My Secret Addiction - POSHMARK





Awhile back I mentioned how I was in love with my iPad Mini. I've had my awesome little iPad for a little over a month and I can't get over the amount of apps I've discovered and enjoyed! Which leads into my secret addiction - POSHMARK. Before I go on, I do want to mention that what I am about to write is my own opinion. Poshmark did not ask me to do a post or was I compensated for this. 



Poshmark is a simple and fun way to buy and sell fashion. Shop the closets of women across America – and sell yours too!

Think of Poshmark like Facebook or Twitter - it's social media, connecting women with other women who LOVE fashion! Poshmark is a 100% mobile app that you can download on your iPhone, iPad, and even Android phones. Just take your closet online one picture at a time in an Instagram like fashion. Point and shoot with your camera phones on a Gucci bag you don't use or those shoes you don't wear anymore and in seconds it's available for the world to see and buy! 



There are 2 phrase  you will want to learn - "Bundle" and "Posh Party". When you shop another person's closet, more than likely you will want more than 1 item. You can ask the seller is she can bundle the products for you to receive a better price for the clothes. Once she bundles the items for you, all you have to hit is the Buy Now button. Shipping and handling will be figured into the price ($4.99 for purchase of $25 or more, $6.99 for anything less that $25). 



Posh Parties are virtual buying and selling parties that happen in the Poshmark app. You can browse, buy, and even list together with your friends. Popular listing and shopping themes include, Designer Handbags & Shoes and Cocktail Dresses. Poshmark also holds designer parties featuring brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Coach, and Michael Kors. 

So, yes I have an addiction! Every night before bed, I am either on my iPhone or iPad "shopping", "liking", or "following" other Poshers throughout the US. I'm not sure what it is - the idea of bargaining with others or the idea of making money that is causing my POSHMARK addiction. Check out some of the items I bought within the last week in the middle of the night:



Crazy, right? BUT... all negotiated down to less than $100 for all pieces! WINNING!!!! 

So, if you want to check it out, download the app on your phone and use my code so you can get $5.00 off your first purchase:

Don't forget to stop by my closet and follow me too:

Happy Poshing!!!!

  3. I'm glad you found a place you enjoy. :)

    I haven't seen an iPad mini in the flesh yet, glad to hear a positive endorsement. :)

  5. Oh I just have to get this when they offer it to International. I am 4'10" and it is IMPOSSIBLE to get petite sizes here for size 14. I buy from the US and have it sent to my family in the US when I go to visit.

    1. I feel you, Tracy! I lived in Asia for a bit myself. Although I am Asian, I'm a "healthy" Asian which means Large there was not Large in the US. I had to ask mom to buy me clothes to ship over too. LOL! I sure hope Poshmark goes international too! It's such an awesome app!

  6. I've actually been thinking about doing this for a while, so I'm kind of pumped for your endorsement. I'm also scared of what this new addiction will bring to my life (and take from my wallet). :-)

    1. Hi Lisa,

      It is such a must!! It did put a little dent on my wallet but I was able to sell some stuff too which helped. LOL!

  7. It's not on Android yet. :( I was hoping to use it to move some of these clothes before I make the cross-country move. Hopefully by year end!

    1. Hi April,

      it's kinda on Android but I HATE it! Too many advertising pushes. I had to delete it since I already had it on my iPad. You can log onto your computer or laptop but I don't think it will allow us to post pictures to sell items. I hope they fix that too.
