What’s a Poshmark Follower?

In a plain simple equation: follower = someone who follows your closet.

This is a user who will be notified when you add a new item, share, & like a listing. They ‘follow’ your activity on the app. Now what does this mean?

more followers you have = more eyes on your closet = more sales = more $

You want to have more followers because the chance of your item’s being seen is much higher and an overall sales increase. If you are in need of followers check out my blog post here on How To Get More Followers.

My 10 Minute Beauty Ritual

I don’t dooooooo make up. But knowing that I have to look my best everyday it’s been kinda hard to get myself to drag my butt out of bed and into my face. So as of recently I’ve been giving myself just the BARE minimum as to what would be quick and easy to use everyday but will not take me over 10 mins to do.

Hey now, I need the full look! So I came up with an easy 5 step solution to get this look without breaking the ‘Time Bank”. I call it “EEBBH”

E- Eyes

E- Eyelashes

B- Brows

B- Blush


Now this is MY beauty ritual, for me it’s best that I highlight these 5 items and for some of you out there that don’t need to spend the time on brows but would like to do lips, then please by all means do so. However unless you wake up and your hair is on fleeeeeeek you bess believe that you will keep hair on this docket!


For me, eyes are simply just that…I put in my contacts. I actually need them to see so if you don’t suffer from blindness like me, then you can opt for moisturizer or a base for your face.



If you don’t dabble in the art of eyelashes, you should really start. I’ve been using Velour Lashes ($23) as of late. I love the way they just sit on your eyes and they last forever. I think I purchased 1 pair and I’ve already used them over 20 times! It’s a pretty good value!

image1xlAlso If you’re looking for an amazing lash, these were the ones I used on my wedding day in Paris. They last forever and they’re a bit more inexpensive as well! Eylure Definition Lashes – No. 123 ($9.85)


Dem Brows Doe. I probably couldn’t shape my brows as perfectly, and as easily without Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Pomade and Brow Powder. When applying, I always use the Duo Brush #12 and it makes it so much easier to use.



If you don’t know how to get your brown on fleeeek right quick, then check out this video by Anastasia Beverly Hills:



I guess you can say I’m a creature of habit. I’ve always used Bobbi Brown Blush ($28) every since my mom got it for me, so I’ve just stuck with it. But something about blush always makes me and my fair skin just feel a bit like I have some color without going overboard on the make up. Just a light touch of color and I’m ready to go! You can always sub this out for contouring, I do that too when I have an extra 5 mins but what I use is Anastasia Contouring Powder Kit ($40).


Now I read somewhere that “Your hair is your weapon“. No truer words to live by! So I make sure to sharpen that weapon everyday with at least something. Even if it’s a tiny pony tail, I’ll curl my bangs. But messy buns, or hair clips don’t count for me. When you have good hair, confidence will ooze out of you. So take 2 minutes, and make ’em heel!



Top 5 Airplane Necessities

The holidays are coming up it’s a hot time for travel! I never thought that I would be the type of person that would need to fly home for Thanksgiving, but it’s crazy where life you. A California girl dropped right in the north central part of the country and dreaming of blue California skies. But before I get there I have a few favorites that I take along with me before I fly.

Now I would like to say that I’ve become a bit of an expert at travel. I’ve had a job that requires me to travel as well as been very for fortunate to have been given opportunities to travel internationally and sat in every class. So after traveling so much, I’ve compiled a small list of the absolute 5 things I cannot travel without.

5) Chanel Hydra Beauty ($50)


I don’t know what it is about airplanes but it makes my lips crack like….crack. Also I have a bad habit of peeling my lips when they’re chapped, but thankfully I have my lip balm to remedy almost instantly. I love this Chanel lip balm ($50) and worth every stinkin’ penny. I was out buying lipstick when the Chanel rep added this on my lips 30 seconds before applying the lipstick and my lips were instantly moist and plump. Do your DSL’s a favor ladies and try this stuff out!

