How I Made $2K on Poshmark

As Shop With Val enters its eighth year in business (woo!) I am thrilled to be adding new services and packages to the list we offer so that I can accommodate all of my client's needs and requests. My newest service entails helping clients sell their unwanted clothing (shoes and accessories too!). Quite often, after a Closet Consultation, a client is left with several garbage bags full of items they are getting rid of. Many times, these pieces are in great condition - even unworn or with tags on them! With items such as these (especially if they are designer) I recommend that clients consider selling them. Based on experience, consigning can often be quick and easy, but gets you very little money. I like the idea of controlling the price and how much I make. So last December I started going through my own closet and setting aside all the items I no longer wore or loved and posted them on Poshmark. Since then I have sold over 60 items and made over $2,000! My closet currently has over 250 items in it and keeps growing! #PoshAddict So now it's time for me to share with you some of my top pointers on how to be successful on Poshmark.

This also leads me to a recent project I have been working on over the last few weeks that I am excited to finally share with you ...

Carrie Colbert is the founder, and CEO of  CarrieColbert.com , where their mission is  to empower women to live, think and dress with more color . Their slogan?  More Color Please.  Since starting Shop With Val in 2010 I have always told my clients one of the easiest ways to spruce up their wardrobe is simply to  ADD MORE COLOR . I am a huge fan of Carrie's mission and love the way she executes her colorful and often bold looks by complementing them against color coordinating murals throughout Houston and other major cities across the US.

My favorite handbag

As I get older, I have learned the importance of a good handbag. In an ideal world I would be walking around with a Chanel on my arm for every occasion, but I'm still working on that one. Even if you're not ready for THAT kind of investment every woman should realize that a good handbag can make you feel more powerful and confident (in addition to more organized)!
