Did you love something you saw on Instagram? Here’s how to shop it

Instagram has quickly become a favorite social media outlet. (In fact, if you aren’t following me yet, you should click right over and follow me there.)

Go ahead.

I can wait.

how to shop the instagram images you love so much

Okay, now that we’ve fixed that little glitch, let’s talk about how Instagram can work for you. Once, long, long ago, Instagram was only about sharing moments in the instant. And a lot of us want it to stay that way.

I’m sorry.

It didn’t. It can’t. Not really. Like most popular social media things in the world, it’s become about marketing. But that’s not necessarily bad for you. It may even help you.

I mean, how many times have you seen a picture on Instagram and gushed and drooled and said “wow. I would really love that (insert noun here) in my (select one: closet, family room, car, life).”

Every day, right?

And if you loved loved loved it, you might have even commented “I love that! Where can I get it?!”

And, if you’re lucky, the instagrammer actually paid attention and responded to you. But. Sigh. Links don’t work on Instagram so now you’re copying a zillion letters, numbers, slashes and periods onto a paper or, worse, your notepad on your phone, in hopes you can later transcribe the exact URL sequence into your browser’s address bar.

Guess what? Instagram can be easier.

??I kept it!!! ?? After being stopped by the Jewelry Counter lady at Nordstrom and asked about this necklace — “can’t believe we don’t sell that here! It’s gorgeous. I need it!” — I knew I wasn’t sending this one and all its beauty back to Rocksbox. I was antsy for a new set to borrow, but hadn’t had it in me to return the 3 pieces I received that week because I wanted to wear this necklace with All. The. Outfits. It’s MINE BABY.
