Why I love Lookbook.nu


You may have noticed that I have added a Lookbook.nu application to the right hand side of my blog, in short its because I'm obsessed with the site. For those who do not already know about the website it refers to itself as 'an international experiment in style', inspired by street style blogs like The Sartorialist, which amass thousands of hits per day, the site gives you the opportunity to upload your looks every day, vote or 'hype' up the photos you like and in turn this gives the good looks better 'karma' and builds people's reputation as stylists.

It's an invite only community, so you need to email the site to see when invites become available. What I like about the site is that you can see where people have been getting their clothes from, so if you check out the UK looks and see something that you want to get your hands on you can see where its from.

There are also brand tags so, for example you can check out all of the looks that are wearing a particular label such as A.P.C. Overall the site is truly inspiring, created by a girl and a gent from San Francisco, the looks inspire me everyday, long live Lookbook.nu

Below are some of my favourite looks from the U.K.

I feel sorry for all you 23 people begging for an invite.

Dont send them one.! We have to keep lookbook as it is, a private fashion lover community.

pleasee dont ruin the website :(

lookbooksarah said...

Hmm..

I am planning only to give out ONE invite code thus paying it forward.

I do agree that lookbook.nu should be kept to a minimum when it comes to memberships - it actually makes the website more of a sensation when it is so exclusive.

Also, it keeps those who really want to be in lookbook.nu a chance to shine instead of being drowned out by looks that weren't well thought of or well put together.

Lookbook is an amazing website. I like to get inspiration and ideas for my own outfits :)
