You know how it goes: you are going on a shopping trip along and then end up sending photos of your outfits to friends so you can ask for their opinion? I do it all the time! My mom’s phone is full of photos of my shoes, bags, and other items I’ve been hunting for. Same goes for Ben: he is my on demand fashion adviser who knows that if I’m sending him a blurry photo with a question mark underneath, it’s his primary responsibility to immediately provide his opinion on that particular piece. Luckily to all of my friends, I recently explored a new iPhone app that allows sending your “to buy or not to buy” requests not only to closest friends but also to the bigger fashion community. The app is called Pin and Tucker and it’s a cool new way to shop, save money, and interact with your friends.
To demonstrate how easy and fun it is to use the app, yesterday I went on a trip to DASH boutique in Soho and documented it on my InstaStories (check out my videos until they disappear!). I spent a good hour in the store trying on all sorts of outfits and accessories and sharing them with my friends and followers via Pin and Tucker. After taking into consideration all of my friends ratings, I picked this cool Fedora hat by Brixton. I figured that it would be a super versatile and essential piece for fall. As you see on these photos, I already started wearing this hat and I love it!
Let me tell you a bit about how the app works. Basically, it sends a notification to my followers every time you are requesting a fashion advice so they can vote as “yay” or “nay” for a specific item. The best thing about using this app is that you know that you are getting advice from people that you trust, but you don’t really know how they voted. That way, you avoid one of the friendship traps when your bestie hates the dress you are picking, but she doesn’t want to tell you that as she is afraid hurting your feelings. In other words, Pin and Tucker helps people to receive honest opinions on the items you are considering buying in a most convenient way possible: if you need advice on the item, the app automatically sends a request to all of your followers so you don’t need to text them individually.
How about an extra bonus? When you share your looks with friends using Pin and Tucker app, you can save some money at selected stores as the app offers discounts when you are shopping. Isn’t it a fashionista’s dream come true?
I really want you to experience the convenience and fun of using Pin and Tucker too!
