Last month I had the pleasure of attending an event thrown by My Fashion Plate and Lancome at the Lancome flagship store on the UWS. I was supposed to have a friend in tow, but she skipped town without telling me (you know who you are!) so I had to fly solo.


Alone, I ate enough cupcakes for two before I had a lovely makeover care of my personally assigned Lancome makeup expert. I was tempted to purchase their Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer and Blush Subtil Shimmer in Apricot but held back because I knew Broke-mas (not to be confused with Skintmas) was coming and my bank account was going to be a little….pathetic. Self indulgence had to wait.

Before makeover!
After makeover! WANT.



After I was beautified, I met with the owner of My Fashion Plate, Jessica Mandeville, for a demo of her fantabulous website! If you’re like me, you’ve had serious closet technology envy ever since you saw the movie Clueless. Thanks to My Fashion Plate, YOU CAN HAZ CLUELESS CLOSET! It’s just digital –and of course, FREE!

What you need to do is create an account, take pictures of all your clothes, jewelry and shoes. If photographing all your stuff is not likely to happen, you can import pictures of your stuff if it lives online. For example, if you bought/own this GUESS Annabelle Shirt Dress there’s no need to snap a photo yourself. You can import it to your My Fashion Plate closet using one of their widgets!

Besides categorizing all your clothes for you, you can put together outfits using their special outfit creating tools:

My Wardrobe – Virtual closet that enables members to clearly view their wardrobe and accessories and access them from anywhere
Design Studio – Mix-and-match pieces to create outfits for yourself or your friends (imagine Alicia Silverstone’s spinning wardrobe!)
My Outfits – A catalogue of your outfits
Style Calendar – Plan and organize outfits for upcoming events and remember what you have worn in the past (for those people with OCD outfit planning issues)
My Suitcase – Learn how to pack an effective suitcase
My Budget – Manage and organize fashion expenses
My Clippings – Collect fashion articles, items, outfits and videos you have found along the way Wish List – Keep a virtual list of must-haves

If you feel inept at putting together an outfit, no fear! My Fashion Plate has professional fashion consultants ready to assess your wardrobe and offer personalized advice. Sounds expensive, right? It’s actually quite cheap (and now you can get New York City advice even if you live in Little Rock, Arkansas).

Prices:
Wardrobe Assessment, $0.46 per item. Get your wardrobe in shape! Your stylist will suggest what to keep and what to throw.
Item or Outfit Assessment, $2.99 per assessment. Get feedback on an item or outfit.
Look Book, $3.99 per look. Your Stylist to put together a look from your wardrobe.
Personal Shopper, $4.99 per item; $14.99 per outfit. The Stylist to shop around for items or outfits for you.

I actually met one of their fashion consultants at the event – and he was sweeter than the cupcakes and champagne they served me.
The fashion consultant and Jessica!
