My First Polyvore

I have lost the battle with another website. I just created my first design board on Polyvore. As I’m brand new to the sight, I know nothing about how to use it. I am a very visual-kinetic learner, so I just jumped right in and started doing things.

I thought I would share my first go. Feel free to comment. My feelings aren’t especially delicate, but I prefer critiques that will assist me in developing a more professional style to ones that tell me I’m awful! I’m working on my bachelor’s degree in Communications with a Fine Arts emphasis, but design boards have never been used in any of my classes, so I’m trying to teach myself how to use them.

I chose items that I liked the look of, with no thought to the price (a girl can dream, right?)

This would be a nice outfit for a business-casual office during the lovely spring weather in southern Iowa. I work in a very casual office. Unfortunately, a white blazer would never stay clean here, as I am the office manager for the maintenance department at the university I attend, and my office is actually located in the maintenance shop. I could wear everything else, though. My makeup choices reflect a very light, neutral face with a little extra color pop on the nails. I would pull my hair back in a loose bun with the flower hairpin for a little bit of whimsy.

Please let me know what you think!
