My New Obsession: All The Looks
I spend a lot of time on the computer. I'm a freelance writer for digital media, a blogger, and a social media lover. I don't watch much TV - I'd prefer to waste spend my free time reading one of my favorite fashion blogs, trying out a new tool for Twitter, or planning my next vacation - all of which I do from the comfort of my trusty little MacBook. In other words - I did not need one more thing to be addicted to, but it's too late. I am.
When my editor told me about "All The Looks" on myLifetime.com, I scurried over to check it out. She told me a lot about it, but, in all honesty, she'd had me at celebrity, style, and lookbook. I already have a username for the site so that I can write the very articles that you see posted here, so it was simple to get started on All The Looks by creating a Lookbook of styles that I enjoyed.
This is where the site gets dangerous for me. There are tens of thousands of celebrity looks to check out, classified by designer, hairstyle, hair color, accessory - you name it. I can get LOST in the thousands of fashionable pictures - I just have to remind myself not to drool on my keyboard. I decided to create a Carrie Underwood lookbook because a) I adore her style - I always marvel at how fantastic she looks, b) I love her music, and c) we were members of the same sorority and I kinda think that's cool. Here's a screen shot of my finished product:
See? I told you she has impeccable taste. (As does her stylist, Trish Townsend. Gotta give credit where credit is due!)
All The Looks also allows you to earn points as you create lookbooks, rate looks, share your lookbooks, etc. There is a leaderboard where you can see who has the most points, who is in the lead, etc. From now until the end of November, All The Looks is giving away $250 per day to the person who has the most points in a given day - so that means the more lookbooks, shared looks, etc. that you create - the better chance you have of winning. You can check out today's leaderboard to see the amount of points to beat - but it's totally doable! All The Looks is a win-win - a fun site, all about fashion and beauty, with a chance to win some cash to fuel your fashionista cravings! Yes, please!
