I'm really thrilled to be writing this post today, as I'm going to be sharing something with you that I'm extremely excited about! I was contacted by a new iPhone app called "Poshmark" which is a wonderful social media application which allows you to buy & sell all things fashion, to help host their first live posh party in Los Angeles, CA this Thursday, February 2nd! The best part about it, is that you are all invited to attend, whether it be in person at the event or virtually!
If you've watched my "Savvy Shopper" video, then you already know that I'm a major advocate for buying & selling items secondhand, and this app plays right into that for me. The great thing about it is that is specifically targeted to those individuals who are fashion minded like me & you, which helps narrow the pool and help your item actually get found & sold much easier than a major platform such as eBay. Don't get me wrong, there are so many incredible aspects to eBay, but as someone who has fairly frequently bought & sold on eBay, I know first hand that there is an overwhelming number of listings which sometimes can make it difficult locate items that you may be searching for, and for your item to get found by others. I have included further details down below, but for now I wanted to give you a preview of the items that I'm going to be listing for sale!
First up is this metallic maxi dress from Forever 21 (size S), which I have only worn one time, meaning that it's in great condition!
Here is a photo of how I styled this dress!
Such a gorgeous, glamourous piece!
Secondly is this great sequined jacket which I purchased from Asos (UK size 10/ US size 6) , but have never worn, so this is brand new! I absolutely love this piece but sadly it is far too cool toned to really flatter me!
Love the intricate embellishment, the awesome shoulder pads & overall look for this piece. Since I never actually wore this piece I don't have a photo to insert of myself, but I am going to be showing you the photo that was the inspiration for this purchase to help provide some style inspiration:

I really hope that you can all attend this Thursday, at least virtually and I hope to see some of you there! Please see some further details below in regards to the functionality of this app, along with information about the location of the event & how to RSVP!
