From My Style Book

It’s a gloomy day here in Minneapolis so I’ve been playing with my shopstyle and stylebook apps (again). It’s so fun to browse through hundreds of items and then put together dream outfits. I created four great looks for spring. They’re fun, a little flirty, and contain a variety of price points.

I love this floral print top. It has so many amazing colors you can pull into other pieces. It’s a great look for hanging on the weekend or for work.

This is my “date night” look (although you could wear it to the office). I adore the leopard print. The darkness of the denim and the black patent platform are very sexy, and really dress up the outfit.
7 For Mankind Mid-rise Bootcut Jean $169 available at Lord and Taylor
Chiffon Leopard Print Top $20 available at Old Navy
Balenciaga Giant 12 Nickel Velo Bag $1895 available at Neiman Marcus
Mossimo Paisley Platform $29.99

This is my “long lunch with the girls” look. Can’t you picture having cocktails on a patio with your besties wearing this ensemble?

Fun Fashion Apps

I’ve been battling a cold/flu the past couple of days so I’ve spent a lot of time searching apps for my iPhone/ iPad. There are so many cool tools available to make shopping and dressing fun and effortless. Two in particular caught my eye and I downloaded them immediately. Now I am completely obsessed and find myself spending way too much time playing.

Shopstyle Mobile is fantastic. It is like the ultimate search engine for all things related to shopping. This app brings together over 500 ecommerce sites offering clothing, shoes, accessories, and beauty. It’s a huge variety of stores (American Eagle to Chanel) all at your fingertips. You can add favorites, get sale alerts, post to facebook and twitter, or share via email. You can search by brand or store, or refine by style and price. A must have app for anyone who loves to shop online.

Stylebook is another super cool app. You can import pictures of your actual clothing and accessories and create looks and collages that will help make dressing a snap. There’s a calendar so you can track when you wear items so you don’t repeat too often and a packing icon which is a big help when planning your travel (it’s always so hard to know what to pack). You can also add inspiration and share your looks via facebook, twitter, tumblr, or email.

This a my first attempt at a collage. I actually used both apps. I got the pieces from shopstyle, added them to my closet in stylebook and created this “day” look. It’s so fun!!!

Both apps are available from the apple app store. I believe they were both free, but for sure under $5.00. My head is kind of in a fog today!!!
