Twitter is a forum where shoppers usually gripe and groan about customer service fails and shoddy merchandise. Since Toronto-based e-boutique Dealuxe launched earlier this year, though, I've only read glowing reviews for its great product selection and speedy delivery window from the stylish folks in my feed who have shopped the site.
That brand lineup includes lots of local labels, including Gee Beauty, Jenny Bird, Line Knitwear, Pink Tartan, Smythe and Virginia J ohnson. And as the website' name suggests, it's never short on deals. In fact, one of its biggest promotions is an upcoming warehouse sale taking place January 27 and 28 at 3328 Yonge. Fall and winter favourites will all be $150 or less.
What really elevates an e-tail experience, though, is the personal touch, and Dealuxe offers styling consultations over the phone and email notifications when the new buy you're hunting for arrives.
Dealuxe picks: A discount find doesn't get more chic than Smythe's one button blazer with piped lapels, $521.50 on sale; wrap yourself in a Virginia Johnson gauze shawl, $146.50 on sale; a pair of Dolce Vita Sabina boots feature moto details like chunky zippers and double buckles, $138.50 on sale.
Look for: Joanna's picks, a selection of clothing and accessories selected by the site's founder, Joanna Track.
Shipping and returns: Free shipping and returns on all Canadian orders.
