Minnie Mouse Bling

So here is the companion outfit I made to the Mickey outfit from earlier. I went with a classic style for the Mickey outfit and decided to dress up the Minnie outfit with a little bling. The gold bow on the top was my inspiration for that. Enjoy!

The Beginning

I discovered the website Polyvore.com about eight months ago and since then I've used it to create 62 outfit inspiration boards. This website is great because it contains every kind of clothing imaginable and allows you to put that clothing along with accessories, shoes, etc., into inspiration boards. Once you publish a set, you can go back to it and see everything about each item such as where it is from and how much it costs. When making sets, you can use different search methods and one of these is to search by price. I try to always select the "under $50" category for each item in my sets because I like them to be things I can actually afford.

I decided to create this blog to share my sets with people and also to challenge myself to spend a little while each day being creative by making a new set. Hopefully some of my sets will also inspire anyone who views this blog. Like I said, I've already created 62 sets so I will be posting those intermittently with my dailies. I'll start things off with a set I made a few days ago in honor of Valentine's Day. Some of the items in the set are listed below the main photo. I hope you enjoy!
