TheStyleCure: Start of the Online Shopping Revolution
By Morrie Conway
TheStyleCure, the new online project for former MySpace VP Ryan Sit, is seeking to change the way people shop online by engaging social networks to make it more like going to the mall with friends instead of shopping online alone.
TheStyleCure currently lists over 1 million products from 300 stores and 7,000 brands online through ShopStyle’s API. The articles of clothing you search for can be sorted through brands, clothes, shoes, accessories and more, and you can share the one’s that you like with your friends on Facebook. Your friends can then comment on the items in your “stream” and help you pick out new outfits based upon what you have favorited.
The website was built in less than 30 days by Ryan Sit but it does provide a new shopping experience that I fully expect to see more of. The site could definitely use some improvements but that will come in time. I think that this is just the beginning of the online shopping revolution.
