HOW TO HOST A POSHMARK POSHPARTY

I’m so dumb, I released this video on how to host a Poshmark poshparty yet never did a blog post, so sorry guys! Anyway, I made this video to give all the additional information that I needed when I was hosting a poshparty! Please tag any new hosts and direct them over to this video OR to this blog post.

There are a few details that I had to cut out just for time sake so I’ll just be adding them here.

1) If you are sharing from the beginning of the party up to the end, the host picks stack up from bottom to top. So all your earlier shares go to the bottom and all the items to the end of the party go to the top. So you can put yours at the top so they’re first seen by whoever clicks on the Host Picks Category later on after the party.

2) You can share up to 75 – 100 listings and 5-10 can only be from your own closet, and 3 max from one closet other than yours.

3) Make sure you promote your POSHPARTY!! Set up a new listing on Poshmark telling everyone on the app, also if you have Instagram, Twitter, Facebook make sure you market on those platforms too!

That should be all that I was missing in the video, make sure to subscribe to the channel HealthyGirlTV I am still giving away the Kate Spade Earrings to one lucky girl (or guy) who subscribes by Valentines Day 2015, and I will be posting up a blog to announce who the winner is! I really need peeps to subscribe, I need about 10,000 subscribers to use the YouTube Space in LA so your help is much appreciated and any additional person you bring to the channel you get one extra name in the raffle!

HOW TO GET MORE INVENTORY FOR YOUR CLOSET

Hey everyone! Happy 2015! Thank you all for the amount of support you’ve given me this past year, I started my blog at the beginning of 2014 and its grown so much! I also started HealthyGirlTV on Youtube so I am so excited about all the new videos I have lined up for the rest of the month. Today I wanted to just do a quick blurp just about shopping!

Are you addicted as much as I am to selling on Poshmark? As a seller, in order to have product to sell, you need product to buy. You do have your own clothes, and quite possibly a family member or two, but even then, some people aren’t that keen on handing over their designer goods to you with not much but a promise that you’ll pay them.

So how can you add more inventory to your closet? Well here some ideas to help you get your juices flowing!

consignment

1. Consignment – Selling an item for someone for a commission. (Typically best when selling high end designer goods)

Just so you know the difference between consigning and resell is that with consigning there is less of a gamble on your end. It’s a bit safer of a process, but the payoff isn’t as much (that’s why go with high end designer goods). With consignment, you are selling the items for someone. So like the example I stated earlier, selling items of family members, you can do that and charge a commission as it sells. That’s what I do and the clients I have range from family members to a few co-workers. At the time when I was just starting out, I would list everything that I could that belonged to anyone just to get the attention of my closet. When you decide to do something like this, make sure that you keep paperwork and stay on top of everything, money, sales, how much you owe. It’s really important that whoever you are selling for, they are made aware of what’s going on with their items and when they get paid. I do this now and I have to stay incredibly organized to keep from re-paying people or not giving them enough. Pros to this: the more items that sell, the more money you get, the more items in your closet, the more attention your closet gets! Cons: When people give you stuff to sell for them, they give you EVERYTHING. So make sure to be choosey on what’s going in your closet because having to take a bunch of cover shots and adding descriptions on items that are only going to sell for $5 isn’t a good payoff.

2. Resell – Buying something with the intent of reselling it for more.

Resell is a bit different. I dabble in this because with resell, you are completely buying something JUST to resell it. This one is more of a gamble because you might buy something thinking it’s gonna sell, but could end up sitting on your closet the next few months before it gets sold. So if you do decide to do this, make sure that you are checking the market, search for the item in Poshmark and see how much people sold it for and how many of them have been sold. Really important, you want to be able to have items that can last a few months too. I typically go to TJ Maxx and Marshalls because they have amazing deals and I always, always, always search the clearance for whatever I can find that’s cheap and if I decide not to keep it, I’ll usually resell it. But this one time I actually bought this amazing designer case for an iPod that was something ridiculous like $2.00 and thought “I can resell it!”… well like everybody else, iPods came and went and I got stuck with an iPod case that I never ended up using, so good thing it was only a $2.00 lesson! Pros: If you find a stellar deal that you know you can resell it and make a profit on it, then buy away (ex. $2.00 leather kate spade stachel resell value at least will be $50). Cons: Like stated earlier, you might get stuck with a bunch of stuff people don’t end up buying!

