Last week I got a lovely note from gorgeous blogger Jasmine from Red Lipstick Stains.

Hi Kimberly,

I’ll be attending my Year 10 formal in August and need some beauty and fashion ideas from an expert! 😉

Polyvore is basically that but taken online and far more interactive.

Instead of just having a collage of useless images of items that you have to hunt down, each image is linked to the relevant online store that you can buy it from. Far more intelligent than the old magazine clipping technique.
