Omiru named one of Time’s 50 Best Websites for 2008

June 16th, 2008

Time Magazine LogoI’m honored to announce that Omiru was named one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites for 2008!  Here’s what Anita Hamilton of Time Magazine says about us:

"Focused on "real style for real people," Omiru doesn’t just tell you what the fashion trends are — it helps you figure out what actually looks good on you…The site recommends dresses for curvy petites and accessories for your little black dress. Sure, tips like these are sprinkled throughout more mainstream fashion sites like Glam and Style, but Omiru’s laser focus on practical fashion advice makes it a don’t-miss."
