Interview with Maja Konestabo

Today's interview is with Maja Konestabo, who has been a Polyvore member for almost a year now! She's a fashion junkie and journalist from a small town in Croatia whose sets always feature a stunning pair of heels. She also likes to mix colors, patterns and textures which make for unique combinations.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Maja Konestabo. I'm 28 years old and live in Rijeka, a small town in Croatia. I work at our local TV station as fashion journalist and I have my own fashion show called "Journal." In that show I report about all fashion trends, fashion shows, models and trends.

Describe your sense of style/fashion.

I just love high heels so I wear them all the time I can. I also love dresses and jeans. But I can't say that I love just one style, like feminine or casual. My style is mix of everything and I just want to be different, and unexpected. Sometimes I wear jeans with converse and lot of accessories (scarfs, jewelry, shades) and sometimes I wear dressese with high heels and a clutch.

How did you discover Polyvore?

I'm a big fan of fashion blogs, and I read them every day. So I discovered Polyvore in a fashion blog a year ago, and now I am here every day.

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

Like I mentioned before, I just love high heels, and can't help my self. They really are my fetish. So Polyvore is a place where I can enjoy many beautiful heels, and mix them with all the other great items. Polyvore is fairytale for me, a virtual closet where I can use all my fashion inspirations.

Describe your set creation process. Where do you get inspiration
for your sets? How do you pick a theme? How do you find your items?

I find items that I like, and then start my creation process. But I never know where my inspiration will take me. Many times I start with one item, and then I find an item I like better than the first, so everything goes in different way.

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

That is a really hard question.

This is a set I made ten months ago when I was a beginner here on Polyvore, but I think it is one of my best sets.

This is an unexpected combination and I would definitely wear this.

I'm a big fan of Sex and the City and Sarah Jessica Parker is one of my favorite actresses. I enjoy her outfits, so I created this one. I think that would be a great outfit for Carrie...and for me of course!

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

Just keep your great work.
