I am waaaay behind in joining the bandwagon that is the (seriously!) wonderful world of Polyvore. I have no idea why I didn’t bother to peek around this god-sent (for the creative geeks) platform before, so for this I really have Popbasic to thank!
I received an email from Maddy + the Popbasic Team just yesterday afternoon regarding submissions of style guides for their latest collection by creating sets/collages on Polyvore. I thought to myself, “That sounds fun … let’s try this,” with an initially-mediocre amount of enthusiasm. And then I started working on it and basically spent my whole night getting creative. I LOVE IT!
All you have to do is to create sets using pieces from their Beta Micro Collection. So we have …
1) The Polka Dot Blouse
For the first look, I had wanted to juxtapose the bold polka dot top with softer hues. Also because I love pairing my outfits with Converse sneakers and … because today I saw the Prada cat-eye sunglasses and my stomach flipped.
In the second one, I was exploring my love for bright, bold hues. I love gold accents too. When I created this, I had the New York Girl in mind – trendy, bold and sophisticated. I have also been eyeing that pair of Asos loafers – and they’re now on sale! Yay!
2) Yellow & Gold Twist Necklace
These two outfits are very different from one another even though they share the same necklace! I really love how fashion can be interpreted in so many ways. Both are looks that I would definitely wear, and are influenced by the styles of Nicole Richie (obvious, isn’t it? (:) and Olivia Palermo respectively.
3) Midsummer Night’s Necklace
The Midsummer Night’s necklace is my favourite of the three because of some of these reasons: I’m really getting into jade-accented accessories right now, and it’s glam-bam!-yes-ma’am! I had so much fun styling this piece because of the colours. I have also been eyeing that particular pair of Asos blocked heels, on sale too here!! It was largely inspired by my current penchant for white dresses as well. I imagined Kirsten Dunst would look stunning in this.
As for the second outfit, Karla Deras really helped me with a similar outfit here, but of course, I’ve added my own twist to it.
I honestly had so much fun styling these pieces (just look at how I went crazy with the texts too!!) and playing around Polyvore (I can’t stop gushing about it to my girlfriends – and boyfriend). So thank you once again, Popbasic for this exciting introduction!
I would wear all these looks out, but can you guess which is my fave?
Also, remember to join Polyvore (and the Popbasic initiative!) and have tons of fun! xx
