Schoolgirl Crush (a.k.a. My First Polyvore)

I know, I know. I'm a little behind the times when it comes to this amazing collage maker, but after several failed attempts trying to put together a complete collage, I ended up forgetting about it. With a little inspiration, I decided to try my hand at the program once more. I now realize that the trick is to have a list of items you're looking for and a cohesive theme.

Schoolgirl Crush
Vanessa Bruno blazer : Alexander McQueen glasses : Chloe tank : Lucky Brand bracelet : Burberry parachute pants : OPI "I Pink I Love You" nail polish : Proenza Schouler messenger bag : Christian Louboutin "Freddy" studded brogues

Schoolgirl Crush 2
Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater : Desire skirt : Mulberry "Alexa" bag : OPI "No Room for the Blues" nail polish : Marc Jacobs "Daisy- In the Air" perfume : Topshop ankle socks : Jeffrey Campbell "Class" booties

Both collages were inspired by messenger bags, namely Mulberry's "Alexa" and Phillip Lim's "Tess." I'm a big fan of prim and proper school girl outfits (yep, I never had to wear a uniform), but I think a modern take is more appropriate. Alexa Chung, of course, pulls the look off flawlessly with her own quirky flair.
