Sites are starting to jump on the polyvore band wagon. You can now create sets on shopstyle. While Polyvore is a site that is completely dedicated to looks, shopstyle is using it as an add on element to their site. I am a polyvore addict and I love making sets so I was really excited to see that another site was trying to adopt this formula of putting together looks.
I use polyvore a lot for fun, class, and for this blog. The sets are polished and professional. I like the user friendly quality to the site. You can pick a category and choose your looks and create your set as you go. If you want you can add backgrounds and spice up your set. Polyvore is a site that has you publish your sets and show them to a community of people that are also creating sets. I like this because it makes it so easy to get inspired by other people and what they are creating. It keeps that personal and "street" element of the things present.
Shopstyle is new to the sets game and I am sure that they are still working out the kinks of the the creating looks part of the site. On shopstyle I found the selecting of looks a bit difficult. You have to add them to your favorites and then with the items in your favorites you can then create sets. While it was annoying to have to select items for your favorites, it is good to be able to keep a data base of the items you like. I still felt like it took forever having to select looks and then go to a different page to create your set. I feel like it would be more efficient to have these things on the same page side by side. I am not sure if you can add backgrounds, but the looks were simple and not as crazy and creative as polyvore.
I feel like shopstyle is doing a good job at adding a new element to their site. They are expanding and keeping their site fresh and up to date in fashion. I can't wait until they iorn out the kinks. I still suggest checking it out and seeing what's new!
