While the secret is out, the official post announcing our Like To Know It was delayed for a few reasons: First, it took us a while to figure out and then become comfortable with the all of the backend technical details. Once we did, COVID 19 hit and we had to think long and hard about whether such an announcement it was still appropriate. Now, however many days we are into this virus and social distancing, the trend on social media seems to suggest that people want to carry on as normal in the virtual world. We know we enjoy watching our favorite people on blogs, Instagram, and YouTube. Lastly, we ourselves are online browsing and shopping as a form of escape, and as evidenced by our recent explosion in ThredUp sales, y’all are too. We hope this announcement makes you feel inspired to think of outfits and excited to one day have a reason to get dressed again – although, we will be tailoring a lot of our LTKI posts, as well as blog content to the current stay at home sitch #quarantinelife     

What is Like To Know It
This post is for those of you who may not be familiar with Like To Know It (if you are familiar with it and just want to follow us, please click here or at www.liketoknow.it/afashionatinglife). This is a tool that easily allows you to directly shop our Instagram posts. 

First, if you do not already have a LTKI account, you need to sign up. You will also need to download the Like To Know It app in your phone’s app store. That is about it. You will receive an email with the purchasing details of any of the LTKI enabled images that you like in our Instagram feed or on our Like To Know It page. These images are easy to identify as they have either a LTKI hashtag or watermark in the bottom right had corner of the image, either black or white.


However, there is an easier way. Once you have downloaded the app and registered with Like To Know It, all you have to do is screenshot the images. The app will alert you as soon as the links to the items are available in your app. It usually only takes a couple of minutes.  


Lastly, we have enabled the Like to Know It widgets here on the blog to make it even easier for you to shop our looks. And while we do get a commission on every purchase you make through our Like To Know It links, we will always include budget friendly options on every post we can. We have also been able to include plus size options on many of our looks, and we will continue to do so as often as we are able. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can help you find, please send an email to ellen@afashionatinglife.com. Happy shopping!
