Friday Five: StyleChat, Poshers in the News and Keeping Texts Real

1. We had so much fun talking about all things style on this week’s #StyleChat hosted by @StyleCaster. If you didn’t join, you missed some great gabbing over trends gone by – hair mascara! denim minis! – as well as how to dress for summer wedding season. Join us on Twitter next Wednesday at noon PST. And oh, by the way, you should totally follow us on Twitter and consider a warm-up. image

2. If you’re in the Las Vegas area, did you catch local Poshers on the news? Congrats to @poeticqueen and @bk212 and their now famous closets! Also check out Poshmark featured on the news in South Carolina.

3. Earlier this week we asked our influencers: stripes or florals? We’re seeing stripes at #PMHQ! But if florals are more your thing, check out our floral jacket showroom.

4. What’s better than getting goodies in the #PoshPost? When those goodies are all dressed up! Take note from @randilyn and send off your sold items in style.

5. And just for fun, fellow phone addicts, if auto correct were a truth filter for your texts.

Style Profiles: Our Boston Posh Party Hosts

These Boston babes know how to dress up polished, prep & oh so glam, and these four New England fashion bloggers are going to teach us how to wear dresses in our favorite prep and nautical styles!

If you absolutely fall in love with the fashion of our fabulous Boston hosts, be sure to join us for our “Polished, Prep & Glam” LIVE Posh Party from Boston this week. If you’re in the area, RSVP on Eventbrite today!

Check out how these ladies fashion a new appreciation for stripes:

THE “EYE CANDY” LOOK
Kara of “The Bostonista”

Barbie only wishes she had this dress! The lovely Miss Kara takes prep to a whole new level of feminine and wears pink head to toe, wearing a loud print with a softer shoe to break up the color.

image

THE “NAUTICAL BUT NICE” LOOK
Kristen of “The Boston Fashionista”

Kristen’s dress is the very picture of New England polished, and we just want to sail away on vacation in this dress.

image

THE “SOME LIKE IT FLORAL” LOOK
McKenna of “McKenna Bleu”

McKenna’s outfit proves that prep doesn’t have to be in Oxford blues and grays! She livens up her stripe with a bright yellow and florals galore, and we admire her style bravado!

image

THE “DOTTED DIVA” LOOK
Lynzy of “Sparkling Footsteps”

While stripes might be the queen of preppy print, polka dots are a refreshing new take on the trend. Both sweet and stylish, we can’t help but fall in love with Lynzy’s darling look, and don’t get us started on how much we love that hat.

See you soon, Boston!

Friday Five: Crazy Love!

From dancing to Beyonce to preparing for Denver, there’s no end to the amount of working hard and playing hard at PMHQ. Here’s another week of crazy lovin’ what we do:
