Coat Topshop Top RE:MU Pants Urban Outfitters Shoes Jennifer Chou
Hey guys! Taking a break from Paris posts because I'm possibly sinking a little into depression about not being there right now. Yes, I have a flair for the dramatic that way.
Anyway, a while ago I was asked to be part of a new style sharing site called Re.mu! You can see from my sidebar that I mostly post on Lookbook and Chictopia, but I think its really awesome that more of these style sharing sites are coming up because even though that encourages a whole new level of narcissism (I'll outgrow it one day, I think) it also provides more avenues for fashionspiration.
So the kind people over at Re.mu sent me this tank top to style and work into an OOTD, and in spirit of trying something different, well, see above. The tank is a racer back with a high-low hemline, which inspired me to try something a little more 'street' than my usual looks! The coat I usually wear lounging in bed at home (because its really a bathrobe) but I liked the print with the shoes. What do you guys think? Too over the top? This is probably not something I would wear out seriously, but for the sake of shooting, it was nice to try something different!
The interface is really user friendly and to sign up, all you need to have is a Facebook account and bam. You're in!
While sites like Lookbook are all about sharing complete looks, sometimes you just want to share a new pair of shoes or that fabulous new sweater you managed to dig up in a thrift store, which as you can see, is something that Re.mu lets you do! Just select a category, and follow the instructions to upload and share.
There's even a Shopping feature! When you get tired of looking at people and all their nice, pretty clothes, just switch to the Shop tab and you can actually buy those pretty things. I particularly like this function because I (duh) love online shopping and there's like a reprieve from outfit shots.
So, as an added incentive to sign up and start sharing, Re.mu will be giving away prizes! All you have to do is sign up via Facebook, upload your photo and the best shot will win...
Carmex lipbalm in the most amazing vintage-inspired packaging (imagine that in a clear acrylic clutch!), Organia hand cream, and mascara by Shiseido! Oh, and a Re.mu tank top, of course.
