If you haven’t heard of Poshmark you are a lucky soul because once you download the app and start shopping it’s addicting and the deals are amazing! Poshmark is a community of people who are buying and selling the latest and greatest fashions. I had seen a lot of adds for them and what finally made me log in and give it a go was when I watched a YouTube video talking about their experience shopping on Poshmark and all of the great deals they got! I though well I’ll give it a look just to see if I can find anything firstly in my size and secondly worth getting.
Boy was I surprised to find all different styles, all different sizes and all kinds of amazing deals! I had to really rein myself in and limit to what I purchased other wise I could have spent a lot of money in just the first week! But the nice thing is you can “heart” or “like” items and keep track of them for price drops or the seller can send you special offers on that item. That is how I have purchase most of my items was when I received an offer from the seller for discounted shipping and a lower price! It also allows you counter offer back or even make offers on items to the seller which is really nice. There is a base rate of shipping for $6.49 unless the seller offers a discount.
Let me show you the items I got and then we will talk about the shipping process and the over all experience I’ve had so far!
This is a blue fitted dress from Torrid that I got for $16.99 (including shipping). Can you believe that deal?! I mean how adorable is this dress! Now I’m not usually a big fan of getting fitted dresses but I am really working on my body confidence and I really love the color blocking and how it creates a slimming look! The black belt around the waist also helps to give me more shape! This dress was in like new condition and only had one small snag that I noticed the second time I wore it but that isn’t super visible or noticeable.
This is another dress from Torrid ( I really like to search for the Torrid brand because I know I like the fit of that brand of clothes.) This dress I absolutely fell in love with when I saw it and I knew I just had to have it! I still did way for the seller to offer a deal on it with discounted shipping. So I got this dress for $21.49 (including shipping). I did end up paying the full price on shipping but the awesome young lady I bought this from found a small stain on the lining when she was getting it ready to ship and let me offer a lower price which I was super appreciative of! The stain is on the inside that no one but me would see and isn’t even that bad so I was really thankful for her honesty and transparency with this purchase!
And surprise another piece from Torrid! This is a fun and sassy Sequin Peplum Tube Top. I got this for $26.99, again a total bargain! (Please don’t mind my closed eyes in the first photo-taking my own pictures can be a struggle some days haha) This top is so much fun! I am hopping to find a fun bright pair of pants to go with it to wear for a fun night out! This top has a full zipper in the back making it easy to get on and off and not struggling (which can happen when your a big girl). The only concern I have with this top when I wear it is how low cut it seems to me but that’s an insecurity I’m just going to have to get past because this is too damn cute not to wear!
The three pieces I have already received were so fast! I mean within 2 days it was in the mail to me and the shipping is really fast as well. I think the longest I have had to wait was 3 days. Currently I also have two other orders I have made that I am waiting to ship. One said that she would be putting in the mail today while the other I have yet to hear from. This is the first time I have had a small issue with a seller so I think it just might be a one off situation where the seller might not be actively watching their items. The nice thing with Poshmark is they send a reminder to the seller that the item has been purchased and need to ship it out. They also allow you to cancel the order if it hasn’t shipped within 3-5 business days! I think this is awesome for situations like this one.
Now the only downside to Poshmark is that you cannot return items to the seller if they are the wrong size so you do risk something not fitting if the size listed doesn’t run true. I have been pretty lucky so far with these in my size but I also know what size I wear at Torrid so it make it much easier! But the bonus to this is you can always turn around and resell the item to get your money back!
Overall I think Poshmark is awesome! It’s a fantastic community of people who share a love of fashion! I keep my eyes out for great deals and can’t wait to show you another haul soon!
