Friday Five: Getting In The Spirit

Another week has flown by and we’re getting excited (per usual) because Halloween is just around the corner! Not only are we trying to plan out our costumes, but next week we’re planning on having a little pumpkin decorating party with the whole office—good times at PMHQ! With fall in full swing, and the holidays getting closer, we’re feeling a bit joyous and jolly! See what else has us smiling in today’s Friday Five:

1. Social Edge Summit: For those of you who follow us on Twitter, you may have seen that one of our co-founders’ and our VP of Marketing, Tracy Sun, spoke at the SE Summit Conference held in San Francisco. Not only did Poshmark meet and mingle with fellow entrepreneurs and companies, but we had to represent with our famous traveling photo wall! 

One of our favorite quotes from Tracy: “Mobile offers a different level of engagement. [Poshmark takes] it to a new level. You can discover in ways you couldn’t before.

2. Halloween Prep: It’s officially time to get in the Halloween(ie) spirit! We’ve been getting so much inspiration on how to fashionably decorate our office pumpkins, but this has to be one of our faves! What will you be doing to your pumpkins and, better yet, what are you dressing up as?!

3. Autumnal Inspiration: Yes, that’s tonight’s Posh Party theme, but we also have a slew of other fall fashion-inspired parties up ahead, including our “Jackets, Blazers & Layering Pieces” on Sunday evening! Be sure to get those scarves, boots, and sweaters ready to list!

4. Instahappy: Did you hear the news that Instagram @mentions now translate to Twitter if your handles are different? If that didn’t put a smile on your face, then this silly video might!

5. Support the Cause: One of the reasons we love what we do so much is because we get to meet so many talented people, both virtually on Poshmark and across our social media channels, as well as in-person. We met the super sweet Itchelita on Instagram, where she posts adorable pictures of her handmade bracelets and tons of fashion inspiration. When she recently sent us over these pink and silver bracelets in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we knew we had to share the love and encourage you to join us! Itchelita is donating 50% of the proceeds of this bracelet to the American Breast Cancer Association. Fashion for a cause? YES, PLEASE! 

Have a great weekend, Poshmarkers! See you on the app! xo

PMHQ: Throwback Thursday

We love reminiscing on the fun we’ve had over the last few months since we launched Poshmark, all the amazing people we have met across the country, Posh Parties we have thrown, and the laughter that came with it all. This is why we wanted to take this perfectly-appropriate day to do a little “Throwback Thursday” post!

Looking forward to many more fun memories with you!

Happy Thursday! xo!

Fall-ing In Love With October!

Can you believe it’s already the middle of October?! Neither can we (and we haven’t even started thinking of what to dress up as for Halloween!). But we’re definitely loving everything the gorgeous month of October is bringing along with it. Here are five things that have made us happy this week:

1. There’s a chill in the air! The weather in the Bay Area during this time of the year is a little unpredictable. One second we’re experiencing our long-overdue summer and the next moment the temperature calls for jackets and scarves. This week, we’ve definitely felt the latter—and are SO happy to dust off our faux fur, boots, and scarves and find new threads on Poshmark to fulfill our need to layer up!



2. Go Giants! While we’re on the subject of our hometown, we have to give a little shout-out to our favorite baseball team, the San Francisco Giants, for making it one step closer to the World Series. We’re not only impressed with their determination and teamwork, but we love the fact that we can continue to appropriately dress in orange and black!



3. Posh Party-It-Up kind of weekend! Not only are we beyond ready for tonight’s “Handbags, Shoes & Accessories” Posh Party (some of our personal favorites!), but we honestly can’t wait for tomorrow night’s party. Why? Because we get to channel our inner fierceness with you for our “Party Like a Rockstar” Posh Party! Bring on the leather, bling, and attitude, ladies!



4. Do blondes really have more fun? The answer is really up for debate, especially since most of our office is made up of brunettes, but we were all shocked—and in major awe—when the news hit the Internet that the gorgeous Erika Bearman, aka OscarPRGirl, turned her dark locks platinum blonde. This ambitious task took over twelve hours to complete and we can’t stop obsessing over her new look. Anyone else feeling inspired for a major makeover?



5. Thank you, new followers! We’re self-proclaimed social media geeks here in the office and get so excited each and every time we get a new follower on any of our accounts. Thank you for connecting with us, Tweeting us your latest Poshmark finds, and sharing your closets on Instagram!

PMHQ Picks

With the weather cooling down, the Poshmark Community team has been on the hunt for pieces to help us bundle up and look perfectly-polished this season. Check out what a couple of us are crushing hard on right now!

Ashlee’s Picks:

1. Olive Coat from Troppus tra’s closet – $23 retail $0

“It’s such a great color and looks so cozy! The best thing about this coat is the classic cut, making it a definite staple to any wardrobe.”

2. Vivienne Westwood Melissa Rain Boots from S’s closet – $110 retail $0

“These are the cutest rain boots I have ever seen. The simplicity of the gold buttons and the fact that they can be worn with almost any outfit makes them a must-have!”

3. Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Studded Satchel from Zoe’s closet – $395 retail $495

“You can never go wrong with a deep blue colored bag for fall. Not to mention the fact that it’s big enough to toss in a cardigan for when it gets chilly.”

Adiel’s Picks:

1. B.R. Leather Jacket from Liz’s closet – $130 retail $350

“This brand new leather jacket can make an entire fall wardrobe. The style is edgy, but the color makes it more feminine than the typical moto jacket. Wear it with skinny jeans and a scarf or over a dress and tights. The outfit possibilities are endless!”

2. Rock & Republic knee boot from Queen B’s closet – $90 retail $300

“Let’s face it: these never-been-worn Rock & Republic boots are HOT. The height, the studs, the dagger zipper, and the pointed toe…seriously drool-worthy. A perfect way to add a bit of edge to any ensemble.”

3. Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote from L’s closet – $193 retail $395

“The color ‘Oxblood’ is having a serious moment in fashion right now and this bag really feeds that craving for a fall hot color. The fact that it’s been found in the form of a Foley + Corinna Mid City? Even better!”

Happy Shopping!
