Of course Polly does! What parrot, wouldn’t? –Enter Polyvore! If you are unfamiliar with this shopping site, it is okay, it has only been around for a decade and far more inspiring and shop-worthy than Instagram. I was first made aware of it about seven years ago. It is wonderful to scroll through specially curated editorialized sets, where you can shop the entire set and see other sets that use the same item in various ways outfits, makeup schemes, or rooms.

For the Modern Victorian Lady
Victorian Inspired Parlor. To be fair, the demilune console table here is more Rococo but I do not believe the average person cares. This is just my Interior Design degree coming forth.
Ah, men upon the Hunting Party! Yes, 2017 is the year we shall see more gentlemanly things on 19th Century Modern! Guys, this is your first Rep of the new year! Can I get a Huzzah?!
Steampunk meets Disney?! I can’t even!
Steampunk for Him Collection
Who does not adore a beautifully ‘punked out room? Personally, I am drawn to the exposed old brick with wainscoting and herringbone wood floors. It is very on point for setting the ambiance of the office!
For downright gorgeous glamour (and serious Downton Abbey Vibes), one can never go wrong with Edwardian flair. Note: The Gibson shoe by American Duchess, hands down my favorite shoe she stocks (although the all her other Victorian/Edwardian kicks are just as enviable–Basically, I want them all. Not going to lie.)
Lastly, for something edgier for the New Victorian. This set also folds in elements the coming Chinese New Year. Perfect end note!
