Shopping With Polyvore

Sunday night I decided to watch some television and just relax. I ended up at a site called Polyvore that lets you sift through the world of fashion and add items to your collection. Such fun! I found shoes, shirts, dresses, jewelry, and bags that I never could afford without giving up a year of chocolate, and yet I didn’t spend a dime.

I tried my hand at some home styling, too. Though I couldn’t find a ready supply of items to purchase from their regular list, playing with what they call “sets” allowed me to browse through items and create a living room just for the fun of it. Here’s what I came up with:

Spool Accent Table
$199 – crateandbarrel.com

Clearance home decor | Coldwater Creek
$40 – coldwatercreek.com

Starburst Mirror Joy

I’ve been hunting for a starburst mirror in my budget for months. Months. I know I can’t afford an original or even a pricey high-end copycat.

I can, however, afford this lovely little knock-off from Target:

Be still my beating heart. I can put this in the budget! Since June I’ve wanted to put a gold starburst mirror above this fireplace, and now, it is within my reach. Hallelujah! Maybe next month it will reside there.

psst – if gold isn’t your thing, I found a similar (but not identical) silver one for around the same price at T.J.Maxx’s HomeGoods store in Franklin, TN.
