Shop Instagram with LiketoKnow.it

YScreen Shot 2014-10-20 at 10.44.04 PMou guys know I like to do round-ups of workout clothes for Fashion Fridays, and I've shared a little about my own wardrobe woes, wanting to dress better, both in and out of the gym. Well, I recently discovered a cool app that makes shopping a breeze and, I can do it through one of my favorite and frequently used apps, Instagram!

When you sign-up with Liketoknow.it you get the scoop on where to buy items pictured in a post shared by a Liketoknow.it participant!

For example, I could post a photo of my purse, tag Kate Spade, and, if I'm signed up with Liketoknow.it, give you instant access to shop that same purse with just a click of a button! Pretty neat, huh?

You can log into your account on Liketoknow.it to shop all Liketoknow photos, but they've gone a step further and made shopping Instagram even easier by sending you an email with direct links to the items in any Liketoknow.it image you've liked on Instagram that day!

I follow some pretty fashionable ladies on IG and I'm excited to have direct access to their wardrobes, and the items I often look at with envy! I love that there's some budget savvy fashionistas out there, too!

Here are a few of my favorite Liketoknow.it instagrammers:

I love how Instagram is becoming like a mini blog world, with mini posts from 'bloggers' or frequent posters; there's photo styling and a lot of personality and now, it's even involving big brands-- it's a whole new wave of digital marketing! It's kind of amazing how fast and furious the digital world is, huh?

I think anyone can use Liketoknow.it whether you're posting to Instagram or shopping Instagram. I'd probably need to be a little more fashionable to start directing people to shop my posts, but nonetheless, I think this is a pretty neat idea, especially for fashion bloggers.

Have you heard of Liktoknow.it?

Fashion Friday + We Got a New Look!

Hey guys! Notice anything different? It'd be impossible not to! Fit for a Bride got a makeover! Yay! We have a slider now - highlighting popular posts - and I especially love the excerpt layout. Now, rather than scrolling through page after page of the blog, you can easily see all our content, and choose (by clicking an excerpt) what you want to read! Before, I felt like each new post was burying the last, and if you were new to the blog, it'd be impossible to see all that it had to offer - all our recipes and weight loss stories. But not anymore! There's still quite a few kinks that need to be ironed out, so please bear with me. I still need to add featured images to each excerpt and format the various pages (those of have changed too! Now you'll see categories such as weight loss, recipes, fashion/beauty, etc., on the menu bar). I also need to get my sidebar in order!

Speaking of sidebar, you've probably noticed I no longer have an ad on the site. I went back and forth about it whether to keep it or reformat the blog - I had to chose between the two, but ultimately, I realized my reader's experience was far more important than a few dollars a month (I wasn't making that much with the ad anyway). I'll touch on this a little later as more changes come, but for now, I'm pretty excited about our facelift! I'd love to hear what you think.

Now onto our regular scheduled programming - Fashion Friday! Here's a new pink + purple ensemble I put together to for leg day! Though, with crossfit, it feels like everyday is leg day! The squats have felt endless lately, which inspired this outfit:

Workout-Pink

Tank / Pants / Shoes / Headband

I think for $115 this outfit is a total steal, especially considering it includes a fresh pair of Nikes!

What do you think? Is $115 too much to spend on workout clothes? Even with shoes included?

What do you think of the new layout? Love it? Hate it? Share your thoughts!

Oh, and happy FRIDAY!! By Monday things should be organized around here so don't be a stranger! In the meantime, have a great a weekend!

Fashion Friday: Dance Party Clothes

Hey all! Happy Friday!!

How was your week? Did you do any arms exercises? I've been trying to do a little something everyday and I think it's working! We'll see at the end of the month if there's a noticeable difference.

I wanted to post a dance party splurge outfit today because I've been really pumped and motivated by music lately! I love how they turn it up really loud during crossfit, and there's a few songs I'm utterly obsessed with at the moment ("I love it," by Icona Pop) [I may or may not have just stopped writing this post to have a dance party around my apartment]!

I'm a stickler for pop music and I like a little hip hop and rap, too! My husband says it's cause I'm a club chick! Or at least used to be :) Lol!

Nowadays, I hardly ever go to the club, but I wouldn't mind jammin' out in these blue ombre pants at a gym somewhere...

Dance-Party 1. Hard Tail Shirred Knee Length Legging $77

2. Beats by Dre $280

3. Surf Stitch Amazing Tank $34

4. Nike Musique IV Dance Shoe $60

This is a definite splurge with the beats by Dre costing close to $300!! Would you spend that much on headphones?

What song makes you break out into a dance party? 

Happy weekend!

Shop: Fit for a Bride Apparel (Coming Soon)

Morning loves! Happy Friday!

This week, I have something a little different for our "fashion Fridays."

Check out these apparel mock-ups I created for the soon-to-be Fit for a Bride shop! Eek!

FFAB-Tops

FFAB-Tank-1FFAB-Tank  FFAB-T-Shirt

When I started this blog I knew that eventually there would be at least three parts to the FFAB brand: blog, shop, and bootcamp. Of course, these things take time and I'm not a hurry, but it's really fun to brainstorm and play in Photoshop ways to make these dreams a reality! Of course, I'm dying to know what you think and if this is something you'd buy! Please leave a comment and let me know which of these is your favorite and what other pieces you'd like to see offered!

Bootcamp T-ShirtWhat kind of apparel would you like to see sold? 

Are there any phrases you'd like to see on tanks and tees from Fit for a Bride?

I can't wait to hear what you guys think!!

Fashion Friday: Black & Rose {Splurge}

Happy Friday fit brides! I've got a workout *splurge* for today, but if you break it down it can also be considered a *save!* This cute tank from oGorgeous is only $10! I think several sizes are sold out, but Large is still available! Also, while $45 may seem like a lot for a gym bag, I had this bag in pink and used it for (wait for it) like 3 years! Hubs got it in blue and is still using his! Sometimes a little extra buck is worth it! Workout-Clothes-Splure-I-Love-Working-Out

I Love Working Out Tank $10 / Compression Shorts $15 / Aerie Sports Bra $20 / Nike Duffle $45

I'm not sure whether you noticed, but this week was a little all over the place posting/schedule-wise. I haven't had much time in the evenings prepare posts because we've been searching for an apartment! We're actually moving mid-April and while I'm very excited to have a new space to decorate (and a Fit for a Bride studio 2.o!), it's been tough finding the right property! We saw a really nice place last night and we're submitting the necessary paperwork to secure it today, so, please keep your fingers crossed for us! (Total bonus: it's within walking distance of Target! Eek!)

Later today, I am finally sharing Part Three of my Blogging Series :: FINDING AN IDENTITY :: Check back later this afternoon for the inside scoop on how I got my fab logo (centered as the header above) and this unique blog design!

Yay- Friday!

Fashion Friday: Fushia & Baby Blue Stripes {Save}

It's FRRRRRRIDAY!!! As promised I have a "SAVE" outfit for you guys this week! We're all on a budget, right? It's hard for me to justify spending a lot on workout clothes, but, new gear almost always provides instant motivation! How about a mini-splurge? A whole new outfit for less than $50!

This top is from Old Navy and the capris are from Forever 21! Both stores are great go-tos for inexpensive workout clothes!

Let me know what you think!

Happy weekend loves! I'm trying my hand at another feature: Fashion Friday! Nothing motivates me than a new outfit! I'm going to start featuring "splurge" and "save" combos! This is a definite splurge (the tank is $35!), but every once and awhile, we deserve a little something expensive for our hard work, right! What do you think? Workout-Outfit
