Birthday Reflections from Polyvore

Hey Y'all, 
So.. On like Monday June 30th, I started a small Polyvore contest. If you don't know what Polyvore is.. It's basically a fashion lover's best friend. It gives you a place to plan out your outfits, show your style, and be inspired. I LOVE POLYVORE! Ok so anyways, the contest was to make a classy/preppy outfit for my birthday. I loved seeing what these fabulous ladies came up with. They all have AMAZING style, and I truly admire all of them... Here's where you get to see everyone who entered and all of their sets! Let me know which one y'all like the best, and if you have a polyvore go follow these girlies!

I LOVE this set! I love how Loren included that special gift for me in this set.. I mean.. Come on.. this earrings are to. die. for!

  7. OP is so perfect, definitely a huge style muse in my life. Love the looks you picked.


  8. I had never paid any mind to OP until I saw her wedding outfit...and then I went a little stalker-ish on her (well, her outfits really). I love seeing a celebrity who combines trendy with preppy and never falls short of sheer elegance.


  9. I'm the same exact way haha! I agree.. it's always neat to see someone who can combine so many styles to create her own!
