How to be Fashionable on a Poshmark Budget

Hey divas it’s the season when we start racking up our sweaters, cardigans boots all the fall and winter weather. We all know winter fashion can be expensive. But I have a severed that will blow your mind.

I have cut back on buying clothes and only purchasing the things I need or or…. if there are items that I find for super cheap that I just can’t resist. Hey why not! Well the truth is Poshmark has been my best friend for the past couple of months.

Poshmark is an online thrift store for new and used items. You can shop anything from shoes, clothes, accessories to house hold items don’t forget kids and men’s items. Once you’re signed up familiarize yourself with the app. Figure out how to like and bundle items from sellers closets. Also there’s an option to offer the seller a cheaper price for their item/items. Don’t forget you can also sell your gems and use the earnings towards another purchase or cash out your earnings.

I like to search for brands that I know the quality will hold up of used. My top searches recently include Michael Kors, UGG, Zara, J Crew, and Goodnight Macaroon just to name a few. Many sellers have brand new items discounted. I have racked up many new items for as low as $10 that is regularly $60.

If you are going to purchase used sweaters or shoes make sure you ask to see a close up of the sweater from the seller. Sweater tend to get those little knot balls this can tell you the condition the sweater is in and if it’s worth the price the seller is asking for it. For shoes if used ask to see the bottom and inside of the shoes if not already posted.

If you’re paying for a used name brand item you’re going to want to get this as close to new and in the best condition for the best price. Do not purchase the first item you see hit the like button and keep searching. There are usually 3-5 listings of the same item you’re looking at. Some will be new and used. Please note that some sellers do post junk and are just trying to get money. If there are stains scratched etc or of the soles and inside of the shoes look totally worn purchase at you’re own digression. This is the same for any clothes.

The fun about Poshmark you as a seller can name your own price with your items and as a buyer you can bargain with the seller!

Now let’s get into this outfit! So… this entire outfit is from Poshmark except the blazer. This lovely ruffle tulle from sweater is from the loft. The seller said she had only worn once and to be honest there were no signs of it being worn. I was able to snag this sweater for only $10. These plaid pants are from Topshop only worn once. The material is a thick Cotten and are high waisted. I love these beauties are they fit perfectly and are great for fun or work! I purchased these pants for $11. In my eyes the real steal are these faux leather Michael Kors sneakers. I feel like I stole these lol no but I only paid $20 for these brand new!! What a steal. I was beyond excited. My military olive green blazer just adds the perfect pop to this outfit. I got this beauty form New York and Company for only….. $9 on clearance. You know I love a good deal.

So when it came down to it I technically only paid $41 for this entire outfit. Keep in mind you will have to pay for shipping not unless the seller offers you discounted or no shipping. The best thing to do is to ask the seller for discounted shipping or no shipping. If you don’t ask you may never know!

Oh yes yaull asked for my hair to be big well the humidity was disrespectful to my hair lol. So boom I served this Poshmark look with my wild hair.

Happy Hump Day and stay fashionably cheap!

Hot Pink Passion

Divas,

Today in Emanees Closet is this simple day look, that can be worn around the town or to work. Because its so hot I felt like adding pops of color that would make me glow! So lets dive right into the goodness.

Hot Pink Blouse: I purchased this pretty pink blouse at Ross. Divas I am telling you I used to not like Ross but it’s my new  best friend. So I tried it and low an behold Boom Bang.. I was in Fashion heaven!! But back to this Cherry Hot pink Blouse I purchased this item for $8.99 it is a light weight material that is a bit sheer. I recommend wearing a camisole or some sort of light weight tank underneath. Like said we are Classy not Trashy! there is a small slit in the back that add a bit of flare to this blouse.

Pants: The pants are from H&M I purchased the pants for $30.00 in the career section. Divas this pants fit my like capow! The are light weight cotton material and are true to size! H&M clothing does fit small just keep that in mind! There is a bit of a flare on the bottom of the pants that allow you to pair these with flats, sandals and heels.

Their items are usually 39.95. Check on their website for the 4th of July sale! I am sure they will have another awesome sale. The heel height is 4″ and is very comfortable. It has an ankle strap that is adjustable along with two front straps. I love this shoes because it have reds, greens, yellows, blues, purple and pink all mixed in. It allows me to wear any solid color while the shoe adds that pop of color to the whole outfit

Accessories: 

  • Purse: The purse was purchased from Charming Charlie on clearance for $14.99. This purse can still be founding stores and online. They have actually made this purse in more colors. It comes with a strap that can turn the bag into a side satchel. The inside is big enough for your wallet, phone, lipstick and a pair of sunglass. I love the small little locket detail on the front of the bag. this bag is light weight and great for summer looks. Charming Charlie Purse
