Interview with StreetWhit

Today's interview is with StreetWhit, who's been styling up a storm on Polyvore for the last 4 months! Since she's been a member, her sets and contest entries have been blowing us away. Most recently she placed in Kate Betts' style influencer challenge.

Here are some of her sets:

Tell us about yourself.

My name is Whitney and I'm 23 years old. I'm currently searching for a job in the fashion industry!

What are your personal aspirations?

I would love to work in fashion someday, whether it's design or merchandising. I enjoy everything about it and I believe that it would be a great fit for my lifestyle! I think that being a buyer or a visual merchandiser would be a great career.

How has Polyvore affected your life?

I looked forward to being on Polyvore every day. It has really become a creative outlet in my life. Whether I'm stressed or I just want to express myself in a certain way, I rely on Polyvore. And when I say that I am addicted, I'M ADDICTED! It's actually made me want to do something with fashion graphic design (thanks Polyvore team!) I also love the way Polyvore reaches out to the fashion community and allows us to interact with the fashion obsessed all over the world!

How would you describe your personal style?

Very street, hence the Polyvore name 'StreetWhit'! I always try to walk out of the house with an edgy, chic outfit on. There always has to be some sort of twist to my outfit, whether that means pairing a plain oversized sweatshirt with black skinny jeans, booties, and a diamond necklace or rocking my leather jacket with a babydoll dress and high heels. I love the element of surprise in a street outfit.

What are some of your favorite brands?

Balenciaga, Donna Karan, Proenza Schouler, and Burberry have my heart!

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

For feature requests, I really can't think of anything at the moment because you all have everything a fashionista needs!

When I stumbled upon Polyvore, I could not believe there was such a website that combined everything I love including fashion, art, and music in the most creative way. Since I was little, I’ve been interested in art and fashion. In college, the two subjects were very separate from each other. Yet I was constantly trying to find ways of combining the two. It is because of Polyvore that I am able to express my creative passions so clearly and now I find myself learning more about today’s fashion industry along with my personal sense of style.
