I found this really cool site that allows you to play dress up (and play interior designer) with no limitations!
Polyvore is a free, easy-to-use web-based application for mixing and matching images from anywhere on the web. It is also a vibrant community of creative and stylish people.
Once you become a member you can simply choose images, click and drag them onto the “canvas” and create your “collages”. You can save your sets and share them with the Polyvore community!
This is such a great tool to help you express your creativity and have fun without breaking the bank.
