I have had the app “Pose” for a couple months now, but didn’t even look at it until my dear sweet friend Courtney remarked to me that she was newly obsessed with it.
She then said that it was “like Pinterest but just fashion and kinda like Instagram”.
Well, as soon as she said that, I HAD to check it out.
First off, if she hadn’t said it was like Pinterest, I don’t think I would have understood the point of it (although they do send you an email with directions, but who really reads those anyways). ;)
When you first use the app, it has you take a quiz to nail down your style likes and dislikes and it automatically has you follow people with similar style.
Just like Pinterest and Instagram (if you haven’t started a Pinterest or Instagram account yet, you need to get on board immediately), you scroll through square pictures of outfits that other Pose users have posted. Then if you find something you like, you easily “drag” it to the right where your “boards” are waiting.
This is perfect for saving pictures and using them as inspiration. You could have an “accessories” board, a “shoe” board, an “outfit” board or make a board for every season for year round inspiration. The names of the boards and how many you have are up to you.
There’s also the option of buying parts of the outfit straight from the picture. If you see a picture with a blue shopping bag logo in the bottom right then it contains a link to an item in that picture. How cool is that?!
(I’m in LOVE with that gold J.Crew bracelet!)
You can also post pictures of your own outfits, accessories or hairdos for others to use as their inspiration, just like Pinterest, but it seems like more people “like” other’s pictures more than they actually post. You can find me under “girlwiththesmile”.
For a completely free app, I highly suggest that you give Pose a try.
But careful, it’s highly addictive. ;)
Recognize this sweater? ;)
Happy Fashion Friday!
