‘Instagram Boutiques’ are mobile fashion stores on Instagram. They are usually strictly ‘online stores’ carrying style pieces on the social media platform.
6 factors to note before patronizing ‘Instagram Boutiques’
‘Instagram Boutiques’ are strictly ‘online stores’ carrying style pieces on the social media platform but before shopping on them there are signs to note!
