ghoul next door.


ghoul next door has added (with my permission) some bloodmilk into her polyvore collages. i'm really interested in the way she composes outfits around antique art & dark themes. polyvore reminds me a bit of this toy 'fashion plates' i had when i was a kid & a more intense version of window shopping. i know there's a bit of controversy over the site, but it inspires me & helps me get over my retail lust a bit.

I love Polyvore- I've heard controversy over and over about it but really, in the whole time I've used it I've never found anything that doesn't have a direct credit source to it. I've discovered so many great designers this way too. I don't see anything wrong with it.

Oh yes! I had the fashion plates too :) And I do find that it quells part of the urge to shop...unfortunately, it turns out that I have very expensive tastes and I couldn't afford anything I fall in love with, anyhow.

Although, I have found a few wonderful niche shops through polyvore...and just like any other online community, like attracts like - and so I have met some wonderful ladies through there as well.

So, yes, you would probably become a bit addicted, but I think you'd be glad you did!

Thanks again for allowing me to work with your things...I've got a few more ideas, as well!

These layouts are absolutely dazzling and show off the creative genius of both of your minds combined.
