Inspired to align her passion with fashion with a lifelong dream, she began selling clothes out of a polka dot suitcase she kept in her car. Starting out as a mobile boutique traveling to client’s homes, she decided to take her mobile business to a stationary location as gas prices were over $4.00 a gallon.
On July 9, 2011, her dreams became a reality as 28boutique was born. Angel was offered a small room to rent to sell her merchandise and over the next five years, her clientele and inventory grew. In March 2015, she was blessed to move her thriving business into her first store front at 4605 N. Evanston Avenue.
Always one to set goals and accomplish them, in the next five years, Angel plans to have multiple 28boutique locations, launch a men's clothing line and own the buildings that house 28boutique.
28boutique’s desire is for a woman to feel secure in any piece that she purchased whether online or in the store. Angel said, “I would like all of our clients to feel confident and sexy in her piece.” The 28boutique’s staff’s goal is for the customer to feel secure and assured that they’ve answered all questions regarding the garment, their online policies and any sizing questions.
Inspired by fashion from all walks of life, genres and time periods, Angel’s passion for fashion is still as strong as it was when she was a teenager. She said, “What inspires me in my industry is that it changes from day to day. Fashion has a way of repeating itself, but it comes back better. I love that!”
