I love Polyvore. It allows me to carry out all my outfit fantasies from the comfort of my own home without rushing around the shops like a crazy person, getting hot and sweaty in the changing rooms, feeling depressed when it doesn’t fit or look right and having to spend a ton of money. It’s like playing Barbie’s for grown-ups.
I’ve never really decided on a signature style and I don’t think I ever really will. I’m the same with music. I like motown, emo, hip-hop, dance, rock, punk, a bit of anything. I feel like my heart wants boho so I can dress like a hippy picking flowers in a field but my head is much more practical and knows that floaty white dresses and dangling tassles won’t last long in real life – especially with a baby.
When I was a bit younger, and working in an office, I went through a phase of reading a lot of fashion magazines and I wanted to wear pencil skirts and high heels and look professional. I quickly grew out of that phase though and can now be found wearing jeans and t-shirts and just gazing dreamily at blogs wishing I could look as stylish and put together as Carrie, Olivia, Rose or Amy.
This inspired me to put some dream outfits together, and I used Polyvore to play around with mixing and matching accessories and clothes I stumbled upon online. I discovered some great brands I didn’t know about previously like *Michael Hill and at the same time saw some new trends from my regular faves like Topshop.
This is my ultimate summer boho look. Nice and simple with a white top, denim shorts & a pop of colour from the jewellery. I can just imagine chilling on the ferris wheel at Coachella in this.
I couldn’t help myself! I had to include a beachy look. I’m spending so much time at the beach at the moment I can barely think of anything else! I love the nautical theme of the anchor necklace and the subtle silver ring will make your tan pop nicely!
Who doesn’t want to recreate that timeless classic look from Breakfast at Tiffany’s? This outfit works for any formal occasion and suits anyone. Dinner with your parents? Yep. Hot date? Yep. Night at the theatre? Yep. Covers all bases.
Now this is a look that I don’t think I’d ever be able to pull off. You’ve got to have serious balls to rock a look like this. But if you get it right, you’re guaranteed to be the centre of attention wherever you go.
Which is your favourite look?
