Poshmark Party in NYC: Work Week Chic

This week has been quite a busy one for me. Needless to say, thank God it’s Friday! I am excited to share this post with you because on Wednesday evening, I had the opportunity and pleasure of attending my first ever real Poshmark party. I say real because Poshmark has three virtual parties per day where you share items from your closet as well as other Posher’s closets. For those of you who don’t know, Poshmark is a marketplace created for women to shop and sell items from their closets with each other. Do you have clothes that have been sitting in your closet with tags? You know that dress that you wore only one time, but will never wear again? How about that blouse or skirt that doesn’t fit you or your style anymore? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Poshmark is the place for you. You can sell your unwanted clothes to other Poshers and/or shop your favorite Posher’s closet. It’s an online community filled with women who love to share their style, inspire, and motivate each other. I have been an active member since the start of this year and I have to say that my experience has been phenomenal. I have met some very nice women from all around the country. It's a great community to shop, share, and nake extra cash at the same time.

The Party...

Now let’s talk about the Poshmark party! I attended this event with my youngest sister Magda, aka my photographer. The event was held at Toshi’s Penthouse at the Flatiron Hotel in New York City.  It was such a fun and memorable experience. I also got the opportunity to meet the owner and creator of Poshmark Manish Chandra, fellow poshers, and a very special person who is near and dear to my heart, and she didn’t even know it until we met that night. Her name is Kathleen Murillo. She is a San Francisco Bay Area based style blogger, the editor of InspiraFashionwho also happens to work for Poshmark. She started her style blog a few years ago, before I did... the first style blogger I ever followed. Her sweet and down-to-earth attitude, her unique sense of style, her ambition, and what she was doing with her blogging career inspired me to want start my own blog. I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while, but it wasn't until I started reading and following her blog that I made the decision to do so. I didn't want to start a blog and imitate what she did, instead I used her blog as a source of inspiration to help me find my niche in the blogging community. I wanted to share my own ideas, my personal style, as well as inspire my readers. I am so happy to see how far her blogging career has taken her.Watching her blog grow was truly inspiring and motivating. Meeting her at the Poshmark party was such an incredible opportunity and pleasant surprise. She is as sweet, and down-to-earth in person as she portrays herself on her blog.  

As far as my blog, it has been a challenging and exciting two and half years for me. My blog is nowhere near where I want it to be, but I am not in a rush. I am taking my time with this online space that I call Interiors a la Vogue. I am carefully planning what it is that I want to achieve with my blog and am so excited for what the future has in store for me and my career opportunities, for Interiors a la Vogue, for Kathleen, her blog, and even Poshmark.

Outfit of the Night...

The party’s theme was Work Week Chic. For this event I chose to wear a royal blue business style dress, matching blue pumps, and a white blazer. I paired this dress with a colorful, jeweled statement necklace and a neon pink shoulder bag. I wanted this look to be sophisticated, sleek, and colorful. My favorite part of this look is the statement necklace. I love that it has a wide array of colors, which gives this work week look a nice pop of color and a touch of chic.

  1. I still can't get over this great place I recently visited! This isn't only a good place. It is also one of the best around here. There isn't a listing of the unique offerings, although there should be! The DC venues were magnificent!
