I don't do many "Get the Look" sets. Polyvore is playtime... I don't want to be limited by another person's creativity - I want to use my own! When I saw this picture however, with the amazing purple coat, I decided to make an exception. It wasn't easy -- I really didn't want to use the bag! I found a stunning purple Chanel bag that was totally me and it matched like it was made just for this coat! In the end though, accuracy to the image trumped my taste in fashion. I know I tend to be much more "matchy matchy" than the fashion experts advise, but that's what I like! I love this purple coat for another reason too... it reminds me of the first signs of Spring back when I was young. I remember suffering thru the long, cold winters, being starved for bright, beautiful colors. I always knew Spring was on it's way when the pretty little crocus flowers started poking thru the snow! I couldn't help but marvel at those vivid purple flowers who seemed as desperate for Spring as I was. They didn't bother waiting for the snow to melt. When they decided it was time to bloom, they poked their little stalks right thru the frozen ground and snow. Seeing those vivid purple blooms sitting amongst the stark white landscape was a like a welcome promise... it may still look like winter, but never fear - Spring would soon chase it far away!!

Style This....

Style This....

It all starts with that one item. That one piece of clothing, shoes, fabric, picture, jewelry, etc....that you are compelled to style. And when you do, it's magic! I will be hosting challenges where an item caught my attention...or yours (suggestions are welcome) and you will be asked to style it. Some challenges will be clothes only, while others will be whatever you like. This group is open to everyone! I look forward to seeing how creative we can be by styling that perfect item. Let's have fun!

The Big Picture

The Big Picture

For the most part I am an outfit only sets fan. But I do enjoy making sets with one large picture in the background. So I've decided to make a group for sets like this. I am NOT a fan of templates, or busy/messy sets with lots of pictures, text, articles, designs, etc. Minimal props will be allowed. All sets are welcome, but contests will follow the stated guidelines. Hope you enjoy this group!! Have fun!

Perfect Picture (one background picture only)

Perfect Picture (one background picture only)

I love creating sets with ONE background picture. All it takes is a perfect picture, an outfit, and minimal amount of props to make a beautiful and not over-the-top set. Classy and elegant!
 
Join if you would love to participate in a contest with this type of set. I'll be selecting the contest theme every 3 days. Have a great day everyone!
