Polyvore LOVE!



Girly Room

Fashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore



Last night I got totally sucked into the world of Polyvore and didn't go to bed until almost 2:00am. I was having so much fun, I didn't even realize what time it was. Have y'all ever been to Polyvore? It is AMAZING! You can basically make little collages of everything you'd ever want in a room, and each item has a link on it to where you can buy it and the price. The possibilities are endless. You just type in what you're looking for and pages and pages of choices come up for you to scroll through. You can categorize it by color, price, type of item, etc. And it's not just home decor or interior design, there's art and fashion as well. It is a really cool site. I had so much coming up with an inspiration board for a dream room for my girls. This is what I would do if money were no object and I could go out today and buy anything I wanted. Now, that is fun to think about! I am obsessed with this lovely shabby chic color pallete right now....lots of white with touches of soft aqua and a whisper of pink...so pretty and soooooooooooo girl. One of my very favoite items I found are those drapes and unfortunately something is wrong with the picture. I wish you could see the full view of them. The top third is a gorgeous smocked material and it is heavenly. And such a bargain at only $195 a panel! Haaaaaaaa...I wish. And those aqua pillows....a mere $220 a piece. I cannot even imagine being able to go out and buy anything I wanted, no matter the price. I think even if I was rolling in money I'd still have a hard time spending money so lavishly....it's just not my style. But it IS fun to dream! What about y'all? If you had a money tree...would you be spendy or thrifty????



FYI...we are having a fun paint giveaway over at the CSI Project today. Be sure to stop by and check it!!!

OHHH, THOSE DRAPES! I'm officially sucked in and I haven't even made it to the website yet! Thanks for sharing :)

Oh, I'd definitely still be thrifty. That's just me (cheap & easy!!), and I think that's part of the fun in our treasure hunting, don't you?

I adore the smocked sheers. Adore.

Oh my goodness, how much fun! Thanks for the site tip, I see some late nights in my future...

If money were no object I think I would be spendy. I would like to be thrifty but I am intimidated to DO IT MYSELF and never finish any thing I start... I would rather buy the distressed piece of furniture than make it. Plus I am always drawn to the most expensive piece whether it be fabric, hardware, lighting, the list goes on... On the flip side I would still shop for the best price. So instead of $300 a panel drapes I would find them for $275 ;)

Have a great weekend!

Best wishes,
Tammy

Even if I had a money tree I would be thrifty! I'd still have my husband pick up shutters off the side of the road and shop at thrift stores! I always look at things and say "I can do that!" I'd probably go on more vacations, otherwise my spending habits wouldnt change!

So fun! I love your inspiration board! I too love smocking and have been in fact working on a little something. I am going to be making some curtains in my living room that are smocked too...will be showing a tutorial...be ready so you can have your very own with a little price! :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Victoria

Hi, first time visiting. I love Polvore too. It's been a huge help in redecorating my great room. I like combining furniture pieces similar to what I own and see how they'll work with various accessories.

Love the feminine space you created here.

I stumbled upon Polyvore by accident last November and I have been loving it ever since.

With soo much to do this weekend, I didn't need to read this!

I would be both spendy and thrifty, btw.

Thrifting is too much fun to give up!

Oh I have a polyvore account too, it is really cool- you can search for any type of clothing or household wares and I love looking at other peoples collages.

All things nice...
