Let’s face it ya’ll… we are, in fact, kids of a digitized nation. You can shop online, you can date online, you can even artiste (pronounced arteest) your own wedding collage on Pinterest online. Not that I would do anything like that, pfft! Obviously. The point is that as much as I like to stay old school with my chunky pre-HD T.V. set and vintage tea cup collection, oh the times they are a changing and if you are a fashionista – this can mean a plethora of pretty platforms to play with!
Here are some of the coolest shoe & fashion apps that I could find on the interweb:
Shoe Addicts is a beautiful photo sharing app which connects those who love and wear shoes and want to discuss trends with other Shoe Mates or give and receive advice for purchase.
Red Sole Fans Rejoice - the definitive guide for Louboutin lovers worldwide has arrived.

Shoe Doodle is the app for everyone who knows you can never have enough shoes!
Do you need a leopard-skinned sneaker with a stiletto heel? Done! How about a black pump with red racing stripes? Done! High tops with rhinestones and a pinwheel? Yep! The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
Start with one of three shoe styles - sneakers, high tops or pumps (both low and high heeled). Next, choose from a variety of sole, toe, heel and side designs. Once you've constructed your shoe, choose your favorite colours from a collection of paints and patterns. Complete your shoe by jazzing it up with rhinestones, appliqués and decorations.
Design the perfect shoe with Shoe Doodle!
