Did you know that Polyvore has an "Ask" section where you can submit your burning wardrobe questions for style community assistance? Since I've had the habit of What-Not-To-Wearing my (betimes unwilling) peeps since childhood, I was thrilled to find another venue where I can put my skills to use between styling gigs. Isn't the game of pretend dress-up with trending designer duds just intoxicating??? Here's an example of what yours truly has been up to on Polyvore:
A. @whatshersecret: Hey there, @Danielle2012! First, I love the boots! Since you've already got a pretty edgy combo with the maxi and the combat boots, I think that it's important to keep in mind that balance is the key to creating the perfect look. You have edgy, now you need soft/feminine. Enter the pretty lace Anna Sui blouse. You also want to be warm and casual/comfy for school. The Etro striped cardi not only perfectly marries edgy with casual, it'll keep you snuggly warm and it beautifully creates a cohesive color story with the brown boots and the black skirt. Finish with a minimalist go-with-anything satchel in oxblood for a bit of punch (and trendiness!).
