Fattyvore Fridays?

Hi lovelies,

So I have recently (and new-to-me) become obsessed with Polyvore. I was on Fattyvore LJ community for a while when it was around but didn't contribute because I didn't really understand how it worked/or how to search/import your own items. I'm still a little wobbly but am learning the ropes and wanted to suggest doing Fattyvore Fridays over here.

I'd love to see more action in this community and I think this would be a fun way to get reacquainted/enjoy some visual and creative stimulation without necessarily having to post pics of ourselves, etc. What do you think?

Since Fattyvore closed we can't go view all the pretties that were in there so you could of course post some of your old faves. Maybe individual posts (like sales posts, etc) for each contribution but we could use this comments section for questions and answers about how it works?

I will definitely put up a post upon my return from work tonight. For now just throwin' the idea out there!

If you don't know how it works basically www.polyvore.com is a site where you can make visual sets. It's generally skinny and fashiony but can be used for interior design, garden plotting, collage making, etc. including fat purposes (bwah hah hah!) with a bit of creativity and resourcefulness.

More info on how to use polyvore in general here: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/help
Drag the clipper into your bookmarks menu so you can crop images from your favourite online plus size stores: http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/clipper

Happy arranging!


i just started using polyvore again after like 2 years of forgetting i had an account. oops! i would love to try this, maybe i will this afternoon. yeah, i usually just make outfits from tiny clothes that would never fit me....but using the cropper thing should make it much less disheartening!
I'd love to see one from you! The cropper does help a lot for sure. It still takes a bit of time and persistence of course.. I want to be able to upload my own photos so I can mix and match with stuff from my closet, too.
good idea!
thank much! I'd love to see your fatshions. :)
I was the fattyvore mod and I closed it down because it was dead after a year of inactivity. I love the idea of reviving it in smaller form for fattyvore fridays here.
Fattyvore was awesome. I didn't know you modded! Shoulda guessed it. ;)
I shall love to be seeing your things in here.
Splendid idea! It's a nice distraction and it is pretty inspiring when other fatties you know are doing it. I'm in!
Marvelous. :)
And yes, totally inspiring and also distracting! I forgot to go to bed.
Just wanted to add that it took me a long time to figure out how to actually put this on lj. So when you are in your polyvore profile you click on the set you want to view and at the side there will be a little menu that says "embed to blog". Click it and copy and paste!
