Just what I need... another thing to waste my time

Well, thanks to Lacey over at Lacey in Love, I have a new obsession. See, Lacey does this thing called Fashion Friday where she "de-funks" different bloggers' fashion. Every week, she comes up with these adorable outfits, complete with accessories - and until recently I had NO idea how she was putting them all together in a cute little collage. Well, I finally clicked on one of them (duh- the obvious answer) and it took me to polyvore.com. Holy cow, guys... how much fun! You can browse pages and pages of pants, tops, dresses, rings, bracelets... pretty much anything your little heart desires. Then you just drag and drop them into a a little box and arrange until you're happy with the way it looks.

Here are a couple of examples of the fun I had yesterday:

This one is for work. Note the iPod and coffee that is needed to get me through my day.

And this one:

Lazy day

Well, this one is the perfect lazy day set up. PJs, books and my favorite candy...

Y'all, I'm addicted. The coolest part is it breaks it down item by item, telling you how much each thing costs and the Web site you can go to if you want to buy it.

Genius.

Okay... just one more and I'll leave you alone so you can go play!! This is just a casual weekend -sitting around, strumming my guitar (that I still can't play...)

Heather, this is cool! I have to try this out. At least, I can get a new look "virtually".

I was always wondering how people put those cute idea board things together! Thanks for sharing.

Lacey said...

I refuse to take any part in these shenanigans... because if I do I will never leave my computer. :-)

Oh, Wow! That looks so much FUN!!! I say if you're going to have an obsession, it might as well be a really COOL obsession!

Oh I LOVE Polyvore. It's the perfect way to waste time. :)

Trudy said...

That does look like a lot of fun and I love what you put together! I think I'll have to wait until another day to go play for myself though...laundry is calling!

Have a great weekend Heather!

Kitten said...

Oooohhhh...I've got to try this! Thanks for the tip, Heather!

P.S. I love your new layout! :) (And if it's older than I think, I apologize...it's been a while since I've blog-hopped!)

OMG...I do that too, pick "guitar outfits" It hasn't made me any better, either.

Trudy said...

Hey Heather...me again, stop by my blog to collect something that's waiting just for you there!

Jenners said...

OK...this just looks way too dangerous for me to play with. Just way too dangerous.

And I love the new blog look!!! I go away for a week and you fancy up the place! Super cute ... goes with all your cute virtual clothes!
