The Fictional Closet: A Polyvore Set for The Testing’s Malencia Vale

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 that can help us make sartorial fiction a reality. Follow us on Polyvore to see what we’re creating!

I’ve been listening to the audiobook of The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. It’s so good – a really smart dystopian YA that’s got a flawed but relatable and courageous, a believable premise, AND a complicated but totally root-for-able romance. It’s making it difficult for me to do anything but drive around, subway around, sit in my room and listen to this book.

In my first foray into the world of fashion blogging, I created a Polyvore set for Malencia “Cia” Vale, The Testing‘s ferociously tough protagonist. She’s resourceful (so much room in that bag!), prepared for anything (layers, of course), practical (no heels!), and attention-grabbing (duh).
