Being thrust into the mother of two world comes with certain…predictions. I drive an suv, I only wear yoga pants out of the house, I have a faint yet continual scent of animal crackers emitting from my person at all times lol. While some of these truly define me, I felt like when I was preparing for the new stage of motherhood, more thoughtfulness was needed when it came to the type of diaper bag I would be hauling around.
I don’t know what it is about the fall season that seems to make people want to open cases on me 😝. Maybe it’s the cooler weather, maybe it’s the closing of the year, or maybe it’s been too long of a “good streak” and all good things have to come to an end sometime. Regardless, this is obviously going to be a deep post. If you’ve already seen my post on losing a Poshmark case, you know how I’ve started to approach these situations.
Get your reading eyes out, time to see what’s different, what’s the same, and if I’m able to cope with life after yet another case opened against me.
With Poshfest 2018 in hindsight, I have finally had time to sit down and write out the details of what I’ve learned and how I plan to apply them to my future approach with my closet. Sorry in advance it has taken longer than anticipated to get this post up (dealing with a sick toddler so everything else has taken a backseat). Anyway, this is going to be a more detailed informational post of the key take aways from what I gathered from Poshfest. Here we go!
All the buzz around Poshfest 2018 had me thinking…was attending actually going to be WORTH it for me??? I mean, I’m somewhat a part time Posher, so I wasn’t sure if asking for tickets as my super early birthday present (thanks hubby) would beat out something else to come along. But whatever, I’m all about investing in myself now-a-days so let’s get deep into Posh Fest 2018 and the answer to that one nagging question…
I’ve debated posting this for a long while. Not because it’s unusable, but I had hesitation about giving away some of my golden info. Welp, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and do the thing that makes zero sense. I’m going to tell you where I thrift and shop for my inventory, how I find items when I go, tips and tricks to get the most for your purchases, and how to flip them for profit. This will be a few part series so be sure and subscribe so you don’t miss all the goods.
I’ve been debating about writing why I Posh in the first place. Even as a college graduate, I had always been more interested in the visual creativity of fashion vs. the analytical creativity side that I got lost in. It was never a question of if I was talented, but who was going to give me a chance to show my visual creativity. So many bumps and bruises along the way, but I finally feel like I’m right where I need to be. Here’s my story:
Every time I go through a life change my clothing evolves. Obviously having a baby takes a toll on the body and in my need to feel comfortable and stylish I have developed this reoccurring obsession with a select few items in my closet. These are the items I wear almost weekly simply because I feel they give me a little edge without looking too mommy-ish.
As a Poshmark seller, there have been times I felt treated unfairly. If any of you have ready my post “Case Closed: Valuable Lessons From Poshmark As A Seller” I give my perspective on what it’s like to have a claim opened against you and how to cope. Maybe some of you have been in that position and had valuable takeaways. But what about the other side of things? What if you open a claim against someone else. I’ve had to do this before and I’d like to share my lessons learned. Hold on to your hats, it’s about to get deep!! Continue reading “Case Opened: Valuable Lessons From Poshmark As A Buyer”
However, on several occasions, I have started to notice the larger my audience, the more challenges I face when just dealing with people whether buyers or sellers. Since no one in particular asked the question: “Hey Kim, what are some things I want to avoid while being on Posh?”. I’ve decided to ask and answer of my own merit lol!!! Let’s jump right in!

I want to cue you in on something, no one ever needs more than three (that’s right three) handbags. The classic tote, cross-body, and clutch work just fine. Now ask me why I decided to get a Vintage Louis Vuitton Petit Noé Bucket Bag and I’ll say this doesn’t count because it’s a want, not a need 😜. Continue reading “Louis Vuitton: Petit Noé”
