Get to Know Poshmark User Songya

image
There’s nothing we love more than getting up close and personal with our community! We recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Songya, getting to know all about how she discovered Poshmark, what her favorite places to shop are and her fashionista inspirations.

How did you find Poshmark?
My friend Olivia introduced me to Poshmark. She downloaded the app for me and forced me to do my first listing, a floral Forever 21 dress.

How do you package your sales? 
I steam all of my items first, even if they are clean. I’m not a great folder but I’ll fold my pieces nicely then I use brown craft-like paper to wrap them. They finally go in a bag with a note card.

Who are Poshmarkers you look to for inspiration?
I like the way Christina lays out her outfits; I browse her closet simply because it looks so nice! Lindsey has beautiful cover shots.

Where do you like to shop, besides Poshmark?
Big luxury retailers, but I’m not loyal to just one. A lot of Zara, cool pieces from F21, and Etsy for cool home goods.

Define your closet personal style.
Feminine, elevated, slightly edgy.

 How amazing are these hand drawn note cards she includes in all of her Poshmark packages? Obsessed. 
 

Where did you get your username?

It’s French, my boyfriend helped picked it. My username @magriffe means ‘my style’ ma=my Griffe=claw, which is slang for style 

What was your best purchase on Poshmark?
A tank top from Pamela; it was shredded, and I wore it all summer.
Thank you to Songya for hanging out with us! Be sure to check out her fabulous listings below, and stop by her closet today!

Meet Pamela: a rockstar Poshmarker from Seattle who loves to shop.

Whether it’s on Poshmark, at Nordstrom’s flagship store, or a variety of local boutiques, she’s all about it! If you peek into her closet, you’d find a whole lot of black, but Pam uses these pieces to achieve three signature styles: “clean and classy with an edge”, “drippy drapey” a la Rick Owens or Alexander Wang, or boho… and she totally rocks these well.

You can catch her Poshmarking anywhere from the road in her car (in the passenger seat, of course), in bed, on break at work, and even while shopping! Read on to see what else she has to say about her love for Poshmark and so much more!

Poshmark (PM): Why do you love Poshmark?

Pamela (P): There’s so many reasons I love Poshmark. One, it’s given me a reason not to let my closet go haywire. I can actually maintain my closet now. It’s a bit more manageable than it was last year before I started using the app. Two, I love stumbling across items I have missed in store or I am currently obsessing about, but know the fiancé would freak if I purchased that item at retail value. Lol. Three, it’s given me the opportunity to build new friendships with ladies who are just as obsessed with fashion as I am. And four, I get to see first hand how lovely people can be. I see closets on Poshmark that actually donate the earnings they receive to charities. I just think that’s fantastic!

PM: What was your favorite Poshmark purchase?

P: My Alexander Wang Rocco with all black hardware for $450! That was such a steal!

PM: As an amazing Poshmarker, what are some tips and tricks you would give to new community members?

P: Covershot and description are everything! Always make sure the pictures are clear and thoroughly describe the item. Don’t describe the items as “pink shirt” or “black shoes” Look at it this way, would you buy something at an online shop that describes items in that manner. Also, SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! Share your items and share others. I know some ladies have shared my items and out of curiosity I’d start filtering through their closets and I’d find items that I would end up purchasing. Make sure to play nice; this is like owning your own shop. Ladies remember who wasn’t easy or nice to work with. Just like that 100 other Poshers know about you—and not in a good way. Finally, just have fun! This app was made to sell and buy and build new friendships!

Host Feature: Ghost Hunters’ Amy Bruni

You might recognize power Poshmarker Amy Bruni from SyFy’s Ghost Hunters. However, there is a lot more to Amy than just seeking spirits in haunted spaces! This “Massifornian”—Amy’s term for Nor-Cal native living in Boston—is also a new mom and fashionista with a keen shopping eye!

With a closet full of goodies from Anthropologie, Joie, Tory Burch, J.Crew, Frye, and more, we’re thrilled that Amy is opening up not just her wardrobe, but a little bit more about her life beyond paranormal investigating. Read on to find out more about Amy and be sure to tune into her Casual Cool Posh Party tonight at 7pm!

Poshmark (PM): How did you discover Poshmark?

Amy (A): I think I found it when someone I was following on Instagram posted their closet. I was like, “Oh no, what is this and why don’t I know about it?! I’m one of those people who is constantly rotating clothes, so Poshmark is perfect for me. The environmentalist in me loves Poshmark too, because I love giving a second life to designer fashion, rather than always buying new.

PM: Where do you Poshmark the most? At home? On the go?

A: EVERYWHERE. Oddly, I’ll find myself awake in the middle of the night, scrolling through Poshmark. When we’re working and have downtime, I’m scrolling through Poshmark. If I’m on a plane with WiFi, Poshmark.

PM: How do you decide what to wear for an investigation? Do you have a go-to outfit?

A: I almost always wear Converse or my Frye 12R Harness boots with skinny jeans—Hudsons or Citizens—and a tee of some sort. I’ll try to liven it up with jewelry, but anything too loud and the sound guy yells at me—haha! Sometimes I’ll throw on a vest or fun sweater, but it’s filmed in IR so very little of what I wear is even noticeable – which is so sad to me! I’ve definitely become known for my scarves. I wear scarves all year round, they’re an easy way to liven up an outfit and I figured that out quick on the show.

PM: Do you get to shop while you’re on the road with the TAPS team?

A: Yes! Too much! I always look for funky vintage stuff on the road. My favorite is this great vintage wrap skirt with a whole forest scene and deer on it. It looks like something from Anthropologie, but I found it in a vintage store in North Carolina for ten bucks.

PM: As an experienced traveler, can you share any tips for packing light and stylish?

A: Good jeans are your best friend; you can never spend too much on premium denim. Bring two pairs plus lots of tops and jewelry and a killer pair of heels, and you’re ready for anything. My bags are always stuffed with bulky work clothes with a little section of stylish stuff in case we have time for fun. I wear so many dresses, so I always roll up a couple and bring them along, too.

A huge thank you to Amy for hanging out with us, and be sure to tune into her “Casual Cool” Posh Party tonight in the app!
