T.G.I.F.!! As you all know, I am a huge fan of Wildflower Cases. The brand is very much my style, and the people behind the brand are honestly some of the nicest businesswomen I've ever had service with. It's March and I still wear that original floral case 99% of the time, even after having it since October. Today I'm updating this post to let you guys know about the special offer Wildflower Cases just announced. Now through March 3rd, you can get free shipping on any order of at least two cases if you use the code 'FREESHIP' and live in the United States.
Perfect timing for this deal, since one of their best cases (pictured above) is being released again today. I ordered the gorgeous case when it was first released during the Black Friday special, but unfortunately never received it because I moved into another apartment and my local post office never forwarded any of my mail to me, phone included. It all worked out in the end though, because now I have the chance to get the case for the iPhone 5, since I'll be upgrading from my iPhone 4 next month. The best part? The new design will begin shipping within 24 hours of your order. So, what are you waiting for? Browse their site and pick the best case for you.
**In case you stumbled upon this post for the first time, I'm keeping my first purchase review below for you to read.

Phone cases are a dime a dozen. They're so easy to find that it's actually a little intimidating when blindly searching for a phone case without a particular style in mind. After browsing Etsy and Amazon, I went to Coolspotters for a few ideas and came across a phone case that totally fit my style. I visited the brand website, wildflowercases.com, and fell in love.

Celebs spotted with Wildflower cases include Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner, both of whom are known for their trendy street style. The celebrity exposure has helped the brand reach a wider audience, which in turn extended the delivery time for each case. After all, they are a new small business. When I ordered the floral case on a Saturday, the confirmation email informed me that it could take 2-5 weeks for the item to be shipped. Much to my surprise, I received another email the following Tuesday letting me know my item was dropped off at the post office! The phone case was in my mailbox the next day! I ordered the sugar skull case the day after ordering the floral print, and that one came in the mail on Thursday.

Both items only took 5 days from placing them in my shopping cart to getting them in the mail. On the second order, my packing slip had a handwritten thank you on it, which I thought was so endearing. Little personal touches like that are one of the things I love about small businesses. I wondered if Michelle wrote that 'Thank You' because she realized the same person ordered two cases in two days, haha.
The cases are $35 each, which is about the average price for a regular designer brand phone case. These are uniquely handmade and great quality, so I definitely thought the price was worth it. To stay up-to-date with upcoming iPhone 4/4s/5 cases, be sure to follow the brand on Instagram and Twitter. (And also because their pictures are really pretty.)

What do you think of Wildflower Cases? I've received a ton of compliments already, and I've only had the cases for a few days.
