Weekend Update

Thank goodness it’s the weekend!  I had to work… and have a work meeting tonight, but somehow, it’s still the weekend and it’s just better. Am I right or am I right? ☺ I wanted to pop on here and show some outfits from this past week — I’ve been a little absent on the blog, but still snapping photos and have all eyes on newly released items and sales! 😍

In somewhat of the bummer news category, you might have noticed Polyvore was bought out by another company a couple weeks ago – and turned it into a retail website only (called ShopSense). I felt lost – truly! Polyvore was my #1 tool for creating outfits using old items in my closet and new items I considered buying. I did a quick search online and found a couple of alternatives that I may try. The first one is the closest alternative to Polyvore I could find on the web – called ShopLook. They claim they are working hard to create an environment similar to Polyvore and will upload a “clip” tool by 4/27 to pull items from retailers and will therefore enable outfit creations using any fashion item on the web — I hope!

The other option is an app called Stylebook. I’ve actually had this app for a long time, but could never quite get into it because of the work involved. Initially you had to take photos of each item in your closet, using the most perfect white background, “cut them out” on your phone, and “add” them to your online closet. The idea is wonderful – to have a virtual closet of every item you own at your fingertips – but aint nobody got time for that! I think since the app was released you can now upload images taken off the web and they also have a “calendar”  for outfit planning and an “inspiration” section to upload web images of style inspirations. Both of those ideas I love! So, I might give this app another chance. But I also might throw my phone in the trash if their uploading feature for items is not better than it was 2 years ago. 😂

I’ll update ya’ll in a couple weeks and let you know if I still have patience and a phone. 😆

Below are a few top-down photos I’ve taken over the last week — hope ya’ll had a great weekend!
