Dress-A-Friend Fanatic!

Every Friday, Polyvore holds a Dress-A-Friend 24 Hour Contest. You can submit up to 3 entries, choose a friend, make a set for them, e-mail it to them. Every week there is one winner. I hadn't really been paying much attention to the official Polyvore contests until recently, when I decided to try entering a few, and the Dress-A-Friend contests are my favorite. They are great because you can choose any style, any theme, and any friend. I have made them for my room mate, my sisters, my friends, and lots of others. The first official contest I ever won was a Dress-A-Friend Friday, and so was the second. Call me hooked. Here are a selection of my very favorite friendly make-over sets!

Now if I could just have all of that in my closet I could die happy! Can't wait till next Friday, can you? Thanks Polyvore!

For The Love Of Kate Spade

I have adored Kate Spade products ever since I can remember, but certainly after seeing her first appearance on the Oprah show way back when. I love coluorful accessories, and boast my own bag collection at over 50 (just ask my mother who helped me move). I admire mixing and matching bold colours and prints, classic shapes and designs, and touches of whimsy that are irresistible.

Polyvore is celebrating the wonderful designs of Kate Spade this month, and I threw together a few sets inspired by some of her catch phrases. The more I looked at the website, and the items, the more in jeopardy my VISA card was becoming. Thank goodness I can play virtual dress-up online. Here are my Kate inspired sets!

The New British Invasion: Debenhams

I have to admit, I have a crush on all things British, and it has nothing at all to do with the accent. (Well not much anyways.) Fashionally speaking, I love things from across the pond, the designers seem to have more cheek, they have some classics that we simply can't touch, and the new up and coming designers are total rock stars!

When Debenhams announced they would begin shipping internationally, they did it with a contest of course, and I had a blast discovering some of the amazing designers that are housed by the Debenhams name. Some are new to me, others, like Ben de Lisi are particular favorites from reality television shows like Project Catwalk. Here are my Debenhams sets, and I can't wait till they start shipping to Canada!

Let The Invasion Begin! Welcome Debenhams!
