Tell us your name, age, profession and what you typically wear every day
Hi, my name is Iva, and I'm 26 years old. I've just finished university, and I'm trying to find a nice job in public relations, fashion or design: something interesting and creative. I have a lot of creativity and can't imagine my life without it. My everyday style is simple, minimalistic, usually black or white clothes with colored shoes and bags, and some cool statement necklace or ring.

Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Croatia. In the last year, people have really started to play with fashion here, more than ever. You can find very nicely dressed people in the street, but also there are still so many people without any sense of style. This spring/summer floral prints are so popular, as are asymmetric skirts and dresses. Statement necklaces, simple clutches in all colors and rings are big too.

What is your favorite brand/designer?
I'm a huge huge fan of bags, and my favorite designers are always designers with perfect bags, like Proenza Schouler, Celine. I crave them. Would like to have them in all colors, every model!

Which celebrity has great style?
I don't have just one fashion icon. Love to follow all the street style as well as some fashion blogs, they are a big inspiration.

What are your personal aspirations/goals?
To find a creative job, to learn some new language, maybe Spanish or French. I'd like to travel more, to spend more time with my friends. 

How has Polyvore affected your life?
It's a place where I can have all the clothes that I've always wanted to have. But it's also a place where I meet wonderful girls. Such good friends, they are my inspiration here, and their beautiful words mean so much to me. I'm always happy when I see that someone really looked at my set, imagining how it looks on the real person.

How would you describe your set style?
My sets are really simple, something like my own style, just more expensive. Basic items, cool accessories. The focus is always on accessories, some cool shoes and bags, and for the final touch, some nail polish and a piece of jewelry. Usually it's a ring or statement necklace. I'm so in love with them.

How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
Daily.When I'm on the internet, I always check what is new here, what my friends created, what is new with my sets. Sometimes I have so much inspiration that I create several sets, save them in drafts and publish them in days when I don't have any inspiration. Because of that, I have new sets almost every day.

What is your favorite Polyvore feature?
Everything is great. I like the crop option, sometimes I can create my own item from something else.
