One benefit of having a fashion blogger who is also a tech geek and tech blogger is more topics!  I just wrote a post over at The Next Web titled: 20 Fashion Apps for the iPhone. Of course, you can check it out there (in fact, please check it out there too.)

Here I get to sort through that list with more of a fine-toothed comb. For you lovelies, I’ve ranked them by iTunes ranking and have thrown in five more I think look good.

Here you go!

The Top 15 from the piece I wrote, including the ones that weren’t on The Independent’s list.  I’ve included only ranked apps and a couple that I think will rank soon:

  1. myFendi: An experience lying between fantasy and reality that gives space to creativity and stimulates desire.  Cost: free. Ranking: 3 1/2 stars.
  2. Bra-Fitter: You may know your size.  You may be mistaken. Can you afford to take the risk? Cost: $1.99. Ranking: 3 stars.

My hand-picked Top 5:
