The weekend is here! What did you do with your election holiday? If you’re like me, you’re in bed (mentally) preparing to go out. If it’s your birthday, Happy Birthday! If you’re getting married, Happy Married Life! If you’re just being you and celebrating how special you are, Happy Being You Day!
Oftentimes, I get enquiries about where I “shop online” and to be honest, I’ve cut down on my shopping in the past few months. However, there are some stores that break through my Alaroro barrier once in a while (read: almost everyday) and it takes strength to not buy from these stores.
Their things are quality and affordable! How can I say no? Well, here’s my current list of affordable and alaroro friendly Instagram stores:
Yes, I am absolutely biased towards brands and businesses that deliver on their promises and Wunmi of Shoepify’s promise is affordable and quality shoes! My current work shoes were a gift from a friend who I advised to buy from Shoepify. It’s been months and I am still rocking my suede heels from Shoepify. I recently got a pair of nude heels that I have not broken in yet – I’m just waiting for the perfect party!
Pricing: 5k – 10k
Service: Really good!
Speed of Delivery: Order by evening time? You’ll legit get it the next day (Lagos)
Ena has the cutest selection of shoes you will ever see! Her service is topnotch and her delivery time? quality! I mean, I saw shoes on her page that had 37-41 in sizes and I was just bothered! Like what did Size 42 wearers ever do to these shoe sellers??? I still hit her up and picked out a pair of shoes and she promised to help me source my size! In two working days, I had my cute pompom ballet flats on my feat. Pricing: 5k – 18k (the most expensive item on her page is a pair of knee length boots!) Service: Patient and Value adding Speed of Delivery: Really fast!
- Letoile Stores
I recently purchased a blazer from this store and I have to say – response time is super. Sent an enquiry message, finalised the next day and I received my order the very next day. She also has a website, but IG is such an easy way to shop and feel like you are interacting with someone real.
Pricing: NGN 3500 and up!
Speed of Delivery: Superb!
Skin and Hair Care
Yes, Jennifer is one of The Hustle Continues WCW we have featured on the blog and her products were a key part of my pre-wedding skincare routine! Do you remember how I was glowing like the sun?! Yeah, you should totally check out Hairffiliation for quality skincare and haircare products. Pricing: NGN 300 – NGN 4000. She also has beginner kits for N10k! Hit her up. Service: Jennifer’s service is spectacular! Speed of Delivery: 10/10!