4) Memory Foam Travel Pillow ($20)


If you’re planning on doing any kind of long haul trip or even wanting to catch some Zz’s while you’re in flight, this pillow will change your flight from lame to lux! No matter what cabin you’re in this pillow will change the way you make travel sleep. If you’re in first class this makes your flat bed all the better, but if you’re in coach, throw your back pack or duffel on top of your tray table and lay this bad boy on top. Hands down best sleep you’ll ever have in economy!

3) Hydro Flask Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle ($37)


I cannot leave my house without this bottle. My mother in law gave these out as gifts one Christmas and I’ve held on to it ever since. On every trip that I’ve had this little bottle is a life saver on many occasions. It’s quite large in size but they have several different options to choose from. The best thing about this bottle is that it keeps it’s hot contents hot and cold contents cold for a very long period of time. I left this water bottle filled with ice in the car all day in 100 degree weather and at the end of the day there was still ice in it. It’s magic! Buy one and you’ll thank me later!

2) New Trent PowerPak+ (149.99)


I’ve probably saved myself a few hours of pure boredom if I didn’t have my New Trent to keep my devices alive. It takes forever to charge all the way, which is a downer but I have charged pretty much my iPad/ iPhone 6/ Sony A6000/ Ryan’s Phones & Ipad all on one charge of this bad boy. So on those long days of travel with 3 stopovers and you don’t arrive until 6Am the next morning, this keeps your devices from dying out on you.

1) Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones ($299)

71hI5ryJedL._SL1500_If you’ve never tried these, I suggest you run your ass to a BOSE store to give this a try. I absolutely will NOT enter a commercial airline without these bad boys. This is the best investment I’ve made for my travel and I suggest you do so as well. I spent an 11 hour flight from FRA (Frankfurt, Germany) to DTW (Detroit, MI) and sat in a cacophony of screaming crying babies. Once I bought these and turn them on and play my music, I can’t even hear us take off. Put these on you x-mas wish list or petition for a group gift because you will never fly the same again!


The 411 on Poshmark’s Rating System 

Morning everyone!

Now I know the content seems to be a bit outdated for this particular subject. Poshmark has had a rating system for awhile now, but for those of you who are a bit blind to the whole concept of the rating system this post is just to give you all the ins and outs of how Poshmark does their rating system.

So for those of you who are NEW and have no idea of what the rating system is, it’s as follows:

  1. You buy an item & receive said item
  2. Once you ‘Mark Item Received’ you rate the seller based on a 5 star grading scale (1 being the worst – 5 being the best)
  3. If the rating is less than 5 stars you have a selection of categories that you can choose as to what you think the seller can improve on.
  4. If you rate the item 5 stars then you can leave an optional message.

  YAY great! So now here’s where the additional information comes in. For those of you who don’t know, the rating system is entirely for the seller’s information ONLY. Any comments or needs of improvement is solely at the viewing of the buyers discretion. That means, you don’t even have to see what your buyer is telling you to improve on if you don’t want to. I think I have my notifications set to only view comments on listings so I don’t even see half the ratings (probably shouldn’t really admit that). But just so you don’t get all butt hurt when people give you a 1 star rating, no one can actually see that 1 star. In addition, I would advise anyone who is on Poshmark to not announce that you received anything less than 5 stars, since no one would know about it anyway, you’d only be hurting yourself. Also that average rating that you see in your stats, can only been seen by you. Those tools are set to help you out as a seller to provide better quality service into the community so don’t completely ignore it!

  These are a bit tricky to explain, but remember how I told you that anything less than 5 stars will have an ‘improvement’ option? and that people won’t see your ratings? Well that holds true to any 5 star rating as well. You aren’t able to see any 5 star rating that with without that optional comment. They do however count towards your overall rating, but those ratings won’t be seen by the public. If you are the one giving the 5 star rating it never hurts to opt to add the additional note at the end (unless you plan on reselling the item, see TIP for more info). So make sure to add a sweet little note if you can, you can always make someone’s day just by saying something nice!

