Happy Birthday, Polyvore!

We’re getting the feels! Here are the highlights from this (totally crazy!) past year:
Whew! Another year’s flown by, filled with so many fun Polyvore Community experiences and events -- where would we be without you all? Thanks again for your support over the past 9 years. We can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!

Meet Our AW16 NYFW Community Correspondents!

New York Fashion Week officially kicks off this Thursday and we’re thrilled to announce this season’s Polyvore Community Correspondents. Meet Style Insiders kaitlyncostanzo and flawedparadise, twin sisters hailing from Pittsburgh, PA! They’ll be taking over our Snapchat on Feb 13, so be sure to follow Polyvore for a behind the scenes look at NYFW!

Get to know our correspondents:

Meet Kaitlyn (AKA kaitlyncostanzo

My name is Kaitlyn and I’m 21 years old. I’m from Pittsburgh and am currently a university student majoring in PR and Advertising. In the future, I hope to work in fashion and someday make a name for myself in the industry. I’ve always loved fashion, but it wasn’t until 2013 that I took my passion to the next level. I created my blog, The Layered Lineup, to express myself through fashion. I also use my blog to share my inspiration and connect with others in the community.

Your most anticipated AW16 collections? I look forward to Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rebecca Minkoff, Jeremy Scott, and Tommy Hilfiger.

How do you plan to use Polyvore to keep up with fashion week? I will be making sets inspired by street style I see at NYFW. I will also be making sets inspired by trends I spot on the NYFW runways.

Anyone you're hoping to spot around NYFW? I would "fangirl" the most if I saw Bella Hadid. She's my biggest fashion inspiration at the moment.

What are your Fashion Week essentials?

Keep up with Kaitlyn on Polyvore, Instagram & her blog.

Meet Arianna (AKA flawedparadise)

Hi, I’m Ari! I’m 21 years old from Pittsburgh, PA. I am currently a university student majoring in PR/Advertising. In the future, I plan to work in the fashion industry in any way that I can. Ever since I was a little girl I was always in touch with my creativity. I would constantly draw outfits and designs. Thanks to Polyvore, I can now share my style creativity in a different way.

What are you most excited to report back to the Polyvore community? I am most excited to show the Polyvore community all the new trends on and off the runway.

Your most anticipated AW16 collection(s)? I am very excited about Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Public School, Rebecca Minkoff, Nicholas K, & Jeremy Scott!

Anyone you're hoping to spot around NYFW? Sonya Esman of Class is Internal and the Hadid sisters.

What does your Fashion Week survival kit include?
