About

About the Owner...

Love, Louisa Boutique is a plus size online boutique founded and founded by Antoinique Halton a Full Figured Fashion blogger and recent Fashion Merchandising graduate. 

"My mission when I opened this boutique was to provide exclusive designer clothing to curvy fashionista's by connecting them to some of the most talented, stylish, and fashion- forward, Independent Plus Size designers in the Fashion Industry today.  Currently the boutique carries  exclusive designer fashions sizes 12-24."

The Story behind the store....

A look from our spring collection
A look from our spring collection

As a plus size teenager and now young adult I understood the need for unique and stylish clothing in the plus size market. As a plus size adolescent and now adult I noticed there were very few places I could shop that offered truly unique true to size clothing for a curvy fashionista like myself.

And because of that I created a boutique that reflects the opposite experience offering clothes for the ultimate "curvy-nista" like myself. Majority of my merchandise is purchased from "Indie" plus size designers who understand plus size clothing and dress because they too are plus size themselves. These designers do all the sketching, pattern making and sewing themselves and offer great quality clothing at affordable prices. My dream is small , I want to travel to curvy plus size fashionista' s throughout the Midwest and bring them curvy fashion curbside! 

Dream with me....

Fashion Trucks/ Mobile Boutiques , is a new business movement that's sweeping the nation. Lots of entrepreneurs have had great success in starting a store on wheels versus having a traditional brick and mortar storefront, by taking their business to the streets!

The advantages of having a store on wheels cut down the many expenses that a traditional store front faces dramatically. Plus with a fashion truck we'll be able to reach and connect with curvy fashionista's in our target market in different cities across the midwest which you couldn't do with a traditional brick and mortar storefront.

I strongly believe that every woman deserves the right to be stylish no matter what size you are. By donating to my business you'd be helping a young woman fresh out of college achieve her dreams. Right now my business is completely funded by me, no investors, or business loans, just me however my dreams have become bigger than my wallet. :(

With your help I can start a business debt free which would mean a great deal to me being that I have already acrued student loan debt that needs to be immediately re-paid. Funding this dream will not only help me reach my goal but join this new movement of mobile boutique entre. You'd also help fund first plus size fashion truck in the U.S!  Thank you for reading and hopefully supporting our project. Your time means alot and having your support means everything!

-Love, Louisa Boutique

Risks and challenges

I am confident that we can complete the task of purchasing a truck, renovating it and getting it on the streets of cities across the greater Midwest region. If any problems arise I will be sure to tackle them with the same amount of determination and professionalism that I've had since day one as a business owner.
