Tell us about yourself.
I'm 31 from Juarez, on the border of the US and Mexico. I'm a college student, housewife, and mother of two adorable boys! I'm married to a great man who supports me in pursuing my fashion dreams. I love art and used to paint and make sculptures. Doing art would feed my creative side, and now with Polyvore I feel even more fulfilled since fashion has always been a part of me. I'm addicted to making sets, discovering the latest trends, making great friends, and getting to see wonderful sets.
What are your personal aspirations?
I have a great family and that's my number one priority. But I also have fashion dreams that I want to pursue. I just started my own blog, VJuliet, which has been on my to-do list since I discovered Polyvore. I'd love to be a stylist or start my own fashion business.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore has changed my life and brought me back to my dreams. When I was 20, I was very lucky to study abroad in Florence, Italy, where I studied the History of Art and wanted to become a fashion designer. Love brought me back to America, but I was missing the fashion I love so much, until I discovered Polyvore. Making sets and discovering so many beautiful fashion items and people who understand my passion for fashion has made me aware of my dreams again. This time, I'm going to pursue them!
Describe your personal sense of style.
My style is kind of casual chic. I follow trends but I know when one is not for me. I prefer to choose items that fit me well and compliment my style.
What are some of your favorite brands?
Alexander Wang, Rebecca Minkoff, Burberry, H&M, D&G, Moschino, Zara, and Mango.
Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?
I would love to have a better way to find the items I've saved, by color or just to type what I'm looking for. I have so many items and it's hard to find things! Also, it would be great if I could organize my contacts and select my favorites to watch. Many times I miss some wonderful sets with so many people to watch.
