What Happened To Instagram Story Highlights? Where Did They Go?

If you’re a startup that heavily relies on Instagram for marketing and community engagement, you are probably as enflamed as us about the sudden disappearance of Instagram highlights. We at ShopDrop hashtag @SHOPDROPAPP rely on Instagram stories & highlights to communicate to our 50K+ followers about the goodies and prices at different sample sales all over NYC.

Twitter is blowing up with questions of where thew IG highlights have gone and whether this is permanent.

We have been creating the stories for over 4 months now and you can imagine how shocked and frustrated we were when we realized (without any warning) that highlights were gone! Is that a glitch or an intentional hiccup on Instagram’s part? We vote with intentional hiccup and explain why below.

The missing IG highlights can be attributed to the launch of IGTV – Instagram just launched IGTV – and adoption has been slower than desired. For the most part, viewership of stories is less than 10% off followers, and it’s hard to convert story viewers into IGTV viewers. We think Instagram could have intentionally turned the highlight button off to push people into IGTV – if we’re correct, we’ll see more influencers work with IGTV and growth in the user numbers

Clothing Line Fashion Milly Sample Sale Sample Sale Review ShopDrop

Sheer Disappointment at the Milly and Publicolor Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

So I have to say, Milly had good intentions. All proceeds of today’s one-day sample sale benefit Publicolor, a New York based non-profit studying the psychological effects of color to improve the education among youth. However, as they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

This sale was one day only, so either you made it or you didn’t. They charged a cover, $20 for priority and $10 for regular admission. After they charged you to grace them with your presence, the prices were astronomical. I understand they need to turn somewhat of a profit to donate, but come on! If you’re charging people to come in, you need to meet them half way with better prices.

If you’re in the market for $100 shorts and feeling charitable, then the sale is for you. If you’re living among the other half and experience #BrokeGirlProblems, then you didn’t miss much.  Happy shopping!

The Madhatter! – Eugenia Kim Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to check out the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale in their own showroom! The room was filled with a variety of both summer and winter hats as well as a limited selection of shoes and bags.

The Eugenia Kim Sample Sale had whimsical summer hats that made us picture ourselves sitting on the French Riviera with a buttery croissant and cafe un latte, while the winter hats made us feel like we were wandering the snowy streets after completing some holiday shopping. I’m sure you have all seen the classic Eugenia Kim sun hat on bloggers and fashionistas across social media. This classic hat retails for $495 but today at the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale it is only $175!

We rated the Eugenia Kim Sample Sale a 5 out of 10. The merchandise is incredibly cute and chic for both winter and summer but still very expensive. There is a limited selection of shoes and bags, and the selection of hats is not big either. If you are traveling to a chic beach spot like Ibiza or planning on vacationing in Paris during the snowy Winter, we recommend you take a look!

Edgy Vibes at the Modern Vice Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Three words: super sassy shoes.  There are so many sick styles at the Modern Vice sample sale. From snake skin to lightning bolts, to stars, decorated the all leather selection of shoes and boots. Two collections were shown, Modern vice and Archive, that were discounted 50 – 70%. We strutted out with a pair of white leather lovers for $45, that were originally $178! If you’re not running over there to spice up your shoe collection, then at least go for the discounted leather!
