Go Chic or Go Home

Thursday, June 23, 2011
I was recently introduced to a new fashion community website called Go Chic or Go Home. You can upload your outfit pictures, upload pictures of your clothes from your closet and then create outfits, shop, meet new fashion-forward friends, and easily participate in Kendi's 30x30!!

Outfit Pictures

If you're interested in fashion blogging but don't want to make that plunge yet, I say check out this site to practice your outfit pictures and get the hang of documenting your clothes and outfits online.

Clothes Pictures

This is my FAVORITE feature on GCOGH and undoubtedly its strongest. You can upload pictures of your clothes and then create little outfits online. It's nice to see your clothes all laid out on one page instead of strewn all over the floor and your bed. ..Just me? I just wish GCOGH could scan my closet and automatically upload them as pictures onto their site...with an accompanying magic wand, of course. It would be a great way to plan your 30x30...and regular outfits too for all the fashion bloggers who like all their clothes too much to pick 30 favorites. (Me.) I've uploaded my favorite items in my closet right now but I still want to go back and do everything including my jewelry, scarves, and belts and just pump out 10 or so outfits for those days when my creative juices are drained! And let's face it.. it happens at the most inconvenient times...like when you're late to work...or you just want to get a taco from the taco truck down the street but it's already been a half hour and you still can't figure out what to wear! I hate those days.

Shopping

While you're uploading pictures and creating outfits, you can also do some shopping! You can sift through their products by category, designer, store, price, and color. What I don't like about it is how it loads. Instead of having it by page, it loads like Pinterest and LOOKBOOK.nu where once you reach the bottom, it loads more each time.

You can also wishlist items that you'll buy later...or nonchalantly leave your laptop open at that page for your husband to "see." HINTHINTHINTHINT.

My Thoughts

All in all I really do like this site and its concept. It has a lot of potential and still requires some work...e.g., I'm not sure if I like how the tabs are set up at the top and left.

If you want to sign up and use this site, be prepared to commit some time to it! You'll have to take all your clothes pics and add details and stuff but I think once you get past all that it'll be worth it to see everything you have on "paper." Then you'll see how much stuff you have and give some to me, yes? If you're interested, let me know in a comment below and I can send you an invite!


You can follow GCOGH on Twitter and Facebook and stay updated on their blog.

By the way, this wasn't a sponsored post but a review. I tried out their website for a week or so and this is all my opinion!! Mineminemine!!

  2. I just signed up for this site. I can't wait to upload pictures of my wardrobe - though that could take awhile. :p This is going to be so awesome for days like you said, "when my creative juices are drained!" :)

  3. I really love their outfit-creating capability for sure, but I am soooo lazy, taking photos of my wardrobe just seems so time consuming...

  6. Sounds like a great website!  I'll have to go take a look.  Such a neat thing to help out.  and I agree with Liana, oddly it does remind me of the "clueless" closet.

  8. I just found this site a few days ago and I agree, it is really cool.  I was looking for something like this for a while...it does take some time to set up, but I look forward to using it to "visualize" my closet and the outfit possibilities!

  9. This site sounds really great! I love the premise. In fact, it reminds me of that scene in clueless when Cher is trying to find the perfect first day of school outfit. hahahaha, I love it! May I have an invite please? My email address is camille@thedeweydecimals.com.

    Thank you for the review! You're great Elaine (I'm also happy to follow you on pinterest!)

  13. I really like the site, I checked it out a few weeks ago. I just felt like I didn't need one more place to spend time on the internet. But, if i took the time to upload my clothes it would be very helpful.

  21. I already take photos of my clothes & upload to iphoto so I can scroll through outfits in the morning and save myself trying on an handful of things I don't like. I also like to get ready in 20 minutes or less and still look great.  As I purchase an item, I take a photo of it with at least 3 items from my closet. So, I have minimum 3 new outfits each time I purchase something.
