Have you heard of Polyvore? When I heard of it the first time it made me think of something along the lines of herbivore, carnivore, etc. It has nothing to do with that. It is yet another social media site where you can connect with friends and while I tend to think we may have too many of these types of sites these days (I can totally get overloaded on all the places to ‘connect’ with people.) I love polyvore.
I am not obsessed and don’t visit every day and yet I really love Polyvore.
It is a social media site for both fashion and decorating. I honestly have looked much at the decorating side of it. I love the fashion side of the site.
The way Polyvore works is that people like me or you can go on and create outfits(which I have never done). They are then available for anyone to view. Once you view an outfit you can ‘like’ the outfit, the creator of the outfit or even a specific shirt or accessory. You can also add the outfit into a collection. You can view the prices of all the pieces of the outfit and order what is available from the web.
Here are 2 outfits that I have added to ‘My Favorites’ collection.
While I enjoy fashion, it is not an obsession for me. I have really enjoyed Polyvore because it has helped me define my style. I don’t really enjoy shopping, so when I go, I like to know what I want…get it, get out and move on.
By using Polyvore, I have learned that I really love simple style. A simple, plain shirt with a cute bag or cute shoes, maybe an accessory or two. Now, maybe this was obvious to other people, but I hadn’t figured it out. Polyvore, helped me figure it out and be able to be a bit more clear about what I want and what I like. I could see it in visual form. For me that really helps me know when I go shopping and I keep looking at the purses, there is a reason, I like purses and I have learned I like matching them to my outfit when I can afford it. I see that I am drawn to a few accessories and color. I have color in my wardrobe, but I think I will work on adding some fun accessories.
If you are like me and like feeling fashionable but aren’t totally certain what your style is, I recommend Polyvore to help you define it. If you love fashion, you will love Polyvore just because it is all about fashion.
Also please leave me a comment to let me know if you enjoy this, I could always start regular posts with my current Polyvore finds if you are interested.
Hope you enjoy Polyvore like I do!
