When it comes to shopping for outfits, I don’t dress to impress, I dress to express; which means I hardly ever buy clothes on impulse. Almost every type of clothing and accessory that I own has been methodically chosen based on a combination of look, comfort, price, quality, uniqueness, ambiguity, my mood of the day, and of course ideas formed from my inspiration and imagination. When it comes to shopping, I try to avoid just picking out outfits online that look good on someone else’s body and allow me to keep up with the style. Instead, I take great joy and pride in going out to stores and finding outfits that I can work with in order to create and express my own unique style.
Unfortunately being a recent college graduate, working two jobs, and updating Girlish Writings on my spare time has made my once therapeutic and detailed shopping adventures virtually impossible to fit in. However I think I may have just found a solution to my problem and I may just have to give it a “Swirl”!
Swirl is a new, fashion, mobile, app that many have referred to as “personal shopping assistant. Using Swirl on both my computer and iPhone, I have been able to create my own personalized catalog of styles and offers from my favorite stores while at the same time being provided with the prices and the nearest location of the desired product! With this app I will be able to cut my shopping time in half, leaving me more time to try on clothes and a little more money in my wallet!
With that being said, I can't wait to explore this app a bit more and am excited to see what will come of Swirl!
