Week One: the Minimalist Wardrobe

Week One Minimalist Wardrobe

I am relieved to learn that I am not the only one who feels overwhelmed by their personal closet!

With that said, I have decided to document downsizing my wardrobe. I’m not going to promise that I will be able to guide you through your journey BUT, hopefully inspire you to get started!

I don’t really want to post a picture of my closet. However, it’s probably necessary.

This is how I started out Week One…

A Step Toward Simplicity: the Minimalist Wardrobe

Poshmark Minimalist Wardrobe

I like to travel, for the most part. When I was younger I loved packing for a trip. I would have my suitcase open in my bedroom a week prior as if to prolong the vacation experience. I would pack and unpack and carefully arrange things while daydreaming of the fun that was about to happen. Now, packing is the worst part- yet I have it down to a science. I have come to the conclusion that I could pretty much survive any trip with 2 shirts, denim, and a cardigan. So I start with that and go from there. This ability and desire to wear just a couple of my favorite pieces when I go out of town really makes me think that I could benefit from a minimalist wardrobe.

For as long as I can remember, I have desired to only own my favorite things. I want to open my closet and instead of choosing the shirt, dress, sweater that I hate the least that day, be overwhelmed because I want to wear everything right now!

I’m also the person who won’t wear my most favorite shirt because I don’t want to ruin it.

Streamlining my wardrobe has always been a dream, but making it a reality is something I have been putting off. I have read the magical decluttering books and believe me, they have helped. Also, selling clothes online with apps like Poshmark has been a huge motivator. But I think the time has come to REALLY do this.

 

In case you are wondering what my point is in doing this… here’s what I want to see happen…

Best Lighting for Your Poshmark Photos

Best Lighting Poshmark Photos

No one denies the importance of a great covershot on Poshmark. It makes even the most mundane cardigan look like the answer to all your life’s problems. Or at least promises to fill the gap in your wardrobe. Not only do we know that covershots are important but we know that lighting is the key to achieving great Poshmark photos.

This time last year I was pretty happy with my photos… I had discovered the best wall in my home to take them and was getting insane natural lighting. While they were not the best shots on Poshmark by far… I knew I was pretty much maximizing my potential. I did a full post about Natural Lighting and I felt I was good to go.

Then… we redecorated.

Are You a Poshmark Seller Stylist?

Poshmark Seller Stylist

The new Poshmark Dressing Room feature got me thinking about the features that have been added over the past couple of years. Also, the constant reference to sellers as “Stylists”. Which makes me wonder… are YOU a Poshmark Seller Stylist? Am I?

The answer for me is simple. No, I am not.

I don’t connect with that term.

I will get back to that in a minute.

First, let’s discuss the connect between the Dressing Room and being a Poshmark Seller Stylist.

Poshmark’s Update to the Update…

Poshmark Update

A quick update to yesterday’s post covering the Poshmark Dressing Room…

It’s BACK.

It was a tough 24 hours but go and update your app again.

The edit button is back.

I mentioned in yesterday that it was moved and apparently I wasn’t the only Posher who noticed! While it never totally went away… it was just in a place that wasn’t helping anybody out. I saw so much on social media (Instagram) regarding the disappearance. The great news is that Poshmark listened and immediately put it back. I think it shows that YES they do listen and YES they care about user opinions.

 

If you are clueless as to what I am talking about … and of course “tough 24 hours” is said tongue-in-cheek, then I will explain about this quicker sharing technique that so many of us use. It’s different for android users but this is how it works on an iPhone or iPad…

The Poshmark Dressing Room

Poshmark Dressing Room

For this first time, the PMHQ ladies hosted a webinar especially for Suggested Users! It was a quick 20 minute presentation this past weekend about the latest feature coming our way on Poshmark.

The POSHMARK DRESSING ROOM

 

Makes no sense right? It’s ONLINE… how can you try on clothes?

Well, you can’t. It’s not about trying on clothes.

Yeah, it took me like the entire 20 minutes to stop scratching my head.

I held off posting about this until it went live. Now it’s here.

Change of Plans

Poshmark Change of Plans

An important characteristic of a successful business owner is the ability to change and adapt with the markets trends. One part of that is actually being able to recognize when something isn’t working. This can lead to a change of plans and altering your strategy.

This applies to online sellers, regardless of your preferred selling platform. You have to be cognizant of the changes and know how to make them work to your advantage. A growing company like Poshmark is an example of a company that is constantly evolving and changing. Whatever your winning strategy was last year probably isn’t cutting it this year.

Case in point, I know tons of Poshmark sellers who no longer do aggressive markdowns during “Closet Clear Out” as perhaps they once did. Why? Well, while some sellers are still finding success with marking down items because buyers are motivated to purchase with discounted shipping… personally, I am not finding it beneficial for my closet.

Never Forget a Poshmark Customer

Never Forget a Poshmark Customer

Often I will run across a Poshmark username and it just looks soooo familiar. I hate when I cannot remember why! Then all these scenarios run through my head…

Did they make a crazy offer before?

Did this person buy a huge bundle?

Wait, they gave me a host pick didn’t they?

 

If you have been selling on Poshmark for a while OR if you have a horrible memory like myself… this is for you!

I am going to share with you my way of never forgetting a Poshmark customer again!

Some of you may already do this and a few of you may slap your forehead because the solution is so simple!
