Guest Feature: Get Wedding Ready with @accessoriesgal

Hello fabulous ladies of Posh!  I am super excited to be the host of tonight’s Downtown Glam Posh Party and would love to tell you a bit about myself. I am one of those crazy people who chooses to live on the island of Manhattan. I schlep my groceries, walk miles every day, hear sirens at all times of the day, and navigate traffic. But on the other hand, New York is one of the most amazing and creative places on earth. I wouldn’t have started my business, E.Kammeyer Accessories, had I not been here, nor met my husband.

Yes, I am recently married and when I was chatting with the amazing women at Posh, they asked me to share a bit of my wedding wisdom with you. So here it goes!

My top 5 tips to get wedding ready:

1. Make a workout schedule.  How intense the schedule is up to you. Now, most people would consider me a maniac when it comes to fitness, especially my husband. So when it came down to my wedding, I wanted to make sure it looked as toned as I could. I chose to hire a trainer, Andrea from purefitlosophy.com, who I worked out with twice a week, and who created my entire workout schedule up until the wedding for me. This included working out 7-9 times a week. I’m not going to lie, it was a lot, but worth it in the end. Not everyone needs to go this nuts though. My suggestion is find a plan you can follow and feel confident in.

2. Get serious about your skincare.  I got facials once a month for the six months leading up to the wedding from VMV Hypoallergenics in NYC. Additionally, I created a daily skin care regimen that I followed from Juice Beauty. For more details on my regimen, check AccessoriesGal.com next week for my post on wedding skincare.

3. Start hunting for your bridesmaids gifts, groom’s gift, etc. I chose to give my bridesmaids a few cute little items. Each received a piece of jewelry I picked out for each individual, a clutch with a cute little french phrase (our wedding was in France), and heart sunglasses. A great place to find bridemaids gifts is Poshmark!  There are tons of closets that are bursting at the seams with cute gift ideas.

4. Create a wedding spreadsheet. I happen to not be very good at this kind of thing, but found out through the planning process that my now husband is an amazing project manager and spreadsheet master! We found a template on Google docs and made it our own.  Google docs was a genius tool!  We could share the spreadsheet with each other as well as our wedding planner and anyone else.

5. Take time to breathe and enjoy the precious moments. Planning a wedding is no small feat.  Make sure to take the time to enjoy yourself with your friends, family and partner.  The moments I had with my bridesmaids making the invitations were some of my favorite. If I had let the stress get the better of me, this would have been just a task. Instead we had a blast staying up late and treasuring the time we all had together. Make sure to soak up these moments, they fly by.

Guest Feature: Radical Darling’s Merchandising Magic Tips

Photo by BrittannyTaylor.com

Hello fabulous Poshers! My name is Melanie and I’m a style blogger at RadicalDarling.com, and I’m also a fashion illustrator and graphic designer. I’m all about creating beautiful imagery. From my art and design work to my Poshmark clothing listings, I love to develop a look that I hope people can appreciate! Branding and creative marketing are some of my biggest passions so I’m here to share some tips with you!

Why is merchandising your closet important? A closet needs to be merchandised to maximize your sales potential. When you choose an overall aesthetic, it’s one less thing for your buyers to focus on. You want them to notice your clothes, not your wood floor AND your aztec throw blanket AND your gauzy curtains AND your closet door. Make it easier for them to take the item in since that’s what you’re trying to sell.

Do you use photo editing apps? Which are your favorites? I ALWAYS take the photo in the phone’s native camera in square mode (it automatically does the cropping work for you) and then I get optimal brightness in the Snapseed app. After that, I run it through the VSCO Cam app and throw on a filter, adjust warmth, temperature, sharpness, and whatever else necessary, always making sure to keep the image true to the actual product color. Of course, nothing beats natural light…no app can duplicate that look and it’s my best tool for my base images.

What three tips would you give someone just starting out on Poshmark? If you’re just starting out on Poshmark, I recommend this:

  1. Your images are most important. Take the time to take great photos and it’ll pay off. If you do the work so that people don’t have to ask questions, that’s an easy sale right there.
  2. Update regularly. Adding new clothing not only puts new eyes on your new listing, but if your images are great (see rule 1 above) people will look into the rest of your closet to see what you have and you may make a sale on an older listing!
  3. Keep trying new things! I’ve had about three different “sets” for selling. I used to wear the clothes and use my SLR camera, which people appreciated it, but I could sell faster just by laying them flat and using my phone. White backgrounds work best for me, opposed to patterned paper or busier backgrounds.

 

What makes a great covershot? A great covershot is well-lit, minimal, and lacks distraction.

Where do you get fashion inspiration? I don’t look anywhere specific for fashion inspiration…I wear what I think would look great with other pieces in my wardrobe! I do read fashion blogs and follow models to enjoy their off-duty style on Instagram, though!

What summer trends are you loving right now? This summer, I’m in love with large floral prints and gladiator sandals! They’re a perfect pair.

How do you find time to study law, blog and be a rockstar seller on Poshmark? School has always been my priority but I’ve found that doing what I love in your free time as well as in my career keeps me feeling inspired.

051915_influencer feature_boardroom blone 1

We loved your blog post on how to find the best plus size bathing suits! Which is your personal favorite for the summer season? I love Monifc swimwear. I’m planning several more blog posts this summer showcasing how beautiful they all are!

What’s your favorite thing about Poshmark? I love being able to share my closet with my readers. I’m obsessed with putting together entire outfits that I sell as bundles because it takes the guesswork out of looking fashionable.

Pineapples or Watermelons? Pinepples. All day, everyday!

Is it true? Do blondes really have more fun? No way! I collect besties like Barbies in literally all of the colors of the rainbow. We’re all super fun!
