The Swoon Staff obviously loves to read, but did you know that some of us love to shop? What better way to extend the reading experience than by trying to put together outfits based on what we’re reading! Luckily for us, there are some awesome shopping sites like Polyvore.com that can help us make sartorial fiction a reality. Follow us on Polyvore to see what we’re creating!
