Tell us about yourself.
Hi! My name is Tabitha. I'm a stay-at-home, work-from-home, single mother of three little boys. By day, I'm a graphic designer and photographer, and I love being creative and sharing my imagination on Polyvore. Outside of work, I sing, enjoy history, reading, and exploring. I love exploring the big city, finding all the hidden gems, or just digging for fossils in the woods.
What are your personal aspirations?
I would love to hike the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I also dream of winning an Academy Award for Costume Design. (That's if my sister's book, Wander Dust, gets made into a movie!) It's nice to dream!
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore has been a wonderful creative outlet from my everyday life. Polyvore offers endless possibilities to style and create! And I've met some lovely friends there too! Polyvore is an amazing community!
Describe your personal sense of style.
Modern simplicity with tones of vintage.
What are some of your favorite brands?
Balmain, Vivienne Westwood, and Galliano for Dior are my favorite designers. I also adore the House of McQueen for their presentation.
Got any requests for the Polyvore team?
Oh, yes! First, I would love to be able to color coordinate 'My items.' Secondly, I think the capability to add items from collections to our own collections without having to open a new window might make life easier. Thirdly, when creating a set in the Polyvore editor, it would be nice to search items from recently liked collections. Lastly, I dream about all the amazing sets I can make by being able to add video clips! (Hint, hint! Wags eyebrows.)
What made you decide to enter the Tell Heidi All About Me contest?
Heidi is a super-fabulous mother and businesswoman. I couldn't wait to enter and have a chance to meet her! She's truly an inspiration to me! In addition, this contest was so much fun. The objects used from Heidi's collection with my own personal artistic touches really reflect who I am.
You get to meet Heidi in NYC this week! How do you feel about this opportunity?
I'm super excited to go to NYC and meet Heidi! Honestly, it still hasn't sunk in yet because the other finalists' sets were so amazing! I really didn't think I would win, but I'm so incredibly grateful that I did. As a single mother, I don't get much time to myself. A trip to New York City, meeting Heidi, and having an uninterrupted shower will be a real treat! Thank you so much, Polyvore!!
Here is the outfit that I plan to wear the day I get to meet Heidi Klum:
