so I recently discovered a site called Polyvore - it has a ton of clothing, shoes, accessories, decorations... everything. and it also has places to create collage-type images of all the items you like. that's what those two pictures above are - i pulled a bunch of items that i loved... super addicting. almost as addicting as roller-coaster tycoon (which, as it turns out, i have a hankerin' to play... so that's what i'm going to do in a few minutes!)
Polyvore isn't just a place to make designs - you can find amazing things and buy them too... LIKE THIS UMBRELLA.
(my new favorite thing, ever.) i had to call a few warehouses in London and NYC to track it down because it was sold out on so many sites... but i eventually got it (for a whopping $60, ugh, but WORTH IT!) this particular umbrella is sold out, but you can check out this designer's other umbrellas at LuLu Guinness!
