I credit Barbie, for planting the seeds of inspiration that led me to want to be a fashion designer. I loved dressing her up, creating looks and designing outfits just for her. I often changed the outfits on the figures in my coloring books, and I loved Colorforms, where you could remove the sticky plastic items of apparel and accessories and change the look in a matter of seconds.
So, it comes as no surprise that I love Polyvore, the site that allows you to select items from various designers and manufacturers to create a mood board of your favorite styles of the season. It’s like the toys of my childhood, updated for grownups, and complete with the technology of the times. And everything on the site is available to be purchased, so you can make your vision a reality.
Who wants to play dress up with me, 2009 style?
