I know I’m not the only one who is still completely, utterly obsessed with Clueless — and Cher’s closet. (Wanna feel old? That movie came out in 1995… eighteen years ago. Oh dear.) But despite her clunky PC, and the fact that that I was just fourteen when it came out, I still want that closet… and the fun software that went along with it… Alas, I live in real life (in a tiny Manhattan studio), not Cher’s life in Beverly Hills.
But anyway. When Covet Fashion approached me about trying their new app to share here on S&S, I was a little bit skeptical. To be honest I have so little free time that (prior to this at least) I didn’t play a lot of games on my phone (besides the NY Times Crossword app – I’m embarrassingly hooked on the Easy Puzzle Packs.) Then they did a bit of name dropping… in the best way possible – Rachel Zoe is their ambassador and a big fan of the app. And then I took a look at the brands that are involved (all my faves… Joie, Rebecca Minkoff, Twenty Tees.) and I decided to download it and see how I liked it.
Flash forward to an hour or two later and I was hooked. Virtually shopping, putting together outfits a la Cher (bonus – without actually spending the money to shop) I built up a $10,000 wardrobe, found myself putting together multiple looks, and voting on different looks in the community to earn more tickets. Fantasy shopping at its finest. Also, I should tell you that I ended up feeling inspired by many of the looks in the community… it’s a great way to discover fun outfits to put together! (You can also shop the actual pieces from the app… if you are so inclined and need your real-life shopping fix.)
If only I could get my hair to look as perfect as the avatar’s!!!