   These are the only ratings that people ever see is if you really do have a 5 star experience and you have something to say about it. Love Notes were added into the community and to users profiles to spread the Posh Love. If you already don’t know what Posh Love is, it’s a term that was coined by Team Posh that signifies that efforts by the users to help and support the positivity within the community. So to continue the Posh Love and still give the sellers an awareness of how they were doing, they came up with a way to create a rating system but only show the good reviews. That way they could still make the buyer feel that any poor review were to be kept private. So don’t fret if you ever receive a poor rating, the only ones that show are the 5 star reviews with the comments that your buyer opted for.

TIP: On the other hand for those of you who are on the other side of the coin and you are buying, just know that any comment you make on a 5 star rating will show up on your profile as a Love Note Given. So if your strategy is to buy low on Poshmark and resell at an inflated price, be mindful that you may want to reconsider if you don’t want people to know your business tactics.

Well I hope this give you a bit more ease into the weekend and to not stress or harass any of your buyers for giving you a rating that you *may* feel is undeserved. Make sure you spread the Posh Love and send out the love notes as much as you can and give true and honest ratings. If you have any comments or questions please feel free to put them in the box below. Make sure to subscribe to my blog from now until Christmas I will be updating more and more posts to get you guy to sell more and make more for the holiday season!

Stay Healthy,



List Like A Pro

So if you’re a pro or a newbie, there are different perceptions when it comes to listing. For those that are new, its kind of a new experience for most of us once we start out. You’re really excited, and you start dressing things up, take a few pics and upload your new listing, then voilà! You get your first sale!!! All of a sudden, you get the bug and you’re immediately addicted. You dart to your closet and take pics of EVERYTHING you can sell, old shoes, new shirts, ANYTHING you can get your hands on…then it sets in after the 10th listing. Yes you all know what I’m talking about! The: “I have 2 whole piles of clothes more to go, this is exhausting!”

Yes, we’ve all been there, especially if Poshmark is your business and you buy to sell. It’s so much easier to shop and buy, than it is to ‘list’ the actual item. So let me throw some harsh facts your way first so that you can take these tips and create your own method of listing.

  1. Poshmark is a mobile platform, so the only way (for now) to list an item is through your mobile device. Sorry guys but until Poshmark releases a new update where you can list on your desktop computer we’re stayin on our smart devices until then.
  2. Photos are usually taken on your mobile device since its on a mobile platform. Unless you want to throw in an extra step or two you can take pictures on an external device and upload them to your phone.
  3. You get 4 pictures per listing. I’ve heard that Poshmark will be updating it soon to add more pictures but it’ll stay 4 for now.
  4. You have to add a description and details to each listing.
  5. Each listing needs to be done one at a time, there’s no way to submit multiple listings at once.

So having these rules and restrictions makes way for you to get a little creative, so to speak. For myself I’ve been one to make things easier for me rather than harder. I’ve made a sure fire way to get all your listings done with the best quality, but also with the most efficiency. Now just remember that my way may not work for everyone, but you can always try it out and see how it works for you!

Let’s get started!

1) Start by setting your stage.


Notice the setting where I am taking picture of the shoes and all the accessories and props.

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

Same props as before just added a new pair of shoes!

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Same area, just added accessories!


Set my area for jeans and clothes that need to be hung.


Now all I have to do is add the next pair or whatever and I can move on quickly!

What I mean by that is that you must always get your area ready. I like to list my items in categories. All the shoes at once, all the bags at once, and all the clothes that are on hangers at once. All items that are to be staged in the same way do them all together, it will save you tons of time switching back and fourth for every different piece of clothing (it will also save your back too!). This is the time to dress up your area, bring in the light, get your background ready so that once you set your area, you’re ready to rock and roll.

2) Take all your photos all at once.

Screen Shot 2015-11-09 at 2.24.59 PM

This is where you can just fly. Once you’ve got your lighting and all your props and designs in order, you can just add the item in and just snap away. This is a great time to add hints to yourself later on when you’re listing the item. What I mean by that is when you are taking pictures, make sure to take pictures off all the details that may help you when you’re listing the item later on. When taking pictures of jeans, I like to take a picture of the tape measure at them bottom of the inseam so that I can add it in the description later, same with heels. Also take pictures of the size tag and damage if there is any.


