We kicked off January with the #LoveorList Challenge and all our Seller Stylists came together and absolutely smashed it! Everyone cleaned out those closets, listed a bunch, and watched the extra cash roll in. With this challenge came a giveaway, in addition to our 5 weekly $100 Posh Credit winners, we included a grand prize winner of a $2,500 shopping spree in the city of their choice…are you ready to find out who the lucky winner is?! We’ve been dying to share!
We’re SO EXCITED to announce that the winner of this awesome prize is none other than Kristina (@vthcloset)!
And what city did she just so happen to choose? San Francisco! Do we feel a PMHQ visit coming on? (we hope so!)
Simply put, Kristina is an awesome Seller Stylist on Poshmark — she has amazing Covershots, fabulous style and we are SO happy for her! We wanted our entire community to get to know her even better sowe’ve put together a Q&A. Let’s get to it, shall we?
What are the three emojis you would use to describe how you felt when you
found out you were our grand prize winner?
When I read the email saying that I won, I literally started screaming and
running around my apartment. I was so shocked! I think I read the email 10 times
and then continued screaming!
What is your favorite thing about Poshmark?
My favorite thing about Poshmark is how it’s a creative outlet for my artistic mind.
I truly enjoy taking photos and listing items. It allows me to have an online shop
with my own aesthetic.
What are you most excited about visiting San Francisco?
I am most excited about emerging myself in San Francisco’s culture and visiting
the Poshmark HQ! To walk through the halls of a place where ideas are born is
something that’s too exciting for words!
What’s one thing you know you want to buy?
Eeeeek! The one thing I know I want to buy is the black GG Marmont Shoulder
Bag with Pouch. An everlasting shoulder bag that will be sure to complete my
outfits and to maybe-pass down to my future daughter one day.
Your Covershots are so cute! Any tips or tricks?
Thank you so much! Here are some tips and tricks:
- I always like to use a white background. I feel it’s the best way to see a listing.
And every color goes with white! You can purchase a white foam board
anywhere that sells school or office supplies.
- I photograph only during the day with the natural light coming through the
window. This gives your photo a clear view of the item.
- Adding other elements to your listing helps visualize it for the buyer. I go for a
hat, a book, sunglasses, or shoes. Coming from a merchandising background, I
play with the grid layout to visually finish my listing.
- I filter my photos, but I make sure it doesn’t take away from the original color of
item.Some of my favorite apps are:
VSCO: I filter my photos with F2 to give it the photography look.
acolorstory: I use their Tools category to brighten up my photos.
Aviary: I use the Blemish button to clean up any dust from the foam board. This
will make it clean and clear for each listing.
- Take a variety of angle shots to show the color, texture, and silhouette of the
- The cover photos of me modeling the item, well that’s my husband behind the
lens. We collaborate on location, outfits, and poses. He is my creative buddy
throughout my whole blogging journey!
- And most of all, have fun with it!
What’s a question you ask yourself when deciding whether you love an
item or want to list an item?
When I look in my closet, I analyze my clothes and ask myself, if I have not worn it
in the last year. If not, it goes! But, as I am selecting what I want listed, I keep in
mind my audience and the current trends. When thrifting, I select items that best
fit my closet-aesthetic.
San Francisco is quite chilly right now – what’s your go-to warm weather
My go-to warm weather outfit would be to rock a black moto jacket. I love chilly
weather! A white loose long sleeve casually tucked into black high waisted, cuffed
denim with faux snakeskin booties. And to accessorize, I would go for a grey brim hat,
aviators, a camel, oversized scarf and a classic crossbody.
Get ready! We’re covering Kristina’s whirlwind shopping adventure straight from the city on Poshmark’s social media channels. Don’t miss out!
