Unlocking the mysteries of Polyvore:
'The Perfect Afternoon' by Grace Phillips
I had no idea the depths of Polyvore. I actually had never heard of Polyvore. You see I don't have a 12-year-old daughter. But I flew into D.C. yesterday and spent a lovely afternoon with my niece Gracie.
I cannot begin to do justice to how exciting Polyvore is. Let me just say this is the land of some great graphic designers: Z0E[the]HiPPiE ♥brooke21♥ Fashion-a-Holic GOLDiELOX™ and many more.
Back in the day, girls (and yes they are mostly girls) had to scrounge magazines, cut them up, find poster board and create collages that, once glued down, were set, uneditable and after a short stint taped on the wall, spent a few dusty years behind the dresser.
With Polyvore, designers can make a super cool collage in minutes and share it with all their friends and Polyvore contacts for ever.
Some of their work is on the next page...
.. this is part of a 3 item set by Fashion-a-Holic
... and a piece by Z0E[the]HiPPiE made for MadMango
... and I will finish with one more by Gracie ( GOLDiELOX™ ) that she made for turtlelover12.
Thanks, Gracie. Love your work.
