Something Blue

I discovered Polyvore during my holiday break...and hence found a new obsession. If you haven't heard of it, it's a site where you can create inspiration boards using images you've found on the web. The great thing about it is that it keeps the source links from all the images, so you'll never have to wonder who sold those shoes or what those flowers are called...just go to the sidebar and click on the individual item. You can search the images that have already been added to Polyvore by keywords, colour, and even price bracket, so if you see an ivory fur stole you love on the site, but it costs more than your car, you can search for a similar one within your budget.

Inspiration boards are great for pulling all the little details together and Polyvore makes it really easy. (Although there are certain sites that will not allow clipping to Polyvore, such as Ebay and Etsy, sadly...two of my favorite venues for finding unique items.) To collect images you've found online you'll have to download their app which sits on your browser's toolbar. From there, anytime you see a dress or necklace you like, you can just click the Polyvore app and then click the photo on the site.

Have fun...and don't play on Polyvore before your favorite show or if you have somewhere you need to just might not make it. ;)

Anyway, now that I have an easy way to present all my little findings, I'll probably be posting them a lot more ('coz this is what I do when I'm "taking a break.") Often the items on the board have a really high sticker price. But they're there for inspiration. So remember you can most likely find something quite similar within your budget.
