Canâ€™t remember what you wore when?Â Need some help organizing your (or your clientsâ€™) press appearances?Â This handy site can help.Â Itâ€™s a web-based clothing journal that allows you to record what you wore when, how you accessorized, and who saw you in it.Â A GREAT tool â€“ especially if youâ€™re photographed a lot.Â A MUST for the socialite, celebrity, or politico â€“ or anyone who likes to be organized.
There are LOTS of wedding sites out there, but Style Me Pretty is unique.Â It showcases wedding stories with INCREDIBLE pictures, giving you a glimpse into some truly beautiful weddings.Â If you like to read the Sunday wedding notices in the paper, or if youâ€™re looking for a little inspiration for your wedding or that of someone you know â€“ or even if you could just use some good entertaining ideas for your next shindig, check out this site.Â You wonâ€™t be disappointed.
Think only guys dig cool techno-toys?Â Not so!Â Pop Gadget reviews all the latest technical doohickeys to hit the market – from a WOMANâ€™S perspective.Â If you like your gadgets, youâ€™ll LOVE Pop Gadget (part of the Pop Sugar Empire) to help you sort through the various trends, toys, and luxury items available.
Like purses?Â Have a â€œthingâ€ for handbags?Â Wish you could spend your days reviewing designer bags?Â Thatâ€™s the inspiration behind Purse Blog, a blog about, well — purses.Â They purr over the cool bags, make fun of the bad ones, and rant about the high prices of all of them on a regular basis.Â Itâ€™s fun AND addictive, even if youâ€™re more of a shoe, jewelry, or jacket kind of gal. . .
The twenty-something writer behind this site offers a fresh approach to fashion, reviewing trends, collections, and products not normally seen in the mainstream.Â She loves German designers, vintage clothing, and independent boutiques.Â Her â€œHow to Get 80â€™s Hairâ€ Video is a hoot (Edward Scissorhands was her role model)!
For the handful of men on this list â€“ and for women who like to learn/read/lust after well dressed men â€“ this menâ€™s style portal is a must see.Â Cool cars, great architecture, amazing fashion, hot women â€“ everything a stylish man could want. Except, of course, a way to pay for it allâ€¦
