Fashion inspiration…Where do you play?

So…I have been researching social networks dedicated to fashion, and WOW…seriously found hundreds of them!  I tell ya’ if you’ve got a passion for fashion and want an outlet to share your personal take on style, the latest trends and shopping, all while making friends with similar tastes online, there  is a plethora of social networks will give you all that and more.   I personally enjoy using tools like Facebook and Twitter, and social shopping which allows groups of friends or like-minded people to become involved in the shopping experience, recommending products to one another and bookmarking their favorites for the world to see. So thought you guys might be interested too. Let me give you a run-down of some of the more popular fashion sites I found and what their focus seems to be…

Pinterest: This site describes itself as “a virtual pinboard — a place where you can post collections of things you love, and ‘follow’ collections created by people with great taste.” Users can bookmark products or photos and follow one another’s inspiration boards.  I am on Pinterest come find me if you use this site!

Wanelo: Wanelo combines the words ‘want,’ ‘need,’ and ‘love’ into one branded website for shoppers who can follow one another and see what’s popular. Users of this site lean towards edgy, hipsterish products like suitcase chairs and gramophone iPod docks.  My niece introduced me to this site, and I am addicted to it!  If you are not familiar with this site, its worth taking a look at it.  You can find me there too @ http://wanelo.com/miusmillie

JustBoughtIt!: Like many other social shopping sites, this one uses Twitter and Facebook to collect favorite products from the community. People snap a photo or grab a screenshot online, then share their purchases and comment on what others are buying. Although most users post fashion finds, there are some home products, which users post from all over the world.

Storenvy: This site connects independent sellers with buyers — aka the Etsy model — but it’s more integrated into social media, allowing users to easily “follow” stores, post finds to Facebook, and tweet their favorites.

vi.sualize.us: Like Pinterest, this site allows users to bookmark photos they find around the web. An Etsy-ish layout and lots of handmade finds make it more craft-centric than the other sites listed here.

Polyvore: This site is a monster of social shopping and, although its main focus is fashion, it also has a loyal following of would-be-interior-designers who use the site to mock up inspiration boards filled with home products.

Svpply: This site allows users to curate wish lists, follow one another, and become online tastemakers. The layout is minimal, and the aesthetic tends towards edgy, innovative products.

Chictopia Besides sharing your outfits and style with other fashionistas, this site offers a very interactive network where members can easily follow inspirational users, give each other advice in the forums, sell their clothing, redeem rewards, 

Do you participate in any of these sites?  Are there others that you enjoy more? OH and don’t be shy… have more…add to my list!  I want to know where you play.

Find me on Pinterest, Wanelo and Polyvore.

    I personally like Poshmark. This is a great site to sell and purchase great designer items.
