Posh Q&A with Lynsie of Similar Styles

SimilarStyles2

What was the inspiration behind Similar Styles?  I’ve always loved fashion and finding outfits similar to celebs, bloggers, etc! I’m a huge thrifter and when I realized I can recreate similar looks this way I wanted to show everyone that you can dress similar to high-end fashion without paying a similar price!

Who are your three favorite bloggers and why? Eleni McMullin of Convey The Moment because she’s not just an amazing blogger but she’s also a super genuine person! My other two would be Julia Hengel of Gal Meets Glam and Julia Sarinana of Sincerely Jules because, well, have you seen their fashion?! #onpoint

What spring trends are you looking forward to? I love gingham! I’ve been wearing it a lot lately. As you can see, I have a gingham button-down on with my Poshmark Hunter rain boots. Also, pattern mixing is a fave of mine! Flowers and stripes and polka dots – oh my!

We always love seeing your fab #PoshStyle. Do you have a strategy for finding the best deals on Poshmark? I’m usually inspired by something I saw on Instagram and then I head over to Poshmark right away to search and see if I can find a similar item! I think knowing what you’re looking for really helps. Also, if you see something that you’re not quite sure you want to buy, like it! You’ll thank me for that later when you don’t have to spend hours searching for that item again.

What is your favorite PoshFind to date? Or top two if you really can’t pick. LOVE my Hunter Boots! They are the exact  color I’ve been looking for. Along with all my other Poshmark shoes I really love my black cut-out wedges. They are perfect for spring and summer! Oh, and I’ll add a third, I LOVE my fringe booties! They are my go-to boho shoes!

Tiffany’s $15 Locket Turned Out to Be Much More

Whether you’re looking for a limited edition designer bag or a one-of-a-kind dress, Poshmark is the place to hunt down the best pieces – and at the best prices. Yet, what happens when casual browsing has you stumbling across the deal of a lifetime?

That’s what happened with Tiffany, a.k.a. @tiffanmc, when she found a locket that caught her eye. Having loved vintage-style jewelry, she snagged it for $15. She saw its potential and investigated to see if her instinct was right. You won’t believe the amazing gem she uncovered on Poshmark.

How long have you been on Poshmark? I have been a Posher since 2012, but I haven’t really been active as a seller and buyer until last year. Now I am addicted. I love finding great deals on items that would cost me sometimes three times as much in the store.

You found a locket that turned out to be pretty special. What drew you to it? I have always been drawn to vintage jewelry because of its craftsmanship, history and uniqueness; I just usually can’t afford to buy any of it! This particular locket I found by chance and stumbled upon this interesting vintage gold lion locket. I liked the locket so much I ended up purchasing it from her closet for $15.

Did you have any idea that it might be a hidden gem? Not at first. I was just drawn to the design and how pretty it was. But I had a feeling it might be valuable because one of the photos showed that the inside of the locket was stamped “14k” gold and the outside of the locket had some gems that appeared to be a ruby and an emerald.

When the locket arrived I knew based on how heavy it was, and how well constructed it was, that I might have stumbled upon a real vintage treasure. I was so excited to find out that I took the locket to an antique jewelry shop right around the corner from my office that same day.

Did you learn any interesting information about it from the appraiser? Since the locket was stamped “14k” in the inside the jeweler immediately acid tested the locket to see if it was in fact real gold and it was! Then he performed a scratch test to see if the locket was solid gold all the way through, and it also was! He also inspected the gems with a magnifier and verified that it was a real ruby and unprocessed emerald on the outside of the locket. He told me that based on the design and the way the locket was constructed, that it was probably a piece from the early 1900s, around 1910, and that what I thought was a lion may be a gargoyle. He estimated the locket was conservatively probably worth around $1,000.

I was so excited I had found such a valuable piece that I did some research on my own using the internet and discovered that the locket may have been an anniversary gift for police officers in the Police Officer’s Guild who had served over 35 years. I also found a few other similar lockets that sold online for up to $3,800!

How is it meaningful to you to wear a piece of jewelry with such history behind it? I love owning and wearing a beautiful piece of jewelry that has a unique history behind it and that I know no one else has.

Do you think you will continue to look for these hidden treasures? Yes! I have already been treasure seeking on poshmark since my valuable find!
