Member Stories: Polyvore Is Eliana's Great Escape

Member Eliana Noei (here she goes by @fatal-poison-4-u) may have accidentally stumbled upon Polyvore while searching on the Internet for funny cat memes, but it didn’t take long for her to get hooked. Noei, a 24-year-old med student in Tehran, Iran, has found a swaddling-like comfort in Polyvore – it’s enabled her to connect with people globally, and it’s provided her with a creative escape. “Polyvore is blocked in Iran like many other sites. Logging in is a daily challenge,” she explains. “The most important factor in motivating me to put so much time and effort to just log on is my fellow Polyvorians. Their support and encouragement is heartwarming.”
 
Noei’s efforts haven’t gone unnoticed, as she’s created a multitude of beautiful sets, beauty tips and inspiring fashion boards that have yielded lots of likes and cool comments from the community. We were really excited to connect with the aspiring doctor (she plans to pursue surgery once she finishes school) and ask about her life and style! Check it out:
