Glimpse vs. Pinterest
Do you find yourself ‘pinning’ your life away? If you’re completely addicted to Pinterest, like we are, you HAVE to check out this new Facebook app. Glimpse by TheFind has teamed with Microsoft Internet Explorer to launch the latest in online shopping. It is giving Pinterest a serious run for their money. Glimpse is similar to Pinterest in the sense that you have all your ‘likes’ in one place. However, there’s a catch!
Like Pinterest, you pick your favorite products and ‘like’ them to create your own personalized catalogue. You are also able to see what your friends are ‘liking’. Glimpse will send you notifications when your favorite ‘likes’ are on sale! Does shopping smart get any easier than that?
Check out this behind the scenes video about Glimpse. We love that shopping just got personal again so start ‘liking’ and and check out www.glimpse.com to get a personalized catalogue started.
7 Sites That Need to be on Your Web Radar
We are living in a world of information overload these days so how do you know which websites and newsletters are worth your time? After scouring the e-world, I put together a list of my favorite online destinations that are perfect for fashion and lifestyle junkies.
Edition01 is the first online luxury experience designed to spotlight and sell limited edition fashion pieces from leading designers in one of a kind capsule collections. Collaborating with Vera Wang, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon (to name a few), founders Estefania Lacayo and Jessica Wilpon Kamel offer you a unique shopping and lifestyle experience which has already been touted by Vogue, WWD and Marie Claire to name a few. Their minimalistic and inviting web site is blog style making it very easy to shop their collections which are grouped by designers and lifestyle categories (“Travel Boutique”). You can also have a personalized shopping experience by using their “My Edition” feature to track what you want, need and bought and get recommendations for building your perfect wardrobe. I love that Edition01 goes beyond just shopping and gives you behind the scenes fashion intel in their Journal, stocked with insider interviews, celebrity essentials and designer inspirations.
