Thank You to all of you beautiful people by lidia-solymosi featuring beauty products

Tell us your name, age, profession and anything you’d like to share: 
My name is Lidia. I am 48 years old. Currently, I am working with people with mental illness in social services. I graduated as a Registered Practical Nurse and worked in a hospital for years. I also graduated with a degree in fashion design and informatica. 

Where do you live, and what trends are big there?
I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Wearing black is big here, mostly because the city is a "business" city--oil. I see people wearing leather pieces and lots of lace. 

What is your favorite brand/designer? What do like about that brand?
I grew up with Gucci, so the brand is my number one favorite. Also I am a big fan of Lanvin, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. I love H&M and Zara too. They are always up-to-date with the most recent fashion. I love classy and chic pieces that are easy to combine in my everyday wardrobe.

Which celebrity has great style? What do you like about their style?
I adore Kate Moss. Her style is flawless. She does classic pieces to make an up-to-date look. Also love Jennifer Aniston's style. Very simple and always fabulous. 

What are your personal aspirations/goals?
To be happy and healthy. I love fashion and I really want to work in the industry. I cannot complain. I've reached many goals, but still want to grow. 

How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore changed my life. Having access to so many forms of fashion and art at the click of a button is incredible. I can feed my hunger for fashion and art and I can express myself. I've also met so many incredible and talented people. 

How would you describe your set style?
I love to experiment with different styles. I love to mix patterns and use bold colors. I also love the minimal looks too. 

How often do you sign on and what is the first thing you do when you sign on?
I am on Polyvore everyday. Kinda addicted. I like to check my daily activities and then my mail box. I also love to see my polyfriends' creations. Finally, I browse brands to see their top stories. 

What is your favorite Polyvore feature?
I love the editor and clipper for sure. Also the comment section below each set or collection is awesome. The Polyvore team has done an amazing job since I started creating sets here. 

Describe your personal sense of style. 
My style is very simple. Love high heels, tailored jackets and skinny jeans. I like very minimalist style, but also love to wear bold colors and yes, love shoes with attitude. I'm crazy for bags. 

Got any request for Polyvore team?
I was fortunate to meet the Polyvore team in New York and I have got to say that you guys are on top of your game. You're always coming up with new ideas and features. All I have to say is just a big thank you for being amazing. 

Anything else you would like us to know?
About me not really. But want to thank you for your hard work, innovation, and creativity. Thank you also for taking an interest in me and getting to know me better.
