Check out these apps tried and approved by your Tampa Fashion and Beauty Examiner:
Stylebook -- If you love an organized wardrobe, this app is perfect for you.

With its built in calendar, it also allows you to keep track of when you wore each outfit so you wont get caught wearing the same thing twice. Download the app at Stylebookapp.com. Price: $3.99
OPI Nail Studio -- If you're wasting too much time at the salon trying to pick a new color for your mani or pedi, this app could be a real time-saver. Once you download the app you select the skin tone that's closest to your own, then test out different polish shades to see what looks best on you. Get the app at the iTunes app store. Price: Free
