I Want More Polyvore

So we stumbled across this cool site recently named Polyvore. In a nutshell, it is a web-based application that allows you to save items from a web-store and load these items into a virtual dressing room to create outfits. Pretty cool, huh? We thought so and we have been playing around with it for the past week. We'll be the first to admit that pulling together pictures of outfits on our site can be time consuming and painful (a lot of opening, editing, pasting, saving - not to mention loading into the web page and mapping the links). The beauty of Polyvore is that the application does all of this work. With a few clicks, it pulls in the image and adds it to your list. When you use the item in an outfit, the link and store information appear below. Plus, you can use items from multiple sites easily in one outfit. You can then embed your saved outfits in a web page or blog (below is the first outfit we created - if you click on it, you will be sent to our Polyvore page and you can view the outfit ingredients):

Hi Isabella - I know how you feel. This site is so addictive and I also spend way too much time there. Neen has a great blog - nice to meet you!
