The New York Times had an article today about Polyvore.com which looks kind of neat. (NAYY)

NYT Article about Polyvore.com

Polyvore site

The site allows you to "collect" images from across the web to put together a collage. I don't know if it would work for fabrics and patterns, but it does a pretty good job of displaying trends and their blogs look pretty good.

Another web-based time sink? I'm one for whom fashion has always been kind of mysterious and I think it looks like it might be a good reference, if nothing else.

It's definitely a time suck. I'd been there before, but the Times article reminded me. It is interesting to do a search for different styles and lines and see what comes up. I wonder what happens to the images once the items are sold. On some sites I copy the image for reference. Couldn't figure out how to do that on Polyvore.

Funny I just happened to check this thread today and already have a tab in my browser open to Polyvore! I've been using it for inspiration, making collages of, say, details I like, or color combinations, or fabrics, etc, that I might be able to incorporate into my sewing.

What I do to save the collages, rather than registering and so forth, is to simply take a screen shot. You might try that, rather than copying the image. (I'm on a Mac, so I have no idea how to do a screen shot on a PC, but it must be something simple, too).
