There is a new time waster at work besides Facebook and Twitter.

With InStyle Magazine's new social networking game called Instant Stylist, you get the shopping high without the financial guilt.

And, well, you can do it from your desk at work.

The online fashion game allows users to put together outfits, receive styling tips, and compare their score to other players.  It's "Project Runway" meets "What Not To Wear."

For me, it brought the days of playing with paper cutout dolls into the digital age.
