Many a fashionista's first fond fashion memory is cutting out an underwear-clad paper doll in a "fashion" pose along with accompanying tops, bottoms, shoes and accessories from a sheet of "mix n' match" outfits. Later in life, this tends to morph into shopping expeditions with fashion-minded girlfriends and/or stylish gay boyfriends, rifling through the racks and holding up a fabulous dress/skirt/blouse/pant and tossing suggestions back and forth as part of the "hmmm...you could wear it with this, or that, or even..." game. Which usually means you have to buy it, wear it, and hope your look lives up to promise.
For the same fun but without unstylish worries about credit card bills, fit, weather, or having the right footwear, try our new FT Matches application! Simply join the community (it's free & fabulous & filled with other likeminded types...we promise!) and then start building outfits. How? Scroll through the various categories of clothing, find a dress you like, a skirt that catches your eye, or perhaps some groovy pants - add accessories, give your match a worthy name & a quick description of where to wear it, and hit publish. Other members of the community will rate your looks (and you theirs) At the end of each month, we'll award a cool prize for the best prize, and automatically enter it into the running for most popular outfit of the year! Note: we collaborated with FashMatch on this application & want your feedback - good, bad, indifferent, helpful...send it all to Jon@FashMatch.com.
