SHOPPING FROM INSTAGRAM - HOW TO USE THE LIKETOKNOW.IT APP

If you are on the Instagram platform I'm sure you've scrolled across your favorite influencers post and read "Just follow me on the LIKETOKNOW.IT App and shop my look here"  Here is a "how to" for downloading the LikeToKnow.It App and shopping your favorite styles with a simple screenshot. FYI with the Nordstrom Sale coming up, this will be helpful for finding your favorite items before they sell out.

I have several influencers I love to follow for inspiration and styling tips. You can get creative with clothing and accessories you already own.

You can shop a look from head to toe, and here's how.

Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app on your smartphone in the app store.

 App Store

App Store

If you follow me and other influencers on Instagram, you’re probably already familiar with the LIKEtoKNOW.it. platform. If you're not familiar, this app allows you to shop the outfits, home goods, and etc. your favorite influencers post on Instagram. When you screenshot the photo you will receive an email with the photo and the items you saw in your inbox. But... here's the easiest way...

There's an upgrade now, and you no longer need to check your email for shopping.

HOW DO YOU USE IT?

Once you download the app, simply search for your favorite influencers. Tap the search symbol at the bottom of your screen or type in the name at the top - ex: Janetgunngratefulgardenia - in the influencer search box.
You’ll see my account or your other favorites pop up quickly - simply tap "follow"  Once you are following me, all my posts will pop up in your LTK feed on the home screen. You can also just tap any photo of mine in the app and image product links will pop up and are ready to shop from.

STEP 1 - GO TO THE APP STORE

STEP 2 - TYPE IN LIKE TO KNOW IT

STEP 3 - DOWNLOAD THE APP

STEP 4 - TYPE JANETGUNNGRATEFULGARDENIA IN THE SEARCH BOX of the app

STEP 5 - CLICK FOLLOW

STEP 6 - CLICK IMAGES TO SHOP

STEP 7 - YOU’RE DONE!

It’s super easy and makes it so much simpler to shop your favorite looks. Now with the app, you no longer have to wait for an e-mail. You can still ‘like’ my photos on Instagram and get the email if that’s what you prefer!  The screenshot just simplifies and makes it much easier. So, if you ever see that little “heart” icon in the corner of my pics (on ANY influencer pg.), that mean’s you can get the outfit details through a screenshot. Not all of us use the heart image all the time, but if you have downloaded the app you'll know when we are posting a LIKETOKNOW.IT post. Influencers who are members of Rewards Style use the liketoknow,it app so we can   share our picks with you.

 Some images have the HEART symbol - some don't. (personal choice)

Some images have the HEART symbol - some don't. (personal choice)

Liketoknow.it is a helpful service for shopping your favorites. it's easy and after a few times, you'll see how simple it is.  it allows you to quickly buy anything you see in an Instagram Photo when you look at the "liketoknow.it tag. 

IMG_3350.jpg

 Just tap on the photo and you'll see the liketoknow.it tag (pictured above)  & other tags that might interest you. If you don't see the exact items in the photo available, we do our best to find other items that are similar and different price ranges. 

INSTA STORIES - ANOTHER SHOPPING OPTION

IMG_3371.jpg

Tap on Red circle above my name to see and shop Insta Stories.

IMG_3366.jpg

In the Instagram Stories - round icon at the top of page - scroll thru stories and you will sometimes see a "Swipe Up" option at the bottom right corner. Swipe up and the link to the item you like will take you directly to the site.

I hope this was helpful and now you can stay connected with the influencers you like to follow. Now that Instagram has added the IGTV - Instagram TV - most bloggers are spending time on the Instagram platform. We hope to see you there!

Have fun shopping & thank you for following along!

I've added a shopping carousel here as I do on most blog post if you are not on the Instagram platform.

LITTLE BLUE TRAVEL DRESS

The minute we begin to plan our summer vacation I begin to go on the hunt for stylish dresses that effortlessly pack. It's not always so easy to find dresses that cover up all the right places, but this little number worked for me.

I came across this blue dress from Planet Blue  I'm always a fan of their flowy dresses perfect for summer and especially an Italian holiday! 

With this dress, all you need is a pair of  simple sandals and your favorite crossbody and of course add a pretty wedge sandal for the evening.

HOW BOLD ARE YOU

We Go Big We Go Bold

Last year Chico's reached out to me for a little social media love and since then it's been an exciting experience filled with love. In February, Chico's invited a group of influencers to NYC to meet and chat about being a woman, being bold and what that means. We celebrated how it's not about growing old, it's about growing bold and really enjoying this journey of living our life without rules that have been placed upon us. These meetings have led to beautiful relationships and lots of fun! Not only is the Chico's team of women wonderful, smart and supportive, they're open and ready to blow the doors open to Living Your Best Life. It's not all about clothes, it's the message. Below are a few fun photos of their Spring Launch, How Bold Are You Campaign at Joe's Pub along with speeches from influential women including Former Editor in Chief of More Magazine, Lesley Jane Seymour and award winning actress, Tracee Ellis Ross and a special performance by actress and singer, Molly Ringwald. 

931125642.jpg

Tracee Ellis Ross - Breaking down another societal taboo, Chico’s emboldens women to embrace their age by sharing how bold they are. Chico’s discovered that most of the women interviewed don’t feel middle-aged at all nor do they define themselves by their age. They enjoy expressing themselves through fashion and living life on their terms. Check out the video.
