Apps for the Global Fashionista
Snapette: This app (to the right) is for the fun and fashion hungry! Its touted as the “global go-to applications for die-hard shoppers.” It virtually lets you window shop the most coveted bags and shoes in stores near your current location and around the world. Check out the hottest trends in New York, Paris, Tokyo and beyond by reading what’s being posted.
GO TRY IT ON: Now that you have found the uber outfit, what would your best friend say– or what would a professtional stylist think about it? You can even create a network of Personal Stylists! Whether you need some inspiration, get advice or just a second opinion, this app puts more fun in fashion.
Obscura: (right) Now that you are in the dressing room and emailing your friends for fashion advice, you may not want everyone to see everything. Or OMG, you spotted an unbelievable dress or outfit when walking down Madison Avenue, but you want to protect the person’s identity. You can censor your own photos with a black triangle, a mosaic, or even stars! Its a cool way to “cover up” if your photo is too revealing in any way. The Obscura app was actually created when a Belgium based ad agency “Famous” was tired of being censored online, deeming the lingerie brand, La fille d’O, showed too much skin.
