Easily Distracted

So…I was recently introduced to Polyvore. And immediately, hours and hours of what was previously perfectly productive time was lost into the abyss of fashion collages. So now I’m sharing the link with you guys, in a sadistic ploy to drag you all down with me!

I’ve barely had a taste of what the site allows you to do, but believe me, it’s already quite addictive. You can put together collages with thousands of pre-clipped fashion and design images, or you can nab your own images from anywhere (except Etsy, oddly. But flickr works fine.) The super-cool thing is that the images remain linked back to their original source and clickable, even after you “publish” your finished work.

I almost certainly will be playing around with this more, and posting more collages as I get a little better at designing these things (wishing I had more 2-dimensional design experience!). If you want me to include your images in my future masterpieces, feel free to post your flickr link in the comments!
