Celebrating Family Achievements

  I had to pause on my coverage of Miami Beach International Fashion Week, because I'm having a proud daughter moment. I introduced my mom to Polyvore about three years back and now my mom has won her first major contest, second place in a contest hosted by American Eagle, and her design set is being featured on a Times Square billboard!!! The whole family has been in an uproar of excitement over this, as having something you designed on a billboard in Times Square is really a once in a lifetime experience. I am desperately trying to convince my mom that this calls for a trip to NYC to see this billboard in person as it is only up from March 11 (today) to March 18, which leaves a small window of opportunity, and negotiations for tickets are under way. If you happen to be in NYC Times Square area and see the big American Eagle billboard feel free to take a picture for me and send it my way, my mom's design is under the name NPERU and is the colorful design set right next to that name!
 Here is a picture of her design set in Times Square thanks to Polyvore:
