Lessons from my Poshmark fall wardrobe

Listening now…

I have been through some life changes since my last blog post… more to come on that later. I will have a lot more time to blog (at least for now) and plan on getting back into the weekly blog swing of things. 

It’s fall!

My absolute favorite time of the year to blog about all things fashion related. 

Whether it’s a Fall Fashion Inspiration post, a Spooky shoot, I really love doing these. 

This time I thought I would do something a little different. 

While going through my photo shoot photos from the other night, I realized that our clothes can kind of….teach us something. 

 

We wear what we feel and we wear our hearts on our sleeves. 

 

In the mornings, we go through our closets and carefully choose how we want to portray to others that day, we wear Black to certain occasions, our friend tells us “wow, you have a lot of Black clothes!” while going through your closet-while you may have never noticed before. 

We speak as silently, or as loudly, as we want to the world with what we clothe our bodies with. 

 

Here are some lessons from my Poshmark fall wardrobe, which you can find here:

 

Be as humbly yourself as possible, but with attitude.

 

 

It’s perfectly okay to be quiet- if that’s who you are (me.) 

But never, ever, ever let people tell you who you should be, walk all over you, treat you less than you deserve. 

Remain yourself, but know when to step outside of this comfort zone when it comes to protecting your own values. 

Damn straight.

 

Keep it simple.

 

 

This means taking time to sit with yourself and learn patience through your process. 

Wake up in the morning, wipe the sleepy from your eyes and look up at the sun and how it has risen for you ; the way in which it has blessed and given you another minute, another hour, another day. 

For a minute quickly becomes days and months and years and if we don’t take the time to sit with it, really notice it and breathe it in, it will evaporate right before us.

 

And on it goes…keep it simple.

Daydream as often as you like.

Play dress up with your life and try on as many varieties as you like.

Our choices were not meant to be taken so seriously… 

Do your very best and the universe will send rewards and gratification your way.

 

It’s okay to dress like Fiona and Frank from Shameless.

In fact, I encourage it.

My Thrift Haul & Poshmark

Listening now…

 

(Anyone else watching The End of the F***ing World on Netflix?! This song is courtesy of that show. So good- especially if you loved Atypical, like I did.)

 

 

I wanted to write this post for those who may not have thrifted yet and may not realize the amazing finds you can get, while paying way less than you would at a retail store!

I started thrifting around age 18 and haven’t stopped since…

I actually prefer thrifting to shopping in the mall because I find it more fun and satisfying when you find something really unique and when you find something of a brand you know is expensive that you bought for like $5.

 

 

 

J Crew French Hen sweater:

 

This item was listed on my Poshmark account- (that’s here by the way) and sold within about 2 weeks. It’s so cute and soft, I was considering keeping it for myself.

White Mountain booties:

Channeling my inner Angela Chase obsession again, these reminded me of her….so obviously in the cart and home they went. (Thanks to my love for gifting me with these Adidas leggings for Christmas)

Banana Republic “Keep It Simple” Sweater:

 

We could all use this little reminder for life, right?

Asos Brocade & Leather Jacket:

 

 

Mango Suit Collection Utility Jacket:

 

I had never heard of this brand, but when I looked it up, found that they sell pretty well on Poshmark.

I have been wanting a Utility Jacket for awhile and this one is perfect. It has tons of pockets and is really warm. The inside of it can also be unbuttoned and worn as a vest! Great for traveling.

I also really love the small leather strips on the shoulders.

Never mind my crazy hair…

 

Do you go thrifting? Do you thrift and Posh or Ebay? P.S. I have an Ebay account, too- that’s here.  

I am really excited to get better at selling on both- I have been listing all of my items on both accounts so that if it does not sell on one, it may sell on the other. I had a pair of Lularoe leggings listed on both that someone eventually bid on on Ebay, so I took it off Poshmark since a bid means the item is sold- listing on both is more work, but it increases your chances of making money and reaching an audience!
