Today's OOTD, brought to you by Polyvore

Today is national Wear Red day, the sign in our apartment elevator tells me.  So, I thought I'd wear red.  But then I didn't get a picture of it (yet), so I thought I'd play around with Polyvore to give you all an idea of what I have on today.  Other than my mantle of unbridled scorn, that is.

The items in the set listed on polyvore are not indicative of the real items in the set.  Here are the real items:

Dress: Old Navy 1x
Boots: Target "kady" boots, sold out awhile back, size 11
Cardigan: Target merona xxl
Brooch (not shown):

The polyvore thing seems clunky.  I'll bring you a real OOTD really featuring me shortly!


Here's what I actually looked like:

I think Polyvore makes outfits look a little more curated and interesting. When I see them on, they still look awesome and so do I :), but it just looks like a person wearing clothes rather than the tableau that polyvore creates. Hmmm. I will probably do more of these!

I love Polyvore! I am adding you to mine now! It'd be fun to do a post with polyvore alongside the actual items on you.

That's exactly what I was thinking! I am going to update this post, or do a new one, when I download the pictures of me wearing this outfit off my camera.

Personally, I think polyvore items look a little better than those items in real life. They just look so... curated? I don't know. It's the same reason why buying things off etsy is so satisfying, because artistic pictures of things almost always look better than said items actually incorporated into an outfit.
