Note: I've made this an "ask to join" so I can monitor "bot" (robotic) fashion marketing profiles from entering as that is not the goal of this group. However, Shop Owners are welcome (Etsy, Zazzle, etc.)
 
If you're interested in fashion promotions / fashion marketing groups or contests , you can find many here:
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/search.groups
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/contest.browse
This group will serve as a V i r t u a l M e e t u p, a place to C O N N E C T with cherished friends I consider PEARLS who follow & interact with me here on Polyvore & New Followers too. :D
@ TheSeaPearl.polyvore.com
 
Some other reasons for creating this group:
- to send announcements to everyone at once,
(Holiday Greetings, etc.) since tags and site notifications are sometimes hard to keep up with.
- to find & visit my friends pages easier
- It's also a great way for my polyfriends with common interests & values to meet eachother, and join in our circle of friendships to make our time on Polyvore more personable and enjoyable. So I'll be running "Meet & Greet" contests from time to time.

THE ART & POWER OF WORDS
 
Suited for those who value the art of positive, progressive and assertive communication when it's called for. There is a difference between assertive and aggressive communication.
 
There are times in life when we need to protest about something, or bring attention to an important issue or cause. The internet can be a great place to vent, but often I come across people displacing their anger on perfect strangers. Things they would not tell "directly" to the person in their life who is bothering them, they "displace" that on someone on the internet they don't even know. Or if they feel bullied in real life, they come online to displace that on the first person that crosses their path it seems. This is abusive, and goes beyond venting. How can we change this? Maybe a new set of communication skills and approach. Or conflict resolution skills. Other times we want to protest against something we're against, but our argument loses credibility because it's not logically based, and our points are not supported well. Check out upcoming blog entries about "Logical Fallacies" This is something first year college students are required to learn and apply in their research papers. So if you're going to college or have kids, this is good to know.

"God created the world using words—“Let there be light”—and there was light. Human beings also create through words. They produce great novels that move us, and music that warms our hearts. Writers put much thought into the right selection of words so their books or songs will sell."

- PERSONALITY TRAIT OF A BULLY (These are quoted, not my words)
"Seething with resentment, bitterness, hatred and anger. Have prejudices and displace their anger onto others. In almost all cases, the bully lacks empathy for his targeted individual or group. Jealousy is also another cause, whereby an individual feels threatened by the characteristics or achievements of another individual and engages in bullying as a way to feel empowered and dominant."

ASSERTIVE COMMUNICATION (Opposite of AGGRESSIVE)
 
Assertiveness is the quality of being self-assured without being aggressive. In contrast, "aggressive communication" judges, threatens, lies, breaks confidences, stonewalls, and violates others' boundaries.
~Dorland's Medical Dictionary
 
Self-assertion (assertiveness) is a behavioral skill taught by many personal development experts, behavior therapists, and cognitive behavioral therapists. It is a direct and effective way to express one's feelings, beliefs and opinions. It nurtures honest communication and dialogue about one's legitimate rights. Assertive communicators express opinions, thoughts and feelings openly in a non-defensive manner that improves our interpersonal communication skills. It's something we can all benefit to learn and practice on a daily basis. I personally learned (and am still learning) to practice this in my interactions with others, and hope to be a role model for my children so that they learn the art of defending themselves without offending others, because life will and does put us all in the types of situations that will call for it.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY
 
This is amazing. Take a look at these images of people of all cultures. WE are all unique and different. Take the time to look closely at people. Look in their eyes, they all have a story. Don't generalize them and put them into a category. See them each for their uniqueness. Just like the variety of flowers, birds, trees, we are all special and unique. This is the divine design of our creator, it is God's artwork. But, we are all alike in that we have eyes to see, ears to hear, mouths to speak, and a heart to feel and think. May our hearts be pure so that we may see GOD in ourselves and others. And may we each treat each other as if we are doing to God, because we are.

LOGICAL FALLACIES
 
(Very useful for college students' research paper writing and for the general public, effective communication, critical consumer of media, etc. Fallacies are very common in political rhetoric, so it's good to be aware of them when choosing a political candidate to vote for.)
 
Fallacies are common errors in reasoning that will undermine the logic of your argument. Fallacies can be either illegitimate arguments or irrelevant points, unintentional (honest mistake) or intentional (deception / trickery), and are often identified because they lack evidence that supports their claim. They can be gross generalizations, hasty conclusions, unfounded inferences, etc. This subject is a part of college level curriculum to help students make sound arguments, support their claims, and be credible writers and communicators.
 
The ability to identify logical fallacies in the arguments of others, and to avoid them in one’s own arguments is valuable. Fallacious reasoning keeps us from knowing the truth, and the inability to think critically makes us vulnerable to manipulation by those skilled in the art of rhetoric.
 
Some logical fallacies are more common than others, and so have been named and defined.

FYI
I hope you win many trophies here at Fabulous-Expressions!
How my contests are judged:
1. Based first on the contest theme. For example if the contest theme calls for a Yellow Set, that's what I'll look for first. If the theme calls for a solid yellow skirt, then plaids, stripes, or polka-dots in another color will not do, as it would not be solid yellow. If the theme calls for specific items please be sure to include them in the set, i.e., a hat or odd bag, or a particular style of shoe.
2. Details! Color, style, great use of main theme items, background, layout, complimentary items, and added effects should all work together to make one gorgeous set. I love the set where the artist has paid particular attention to the details that make each set his/her own creative masterpiece. I'm a little OCD in that I like to see shoes paired in sets as opposed to the one going solo! :)
3. Unique Creativity! I check for copied sets! I will try my best NOT to make a copied set a winner. I have been victim to copying and mass item raids and I am not fond of those who choose to play this way. Be your own unique self. Originality is highly valued here! If an original set has 7 items, and your entered set uses 3-7 of those items, you will not be chosen as a winner no matter how beautiful your set is, even if you change the layout or add a few extra items. I consider this copying because the set will not be an original. There are thousands of gorgeous items on Polyvore, please use the search feature to gain your main set items and not from the sets of your poly-friends!
4. You enjoy the contests here and you keep coming back for more! :)