3. Wholesale – Buying a bunch of clothes in bulk at a small price. (think Costco!)

This is one that I am not too familiar on but was thinking of expanding into it. There are a lot of women who have made 6 figures (that’s right count ‘em, SIX) on selling through Poshmark, but they do it by selling wholesale. One of them is the lovely Evelyn Jimenez (@ocposh30) who explains the benefits of selling wholesale, “The best part of selling wholesale is the profit you get double or something more…Reselling is you have to sell it for lower and maybe you might get what you paid for“. But as an added note, wholesale is another challenge because it actually requires a license to obtain. There is also much more paperwork involved in doing so, starting with setting up a business or an entity, then applying for a Tax ID #, then apply for a local business license, and lastly, applying for a business license in your state. Each state is different and the requirements are different but that’s the general jist of it.

Based on some of the information given at Poshfest 2014, the payoff is much greater when getting your wholesale license, because you work directly with distributors and can purchase as it sells. Some people like to purchase a few and keep in contact with the distributor so in the event the item sells out they can contact them to purchase more. You also have a great selection to choose from, like the fashion marketplace MAGIC. Evelyn says, “I normally go to Magic in Las Vegas there’s so much different clothing to choose fromIf you are a fashion retailer, MAGIC is a must-see buying destination that can’t be left off your calendar…” If you haven’t heard of MAGIC it’s pretty much a convention where you can purchase clothes at wholesale prices and have a huge variety of items to choose from and you can pretty much tailor your closet to look anyway you want it to. If you want more information you an find it here. Also here’s a video to tease your your thoughts:

Well I hope that this helps you on your journey to switching gears from just selling clothes out of your closet, to actually turning this into a full scale business. With Poshmark, you are working in a great marketplace where fashion is sold so the risks going into this are quite small. People are shopping for amazing clothing at great deals everyday so with a little creativity you yourself can be a #girlboss and be on your way to six figures!

Poshmark Haul

Sorry this came so late guys! But I’ve been bopping around the state of CA rushing to hit each family to spend some time with them over the holidays and I finally got a chance to sit down! This video comes at perfect timing especially during the Holiday season when we’re shopping and trying to find those last minute deals AND trying to sell to make up for the “one too many” J. Crew Necklaces found in your shopping bag!

So for those of you who are shopaholics and despite having to sell sell sell, and still can’t resist a good deal, then I have the perfect video for you! Sorry that all my blogs so far are videos but I hope that you enjoy them all!! They’re not easy to make…well in retrospect, they’re much easier than making a full feature film but still with a busy schedule like mine it gets really hectic!

This holiday season I hope you find yourself spending lots of cash not only on your family and friends but on yourself as well. This is a great time of the year to make some pretty sweet deals, people need to get rid of stuff so negotiate away! I did and as you’ll see in the video I made out with some pretty good stuff. I hope you do too, I mean who can resist some great Louis Vuitton or some CHANEL?! Especially on the cheap! Enjoy guys!

Holiday Party Outfit

This year I decided to go all out in a new way for this holiday season, healthy girl style. I had to attend two holiday office parties this year that were fantastic in their own ways. I needed an outfit that would be pretty versatile to wear day and night, as well as comfortable to wear all day since I had to go from Santa Monica to Newport beach in one afternoon. Plus it really needed to fit the holiday theme since it is December and I really wanted to sparkle. So thankfully I found my absolutely gorgeous Silk Chiffon BCBGMAXAZARIA Silver Sequin Flutter Sleeve Blouse (that previously belonged to my sister…thanks Kyla!). My Silence + Noise Blazer, some black leggings, and my trusty Michael Kors Pumps (That I got for a steal at TJ Maxx) to do the trick. Side note: I hate wearing heels, especially ALL DAY and on concrete, but I don’t know what it is about Michael Kors, but I can literally wear ANY Michael Kors heels and I feel like I’m walking on pillows! So do yourself a favor and invest (heavily) in some Michael Kors shoes, you can thank me later. So back to the story: I really needed to make a quick decision because I had 4 minutes to get ready too, since I was running the risk of coming in late, so I threw a sock bun on my head and shoved all my make up in the car and I was off!! So check out the results, I don’t think I did too bad myself, and I had my trusty Photographer Charlie Hatley available to get some shots of me in the Golden Hour after our feast at The Lobster on the Santa Monica Pier.

So this holiday season enjoy all the eggnog and holiday drinks, and remember, don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do (and that’s not much! lol) Feel free to tag me on Pinterest it would be much appreciated!
