I'm a 60-something wife, mother and grandmother. It's very hard for me to shop for clothing in retail stores because most of them are geared toward teen-to-college-aged kids. I prefer style, not fads and grunge. I'm glad I found Polyvore ... now I can create the wardrobe I would love to have.
I enjoy groups and contests, but really dislike magazine-like layouts in which the clothing is totally lost in the background. I will not join a group that isn't outfit only, and refuse to create an outfit around an outlandish piece of clothing.
I hope some of the sets I create will be good enough to win a few contests, and maybe even a few trophies.
