The Greatest People You Will Ever Meet

The Greatest People You Will Ever Meet

So this is the official group. I will leave the other one up as an audition group in the case that we add more members down the road.
 
The icon and name are temporary. We'll decide on the name as a group, kk?
 
Same rules and general info apply as before:
♦ The group should be between 10-15 people. Anything larger than that would probably cause madness.
♦ How it will work:
-I'll make each person a mod, so we can chat through announcements.
-We will also hold tinychats [maybe once a week/month?]
♦ We will help each other by:
-faving and commenting sets
-assisting in model searches [for rps or just general knowledge]
-fashion advice
-gushing over crushes together
-movie/book/music suggestions
-talk about obsessions [i.e.- The Hunger Games, Sherlock, even One Direction.]
-picture clipping
-just providing a listening ear
♦ Hating of any sort is not allowed. Cyber bullying is a no-no.

Coast Is Excellent {CIE}

Coast Is Excellent {CIE}

- a collaborative roleplay group -
 
"Living in a small town, I knew everybody. And everybody knew me."
― Anna Nicole Smith
 

+
 

Welcome to Bar Harbor, Maine.
 
Located in Mount Dear Island, our small quaint town is known for its stunning coastal beauty, its many yachts and lobster boats, and its view of islands and ocean in settings that can range from glistening sunlight to thick fog and mist.
 
It slows our lives down so we may appreciate nature and the relationships with those whom we love even more.
 
This is a community where people live in harmony with the land in which they live.
 
Bar Harbor is a lifestyle, an aspiration, and a very special place to be.

 
+
 

Guidelines:
 
1) This will be a ‘write whenever you can’ group. No pressure on publishing stories. You are welcome to write as often or as little as you can. There are no scheduled events or calendar of activities unless agreed upon by the mods.
 
2-a) Characters – Since this is a small town, everyone should know or be related to each other. This will hopefully eliminate the ‘how did they meet’ story/planning that often slows down and complicates the group.
 
2-b) There will be no age or gender restriction. If you want to be a 16-year old cheerleader, go ahead. Want to be a single mom in her mid-30s? That’s fine too. You want to play an 83-year old cat lady? Mazel tov.
 
2-c) Character occupations – Think small town. Café owner. Baker. Arts and crafts store owner. Innkeeper. Bookstore assistant. Hairstylist. Nurse. Tour guide. B&B manager. Park ranger. Local artist. Local author. Local musician. Fisherperson. Lobsterperson. Big city transplants are also welcome addition to this.
 
3) Location – the town is set in Bar Harbor, ME. However, we will only use a few of its most notable locations. Everything else will be fictionalized and up to our imaginations and creativity.
 
3) Reading and commenting on each others set, while not mandatory, is highly encouraged. Let’s all give a few minutes of our time to appreciate the hard work that members put into their stories.
 
4) Sample story – http://www.polyvore.com/little_miss_rory/set?id=175932519
 
Hopefully, this story will provide you an idea of the look and feel of the town and its characters.
 
5) Keep checking this page for updates on characters and a collection for the town’s look and feel.

CIE is created on September 9, 2015

Street chic is a global cool.

Street chic is a global cool.

What is fashion? It is more than the runway; it's the people who wear them. How many times have you walked past a girl on the street and wished you were in her 4-inch-Louboutin-heels, wearing that stunning Lanvin top and swinging that YSL bag? Or how about the times when you sit in a cafe on the sidewalk, and from the corner of your eye you spot a lady running across the road in a flurry to get to the office, but still looking polished and ever so chic in her Prada pumps and Vera Wang coat?
 
Yes, street chic is an art form. It's about being cutting edge, imaginative, trend-setting, and marrying that with comfort and practicality. It's about wearing that shirt differently from everyone else, or matching that skirt and bag in a way no one could ever think of; not even Lagerfeld or Cavalli. It's about being YOU.
 
Submit sets of your idea of street chic. YOU be the artist, YOU be the judge. Whatever you think defines YOUR own style, YOUR idea of fashion, share it here!
 
Please do not spam/ write hate messages on other people's sets. Just because you don't agree, does not mean you have to publicly hate it. Constructive comments are fine; hate messages aren't. Please also remember this group is solely for fashion sets, and anything else will be deleted. Also know that this is a creative fashion group, so let's keep it at that. Art sets and very very mundane sets (read: plain jeans plain shoes plain plain top) will not be tolerated. Love y'all folks!

Sharp Dressed Men.

Sharp Dressed Men.

This group is all about menswear. I am looking for sets that are fun, up-to –date and trendy. Most importantly… be original, and don’t forget men also like accessories. We will have great weekly contest to test your menswear style. No templates please.

La Garçonne

La Garçonne

'Une fille qui s'habille comme un garçon.'
Do you like to combine menswear and womenswear like the style from the great online shop La Garçonne, then this is a group for you!

Avenues de Style

Avenues de Style

Well... The title says it all ; ) This club is for people who see the important difference between fashion and having one's own style. Join if you love contests, there sure will be lots of them!
Love you, xxo

The Fashionista Crew.

The Fashionista Crew.

If you're a trendsetter, fashionably forward, and you
follow the latest styles of the seasons, than this is the
group for you! The Fashionista Crew is for all Polyvore
members who love anything and everything Fashion!

