What's up Buttercup?

PatiAraujo_lipslide_elements (33).png

Buttercup yellow was one of the Spring 2016 pantone colors. This color has been in collections for few years but this spring it is exploding .... I don't know, maybe it is the sunshine or just plain old "the power of promotion". Yes, baby! it is everywhere -- in all the spring collections, in home decor, art, and chachkas.

Now, I am not a yellow-color-loving girl but I got to go with the flow, Right? So, as always I went to my polyvore friends for insights and inspiration. So, if you were not sold on the color, well think again! Drum-roll ....I present you the winners of the Buttercup color challenge contest in my BROKEtheINTERNET group.

First Over-All winner

Modern Art, Mixed Media, Collage

I just wanted to wish all of my friends on Polyvore a "Happy New Year!"  

It has been a wonderful experience for sharing, fashion, art, beauty, and literature with you!

Happy New Year- Dreams and Butterflies

If you had doubts, these ladies know how to erase them all. As always I am just blown away by the level of creativity and sense of style by the polyvore community. It is not just a game, it is truly a style think-tank but with a cherry on top: no rules, no restraints, and no limitations. But not to be derailed from the real purpose of this post. Here are the rest of the 12 winners:

I also select three sets that stand out for artistic merit, technical difficulty in execution of the set and one that I really love that is slightly oft-topic. These are my subjective pics and I love that part of the contests probably the best. So here there are:

 Artistic merist by the amazing triciamcmillan

Nature does nothing in vain

 Technical Difficulty selection: A home decor that is just calling for you by a true polyvore A-lister


Yellow Decor
