Teaching in Camo! Plus a Poshmark Question

I love these Gap camo jeans, but I had never worn them to school before this day. I wasn’t sure if they were dress-upable enough, but I totally think they are with the right top and accessories. ย I got several compliments from other teachers and some of my girl students. I did also get one compliment from a freshman boy who said, “I like those camo pants…..but I can’t see them. Haha.” ย I see what you did there, clever freshman. ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay, I do have one confession to make. These boots look so fierce with these pants! Unfortunately, there is no way on this earth that I could’ve taught all day in those boots because they’re a little uncomfortable to walk in. Maybe if it had been a day when I was doing a lot of sitting, like if kids were testing or something? But unfortunately it was a typical teaching day where I’m up, walking around the room, waving my arms in the air like I just don’t care, so these boots were not going to happen. ย I swapped them out for some flat black gladiator sandals before school and they looked okay, but not as cool as the boots so these are the photos I posted. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

QUESTION FOR ANYONE WHO HAS SOLD WITHย POSHMARK

I’ve bought several things on Poshmark and gotten great deals on some really cook items. These camo Gap jeans came from Poshmark, as did a Stella & Dot leopard scarf and a few other specific items I really wanted, but didn’t want to pay retail prices for.

I’ve looked into opening a “closet” on Poshmark to sell some of my gently used clothes and jewelry that I’m not wearing as much lately, but I noticed that they take a 20% cut. Then if you use PayPal they also take a cut (I believe it’s right around 3%). So if I sell on Poshmark and have people pay with PayPal, I’m already losing 23% of the purchase price? I understand they bring you a big audience and facilitate smooth, easy transactions, so there is value in that. I’m just not sure I’m ready to go for that big of a cut when eBay only takes a 10% cut. Is that extra 10% worth it to go with Poshmark?

Then there is also the Instagram closet option. I see a lot of people selling items directly on Instagram by just having people leave a comment with their PayPal email. I guess the only fees that way would be the 3% PayPal takes, but the downside is unless you have a huge following, there won’t beย as many people seeing your items.

Thoughts?
