What’s on your Lyst?

LystNope, that wasn’t a typo! I really did mean to write Lyst, it’s a great new shopping site that I have found which I just know will be a hit amongst the fashion conscious out there. Can you imagine walking into the biggest fashion store you have ever seen and saying, show me everything you have by Prada, Michael Kors, French Connection, Diane von Furstenburg and Vivienne Westwood but only in red, blue, black and size 10 (yeah I wish!!!). It would take the assistants hours to fit all of your criteria but with Lyst, it’s there before your very eyes in just a few clicks.


Lyst is fashion tech company based in London and New York, their website is a shopping experience which is unique to every user. The more your use the platform, the more it learns about your and your shopping habits so you start to only see thinks you love! If you see something which takes your eye but you’re not quite ready to make that final decision, fear not you can just add it to your Lyst or Lysts, depending on how you want to save your likes. There are four Lyst set as default; Gift Lyst, Party Planning, Wish Lyst Wardrobe and Gifts for Me. You can also have your Lysts set to alert you when items go on sale or come back into stock.


Registering your account takes just a few minutes and once done you will be shown a series of Designers/Retailers which you tick or cross to say whether you like them or not. This will then help Lyst to only show you the items that you will like to refine your experience to suit you. You can come back and add to or reduce this list at any point by looking at the brands you are following.


I have my 40th Birthday celebrations coming up in May, I know, I don’t look a day over 45!! I’m not entirely sure of exactly what I’m going to be doing yet but I’m hoping that at least somewhere along the way I will get the chance to dress up in a pretty dress so I’ve been looking at the dresses to see what takes my fancy. I think this is my favourite dress and would get the most wear going forward.


It’s so easy to narrow your choices down (if you’re in a hurry, otherwise just keep on browsing). By selecting from the categories on the side you can look for formal dresses, casual dresses, cocktail or even maxi dresses. If money is no object then you can leave the sliding scale alone or you can drop it a little and save some pennies for shoes to match. Fed up of finding that perfect dress only to be told that it’s not available in your size? Fear not, with Lyst you can search by your size so you’ll only see the items that were made for you!!


I have selected the dresses that I like the most at the moment and added them to my Lysts so that I can come back to my choices again once I have had time to mull them over and I can be notified if similar items have been added or if they have been added to Special Offers.


I am rubbish at making decisions on clothing and so I generally need the help and advice of my Mum or Husband because they know my style the best and will advise me as to which one will suit me the best.


Being able to see all of the items that you have liked in one place can be really helpful in the decision making process and if you have so many that you still can’t narrow down your choices you can always filter your Lyst via the options down the left hand side of the screen.Β I can’t currently see that it is possible but I think it would be really useful to have the facility to share your Lysts. What do you think?


Sometimes when shopping we just want to browse and don’t really know what it is exactly that we are looking for so If you’re not entirely sure what it is exactly that you’re looking for and in those times there are Lysts created by the Lyst editors to inspire you.

LystHave you tried Lyst yet? I would love to know what you think to it? How do you use it in your quest for ultimate style?

    I adore that Jolie Moi dress with the lace detailing, I can’t believe it’s on sale for just Β£45… So tempted to snap it up before it goes

      It’s beautiful isn’t it. If you do, we had better check with each other before wearing it to any blogging events πŸ˜‰

    I’ve not tried Lyst yet but I like that you can tick to look at only things in stock. It drives me mad when you find something you love on a website only to find that there is no stock available… What’s the point in showing it to me then?!! This avoids that situation.

    • March 29, 2016 / 8:45 pm

      That is just the most annoying thing isn’t it, I always use that facility to look for things now, saves me getting my hopes up needlessly!!

    If only they did plus sized. No in all seriousness there is some lovely stuff, just not in my sizes

      Oh no, that’s a real shame. I think the idea of the site is great but obviously they won’t have something for everyone πŸ™

    What a great idea, I hate trawling through shopping pages only to find the item I wanted doesn’t come in my size. I often wish for the opportunity to detail my search to what I want. And it’s cool that you can keep a wardrobe of all your wishlist items.

      I really like the wardrobe facility, it’s a great for placing things that you can’t make your mind up on and can return to at a later date.

    A great idea and I am loving some of the dresses, I will have to take a look, perfect for busy mums!

      I’m going through a real ‘dress’ phase at the moment, I think I have spent so long in jeans I’m craving my girly side now πŸ™‚

    Wow I love the look of this site! Especially like the feature that notifies you when something goes on sale! πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing.

    • March 29, 2016 / 8:41 pm

      Yes, it’s a great way to tell yourself that if you’re ‘meant’ to have it, you’ll be told πŸ™‚

    I love that you can check so many retailers on Lyst. I’m sure this would cut down time spent scrolling individual stores online. Thanks for sharing.

    • March 30, 2016 / 9:42 pm

      That’s one thing that I really like about it too. We always need good time-savers πŸ™‚

    I forgot about Lyst, I adore that navy dress with the white detailing, off to check the price

    • March 31, 2016 / 4:31 pm

      Hahaha you might have to be quick, I seem to have drawn attention to that Navy dress – all the bloggers will be wearing it πŸ˜‰

    I really like the idea of this – it’s like a free personal shopper πŸ˜‰

    Some of the dresses you’ve shared are so pretty x

      Yes! That’s the perfect description πŸ™‚
