Deena Varshavskaya holds an item she found on Wanelo.
Wanelo -- a compression of "Want, Need, Love" -- is a social network for online-shopping addicts, combining the hallmarks of Pinterest and Twitter. Here's how it works: Users upload images of products they want (or need or love). Members can follow other users or brands and cultivate their favorite items by "saving" a picture -- Wanelo's version of "pinning." Each image has a "buy" button that leads to a page on, say, J.Crew.com or trendy e-tailer NastyGal.com, where the item can be easily purchased.
