I forgot to mention one of my recent Poshmark purchases on my last post.
This beautiful silk top by J. Crew was only $19.00!
It is perfect under a black blazer or on its own with a pair of black slacks. I wear it to work all the time.
Seriously. If you haven’t checked Poshmark out yet, you need to.
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.
It’s been a month or so since I posted about my Poshmark finds, so let me get you caught up.
J.Crew Cabled Cashmere Sweater $18.00
Jack Rogers Nude Sandals $74.00
J.Crew Tweed Jacket $40.00
Summer is a great time to buy winter clothes because they are all on sale! I am always keeping my eye out for the reduction notices on Poshmark for additional savings.
My go to Jack Rogers sandals finally kicked the bucket last week after having been resoled twice and so it was time for a new pair. I found these never been worn Jacks for only $74! That’s a savings of about $30.00. Not bad!
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.
If you haven’t tried Poshmark before, check out my page. I buy as well as sell.

For some reason, I have a hard time letting go of scarves. This includes scarves I have never worn or have only worn once. I don’t even wear scarves that often and cannot explain this attachment. I am finally letting go of a few and will be parting with more soon.
These four scarves are available for purchase through my Poshmark page. I haven’t worn any one of them more than a few times and they are all machine washable and in excellent shape! Check them out now!
Not only has my “new” job changed my footwear needs, I wear less statement necklaces these days. Also, because I had my earrings worked on, I wear them just about every day and am letting go of some really great every day earrings. Check out these items and more by visiting my Poshmark page!
