Washington, May 26 (ANI): A new website lets men and women upload pictures of themselves and get anonymous advice from other users on the site if they should wear the dress or trash it.
GoTryItOn.com has become a rage on the Web - offering something no other website can - an honest opinion about how that dress or that tie looks on you.
Varshisky, a 26-year-old New Yorker, took a couple of pictures of possible first-day ensembles-a sleeveless blue dress and a cap-sleeve black dress-and uploaded them to GoTryItOn.com.
By the time she finished her hair and makeup, she said the crowd had issued its verdict: the little blue dress had won out.
"I live alone, so it's great for me when I am getting ready alone and need advice," CBS News quoted her as saying.
"I felt more confident with the decision I was making before heading to the office."
Marissa Evans, 26, the site's founder and CEO, said the idea came from years of getting ready to go out with girlfriends and her sister.
Everyone always wants to know which outfit looks better, she said. "My response was always, 'Go try it on."
With a four-person team and a site, which has attracted about 3,500 active users - gotryiton.com is slated to only grow in popularity.ot only do the visitors sign on from as far away as Brazil, Russia and the U.K., she said 20 percent of the site's users are male.
"Women seem to mostly use it for a night out," she said. "And the men use it for dates and weddings. They like the opinions when there's a big, formal event. Women like them all the time."
Visitors who want to give an opinion can vote for ("wear it") or against ("change it") the outfit, or leave a written review.
Although the comments tend to be mostly helpful and encouraging, to make sure that inappropriate and harsh comments don't alter the tone of the site, she said a team monitors reviews and removes those that cross the line.
"The content on the site is something we hold very dearly to us," said Evans. "I've been very focused around keeping the comments high-quality." (ANI)
