PoshNation: The Seller Stylist Tour, San Diego

San Diego was Poshmark's first stop on their nationwide PoshNation tour. 

Since 2011, Poshmark has been bringing together a chic community of women through a social marketplace these fashionistas can access directly from their phones.
The company that revolutionized the digital shopping world with an app to buy and sell clothing set up shop at The Hotel Palomar Wednesday evening. 

Nothing says posh like a rooftop pool party, and the SummerSalt Rooftop Pool & Lounge provided the perfect atmosphere.

The night included cocktails....

a photo booth....

Poshmark cupcakes...

and giveaways.

There was no need for actual physical merchandise. All guests needed were their phones to shop, sell, mingle....

and even meet Poshmark's founder, Manish Chandra.

The event was a huge success, and we wish Poshmark the best of luck on the rest of their PoshNation tour!