As you can see by my photos, they are of amazing quality, this you cannot get on the iphone yet but I do take photos on my Sony A6000. NOW- this was a gift from my wonderful husband but this fancy camera also has amazing features where I can download the photos from my camera directly to my iphone via wifi. This is the only extra step that I have to take when I am doing this process to get this type of covershot/ hero shot for my listings. If you want to do that, this is up to you, however this is not required, you can take your photos on your smartphone in lieu of this.

3) Edit/ Crop/ Collage photos all at once.

Once you’re all done with your photos, then it’s time to put away your inventory, nicely and neatly then take a look at all the gold you just produced. This is one of my favorite parts of the listing because I can sit down on the couch and just edit all the content. If a photo needs to be highlighted or I need to add a filter, I can do so there on my phone sitting down and relaxing next to a cozy fire! I do this all on my phone so that they’re ready to go once I am ready to list and upload them.

4) Upload from your bed!

This is my happy place! My warm cuddly bed, where it’s quiet and I can just list in the comfort of my PJ’s. This is also the perfect thing to do in your downtime, list a few items at a time, there’s no rush. I never want to feel like this stage is daunting! So I make sure that I do this last part where I am most comfortable. I can get about 20 items in before I am ready to pass out. Then I can do another 20 the next day, but this also saves the time for you rushing to get 10 listings in at best doing them one at a time, then losing the sunlight, or even having to bend up and down to take pictures over and over again. That way all your pictures are done, editing is done, and uploading is at your leisure!

By using this method, and breaking up all the different segments it makes it much easier to get this done and not have to feel like listing your whole closet is the worst thing in the world, especially when you have bags and bags full of stuff that you need to list. TRUST ME I’VE BEEN THERE!!! lol

Hopefully this helped and I hope you start plowing through your closet and get everything listed! Questions? Comments? Please leave ’em at the bottom!

Stay Healthy,


Those Crazy Wrap Things


So I caved, I am one of the crazy people that bought the wrap things and I am going to try it out. My package will be arriving in 2 weeks and I can’t wait to test it out and what all those FB posts with people’s before and afters showing their disappearing belly flab. I hope ‘It Works!’ lol. Hope you saw what I did there… (the name of the product is called ‘It Works!’ in case you didn’t get it).

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 12.38.29 PM

Anyhoo, for those of you who want to try it with me, my share link is below and please feel free to take a leap of faith with me. Besides, with all the activity that I’ve been doing these last few weeks, and staying with my WW, what’s the worst that could happen? Just as a quick update after being on the road for 2 weeks I’ve managed to keep my weight the exact same since I left. Pretty satisfied! But I really want this to jump start my weight loss again!

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 12.39.14 PMSo this is what I shopped for. I started off with the ‘BODY’ Ultimate Body Applicator. There’s a price for $59 that comes with a 3 month subscription. It’s much better than the $99 retail price per box. If you’re gonna try one, you’re probably going to get another so why not?! That’s what I’m going to start with. If you have any further questions, leave them in the comments below! *SO EXCITED* I’ll be posting updates once I get them!


Wish me luck & thanks for reading!

Set Smaller Goals You Can Conquer To Conquer the Big Goal.

