Day #14: Discovery!

Today I had a moment of discovery, love, excitement, and obsession all wrapped in one.

It started just a couple hours ago as I followed a pin on Pinterest to its original source...

My thoughts went something like this,

"Ummm... WHAT?! You're telling me there is a virtual style board where you can search a giant database of beautiful clothing and accessories and then put together collages of your dream outfits?"

Where the eff have I been???

I've seen these super cute outfit posts roaming all over blogland and I honestly didn't realize there was some genius website behind it until now. Talk about a new obsession!

I think most of you know I'm talking about Polyvore.

Now, I'm not a fashion blogger and I don't intend to be, but as an artist turned designer I love to express myself through my personal style.

I feel like dressing yourself is a form of design... whether you realize it or not, all of the elements and principles of design are involved. You are like the canvas and your closet is like a collection of your favorite tools, materials, and supplies you need to create your masterpiece.

So every morning I like to have a little fun and create an expression of myself through what I wear. I love to choose items based on color schemes while carefully evaluating the overall contrast, balance, and harmony. I tend to match everything with a gray or black, but I like to play up color in my tops and accessories.

I guess you could call my style artsy/classic? I don't really know.

I just had a moment today where I wanted to introduce a little of my fashionista side to you guys, and instead of going all Zoolander and posting ridiculous pictures of myself, I now have Polyvore to thank for helping me share my personal style :)

What do you think of my first set? It was inspired from the very outfit I wore today, even though the versions I have aren't even close to the pretty penny some very fortunate people would spend on these gems... :)

What are some of your new discoveries?
