Everyone knows that shopping is more fun with friends and that’s exactly what makes Poshmark so special–it’s all of the PFFs you meet. Today we’re sharing the story of two women, Natalie (@costumebaldor) and Shannon (@windandwillow), who met through a transaction on Poshmark, became fast friends, and met for the first time in person at PoshFest! Now that’s true #PoshLove! Read on to hear all about it straight from these ladies!
How’d You Meet?
Natalie: Shannon and I met on Posh! She bought a gold skull necklace from me last March. We would chat now and again through listings and commenting great finds. Then we started talking more and more. Now we text daily and chat on the phone too! The first time we met in person was in LA for PoshFest.
Shannon: I joined Poshmark in March of 2016. My first closet crush was @costumebaldor. I would browse her closet daily to see what amazing new pieces she had. There was a gold skull necklace that I just had to have. Several weeks after my purchase, I left Natalie a comment telling her how much I loved the necklace. We started chatting on Poshmark, then Instagram. This grew into daily texts, phone calls, and a trip to LA. We met in person for the first time at PoshFest 2016. We even added a few extra days to our vacation!
How does Poshmark play a role in your relationship?
Natalie: Aside from being responsible for us meeting, Posh plays a big part. We can bounce ideas off one another; as two active Poshers, this is awesome! We can relate to one another on a business and daily level too since Posh is not only for selling but also social engagement. We help and support one another on and off Posh.
Shannon: Without Poshmark I would never have met Natalie. She is such an inspiration. She is a mentor and friend. I had zero retail experience prior to Posh. Natalie was willing to share her knowledge and experience. She even helped me format my spreadsheets. We send photos of potential purchases and are constantly brainstorming new ideas and goals. Our friendship has grown beyond Posh. We send each other gifts, started a book club, and take on workout challenges. We are there for each other through all the ups and downs of life.
What does #PoshLove mean to you?
Natalie: #PoshLove means sharing! Not just from the feed but awesome finds, introducing new Poshers to my PFFs and always being active with any questions or comments I get. People feel #PoshLove when they know someone is on the other side to answer, have fun, and care!
Shannon: Poshmark is such an incredible community. #PoshLove is truly wanting to help others succeed, as well as achieving your own goals. Sharing, welcoming new members, participating in parties, it’s all part of what makes Poshmark so amazing. I love meeting new Poshers and finding creative and unique closets.
What are ways you two show #PoshLove to each other?
Natalie: We tag one another in parties, share one another’s closets and tag one another in must have items (because as much as we try not to, we shop on Posh, a lot)! We’re also friends on a day to day level. We celebrate one another’s birthdays, plan trips to NYC, PoshFest 2017, and Oregon, and know how to make the other laugh. We know each other’s moods and style. We support one another when life happens too with work, relationships…
Shannon: We share each other’s closets, tag one another in great finds, and introduce each other to fellow Poshers. Natalie has amazing taste. I asked her to help style me for LA. She found me so many fantastic pieces. I finally had to set a Posh budget! We’re planning a few trips together this year and can’t wait for PoshFest 2017! Natalie is absolutely my closest friend. She is the person I turn to when I have exciting news or need support.

Shannon: I would choose the NEW Statement Necklaces Posh Showroom to find a fantastic gift for Natalie. She has the most gorgeous triangle necklace and her fashion motto is more is more!
