Reader Amy asked if I can do a post on what we should wear to PoshFest 2016. Ask and you shall receive! If you’re like me and flying into Los Angeles for this year’s annual Poshmark PoshFest gathering you’re probably berating your brain with the age old question: WHAT DO I WEAR?!
I’m going to throwdown the lowdown on some Do’s and Don’ts to help your little butt out so that you can pack care free and have all the essentials, as well as some stylish outfits prepped and ready to go!
For those of you who have been to PoshFest before you kinda have a good idea as to what is in store for the days ahead. But if this is your first time, I would check out the agenda here just so you know what you’ll be getting into.
Day 0 – Poshmark Pre-party, Friday September 30
This will be an evening attire event, so plan to dress like you would at a swanky bar. So no ball gowns, PJ’s or bathing suits required at this event. This is a time that you’ll be on your feet a lot through the evening, so plan your footwear accordingly. Also, this is the night before the event the next morning so don’t plan on partying too hard! What to wear: party outfit, sparkle, stylish, heels/wedges, make-up, hair, the whole nine!
Day 1 – PoshFest Saturday Morning October 1
This day will start off as a social hour, lots of meet and greets, exploring the area, and then a TON of panels. They’re usually pretty back to back and you’ll be sitting most of the time before we break out into workshops. I am under the impression that the venue has climate control so bring a light jacket just in case. What to wear: business casual with a panache of style! I would recommend wedges rather than heels, or super cute flats!
Day 1 (cont.) – Saturday Evening PoshFest Party
So remember this isn’t prom. Still no ball gowns at this event but I would like to think of the ambience more as a New Years Eve party. You will be dancing, you will (possibly) have some appetizers to munch on, and drinks to consume. Also there will be photos! So dress to impress, so you can party hard! What NOT to wear: flip flops, swim suit, winter clothing, costumes, and active wear.
Day 2 – Poshfest Sunday October 2
So if you aren’t terribly hung over (like I was at the first PoshFest in Vegas…don’t judge me, everyone was! Lol) this would be a good day to wear a comfortable outfit of your choice. There will be some finishing remarks and some long lasting goodbyes before everyone parts ways, but t-shirt, jeans, booties are pretty common on the last day, but really you can wear any nice outfit. Just don’t come with vomit in your hair, or look like a hot mess from the night before.
I hope this helps you ladies pick out your outfits for PoshFest before you jet set out to sunny Los Angeles! On another note, if you happen to not check the weather, Los Angeles is in the triple digits, so it is hot hot hot. Don’t think if you’re from the East Coast that since the weather is starting to tone down, that your blanket scarf, pumpkin spice havin’ ass, fall attire is gonna work here. Nuh uh! It is hot and dry, so keep that in mind.
Also- don’t think that you have to get decked out in all super designer attire and that everyone is a freakin’ Victoria Secret supermodel at the event. No- we’re just normal women & men who love to sell fashion, all different shapes and sizes. Just think you’re going to a convention of all small business owners. So rock your own style, come and meet some new friends, and if you’re scared, come find me, I’ll hang with you! It’ll be fun, we will have a blast!
