Do you Polyvore?

Yesterday was one of the few rainy days we've had this winter in southern California. It stormed for most of the day . . . it was perfect for staying indoors. After doing some closet cleaning, I spent several hours playing on Polyvore. 
Helsinki Weekend
Polyvore is a website where you can pull items, like clothing or furniture from a list and create a look, or what they call, a "set." You can be really creative . . . when I started (just a month ago!) I tried to be realistic in creating a fashion look - something I might actually wear,  but I quickly realized that I would have a lot more fun with looks that I would never, or could never, really wear (like high-heels.)

You can settle for the items already on the site, or "clip"other things you like from blogs, Pinterest (do you Pinterest?) or from a retail site.

I found these art prints via Pinterest and clipped them to Polyvore, so I could create these sets with clothing, jewelry, and other accessories. The colors and city themes in the art were fabulous.

This is so fun and relaxing for me. Sometimes I can spend too much time there, but I can be spontaneous, spend a lot of virtual money, and just enjoy being creative.
