Polyvore. Have you used it lately? Or ever?
I’ll be the first to admit that the idea of it seemed a little…cliche? It seemed that if you were into fashion and were in tune with it’s relationship with the online world, that you most likely sat around making polyvore sets with nothing else better to do. (Farfetched?)
Well (my?) stereotypes aside, I decided to finally utilize the website in its entirety and figured I would make my very own first set. My respect for this portion of the website thoroughly increased. First off, though I do not see myself creating sets with all of those fancy backgrounds and inspiration collages any time…ever…I will say that that crap takes A LOT of work. I initially thought that it was kind of silly (just being honest here..) to go through all that business just to accompany your outfit set, but they do create a really complete inside look into what the user was inspired by, which is kind of cool. Second, there have been times where I have fantasize about the wonderful things I could create if my closet was a tad bit bigger. Unfortunately, I would then be awoken by the fact that I, like most, do not have the funds to continuously feed my closet with amazing pieces to aid every expressive impulse. This website does that. The only downside is that you may not be able to wear it, BUT just the journey of selecting items and changing concepts in your head with the endless amount of options they have almost equally meets that quench for expression.
Basically, though I may be real late to the game here, this website seems to be a really good option for exploring different ideas and styles you’ve never ventured into before for free and with an endless online closet. Awesome.
