Passerbuys is a recommendation website for women. It is the most authentic source for insider tips, guides, and advice. Featuring profiles of the interesting women we see passing by, the website is built around their real recommendations for everything from beauty products and books to local coffee shops and salons. In an era of hyper-curation, Passerbuys chooses to focus on the true lives and styles of the women in your city. We want to build a community where women help one another — offering each other genuine advice, everyday tips, and reliable recommendations.
About The Founder
"Passerbuys sprung from love of people watching. Having lived in Paris and now currently residing in New York City, every stroll is an aesthetic adventure. I would notice myself thinking about interesting looking Passersby, wondering about their personalities, lifestyles, homes, jobs, material possessions; just about anything! 'Where did she buy that bag?', 'I wonder what books she's reading?" "What kind of music is she into?' The idea developed from this feeling of having grown tired of tastemakers/influencer style blogs which I admittedly turn to all the time… they’re useful, but at the heart of it I find that they lack realness. This chasm between fabricated style and the style that people generate themselves really bothered me, and I wanted to create a website that put the focus back on real people, providing inspiration rather than instruction."
