I’m not a fashion blogger–and I’m certainly not fashionable–but I do like to play and create stuff. I finally checked out Polyvore just so I could add some make-believe to my day. (I miss my camera.) It suddenly occurred to me that I can use this to dress a character from time to time. Would these descriptions ever make it into fiction? Who knows. But a writer always knows tons more about a character than she shares with readers.
Here’s my first Polyvore board, called “Coffee Date.” I made it without even looking at price tags, and that’s how I ended up with a chick in an eight dollar pair of hipster sunglasses and a $228 pair of distressed jeans. Back to the drawing board. =)
