the beginning of wild3wardrobe

I have had so much fun becoming the semibalancedmama. I have learned so much about blogging, about networking and about the satisfaction of reaching just one person. My eyes have also been opened to the amazing world of social networking and the different opportunities that are out there. 

One of those is the idea of selling new and pre-owned clothing on Instagram. Throughout the spring and summer, I found a few of my favorite shops and haven't visited a mall since. It took me awhile to pull the plug and try the idea out, but once I did I was so happy that I took the chance. I have found pieces that I never would have found in the store, and have been thrilled with the service and experience. 

While visiting my sister in San Antonio recently, we started discussing this topic and thought, "hey why not us?" We then enlisted the help of our little sister, and knew it was too good to pass up. I think any female who enjoys getting a good deal, or finding that perfect sweater, dreams about turning it into a job or at the very least a hobby! So, that is exactly what we have done! Erin, Rachel and I came together and opened up shop via Instagram, wild3wardrobe

So, why do it together? All of us have such different style, so we bring a different flare to each post. We also lead such busy and separate lives, so when one of us can't put their 100% into the business, the other two are there to help. Of course there are times where we may not agree, and one of us will think an item is perfect, only to have it shot down by the other two, but all in all it is a great checks and balances system. 

We have had so much fun hunting down deals and growing our followers, and we have also learned a lot in the process. We know it's not going to be an overnight success story and we also know that not everyone is sold on the idea of purchasing clothing from Instagram or using Paypal. But, we are learning and growing and just having fun in the mean time.

For those of you who are are new to this idea, I thought it would be a good time to explain a little bit about how it works. We find new or pre-owned clothing, while out shopping and decide whether or not it would be a good fit. We take pictures, write out a description and place it for sale on Instagram. We try to list every other week, at least 10 items. Instagram users can search hashtags or they can just be on the look out for us posting new items. If interested the buyer leaves their PayPal email to claim the item. All of our prices include shipping, which is super nice for the buyer. We then send it out either same day or next day, let the buyer know the tracking number, and hope they decide to leave some positive feedback on our page. Of course, there is some trust in this process, but we are hoping that we gain a following of buyers that leave happy feedback and let everyone out there know that we are great to work with!

Check us out, give us a like or even share the shop! We offer a 10% bundle discount (when you purchase two or more items) and would LOVE for your to find a great item and leave us some feedback. 

Make sure to follow us on Instagram and twitter!

Happy shopping,
