Strands of Bronze and Gold on Polyvore

Strands of Bronze and Gold I told ya'll a little last week about Random Buzzers.  I did mention the author visits, didn't I?  Jane Nickerson, author of STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD, will be visiting March 11-15th.  You can submit questions to her forum thread for a chance to win an ARC!  You have through next Sunday to ask her a question and win.  (You can ask a question after that, but you won't be able to win a copy of the book, and you know you want a copy.)

This week I whipped up a set on Polyvore to represent STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD.  I discovered that I don't spend enough time on Polyvore to be very good at it.  We've all got different talents, right?

See it on pinterest!
I got a few dresses for the more modern girl in there, but they both have the plunging décolletage Monsieur Bernard prefers.  The bronze Docs clearly represent practical shoes for wandering around the nearby woods.  Obviously.  There's a swan boat, a braided bracelet, holy men, and an abbey in the novel.  I don't know why I put a fancy shoe there.  Does one need a reason for fancy shoes?

Are you intrigued?

    1. I'd love to wear something that dramatic, but the occasion is rare. That's why I included a somewhat more day-to-day version. (Although I'd buy I much less expensive version, if I bought a dress like that.)

  2. Ooh, pretty dresses! I like them both. What is Polyvore?

    1. It's a fashion site where you can make photosets with clothes, accessories, and such. It's strangely addictive. It's a good way to play around with color and shape.

    1. It's great if you're a visual person.

  5. Oh, naughty Monsieur Bernard and his penchant for redheads and plunging necklines! I should spend more time on Polyvore myself--such a great idea to use it as a tool for a feature like this.

    1. Sadly, I didn't find a redhead who had the right look for me. (I do understand the no faces on covers trend - it's hard to find the right face and putting the wrong one there just doesn't work.)

  6. Ahh, I haven't used Polyvore in ages! It's nice though to be able to whip up a fashion collage on it.
