Last week I got the chance to cover the amazing Sale story at the hottest shopping destination of town – VR Surat and check how shoppers feel about the same… here is my review –

BIBA

vrsurat2
I started the review with BIBA.

The moment I entered the showroom, there my eyes lit up literally… The Colors had such a positive impact on me.

vrsurat3

The whole showroom is very well arranged and filled with ethnic wear for women. BIBA offers outfits such as Anarkali, Kurta, Churidar, Dupatta. Amazing prints with bright colors and hues surely make you splurge!

vrsurat4

I also liked the long skirts from BIBA which reminded me of Kareena Kapoor in Kurbaan! The print and the artwork are the reflections of various cultures of India.

Bombay Dyeing

vrsurat5

The next stop was Bombay Dyeing – the most respected name in styling home.

vrsurat6

It’s a one-stop destination for Stylish linens, towels, home furnishings, leisure clothing and a blissful range of almost all home utilities.

vrsurat7

By the arrangements of merchandise you can make out that they have left no stone unturned to delight their customers. Amazing stuff at really affordable rates!!

Clarks

vrsurat8

Importance of good pair of shoes… Ask Cinderella! A new pair of shoes changed her life.

vrsurat9

From classy boots for men to trendy and fashionable heels for women, Clarks has a huge collection.

Pick up a style and walk away with poise. My personal craving for awesomely groovy and trendy fashion ends here. I found myself a classy bag 🙂 You definitely can dazzle your wardrobe with the amazing collection for both men as well as for women.

Desi Panache

vrsurat10

Each girl wishes to have pocket friendly fashion accessories for herself. Desi Panache is one stop fashion accessories destination. I found their tagline “Divas do it with style” very catchy.

I found each of the product very unique; reason being they are very modern and chic and with the touch of Indian-ness in them. The store has trendy modern apparels, beautiful bags, belts, and many other fashion accessories.

KERI

vrsurat11

KERI brand itself is a perfect blend of sweet and savor… and so is their collection. KERI is a perfect blend of Indian folk crafts n contemporary styles.

vrsurat12

Clothing line for men is also amazing.

I even found very trendy bags here.

vrsurat13

Products at KERI mostly are handcrafted and that is reflected in their quality.

Marks And Spencer

vrsurat14

The latest lifestyle and fashion stop for all the fashion lovers.. i just loved the simplicity and quality of the collection here.

vrsurat15

Be it men’s formal wear to casual ones, they are simply awesome. I liked the collection for women which includes formal, semi-formal and casuals.

Very comfy collection is showcased for all the seasons.

vrsurat16

Portico

vrsurat17

Portico Newyork itself has created the niche for itself with trend setting bed, bath and top of bed solutions. I was awestruck by the wide array of product which includes soft furnishing, Utopia range of bed and bath linen for the youth.

vrsurat18

The colors were really vibrant and mesmerizing. I enjoyed seeing the wide range of bed sheets, spreads, blankets, towels; towels gift sets, shower curtains and what not.

vrsurat19

I personally got to know about Soya Bean Fibre quilts, anti-mite and anti-bacterial pillows as well as eco pillows.

I found them extremely design-centric and lovely.

Shoppers Stop

vrsurat20

The symbol of the brand Shoppers Stop, which is created out of the initials ‘SS’ gives one a cue of infinity & delivers the message of the infinite possibilities that the brand promises.

vrsurat21

Shoppers Stop today presents the widest range of premium brands like French Connection, And, Being Human, Lee, Tommy Hilfiger, Esprit, Van Heusen, Pepe Jeans to name a few.

vrsurat22

I must say this is perfect destination from where you can buy all the stuff to keep everyone happy at home.

SWAROVSKI

vrsurat23

SWAROVSKI is the premium brand for the finest crystal elements. The detailing part of the jewelry was excqusite.

vrsurat24

Wrist watches were the major attraction for me. Other than that there is huge range of neck pieces, earrings, rings and all that bling we girls love! Discounts on these beautiful products are just “Sone Pe Suhaga” (Oops, I mean crystals pe.. 😛 )

The Body Shop

vrsurat25

The Body shop is all about rejuvenating your persona with the finest aroma and gentle care. Not just women but these days I suppose men have become more conscious towards cosmetics.

vrsurat26

Wide array of shower gels, fragrances, creams and other bathing accessories can be found here. They do have introduced good combos as discount offers.

Vero Moda and ONLY

vrsurat27

I completely fell in love as soon as my eyes got stuck on their collection. Vero Moda is all about trendy fashion. Be it denims or cropped ones, it will just make you go “wow”.

vrsurat28

The cute heart printed red shirt from ONLY was trendy. I found printed blazer very funky that can definitely be accessorized with some good neck-piece or so!

A super experience all in all. And really glad that i could post my experiences on this blog for others to read.

And the last week of the SALE is still on! Don’t sulk… Go Shop! :)”
