Interview with i think we're superstars

Looking through i think we're superstars' collection of sets, it's clear she was one of the early pioneers of the very artistic layout of miniature outfits. She's been a Polyvore member for 3 years and has an evolving sense of style that is truly unique. We caught up with i think we're superstars to find out what inspires her.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

I'm 21 and I live in Berkshire, England. I'm a recently qualified hairdresser and my goal is to be working and living in London in a few years. I'm also passionate about clothes so I'm also toying with the idea of a career in fashion. Having tried my hand at both, and enjoying aspects of each, it is a tricky decision to make!

How would you describe your sense of style/fashion?

Pretty changeable. Recently I've been going for a hip hop influence by throwing on some acid wash skinny jeans, gold bangles and high-tops, or other times a gothic vibe with dark and luxurious draping fabrics paired with lace up ankle boots.

What's hot in your 'hood right now?

I've seen a lot of denim jackets, aviator jackets and thick knits about, as well as an abundance of military style lace up boots in a beat-up leather.

What's one thing you wish people would wear more of?

Statement jewelry. One beautiful piece of jewelry can automatically make a plain get-up look 10 times cooler. Also, vintage one-offs and second hand leather jackets can make an outfit way more interesting compared to head-to-toe high street gear that everyone and their mum has seen before. So raid those charity shops...

How did you discover Polyvore?

Through The Fashion Spot forums, which I visit pretty often too.

Tell us a little about what you use Polyvore for and why. What do you like about Polyvore?

It's a great way to be creative and I actually find it very therapeutic. I can express myself through the sets I create and getting comments or "likes" is the icing on the cake- to know someone has been inspired or can identify with the sets I make is a great feeling! I've also discovered a lot of awesome online stores through using Polyvore.

If you could share one tip or trick with a new Polyvore member, what would it be?

Find a layout that suits you and stick to it- I tried out a few layouts before I stuck to one. It makes it a hell of a lot easier when you know how you're putting everything together on the page. Also, tumblr is a great site to find inspiration or pictures to add to your sets.

Do you have a favorite fashion designer or style icon who has influenced you?

The Olsen twins have inspired my personal style for the last 5 years, but I think my influence right now is less specific. More British and grimy.

What online stores do you like to clip from?

The stores I search first are, more often than not,,, and For general pictures I use TheFashionSpot, tumblr and Livejournal.

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

What's your favorite set created by another Polyvore member?

One of many awesome sets by lovemejessy. It's a cluttered mix of colours and textures, with a hippie-stroke-urban-stroke-military influence. Genius.

We interviewed panda girl last and she wants to know what your biggest goal in life is.

The general aim for my future is to be happy in whatever career I choose but to always have time for other hobbies and activities I enjoy. I don't have a life goal - I set myself new goals constantly- once I've ticked one off I move on to the next. Life is about improving, learning, and growing, 24/7.

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?
