Fashables is a men’s and women’s fashion blog highlighting clothing items that are reviewed by “normal’ish” people.
Contributors try on items that stand out and let you know their likes/dislikes, if they’d purchase the item, why it may/may not work for you, where to purchase the item… and anything else that comes to mind along the way.
When possible Fashables will take you right inside the dressing room and let you see exactly what the item looked like on. No kinky stuff though. If we can’t get a dressing room photo, rest assured that we’ve tried the item on first-hand and are speaking from experience.
The Inspiration Behind Fashables
Imagine that you’re shopping online and see a shirt you like. The shirt will be photographed on a model, and will be accompanied by a description written by the manufacture. [Now fast forward and pretend you ordered the shirt.]
Upon getting it at home you try it on and realize that the description written was a bit slanted, and that while you are perfect, the shirt doesn’t look as good on you as it did on the model that was a bit, “perfect’er.” You know, the one with the perfect body, personal trainer, dietitian, professional photographer – you get the point.
Fashables was created by Ryan Shell after the idea came to him while sitting in a Levi’s dressing room in Soho. He was waiting on a clerk to bring him another size pants and decided to take a photo (seen on the right) to pass the time. After seeing the photo the wheels started turning and the idea of creating Fashables was born. Ok, obviously there’s a bit more to it than that, but you’re probably tired of reading at this point. We would love to be one of your favorite fashion blogs and hope you’ll come back often. Click here to see our latest posts.
