Poshmark held its first ever East Coast event a few weeks ago at the Ace Hotel and it was a great way to get to know the people at Poshmark, what their business is all about and mingle with some fabulous bloggers and other fashion industry favorites.
Jessie from Style and Pepper, Christine from Court and Hudson, Caroline from Sweet Caroline in the City, Christina from Profresh Style, Bonnie from Flashes of Style, and Laura from On the Racks were our hosts for the evening. And let me tell you, these girls are so sweet and down-to-earth, and they always have some great finds in their Poshmark closets!
How cool would it be to shop from your friends’ closets any time of day? Even your besties that live miles and miles away? Things they don’t want to wear anymore, but you could so rock in a totally different way? Let me introduce you to a new iPhone app (their Web site will launch soon!), Poshmark. It’s a FABULOUS new app that lets fashionstas put items they no longer have room to keep in their ever-growing closets up for sale. You take pictures of what you’re selling and add them to your “closet”. You can just upload a picture of the item or make it your own little fashion show, with action pictures showing people how you wore the certain item and what event it would look great going to.
Another fun option Poshmark offers are “Posh Parties.” These are real-time shopping events on the Poshmark app where fashion lovers can sell, browse and buy clothing, shoes and accessories. Each party they have has a theme, so it makes it easier to cull that over-stuffed closet of yours because you can do it one area at a time! Talk about taking the stress out of spring cleaning! Another plus for this app? They go through several steps to make sure you are who you say you are and aren’t an automated seller. On some well-known Web sites, it’s really hard to know exactly what you’re getting and if it’s real. With Poshmark, you don’t have to worry about that. The only thing you have to worry about is whether you can fit all this new stuff into your closet! Decisions, decisions!
Download the Poshmark app from the Apple iTunes store and get to shopping, selling or just browsing all the fabulous items you might have to add to your own closet. Wink.
