Ever in the store and spot something you absolutely love and wish someone was there to share the joy? Now there is a great way to share, with other fashion enthusiasts, a photo of those Tory Burch boots you have been obsessing over or the Prada messenger back that almost had you fainting. Check out the recently launched Snapette.com iPhone app and never feel like you are shopping alone.
This app works similarly to Instagram. For example, a group of your friends are out shopping and one of them spots a pair of Jeffrey Campbell booties they absolutely adore. They snap a picture of their fashion find and upload the photo to Snapette.com, which will feature the picture in the order it was received. By uploading the photo, detailing the brand, location and price, she has now made the Jeffrey Campbell shoes easy to find for other Snapette.com users. This is a great way to share with others your fashion finds you discover when out shopping.
Another feature of this app that I really enjoyed was clicking on the photos and finding out what cities the other users were uploading from. For instance, there are pictures of a Hermes side bag uploaded from Ginza, Japan and grey Jimmy Choo pumps found at a Nordstrom’s in Arlington, VA. To take finding products a step further, you can find the brand, location, price and even get directions to the store if you select on the shoe or bag. Like most social apps, you can follow users as well. In addition you can click “love” if you like a photo and make comments. Lastly, you can also share other user posts on your Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.
The one downside about the app is that you can only upload photos of shoes and bags. Meaning no dresses, jewelry, makeup or scarfs. Since the company was only founded in January of 2011, I have a feeling this is something that will change in the coming future or at least, can only hope so. Otherwise, I think this is another great innovative app zooming in on fashion and creating an online social environment for fashionistas.
Don’t hesitate to download the iPhone app from the iTunes store and start sharing pictures of your favorite shoes and bags while you are shopping!
