Update: @Ideeli actually tweeted me back after I tweeted about this post, to inform that they don’t ship to Singapore, yet. Oops, sorry for the assumption! Let’s wait till Ideeli ships to Singapore! But even if they don’t, can still use Vpost service ya! 🙂
Have you heard of Ideeli or Singsale? They are basically members only retails sites that I’ve been introduced to by my friends recently and I’d like to share with you!
As taken from their website, “Singsale is a leading members-only online shopping club in Singapore and the doorway to affordable designer fashion. Every day we host sales for the top fashion brands in the world. Singsale members can access these sales and enjoy savings of up to 80% on ladies, men’s and children’s fashion and accessories as well as beauty and homeware brands.”
Ideeli’s brand profile’s pretty similar. “ideeli is a leading members-only retail site that delivers a fun and engaging daily shopping experience with a curated selection of offerings across the categories of apparel, accessories, home, shoes, kids, travel and experiences – all available at privileged prices.”
After checking out their sites, here are the few differences I’ve found:
- Singsale which is under APAC group, hosts mainly Australian brands while Ideeli, being American, hosts mainly American brands.
- Singsale charges $8.50 for shipping to Singapore while Ideeli charges $9.95. Which is reasonable, as America is further than Australia.
- Singsale limits members to one sale event at a time on their site while Ideeli allows their member to open as many tabs to as many sale events available on their site.
- Singsale requires members to check out their items with each sale event while Ideeli allows members to check out with items from different sales event.
- Singsale states a general 2-4 weeks for shipping period while Ideeli will specify how long the specific product will take to ship, usually from 1-2 weeks, which is faster.
- Singsale rewards members with S$10, while Ideeli rewards US$25 if their invitees purchase from the site…
Which brings me to the point… Sign up for Singsale
(which I’ve linked with my invite code) and not only will you’ll enjoy great savings but I’ll also be rewarded for inviting you if you make a purchase! You can also then invite your friends and stand to be rewarded! 😉 From here, I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
Singsale (Prices in S$)
/ Hood Biker Jacket-8451-Black $33.95
Um, I’ve always wanted a leather jacket, but I won’t be buying this although it’s cheap cause I want one that’s not too thick for Singapore’s hot weather. And I assume it is thick cause it’s from Australia where it’s cold… lol.
I have to say, white V-neck tees is one of my favourite staples and this would be cheap especially if you buy more to make the most of the shipping costs. They have the shirt in other colours as well as in men’s!
The model looks awkward...
Board shorts with cool cosmic prints!
Honestly I’m not a fan of Uggs boots cause they’re not really pretty and I think they look warm and weird for Singapore. But if you’re channeling cute Japanese style (like Xiaxue) you can totally grab these at a steal! Ok, there are actually a few more deals at Singsale right now, selling men’s clothes as well as Kitchenware and Kids-wear and home ware… which I’m totally not into. So you can check them out on your own! 🙂
Now going on to..
Ideeli (Prices in US$)
Michael by Michael Kor Colourblock Sweater Dress – $59.00
I love black, white, grey and dresses in this combination! I’ve come to realize that I’m very, almost too conservative for a fashion student. But it could also be that I just like the professionalism of these grey-scale colours. In any case, I’ve been controlling myself to not buy too many black dresses and to explore more colours, like peach, navy blue and printed dresses. 🙂 Going back to this dress, i think that it’s a good deal for a brand name like Michael by Michael Kor. And the thing about prestigious brand names is that you know they won’t compromise on material and quality.
BCBGeneration Sweatshirt Top – $29.00
I like the silver detail on the top, it’s both stylish and laid-back at the same time!
RENE ROFE Dot Girl Push Up Bra/Bikini Set – $10.00
You should know by now that I really like black and pink colour combination… even for underwear, lol! I really enjoy “window shopping” on these sales sites because I am exposed to more brands out there. 🙂 Never heard of Rene Rofe previously, but after seeing their sales event on Ideeli, and a short google on them, I know they’re an American brand with cute and affordable designs! Not sure about their quality but it looks pretty decent and fitting!
I wanted to purchase a bra and boyshort set from Rene Rofe’s sale but alas, they didn’t have them in my size… Of course, there is the concern of fit, but as with most online shopping, going with the standard sizing is pretty safe. I digress, I’m usually size M for tops and dresses so it’s pretty easy to shop in stores or online! Thankful that shopping for clothes can be a breeze with regards to sizing cause there’s usually plenty in my size, hehe. 🙂
R&M RICHARDS Twofer Dress with Tucking – $39.00
This is a pretty working dress! Good for office and teaching wear.
From my preliminary research into the two sites, It’s pretty clear that they are primarily targeting working office ladies, followed by possibly tech-savvy stay home moms, then working men. There’s abundant of female work wear, casual wear, accessories, shoes and bags in both sites. And majority are quite conservative designs. But it’s definitely still worth the time to check the sites out for the minority cool designs on big discount! 🙂
I shall repeat here and save you the trouble of scrolling up, Sign up for Singsale and Ideeli (which I’ve linked with my invite code) and not only will you’ll enjoy great savings but I’ll also be rewarded for inviting you if you make a purchase! You can also then invite your friends and stand to be rewarded! 😉