 156.0 – Yes ladies and gents, I have gained weight. Totes OK with me because I’ve been feeling thinner, and looking more toned, so I’m OK with that. Also, I am more motivated to get in shape because I’m so close to my goal, 20lbs, 20lbs, pshhhh!! It’s kinda hard when Ryan makes Eggs Benedict for breakfast and we have homemade pizza. All my points are spent by breakfast! But the best thing that I’ve done is make little goals for myself. It’s always easier to break up 5 miles into little bits you can conquer, than to think of a daunting 5 mile run. So when I run, walk, whatever, I always give myself goals that I know I can complete such as: I’ll walk from this pole to this streetlight and see how I feel. Then when I reach the streetlight, I asses how I feel and see if I want to run/ walk/ stop. I never push myself too far, because I’m not here to get anywhere fast. This process is not for the impatient. Patience is a virtue in anything so I’m taking my time, because myself, my craft, my body, my health is important. Be a tortoise!
I mean this can go for anything. If you’re not looking to lose weight, and you want your Poshmark closet to expand, or make more money, then make smaller goals, that will eventually lead to what you want overall. If you want to make more money, pay off your debt first, save, then invest. If you want your sell more on Poshmark, then promote your items more, promote yourself, and share and follow.

Have a good week everyone!
Stay healthy,


Doing good and feeling good! I’ve been working out really hard for the past couple of days and it’s been paying off tremendously! Slowly but surely the weight is slowly coming off and I’m prepping for the Nike Women’s Marathon! Woot!
Stay healthy,

Being A HealthyGirl

So this blog would and didn’t seem complete for a really long time because I had to pull the “Healthy Girl Fit” segment from it back in January and my website never really made sense. Until now. I’ve been keeping it a secret for sometime now that I’ve been slowly losing weight. I don’t know why, I just have! But really, what motivated me to lose weight isn’t the Nike Women’s Marathon that’s slowly creeping up on the horizon, it was the fact that Ryan’s new insurance cover’s 3 months of Weight Watchers for free. So I was like, “Heyyyyyyyyyyyy Weight Watchers!!” and I was all down for it. I wish it would’ve been some profound reason, but really it’s free Weight Watchers! lol.

Now for me, I like to pride myself in being able to lose weight and I have a pretty gung ho attitude when it comes to dieting and starvation methods (Whatever! Don’t judge! You know that’s what it feels like!). I have a VERY strong will when I have a goal, and I am not a force to be reckoned with! So going into my first WW meeting, I had in my head “whatever, I’m gonna smash this. I know how to lose weight, you don’t know me!” but little did I know…they frickin did! They know what it’s like to fall off the wagon and want to just eat BBQ chips all day. They’ve been there and done that so there was no hiding the shame.


July 29, 2015 – 155lbs


July 29, 2015 – 155 lbs

Now in the picture I am 155lbs, but when I walked in there I was 173! Now this isn’t a ‘Hooray You Did It’ moment at all because I’ve still got a lot to lose ’till I hit my goal weight. Now 173 is the largest I have ever been in my life. Was I happy with my body? Not particularly. It’s the exact same feeling of being broke. No one wants to feel broke, or be broke for that matter or even admit they’re on Weight Watchers. However it’s honestly the best feeling to know there are no restrictions when it comes to eating, and I’m with all of you when I say I LOVE TO EAT.

So this blog posts will sorta be my little blog segments of how my progress is going and hopefully inspire for you to do so too! Now you don’t have to join weight watchers, but it’s honestly the BEST $40 I’ve taken towards my health and I have a few reasons why:

1) It’s really given me a perspective on how much food I shovel into my face.

With weight watchers, nothing is off limits. Nothing. But what the program does is really put things into perspective on how much food is actually worth in the grand scheme of things. How much food you really need to eat, as opposed to how much food you want to eat. And the program works off a point system that really makes you really think about what you’re putting into your body. So for instance: I LOVE to eat pasta. I mean who doesn’t!? But a box of angel hair pasta is 6 servings. I know for a damn fact I eat at least 2 servings when I make pasta. So one serving of pasta is 5pts and if I have a total of 26 points for the day and I just spent half on just pasta without sauce or anything, so it really forces me to see on how much I should ration for the day.

Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 5.05.45 PM

2) It’s so easy to hop back on the train!

