I posted this on Instagram and really depicts how I feel about ethical living and, the fashion industry. Let’s be the change that we want to be in the world!

Do you care where your clothing is coming from, who is making it, how they live, and the impact that it is having on the environment.  Most people's answer would be NO. This however, closed minded view is the reason the fashion industry can get away with paying oversea workers .25-$4 a day to work just to make clothing for us. We who are careless in our purchases are hurting the workers and the environment. Well, I no longer stand for this injustice. I will not buy from unethical companies because I do not support how they chose to conduct their business. "We do what they want us to," a quote from a song by Bittersweet is all to accurate. Some of you will continue to buy your cheaply made clothing because you chose to close your minds and, if it doesn't directly affect you, you dismiss the problem. Although, it may not affect you directly it will affect future generations when this planet's water supply is unusable because we threw dye into it from fabric. And, when the landfills are stacked but, are now in our backyards because we consumed too much. "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
Coco Chanel

What Is Poshmark?

Many you may have heard of Poshmark and other may have not. If you follow me on social media you know I am a huge advocate for Poshmark and love using it! I have decided I am going to be doRomeo & Juliet Couture Dresses & Skirts - Romeo & Juliet Couture Dressing a blogging and video series on Poshmark but, before I get started I wanted to give you an idea of what Poshmark is and, give you the ability to ask question and, get them answered! The more questions you ask the better I will be at helping you understand how to use Poshmark and, how to sell on Poshmark. I am currently a top 10% seller and have earned $1,661 on 106 sales in my total time selling on Poshmark. I am not the most successful story on Poshmark but, I am extremely passionate about my closet and am consistent with sales. My number one goal for Poshmark is provide an incredible experience for my customers at a discounted rate. My second goal is to completely sell out my closet with over 230 listings at around $4,000 ( that is a major gestimate it could be more). To briefly describe Poshmark, it is an app where you can sell new or preloved clothing from your closet. In my head it is a way to make back some of the money you spent on the clothing and have some extra cash in your pocket. You can decide if you want to be a full time or part time Posher and, decide if the money is gong back into your wardrobe or are you using to save up for something special. I will of course go into more of a description and, step by step Coach Bags - Coach Chen PLTD Clutch Authenticapproach once I receive feedback on what you all would like to know. In the meantime I will be listing, answering potential customers, and hopefully selling! If you would like to join Poshmark now you can head over to the app store and find them its free. If you would like to receive $10 to shop when you first join the app use my code: HFNIS to get $10 and start you shopping!

Happy Poshing,

Pair together pieces that are normally out of your comfort zone, it’s time to experiment with your style! If your hair is short consider getting hair clip-ins or wigs to switch up your look during the week. It is all about altering who you think you are through fashion and find a new you. Clothing has a way of making you feel like a different person based upon what you are wearing. If you want to look confident, empowered, pair a bold color mixed with your neutrals and be a little daring with you accessories. Just have fun with it and you may be able to make many outfits with only a few changes.

Keep it cheap & chic

Xo,
