Psst! Hey you…yea, you! Have you ever seen the movie, Clueless and wish you had Cher’s computer program that helped her pick out her #ootd? Well, I have a treat for you. I came across this app called GlamOutfit on my iPhone and will continue to talk about how fantabulous (yes, fantastic and fabulous put in one word) it is in my fashion workshops. And well, anyone else that might be interested; the mailman, barista, or someone in line at the grocery store? Who knows!? I love it because you can upload your entire closet along with accessories and shoes to keep a running inventory of what you own. You can request people to “style you” which is great for when you feel overwhelmed about what you should wear for a certain occasion. Or maybe you want to see what other people would put together. You know how easy it is for us to be “so over” our clothes. Sometimes it just takes an outsider looking at your closet with a fresh set of eyes.
Here’s what using the app looks like:
1.) Upload images of your clothing and it will allow you to categorize it by color and subject (i.e. top, bottom, shoes, etc)
**PLEASE NOTE** the “style me” icon at the bottom center of the above image. This is where you can request someone to style you. The hanger icon is your closet and the shopping bag icon is where you can shop from the app for additional items you may need.
This is what the page looks like where you can create the filters to categorize your clothing.
Once you put together a look you can also schedule a time to wear what was created. This works out perfectly for vacations or if you are a pre-planner in general.
When you click on the shopping bag icon it takes you to the shopping page which looks like this. It’s also categorized by using a filter button by topic. This is perfect for those times when you need an item to go with the one piece you thought you could wear a lot, only to find out that it wasn’t the right color. Do you return it or find something else to go with it? If it is a special enough piece, look for something else to pair it with in your closet.
You can also add a “selfie” image to your “outfits” section so you remember what you put together and how it looked (the above image).
All-in-all this app has been great. I actually am one of the stylists for this app so I can go in and style YOU! This is a free app and is meant to help you organize your wardrobe and feel good about your clothing and look at them a little differently.
The two main ways I use this app are to style people and take it with me when I go shopping. What better way to know if that beautiful shirt you picked out is going to go with anything else you own? Or is it too similar to what you already have? To me, this is the smart way of shopping.
I’m sure there are many other ways this app can be used, but for me this is how I use it and it is s very handy tool. Good luck and I hope you enjoy the GlamOutfit app! Let me know if you try it and how you like it?
