Polyvore HQ Community Meetup

On November 8th, 13 of our community members traveled to the Polyvore headquarters to meet our team! Some ventured from as far away as Austria and Switzerland to join us. We're so happy to have met cb-hulaalbs,  angiemelizabethsaysrelaxflorencia95pensivepeacockmagdafunkbamaannie,  coeurdcoeurs7deuxspunnkygabrielle-pedriani, and emmy in person!

Make an Impact - Polyvore Meetup 2013


The day kicked off with an intimate roundtable breakfast with our community members. This is one of the most treasured moments we have with our members as we get to learn their individual Polyvore stories. After that, we headed to the office for a tour and to hang out with our CEO and Co-Founder Jess. She shared the history of Polyvore and her own personal Polyvore story. (Did you know Jess was a community member before joining the team?)

Our mobile team also gave a demo of the new iPad app and members chimed in with their feedback. Having the meetup at our HQ also provided us the opportunity for to hold a Q&A session with several teams members from product, engineering, sales and editorial.  All ears were on our members as they shared their feature wishlist. And once all the formalities were over, the party really started! We opened up the floor for members to share their tips and tricks, get make-unders by Bare Escentuals and jump in the photobooth or enjoy Polyvore cupcakes.

Would love to attend a Meetup, if not too far to travel. Is it a all expense paid trip? Do you provide transportation? I love Polyvore,and want to learn more about creating more stunning/eyecatching sets. ♥

It's always the same people they try to push/promote. It's so obvious and unfair. They put the same people in top sets and on the home page all the time. There is so much talent on this site!Stop to do this!

Oh yes, it would have been a fabulous opportunity. I am sure everyone who got to go was thrilled.

Really sorry ladies to hijack your meetup blog but if Polyvore has any real interest in the community they must not change the set page layout again. They are making it harder and harder to keep up with our friends sets! Apparently this new look isn't available to everyone yet, Polyvore please put it back to how it was.
