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 and I’ll take it on.  I do love a challenge!

    Ah ha, that’s how you do it! (I tried to be all smart and do a similar thing and it was a pretty epic fail. I’ll just leave it to you brilliant people.) This seems like such a great idea, I like that you can get so specific for what you’re looking for, right down to the price!

          My calves are pretty large, too. Target has some slip-on ones right now that actually had room left over for my calves which rarely happens. I know the website says they’re not available in stores but I totally tried them on in the store this week:

    I am going to pretend I didn’t read this and continue to send YOU my requests! By the way, I need new knee highs. Mine from last year are worn out 😉

    Sersiously though< I should have used this when making my wishlist for my grandma. I had red blazer and solid color pencil skirt on there and didn't see much of what I wanted online (though I did give her a few examples).

    BOOYAH!!! I can’t wait to check this website out, thanks so much for sharing! This will be perfect for the holiday season. To echo Kim’s comment above, I am looking for a pair of riding boots – and also something OTHER than skinny jeans to wear with them. Would love any suggestions!

      What color and size of riding boots? And do you have any material restrictions (prefer non-leather or leather or something else)?

      I’ll do a future post on ways to wear riding boots! Great idea!
