I have such an exciting post to share with you today! I got the great opportunity to work with this company called Trendage.
Trendage is a brand new fashion website & app. With Trendage, you build beautiful looks using products from top retailers. Easily mix & match between different brands to express & build your style. Every clothing product in every look you create is available for purchase from the shops you love most.
What an amazing concept, right? When they asked me to work with them of course I said yes. Let me tell you why I’m so excited about this app: When I was a little girl I used to play with paper dolls. I would cut out models from magazines, and would even go as far as cutting out different clothes, to tape them on top of the model, to create different looks. I’ve always had a fashionable imagination!
I feel like this app was made for me! I often find myself online extensively searching for apps or websites that can help me put looks together. I like that this feels like the grown-up version of paper dolls and it gives me a nostalgic feeling reliving those times.
The good thing about this app is that its free. Setting up my account was as easy as creating a user name and a password. Once inside the app, it was very easy to navigate. The main menu contains 5 sections, which are: Vote (Which gives you the option to vote on your favorite look), Want (Based on the looks you like and create), Create A Look (This is the main reason for the app, this is where the fun begins). There you can virtually dress your model in anything that you want, they have selections from shirts, pants, dresses, jewelry, bags and even shoes, the possibilities are endless with this section. When you’re satisfied with the look you can save it and it’ll be saved on your profile. The last two sections are: Profile, and Settings.
I’ve been playing around with this app for a couple of weeks now and I did spot some differences, from the experience using the website. The main one is that the app is still sometimes slow, which, it’s not a deal breaker, and I’m sure that with future updates it’ll be taken care of. Another thing that I’ve noticed is that the website gives you the option to purchase the piece of clothing, So does the app but it is a little tricky to find. You have to look Under Vote or My Profile sections, if you click the 3 dots next to a look, it will bring up another panel that shows the retailer name, price and a buy button. Clicking the buy button will take you to the retailer’s website.
One thing that I’ve noticed is that you don’t get the option to layer. On the website or the app For example, I wanted to try a look of a jacket on top of a dress, and unfortunately at this moment it either chooses the dress or the jacket. Another example is putting boots on top of jeans, it will always put the boots under the jeans. Still, not a deal breaker, just observations :)
This app has given me countless hours of entertainment. I thoroughly enjoy using this app, I love the high quality of images used (I like that I can see all the details in the clothing). Everything in this app is very fashion forward and all the clothing is on trend. Gosh! I wish I was the model being dressed in the app! :)
Below you will find some pictures of the app in action. I want to give a big thank you to Trendage for giving me this opportunity! Make sure you download the app and visit their website (www.trendage.com)
