1. What 3 closet staples are must-haves for a city gal?
Chic flats, a nice leather bag and an assortment of jackets and coats!
2. How can you wear leather in a flirty and feminine way?
I like wearing leather accents and featuring only one leather piece in an outfit. Keep it simple and dress it up with some pearls or a pop of color.

3. Leather leggings or moto jacket and why?
Moto jacket for sure – you can wear it all year long (leather leggings don’t get along with summer too well)!Check out Tracy’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Leather vest: $16 / Leather skirt: $25 Retail $125 / Leather boots: $200 Retail $350

1. How would you describe your personal style?
I’ve had this question come up MULTIPLE times, and I never quite know how to answer it. The only word that seems to describe it is eclectic – “deriving ideas, style or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.” I’m attracted to SO many different stylesm and I try to incorporate them all into my looks and making them my own. I love pulling from different ideas, adding unexpected touches, and I’m never afraid to try new trends. So I think the only way to describe my personal style is eclectic and ever-changing!

2. If you could shop any celebrities closet who would it be and why?
That’s SUCH a hard question, but it would have to be Olivia Palermo! Everything (and I mean everything) she wears is just perfect! Also, I’ve been obsessing over everything Jessica Alba wears lately! Her street style is just awesome!

3. What is the a creative way to wear leather without resorting to a moto jacket?
I’m ALL about leather boots! Whether they’re ankle booties, knee highs, over the knee, flat, heeled, whatever they are – boots are instant outfit makers!Check out Jackie’s wish list leather items on Poshmark:
Helmut Lang Gala Sheath Dress: $229 Retail $495 / YSL Tribute Platform Sandals: $299 Retail $895 / Alexander Wang Rocco Satchel Bag: $500 Retail $850

Best Practices for Using Images from the Web

image

We know at times it can seem intimidating to try to take the perfect Covershot, and you may think it’ll just be easier to use a beautiful photo that someone else took. That’s when the thought crosses your mind: Is that okay to do?

Read on to get some best practices for using photos you didn’t take:

Even though we’re big fans of their great photography and beautiful pictures (hello, Instagram), whoever took the photo is the copyright holder of that image. They can sell or give permission to use it if they wish. They might even be open to their images being used if you reach out and ask. Others may not mind someone else using their photos at all! However, unless you took the photo, it’s best to assume you don’t have the right to use it.

What if you still want to use photography that isn’t yours? We strongly recommend to:

1. Get permission from the image owner –  whether it’s an individual or a company. Don’t be shy! Reach out to the owner of the image for their go-ahead. Most image owners don’t mind as long as you’ve cleared it with them first.
2. When posting the picture, make sure you mention the original owner, link or tag them and other necessary ways to show the image’s source.
3. If you don’t receive permission, use a different image altogether to avoid any sticky situations! Let your personality and creativity shine and take your own photos for listings – it’s the best way for your potential buyer to know exactly what they’ll get when they buy the item!