I cannot count how many times I’ve fallen off the ‘Ye Olde Weight Loss Wagon’! I’ve yoyo’d more than then I can count. But this place is a no judgement zone, and really there isn’t a sense of competition at these meetings. No one’s jelly of another person and everyone’s out there to just help each other out which is nice. Really, me ‘falling off the wagon’ is if I haven’t tracked my food in a week or so. Which is really easy to hop back on by just tracking it again, I mean it’s not hard. I remember when I was losing weight and dieting, I did NOT want to go back to that gym, or run another mile, or whatever. But I’ve managed to lose weight and keep the weight off for 3 months just by making sure I track my food. Also, there have been times where I went seriously above and beyond my point limit (ladies, you know what time of the month I’m talking about!). But I’ve still managed to lose weight and have my cookies, cakes, donuts, you name it & all without the guilt!

FYI DOn't freak about my goal weight, it's literally in the range of what my height is!

FYI Don’t freak about my goal weight, it’s literally in the range of what my height is!


Well I can’t think of any others and I’m sure those 2 reasons are pretty good. So just keep reading along, I’ll post up my progress every week or so, so you can see if I’m losing weight or not. They won’t be as long as this, so don’t worry, lol.

Just for reference: Goal Weight 120 by mid December (YASSSSSS…..just in time for bikini season! FML)

Thanks for reading!

Stay Healthy,



Ummm Can We Please?!?! 

MAJOR EDITS: Let me first start of by saying that I hate editing myself. I hate it, more than anything, but for the sake of this post, it’s been seeing more traffic than all of my posts combined so I guess it’s a good thing! But I’ve decided to disable all comments on here because they’re not at all constructive to the benefit of the community. Also please take note that I do pay for this blog space and yes any inappropriate comments, or comments that pertain to the incident WILL BE BLOCKED. Furthermore this post has been edited to remain an educational piece and to not focus on my particular experience. This post has stemmed from that experience to give guidance to other poshers, I will not make this a forum about who was right or who was wrong. So I am sorry but I’m moving past that.

(If you’d like to see the original blog post, you can see it here)

So without further adieu-

Having the words ‘NOT AUTHENTIC‘ or any other variation of that plastered all over your listing is a travesty in an of itself, especially since the comments are public and permanent. No one ever wants to see those words, especially if you know your item is real. So how do you deal? Well, you can be like me a write a blog post (please see original post) but before you do something like that there are a few things that I suggest you do beforehand. Before I get to that I first and foremost want to acknowledge that this is not nice, I do not like the practice of people going on to your closet, your profile, and making remarks of shame covering it up with them “helping” you. I am one of those people that do not like uninvited help, but you may be different! It does seem like people are going about it the wrong way, to try to “help” but I am with every girl out there that has been taught to keep your mouth shut if you have nothing nice to say. So I am sorry that if it’s happened to you, because I know it’s hurtful and offensive.

If you are the seller of the item, then here’s a few suggested tactics.

1. Cut all communication between you and the Posher claiming that it isn’t authentic.

Do not communicate with this person any further. It’s only going to get worse. Do not name who they are or put up shaming posts for people to look at their profile, just ignore them altogether. You don’t need any of that on your page! I’d also like to point out that this blog post or any of my blog posts are never meant to “shame” any one individual. I have never posted anyone’s profile in a negative light, and always asked permission for people to be mentioned on my blog. So now that, that’s out of the way.

2. If your item in question is in fact real, post up any additional proof of authentication. Details in make, receipts, customs forms, and repair work orders.

No person can argue with a receipt and it’s the best way to shut people up. If it’s been paid for or if there’s proof that it’s real then not even the best authenticater can argue. I mean they can, but then they just look weird for trying to argue with the company itself. FYI just remember that you’re basing an authentication off of pictures, PICTURES, so even the best authentications can be off if you don’t have the actual item in front of you. I know Poshmark’s Concierge service even video’s the package being opened so there is no question that an item wasn’t tampered with.

3. If your item in question is NOT real, or if you don’t know, then I suggest removing the item off Poshmark until you can guarantee that it is.

