Rebecca O'Dell, StylSavvy

    Rebecca O'Dell

Rebecca has a EE BS from Purdue University and has spent her career working for technology companies in the mobile space.

Rebecca designed and developed StylSavvy, a fashion iPad app, to provide one place for women to shop and style the 'complete look' from multiple retailers. The new outfits feature lets women design and share outfit collages including store products and items from their own closet. 

"When the iPad came on the market a couple of years ago, it was the perfect device for me to solve the issues I have with online shopping. I retaught myself coding and developed the StylSavvy platform: a native IOS iPad app, a RoR server, and a Mongo database. I learned Photoshop and took over the graphics."
