Pinterest and Polyvore


Okay.

It’s completely possible I am the last person in the world to find out what Polyvore is all about, but I’m becoming almost as addicted to it as Pinterest.

It’s just the best of both worlds that I can pin what I create.

Unfamiliar with Polyvore or Pinterest???

Welcome to the Twenty First Century. 

It’s an honor to be your guide, call me Allison.

1) Pinterest.

I’m introducing you to Pinterest before Polyvore because that’s how it worked for me. I was talking to my roomate/suitemate about the site and we decided that I needed to make a board in honor of college. I never used the site, I found it boring. I felt the same way about Tumblr though, and that was sweeping the nation too.. so whatever. Things change!

Pinterest and I developed a bond unlike any other. Pinterest is currently open in a tab behind Facebook and my e-mail. It’s a close contender with Twitter, but I only use twitter on my phone.

Pinterest is defined in my head as a place to find pretty pictures of unhealthy food, workout tips, DIY projects that never turn out as good as planned, and jokes that entail what everyone is thinking but never says. You get to technologically create boards of these random things and sort them accordingly. Honestly, the people I follow pinterest I probably know better than the people that I don’t. All dirty laundry is shown at one time or another on pinterest.

And now you’re wondering why it’s taken you so long to sign up.

Well. Because Pinterest isn’t like most sites. You need to be super cool, and get an invitation. Want an invitation? Comment below with your e-mail.

Again, welcome to the twenty first century.

I am so happy to be the cause of your change.

2) Polyvore

It allows you to express yourself and be the personal stylist you may never actually have the opportunity to be… it lets you put together outfits that cost above and beyond what you can afford and label them whatever the heck you want. If you don’t know where to shop, but want to find something under a certain price point? That’s handy too.

I wanted glitter covered loafers. The Kate Spade ones are $200+ and I simply can’t afford that… So i searched under 50 and wa-la. New results.

None that really satisfied me like Kate’s.

But they’d work.

I’d gush more about polyvore,  but I’m still figuring it out. The good news is, you don’t need an invitation for polyvore. You can learn as you go.

You also will probably find people through Facebook or Twitter that you know, that are on both of these sites.. so they can help you out. That is my learning lesson for the day… Here’s an example of my latest and greatest polyvore board that I pinned:

 

I’m a proud mom. I love this board. 🙂
