"Timeless everyday style"

Taking The Plunge

As you may know I'm a regular uploader onto several outfit sharing sites & having recently been approached by Stylight to take a look at their site & post a review on my findings, I was curious to see how it differed from the other sites I upload to.

Of course a few months ago if you'd have told me I would be posting daily pictures of my outfits on such sites let alone writing a blog I'd of told you that there was about as much chance as pigs flying.  So what can I say pigs must have wings as I'm not only doing both but TOTALLY loving the experience!

So what is Stylight & what makes it different from the other outfit sharing sites out there?  Well quite simply it's a fashion lovers dream.  Not only can you post your daily looks you can also create collages incorporating photos, videos, quotes, music & products, in effect your own virtual scrapbook that members can view & get to 'heart' (vote) & follow.  Together with of course being able to vote & follow others whose style you might aspire to.  And let's face it seeing how others put together an outfit can be inspirational for all of us, as often you will see something you love but not necessarily have thought about wearing & may even find you have similar items in your wardrobe to recreate the look from.

As well as being a great place to steal other people's style, they have a great magazine section, which allows you to keep up to date on fashion trends & contains articles from popular fashion bloggers showing you how to style the latest looks of the season.

And if that wasn't enough Stylight also features shops on it's website which contain over 5,000 fashion brands & millions of products meaning not only can you post, you can also shop all in the same site....talk about heaven for us fashion lovers/shopaholics....I mean seriously this site should come with a credit card warning as it is SERIOUSLY lethal for your bank balance!!!

It's also extremely easy to join & pretty straight forward to use - set up only takes a few minutes & after that well there'll be no stopping you.....you'll just need to clear at least a whole day in your diary so you can experiment, explore & have fun after enrolling.

Of course you may well already have considered joining such a site in the past but have been put off by various concerns.  I must admit before I took the plunge to upload to such sites I was worried about the reaction I would get, with one of my main areas of concern being the worry that I may face a whole host of abuse & negativity, with people wondering who & what I thought I was.  But I can honestly say since joining I have found some great daily inspiration not to mention made some lovely new friends along the way too.  I really can't recommend joining enough & now find myself in the position of adding Stylight to my daily list of sites to post to.  All I need now is some serious me time with a completed to do list (nothing that a Fairy Godmother couldn't fix!) so that I can start recreating some collages.

So while I'm day dreaming of a cleared to do list here's a round up of what I've been wearing these last few days & if you fancy following me on Stylight then click here to see my profile.

So have you heard of Stylight?  Perhaps you're already registered....if so let me know your profile name & I can follow you.  Or perhaps you post to one of the other sites I use or one I've yet to discover?  Or have you been quietly thinking about joining up but just before hitting the 'sign up' button get cold feet.  

As always let me know you thoughts & if you're worried about joining one of these communities seriously give it a go it's great fun, totally makes your day when you get lovely feedback & just think of all the lovely & amazing women you're missing out on in your life.....SERIOUSLY there's some great friends to be made.
