Polyvore and Cover Girl: Polyvore Live
Two big names in the fashion / beauty world — Polyvore, an online fashion community, and CoverGirl Cosmetics — have come together to create a fashion show at this year’s Mercedez Bens Fashion Week.
The February 13 show takes place at La. Venue and will feature prominent fashion bloggers as the models. As for what the Polyvore Live models will be wearing, get ready for some emerging — and very talented — designers. Four FIT alumni who submitted their designs to the Polyvore community have been chosen and they include: Dana-Maxx Pomerantz, Luaren Balgiore, Sergio Guadarrama and Vengsarkar “Ven” Budhu.
For those unable to go to Fashion Week, watch the models strut their stuff in real time on the Polyvore Live catwalk at Polyvore.com.

Here’s a commandment any fashion-forward femme can get behind: Thou shalt covet thy stylish neighbor’s closet. Thanks to Closet Groupie, a website launched late in 2011, that should now be an easy thing to do. The website is essentially a buying/selling platform with a focus on high fashion duds and accessories. Women can sell their gently used, vintage — or even new — garments and accessories for others to buy. And, of course, they can buy other womens’ items, as well.
“Some of the best clothes in the world are hanging in your closets, not in stores,” says the website. “Closet Groupie is going to change the way we live by letting us shop in closets we love, and sell what’s in our closets to people who love our style.”

Love trying samples before you invest in the full size product? Meet Sample Society, a beauty sampling program brought to you by two beauty household names: Beauty Bar and Allure Magazine.

Members also receive a special code for $15 off any $50 purchase on their Beauty Bar website.
