Forbidden Fruit



So Modcloth approached me and asked if I would like to take part in what they call their Polyvore Outfit Challenge.  The uber giant blogger's favourite brand had noticed my little blog, cool!  The brief was to take this dress and style it from a combination of no more than seven items from the Modcloth site.

I have had a Polyvore account for years but haven't used it in almost as many so I thought I'd give it a go.  Little did I realise that every time I created or edited a set it was now being automatically pubished as a blog post.  Doh!  I apologise for all the dead links that have appeared on your dashboards.  I am clearly not social media savvy.

The other obvious drawback is that while searching through all the wares on offer on the site you are presented with an overload of droolworthy items you can only ever dream of owning.  Especially now that they're doing plus sizes, hells yeah!  So here I am passing on the envy and wardrobe dissatisfaction,... yeh, er, sorry about that folks.

I had fun though.  Hope you like my little rainbow ensemble.  Those tights may just have to become mine.  They reminded me straightaway of this advert which for some reason absolutely fascinated me as a child




Anyone else remember these?

Ah well, happy weekend

  3. I don't remember that 80s commercial at all...and I'm such a sucker for all the old commercials in the 80s. Reminds me of childhood! Perhaps that aired only over in the UK? Absolutely loving this Polyvore...it's me to a T and I just wish I could buy everything on it, hehe.

  4. I love those tights, they totally remind me of a jester! I've always thought Court Jesters were very interesting for some reason? I guess I just love all that knights and castles stuff x