If your item is not real, then it’s time to burn it. Yes I know, seems a little extreme, but it’s best to really discard the item because it is in fact illegal. I mean there is a marketplace for illegal replicas, unfortunately it isn’t here on Poshmark. So kindly do a favor to the fashion community, as well as Poshmark community and dispose of it. But if you aren’t sure if your precious CHANEL bag you bought from a rich lady’s estate sale is real, then take it to Chanel for repairs, or take it to an authentication service (which I still don’t trust) just so you can have paperwork proving it’s real. I’m sorry, I know there are women out there that help out the few that don’t know what’s real and what’s not, however, ultimately it’s my money and I cannot put my money in the hands of people that I don’t really know, or that I know, don’t have any power to give me my money back. If you want to, then to each’s own, but I would just trust Posh Protection since they guarantee authenticity and they WILL get me my money back.

If you are a Posher who likes to write “NOT AUTHENTIC” on people’s posts. (or any other variation of that phrase to point out that said item is a replica)

Let me make myself clear that this is NOT a technique I use to educate people. Let me also make it clear that I personally do not offer my help to people that do not ask for it. My blog posts are public and made available to people to use the information as they see fit and ask me to help in instances to help better their sales. I find that pointing out on any listing that something is wrong, illegal, fake, even if it’s with a smiley face, still comes off offensive. So typically I keep my mouth shut, I do not get involved with other people’s drama and exchanges, and I do not send people to come to my defense if there is a need. But if you feel SOOOOO compelled to do something about it, here are some really awesome tactful ways to approach the subject without coming off condescending!

1. Hit the ‘Report Listing’ button.

It’s pretty magical this button, because really all you have to do is take out your aggression all in one button! You hate that someone is selling something that is blatantly fake, then ‘report listing’ the crap out of it! They won’t know it’s you and now you can be rest assured that Poshmark will be handling the situation. Please note that there are thousands of fakes all over, not just on Poshmark but everywhere, so that’s a lot of listings to sift through. So it takes time but they will be removed.

2. Take the educational exchange OFF the listing.

I have a really good friend, long time posher, who I sold something to, that wasn’t 5 star thrilled with the exchange. So what did she do? She wrote me a comment on one of her old listings that sold, to tell me that hey she wasn’t too thrilled with the item she got, but she’ll still accept it, but I could work on my descriptions a little bit. Were my feelings hurt? No! Was she tactful in her approach? Absolutely. So I suggest that if you would like to tell someone that what they’re selling isn’t in fact what they think it is, then go to an old listing of yours that’s already been ‘SOLD’ and kindly let them know. So if you think someone doesn’t know they’re selling a replica, I would imagine the exchange to go something like this: “Hey, so I know you just put of those gorgeous Loubs up, but I thiiiiink they may not be real. I could be wrong but I wanted to ask you off the listing just in case, because I didn’t want to throw it out there if I was wrong” Then the convo can continue, “I thought they were real! Why do you say that?”/ “I have a receipt for them actually I forgot to put it up!” …or whatever. That way, they can make the decision to take it down, and not feel like they’re being bullied on their own listing. WARNING: If you come off in such a way that is offensive, be prepared for a retaliation! People are very sensitive about their possessions, so if you approach this the wrong way people may not be as open to this kind of help.

3. If you’ve been blocked then leave the issue alone.

Just remember, that if your help isn’t solicited, then you’re taking it upon yourself to put yourself out there to be blocked. No one likes to hear that their items are not authentic. No one likes to be thrown out there for judgement. So if you’ve been blocked, then you should ignore it and move on. Don’t send people to your defense, or post up people’s profiles and blog site (actually you can post up my blog, I’ve gotten sooo much traffic since this! lol) so people can go and defend you. It’s a waste of time trying to convince someone of that. Yes I know that it’s infuriating, it’s just as infuriating as having someone write that your items aren’t authentic on a listing! Ha! Trust me I know. But the faster you put your efforts into sharing and following people, then the faster you can make that sale. Which is all that matters in the grand scheme of things! We’re all here to sell and make money, it’s best if we focus on that!

Well I hope this helps, and sorry but comments are disabled for now until further notice!! As soon as this dies down, I’ll open them back up!
