Style Session: Blair does Black and White

This post is two-fold: (1) I'm loving my taking on Blair Waldorf's style, and (2) I talking about Poshmark and how I scored this Kate Spade dress new with tags for $30.

As most of you know, Blair Waldorf is pretty much my spirit animal. I immediately thought of her when I purchased this black and white Kate Spade spade dress; complete with front bow and pockets. I wanted to bring her preppy and chic style into modern day by pairing it with these sassy bow heels and button up blouse. 

I feel like this is the type of outfit she would have worn while working at W or after she took over her mom's company. Boss lady Blair!

The girls over at Goldplaited took my look to Queen B
 level with this beautiful mermaid braid and bold red lip!

Now to the excited behind the scenes of this look....I bought this Kate Spade dress on Poshmark brand new with tags for $30. Poshmark is an online site and app where people can have their own 'closets' where they sell clothes. You can shop my closet here. You can shop other closets and filter by brands. I like go filter by some of my favorite brands (mainly Kate Spade) and by condition (new with tags). The best part about Poshmark is the "offer" button. You can actually negotiate the price with the seller to try and get it at a better rate. I often wait until an item has been on Poshmark for a while before I place a low offer; so that the seller is more likely to negotiate. This dress retails at $438, but I was able to get it for $30 using the offer function! 

Do you use Poshmark?
