My daughter got me started on Polyvore, and not only is it fun, but I think it helps develop your fashion sense. It is showing me that I have more fashion sense than I thought I had, though my daughters might disagree. Since I like Mexican peasant blouses, I decided to make a few outfits using these blouses.

I just love the shoes from Re-mix , and maybe I can save up enough money someday to get some. The purse is great, but at $2,170 is out of my league, though a crocheted tote bag in cotton would look just as good and would take the price down to about $20.
This striped tote bag costs over $200, but again, crochet can be your friend.
Now some sad news: this top, one of my daughter’s favorites (I sewed it for her last year) met an untimely end in a department store when my daughter was picking up a bottle of nail polish to purchase. The bottle top had not been put back on securely, apparently, and when she picked the bottle up by the cap, the bottle fell from the cap, splashing this poor top all down the front. Of course, nail polish stains are the worst, so the top is now out of commission permanently. She tells me that the store admitted it was their fault right away and will make restitution, because not only her blouse but her shoes were hit, too. Fashion disasters can happen to the best of us.
