hi guys! Today I’m going to be talking about this awesome fashion/beauty/home decor/art app that is now my favourite app. I’ve become abit obssessed with it !! 💙❤️💚💜
So what is it ??
Its official description is its a community powered social commerce site !! In plain language it a global style community on a free app that helps you shop and style using the latest fashion trends.
It is a really fun app to use and u can create cool outfits, room decor styling etc.
Some of you might have already been using this for awhile, the app is used by millions of users worldwide so what I am going to do is a step by step instruction post for those who havent.
Download the polyvore app
When u go into the app it will look like this:
You can create an account in a number of ways, by facebook, twitter or just a polyvore user account. If u dont want an account then just go onto create a set, will explain what this is in the next few sets.
Create your profile.
Go into the Me section and write your profile. This bit of down to you. This is mine
What the side bar icons mean.
On the ipad the side bar is on the left hand side, on the smart phone, the bottom.
Trends – current trends on the app. Ie most popular.
For example: If a skater skirt was posted and 5,000 people liked it then according to what you have been liking it might end up in your recommened Trends.
Just like facebook or pintrest this is your feed of other sets that people have been posting relating to people you are following or sets/ items u have liked. This enables u discover new people to follow and items to like or buy
So this is the bit where u get to create your own “sets”. So a set means a group of objects u have grouped together for ideas/ fashion statement/ outfits to buy. Its like a mood board but not just for home decor but for fashion.
So how do u do it
Go into create and u will see add item, menu and publish. Firstly go into add item
U will see thumbnails descriptions eg fashion. Make sure u scroll down to see all the other options, its not just fashion.
I am going to create a fashion set so I clicked into tops. U will then see hundreds of tops to choose from.
So I see a top I like, I tap the picture and an enlarged picture wity drescriptions pops up on the side including where to buy it from. It also says add which I click on and this is then added to my empty screen
You then go on in the same way to add other items for your set
Be creative, I like to add quotes, all accesories to my sets like watches, iphone cases, make up and hairstyles.
U can also add text and magazine articles. Its fab as it gives u lots of fonts to work with.
Once you think are finish you press publish
You pick which category u publish your set into. I am choosing beauty
You then name the set.
You can share it on all social media platforms. Pintrest, facebook, instagram and even wordpress!!
Now what makes this app cooler is that u can shop directly through it. U just click on the item u wish to buy and it transfers you to the online shop. Be careful with this as u may be able to get tje items cheaper elsewhere but if u r ok with the prices there is no doubt its a cool and easy way to shop.
The social aspect of this app
With this app users are able to “❤️” your set, follow your account also comment and message. If your aim is to get loads of “followers” then it is recommended you like, comment and follow lots of peoples account.
This is an example of someone I am following , can u see the black outline heart, that is what u click on to show u liked the set.
In your profile page you can keep track of your followers, who u follow, sets, likes etc.
This shows u goals u have achieved, basically the activity on your account
Where all your mail is, enables u to reply from there
I hope this gets u excited to use this really cool app or helps u use it better
Bye Ari 💙💜❤️💚
