Jumia is one of the major online retailers in Nigeria. I love to shop online whenever I need to add a new fashion item to my closet. I can either shop overseas brands (i.e. NOT urgent buys) or on Jumia(to cut the wait time). I really needed to add new bags to my closet. Since, I have my eyes on Ankara bag, I shopped a set from Jumia. It is a set consisting of a cross body bag which can double as clutch, a hand bag, bow detail hoop earrings set and bangles. Shopping online comes with so many reservations though, I have shared some tips on how to shop online in a previous post. This can serve a simple guide to minimize surprises from online shopping. Also, here I will be sharing a jumia product review of my Ankara bag set and shopping experience.
Shopping on Jumia
As always I love to do reviews on fashionable product that add to my closet and the brand. So, this I am doing a Jumia product review for my ankara bag set. It a is popular online consumer goods retailer especially fashionable goods. I am also a frequent shopper on this site. All the products are in categories. Also, there is a search box where you input the product you want. So, shopping on jumia website quite easy and fast
After adding items to your cart on Jumia. All you have to do is check out your items. You can opt for pay on delivery if you prefer to see your purchase first. Although not all sellers have this option. Also, you can pay via jumia pay platform and enjoy 5% discount.
Delivery of Ankara Bag set
Jumia provides two options for receiving items. There is a pick up option to get your package at any jumia office closer to you. If you choose this option, you will not be charged for delivery. Also, you can choose to have it delivered to you at a fee. I received my order 5 days after the date of check out. I am excited about the option to track your order now available on jumia. Although, I can’t understand why I had to wait 5 days to receive my order i.e. from Victoria island to Lagos island.
Jumia product review: Ankara bag set
There are so many creative and stylish Ankara bags on Jumia. I chose my ankara bag set because it comes with extra accessories. Two sets of bags, a pair of earrings and bangles. So below is my review of each item from the ankara bag set haul
I love the large handbag from the set. It is a mix of Ankara and denim material. I love the way it made. It is quite roomy to accommodate a lot of things. So, I just throw a lot of essential ladies’ stuff and some extras. Although I ensure that I don’t throw in things with so much weight so it won’t lose shape. Also, weighty stuffs may make the bag give in due to the weight.
Chain crossbody bag
I love the chain Ankara bag. My reason is that it can serve two purposes. As a clutch for a dinner date or crossbody bag for a casual outing. It is not as big as I would expect. Also, the chain gave in easily due to the too many things I put in at a time. So, this bag for some basic essentials: chapstick, lipstick, pen, some cash, cardholder, etc.
Bow detail hoop earrings
Hoop earrings are a staple for me. So, this creative now made of Ankara material is unique. I love this set of earrings like crazy. I may shop more of such earrings for closet.
I am a size 6 with a small wrist. The bangles from the Ankara set were so big for me. Also, I am not such that I wear bangles as jewelry. Asides wristwatch or brackets for my wrist, I don’t see myself using bangles as a staple. I wish the seller would ask for the buyer statistics before making the bangles. So, i guess i would need to give the bangles soonest. I am quite satisfied with my haul. So if you’re looking to shop your own Ankara bag or accessories, check out Jumia.
