Interview: Find Out What Your StyleSays


If you're a blogger (and if you're reading this then you most likely are) then you know how much fun it is to find a new online site that you just love. I mean, who isn't going ga-ga over Pinterest, sharing photos with Instagram, and creating sets with Polyvore?

The fact is, most bloggers love to find great websites that add to their online experience of shopping, sharing and styling.

And StyleSays is looking to be that next great website! Check out what Jess Lam, the creator of StyleSays, has to say about his site.
Shop with Confidence, Shop with StyleSays

Oh to Be a Muse: Tell us about yourself.
Jess Lam from StyleSays: My name is Jess and I started working on fashion sites with a couple friends back in June. We launched StyleSays in mid-September. Originally I’m from a small farming town in Oklahoma. Lots of corn and cows but not much couture. I came to California for school and haven’t been able to leave.

Muse: And what about the site?
SS: StyleSays is a place for close friends to meet online and shop hundreds of curated stores. The two biggest benefits to using StyleSays are 1) trusted advice from your friends and 2) sales notifications on specific items in your collections. The collections are essentially wishlists with sales updates that you can theme however you like. The overall goal is to help people make more confident purchases online through valued advice and pricing updates.

Muse: What's one big benefit of the online shopping experience?
SS: To talk with friends while you shop! We have both real-time chatting and offline messages, in case your friends aren’t on at the same time as you. So when you find an item you want advice on or just want to share you can click “Send to a friend” and they’ll see the item and message when they check their email or log onto StyleSays.

Muse: What is the biggest difference between your site and other sites? What sets you apart?
SS: We are really focused on helping you shop with real life friends. Many sites allow you to share clothing and pictures with a large, somewhat random audience. Expressing yourself in that way can be really fun but when you’re shopping you need something a little more valuable. Think of it like this, when you walk out of a fitting room you'd rather get your friend's opinion of your look rather than some random stranger shopping in the store with you. This is where StyleSays really separates itself.
To top it off, StyleSays is currently giving away two pairs of Uggs! Just visit their giveaway page and choose the friend you want to win with.

    I'm so not with the "trends" - I don't shop online, sites you mentioned above are all unfamiliar to me - "Pinterest, sharing photos with Instagram, and creating sets with Polyvore" - but that's why I like reading your blog. I'm always enriched;-)
