Instagram Shopping on the hottest new app – Like to know it!

28 October, 2014

Recently, I was lucky enough to interview the fabulous Coco Rocha, queen of posing, catwalks and social media. Her advice when we asked for some social media tips was to get on all the new apps – you never know which ones may take off and become the next Twitter or Instagram! Well, when Coco Rocha gives you advice you can’t exactly ignore it, so we decided to try out the hottest new app on Instagram, LIKEtoKNOWit.

So what exactly is LIKEtoKNOWit? If you’re an avid Instagrammer (don’t lie… we all are!) then the days of longingly staring at your favourite bloggers outfits in envy may be over. LIKEtoKNOWit gives you the chance to find out what exactly they’re wearing and where you can buy it. Simply like a photo with a LIKEtoKNOWit link and you’ll be emailed a list of the products with links to where to buy them… it’s just another way to make online shopping a whole lot easier! As if we needed another excuse to shop…

We’ve noticed this shopaholic app popping up all over our feeds. From supermodels to magazines to fashion bloggers, everyone in the fashion world seems to be getting in on the action. Some notable Instagram accounts that you’ll see with the LIKEtoKNOWit links are:

And now Sassy is jumping on the bandwagon and trying it out! Yes, you may see a couple of LIKEtoKNOWit links pop up on our Instagram account, and we’re going to be totally honest and say we may earn a tiny bit of commission if anyone actually purchases through this. But, we promise you that we’ll only ever post things we really do love, are Sassy approved and that we think you’ll love too. It’s such an easy way to buy and anything that saves time in HK’s fast-paced environment can help! Stay tuned and follow us @sassyhongkong to see what we’re wearing, what we’re coveting and how you can shop for the coolest things we come across!

If you’re intrigued by the thought of snapping up your favourite Instagram styles then simply find out how to sign up here. There’s even a video tutorial that takes you through how to sign up and what to expect once you get on it, easy! So if you love fashion, Instagram and might just be a bit of a shopaholic, then this new app is definitely worth checking out. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you when your next credit card bill comes in!
