Wearing T by Alexander Wang top and Missoni skirt (All from Poshmark!)
I know I’ve been deviating away from my usual blog posting schedule. I hate to say this, but work is KILLING me. Really to the point that I even miss out on my regularly scheduled blog posting periods. It’s a sad, sad world out there–sorry for the melodrama, just feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.
In order to lighten up the mood, I want to talk about something important. Fun fact: I NEVER pay full retail price for my designer clothing. NEVER.
From my Celine sunnies to this get-up, all my designer pieces are either purchased at stores like TJ Maxx, found on eBay or through Poshmark.
While for a long period Poshmark was simply a way for me to not feel so guilty about adding to my closet, it’s now so much more. I will admit that it’s quite a hunt sometimes, but if insomnia gets you down, put yourself to good use late at night (like I do, obviously) and browse through some of your favorite designers on the app.
I scored this brand new T by Alexander Wang top for $25. My Missoni (nope–not the cheaper line!) skirt was $30.
If you’re feeling ready to take Posh by storm, here are my tips:
- Filter by your size (to an extent). While some people like to only see the size that fits them like a glove when browsing, I include one size up and one size down so I won’t miss a thing! Sometimes, it’s even worked in my favor.
- Be consistent. In order to find the good stuff, you gotta browse often. Sometimes I search looking for gold and end up with nothing. Other times, I’m incredibly lucky. You just have to see what’s out there.
- Brands brands brands. Make sure and use the ‘like’ button to give the brands you’re passionate about some love. This makes the whole browsing for gold thing so much easier.
