Fashion blogger and darling Posher - Dhuvri of Stilettos & Sequins - loves to share her passion for style. With NYFW behind us, we’re so excited that she’s taking over the blog today to discuss which trends were hot on the runway this year.
If you’re eager to try out a new look, check out Dhuvri’s host picks at tonight’s Street Style Posh Party!
In this OOTD, I’ve put together an outfit incorporating two of my favorite AW14 trends - gold, red and an absolute staple - leopard. Burgundy is one of my favorite colors to pair with gold. I know some of us are sick of this cold weather, but the fact remains - Winter is my favorite season of the year.
I am so excited to be guest blogging for Poshmark today, and I’m even more thrilled about hosting my first Posh Party tonight - I hope you’ll join
me! Since New York Fashion Week AW14 shows just ended, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about the top five trends on the AW14 runways:
Checker Print: Whether it’s plaid, gingham, tartan or windowpane, checker prints have been having quite the moment this Fall/Winter, and they are back for Round 2! I’ve worn my share of checker prints on my blog, and I can’t wait to rock more!
Fur: While fur has been a Fall/Winter staple, the AW14 runways were all
about fur in some awesome colors and furry accents.
Gold: Dying, you guys! Designers definitely went for gold for AW14, and
I’m not complaining - I love me some gold! Whether it’s a little or a lot,
don’t be afraid to rock gold!
Red: A bit of a surprise, huh? Bright reds to burgundies, NYFW was
definitely in the red zone!
White: Over the past couple years, designers have been consistently breaking the “No white after Labor Day” rule, and I couldn’t be
happier. I love white, and I’m not gonna stop wearing it … ever!
Are you excited for these trends? What is your favorite?
1. What are your must-have items in your closet?
I tend to dress in layers because I ever know how hot or cold I will be when working on photoshoots, so good quality tees like James Perse, tons of well tailored blazers from Rag & Bone, and jeans like J.Brand that wear well without giving me “saggy butt.”
Talented singer, Buzznet writer, and power Posher Jessica (can we say triple threat?) is taking over the Poshmark blog to share her own take on Miley’s VMA outfit and how you can get this rockstar look for less than $100! If you are absolutely loving Jessica’s style tips, check out her fashion picks tomorrow night as she hosts the Edgy & Boho Babe Posh Party!
Ready, set, style!
With over 45,000 tweets a MINUTE about Miley Cyrus, I find it only fitting to talk about her AMAZING style transformation. Miley’s controversial VMA outfit has been on the minds of many since the awards aired on August 25th.
Unfortunately, the majority of the public has decided this is not an acceptable outfit. So I decided to recreate a more wearable version of the “We Can’t Stop” star’s revealing nude outfit in a more conventional and practical way!
And honestly, her choice of shoes was AMAZING! Who doesn’t love flatform creepers?! Pair this with some red lipstick, and you can have the entire look for under $100:
Rock on, Poshers!
6. If the President of the United States was a designer, who would you elect as the leader of the most fashionable country?
Meet Pamela: a rockstar Poshmarker from Seattle who loves to shop.
Whether it’s on Poshmark, at Nordstrom’s flagship store, or a variety of local boutiques, she’s all about it! If you peek into her closet, you’d find a whole lot of black, but Pam uses these pieces to achieve three signature styles: “clean and classy with an edge”, “drippy drapey” a la Rick Owens or Alexander Wang, or boho… and she totally rocks these well.
You can catch her Poshmarking anywhere from the road in her car (in the passenger seat, of course), in bed, on break at work, and even while shopping! Read on to see what else she has to say about her love for Poshmark and so much more!
Poshmark (PM): Why do you love Poshmark?
Pamela (P): There’s so many reasons I love Poshmark. One, it’s given me a reason not to let my closet go haywire. I can actually maintain my closet now. It’s a bit more manageable than it was last year before I started using the app. Two, I love stumbling across items I have missed in store or I am currently obsessing about, but know the fiancé would freak if I purchased that item at retail value. Lol. Three, it’s given me the opportunity to build new friendships with ladies who are just as obsessed with fashion as I am. And four, I get to see first hand how lovely people can be. I see closets on Poshmark that actually donate the earnings they receive to charities. I just think that’s fantastic!
PM: What was your favorite Poshmark purchase?
P: My Alexander Wang Rocco with all black hardware for $450! That was such a steal!
PM: As an amazing Poshmarker, what are some tips and tricks you would give to new community members?
P: Covershot and description are everything! Always make sure the pictures are clear and thoroughly describe the item. Don’t describe the items as “pink shirt” or “black shoes” Look at it this way, would you buy something at an online shop that describes items in that manner. Also, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! Share your items and share others. I know some ladies have shared my items and out of curiosity I’d start filtering through their closets and I’d find items that I would end up purchasing. Make sure to play nice; this is like owning your own shop. Ladies remember who wasn’t easy or nice to work with. Just like that 100 other Poshers know about you—and not in a good way. Finally, just have fun! This app was made to sell and buy and build new friendships!
