My Polyvore Story With Regallyblonde

How have you been since you visited us? 
I've been great — ready for a mini-vacation, so my husband and I have been planning a long-awaited trip to the Caribbean. I can't wait for some much needed R&R!

How's going? 
The business is growing steadily. My next step is to focus more on advertising my business on social media platforms and redeveloping my website to further grow my business.

What did you think about the Polyvore Mountain View meetup? 
It was an eye-opening experience to see how passionate local community members are about Polyvore and it definitely sparked inspiration to reconnect with my Polyvore roots and revisit different themes, designs and layouts that have highlighted my individual style on Polyvore.

Are you using Polyvore in any different, new ways? 
Apart from marketing my client's brands on Polyvore, I feel it is imperative to advertise visual content on my clients’ social media accounts — and what better way to do that than to showcase brand sets?!

What’s your favorite set you’ve made recently? 
From my personal account, I would say a set titled "A Day at the Beach" because it definitely puts me in vacation mode and I love the soothing color scheme! Here it is:

My Polyvore Story With Ruibri

How have you been since we last saw you? 
I've been great, albeit not happy about this brutal weather. I am currently continuing to take classes at FIT and am also interning.

How is school?
This spring was the start of my fifth semester, which I am enjoying so far. This particular semester just happened to be less major-focused and more liberal arts focused.

What classes are you taking this semester? 
Which is your favorite and why? I am taking Cross Cultural Studies, Intercultural Communication, Italian I, Leadership Development Retailing, Philosophy: Ethics, and Strategies of Business Communication. Although I find all of my courses this semester to be very interesting, Intercultural Communication is my favorite. The course is self-explanatory through its title; I feel that it is a topic that is becoming increasingly important because of the now global distribution of wealth, and thus the expanding market for the fashion industry.

Did the Mountain View meetup change anything for you?
The meetup at the Polyvore headquarters not only made me appreciate all the various ways that Polyvore has changed the lives of their users, but also inspired me to use Polyvore in different way

How has the meetup changed your approach to Polyvore?
I have definitely begun to embrace creating sets on my phone. It's been a wonderful way to engage in Polyvore when I have a break at my internship or between classes.

Get the New Clipper Extension!

Dear Polyvore Community,

We’ve updated our Clipper tool to help you bring images from across the web into Polyvore, including all the lovely things you find on Pinterest and Etsy. Save and create with all the things you love using the new Clipper extension!

Like before, importing things you see on the web is quick and easy. Simply download the Clipper extension, which will then live up by your browser’s search bar — just look for the “P”! When you see something you love or want to create with, click the “P” icon and follow the prompt. Boom! The image is now saved as a “liked” item in your profile and available for use by the Polyvore community.

Note: The new Clipper extension is for Chrome and Safari and (great news!) it’s always updating automatically behind the scenes, so you don’t need to do anything after the first download!

Also note: If you are using a different browser, no worries, you should still be able to use the original Clipper tool.

As always, let us know what you think in the comments.
