Web Review: Looklet.com
by The Fashion Cult
When I first discovered Polyvore.com, I was completely smitten. After spending hours on made-for-kids dress up sites, Polyvore was heaven-sent. Nowadays I’m far to busy to spend so much time with it, but it’s still a favorite. Enter, Looklet.com. I came across the site while reading one of my blog buddies Glowing Doll. I’ve only just registered but I can see already it has the potential to be a new, time-consuming love e-ffair.
The key word here is potential. I definitely love that you can see the looks you create on “real” bodies, which makes a look that might look drab on the hanger look fab on the model. I also love that you can see your look from the back as well. On the downside, the selection is poor. One of the best things about Polyvore is that if you can’t find what you’re looking for on the site, you can go grab it from somewhere on the Web. Looklet is in Beta and I’m guess they will broaden there selection, but they will never be able to offer the self-stocking the way that Polyvore does. The site is also still quite buggy, but that’s understandable for a new venture. All in all it’s a cool site, but it can’t replace my beloved Polyvore.

I can’t stop using Looklet! AHHHH, it’s taken over!
I’m glad you like it. If it wasn’t for Mademoiselle Robot, though I’d still be cutting and pasting on Polyvore.
…you are right about the selection though, the dresses definitely leave something to be desired but they’re new and hopefully they will get better and better. Maybe they could introduce a ‘submit an item’ feature.
