5 Reasons to attend Posh Party LIVE

I have officially attended my first Poshmark social shindig (woot woot 😀 )! The Posh Party LIVE event made a stop in Chicago and I had quite the time! If you are new to Poshmark, interested in joining Poshmark, or just like to be surrounded by Go Getter Girls – check this event out! Not convinced? ….
Here are the 5 reasons to register:

1) Everyone is Invited

That’s right! You don’t have to be a seller or a buyer on the platform to partake in this Poshmark fun! Which means if you are simply interested in starting a closet one day – you can register! If you are on the platform and don’t have a Poshmark Bestie (PFF) to attend with you – bring a friend! I brought my sister and she had a great time – even though she isn’t a Posher! My sister fit right in and had a great time! The registration total for the both of us was $25 – super affordable! Grab a friend and go!!! They may just get motivated to start selling on Poshmark and become your next PFF!

2) Poshmark Tips

This is a no brainer reason to attend! There are closet consultations that you can pre-register for to get tips on improving your listings. A portion of the party time is dedicated to a Q&A panel where knowledge is shared from a select group of Poshmark gurus! At Posh Party LIVE Chicago – I learned about the importance of building your closet at your own pace, not being afraid to ask questions, and to look into investing into a Ring Light (apparently it’s life changing for photographing inventory).

3) Relationship Building

Getting to talk with other like-minded people is such a treat and this event pulls in the fashion finding reseller crowd! Stepping out and talking to people you have never met can feel like a daunting task, but the end result makes it so worth it.  To be honest – I looooove talking but that first conversation with a stranger is such a struggle. Thankfully my sister was with me and encouraged me to leap and learn! I ended up talking with a handful of ladies and getting lots of knowledge! I learned about a new thrift store opening up and that the Goodwill locations in Chicago have a 69 cent sale! Information I never had before was now suddenly mine! Step out and build some relationships peeps.

4) Selfies & Usie Safe Haven

Yes, I put that a reason to attend the event! As a blogger and model the struggle to find someone to take your picture at the right angle – is beyond real! Posh Party LIVE had the cutest decor and photography stations. There was a photobooth/GIF maker with a sparkly backdrop! The GIF was instantly text to my phone and I was handed a printed photo collage – it was perfect! There was also an Ivy covered “Posh Party LIVE” wall for taking selfies and usies – & there were plenty of Poshers willing to take your photos so all of your crew could jump in!
NOW, I will say that as much as I love grammable moments – there has got to be balance. If you spend the whole event taking pictures of you looking cute, others looking cute, and you looking cute with cute backdrops – you may just miss out on Posh Tips & Relationship Building. I recommend capturing a few photos, putting the phone away, and engaging. Backdrops can be recreated, the individuals attending the event – not so much. Think on it. 🙂

5) Fashion Inspiration

Don’t let this reason scare you! Some folks were dressed like fabulous fashion bloggers while others looked everyday chic! The whole night I kept thinking “ooh that’s a cute outfit”….wait “that outfit is beyond cute”….and then I realized everyone was just so darn stylish! I left committed to stepping up my game!!! If you are thinking of going – please have fun and style yourself! It will most likely trigger folks to stop and drop the ” Oh, your outfit is amazing – what is your name?” line. I used that methodology and line when striking up conversations. 😀

If you still aren’t convinced… here are two more bonus reasons!
  • Free Drink (with a nice pour 😀 )
  • Free Poshmark Goodies (stickers, cards, balloons)
Go ahead – add all the perks up and you will quickly see that the return on investment (ROI) is pretty darn good! To the Mom’s with young children – grab a jumbo balloon on your way out to take home.  The kids will love punching it and will forget that you ever left (mine did at least 🙂 ).
I hope you leave inspired to attend a Posh Party LIVE near you.
Peace & Blessings,
Lo Johnson
