It is a well-established fact that I am cheap. Bargain shopping is my meditation.
If I could spend my entire life in sweatpants, a tank top, a hoodie, and slippers, I would. Unfortunately, since I have to leave the house and look presentable every day, that isn’t an option. I can do the next best thing, though, which is fancy up the most basic basics into quite cute little […]
I have been a life-long member of Team Jeans or GTFO, but I have finally seen the light and embraced yoga pants. What in the world was I thinking all these years??
Dress like you ride a unicorn to work this spring.
Here at Persephone, we believe meme generators are for chumps. No, we believe in creating snappy visual comebacks the old fashioned way, with Polyvore.
Until I started playing around on Polyvore, the infamous time-suck/fashion template website, I had no idea that there were so many things to want. I have never wanted to spend money (that I don’t have) more than when I’m perusing Polyvore. When it comes to me and shopping, the old adage “out of sight, out […]
It’s amazing how a single item in your wardrobe can change the mood, function, and overall style of an outfit. The removal or addition of one thing can turn a look from daytime to nighttime, or serious to whimsical. Of course, what that magic item is can certainly vary, but today I want to take […]
I have never been big on the whole boho-chic style. I usually prefer cleaner, simpler and more classic pieces. All that changed one night when we turned on the Fleetwood Mac music channel on my friend’s television.
I have been fervently watching the Harry Potter movies in preparation for next weekend’s premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. As the anticipation mounts, I see more and more House Pride-type posts all over the more casual blogs I read. With that in mind, I decided to have a little fun […]
A few posts back, the editors were surprised to see themselves the subject of a very fun Polyvore post. This morning, I decided to return the favor. After the cut, I introduce a wardrobe for Selena.
Cartoon hearts and glitter hugs for all of you on this most shiny and chocolate covered holiday. We have 18 posts on deck behind this one ready to keep you entertained and enlightened all day and well into the night (and beyond, with the second shift open thread at 10 p.m. EST).
Meghan is starting a brand-new and exciting job this week, so she’s taken the week away from writing for us. I miss her weekly forays into Polyvore, so like a good editor, I’m picking up the slack. What could be more appropriate than creating stylish outfits for some of my favorite Middlemarch Madness contenders?
Everyone cringes when they see the fashions of their childhood and teen years, right? I *think* it’s a universal thing, but then I realize I am looking at this through the lens of my Generation X self.
Our love of Polyvore at Persephone is well documented. As a fun filler, I made a set for each of the editors. It’s important to note I only know what one of them looks like, so most of this is guessing. As is also well documented, I have no personal style of my own. My […]
Howdy, ladies! (And anonymous male readers. I know you’re reading this. Right now. I can see you through my computer). Well, I was having a hard time thinking of a “theme” (give me suggestions! I can always use suggestions to decrease the stressful process of having to open Polyvore and sigh and be like, “Is […]
