Happy New Year Shopcade

Note from Shopcader Nathalie Gaveau

Shopcade CEO and Co-Founder

Hello Shopcaders,

Let me start by sending you lots of virtual hugs for your amazing love and support in 2013.

In 2011, we built Shopcade for today’s busy young fashionistas so there’s a single place to keep up with the best trends and deals from reliable sources such as today’s top magazines, celebrities, bloggers, brands and fellow fashion-savvy geniuses out there.

And in 2013, we launched our new mobile apps on IOS7 and Android and grew to a community of over half a million fashionistas and 30,000 brands, making Shopcade one of the biggest places to shop fashion and broke new sales records every week. We also built widgets for bloggers to showcase their favourite products to their fans.

But that’s not all. After your holiday cheerios, here’s what we will cuddle you with in 2014:

More Fashion Trends

We’re partnering with even more magazines, bloggers and celebrities and expanding our team of fashion correspondents in the US and the UK, who will spot the latest trends and styles on your behalf. You can expect to hear about the latest “fashion goss”, keep up with the “ones to watch” and show off with our “get the look” and more, daily.

More Social

We want to make our stylish Shopcaders famous. That’s why we will allow Shopcaders to add photos and videos to express their style, and crown the most stylish ones with the “Miss & Mr Shopcade” prizes – winning stylish treats and being featured to the whole community.

More Deals

Part of being the best place to shop is to help you save money. We will feature even more fashionable deals from our partners, including exclusive offers from todays’ most fashionable brands and emerging designers.

More Mobile

We will optimize the mobile apps to be simpler and even more personalized based on your location and interests. If our mobile app is the word “window” in “window-shopping”, we will polish it like gold.

See you in 2014!

Nathalie

PS: we are always on the look out for bright and fashionable young minds, whether it be bloggers, curators, ambassadors or fashion-addict trendsetters, so don’t hesitate to contact us!

shopcade-deals

Deals Filter

You can sort the Deals page by our cool filtering system. Just click ‘see all’ or on a category of interest and use our left hand-side bar filters for a more specific search. You can select if you’d like to see exclusive deals only, last chance deals, price drops or even just vouchers. You can also narrow your search down by price range or brand.

You can also access all of the Deals on products you ‘wanted’ not only within the Deals page but also through an automatic list created in your Shopcade.

Don’t have time to check our deals page everyday?

Fear not, if you ‘wanted’ a product a long time ago but never bought it because it was slightly over your budget, Shopcade will notify you via email if that same product goes on sale. We want to ensure you don’t miss out! Make sure you subscribe to these notifications through your Account settings.

 

The A.B.C of Shopcade Deals

  • Unlock voucher codes by clicking on ‘Get Code’ button within the product tile. It will automatically open the retailer site on another window and your code will be revealed on Shopcade.
  • Unlock exclusive deals on Shopcade simply by sharing the item with friends. You can unlock deals with Twitter and Email, as well as with Facebook.
  • Exclusive deals can be either a special deal offered exclusively to you by our retail partners, a minimum of £10 or 10% cash-back or a combination of both! So you can SAVE money on your item which you would not usually get when shopping the product online.
  • Not all deals have to be unlocked or have a voucher code. Once you find a good deal, simply click on ‘Shop’ and you’ll be taken to the retailer site where the deal will be reflected (generally discounts or price drops)
  • Sometimes there may be more than one Deal on a product so watch out for these for an almighty discount! Up to you to choose which one suits you best.

Deals are everywhere on Shopcade, so happy saving! And if you know of a great deal we’ve missed out on, tell us and share with other Shopcaders!

Step into Spring with shoes by Stuart Weitzman

on

Put a little spring in your step with some fabulous looks from Stuart Weitzman.

This month Shopcade has partnered with the brand to offer a chance to win a $200 gift card to get your feet moving in some of the hottest looks.

American designer Stuart Weitzman has been rocking the walkways and runways since he started designing shoes in the 1960’s. Now his designs are world renowned and worn by some of the most fabulous people including brand spokesmodel Kate Moss and Beyonce on her “Mrs. Carter” world tour this summer.

Though Weitzman’s shoes are worn by some of the biggest supermodels and celebrities you don’t have to be one to wear one of his spring looks. All it takes is a desire for style!
             natural-selection-collage   

 

For Spring and Summer 2013 Weitzman has designed a line of shoes to bring you back to nature. The looks feature some classic shapes like oxfords, thong sandals, wedges, and chunky heels made of materials straight from the earth.

The twine, cork, and wood looks are easy to wear all season. The twine oxfords would look great paired with some cuffed skinny jeans or slouchy jean crops! The lightness of the woven twine looks great with pale colors or white and easy fabrics with a lot of movement like sundresses.

The natural sandals are super versatile and would be a great replacement for pairs made of thick plastic or leather.

natural-with-outfit

 Stuart Weitzman’s natural collection shoes “Reins” and “Stringapart” pictured with outfits from Donna Ricco and Alice + Olivia[/caption]

The natural line looks great with an easy style: jeans, casual dresses and other everyday wear. Wear these when you are out running errands in the sunshine or playing horseshoes at a summer BBQ.

heavy-metals-collage

For the Spring and Summer season Weitzman has also launched a line of deliciously dazzling metallic looks. Whether you choose a classic gold or silver strappy look or a sandal in a pop of color a little shine goes a long way.

Metallic looks are more versatile than many think with golds, silvers, pewters, bronzes, and brass tones going with just about everything; like jewelry.

metallic
 Weitzman looks “Metalmania” and “Pantheon” would go great with looks like this coral dress by Nanette Lepore and this white shirt-dress by Halston Heritage.[/caption]

A metallic sandal looks great paired casually with jeans or a beachy maxi dress but can also be worn when you hit the town or attend an event.

Think of a metallic sandal as jewelry. A silver sandal is like a silver necklace – it can complement any color, fabric, or print without having to match it. Metallic shoes are great for those outfits that you can never find shoes for like navy and white. An investment your wardrobe will thank you for!

classic-contrast-collage1Black and white will take you from day to night!

The classic contrast of black and white is one of the springs hottest trends in sportswear, resort wear, and footwear. A great black and white shoe is classic yet unique on its own and can complement a work look just as well as a funky party dress.

Weitzman’s black and white menswear inspired loafers are a great casual look with cuffed ankle jeans or some bright crops!

black-and-white
Wear black and white to work or out running errands with the “Sweepstakes” pump paired with an Alice + Olivia dress and “Guything” loafers with skinnies and a casual crew sweatshirt from T by Alexander Wang.[/caption]

The collection of heels are great transitional pieces that can get take you right from the office to the party. These looks are timeless and will always be in style. These pieces are classic, not vampy!

So get to it and start shopping! The deals are waiting for you!
