I would like to make back a little money on my clothes that I spent a lot of money on and wore once! Oh don’t worry miss Cherry Charity – I give a shit load away and plus I volunteer to do a lot of things that you’d never do. Putting a bag of your old clothes on your front porch doesn’t make you a saint! So now, for those of you like me – you are going to thank me for this one.
Have you ever loaded up your SUV with a bunch of kick ass items – hauled over to some resale shop only for the bitchy owner to turn up her nose and pick out 1 or 2 things that she thinks are FIT for her shop and they have to be perfectly clean and on hangers and in season and THEN then you’ll get paid on when they get paid! This is the biggest racket going. These owners own NOTHING. You are giving them their inventory and you get a crappy % of the sold price.
So there’s E-BAY which is a pain in my ass – let me write up a 100 word essay on this $20 item and take 10 pictures – no thanks!
INTRODUCING … POSHMARK. I fricking love this! Simply put – here’s what you do:
– Go to the post office and stock up on FREE mailing pouches
– You’ll also need tissue, and mailing tape to package your items
– Download the app to your phone
– Snap some pics of your items
– Upload them to your “closet” – and fill in the form which asks for a few things like color, price, description – very simple info – fill in the blank
– Once it sells they send you and e-mail “congrats you sold your party dress” and they ATTACH a mailing label- they had me at hello with this one!
– Wrap up the item and attach the label and put it out for your mail carrier
– You get paid into an account and then just transfer to your bank account or you can use the dollars to shop on Poshmark
– there are a lot of other features in the site to help you sell more – I want to keep it simple.
– you can sell any brands in any season – it’s your closet
You are welcome!

As I mentioned last blog, I’m a bit bored with fashion right now. Sorry not sorry. I need to be entertained or I start to drift (in all aspects of my life).
I don’t know what I’m expecting or looking for but I’ll tell you what it’s NOT…
The vomit inducing combo of dusty pink and mustard yellow…
A puffy coat over a dress or anything other than ski wear
(like some kid who heads off to church in a nice dress with their North Face jacket)
Shearling bomber jackets for the most unflattering look ever plus #hotflash
Ruffles… they are great for potato chips (period)
Statement CHOKERS – they started small but are going BIG for fall
Statement FUR – please stop me- I’d like one in every color please!
Statement EARRINGS – just bought these
Bags with a kick ass STRAP
I’ll let you in in a little secret, I’m buying a guitar strap and connecting it to a bag I already have! Cause I need another bag like I need a hole in
CHEERS to FALL!
I’m excited to get into my leggings and big sweaters to cover up a long summer of sin… which is slipping into a sinful fall and then comes the holidays – YIKES!
ISO means In Search Of, BTW. I did not know that but then again I thought LOL meant Lots Of Love (instead of laugh out loud). You can imagine my panic when I found out and remembered all of my Face Book comments… “so sorry about your grandma…LOL”. “Your cat lived a great life (or really 9) LOL.” Laughing out loud at how dumb I am (and trust me so are my kids!)
Anyway, I’m always ISO the perfect layering tops, which are great for this pre-fall season called “transition”. My current obsession is a great dark gray tee- clearly with a V-NECK or scoop (not a crew neck – we all know that right?) I buy them by the batch.
I love the simplicity – pair a gray tee with jeans, shorts or a long skirt and then layer a blazer, denim jacket or cardigan over them and of course some amazing accessories. (Of course you can get them in others colors besides gray – but gray is better) T by Alexander Wang’s classic pocket tee and Old Navy’s boyfriend tee are amazing. MY NEW FAVORITE is Z Supply’s pocket tee sold at E-Street Denim.
Purge the closet
If you didn’t wear it this season– get rid of it! Take stock and make a list of what you need for fall.
Purge the body
I tried that awful cleanse – I wouldn’t suggest that. I say just do a lot of fruit, veggies, water (and booze) and cut out sugar, dairy and bread – DONE!
Purge your skin
You know I love the Rodan+Fields REVERSE regimen – takes away all of the sun damage. CLICK HERE to read about the 60 day challenge.
P.S. Coming soon… Fall Trends 2016. WARNING – it’s a snoozer…not my blog – just the trends. I’ll need some extra creativity (wine) on this one!
