Influencer Spotlight: Jenny of Good, Bad and Fab

image
Today we have the pleasure of hosting Jenny – Posher and blogger at Good, Bad and Fab – on the blog as well as at PMHQ as she hosts tonight’s Fun and Fearless Posh Party. It’s one stop of her GBF Spread Joy Roadtrip that takes her from LA to Portland with a mission to find and share joy along the way.
Without further ado, a Q&A with Jenny!
image
Poshmark: You work as a fashion lawyer and also run a fashion blog, how have these two “fashion hats” impacted your personal style?
Jenny: It has completely shaped and changed my personal style! I now gravitate towards pieces that are versatile and can transition well from working in an office during the day to painting the town fab at night. Typically, I switch out key accessories like jewelry or shoes to dress the outfit up or down.
PM: Being so plugged into the world of fashion, where do you go for outfit inspiration?
J: My beautiful city of LA! Every sub-cluster has its own subculture and its unique fashion sensibility. I love people watching and soaking up the inspiration taking place on the concrete runaway.
image
PM: You’re hosting the Fun and Fearless Posh Party tonight, what’s your approach on fashion risks? What would you say to someone looking to grow their style?
J: I am all about taking fashion risks as fashion should be fun, experimental, and a reflection of your mood and personality. To ease into living style on the dangerous side, get your feet wet by incorporating one “risky” item into a safe outfit. For instance, you can wear a flashy statement necklace with a white tee and jeans. Or try on that crop top with a high waist skirt layered with a leather jacket.
PM: What kinds of items and trends would compel you to share as a Host Pick for this party?
J: I’m looking for items that are unique, fun, and really catches the eye. In terms of trends, I’m definitely loving summer florals, chunky colorful heels, and lots and lots of pastels!
image
PM: How would you describe your closet’s style? What are your favorite items?
J: My closet is a mashup of prints, colors, and styles. However, I’m without a doubt a girly girl at heart so dresses dominant my closet. My favorite items are my Dorothy red Gucci pumps as they were the first “I’m working! I got my first paycheck!” purchase. Another favorite is my white Miu Mu babydoll dress. The shape is so flattering and works with everything. I’d been pining for it for months before finally taking the plunge.
PM: Are you currently on the hunt for something specific on Poshmark? Any favorite Posh Finds?
J: I’m on the hunt for vintage earrings and rings. I love vintage jewelry as each piece tells a story. I found a pair of beautiful ruby chandelier earrings on Poshmark the other day and may just purchase it tonight at the party!
PM: Anything else?
J: I’m so excited to stop at the Poshmark headquarters tonight on my Spread Joy Road Trip and even more excited I get to host the party from there! This is going to be an amazing experience and I hope you’ll join me for the party!!! And please check out my blog to follow the Good, Bad, and Fab Spread Joy Road Trip! #GBFJoyRide

Attendee Spotlight: Jessica Flores of Domesticated Me

Poshers near and far are jetsetting across the country to attend PoshFest in Vegas, and social media has been buzzing about how excited they are about Poshmark’s first ever fashion festival. New York user and fashion and beauty blogger, Jessica Flores of Domesticated Me, shares the three things she’s most excited for at PoshFest:

1. I’m excited to meet my favorite Poshers in person. I’ve gotten to meet a great number of amazing, fashionable women on the app and it’s going to be incredible to finally see them face to face. This, of course, includes some of the brilliant Poshmark staff.
2. I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the ladies displaying their Poshfinds and Poshstyle. I know many of the attendees will be wearing items they’ve purchased (myself included!) and items they’re currently selling on the app. What a better way to showcase your pieces than live at the Poshmark convention!?
3. I’m thrilled to learn how I can become a better seller on Poshmark. I know I will come back to NYC with a better understanding of how I can grow my closet on all levels thanks to panels like “How to Build Relationships” and “Power User Tips & Tricks”. 
If you’d like to meet Jessica and other Posh influencer, it’s not too late to buy your ticket to PoshFest! Check out our Eventbrite page for more information.

THE “PRETTY & PUNK” LOOK
Cait of “Pretty & Fun”

Cait’s outfit teaches us that feminine florals don’t have to play nice all the time! You can layer with a leather jacket to add a little edge to your sweet style to create the perfect combination.

image

THE “SEXY IN THE CITY” LOOK
Aramide of “The Sassy Peach”

This sassy peach’s halter top look is both sleek and sexy while being demure and dainty with her knee-length skirt. You can make a neutral outfit pop with a sassy colored heel and fun top knot!

image

THE “GIRL ON THE GO” LOOK
Christine of “The View From 5 Ft 2”

This Zara skort is the blogger staple loved all over the fashionista world, but Christine makes it her own by choosing a red-hot color with a daring broad stripe print. Way to go, mini maven!

image

THE “LEATHER LUXURY” LOOK
Sierra of “Style on the Line”

City girls are known for rocking neutral ensembles, but Sierra takes it up a notch by adding a splash of fun and playfulness to her all-black look by wearing a graphic tee and eye-catching prints. Fierce.

See you soon, Chicago!

Host Feature & Style Crush: Naty of A Love Affair with Fashion

image

You might recognize her as natymichele, but to fans of her blog, she’s Naty and she has a love affair with fashion. The love that she has for her style is obvious in each and every single OOTD she takes, and we’re so lucky that she’s brought that same passion for clothes to hosting our Posh Parties, especially the one she’s hosting tonight!

We had a fashion-forward conversation with Naty about Poshmark and her personal love affair with her closet:

What is your favorite Poshmark purchase?

I got a pair of sneaker wedges that I absolutely love. I was looking everywhere for the perfect pair and was so happy that I found them on Poshmark!  

Where did you get the inspiration for your blog?

I was inspired to INSPIRE! I really wanted a new creative outlet and a way to share my personal style with other women in the hopes to inspire them.  I was slowly transitioning out of the music industry and felt that I was having an affair with fashion… hence the title of my blog.

If you were to name your style after a Posh Party theme, what would it be?

Probably Downtown Chic! My style is very chic but it also has an edgy twist.

What summer trend are you looking forward to?

I really love graphic prints, monochrome and white on white!  I’ve already been trying out these trends and putting my little spin on them. 

If you could shop from anyone’s closet who would it be and why?      

It’s so hard to just name one person. I’ll say Olivia Palermo and Kourtney Kardashian.  They’ve both got great style and have been some of my style inspirations.  Also, one of my favorite bloggers, Julie Sarinana, from Sincerely Jules.  I seriously love every single thing that she wears!
