Hello Polyvore

Since Fashmatch will be closing site, fellow-Fashmatchers created some groups (Fabulous Fashmatchers and Fashmatch Group) in Polyvore, another fashion macthing/collage site. I tried dabbling into the stuffs there and here's my very first Polyvore creation (please bear with it, it's not too impressive, I think):

Farewell to Fashmatch

Just recently Fashmatch announced that the site will be closing down because the ones running it are "unable to financially sustain the operation of the site". This was very devastating for me and for a lot of fellow Fashmatchers all over the world. :(

You see my job is stressful, takes a lot of my time and most of the time keeps me away from home, family and friends. When I discovered Fashmatch it sort of became an outlet for me, a de-stresses as I usually tell my bestfriend, who by the way also agreed with me when I got her hooked to the site. When I am tired or stressed or bored or in a bad mood, I would go to the site and get totally absorbed until I feel better. I don't consider myself a "fashionista", in fact I think I am too simple to be one. You would normally see me in casual clothing, shirt and jeans or shorts, not too dressy. But I do love shopping, even though I usually don't get to wear everything that I buy. Anyway, with Fashmatch, I can be imaginative and creative and make all sorts of fashionable outfits which in real life I would not even get to wear, nor dare to wear. But I find it as a good outlet to express my creative side and like I mentioned, to de-stress.

And not only that, through the site I got to know (though not personally) other girls from other parts of the world who are into the same thing. Though we did not talk about personal stuff, somehow there's a bond or a connection through our matches. We had fun with the great and challenging contests that everyone came up with, fashion ideas were shared thru our matches, comments and ratings gave us confidence and pride in our work and helped improve our creativity and style.

Though I'd hate to say goodbye... to Fashmatch, thank you for a great and fun site, I wish you'd stay longer because you will be greatly missed... to fellow Fashmatchers, thank you for your great matches, the fun contests, the comments/ratings and most of all for helping make Fashmatch a wonderful site just by being a part of it.

I dedicate these outfits for the farewell for Fashmatch...
