Don’t know about Poshmark? It’s an App which lets you buy and sell women’s fashion and accessories, pretty much all from your phone. I’ve been using Poshmark for a few months now, and I LOVE IT. I’ve put together a sort of intro/basic of Poshmark and what has helped me sell lots of items! The image above is of my closet, my user name is @njcati. You can see the interface and how easy it is to navigate to buy and sell fashion. If you haven’t signed up already you can use the code BIAIE for a $5 credit to get started.


I love listing items! Closets that have at least 10 listings tend to be seen more often. You don’t have to go nuts and list everything, but list a few items at once when you start off. Take clear photos and describe the item accurately. Make sure you have selected the correct designer so you increase chances of it being found by a potential buyer. If you’re unsure about pricing go ahead and google your item a few times and check for other listings and compare prices. Poshmark takes 20% commission from sales $15.00+, and a flat $2.95 fee for items under $15.00. This may seem high, but personally I’m alright with it. Poshmark handles the shipping charges (buyer pays shipping) and e-mails you a prepaid label as soon as your item sells. Print it, pack it, and ship it. You can arrange a pick up at your home from your local mail carrier (all Poshmark sales are shipped USPS priority) or bring it to the post office yourself. I’ll have a more in-depth post coming soon about cover shots and shipping, so stay tuned.


This is important, but can start to get tricky. When you first start off on Posh it’s easy to get caught up just following random users. This is good – but you might want to use a little bit of discretion. Some users do not comply with all the rules that Posh has and it helps to do a quick scope of someone’s closet before following them. You won’t get in trouble if you share an item that is prohibited (we’ve all done it!) but it helps to keep the over all integrity of Poshmark. Following users that follow the rules will result in less drama and more shares!


This is probably the most important part of this post. When you visit a Poshmark user’s closet you are able to see how many listings they have, how many followers, how many they are following, and their amount of shares. That number tells you if the user is an active sharer or not. You can see your own share number in your closet stats, and it’s always good to check on that and work on making it higher! Why is this so important? Sharing basically is advertising your own closet as well as someone else’s items. When you share items from another user’s closet, that item will appear to your followers in their own news feeds. Sharing lots of items has helped my sales immensely. I basically started sharing about 8-10 items from a few users that would pop up in my feed or in my notifications. Some returned the shares, some didn’t – but the point was my items were now being shown to people who were not even on my own feed, which also caused my followers to go up.


Communicate with your buyers/sellers and as always – be nice. Manners go a long way and when you’re dealing with potential sales it always helps to keep yourself as professional and possible.

Like I said, I’m going to be posting more Poshmark installments so make sure you’re following and receiving updates from Vive La Luxe! If you’re NEW to Poshmark and have any questions please feel free to ask in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer. Happy Poshing!

Burt’s Bees….Yes Please!

So our latest BzzKit is on its way from BzzAgent and OH MY, we can not wait for this little bundle of joy to arrive.

This Intense Hydration line from Burt’s Bees contains Clary Sage as the main ingredient. Clary Sage is well-known for its moisture retaining benefits which allow the plant to thrive in even driest of conditions. Intense Hydration is also dermatologist tested so your sensitive skin is safe (oh, it’s also noncomedogenic which means it isn’t going to fill your pores up with nasty stuff). The products contain natural ingredients AND Burt’s Bees does not partake in animal testing, which you can read about here.

Stay tuned for what we have to say about these products – we’re stoked!
