I know I’m the Shopping Editor at, but I have to admit the retail scene in Singapore is pretty bleak. The last time I bought a piece of clothing here, was in September when I was desperate for a black dress. While stores are aplenty, selections are mediocre and the worst part is how heavily marked up everything is. I know retail is no easy business with sky-high rents, the almost-impossible task of looking for good service staff, amongst other things but as a customer, you can’t help but want to blow your moolah outside the +65.

If you’re globetrotting and going for European sojourns quite so often, lucky you! The mere mortals amongst us who salivate over designer stashes and latest fashion covetables don’t have to twiddle our thumbs anymore - introducing Sins of Lust, a personal shopper service in Europe that caters to Singaporeans, and Asians who want designer bags [or anything at all] minus the ridiculous prices in Singapore.

Prices of the designer goods you purchase will definitely be lower than the stores in SG, and they include the cost of the service, plus first class registered postage and taxes. Whether it’s something that’s too expensive to buy in Singapore, or a collection that won’t reach our shores, Sins of Lust is there to help. Here’s how

  1. Get in touch with the good people at Sins of Lust, and tell them what you’re looking for. Give them the full 411, with specifics. They will get back to you with a quote in about 24 hours.
  2. If agreeable, they’ll send you an invoice via Paypal. You can also make payment via their Singapore-based account via iBanking.
  3. Once payment is received, you’ll get your baby within 10 working days.

WHAT?! Totes easy peasy.

Here are the prices that Sins of Lust's customers enjoy, and you definitely know that they are unbeatable in the boutiques of Singapore!
