Ever since Facebook invited web developers to create applications for Facebook just a few months ago, we’ve seen applications pop up for everything under the sun – from sending free gifts, adding video and photos to your Fun Wall and even biting your friends and turning them into Vampires.
But did you know there are literally hundreds of fun applications for fashion and shopping lovers? Here’s just a few:
A social shopping website, Stylefeeder’s application lets you show off your personal style. Just bookmark any product as you shop online and add it to your profile and share your favorites with your friends.
I could spend hours playing with Polyvore. You can create fashion “sets” with real products from real stores, or browse what other fashion mavens have created and post them on your Facebook profile. On Polyvore.com, you can search by keyword and find relevant sets, for example “kimono” or “magenta.” The neatest thing is that you can click through to buy any item online, so you can complete your wardrobe or find the perfect accessories.
Social Shopping Mall
Mallicious is a deal-sharing website that created an application that allows you to surf its coupons and offers from inside Facebook. Find discounts, free shipping, coupon codes and even exclusive offers for Facebook users from top online stores, and share deals with your friends on your profile.
My Fab Bag
Ladies love designer handbags, but for most of us, these are a luxury we
can’t afford. But with My Fab Bag you get $5,000 virtual dollars for
Dolce, Vuitton, Coach or whatever your heart desires – to gift to your
girlfriends or display on your profile. This application has over 9,000
daily active users.
Fashion Trend Voting
Think HotOrNot meets Glamour Dos and Don’ts. Vote on clothing, accessories and celebrity outfits as hot or not and see how others voted. Hours of fun.
