Polyvore meetup, Belgrade

Polyvore is the proof  that virtual, creative places are gathering a special group of people who appears to be very different, but when you look deeply, very similar. Our story goes like this...
At first, it was just talking about sets we have created. And then, some „picture“ started to speak  native language.
Balkan language!
Word by word.
Laugh!
Get to know!
Recognizing.
It looked like rambling over the giant closet full of various, lovely but incompatible pieces.
That is a challenge for every Polyvore girl. Isn`t it?

So then, at the end of  2008. before Christmas holidays, a group from Belgrade decided to meet live.
Just like that.
Suddenly!  (that is our favorite word)

We didn`t know each others names (just Polyvore nicknames), not even ages or faces.
Those small avatars were the only thing that we had. We were complete strangers.
From this point now, that was quite risque decision. But, we dared! We improvised, and got a huge reward.
It is a beautiful, very unusual, deep friendship despite of age differences, fashion, lifestyles, professions, experiences, religion, family and social statuses.
Meeting after meeting, our group became bigger and bigger. Girls from Belgrade got their backup from other parts of  Serbia: Novi Sad, Niš, Kragujevac, Bačka Palanka and a few ladies from neighboring country, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We talk about everything: fashion, books, movies, the weather, Easter eggs, favorite dishes, men, children, plants, pets, sales, job, TV shows, memories, plans, trips.
The love for the game and beauty is what keeps us together.
We learn from each other, exchange experiences, give support, break prejudices.
We grow together!
Plans for the future?
To get old together, if possible.

At the end, I can just say...Polyvore, thank you for this story!
