It’s great to be back with a full week of fabulous Posh Parties ahead! This week we have the oh-so-stylish Ediza hosting along with our community hosts. Plus, with the announcement of PoshFest 2014, we have a special kick-off party that will get you excited about showcasing your style with your PFFs and get started making sales to help get you to San Francisco. Happy Poshing!
1. Have you started packing for PoshFest 2014 yet? Since we made the official announcement on Monday, we can’t help but pick out our outfits in advance. We’re just that excited! First thing on our list? This amazing 3.1 Phillip Lim bag in the Posh-perfect shade. So, who is joining us?
2. Our Founder and CEO Manish Chandra took to Virgin.com to talk about how fashion is a big part of the booming sharing economy.
"American women put about $1 trillion worth of fashion into their closets every three years and almost a third of that is never worn. Enter the closet-sharing economy. Closet-sharing is arguably the fastest growing sector of the sharing economy and quickly changing the way Americans shop."
3. Poshmark was also recently featured on NBC Baltimore. Even newscasters need a closet refresh, too!
4. Wednesdays at noon PST is a fun time when we get chatty with StyleCaster’s #stylechat on Twitter. This week we gabbed about personal style tips, palazzo pants and sass-tastic graphic tees.
5. Want to know a little secret? Teamposhmark is on a certain app. We’ll give you a hint:
San Francisco is calling and it wants you to come visit November 8th and 9th for a weekend full of style, inspiration, Posh Partying, empowerment, hanging with your PFFs and more!
Have you registered for PoshFest 2014 yet? Time to brag about it and recruit more PFFs to join in the fun.
We’ve created this nifty badge to share in your Poshmark closet, on your blog sidebar or even on your body as a tattoo. Why not? It is sure to be that epic. If you need more convincing, check out the pictures from PoshFest 2013.
So right click the badge, save to your desktop and start sharing! When adding to your closet, set the brand to PoshFest so you can see who else is going. And don’t forget to tag your PFFs in the app and on social to make sure they’re going, too!
Team Posh is busy finalizing the details and we’ll share ASAP. So hurry and register by July 20th to save 20% off the regular ticket price!
After 30 fun-filled days of Instagramming our hearts out, we’re looking back on all of the amazing photos from our living #ThePoshLife challenge. From fun in the sun to rockin’ our best selfies, we are so thankful for each and everyone one of you who joined in for the month.
Yet, only one could come away with a $250 Posh shopping spree, so congrats to Margaret, aka @xoxoshoebug on Instagram, for taking home the big prize! Her photos were full of friends, fashion and summer fun, which really captures the heart of #ThePoshLife.
We’re all a little sad for the challenge to end, but are planning another one. So stay tuned and keep living and sharing #ThePoshLife!
Sometimes a closet makes you stop in your virtual tracks because you know you’ve found your stylemate. That’s how we felt upon discovering Jessica’s closet. We are swooning over the styled Covershots featuring some of our favorite brands like Anthropologie and Current/Elliot along with some more unique vintage pieces. Did we mentioned that they are priced to sell? Shop now before this curated collection finds its way into someone else’s wardrobe!

Happy Independence Day from Poshmark! Today we are trading time at PMHQ for time with family and friends to celebrate - and shop, of course. We thought we would add to the celebration by offering freedom from shipping fees on orders of $50 or more through Sunday, July 6th at 11:50pm PST.
May your holiday weekend be filled with fun and Posh Finds!
There’s only one thing better than getting a #PoshFind delivered to your door, and that’s being able to send one off to a newfound PFF! Here are some tips and tricks for making your #PoshPackage oh-so-sweet:
Whether sleek and simple is your style or you love all things color, let your personal style shine through. A twist of colorful ribbon, a touch of rustic twine, wrapping paper, customized stickers—little touches like this can make all the difference when shipping off your buyer’s new #PoshFind. The icing on the cake? A handwritten thank you note, straight from you to your new PFF!
Plus, don’t forget to snap a pic and share on social with #PoshPackaging to show off your fine work!
Be sure to choose the right kind of packaging for your order. Shipping envelopes can work for smaller items that can be folded, such as tops or skirts. When it comes to shipping out that delicate necklace, a pair of sunglasses, or a structured bag, boxes always work best. Just be sure to choose a size that best fits your needs, and don’t forget to add padding when necessary! Wrapping up your item in tissue paper doesn’t just look pretty, it also helps protect it. We’ve also love using magazine pages, torn straight from our fave fashion mags, to add a little bit of padding to a package.
We know how easy it is to mix up an item or two when you’re packaging up multiple orders. Here’s our little secret: Post-It notes! Just jot down the item (or items) in the order on a Post-It note, stick it on the shipping label right after you print it out, and double check your boxes right before you tape them up. That way, you can make sure that your West Coast PFF gets those shoes she’s been eyeing while your East Coast PFF gets her bag. A little reminder goes a long way!
Nothing says freedom quite like a three-day weekend spent celebrating with patriotic pride. And what wardrobe staple is more American than blue jeans? So for this installment of Wish List Wednesday we are sharing our favorite denim deals.
