Have you used Polyvore?


I am in two minds about Polyvore.  I can't decide if I love or hate it.  Let me explain why.

LOVE - What an amazing site.  So easy to use and create the most wonderful outfit ideas.  It's like the world’s largest wardrobe that is there for you to use.  I love looking at other people's creations and trying to make them work for me

HATE - I have spent so so so so many hours on there!

Here are some of my favourite creations:





















If you would like to follow my creations on Polyvore or Twitter then please feel free – the more the merrier I say, I will follow back.

Does anyone know how to create sets from items ONLY available in the UK?  I seem to be seduced by all these lovely items only to discover they’re all US stockists!

I’d also love to see your creations posted in the I Love This section on Avenue 57 – it’s easy to do!  Email me if you need any help – fiona@avenue57.com

So do you like putting outfits together?  I love playing virtual dress up and only wish I have the budget to buy it all in real life.

  2. Hi, as you know I am HUGE fan of Polyvore. It does get easier, but so so addictive. LOL.

    I have a group called Boden is Bodacious (http://www.polyvore.com/boden_is_bodacious/group.show?id=53914), and it features sets with at least one Boden item. So there is at least one group that is British clothing centered. I believe there are sets with ASOS and TopShop, too, in other groups, but I don't know which ones are those.

    Anyhow, if anyone wants to dabble in Polyvore, go ahead and join the site, "follow" me, and message me, and I can help with any questions any of you all have. (Find me here: http://dinagideon.polyvore.com/) :)

    I love your sets, btw. That top one is especially scrumptious.

  4. I've had a quick play and still haven't got to grips with it ... but when I do - there will be no stopping me. I think.
