Find fashion

Hi everyone,

You have probably all heard the news about the fashion Shazam that launched last week, called Style-Eyes. But doesn’t the concept sound familiar?? In September I wrote this article about Spot & Shop, a Dutch initiative from fashionista Nikky and Sanoma (yes the one from the magazines! ;))

Well today Spot & Shop launched their website (SpotnShop.nl) and I though it would be nice to write a short opinion piece on both concepts! Both concepts look a lot a like and I think both concepts have a lot to offer! While Style-Eyes is very digital, and probably has a computer search for matching items (They do have to do some updating; I have come across a couple of weird mistakes haha), Spot & Shop is a community where fashionista’s can help each other. So other like minded people do the searching for you! This means more work I guess, but also more accurate results based on how fashionista’s look at it. 

If you are searching for a particular item, I think Spot & Shop is the way to go! Most fashionista’s find their items within 3 hours, WOW! But I think that if you are walking in the city, while you are shopping and you see an item on an advertisement or on a celeb via Instagram, I think it’s best to use Style-Eyes. You probably won’t get a perfect match, but something that looks like it. To me personally, both concepts are useful. The Spot & Shop website for when I have more time and are looking for a particular item. And the Style-Eyes app for immediate look-a-likes!

Have you already tried one or both of the concepts?? Ciao!!

Hi everyone!

Imagine, you are looking for fashion inspiration online and suddenly you see this tee –>

You fall in love with it, just like I did, but well you can’t seem to find it online and so, nevermind, we’ll search for something else. Okay, this obviously is just a very cool DIY, but probably you did recognize the situation! Right? For this type of situation, you want something fashion wise but you just don’t know where or how to find it, there is Spot & Shop! 

Spot & Shop is a new fashionable community where you can upload the items you are searching for, for example if you saw a celeb like Miley Cyrus wear something cool (haha ;)) and you would want to have something that looks like it the Spot & Shop community can help you! You simply upload your want to have fashion item and the Spot & Shop community will help you with your search to that one fashion item (or a look-a-like) and will take care of the rest… Well okay, you still need to buy it yourself of course!


It’s pretty simple, you Spot, Spot & Shop finds what you are looking for and then you Shop!

Spot & Shop is very busy creating a Spot & Shop mobile app, but for now you can already join their community on Facebook: Spot & Shop! Check it out and let me know if you think you definitely needed something like this, or not, in the comment section below!
