Introducing VIVA-LUXE.COM

asian fashion blog the rednotebook

I love online shopping. Browsing latest collections and designs online is my favorite pass time. I enjoy exploring latest trends for both my Indian and western wardrobe. Living in London I have access to all designer and highstreet brands which would deliver next day. However when it comes to my Indian fashion shopping, delivery time is always an issue. Recently I came across VIVA-LUXE.COM. VIVA-LUXE is a new online destination selling asian designer wear. What sets VIVA-LUXE aside from other e-tail sites is the ease of delivery and 21 days exchange/return policy. They also offer next day delivery on their ready made stock. The great thing is that they offer FREE standard delivery worldwide. Their delivery service looks very attractive to me. Will surely try them out sometime.
