Adding A Photo

You should be the center of attention in the photo. The photo is about YOU, not the background.
Make sure that the products that you list in the style are clearly shown in the photos.
Depending on the selected category, the main image displayed in the style should follow the below guidelines:
For the Fashion category, the main image must display a head-to-toe look.
For Shoes, Handbags, Jewelry categories, the main image must contain a close up shot of you wearing the product.
For Beauty categories, the main image must be a close up of the relevant body part - example, a style posted in Eye Makeup should have a close up of the eye makeup as the main image.
(You can see the images displayed in the site as examples of approved styles.)
You may upload 1-3 photos for each style. The additional photos must be different poses or angles of the same style.
The maximum file size that you can upload (for each photo) is 1 MB .
The minimum permissible image dimensions are:
Fashion category, Eye Makeup category - 400px x 800px
All other categories - 400px x 600px

We strictly disallow posting someone else's photo. You, or some part of you (in case of a closeup shot), must be in the photo.
Can I post photos of only my items?
We disallow posting photos containing only items. You, or some part of you, wearing the product must be in the photo.
Adding Style Details
Why should I add Search filters and Search tags to my style?
Adding accurate and relevant search filters and search tags improves the discoverability of your style. It helps others users find your style when they are searching or filtering for styles that match their preferences. Your selected search tags and filters also appear as search suggestions when users type keywords in the search box.
Which keywords should I provide as Search Tags?
Use keywords that are specific to your style and likely to be used as search words by other users. Search tags should not be same as search filters selected by you (it is redundant).
Can I provide a web link in the style's description field?
Links are not permitted in the description field. Any links mentioned in the description would be removed by us before displaying the style.
Which products should I provide for my style?
Products are items displayed in the style - it could be a clothing item, shoe, purse, bag, makeup item etc. Mentioning at least one product is mandatory.

What should I do if I do not have the store link to the product shown in the style?
Select "Link to Exact Product" if the store link is for exactly the same product that is shown in the style. If you do not have the store link to the product shown in the style, select "Link to Similar Product" and provide a store link for a product that looks similar to the product shown in the style.
Why should I add products and store links?
We want others to not only admire your style, we want them to buy it too… with your help!
Also, remember that being helpful helps you too - everyone appreciates information, and it allows you to engage more with other users and to potentially get more followers.

Whacky (& out of the craziness of our heart)
Disclaimer: We are just having fun, no offense intended :)
Wow, this site does a lot. Can you make coffee for me too?
Sure! But you have to visit us (with a big gift and nice smile!).
Why didn't I find this site sooner?
It makes us sad too :(
Why are there so few words on this site?
We believe in "show more, say less".
Why cats?
Cats have so many traits that we want our site to exhibit - graceful, stylish, adorable, playful, mysterious, unpredictable, spontaneous, curious & more. So why not? :)
Didn't curiosity kill your cat?
Alive & kickin'! But then, cats have nine lives… so was it reborn? Hmm
Why is this site so good-looking?
Let's face it - the internet is ugly-looking! Most sites, including your favorite ones, sacrifice their looks at the altar of functionality. But why should beauty and function be an either-or choice? Would you rather display your photo in your living room's showcase or on the broom closet door? If a nice backdrop makes you feel good in real-life, then why it should be any different on the internet?
Vogueista aspires to harmonize beauty and function! We display your photos and content prominently and elegantly without compromising on a great user experience. It's time for the internet to get a makeover. It's time to bring down the ugly, and say "Hello beautiful"!
Is that all you got?
But wait, there's more! Ok, sadly there isn't (for now!) but we always wanted to say that line.
We will be bringing out more exciting features soon, and there are always new styles getting posted, so keep visiting!
