A Posh Recap of 2013

Goodbye, 2013!

It’s been one fabulous year filled with fashion, glitter and our ahh-mazing Poshmark community. We had so many wonderful firsts – from Poshmark on Android to jetsetting to Vegas for PoshFest to our shiny new Showrooms feature – that 2013 is the year to remember. To top it all off, we celebrated our 2nd birthday at PMHQ and across the country with the ladies who made it possible: our community.

Here’s to another app-solutely stylish year!

PoshFest 2013: The Best of PoshStyle

There was so much style at PoshFest that we had a hard time picking just nine looks from the weekend in Vegas. We hope that you’ll enjoy all the sparkle, prints and sassy tees (because we sure did) and continue to share how you style your favorite Poshmark purchases on Instagram!

Don’t forget! This is the last week to enter our #POSHSTYLE Instagram Giveaway for a chance to win $50 in Posh Credits! Just be sure to follow our Instagram and use the #POSHSTYLE hashtag before next Monday 12PM PST! So start snapping your way to a whole new outfit!

Network with Style: Tips for PoshFest 2013

image

PoshFest is not only a great opportunity to learn how to take your closet to the next level, meet Team Posh and Posh Party the night away – it’s the perfect event to build your professional and social networks and make connections that will last you beyond the weekend.

We definitely believe that building relationships matter when it comes to your closet (and life in general). Here are a few tricks and tips for networking with style:

1. Come prepared. In networking events, you meet so many faces that it’s hard to remember everyone you meet, and business cards are the perfect way to leave an impression that lasts. Don’t have your own personalized business card? Poshmark and Moo.com have teamed up to offer you 100 FREE (yes, that beautiful word) mini business cards – available for pick-up at PoshFest! The only thing you have to pay for is $3 shipping! Hurry – this offer only lasts until October 13 11:50PM EST!

2. Share your Posh story. Don’t know what to say at networking events? At PoshFest, women from across the country and all walks of life are coming together to share their common love for Poshmark, and they want to know your Posh story! It’ll definitely spark tons of other conversations!

3. Follow up, ladies! The only way to build lasting connections beyond Vegas is to follow up with your new friends. Shoot them an email, say hi on Instagram, or of course send a nice little comment on Poshmark! 

With a little patience and a lot of Posh love, these connections might last you a lifetime. If you want to make new Posh BFFs in Vegas, get your ticket for PoshFest 2013 on our Eventbrite page.

PoshFest Essentials with Kate of @wearinla

Blogger darling and power Posher Kate of Wear in La is not only writing a guest post on our blog today, but she’s also joining us at PoshFest as a panelist – sharing all her fashionable tips and tricks for marketing yourself in the virtual world. If you want to join Kate for PoshFest, get your tickets on Eventbrite!

Let’s find out what Kate’s bringing to Vegas:

From the minute I heard about the amazing idea of having a huge live Posh Party in Vegas, I have excitedly been asking myself (and all my Posh friends) the same question over and over again: “What in the world am I going to wear?!” I’m the kind of girl who packs too much, doesn’t get around to wearing nearly half of it and ends up having too much to even care! This time around, I’m planning my outfits ahead of time to minimize luggage and keep myself focused on having a great time and working hard!

In lieu of keeping things simple, I chose a color palette and plan to stick with it so that everything can be interchangeable (you can save so much room in your suitcase if you pick items that mix and match well). For PoshFest 2013, I’m sticking to the oh-so-trendy basics of black and white with a couple pops of color! A classic little black dress can get you through any situation – dinner, drinks, dancing, conference – you name it! Neutral nail polish, such as a nude or silver sparkles, will go with everything – it’s a good idea to consider your wardrobe color palette and choose a polish that meshes well.

Now let’s get down to business – your Posh closet that is! PoshFest is going to be the number one event this year where you can network, learn, and grow your business on Poshmark. Remember to bring your iPhone or iPad, perhaps a notepad, and of course your business cards! Lucky for you and me, Poshmark has offered 100 free custom cards to each attendee to get us jumpstarted!

Since PoshFest is a two-day event with workshops and panels going all day long, it’s important to have everything you need for the day with you in an easy-to-carry tote. In between speaking on the Marketing Panel, learning new strategies for networking and meeting new Posh friends, I will be fabulously toting around my iPad/iPhone with chargers, a little notebook (yea, I’m still a little old school like that!), business cards, extra pens, perhaps a pair of fold-up flats (you never know…sometimes heels can just be a little too much!) and some basic beauty touch-up products (i.e. lipstick, travel hairspray, bobby pins, and the like). I’m the kind of girl who comes prepared for anything – you just never want to be caught without when you’re in need!

In all my excitement for PoshFest, I have been sharing the Posh love like crazy, encouraging girls to keep on selling and earning towards the trip! I’ve even curated a “PoshFest Essentials” list in my own closet of items that are Vegas-worthy listings up to 20% off. It’s not too late to buy your PoshFest tickets – I so look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

I would love to hear how everyone else is prepping for PoshFest. Share your packing secrets and what you’re going to wear with us here and on Instagram (@poshmark & @wearinla)!

Let’s get this PoshParty started! Vegas, here we come!
