Valentine’s Day is taking over the internet with candy hearts, pink faux-fur jackets and lace, but this week we’d love to spotlight PoshLove - a kind of sisterhood that you can only find on Poshmark.

Posh Friends Forever, or as we like to call it ‘PFFs” - Alexandra and Lori - met each other on the app and built a friendship of a lifetime miles and miles away. For today’s post, we asked them a few questions about PoshLove and how to build true friendships on Poshmark.

Why are relationships on Poshmark important?

Building positive relationships is one of the most important factors in being successful in the app. I would say that the majority of my success in sales and in finding a great deal is a direct result of always treating other women with respect and really understanding what they’re wanting in an item. Being social in the app has resulted in several best friends and countless positive encounters. A positive relationship follows you all over the platform and people look forward to working with you when they know you really care and are passionate about what you’re buying and selling.

What are tips to starting and maintaining friendships with the Poshmark community? 

One of the best ways to make friends on Poshmark is to familiarize yourself with Poshers who have similar style! It’s also great to learn about what size they wear in case you find an item that can’t be passed up! My Posh friends (including Lori and many of the girls at PMHQ) love to tag me in fab finds and I do the same for them!

Social media: helpful or hurtful to building relationships?

I am a strong advocate of a social media presence in general and networking with fellow Poshers is an amazing way to stay connected and learn more about each other! Seeing #PoshStyle on Instagram makes me excited to list and buy more as well. Poshmark is all about community, and social media makes the community that much more fun!

What are tips to starting and maintaining friendships with the Poshmark community?  

1. Reach out to others. Compliment a user if you like their photos, closet, personal style, etc. Friendships can develop over shared love for a certain designer/brand or particular style.
2. Support each other. This can be done through sharing each other’s listings, encouraging each other and by sharing great fashion finds. If you see something that reminds you of a certain user, tell them about it. 
3. Maintain a presence within the app and with other users. The more time you spend getting to know someone and participating in the app, the better are your chances for maintaining a friendship. 

What’s your favorite thing about connecting with women on Poshmark?

I love so much about Poshmark! We support each other, keep each other updated on sample sales and other fashion related events and share amazing fashion finds from closets across the country all within the app. On top of all those things, I recently reconnected with a childhood friend who now lives halfway around the world. We were able to find each other - thanks to Poshmark. Not only is it an app for buying and selling fashion, it’s also a social media platform as well. It is truly genius!

Any favorite memories from how you and Alexandra started talking

Alexandra and I have very similar fashion tastes. We both kept noticing that we “liked” all the same things. We’d share great fashion finds with each other and specific items for one another. Next thing you know, we’re purchasing matching Burberry button-ups! 

If you can’t get enough of their sisterhood of style, join them as they host the Total Trendsetter Posh Party tonight!

Leather, leather, leather! This luxe trend is everywhere, but what is the most stylish and original way to wear it? Fashion bloggers and power Poshers - Tracy of The Right Shoes Blog and Jackie of Living After Midnite - answers all our questions about this popular trend for winter (and every other season).

If you can’t get enough of these leather ladies’ style tips, check out their host picks tonight at our Downtown Chic Posh Party!

1. What 3 closet staples are must-haves for a city gal?
Chic flats, a nice leather bag and an assortment of jackets and coats!

2. How can you wear leather in a flirty and feminine way?
I like wearing leather accents and featuring only one leather piece in an outfit. Keep it simple and dress it up with some pearls or a pop of color.

3. Leather leggings or moto jacket and why?
Moto jacket for sure - you can wear it all year long (leather leggings don’t get along with summer too well)!

Check out Tracy’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Leather vest: $16 / Leather skirt: $25 Retail $125 / Leather boots: $200 Retail $350

1. How would you describe your personal style?
I’ve had this question come up MULTIPLE times, and I never quite know how to answer it. The only word that seems to describe it is eclectic - “deriving ideas, style or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.” I’m attracted to SO many different stylesm and I try to incorporate them all into my looks and making them my own. I love pulling from different ideas, adding unexpected touches, and I’m never afraid to try new trends. So I think the only way to describe my personal style is eclectic and ever-changing!

2. If you could shop any celebrities closet who would it be and why?
That’s SUCH a hard question, but it would have to be Olivia Palermo! Everything (and I mean everything) she wears is just perfect! Also, I’ve been obsessing over everything Jessica Alba wears lately! Her street style is just awesome!

image

3. What is the a creative way to wear leather without resorting to a moto jacket?
I’m ALL about leather boots! Whether they’re ankle booties, knee highs, over the knee, flat, heeled, whatever they are - boots are instant outfit makers!

