are not restricted to one website. Voonik brings you shopping suggestions from many different websites, more variety = always better! You can also choose to browse according to the type of garment. Whether you're looking for salwar kameezes, a crop top or a pair of black slingbacks you're bound to find one here.
To me it's a godsent especially in the monsoon's when it's too icky to actually venture out of your home to shop (& why should you when you can get what you want at your doorstep, am I right?
I've always been an outspoken advocate for online shopping in general & this app makes browsing & shopping even more convenient & fun.

You can visit the Voonik website & download the app on the play store. Have you tried the Voonik fashion app? What are your thoughts on it?
