Forget Standing In Line - Sit And Shop At Modista.com
December 22, 2008
Why: The way I see it, there are two kinds of online shoppers out there. The wizards of words somehow know the exact combination of nouns and adjectives to feed into Google to pinpoint that perfect pair of patent leather pumps. The rest are visual shoppers, the kind of people who have no clue what they want until they see it.
For you people who shop with your peepers, Modista.com is a visual search engine that serves up a whole slew of neatly ordered pictures and lets you narrow down as you see things you like. Refine your search by color, size, brand, price, and even discount percentage (who knew you could be so demanding without lifting a typing finger?).
Modista even takes things a type-free step further by listing the web's best deals in a sidebar. Maybe you didn't even know you wanted UGG boots until you saw that they were up to 50 percent off at 6pm.com; click on the deal button and get a grid made up of only the bargain boots.
Feel like you're spending too much time on Modista? Click over to Like.com, another visual search site, and split your surfing time between the two.