Check out Jackie’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Helmut Lang Gala Sheath Dress: $229 Retail $495 / YSL Tribute Platform Sandals: $299 Retail $895 / Alexander Wang Rocco Satchel Bag: $500 Retail $850

Whether you are celebrating Fall on the West Coast or styling it up in the East Coast, today’s hosts and guest bloggers - Naty of A Love Affair with Fashion and Paulina of Lil’ Bits of Chic - are here to cover it all on the blog! If you are absolutely falling for Naty’s and Paulina’s fall fashions, don’t miss out on their “Flirty & Feminine” Posh Party tonight!

I’m all about long sleeve sweater dresses and tall boots for cooler weather.  It’s great for staying warm & stylish at the same time.

Booties, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a hat are a must have for me in the fall!

image

I am currently having a love affair with leather, so it’s definitely a go-to piece for me this season.  I’m also loving the oxblood color trend as well. I definitely gravitate towards blazers, moto jackets, and long coats for the fall.

Since San Diego tends to go from hot to cold throughout the day, a jacket that I can toss on and take off is pretty essential. Lately I have been putting my moto jacket to good use because it keeps me warm and layers well with other pieces. 

image

Fall is synonymous with boot weather and when I want to jazz up a casual outfit without compromising comfort I reach for my over the knee, no heel boots. By the same token, when I want to dress up my go-to booties at the moment are my Zara cut out booties.

Hi Poshmark friends!

I’m Cris from the fashion and lifestyle blog, My Fashion Juice. On the Poshmark app, I’m known as @myfashionjuice. Today, I’m taking over Poshmark’s blog to share some tips to my fellow Poshers out there. As one of the Suggested Users and long time Poshers, I am constantly asked how I reached over 2 million followers and get a lot of sales.

Here are some tips:

image

Your cover photo means everything. It’s the first thing that people see when they browse through their feed. Your cover photo shouldn’t just be attractive, it should stand out from the rest. Make sure your photos are clear and your items are well presented, with the right color.

At the same time, add as many photos as you can to give your buyers a 360-view of the item. This gives buyers more confidence when shopping your closet and minimizes inquiries about how the back or side looks, etc.

image

I’m always amazed with Poshers who get creative with their listing. Those closets that strike you most are obviously the ones you remember and visit every time. Take a cue from @maymayscloset who hangs her items against a chalkboard/wall and writes interesting phrases and/or descriptions about the item she’s listing. Extra points for her beautiful handwriting!

image

I always tell my fellow Poshers to share their listings at least three times a day. Believe me, it’s effective. Sharing is like advertising. If you’re not sharing your items to your followers and to Posh Parties, then it’s like selling secretly in the dark corners of the web! How would they know what you’re selling if you’re not actively advertising?

So remember to share regularly. It only takes 5 minutes or less during your break time! And when people share your items, listen to @tammyk289 and try to share back. I try to share at least 5 to 10 other people every time I’m on the app. Not only will they appreciate it, but they will remember you and share your items regularly.

image

No matter what commenters or potential buyers say, even if it’s something negative about your listing, always keep your cool. Be nice and be professional when responding to all inquiries. At the same time, respond to comments in a timely manner and always ship out your sold items on time.

Follow these tips and sooner or later, you’ll find yourself with a growing number of followers and sales. And make sure to join me tonight as I host the "City Chic" Posh Party! Hope to see you there!

Summertime reminds us of cold lemonade, orange-flavored popsicles, and sundresses in warm citrus colors. When it comes to hot summer trends, citrus instantly brightens up your closet with its sunny color palette! Wear citrus as a showstopper dress or a pop of color on your toes!

With Independence day coming up, we can’t help but salute to the red, white and blue print that we love so much for the summer. Patriotic and pretty, the American flag print brightens up any cut-offs and reminds us of hot summer barbecues and summer romances with the boy next door. If you want to relive your childhood, be sure to shop these fabulous listings!

Meet Laura and Emily.

Laura is strutting her way through a fabulous life in Memphis, balancing a day job and her blog, Walking in Memphis in High Heels. Emily is a fashion fanatic originally from Arkansas, living a fashionable life one day at a time and updating her adorable blog, The Sweetest Thing.

Laura and Emily met on Poshmark and instantly connected through their love for fashion(hello, matching shoes!)… and the rest is Posh history! Today, they are collaborating with us to feature one of our favorite trends for the summer: polka dots.

image

Here’s what they have to say about this trend:

"Polka dots have been around forever in fashion, but they are still so fun and fresh today. They’re such a great classic trend and can act like a neutral too! I am loving them for this spring and summer to add an extra punch to my outfits."

- Laura

"Polka dots are back! ‘O’, but wait! Did this fun pattern ever leave the fashion scene? No, because polka dots are a fashion staple! Polka dots can be fun and retro, very geometric, classic, sophisticated, graphically bold, and very modern. For me, the beauty of the dots is its natural ability to play well with other patterns. Mixing dots with stripes or plaids, or other colors and/or sizes of dots allows me to mix and match and expand my wardrobe while creating an unique style … with a pop!"

- Emily
