Your ticket to luxury with Reebonz

Reminiscing

I have a confession to make.

During my entire secondary school, and junior college student life, I've never dared enter a Chanel, Louis Vuitton, or other luxury brand store. Why? Because I couldn't afford anything, plus I didn't look the part, so what was the point?

But I've always wanted to enter one of these stores.

If only this was my school bag when I was still in school.

Hence, I looked at the bags from afar. Yes, I meant it literally, from outside the store. I would walk past the store several times just because I wanted to catch a few more glimpses of the bags or accessories, trying not to look like a suspicious person.

I've dreamed about the bags. Why were they all so expensive and unattainable?!

At that time, I did not know how much these bags cost. I just knew that there was no way I was going to afford it with my measly pocket allowance from my parents (which made watching movies with friends a bit of a stretch, as it were).

Kids these days dress much better than I did at that age, the times, they are changing.

 1 in 6 Singaporeans are millionaires, right?

When I entered university, I mustered the courage to enter these stores, with my friends, of course. I never knew what to say to the staff, and often left the store, with thoughts of the adorable accessories, and beautiful bags. I vowed to own a bag from one of these brands in future.

Now that I've just started work, I've been squirreling funds away for my first 100% earned luxury bag. I'm currently spoilt for choice and value, thanks to Reebonz!

With a selection of all the top, popular brands such as Prada, Miu Miu, Chanel, YSL, Burberry, and much more. The best part of this whole arrangement, is that you can shop from the comfort of your own home via their online website. It helps that Reebonz offers frequent discounts, and deals to cater to every budget!

I love online shopping because I'm... lazy. If I had the option to sit at home all day in front of my computer, clicking through many websites and looking at pretty models, compared to walking around town all day into the brands that I commonly shop at... I pick the former. Walking is tiring, plus the stores are far away from each other... furthermore there's just so much variety online...

Since I do know my size for the various items, shopping online is a breeze. There is of course, caveats to this mode of shopping, returns can sometimes be a tricky process, and manufacturing defects that aren't apparent on studio-shot photos can be an issue with certain items you purchase online.

Reebonz (pronounced ribbons) allows you to purchase items from all the above-mentioned brands (and more) at up to 70% discount ONLINE with free shipping. Allow me to share with you what I love about Reebonz!


Great idiot-proof, user interface
When I first logged onto Reebonz, I was already impressed by how professional the website looked. "Looks very legit" was my first thought. You also get to sort pages by price and availability! Membership is free, and only members can view events, and purchase items at a discount. New events are in daily at 12 noon. (be sure to check the site before heading out to lunch!) :p


 
Pretty and neat!


Variety
Be tempted by their bags, small leather goods, accessories, clothes, and shoes! The men are also accounted for, with their own section of bags. I am currently eying their Chanel items. I am leaning a little towards the vintage Chanel range, because I have noticed that less people carry them in town. However, browsing their website, and after a visit to their physical store (I'll get to that), I ended up having feelings for a bunch of other bags as well! ._.

Chanels, please.
New arrivals can be as recent as bags from one season ago. So you don't have to worry about items being completely outdated or passé.

Each Fashion Sale Event is only available for a limited period of time! Hesitate, and that bag you've always wanted now belongs to someone else. Boo.

Crazy discounts
Prices shown on their website are cheaper than retail prices by up to 70%! The reason for such rock-bottom prices, is because Reebonz exports their products from authorized suppliers from Europe, so you know that you're getting the real deal.


They even had a recent 99% sale (!?!?!), where members had to complete 2 missions to be granted access. The first was to refer 5 friends, and the second, was to guess a mystery bag which would be revealed on a certain date and time. Within MINUTES of the 2nd mission released, all 300 places to the event were snagged up.

I passed the first mission, but was 10 minutes late in activating the second mission. Let's just say that I was depressed for the rest of the day.

Installment plans make luxury, affordable
If you can't fork out the money immediately (I completely understand) for these bags, Reebonz offers 0% installment plans for credit cards, with a minimum spending of course. More information is available at their website.

 Miu Miu weakness

Now, it's possible to look tres chic and show off your fashion sense with your new buys!!

Plus, if you invite your friends, receive 5% credit or up to 200 credits (that's SGD $200!!) from your friend's first purchase!

Feel and touch before your purchase!
If you're more of the touchy-feely kinda person, you'd enjoy this. Launched in Feb 2012, Reebonz Space is an area for members and the public to have a personalized shopping experience while being pampered by complimentary refreshments. Reebonz Space is available in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia. Here are some pictures of their Singapore branch!

The female clothes section

 Made this picture huge so you guys can see the discounts for their brands and items!

 
 Why wait forever on the waiting list when you can just own one immediately? The red one is gorgeous.

A woman can never have too many shoes.

 A dress from alldressedup that caught my eye while I was browsing :)
 Model wannabe. How can anyone not love this Leopard Print bag from Mulberry?! 
This is also my favourite shot of me in the entire post lol.

 Singapore's branch is located at:
Clifford Centre
24 Raffles Place
#07-07

The location is Perfect for the office crowd. All photos with me on this blogpost were taken at Reebonz Space. You can walk around, and pretend that you own every item in this space, as I felt extremely comfortable shopping in there. A nice mini getaway from the bustle of work

Concerns

There are definitely going to be some concerns about online shopping, since it's with regards to spending your money on products that you can't feel or touch before purchasing.

1) Products that do not arrive in a condition up to expectations

Reebonz takes great pride in ensuring the quality of their products and I haven't heard of any complaints from my friends who have purchased from their online shop so far. Plus, items are gift-wrapped packaged nicely and delivered to your doorstep within 3 days! That's better than the best online blogshop I know of :X How's that for expectations?

2) Payments are not secure

Reebonz is committed to protection your personal information. From their website "The Site encrypts your credit card number and other personal information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers." Trust that it won't be compromised :)

3) Exchange, refunds?

For any incorrect or defective items, Reebonz has a 14 day return policy upon receipt, subjected to a few terms and conditions. So if you change your mind, you still have an option out!

Convinced yet? :P Head to Reebonz already!

 Two baby proenza's!

Check out their Facebook page or download their iPhone/iPad application for their latest events and updates!

So I'm still on the hunt for my perfect bag. Any suggestions? :) Feel free to tell me your favourite bag featured in this post as well!

XOXO: Thank you Christine for helping me shoot these photos!! They came out gorgeous!
