Introducing Popbasic x Polyvore

If there's one thing I frequently feel is missing from my wardrobe, it's basics. Perhaps the perpetual problem for an avid thrift shopper, funds that could be spent on a nice foundation are often put towards statement-making vintage. 

Here's where Popbasic comes in: Popbasic is a monthly fashion subscription service that aims to build your basics while following the trends. Each month a micro collection is released, which includes one basic item- like a good quality white cotton tee- and two on-trend items. If you decide to opt in to buy the parcel- priced between $50 to $100- Popbasic will send you a beauty or lifestyle surprise along with the three-piece collection. Or if you prefer to not be locked into the service, you can buy pieces individually!

And here's where you come in: Included in their monthly parcels, Popbasic will also be sending out their magazine- Stylist- to subscribers. Popbasic will be publishing Polyvore sets created by their community to showcase all the different ways their basics can be styled, and we want to see your interpretations! 

Want to be included? Simply create a Polyvore set using a piece from the Popbasic micro collection and leave a link in the comments section here. I'll be partnering with Popbasic to choose three boards to be published in an upcoming issue of Stylist Magazine! Have fun!

Tiny print: Ends Monday January 14th at 10pm. One entry per person. Winners will be chosen by myself and a representative from Popbasic. Winner will have a 48 hour grace period to respond to email notification before a replacement winner will be chosen.  Be sure to leave an email address in your comment if you do not have a blog where I can EASILY reach you. The winner will be chosen in a timely manner, and notified, but I reserve the right as proprietor of this blog to announce the winner when I see fit.

interested concept... i definitely have the same problem as you. i'm a statement piece kind of gal and am always forgetting to keep up my basics.

oh wow, this is a very cool idea! i recently realized that i essentially own no basics, so i have been trying to remedy that. i feel like i will like my clothes more once i actually have pieces to wear them with!

This is my submission. I completely fell in love with the pastel chain necklace, it's so versatile and elegant.

I've never used Polyvore before...I see many hours of my future disappearing into the Polyvore abyss.

Well, this looks like an awesome form of procrastination - I'll give this a go! :)
