Andy Wolf Sunglasses can be the exclamation point to your whole entire outfit. For some, one’s signature look is not complete without it.

For many in some way, having the right pair of shades is a way of life.

PopSugar Inc. wants to build a universal shopping cart for fashion-related mobile commerce. This isn’t news if you’re already familiar with using their specialized search engine for women’s apparel and accessories called ShopStyle. ShopStyle, which PopSugar Inc. acquired in 2007, was responsible for driving $1 billion in revenue to its retail partners last year, according to Brian Sugar, PopSugar Inc.’s founder and chief executive.
Already having being launched in April, ShopStyle won’t just redirect shoppers to complete purchases on retailers’ sites. Instead, ShopStyle aims to “tailor” the user taste profile by indicating pictorial brand references of what best identifies with the consumer. Then they enter their credit card information, and make purchases from dozens of retailers directly through the ShopStyle site and app.
The new Project September app is not a new concept when it comes to the brilliancy of how shopping apps are coming out in where photo-driven technology can help you nab your latest fashion obessions. Alexis Maybank, co-founder of Gilt Groupe (recently acquired by the owner of Saks Fifth Avenue), is jumping on the startup train in the world of fashion and shopping.
Just like most apps that provide a photo-driven shopping service, Project September aims to pull the guess work of what label and where did she buy it. The biggest difference with the app is that those items will be marked by green dots in which you’ll get more info — allowing you to buy it directly from the brand’s website.

The digital market hit a peak of $4.9 trillion last year, and is projected to grow to more than an astounding $8 trillion by 2020. According to a report from Juniper Research, 2015’s digital commerce market hit $4.9 trillion. The study said that last year’s total in transaction values came from three major commerce segments — digital banking, remote digital goods and remote physical goods — was more than Juniper’s estimate of the GDP of Japan in 2014, or $4.6 trillion. Lauren Foye, the report’s author, said, “The digital commerce market as a whole is seeing an ever-increasing trend toward an multi-channel approach, and this extends to e-commerce, where the mobile and tablet platform is seeing increased use towards the purchasing of physical goods, either for delivery or collection.” Things like online calendar retail events are credited with boosting the online commerce platforms.
Online events such as Cyber Monday and China’s “Singles’ Day,” gave online marketplace Alibaba $14.3 billion in goods sold. The report also said that transaction volumes are seeing a boost as more companies transition to digital formats and programs like subscription services gain popularity. The retail component of digital commerce includes coupons, vouchers and loyalty programs, as well as various points of sale, including transactions that use near field communication chips on a smartphone. Financial apps on the App store and Google Play were among the most downloaded financial apps in the U.S. and the U.K. As for digital and physical goods, the white paper concluded that while both tablets and smartphones are “heavily used for browsing, consumers are far more likely to make their purchases on tablets.”
