If You're Not Using Pinterest To Shop, You're Doing It Wrong

Our wallets aren't prepared for this.

Earlier this month, Pinterest unveiled a brand new visual search feature. Pinterest's new tool allows users to zoom in on a pin and find visually similar objects, color patterns, and more. For folks who use Pinterest as a veritable treasure trove of shopping inspiration, this tool is basically a dream come true.

If you've ever pinned a gorgeous pair of boots but didn't know where to buy them, you know the Pinterest struggle is real. This visual search feature is changing the game, allowing Pinners to shop clothes, shoes, jewelry and home goods like never before. Just zoom in on a pin, select the item you want to search for, and shop your little heart out! Here is a quick tutorial to get you started.
