I can’t lie…I’m finding myself growing an addiction to Polyvore. There is something about creating a set that really satisfies the designer in me. Then the hunt…hunting for the pieces or similar pieces to make my perfect online outfit a reality. It’s FUN.
Of course MOST of my sets wouldn’t be liked by the masses… I’m cheap. I’m a bargain shopper. I’m a MOM. Rarely do I have the opportunity, or frankly the interest, to buy an expensive fashion item. My reality is that:
a- it needs to be rather comfortable and versatile because I spend most of my time being Mommy.
b- it needs to be inexpensive because I’d rather spend my money on other things (my children) AND being a WAHM/SAHM means sometimes money is tight. But it’s something I’m willing to live with to be able to raise my kiddos my way.
c – I like to mix and match. So I’m much happier buying 5 inexpensive pieces than getting just 1. In my case… its totally quantity over “quality”
Yep I said it…how many fashionistas just cringed?? SORRY!
Anyway this is one of the fun looks I put together on Polyvore a few weeks ago 🙂
Now in all fairness. I did put this look together AFTER I purchased the above striped oxford shirt. I saw it on the clearance rack (it IS still available on sale on the ON website) and HAD TO HAVE IT. While it’s just a shirt, I have my reasons. First – It immediately said 4th of July, wear open with a tank under it and shorts, Second – it said ROCK CHALK JAYHAWKS! I get teased for always wearing my KU stuff, I love that I can “class up” my KU outfits with this, and third – it said GO RANGERS! I’m slowly but surely learning to enjoy Ranger baseball.
But once I had the look put together on Polyvore I couldn’t wait to try it out. Of course, everything looks better on the model, but that’s a given.
Now I just need the Riviera Monaco jewelry collection!! No worries…soon enough it will be mine!! <insert evil laugh here>
So yea…I’m lovin’ Polyvore. I’ve made several sets I can’t WAIT to find the pieces for. And I’m excited to make a few out of things I already have to get some inspiration for using items in new ways.
See me smiling up there?? Well NOT today! My baby turns ONE tomorrow morning and I am just sick over it. How in the world has a year flown by?? So thankful he’s still such a baby – enjoying every moment of it. And I may totally be thinking like this:
