House Account - Must Have App

Some of my favorite shops are miles away. In some case, thousands of miles away. But, I've just discovered an amazing way to stay in touch and aware of when they receive new shipments.

House Account, developed by Laura Vinroot Poole, owner of the high end women's boutique, Capitol & it's more casual little sister, Poole Shop and her childhood friend, Travis Parsons, is my new favorite app.
It's like a souped up Instagram. You select from a growing number of boutiques (currently 350) and then get a feed with their updates. See something you like? Send a message to the shop and they'll respond. That's where the personal touch comes in.

The app goes beyond fashion....for example, there are 8 Mecox shops (East Hampton, Southhampton, etc...), paper goods shops, linen shops and art galleries. This is such a great way for small shops to increase their reach and for customers to gain access to some of the country's best boutiques.

Here are some of the shops I'm following: Cabana, Canary, 4510, Isabella, Capitol, Poole Shop, Mecox, Fivestory.

Only the best clients have a house account. Now, you can have one, too! Happy shopping!

Love the name but maybe they need to change it to "DANGEROUS" because that is what it would be for me. Tempting.

I'm with Patricia, DANGEROUS seems to be an apt name for this app! Super, super smart and cool. I'm on a hunt for the perfect dress to wear to a black tie bday bash next month and haven't found anything I love on the big store websites. Maybe this app would is just what I need. Thanks for the tip, Elizabeth. Hope you are having a lovely week! XOXO

This IS dangerous and all I need to make shopping even easier;) What a great idea and I like the idea of helping out the smaller boutiques. I've seen many go out of business because they are off the beaten path and it's just easier for people to go to a large department store because there are so many options. This is so fun and I like how personal it is! Thanks for sharing Elizabeth:) xxL
