VOILA: Here's how you can recreate my vintage looks with modern pieces

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

Chic. Simple. Smart. Stylish. Four adjectives I'd use to describe my style -- and the catch phrase of Voila, the app for fashion lovers and influencers looking to recreate their favorite styles.

While I am not a fan of copying trends and posting links to buy my exact look, I am a fan of sharing my styled looks to inspire readers and followers. And Voila allows me to do just that. I recognize that not all of my followers are avid vintage, thrift, or secondhand shoppers. I want my looks to inspire, but I also want you to be able to easily recreate them for yourself.

Solution: With Voila, I can link modern pieces, from your favorite brands, that can be used to recreate looks styled with vintage pieces.

Here's how it works for Voila users:

  1. Sign up/log in. It's free!

  2. Decide whether you're looking to shop, discover, or post a look.

  3. If you're looking to shop, browse the app's Shop home page.

  4. If you're looking to be inspired, browse the app's Discovery page.

  5. If you're posting a look, head to the apps's MyPosts page to upload and link.

Here's how it works for influencers:

  1. Upload a look that inspired you OR share a look you think will inspire others.

  2. Voila uses artificial intelligence (AI) to suggest pieces similar to those in the photo.

  3. Scroll through AI-suggested pieces, adding pieces inspired by the look you're posting.

  4. Followers and other Voila users shop the pieces you've linked. Discounts are shown on the app.

  5. You get rebate for every item purchased! Each piece suggested by Voila's AI comes with a % cash back.

Uploading a Look:

Uploading a look to share with other users is easy. You can upload from your camera roll, Instagram, OR snap a photo on the street. With its AI technology, Voila is unique in that it can give you suggested pieces and doesn't rely on users knowing a specific brand, style, or retailer.

Here, I'm uploading a picture from a previous photo shoot. I get so many comments on this vintage beaded shirt, therefore, this look is perfect look to show you the power of Voila!

Step 1: AI Suggestion for Similar Tops and Bottoms

Step 2: Selecting similar tops and bottoms to link

Step 3: Publish your look.

Here's the final upload with my suggestions for tops, bottoms. You can click on each image to see the expanded selection of suggested pieces!

My favorite features of the Voila app:

  • The app is for all fashion lovers, not just influencers. The app is multi-feature, and you can shop curated lists/major discounts in the app without having to upload a look!

  • If you are sharing your can link your Instagram page so uploading is a breeze.

  • Voila's Visual Search & AI allows you to get suggestions from a picture you snapped on the street! Love that lady's jacket? Shoes? Bag? Snap a pic!

  • When you search for an item, suggested pieces reflect a variety of price ranges. This is great for styling looks on a budget.

  • With these various suggestions, users can purchase pieces from the store/retailer of their choice.

  • There's a 'Wishlist' feature so can save all the pieces you're loving. It's never too soon to start planning for holidays and birthdays...
