Have you ever seen someone walk by wearing gorgeous heels, a trendy shift dress, or a unique jacket and wondered how you could steal their style by finding similar (or even the same) items near your location? Or maybe you’ve strolled by a store window featuring a fabulous ensemble right next to a sale sign and wanted to share the news with all of the fashionistas out there looking for deals just like you. It just so happens that there is an application for your iPhone that can help you on both counts. Snapette is a mobile shopping guide that can not only help you to find and share the fashions you love, but also scope out sales in your vicinity in order to get the best deals on the garments and accessories that will turn you into a respected fashion plate amongst your inner circle of fabulously appointed friends. Here are just a few reasons to download this freebie and take your style sojourn to the next level.
Let’s start with the “discover” function, which helps you to find out what’s trending in the ever-shifting landscape of the fashion world. You can start by sifting through photos posted by users who share what they’re loving right now. This could include pics of women on the street sporting a particular style, in-store pics of cute outfits or accessories, or even images of items that fashionistas themselves have recently purchased. Users can also give their photos location tags so that you know exactly where to go to get the very items you’re enamored with. And they can also include tips and reviews that could help you to find the fashions you seek and determine whether or not you want to buy them (or head to a discount store that features virtually the same style at less cost).
Once you’ve found items you like you can start following the users that snapped the pics (since you’re clearly part of the same style sisterhood) or you can follow the stores they came from. The former will allow you to love pics and make comments while the latter will ensure that you get updates concerning sales or special discounts from any of the 200+ shops, boutiques, and brands featured in the Snapette app. You’ll also get push notifications when stores in your area are having sales or offering exclusive discounts to Snapette users.
It should be noted that this application currently features locations only in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Boston, and San Francisco. But if you don’t live in one of these cities you’ll be happy to know that you can still use the app to stay up-to-date with the latest fashions in these trendy urban centers. And you can utilize the shop feature to get great deals on many of the products shown, even if you can’t pop over to their storefronts. If you’re looking to buy Chi flat iron products that will give you the glossy hair celebs seem to flaunt, you might not find them with this app. But if you want to know where Emma Roberts got that cute pair of flats, simply follow her feed on Snapette and order a pair for yourself!
