This past Thursday, Poshmark was kind enough to invite me to their NYC Brunch, located at La Sirena in downtown Manhattan. It was an absolutely beautiful day, the sun was out but the previous morning rain cooled the NYC pavement. I came dressed in a white and blue striped long pant romper that I bought from TJ Maxx, as well as white heels from the Jessica Simpson collection. My accessories were all from Aldo.
I got to the venue a few minutes early, and was kindly greeted by Amanda Weiss, Poshmark's social media coordinator. She has been working at Poshmark for 7 years, and absolutely loves what she does. She loves her job because she truly believes in the company and its continuous growth. With 2 million Poshmark followers, she was able to give me amazing tips and advice on how to make my clothes on Poshmark more sellable and marketable.
As I walked around the venue, my first reaction was to how beautiful the decorations for the event were. Decorated with a spring-like theme with pink being the dominate color, I was drawn to the beautiful display of pink candies, and the edible pink and white mini donuts that were hung on display. To the right of that display was the denim station, where if you brought denim, you could bedazzle, attach pins or iron on patches to make your denim drab to fab! There was also a beautiful Poshmark photo op spot where Bronson, the photographer for the event, was busy taking amazing photos of the event, capturing many special moments of the afternoon.
As the other influencers began flowing in, servers came in to offer us an array of wines. Almost immediately the venue was buzzing with noise from camera flashes to the conversations between women about their lives, what they do, etc. It hit me how powerful this event really was. Women coming together, all with a passion for blogging/ fashion, networking with one another to not only help themselves but others. It is so inspiring to see women paving their own way and being successful business people and continuing to build their empires.
We were then seated for our meals. I chose the french toast, which came out absolutely DELICIOUS. While we sat and ate, I met some amazing women who I was able to connect with and talk to as if I had known them for years. Although we were all different, we all were able to connect and find things in common. We all began to talk about ourselves, and time flew by very quickly. I made some amazing friends at this event, and I would love to thank Poshmark for the opportunity.
I can't wait to attend more events and continue to learn more about the industry along the way.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
