Website TheStyleCure re-creates shopping mall experience
Now you can have a shopping mall experience without ever leaving your house. New website TheStyleCure allows consumers to digitally share, make comments on and buy clothing with help from their acquaintances, reported Springwise.
Former MySpace vice president Ryan Sit crafted the website to mimic the kind of interactions consumers have with their friends while browsing in a mall. But this virtual mall experience is not your average cluster of stores. Backed by Shopstyle, the website lists more than one million items from 300 stores, offering about 7,000 brands total.
Other programs, such as fashion application Snapette, offer a similar sense of social shopping. However, TheStyleCure is distinct in that shoppers interface with pre-listed items, sharing with friends via Facebook rather than simply uploading images of their must-have pieces.
Visitors can refine their searches by label, store, cost, sale and color. Favorite pieces can be easily saved and accessed by friends, who can then impart their advice to buy or not buy. The site also offers the option to select items for friends by uploading pieces to their wall. Users can fashion a wish list of whatever they are lusting after and purchase items with a convenient click.
