these are great sets. But I would personally love to know why my sets weren't chosen. You were looking for a stylist. Someone who knew the person. I styled for someone a certain height and build. Was it not what you were looking for in the description. I would like constructive critism as being a stylist/consultant is a career I want to pursue after taking Fashion Marketing this fall.

Congrats and all the best ladies! im hoping a girl who has been on Polyvore and uses it time and time again wins rather than someone who has just signed up for this specific contest.
I think people always like to see their fellow polyvarians do well!

Does anyone know when they notify/announce the winner? I thought that was supposed to be yesterday? Congrats to all 50 finalists though!!

I had so much fun making the sets, I made 3 for this contest! The only thing I would have done differently if I had the chance would have been to make more sets!

Is there a chance this contest could happen again?

:) I'm not that interested in the TV part, personally but the rest sounded like a blast! Maybe this could turn into a seasonal thing!

Q1: What has been the impact of this contest for Piperlime...Was there a significant bump in sales, any surprises?

Q2: What was the most essential element, that had to be there for a set to be chosen? How many judges were on the panel?

I would like to know why my sets weren't chosen. I personally feel like my sets were better than a lot that were chosen and I built a story with a woman that I took from work to play, to her best friends wedding and her high school reunion. I also entered the contest at the very beginning and I felt like a lot of the looks were repeated and very similar to mine...I'm disappointed I thought I had a strong shot at being chosen..oh well...

To strawberry fields...how about the people who entered the contest and were therefore introduced to polyvore?? Do they not deserve to win just because they had never posted to polyvore before? If you read the contest rules, 40 percent of winning is your writing skills, something that isn't required when you post a set on polyvore.

Does anyone find it interesting that the top 3 finalists shown in the 50 finalist sets were all contacted by Piperlime a year ago?? You have to wonder if this "contest" was merely a job opening in which Piperlime already knew whom they wanted. It seems as though Piperlime decided to make a job opening a glorified money making publicity stunt, labeling it a "contest". A company doesn't jump from giving away gift cards and free shopping to a $20,000 paid position as a "prize". No surprise here.

To anonymous (theres a surprise) alot of the girls on Polyvore actually do ALOT of writing to accompany their sets,so im very used to seeing stories or scenarios accompanied by an outfit.
Yes its not required but the girls on here are more than capable.

However i do want to see someone i am friends with win,like anyone would.And i would find it suspicious if say a stylist from somewhere in the USA came on here made a few sets for Piperlime contest then went on to win.
I would like to see the door opened for someone who has a dream of being a stylist.
