Ah, my latest British Musicians set :’) I’m not a huge fan of Coldplay but I do like their music like Yellow and the Scientist :)

LOL...the polyvore page seems to be very dysfunctional at the moment...the very large gap between your set and the tags, I’m sure it’s not meant to be that far away. With the profiles, it seems the sets look like it’s placed further towards the left. 
Polyvore is a dysfunctional site. Haha, kinda funny really. There's just always something wrong with it, even if its just a little thing. I wonder if anyone else has noticed...

I think Coldplay is a good call instead of Starfish :-) This is SO COOL!!! That McQueen clutch is amazing and you found just the right color of eyeshadow to go with it. The boots are amazing AS ALWAYS!!!! And I love that little kitty cat peeking out. Great work!
