31 Days to a Cuter You! Day 19 "It's Like Playing Paper Dolls"

 Have you heard of Polyvore? You can choose from tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, shoes, bags accessories and jewelry to design your own clothing sets. I have enjoyed "playing" around on it and finally decided it's because it's a lot like one of my favorite girlhood activities ~ playing paper dolls! 

What I plan to do is create an outfit for each of the body types. So check back later for that. Below are 4 outfits I created and, man, do I wish I had them in my closet. 
What do you think? Would you wear any of the 4 I created? Another fun thing for me is thinking of a title for each set of clothing. Yeah...sometimes it's the small, creative things in a day that make me smile.

  1. Oh how fun...it is like me designing interior decor for houses, which I did years ago. I love the middle one the best, but all are great! The first one reminds me of me years ago when my first four were small. Thanks...enjoying and getting inspired.

  2. Oh my!!! How fun...I think I could get highly addicted to that site...haha. I had never heard of it! That is going to be a useful tool for my blog. :D yay!

  3. Fun! The middle one is my favorite also, although I could only afford the ring. haha.

    Mariah, this would be great for your site!

  4. Melanie~ I can not wait to get back to your blog and soak in all of this wisdom you are sharing! I've saved every post and next week, I'm taking my computer to my front porch, with some coffee, and will read every word! (pictures don't come thorugh on my phone, so I'm missing the good stuff!) You've put so much work into these, and I'm looking forward to relaxing and spending some time here very soon. (I'm heading out of town today or I'd do it right now... but of course - true to me, I'm running late already and its only 8ish in the morning!) ;-)

    Much love and praying so often for you, my friend~

    (PS: I'm looking forward to hearing how your weekend speaking went)

  5. I love this! I need to bookmark this site and spend some more time there. And can I just say that the last dress would look SOOOO good on me? If I only had about $600 to spend on a dress. Wow!

  6. I need that middle "Buttercup Blues" outfit. Need, I tell you.

  7. Ha!!!! I just looked at the prices. Hahahahahahahahah!!! OK, maybe "need" was a strong word. I wonder if Target sells versions of any of those.
