Tailored To You - A Polyvore HQ Meetup

On November 14th, we opened the doors to our Mountain View HQ offices for a special meetup event. Fifty of our community members joined us from across Northern California, one member even traveled more than three hours to spend the day with us!
Mountain View MeetUp!
We kicked off the day with our co-founder and CEO, Jess, who welcomed everyone and shared a bit about Polyvore’s history. After that, it was time for a Q&A session with our product and design teams who answered all your burning Polyvore questions sourced from attendees and Twitter followers alike. Next up was a special Careers in Fashion and Design panel with industry professionals from The RealReal, ModCloth, and Brit + Co.

What’s a party without some good food? Mobowl food truck stopped by for lunch before we got our mini makeovers by Bare Minerals, personalized Polyvore t-shirts with Krucial Printing, and snapped some shots in the Say Ya photobooth. The attending members mingled and shared their Polyvore success stories while meeting the whole Polyvore Team.

We're so lucky to have such amazing, kind community members and it was a pleasure and a privilege to spend the day with them.
