Glimpse.com

Glimpse.com is a trendy, high-fashion site that lets fashionistas search for clothes, shoes, cosmetics and accessories. Fashion mongers can browse online stores, refine their searches by price, color or sale item, and see popular trends. The site is mostly aimed at women but does have some mens’ products. For instance, if you search for “skinny jeans” you might find one male item per search result page.

The site was recently acquired by TheFind.com for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition will leave Glimpse.com as a standalone site, but it will have its shopping search engine powered by TheFind.com. The new search engine will allow it to cover more online boutiques, brand stores and specialty fashion retailers.

Glimpse.com users will also get another feature out of the acquisition. The handy MyFinds bar will be added to the bottom of each Glimpse.com page. It allows shoppers to save product items as small thumbnails on the bottom each page. The feature works great as a quick comparison tool and shopping cart. You can also share your MyFinds’ items with friends.

The site includes higher-end online stores like Juicy Couture, Hollister, Burberry and Ann Taylor.