THE WRITER'S NOOK.

THE WRITER'S NOOK.

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” - Tony Morrison
 
“I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of. ” - Joss Whedon
 
“Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.” - Stephen King
 

* * *
 
Have you ever had the urge to write but didn't have a way to keep you motivated? Have you ever wanted constructive criticism but didn't have someone to provide that for you? Have you ever wanted to write and have people read your work?
 
Welcome to The Writer's Nook, a group aimed to provide all the writer's on this website with an friendly outlet for their writing. It's our intention here to be able to freely share our work whether it's a short story, some poems, novel, or a work-in-progress by either submitting to the group or by participating in contests.
 
The scariest moment is always just before you start (as said by Stephen King) and here at The Writer's Nook, we aim to help you out. All you have to do is say yes and press your fingertips to either the pen or the keys.

"The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about."
- Oscar Wilde
 
It's alright to ask. We know you want to know who WE are...
Oh, wait. By now, you already know, don't you?
 
We are the privileged young adults that were born and raised in New York City's Upper East Side.
 
Some of us got to attend Verona University, the newest Ivy League nestled in the forests outside of the city,
but now we are making our way past our early twenties, spreading out across the island, but always, still, the talk of the town.
 
Here on the UES we have our very own blog on Perez Hilton's site—and it's run by me.
I'm one of you, except I have all the latest tabs on your favorite NYC socialites and It Girls and their every day lives—which means their every day scandals, dramas and secrets.
Their a dirty blend of old and new money—the Waldorf-DiVellos, the Carters, the Riveras, the Samuels—even families like the Schullers tried to leave and couldn't stay away.
 
But don't worry. If you're not a part of the inner circle, you can be seen with us once and I'll never leave you alone. You just become a #tag on my blog.
 
If you live in the city, you've taken up a sickness, you and your iPhone—keeping up with us and reporting our latest whereabouts to the website (or the Insta, or the app),
discussing the latest gossip with your friends. We've gone international, too. Whether it's royalty, the world's biggest boy band, or rubbing shoulders
with big names of Hollywood and the literary world—well, we can't really blame you for your obsession.
 
And who am I? Oh, darling, you will never know. I am the eyes and ears of this place.
I'm the one telling everyone what you did last night, what you're hiding, what your worst fear is—besides Yours Truly, of course.
 
Either way you know you are just dying to know more.
Who wouldn't? Guess you'll have to stick around like the rest of us.
 
xoxo

[The 3 Golden Rules]:
 
1. Read and COMMENT on every member's story and/or group-related set whenever possible. A friendly tip: don't post a new set/story without catching up.
 
2. Write whenever you want to, whenever you are inspired. Minimum of one story OR set comment a month or you are not considered an active member. Not too difficult!
 
3. No drama, please keep it fictional ;) Don't be passive-agressive—please manage issues through PMs and privately. Don't mention someone else's character unless you are responding to their story and you have discussed a collaboration with them.
 
p.s. If you have any concerns, please PM @ahlexandra

Thank you for your interest in {MMN}!
 
We are one of the most successful private writing groups (if not the most successful... :D) here on Polyvore
as we go into our 7th year as a tight-knit group, into the third "generation" of our characters as they go into postgraduate life.
 
I am very proud to say that {MMN} started with a bored 13-year old inspired by books and I hope that it continues on for as long as it can.
 
As of right now, we are not looking for new members. Please follow me if you wish to know if/when we have open auditions.
 
xoxo,

This group was inspired by:
 
- The Gossip Girl franchise: the book series, and the TV show on the CW.
The fictional character 'Gossip Girl' belongs to Cecily von Ziegesar and is role-played in {MMN} with respect.
 
- Shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills, The City and 90210.
 
- The beautiful and inspirational New York City. and Monaco. and London.
 
- Gossip sites on celebs like Perez Hilton's and "Oh No They Didn't!"

We give an 'eff about the Oxford comma.

We give an 'eff about the Oxford comma.

the greatest thing in the world? writing.
here on polyvore, we have the epic "roleplaying".
ever want to write without having to create a character?
well, i'm here to solve that problem for you.
 
this is a group on polyvore where you enter your writing. this includes,
-rants
-letters
-blogs
-roleplay stories/ads
-diary entires of your life...
 
our message for you?
BE YOUR OWN CHARACTER.
 
if you've ever wanted to put
your writings/blurbs somewhere...
well, here you go.
 

THE 3 GUIDELINES TO FINE WRITING;
1) comment on the sets entered into the group! make friends with fellow writers...we don't bite. well, not most of the time. beware when we have writer's block though.
 
2) participate in contests. i'll have themed-contests for different types of writing.
it'll be fun. and a great way to get "featured" and promoted.
 
3) please, please: only join/enter sets if you are serious with your writing or simply have some sort of love for it.
 
so once again,
be your own character.
 
write.
 
and in case you were wondering?
"The 'Oxford comma' is an optional comma before the word 'and' at the end of a list:
ex., We sell books, videos, and magazines.
 
It's known as the Oxford comma because it was traditionally used by printers, readers, and editors at Oxford University Press. Not all writers and publishers use it, but it can clarify the meaning of a sentence when the items in a list are not single words:
ex., These items are available in black and white, red and yellow, and blue and green.
 
The Oxford comma is also known as the 'serial comma'."
