Event: Regent Tweet 23rd June

Regent Tweet Logo

I’m very excited this year to be invited to participate in Regent Tweet.

The Regent Tweet website describes the event as follows.

“Regent Tweet is an experiential shopping and lifestyle event for women that engages Regent Street’s fashion and lifestyle shops, bars and restaurants with online influencers. The itinerary includes lectures at the Apple Store, workshops and many opportunities to receive complimentary products and experiences. The SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED™ Lounge and Concept Store will serve as the Regent Tweet Hub, where you can tweet and blog to your heart’s content and relax.”

I’m looking forward the starting the day with a free pastry at Tibits, hoping to be one of the lucky girls to get a free pair of sandals at Ugg and taking part in a cupcake masterclass at Whole Foods.

Will it all work out this way on the day? Follow the hash tag #regenttweet or check back on www.girlgeekchic.com on Sunday to find out!

If you love fashion and tech: www.evesapple.com

Eve’s Apple a premier online boutique for women with a love of designer fashion announced a first-in-industry collaboration with Adobe Scene7, purveyor of outstanding technology in online imaging. Eve’s Apple is pioneering the “autospin” model, where a visitor is immediately greeted with a 360-revolution of the designer item in question.

You are able to zoom to 10,000 pixels and revolve the product at will, rendering the piece in three-dimensional detail. In working with other industries, Adobe Scene7 has measured a startling uptick in conversion rates, owing to its industry-leading image renderings.

“Thanks to Adobe Scene7, we are now able to deliver stunning 360-degree fashion photography that captures each intimate, alluring detail of the items we sell. Every exquisite piece tantalizes and taunts,” elaborates Eve’s Apple co-founder Sari Turner. “Like a virtual dressing room, the enchanting, interactive technology brings these high-quality images to life, inviting visitors to zoom, spin, choose color options and play with their own beguiling style. Shopping from the comfort of your own home has never been so fun, so free-spirited or so personal.”

 The e-boutique offers the latest in woman’s designer fashion, shoes, and accessories by classic names like Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Catherine Malandrino, Guiseppe Zanotti, and Anna Sui, plus new favorites from House of Harlow, Nanette Lepore, Mara Hoffman and many more.

 EvesApple.com is the brainchild of long-time business partners and Louisiana boutique owners, Sari Turner and Michele Percy. It provides an online shopping experience that exudes both style and state-of-the-art design — both in the realms of fashion and e-commerce.

Shopstyle: how to never leave your house again!

As you might guess from the name, ShopStyle is a shopping app. It’s available on the iPad and iPhone and Nikki blogged about it when it first came out. ShopStyle is one of my favourite apps, here’s why…

ShopStyle has access to a great range of different clothing (and shoes! and accessories!) brands from economical basics to designer extravaganza. Starting from A some of the brands available are: Alexander McQueen, Alexander Wang, Agent Provocateur, All Saints, American Apparel – hopefully you get the picture.

The products, diverse in the extreme in terms of price and quality, appear side by side in the app by default, which is slightly surreal. To tailor the view to suit your personality (and budget) you can filter by Brand, Store, Size, Colour, Price, Sale and custom Keywords.

The app is in the classic iPad design and features a short description, price and lovely pictures for each item. The layout, speed of search and quantity of items make this a much nicer experience than using the shops’ own websites.

To purchase an item you are taken to the shops’ own site, meaning you have to set up several accounts and can’t make cross-shop purchases in one go. However, although this is irritating, as an IT professional I understand why they have structured the site this way – they’re reusing the existing stock systems that the shops have already invested in. If ShopStyle had decided to track each store’s inventory directly, this would have taken so much effort for each shop that the app would never have got off the ground.

There is also a small bonus for iPad users, as the current system means that ShopStyle must therefore have checked that the websites work with Safari on iPad (unlike some other big brand sites!).

ShopStyle is an absolute life saver for me and means that I actually have some clothes, when I wouldn’t have time to go shopping otherwise!

If you haven’t tried it, please do give it a go. Even if you don’t buy anything, you can now window shop from the luxury of your own home/iPad/iPhone whatever your gadget of choice is!
