Tell us about yourself.
I'm Melissa. I'm 19 years old and I live in Canada. I'm an architecture student at the University of Manitoba. I currently run a local store here part-time that caters to the male population. I'm really interested in product design at the moment, but I've always had an eye for designing clothes, furniture, and all.
What are your personal aspirations?
I'm really hoping to pursue my career in the faculty of architecture and product design.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
I've been using Polyvore for over 2 years now and it's changed how I look at clothing. I've been exposed to more brands, designers, and online shops. Whenever I save an item I feel like I've gone shopping. I have so many items clipped and saved and I love going through them and using them all. It's also changed my life in the sense that I spend most of my online time on here making sets.
Describe your personal sense of style.
I would have to say I'm a minimalist. I wear a lot of plain fabrics and dark colors. I also wear a lot of shift dresses.
What are some of your favorite brands?
Dieppa Restrepo, Slow & Steady Wins the Race, ACNE, Margiela, and Wilfred from Aritzia.
Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?
I really have none for you guys. I love the activity analytics you share with us now. It's always been easy to use and follow. If there is any way I can be more involved online I would love to know.
