How does one define an “it girl”? For us, it’s a Posher who has impeccable style, takes beyond gorgeous covershots and tempts you to buy everything in her closet.
See also: Beth a.k.a. @bbelecki. Not only are we OBSESSED with her closet, but just love following her style on Instagram. How does she do it all so stylishly? Read on to learn how she is leveling up her closet, her tips for new Poshers and how she gets inspired.
We notice you have started “leveling up” and selling some wholesale items. Amazing! What made you take the plunge?
Ever since I started my Apparel Merchandising and Design degree, I’ve always been interested in starting my own online shop, but it was never a practical goal while I was in school. Poshmark has been just a hobby, until I graduated in December and became an unemployed post grad with endless free time. Since then I took my hobby to the next level and I’ve been running my closet like a small business. I’m still in the early stages, but I’d like to take it even further in the future.
Your photos are so gorgeous and uber-stylish. Where do you look for inspiration?
Thank you! I’ve always found my main inspiration in color/texture combinations and the ways they compliment each other. I follow an insane amount of fashion/interior design bloggers, Instagrammers, etc. and I get a lot of my style inspiration from them. Whatever site I’m browsing, if I see an outfit or color combination that I’m drawn to, I screenshot it to get inspiration from later. I find that when styling, you can’t go wrong with neutrals and pops of color. I’m also constantly inspired by how fellow Poshers style their closets.
What’s your favorite thing about Poshmark?
Besides being able to give and snag killer deals on clothing (I love me a good deal!), my favorite thing is definitely the awesome community. I love that Poshmark is a community of women inspiring and helping one another to succeed. I would have never gotten as far on Poshmark if it wasn’t for the encouragement and support from Posh strangers turned PFF. I love that Poshmark inspires women to become entrepreneurs and gives us a platform to be girl bosses.
We consider you a total “It Girl” at PMHQ, who are three other “It Girls” you admire?
Hayley | @hhua – I’m not sure if she knows this, but she was the original person to inspire me to amp up my closet because hers was so creative and cohesive. She also was the first person to really support my closet and share my items like crazy!
Kristen | @fancypantsmcgee – Those cover photos though…I’m a visual merchandising lover and the way she visually presents her merchandise is absolutely flawless and inspiring.
Victoria | @alvictoria – Since before and after Poshmark’s blog post feature, her incredible success and closet inspired me and my Poshing efforts. Her crazy designer deals are the epitome of why Poshmark is a fashion girl’s best friend.
How would you describe your style?
My style constantly changes with my mood. Sometimes I’m girly, edgy, boho, or casual, it all depends. I’m a firm believer that an outfit can impact your mood for the day. I blend different styles together to create a look that is chic but with an edge. I own an abundance of simple items in a range of colors that I can mix and match into different looks and pair with statement items. The blog “Sincerely Jules” is my fashion spirit animal.
If you could give 3 pieces of advice to someone starting out on Poshmark what would they be?
- Ask questions! If you’re confused on what to do, there are tons of women who are excited and willing to help introduce you to the community, address any questions you have, and give you constructive feedback to help you succeed.
- Cover photos are the best selling tools. You don’t have to be a creative genius to present your item in a clean and stylish way. Take some time to lie or hang your items on a plain background (lighter colors look best in my opinion) with good lighting, and boom! You’re done. Most of all have fun with it! Clear item/cover photos will get customers to gravitate to your closet.
- Share, share, share! The best way to get your start on Poshmark is to share other Poshers items and return the favor when someone shares yours. Sharing items other than your own will help you and other closets get noticed. It’s a win-win situation.
