WSVN -- Model Alecia Rodriguez loves fashion and shopping.Alecia Rodriguez: "My thing is shoes. I love shoes and dresses." But these days she's ditched the mall and is finding her fashion favorites on her  phone through a new app called "Poshmark."Alecia Rodriguez: "I literally wake up in the morning and check my Poshmark app. You browse through the pictures, you look at the description of the item and you can talk back and forth with the seller about the condition it's in or if you even want to discuss prices."Just create an account and start shopping. Poshmark's CEO said the app lets people take full advantage of what can be a fashion gold mine, their closets.Manish Chanvra: "Typically, probably there's more than half the items you have in your closet that you never wear and that's a common problem that most women face. So what we've allowed women to do is basically sell items from your closet through your iPhone." Alecia started using the app six months ago.Alecia Rodriguez: "Ever since I've gotten the app, I spend so much time on there and there are so many great deals."Today she gets a new pair of shorts and a statement necklace for $20, and that's not all.   Alecia Rodriguez: "A pair of Armani shades that could go for $300 or $400 that I've gotten for like $50. So you save a lot of on there."And when she's in the mood to sell, all she has to do is clean out her closet.Manish Chanvra: "You just take a couple of pictures of your handbag, your jewelry, a dress, and within probably 60-seconds, you've created a listing. And then other women can come, talk to you, comment, like and you can even negotiate a price."There are also virtual shopping parties on the app where you can find designer and specialty items.It's all about raiding other people's closets for great savings.Alecia Rodriguez: "You don't have to go to the mall going through sales and bargain hunting. You can do it from the comfort of your home. It's easy."If you're not happy with your Poshmark order, you can return it within three days for a full refund.    And if you have story ideas for Money Monday, email us at moneymonday@wsvn.com.Poshmarkhttp://itunes.apple.com/us/app/poshmark/id470412147?mt=8&ls=1
