Fashion Apps You Gotta Have for iPad

Posted by    |    July 9th, 2012 at 2:24 pm

As someone who is a lover of all things tech, I am a huge sucker for cool apps.  My iPad has quickly filled up with some that I have decided I would be totally lost without.  It’s no surprise that a few of these are fashion apps, and perhaps even some you may have already scooped up for yourself. Check out my top fashion apps that I think are worthy of the download.

1. POSE.  Here’s the rundown: it’s free, it’s fun, and it’s chock full of inspiration!  Pose lets you share and discover styles from around the world. You know you already take self-portraits with your iPhone or iPad on those days you look extra cute, so why not share them with the world?  Note-worthy posers are often featured on the Pose blog, which gives your inner-fashionista something to shoot for.

Pose....the app that lets you pose. See?

2. STYLE.COM.  This is one glossy baby, right here.  If high fashion is your thing, you’ll love watching videos of the latest runway shows and fashion parties across the globe.  Where else can you see up-to-date photos of Sofia Coppola’s new outfit at the opening of Louis Vuitton’s Haute Joaillerie store?

3. SHOPSTYLE.  Read this description: “All the stores you love, all in one place. ShopStyle brings together the most fashionable stores and the best designer brands. Shop the latest styles within our clothing, home decor, and kids & baby categories from over 300 of your favorite retailers including ShopBop, Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, Sephora, Net-a-Porter, and more.” Um, yes, yes, yes, yes. Be prepared for restraint with the credit cards.

4. TRENDSTOP.  If you are keeping up with the trends instead of the Kardashians, then you need this app.  You will be up to date on daily fashion trends, styling ideas, and global interests spotted on the runways and in street style. You can also follow up-and-coming designers, art, exhibitions, launches, etc.  Wanna know it before everyone else?  This is how.

How Big is TOO Big?

The engagement ring. A sign of things to come.  A promise worn for the world to see.  A way to solidify your celebrity status forever. Wait….what?

It seems these days in pop culture that the engagement ring is no longer just a symbol of love, fidelity, and a man’s intent to make you his bride.  Celebrities are suddenly in the never-ending cycle of bigger and better, seemingly to “one-up” each other in the diamond department.  Now, most ladies wouldn’t turn down a 2 million dollar Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring, but many blogs are tearing apart Kim Kardashian’s new bauble.  Weighing in at 20.5 carats and reported to be “the  highest color and clarity”, beau Kris Humphries proposed to Kim this week. It’s no secret that Kim loves big diamonds (Liz Taylor was a reported idol,) and her new love wanted it to measure up. After sister Khloe Kardashian received her sparkler from hubby Lamar Odom two years ago (a cool nine carats), the world knew their televised sibling rivalry would mean at least one other Kardashian would have to beat that number.
