I came across Polyvore one day by accident and I’ve been traveling to this site every day since! I was actually looking for a purse, that I had been searching forever for, and when I came across it(in what I then thought of as different type of mini ads) I was amazed…I didn’t understand what a set was, or even recognize some of the designer’s names, but I knew what I found was a gold mine…I sat on the computer for hours that day and I was even brave enough…lol…excited enough to create a set and even enter my first contest (What Would You Wear on the Titanic)…and even though my result was horrendous, I felt good about it…there was no judgement here…unlike a number of social sites, everyone here is encouraging, supportive, and welcoming. It’s wonderful to step away from your small world and go to a larger one where we don’t heatedly discuss hot topics, but instead we share and grow with each other. I love that you can connect with different people from across the globe to see what styles they think are hot, to see how they view art, and to see how they would design their living spaces.
Polyvore is such an awesome part of my life now, my hubby thinks it’s my new best friend…and of course my best friends think that too! I’m thankful for the site because it’s introduced me to new brands, new people, and enhanced my creativity…and while I haven’t decided to pursue anything (school/new job) because of it, it’s still a joy to me and I appreciate & value it because of that.
Thanks for allowing us to share our stories…it’s been wonderful reading about the people behind the sets! Thanks for having such a remarkable site and just allowing us to “be”!
