Meet @sweetdee55, a Polyvore member from Texas who has a love for Coach bags and Oscar de la Renta. Learn more about her here:
Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day (and anything you’d like to share).
My name is Diane, but everyone calls me Dee. My first job was as a mail girl for an insurance company, then I worked for a department store, which led to modeling in fashion shows for the store. That was fun! I then moved on to retail management, which I've done for many years. Typically, I wear skirts or jeans, and I love wedge shoes. I have two sons (whom I love more than anything), and my youngest is in the Air Force. I love to sew and read books and magazines. I also love trivia!
Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
Right now I'm staying outside of San Antonio, Texas, where bright colors are popular for skirts, tops, skinny jeans and large tote bags. Girls love their large earrings and chunky cuffs.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I love Coach bags because of the classic feel but modern designs and colors, and I do have a few. I'm also crazy for Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Diane Von Fürstenberg and Tory Burch. However, in my dreams, I have a closet full of Oscar de la Renta.
Which celebrity do you think has great style and why?
My all-time favorite is Audrey Hepburn! Enough said! The gals I style-watch now are Emma Stone, Nicole Kidman and Carrie Underwood, all of whom will be style icons in their own right.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
My aspiration is to have a stylist job. My goals are to travel the world, become a better artist, maybe write a book and open a tea-and-coffee shop.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore has become my most enjoyable pastime. It has rewarded me with the chance to connect with talented and kind people. It’s given me hours of creative fun, [opened up] a world of design and style I never thought I'd be a part of, and given me an opportunity to win fabulous prizes. I feel very lucky to be a member of Polyvore.
Describe your personal sense of style.
My personal sense of style? Always dress to show the world you care about how you look. Never wear sloppy or ripped clothes! And I always wear pink lipstick!
How would you describe your set style?
I love making sets that tell a story or at least have a theme. I feel like I'm creating artwork so I want it to reflect a mood or feeling. Fashion sets are my favorite, but I also enjoy doing art sets and, lately, the interior sets are so much fun.
Got any requests for the Polyvore team?
Yes, keep up the great work you do! No complaints here, only love!
