Fashion Tools: Poses & Obsessions

These days there are so many sites/apps/etc. out there that are made for anyone who loves fashion and/or shopping.  So many, that I think they can be a little overwhelming.

Realizing this I though it would be fun to share 2 of my favorite fashion tools — both as a blogger and a lover of fashion.

Ready?  Here we go:

Pose it is a mobile app similar to instagram.  The difference?  It is specifically for fashion & style photos.

According to the site: “Pose is a free app that lets you share and discover inspiring styles from around the world.”

Why I like this app?
It delivers on the inspiring.  Sometimes I find myself starved for ideas.  I look in my closet and see blah.  Pose is sort of a muse in your pocket.  I check out my phone and can see how others are styling themselves and suddenly my closet seems shiny and new.  By allowing me to create a feed full of photos taken by myself and others means inspiration is only a touch away.  (You know, because all the cool kids have touch screen phones 😉 )

Here are some of my recent poses:

Currently Obsessed
Love certain bloggers’ style?  Currently Obsessed gives you a chance to see/track & purchase their picks!

According to the site: “ allows you to stalk your favorite style bloggers and their obsessions.”

Why I like this site?
It acts as a personal shopper.  Okay, so maybe I spend inordinate amounts of time scouring the internet for  chic finds.  I’m guessing I’m in the minority.  For those of you who haven’t the time (desire?), Currently Obsessed  allows your fav bloggers to do it for you! You can stalk their picks, collect your favorite pieces & then shop!  Kind of amazing!

Here are some of my recent obsessions:

Do you Pose?  Are you Currently Obsessed?  Any other favorite fashion sites/apps?


  1. love Currently Obsessed, and looking forward to checking out Pose :-)

  2. I have Pose, but I haven’t actually used it yet. It’s so different from the typical social networking apps I use so it’s a bit intimidating. But I love looking through everyone else’s photos for inspiration! Maybe one of these days I’ll start Posing, too. And I’ve heard of CurrentlyObsesed but I don’t have an account there yet. It reminds me a bit of Fashiolista, StyleSays, ThisNext, etc. Sometimes there’s just too many sites to keep track of!

  3. Love, love, looove that little red dress. So sweet, simple, and flirty. Have I ever told you what great taste you have? 😉

  4. Currently obsessed sounds like a pretty neat app.

  5. I’m liking the CONCEPT of Pose, but it does not play well with my pathetic 3G phone. Despite that, I’m doing a 365 project with it. My Pose handle is SpyGirl

  6. I must admit….most of my fashion indulgence comes from your blog….wish I had more time, but such is life. Looooove the purse….I am a big purse fanatic.

  7. I love love love Pose!

  8. I haven’t used either yet, but totally want to!

  9. i’m not on currently obsessed just yet, but i do love pose and i love your reasons why you love it. =)

  10. I love the idea of currently obsessed! I can’t tell you how many times I buy stuff that I saw a fashion blogger wear. It’s better than a magazine!

  11. I know quite a few bloggers who use Pose, I haven’t yet, but there’s so many out there so I’d say experiment and choose what’s best for you. It can be overwhelming, most especially since there are loads of good ones. :-)

  12. I have never heard of either of them but i will definitely check them out.

  13. Thanks for sharing! I love it! Also, got your email, thanks and I look forward to what you come up with! :) Good to be back in touch.

    I have like 5 fashion apps but not ether of these. Still figuring out my favorites. Definitely going to check out these!
