We come across so many stylish fashionistas on social media. They all have their unique style that separates them from the rest. Me personally , being Founder and CEO of Eccentric GLOW I feel like its part of my job to bless my followers with the most stylish , fashionable , chic and different ensembles. Putting this list together was so hard I changed the order like 3 times. All of these ladies bring it and slay EFFORTLESSLY. I can count on these ladies everytime for a gorgeous ensemble from head to toe. Each one has their very own style and originality. Im sure you have seen these ladies on my social media outlets numerous times and you’ll see them numerous times again.

Instagram Boutiques : Scam or Nah?

Social media platform Instagram has allowed entrepreneurial business people to bypass brick and mortar and even digital outposts, and sell reasonably priced, custom made pieces to a budget conscious consumer. But while the affordable pieces seem to be trustworthy, it seems more than a few of you have had serious issues with buying through this unregulated channel.

IMG_20140509_194125

All this scamming is really making it hard for the REAL enterpreneurs who have a legit boutique such as myself. I’ve been running for my boutique almost a year but im very up front with my buyers. My business (www.eccentricglow.bigcartel.com) isn’t booming as of yet so everything is pre order BUT I DO HAVE ALL THE CORRECT LICENSES and TAX ID NUMBER TO BUY IN BULK and kill that pre order delay ;hopefully soon. 35% of the people who shop online don’t read and then complain about companies being fraudulent another 25% use Paypal to fraud real companies out of money. I wonder why.

Sigh. This is unfortunate to say the very least. My suggestions for avoiding getting scammed would be: only deal with boutiques with an e-commerce site. If you have to call or e-mail, its not worth the trouble

IMG_20140726_223926

That said, do your research, look at all the comments on every post, search the store’s hashtag for any bad reviews, and make sure you ask all the questions you can before handing over your cash!
And if you have stories of getting scammed by an Instagram boutique, leave a comment! It’s ok to name names. You won’t get deleted here;)
Happy Shopping!

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?
I have always been in to arts & crafts so when I was little my mom showed me how to sew and I copied outfits I saw on TV or in her magazines for my dolls!

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?
I would say the only thing that’s signature about my style is that I’m a sucker for classic silhouettes and I love color and prints!

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?
If I had to choose only one I’d say Marc Jacobs

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?
My current style crush would be Blake Lively, youthful, sexy but classy with a touch of edge and fun.

My ensembles depend on my mood each day, I always wear something that will make me feel happy that day!

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?
We have very few boutiques where I live so I shop in big stores and online a lot. ASOS, H&M, Express, Forever21, Macy’s and Nordstrom are at the top of my list!

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

This may sound cliché, but as far back as I can remember I have always admired fashion. I was an 80’s baby and that style was so edgy, but fun. I would always look in the magazines and say “I would love to do this” at that time I didn’t know it was called a stylist. I just knew I wanted to “dress up” people. So I started experimenting on myself with looks and as I continued to get better at it the love for fashion grew stronger. 

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE? 

A signature style, I wouldn’t say because I enjoy experimenting with a lot, but my favorite style to wear is mixing patterns. It’s a risky trend, but if executed correctly it can set your style apart from the rest. If I had to describe my style it would be “Daring Versatility”

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

This is a hard one because I adore a good bit of designers for certain things. Rachel Zoe because of her classic chic designs, Anthony Ryan Auld because he play with mixed patterns like no other, Valentino due to his effortless red carpet gowns and just about most of the ready to wear designers

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush? 

Although I will always love Rachel Zoe and her unforced style, but currently I feel like rihanna displays countless looks of style. She brings it from head to toe even in her casual state.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

I don’t have set looks out for the week. It goes with how I feel when I wake up each morning. Even if I feel like being real laid back, I still remember my brand and how I want it to be displayed.

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

I don’t shop at boutiques often, but when I do I go to Apricot Lane, POSH or sometimes frock candy. My favorite store is Urban Outfitters; I think they know me by name now (haha). I do a lot of online shopping as well.
