Tell us about yourself.
I'm Erin, from the U.S. originally Wisconsin, but now I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I'm 23, and currently a student. I love music--all kinds, especially punk and k-pop. I also love televison, so I make a ton of televison related sets.
How did you discover Polyvore?
I discovered Polyvore as an application on Facebook. I was bored so I checked it out, and I'm SO glad I did!
Tell us a little about what you use Polyvore for and why.
I use Polyvore to make a set about anything I want, just to express myself, my ideas for style. Also, I love seeing amazing things that other people come up with.
Describe your set creation process.
When I make a set, I usually start with one item that I really like, whether it be a dress, blouse, skirt, pants, shoes, bag...whatever, and then I build from there, and I just put together an outfit that I would like to wear if money and body were no issue. When I make a character set I just look at the shapes that make up the character and try to make those shapes with items.
What are your 3 favorite sets of the ones you've made?
Mr. Krabs, my favorite of all of my characters. I don't know why. I tried a million different things for his eyes, and it took me forever, so I was really pumped when I found that necklace. Also, I think the dollar on a fishing pole was a hilarious touch that I couldn't resist.
Hey Pachuco. I love this! I love the dress, I love the colors. I love the idea of wearing those red leg warmers on your shins with that dress and those shoes...also I love that model's hairstyle...it's so fun.
Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?
I don't know what to request of the Polyvore team, you guys are great, and every time I think of some feature that I would like, a few weeks later, you guys make it! But, if I had to think of something, I would like to be able to set items at an angle.
