Member Spotlight: rey-ray

Meet rey-ray, a Visual Merchandising student hailing from New York City. He's been a Polyvore member for three years and continues to wow us with his sharp eye for styling womenswear. Check out some of the outfits he's put together in his sets:

Shake It Off

Tell us about yourself.

I'm Ray from NYC and I'm 21 years old. I'm currently a full-time Visual Merchandising student at LIM College and a freelance fashion assistant. I enjoy painting and taking trips to the great museums New York City has to offer.

What are your personal aspirations?

I'm a passionate and creative person. I see myself dipping my toes into many waters.

How has Polyvore affected your life?

I interned for ELLE magazine for nine months and many of the accessories I worked with I had first seen on Polyvore. It came in handy because I already had the knowledge of what was what.

Polyvore's also enhanced the way I put pieces together in the real world, and I recognize certain labels due to Polyvore.

Describe your personal sense of style.

My style is filled with your basic classic pieces. I wear the same three pairs of jeans every week and the same tees and shirts. Let's just say there's a lot of laundry going around in my house.

What are some of your favorite brands?

For the hipster in me: Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Phillip Lim. For the classic, perfectly tailored pieces: Celine, Calvin Klein, and Chloe. For things I can actually afford: anything in a thrift store.

Got any feature requests for the Polyvore team?

I think Polyvore has created easy ways for us members to use it. Keep up the good work! :-)
