Introducing Fashonify: Get paid for your fashion advice!

Have you ever looked back at old photos and thought, “Why did I wear that”? (Be honest, we all have. I’ll admit it, I have been guilty of some fashion blunders.) If only there was a way to prevent future occurrences.  If only we could all have our own personal stylists assuring that we always look camera ready…

Well, now we can, thanks to Fashonify, a new social network where fashion-lovers (and those in need of some style help) exchange advice on their current fashion dilemmas.  Instead of just getting a second opinion, you will get feedback from countless fashionable users on  It’s like Mecca for the stylish.  Plus, it’s easy to join: just create a username and password, start uploading your looks that you want feedback on, and soon, you will have ample amounts of fashion advice.

You can gain feedback on anything style related: an outfit for an important occasion, a dress you’re not sure you should purchase, your new nail polish color, even what color you should dye your hair.  Currently, I am on the hunt for the perfect night outfit for the winter weather, so I would want to post a few potential looks to see which one Fashonify users favor.  For those of you planning to take advantage of “Cyber Monday”, why not poll Fashonify before you purchase those designer boots?

And while you’re there, don’t forget to give feedback on others users’ polls; the more helpful your advice, the more likely other users are to send you a “thank-you” in the form of money. Yes, money!  For example, say your advice saves someone from making the wrong first impression at a job interview.  That person will probably want to thank you for helping them land the job, and they can do so by sending you a little cash.  Then, on the 15th of every month, Fashonify gives you 70% of everything you have earned.

Wait, so you mean to tell me that people can pay me for my style advice that I usually give for free… Why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner?  Seeing as I recently spent my life savings traveling Europe during my semester abroad, this concept behind Fashonify immediately caught my attention.   And with the holiday season upon us, everyone knows that any extra cash helps.

Not only does Fashonify allow you to indulge in your love of fashion, but it also rewards you with a little extra money that can go towards that sweater you’ve been longing for. Just make sure you ask for advice before you buy it!

As if you need another reason to sign up for Fashonify… The user that earns the most points by December 10, 2011 will win a $150 PiperLime gift card!!  What are you waiting for?  See you on Fashonify!

A lot to be thankful for:

Happy early Thanksgiving (to my American readers)!! Wishing you a great holiday, from across the pond.

I’ve been stumbling “Thanksgiving” and “recipes” all day long, and I must admit, it’s making me a little homesick. I’m one of those people who likes traditions, especially during the holidays. Usually, I get upset when one of my family members can’t make a holiday, but this year I am the one who will be missing. I won’t get the chance to say what I am thankful for… and I have a lot to be thankful for this year.

Luckily, I will be cooking Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow with some of my Alpha Delta Pi sisters, friends from my home university, and new friends! I think it will be fun to celebrate the holiday in a new way. The only thing I am not looking forward to is having class tomorrow…

What are you doing for Thanksgiving? More importantly, what are you wearing?! 

I’m thinking of wearing something like this outfit I wore in Paris! FYI: If you didn’t know, that is the fountain that Andy (Anne Hathaway) throws her phone into when she walks away from Paris Fashion Week in The Devil Wears Prada. I just had to take a picture in front of it, even though I would never walk away from Paris Fashion Week!

Cheers! XO 

Laundry day…

Isn’t laundry day is the worst?

This morning, my only clean socks were my new knee-high socks, so I threw them on with boots.  Problem was, I had no idea what outfit to wear with them. My usual go-to skirts were in the dirty pile, so I rummaged through my closet. I threw on the first dress I saw, but it didn’t work. Next dress… Third one was the charm. Did I mention I woke up five minutes before my class started? Obviously, I was late. Priorities??

It’s hard when you’re surrounded by wealthy European students who wear designer clothes every day. I can’t just run to class in my pajamas! Oh, well.  My outfit actually turned out pretty cute.

I need some outfit inspiration. What do you wear on laundry day? 

This picture was taken after I did laundry. Happy Tuesday night!! Cheers! XO

Current obsession…

My mustard colored skirt that brightens up any outfit.  Today definitely called for some brightening. I’m currently rocking the skirt with thick tights, boots and layered sweaters because my room is an ice box. The now unyielding cold weather is just another reminder that I only have three weeks left here…

Although, I am trying to make the most of it. Fortunately, everything in London has been transformed into a beautiful winter wonderland. There are Christmas lights and decorations everywhere, festivals, ice skating, and Christmas markets (which I am most excited about). My wallet is definitely taking a beating. Only three weeks left to shop in London? Obviously I am taking advantage of the opportunity. I still need to buy some souvenirs. But let’s be honest, I’ll probably end up purchasing more clothes than anything…

What’s on your holiday shopping list?

Love this skirt. With my sorority sister, Meg Ghezzi!

Obviously, not a winter outfit. That's because I was on a cruise from Greece to Turkey!

Did I say it was almost Christmas? Ehh, I'm still on holiday.

Cheers! XO
