This week, we’re pleased to introduce you to Ashley from South Carolina - although you may know her as @pattimayo. She is among the best when it comes to leaving warm, encouraging comments on other users’ designs and her street style outfits are amazing.
What I love about the designs in her feed is that regardless of the fashion styles contained in her individual sets, her layouts always have a consistent, signature look. Plus, her username is a brilliant throwback to one of the cartoons I watched when I was younger. Which one? Read her full Q&A below to find out!
A few of our favorite @pattimayo sets are included below along with her full Q&A.

I LOVE EDITORIAL FASHION it’s my EVERYTHING! ShopLook has its own community I feel like we are ALL family (which most of us are many miles apart this app has connected us together for this I am thankful). I have learned so much from a lot of users on ShopLook! I truly believe this app will begin new prosperous opportunities for users like myself! I made a promise to myself when Polyvore shut down that if I had another place where I could create I would create everyday! ShopLook is HEAVEN SENT!!!
How long have you been creating sets?
Since 2013. I started with Polyvore.
