Interview with Natasha11

Today's interview is with one of Polyvore's most talented members, Natasha11. Natasha is a 39 year old publisher and mother of two from Belgrade, Serbia. Natasha has been using Polyvore for over a year and has built up a huge fan base -- without fail, her sets always get at least 50 likes! Natasha is particularly good at discovering unique new items that no one else has used before. Her sets tend to be very high fashion, looking like they belong in the pages of Vogue. She's also a whiz at color coordination and has a knack for mixing different textures and fabrics in unusual but beautiful ways. For example, she'll pair a luxurious lace-trimmed dress with a crocheted coat and suede ankle boots.

6th place in the Gala Darling: How to Wear contest

Tell us about yourself.

I’m a 39 year old from Belgrade, Serbia in Europe. I’m a publisher and have a partner firm at home, so I’m on my PC almost all day long. I’m a proud mom of two daughters who are 15 and 11 years old.

Describe your sense of style/fashion.

My personal style is very casual, mostly pants and jeans, but it depends on the occasion of course. It's all about matching colors and materials with my own personal taste and mood. I love to try different styles on myself and others. So my sets are like that...casual, elegant, romantic, etc

How did you discover Polyvore?

I discovered Polyvore through Facebook. Ever since then, whenever I’m not working, I’m always on Polyvore

Tell us a little about what you use Polyvore for and why.

I use Polyvore to improve and evolve my creativity. I also use it to learn about other people's cultures. It’s my favorite hobby and a great relaxation from my daily work.

Describe your set creation process.

First I pick an item which attracts me and start from there. The outfit develops by itself. Most end in drafts, where I try to figure out what to change or add. I’m very happy to be the first to use an item and have it first seen in my sets, but if I can't do that, I try to make a different match using other items.

What are your 3 favorite sets of the ones you've made?

Street Style 69

Dark Side

Mother in law

No, you guys are great! You make my day filled with joy!
