If you have an iPhone or iTouch, odds are you spend a good hour or so a day searching for and downloading new applications. *If you do not, please disregard this blog post. It was written by an obvious loser who is going to have to face it, she's addicted to apps.
Apple tempts us more than Eve tempted Adam in the Garden of Eden with iPhone ads glorifying easy to use apps for the gamer, the traveler, the sportsfan, the penny saver, the clubber, the chef, the health nut and more Apple treats that serve as fodder for the iPhone appaholic.
Whatever you're into, whether it's dining al fresco or expelling gas... Apple has an app for that.
Good news my fellow fashionistas, Apple even has apps for us. We may not be featured in our very own Apple spot just yet, but we're only a four inch stiletto away... best of all, most of them are free.
Here are a few of my favorite apps that are totally what's 'appening on the style scene.
1. Lucky at Your Service - If you've ever wanted your own personal digital shopping concierge, Lucky is at your service. The magazine about Fashion and Style has brought us an app about Fashion and Style, allowing us to browse their must have shoes, bags and jeans of the season, featured in the pages of Lucky magazine. Then they'll find the nearest store that carries our favorites, check to see if they're in stock and availble in our size.
If it's a must have app for The New York Times, it's a must have app for me... and it's free. I don't even have to leave a tip.
2. ShopStyle - I need the perfect red cropped cardigan. I don't have the time to search dozens of stores and rifle through rack after rack in search of perfect red cropped cardigan. Nor do I have the time to Google "red cropped cardigan" and sift through hundreds of listings, most of which are not cute. ShopStyle shows me all of the perfect red cropped cardigans available from the stores I love, all in one place.
Perfect red cropped cardigan is mine.
3. Style.com - I can't get enough of watching models do their little thing on the catwalk, especially after Miami Fashion Week. Get front row status and take in all the latest looks from the runway shows from Paris, Milan and New York. All in the palm of your hand. Oh yeah, it's free.
I'm also digging Carrie's Closet, DKNY and iShoes
If you heart fashion apps, trust me. These are the app-les of my eye.
