There's a new emoji app from one fashionphile to another. It's called LOLy and it's the brainchild of Gina Pell, the shopping expert and founder of Splendora. Her online guide to spending money and having a good time in SF, NYC, and LA may now be a part of Joyus, but Gina shows no signs of slowing down her creativity. And LOLy is for those texting moments when Apple's emojis just don't cut it. SFGate reports that Vanessa Getty, Alexis Traina, Ali Pincus, and Serena Fairchild are LOLy users. The one snag is that you'll have to send that Goyard-esque tote or Chanel-esque tweed directly from the app (or with a copy and paste function) because it's not integrated into Apple's iOS. That said, the fashion-related emojis are "totes" fun—and free.
