Fluorescent accessories

Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day.
My name is Veronica, I am 30 years old and I consider myself a freelance artist. Most of the time, I like to wear effortless, chic outfits with a splash of color. Color is like a must-have accessory

Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Reading PA, a small town, where people tend to dress as comfortably as they can. Since it's close to New York, trends spread easily here. I see a lot of passion for floral prints, maxi dresses and neon colors.

What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
I have many designers that I admire as well as brands. I will start the list with Chloe (beautiful, wearable pieces with clean minimalist lines and a charming palette of color). I will continue with Celine where all the pieces have a luxurious finish and a very simple design. Celine's handbag line is just pure perfection.  I also love Jil Sander, Stella McCartney, Jason Wu and Marni; they are all a real inspiration. Brand wise, I'm into J. Crew, Zara, H&M, Gap, Sisley and Diesel. They all adapt the trends at affordable prices and they always give great discounts.

Which celebrity has great style? What do you like about their style?
Diane Kruger is so feminine, never over the top and always effortlessly chic. She is a beautiful inspiration!

What are your personal aspirations/goals?
For professional goals, one day, I would like to own a jewelry line . My husband and I like to create all kinds of accessories. Sometimes, we also make clothing pieces. My aspiration in life is to be able to create without restriction. However, these are my hobbies. The most important thing for me is family. I truly aspire to a simple but wonderful life that allows me to enjoy every single day in its simple beauty. I hope to add to this wonderful life with the blessing of a child in a few years.

How has Polyvore affected your life?
I discovered Polyvore almost 4 years ago and for me it was constantly a place where I could create and relax at the same time. I met a wonderful community and made friends worldwide. I must say that all this had a big influence in my decision to start my blog, Bittersweet Colours.
Polyvore is an endless inspiration where I've discovered new designers and trends. I highly appreciate the incredible prizes that I've won all these years. Yes, it has affected my life in many ways, all positive, but mostly, inspirational.

How would you describe your set style?
My set style is for sure colorful. Since I started my blog, I always recreate my own outfits with pieces that I would like to own, or I offer an affordable version of styling. 

How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
I am constantly signing on, both on my computer and my phone! On my phone, I check my activity and messages; and on my computer, I start with creating a set of posts for the next day and I finish with checking my contacts' sets.

What is your favorite Polyvore feature?
The creator page is simply THE BEST !

Describe your personal sense of style
I describe my personal sense of style as "Triple C"- comfortable, colorful and chic, with a minimalist vibe. I have a deep love for mixing prints and textures, as well as combining modern with vintage, but I always focus on colors. This is the main thing that I think of when I dress up: the color combination that I want to wear that day. I finish my looks with an accessory, either made by me or bought, and a pair of sunglasses. Then, I'm good to go!
