My Little Online Shopping Secret

Shopping · You Pick Wednesday

Today I’m going to let you in on a secret.

Ever wonder how I’m able to find items for those collage posts I do?  Or, have you ever asked me for help locating a specific type of item online and wondered how I found my results?

Well, here’s my secret weapon.




What is Shopstyle?  Basically it’s a online retailer aggregator that lets you search for clothing, shoes and accessories by brand, price, color, and size among other criteria.

For example, I’m currently still on the hunt for a navy blazer.  So, I typed “navy blazer” into Shopstyle.  Here’s a taste of what I got:


As you can see, on the left I could refine my search by choosing a price range, a brand, or several other options. You can then click on each picture to be taken directly to the retailer’s website to view more images or purchase the item.

Shopstyle also has several other functions including the ability to create collages of items found on Shopstyle.  You can also browse the collages that others have created if you need fashion inspiration.



Mostly, though, I prefer to use Polyvore to create my collages and Shopstyle to search for items online.  Shopstyle may not include every single online retailer out there, but most of the ones I frequent are there.

So the next time you’re on the hunt for something specific, give Shopstyle a try.  Or, if you’d rather delegate the work to someone else, you can always just email me at looplooks at gmail.com and I’ll take it on.  I do love a challenge!
