When it comes to luxury shopping, we’re all vary of making that frivolous purchase! Window shopping every Sunday could be a regular thing, but when it comes to clicking the ‘Buy’ button, there are too many things that cause us to terminate the action. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea and I lost my Luxury Online Shopping virginity to Luisaviaroma a few years back! My very first order was actually a well discussed gift by, the now husband then boyfriend & it consisted of two pairs of pumps from Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana. I won’t lie, I was nervous but when the order was at my door step in 4 days without the issue of customs or any other type of delay, it was a sheer delight. Carefully packaged in the classic black Luisaviroma box, both the pairs came in their original boxes, with warranties and bills attached. I examined them carefully for scratches, extra threads or sole damage but there was none! And that my friends was the happiest moment for me and probably the saddest for my bank account!

Since then, I’ve made various purchases from the website and although I prefer buying most of my luxury items while travelling, I’ve noticed myself making at least one purchase every year through this website! They share regular discount codes too, which makes the purchase always appear as a good deal! And indeed it is. I’m sure a lot of you have seen my most recent purchase- the Valentino Rockstud shoes. After months of contemplation and trying them on in pretty much every duty free, I bite the bullet! They are definitely an investment piece and have added that much needed balance to my wardrobe. But while I was sharing all this on social media, I realised that a lot of you had so many questions about this purchase, so here I am, clearing out the most common queries about shopping on Luisaviaroma.

1) Customs
Indian customs can be quite the debbie downer when it comes to shopping from international websites. However, Luisaviaroma, includes the custom charges in their price, so what you pay online, is all you need to! There will be no additional charges after that point. Not even customs!

2) Shipping
They’re shipping is usually free and quick! None of my orders have taken more than 5 days to be delivered and that’s another thing I completely love about this website. They even do free returns so in case you didn’t like something, you can send it back!

3) Quality & Authentication
Another point of conflict when it comes to online shopping is, whether what you’re ordering is an actual branded product or a very well displayed fake! All of Luisaviroma products come with original warranties, authentication tags & boxes/dust bags so you really don’t have to worry about that.

I hope I’ve answered most of your questions! In case you have any more, feel free to leave it in the comments below. Also, make sure you’re following me on Instagram because I keep sharing the discount codes there! (There’s another one coming very soon!) But in the meantime, they have an amazing SALE going on & there is a special 30% off code for any full items over 300 Euros till 28th November- BF30! Happy shopping guys!
