Happy Friday!! I hope you’ve all had a great week – can you believe it is November? November. How did this happen?! You know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun!
Speaking of fun and time flying… in the theme of Friday’s Fab Favorites, today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite things right now. I’ve become what Chris would probably define as ‘obsessed’ with this game I discovered in the app store… it’s called COVET Fashion and I love it!! I read about the game and found out Rachel Zoe is the Brand Ambassador – and I don’t know about you, but I’m a total RZ fan! If she thinks it’s fab and stylish… well, it obviously is!
The scene above is a fairly typical snapshot of life right now, I’ve basically spent every evening of the last two weeks hijacking Chris’s iPad to play (and it’s on my iPhone to use during the day!)… to the point where Chris now asks, did you win any fashion challenges today? As fellow style lovers, I wanted to share it with you. Basically, you have an avatar (you can customize literally everything about them… makeup, hair color, hair style, skin color etc) and you dress them for various fashion challenges.
It takes me back to all the fun I had as a little girl playing dress-up’s and Barbie’s with my sister – but this is the super chic grown-up version. What I adore most is that the clothes are actually amazing… they are from all the best real life brands (including Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Minkoff, Joie) and it’s such a unique opportunity to build and style your very own dream wardrobe!
What I’ve also found fabulous is that I can try different outfit combinations, only limited by my imagination! I then submit the looks for style challenges and other users vote on them. It’s a great way to get a feel for whether other people think a look is gorgeous – and then if you win, you get more pieces in your closet (and sometimes, you even win real life fashion prizes). I thought I’d share with you a couple of style challenges I’ve won – and the themes are so fun too, like a lazy Sunday afternoon, shopping on Rodeo Drive and a getaway to St Lucia! I’d love to know your thoughts, which look do you like most…
I have to say (and yes, ok I’m probably biased), but I also particularly adored the look I created for an evening at an annual ballet gala event (it’s the first pic below)… although it only received 4 stars (tough crowd!). But I really do love that dress and leopard clutch – it just looks so glam and fun to wear! That’s what I love about COVET, you can have every girl’s dream wardrobe! What do you think of the other two looks? One was for an outing in Brooklyn and the other is for a day of sightseeing in Singapore…
If you’re looking for something seriously fun, it’s Friday after all, I’m sure you’ll become just as addicted as I have! I’d love love love to see some of your looks too – so screenshot and tweet / instagram them to me @stylelixir. You can download the COVET Fashion app here. Through my own experience I’ll also mention, when you sign up it’s worth taking the extra step to link the account to your email address… that way you can access it on any device. I have COVET on my iPhone and Chris’ iPad (now known as ‘our’ iPad), so I can play it during the day – it’s a fab little break from work. Plus, I love checking to see if I won any challenges!
So that’s basically what I’m loving right now! I can’t wait to see what you share as your favorite thing this week. Today, we’re joined by three lovely Co-Hosts… Laura from Laura Wears, Carolyn from CCMcAfee Perspective and Alana from Alana Marie. It’s always great to discover new blogs, so I hope you enjoy meeting them! If you’re interested in co-hosting, just email me for details. Remember… you can share anything and everything – a previous post, or a post about your favorite things. Whatever takes your fancy!
