We are so excited to have launched Poshmark on Android and want to share with our community some of our favorite Android apps to use when creating those glamorous Covershots. With so many to choose from, we chose our top three for ease of usability and variety. Can’t wait to see what gorgeous cover shots our Poshers are creating!
1. PhotoGrid – Free
A must-have app, PhotoGrid allows you to create collages with your photos. Modify the layout, play with the ratio of the frames, add text and clip art – this app does it all! Fun little tip – you can shake your device and the app will change the layout for you, if you can’t decide.
2. LINE camera – Free
LINE camera is another fantastic app that gives you the flexibility to play around with collage options. You can also select from a variety of filters, including ones that have the fun bokeh effect. Tap the filter to see other options for that style; in our example we chose the Party filter. Don’t forget you can also play with the intensity to make your filter full effect or faded!
3. Phonto – Free
We know every now and then you want to add a pop of text in a fun font to add dimension to your cover shot. Vary the font, the pt. size, even the color with this great app for typefaces. Tilt words to match the direction of an item in your photo and play with the location of the text. The options are pretty much endless!
Whether you are celebrating Fall on the West Coast or styling it up in the East Coast, today’s hosts and guest bloggers - Naty of A Love Affair with Fashion and Paulina of Lil’ Bits of Chic - are here to cover it all on the blog! If you are absolutely falling for Naty’s and Paulina’s fall fashions, don’t miss out on their “Flirty & Feminine” Posh Party tonight!
I’m all about long sleeve sweater dresses and tall boots for cooler weather. It’s great for staying warm & stylish at the same time.
Booties, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a hat are a must have for me in the fall!
I am currently having a love affair with leather, so it’s definitely a go-to piece for me this season. I’m also loving the oxblood color trend as well. I definitely gravitate towards blazers, moto jackets, and long coats for the fall.
Naty’s “Fall Favorites” Wishlist: Anything from the Isabel Marant Pour H&M collection!
Since San Diego tends to go from hot to cold throughout the day, a jacket that I can toss on and take off is pretty essential. Lately I have been putting my moto jacket to good use because it keeps me warm and layers well with other pieces.
Fall is synonymous with boot weather and when I want to jazz up a casual outfit without compromising comfort I reach for my over the knee, no heel boots. By the same token, when I want to dress up my go-to booties at the moment are my Zara cut out booties.

From puppy cameos to accessories galore, our #POSHSTYLE Instagram Giveaway had some wow-worthy Covershots that absolutely won us over. We wanted to feature a few of our favorites - and it’s easy to see with the pops of color and print (and all that sass) why our Poshmark community are inspirations of style.
Even though our giveaway is officially over (for now), we think that great style never sleeps and encourage you to continue showing us how you #POSHSTYLE your favorite Posh purchases on Instagram! It’s never goodbye, it’s we’ll see you later!
To say that PoshFest was a success would be an understatement, so we’d rather say it through pictures and our favorite soundbites. For those who couldn’t make it this year, we hope that this short and sweet recap will inspire you to join us for all the Posh fun next year:
To welcome all our PoshFest attendees, Manish introduced a very special someone who couldn’t make it, but wanted to send us her Posh love: Rachel Zoe!
One of the most rewarding things about the Poshmark experience is hearing the stories from some remarkable women. Our inspirational speakers, Simonett Pereira and Natasha Bontempo, definitely have a sparkle about them, and they inspire us to knock down any obstacles - no matter how big!
"Jumpstart Your Style" Panel
This fashion-filled talk was moderated by our very own style maven and co-Founder Tracy Sun! She did a phenomenal job engaging our panelists Tracy Espeleta, Jennifer Taler, Mollie Ruiz-Hopper and Simonett Pereira.
We learned that the way you style yourself is the first impression you make with people, that you should never discount the power of a great pair of shoes or a wonderful handbag and that style is bigger than what we wear - it’s how we carry ourselves!

"Secrets to Selling Success" Panel
The infamous and oh-so-amazing Kate Franco of Poshmark’s Merchandising Team led an engaging discussion on a topic that all Poshers want to know about: secrets to being a successful seller. With panelists and power Poshers - Brenda Edmondson, Kathy Adams, Alexandra Marquez and Hannah Ouimet - this panel shared so many insights on why passion has a purpose in sales.
We learned that Posh power sellers take into account that time zones extend your window for selling, that building a following through external networks like Twitter or a blog increases your selling influence and the great packaging definitely builds your closet’s brand.
Keynote Speaker: Manish Chandra
From the mind that started it all, PoshFest attendees got an insider look on the company from CEO and Founder, Manish Chandra! It was completely mind-blowing to find out that the number of listings on Poshmark grows by a full Nordstrom’s store every two weeks!
Even though we at PMHQ hear him talk about Poshmark every day, we still get a little starry-eyed hearing about the future and new features of our app.
"Marketing Yourself in the Virtual World" Panel
Maria Morales - Poshmark’s own Senior Marketing Manager and all-around queen of class - moderated the panel on how to market yourself and your closet like a seasoned Poshmark pro. Panelists Kate Heimann, Kathleen Ensign, Caroline R. Fabacher and Kiki Nguyen shared their tips and tricks for Posh popularity!
We learned that Instagram is a great place to find your target market, that spreading the Posh love and sharing the listings of closets with a lot of followers will increase your own closet’s exposure and accurate sizing with the help of a measuring tape will save you time!
The Founders took the PoshFest stage to answer a few of the burning questions you had about the app, the future of Poshmark and their preference for boxers or briefs.
This insightful and intimate talk with the Founders did teach us that private chat on the app isn’t a possibility for now, neither are hashtags, that we’re looking into new features and programs that improve the new seller experience and that having a majority of women in the office definitely makes it a warm (and sparkly) place to be.
As for answering the age-old question of “boxers or briefs,” our very classy Founders replied with a lot of chuckling, but no answer. The Posh world might never know!
Of course, we ended the day with a Posh Party - Vegas style!
