Daily Distraction: The Mints
Posted by Katie Ostoich on April 17, 2012 at 1:10 PM
Ok, so I might have an online shopping problem (if my husband were reading this, he’d be nodding for sure). At least most of the time it's just browsing. That makes it ok, right? I tend to find such cool things while I browse...and I just stumbled on these super cool new ways to shop, called the “mints.” Started by a company called BeachMint, BeautyMint, StyleMint, JewelMint, and ShoeMint are “next generation social commerce” companies. Basically, they are collections of shoes, beauty products, jewelry and t-shirts curated and designed in partnerships with major celebs (like Kate Bosworth, the Olsen twins, and Rachel Bilson).
You sign up for the service and then take a quick, 5-minute style profile quiz. Every month you’re sent a showroom where the celebrities and stylists have hand picked designs especially for you and your style. It feels like you have your own personal stylist who did all the work for you! You can then pick or skip, there’s no obligation to buy if you don’t have the funds that month or just aren’t feeling any of it.
Even purchasing is easy…everything is based on credits and cost the same (for example, the shoes are all $80). They provide exclusive styling tips and trend reports – plus, there’s always free shipping both ways in case you change your mind!
I love how easy it is to find styles that match my personal look, there’s seriously no guesswork involved! Access the 4 “mints” here.
