How can I join?

Sassique is currently invite only. To join, please request an invite. After receiving an invite code, you can sign up and start building your profile.



How does it work?

After creating an account, you can start to build a collection of products and looks. With the Snip Button, you can add things from other websites. Snip clothing and accessories from online stores and add them to your catalog. Snip cool fashion photos from other websites and add them to your lookbook. We like it when you snip content from our list of shops because it means high quality content that is also shoppable.

Tag products and looks according to trends, materials, and colors. Create product collections and looks in your scrapbook easily.

Earn points by getting page views on your profile, or by adding the right products and earning "stars." You can also earn "ribbons" for your scrapbook looks. If you want to know more about what we're looking for, check out our Curation Guidelines.



What are the rules?

The site rules can be found here. Please read them carefully.



What is the Top Curator Award?

At the end of every month, we award our top curator a gift voucher or cash prize, as well as recognition across our social networks. To win the "Curator of the Month" award, you just have to earn the most points (stars) for the duration of one calendar month, for items posted in your catalog and lookbook. You can post a maximum of 100 photos in your lookbook and 200 products in your catalog every month.

We try to do interesting prizes every month! Unless otherwise specified, the prize is a $100 ASOS voucher, or cash equivalent. (payable via paypal)



How can I earn points?

We have different ways of earning points on Sassique:

Stars
Our editors select top products & looks to appear on the main pages of our catalog, and award a "star" for each selected. If the product or look is snipped from our list of favorite shops, 2 stars are awarded.

Page views
We count the number of unique page views that each of your lookbook pictures, catalog items, and scrapbook pages receive. One unique visitor can give you one page view point per day.

Ribbons
The Editors select top scrapbook pages to be featured in our list of featured pages. You will receive a "ribbon" for every page that is chosen from your scrapbook.



How can I lose points?

You can lose points if you not follow our Curation Guidelines. You can also lose points if you do not tag correctly or enter the wrong brands or categories.

Products and lookbook pictures will be marked with a "red dot" if they do not fit our guidelines or are out of stock. You can earn all your "lost" points back by removing the posts marked with a red dot.



What is status?

Status is your membership level that's assigned to you by both community members and Sassique staff.

Rookie

Curator
A Curator is a member that has been promoted, after demonstrating the ability to correctly tag looks and products, assign the right brands to products, and follow our Curation Guidelines.

How can I install the Snip Button?

You can easily install the Snip Button by dragging a bookmarklet to the bookmarks bar of your web browser. You can find the instructions here.



But where is my bookmarks bar?

If you can't see the bookmarks bar in your web browser, you need to make it visible.

Google Chrome: Select from the top menu "View" -> "Always Show Bookmarks Bar"
Safari: Select from the top menu "View" -> "Show Bookmarks Bar"
Firefox & IE support coming soon!



What is a Lookbook?

A lookbook is a collection of photos of looks for fashion inspiration. The photos are posted (snipped) from our list of shops and may or may not represent items for sale. Please read the site rules regarding the lookbook.

Our group lookbook is divided into three parts: "Editors Picks" and "Recent" and "Most Viewed." The "Editors Picks" page is for looks liked by our Editors, and the "Recent page" is for looks recently posted by all members of our community. Your own personal lookbook is under your profile and contains looks that only you have posted.



How can I tag my photos in the lookbook?

You can tag photos while you snip them to the lookbook. You can change the tags later by going to the page of the photo and click "Edit Details" to change the tags.



Can I tag other people's photos in the lookbook?

No, you can only tag photos that you have added yourself.



What is a Catalog?

A catalog is a collection of products found on the internet. Products in the catalog are grouped into categories and brands, and described by tags. There are two types of catalogs: your own personal catalog and the group catalog. Your personal catalog is under your profile and contains products that only you have found. Regardless of your status, your products will appear in the group catalog if they have been marked with a "star" by our Editors.



How can I add products to my catalog?

To create your own personal catalog of products that you find on other shopping websites, you need to install the Snip Button.



How do I add products from someone else's catalog to my catalog?

You can't. A catalog consists of your own product finds, and we try to prevent having duplicate items. This is why you want to be the first to find cool products! You can still "save" a product so you can find it later, by adding it to your scrapbook.



How can I tag products?

You can tag products and looks while you snip them into your catalog. It is possible to enter more than one tag per product, or enter no tags. Your products are more likely to appear in searches if they are tagged correctly.

If you would like to edit the tags of a product, go to the product details page and click the "Edit Details" button.



How can I remove products?

To delete products from your catalog, go to your personal catalog and click on the item and you should see a pop-up window. Then click "Delete."



What is a scrapbook?

A Scrapbook is a place where you can group and arrange products. Each page represents a new collection. You can put all your favorite shoes on one page for example, or assemble a summer look, etc. You can create as many pages as you like.



How can I add products to my scrapbook?

First browse products in the catalog. To add a product to your scrapbook, click on an item in the catalog and then select the page you would like to add it to.



How can I edit the title and description of my scrapbook pages?

In your profile, select "Scrapbook" from the menu on the right. Then click on the page you would like to edit, and select "Edit" on that page.



What if I don't want people to see my profile or my collections?

This is a social fashion community. So, everything you add is visible to other members. It is not possible to keep a private profile.



How can I follow shops?

It is possible to follow shops on the Shops page. This is handy so you can come back to your list later. Click "Follow" to follow, and "Unfollow" if you do not wish to follow the shop anymore.



What should I do if someone harasses me?

Please contact us immediately at info@sassique.com and we will block the user that is harassing you.



Why is there no pricing information?

This is a website about fashion inspiration. We thought about including the product prices, but that makes fashion less fun in some respects. If you would like to know pricing information, you can visit the website where the product is originally featured.



Can I buy products on this website?

Yes, you can buy products by clicking on a product in the catalog which will take you to the product details page. If you click "Buy it" then you will be redirected to the website where the product is sold.



Can I join if I'm a guy?

All genders are welcome to join, but products and looks on this website must be for women.



How can I change the background picture on my profile?

Sign in, and from the top menu, select "edit profile" and then scroll down to where it says "Change Background Picture"
