Our followers may remember PopSugar Fashion’s recent article titled ‘I Cleaned Out 100+ Items From My Closet by Asking This 1 Question’ which we shared on all our social media accounts last week. The article gives great tips on editing your wardrobe. We immediately taught how much Pureple would help to implement the tips in this article. Here is the top 5:
If Pureple was of help while cleaning your closet, how did it help? What would be one feature we could add to make it even more useful?

“… 5) Use a virtual closet app to get out of a styling rut. I use a FREE app called Pureple. I upload the photos from this post into the app. Then I can mix/match looks & save outfits for later. You can also ‘suggest outfit’ to have Pureple design a look. …”
We also loved how Miss Freddy photographed her clothes: Light colored, smooth background, same wood hangers nicely hanged garments.

“I took photos and out them all into Pureple, a closet organizing app. The outfit-maker helped me check the mixing and matching and I have at least 36 outfits!”

“I have this secret fantasy that one day I’ll become exorbitantly wealthy and have Visual Therapy consultants come to my home and help me build outfits out of my closet. Until that day comes I’ve opted to try something more affordable by downloading the free app Pureple.”

Pureple – An App for Building Outfits
Thank you dear Paula for such a wonderful review!
We have gone quiet for the last few days. Seattle weather tricked us again. A cold has been keeping us under water, causing delays in responding to your emails. Please accept our apology. We missed talking to you and will be back on email, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram soon.
And here is the good news!! (drum roll please :)) Our next update is getting ready with features you have been asking for. Building your wardrobe and finding what you are looking for will be easier than ever (hint, hint), thanks to your suggestions. We so love how the new version looks! I hope you will, too. Keep an eye on us on Social Media (@purepleapp) for preview screenshots and let us know what you think. By the way, what is your favorite social media channel?
Q: Did you misspell purple? Why did you name the app Pureple?
A: No. Well, yes and no. Although it’s not uncommon we misspell certain words, purple was not one of them. We had to misspell it to be able to register a domain name (www.pureple.com) as purple.com was taken long ago. Purple is the color our daughter, then 4 year old, was fascinated with. We wanted to include her to this new night and weekend project mom & dad is talking about passionately for hours. Now 6 years old, she draws some of the art we use in marketing. Soon you might see some on the blog.
Q: Is it the movie ‘Clueless’ what inspired you for writing Pureple?
A: No, we wish we did watch ‘Clueless’ before writing Pureple. We found out about it from dear Pureplers after Pureple was released. Then we watched the Cher’s closet scene over and over. It’s so much fun to be associated with.
Q: Now a serious question. What sets Pureple apart from other similar apps?
A: Two among others raises to the top:
- Our Suggestion engine, which learns user’s style over time and suggests full outfits from your own closet.
- You do not have to take pictures of what you own to build your wardrobe. Pureple finds the images for you from the web. This allows building your wardrobe anywhere, when you get a chance. Plus, you usually get professional pictures. It also remembers where you added an item from, in case you’d like to go back and find out more about it.
Q: Do you use Pureple yourself?
A: Yes! We all do. Last I checked, I had 481 items and hundreds of outfits in my Pureple closet. With kids and busy work, that’s the only way I am able to plan my outfits. It helped me realize that first, I have too much items, most of them unused, yet, if I could find/see the right item at right time, I’d love to use them. Next, even though I am an organization freak, I both lack the time and a big enough closet to perfectly organize. With the technology we have right now, it is not only super easy digitally, it is also possible to organize in incredible ways e.g. all the different ways I can wear an item. Now I can get out of the house feeling pretty good about how I look even if I had only 5 minutes.
