Recent Purchases


I went on a spending freeze for the month of May and was planning to continue my no-buy commitment through June too...until I discovered PoshMark.  If you're not familiar, it's a downloadable app you can use to resell pieces from your closet that you no longer wear.  I've found it to be so much simpler than eBay because it eliminates the bidding process so you can set the amount you want to make for each item.  For the last few weeks, I've been successfully purging my closet & I used the money I earned from my PoshMark sales to buy the items below.  In addition to what's shown here, I also ordered these denim shorts (recommend sizing down) and this chambray jacket (love!).

I too have discovered Poshmark, and got some extra money (and sometimes, some good deals there :p) I just wanted to stop by and said that moto vest is so awesome! I'm not a vest wearing kind of a gal but I can see me wearing that. Great purchases!

Ok, that Helene Berman skirt and Mossimo moto vest are amazing! I especially cant believe that the vest is from Target! I love how feminine it is! Great new purchases!

Lee Ann Rasey said...

I've never heard of PoshMark. I seriously need to clean out my closet! How does it work to sell things on there? Is it difficult? I don't know much about computers so I'm wondering if I could understand the process. :)Thanks!

Kimberly said...

Hi Lee Ann,

It's really easy to use - you just do it all on your phone! Take pictures of the item you are selling, enter in the size, description & price and that's it! :)

Kimberly,
Wondering if you are still considering a tutorial on "scarf knotting"?

Kimberly said...

Yes Rebecca,

I haven't forgotten! I'm so sorry it's taken me a while. We are going to try & shoot the video tomorrow and I'll get it put up on Facebook as soon as I can. Thank you for your patience!

What do you use to create your photo collages? You have a great blog .

Patricia Whitfield-Madison said...

What do you use to create your photo collages? I love your blog.

Kimberly said...

Hi Shy,

I don't know about it being rain resistant - I was more buying it as a lightweight jackets for the summer evenings or a day at the beach when it's breezy :)

Kimberly said...

Hi Patricia,

I use a combination of PowerPoint, PhotoShop & PicMonkey for my collages. Sounds complicated, but it's a system I've found that works well for me. Feel free to email me directly if you have more questions!
