Interview with ℳshotpink♥

Today's interview is with ℳshotpink♥ who has been a member on Polyvore for 3 years. She's won several Polyvore contests, including the Style the Rebecca Minkoff Runway contest! Check out her amazing sets and learn more about this California girl.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

Hi, my name is Amy. I'm from Los Angeles, CA where I was born and raised. I'm a 21-year old chocolate addict who has 5 dogs (yes 5). I'm currently a college student majoring in business marketing and I hope to definitely work in the fashion industry someday.

What's the story behind your Polyvore name?

The name ℳshotpink♥ started my freshman year in high school. One day I wore a very hot pink off-the-shoulder top to school and one of my friends said "Your shirt is hot," and I said "No, it's hot pink. Ms. hot pink." It was kind of like a James Bond joke, so that's where it came from.

How would you describe your sense of style?

I think my sense of style is simple and chic. I love mixing different textures and mixing edgy pieces with feminine pieces. I think my sets reflect my everyday style minus the heels which I don't wear so often. I walk a lot in school so heels would kill my feet.

What's hot in your 'hood?

Well in LA it's pretty warm out and the weather seems to change frequently, so I don't think anyone puts their summer clothes away completely. But I see a lot of girls wearing riding boots and knee high boots right now.

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

I wish people wore more hats like back in the 40s. I think they add a sense of mystery and intrigue.

How did you discover Polyvore?

I discovered Polyvore when I was looking for a picture of some shoes I wanted and the link magically led me to Polyvore and I haven't left since.

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

I use Polyvore as a creative outlet. With school and everything else it's fun to get creative and see the latest shoes or the next "it" bag. I wish I had a real "create" button around all the time.

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

I would just say to be yourself and stay original.

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

Right now I really like Alexander Wang, I think his clothes and bags are simple but so creative and interesting at the same time. As for fashion icons, I love Audrey Hepburn. I think her style was just classic and timeless. Her style is even reflected today with her flats and over-sized sunglasses and of course the little black dress.

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

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

I really like this set! I love the whole layout and I would definitely wear this outfit in a heartbeat!!

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

Not that I can think of. I think Polyvore is AMAZING just the way it is!
