ALL THE SNAKESKIN

I just realized something. The last two items I purchased through Poshmark were both snake patterned. Maybe the tides are turning from my leopard obsession.

This J.Crew Collection blouse is the favorite top in my closet at the moment. I wear it at least once a week. I don’t know what this top would have originally been, but I bought it for $42.00. I had credit on Poshmark from selling clothes I no longer wear and so I ended up only paying around $28.00 out of pocket.

My sister has put me on to French Sole New York (FSNY) shoes. She wears them to work and can walk through the city comfortably. I do a good bit of walking on uneven surfaces and since being on crutches, my usual heels are no longer an option. In addition to a black pair of FSNY shoes purchased this year, I bought these snake skin flats for $45.00. Again, I had credit from my own Poshmark sales so I only spend about $15.00 out of pocket.

I absolutely love being able to trade in things I never wear for fresh new items!

POSHMARK HAUL

I haven’t really gone shopping in the traditional sense or ordered much of anything online in a while. I have picked up a few nice pieces from Poshmark.

  • J. Crew Sequin Dress – Purchased for only $40. My sister is getting married and I plan to wear this to one of the parties leading up to the wedding.
  • J. Crew Jacket – I purchased this jacket for only $40! It was in perfect condition.
  • J. Crew Brown Slingbacks – I have a beautiful Teri Jon formal dress that I haven’t been able to wear in years because I didn’t have shoes to go with it. Problem solved! I scored these gently worn heels for only $10!
  • Michael Kors Heeled Sandals – These have been on my liked list on Poshmark for some time. When I saw that they were reduced, I pounced. Such a classic and timeless look.
  • Tory Burch Top – I LOVE this top. It is cotton on the front and has a patterned silk on the back.
  • Tory Burch Navy Minnie Flats – I paid $250+ for my other pair of Minnies and was over the moon that I could pick up a pair second hand for only $56! I wear these almost every day.

SECOND HAND SCORES

When I lived in Ireland as a child, my mother had to explain to me that not everyone appreciated second hand items. She said the Irish were a proud people and even those who may not have much at all might not wish to receive second hand clothes, books, etc. That was so foreign to me. As one of three (American) children we passed everything up and down and when we outgrew things we shared them with family friends. I never turned up my nose at second hand clothes and feel that i am fortunate to be able to share clothes and shoes with my mother, sister, grandmothers, great aunts and distant cousins and the sharing goes in all directions. Just because we no longer enjoy something doesn’t mean that someone else may not find joy in it.

I even enjoy buying second hand on eBay and Poshmark.
You never know what treasures you will find!

This week I have been flat on my back recuperating from an ankle injury and I have had plenty of free time to play around online and it has gotten me into a bit of trouble. I have been pouring over listings on eBay and Poshmark and have gotten some closet refreshing items for a bargain.

It all began with these Stubbs & Wootton espadrille wedges. I found them on Poshmark and purchased them for a song! They look like they have never been worn and I will enjoy them for ages. Of course, I have to let my ankle heal first.

Next purchase was this beautiful blazer from J.Crew.

This Regent blazer is so flattering and I now own 3 of them! I purchased a gold one on Poshmark a while back and have worn it endlessly. I just purchased a brand new white linen blazer during a sale and now have this black one to balance them out.

My third purchase was these Franco Sarto slingbacks. I picked up a pair of these about 4-5 years ago at TJ Maxx and wore them until they completely fell apart. I had them repaired by a shoe shop once and then let them go when they fell apart the second time. I have missed these shoes terribly and was over the moon when I found a never been worn pair on eBay. They are simple and cheap and I LOVE THEM. I think these were a spoof on a pair of Kate Spade cork slingbacks that came out around the same time. Real deal or not, it’s a good look.

POSHMARK PURCHASES

I am more obsessed with Poshmark than ever.

You can sell your own clothes and buy lightly used clothes on the cheap cheap cheap! It’s like trading in your closet for a whole new wardrobe. I have recently purchased some really wonderful items. In addition to these shoes and this top, I have purchased a Tory Burch top, a J.Crew Blazer, and a J.Crew Cashmere sweater.

The Tory Burch top was new with tags for only $45.00! The buttons were still wrapped in tissue paper. I am so so so in love with that top and have already worn it a bunch.

The J.Crew Blazer was new without tags and the pockets were still sewn shut when I got it. This BEAUTIFUL blazer was only $50.00!

The J.Crew cashmere sweater was only $7.00 on final sale from the “Posher” and it was a major score!

The shipping prices are super reasonable also which is awesome. If you haven’t tried Poshmark before, you need to check it out! Check out my Poshmark closet!
