BLESSED AND BOUJEE BOUTIQUE Did you know “Boujee” means luxurious in lifestyle, yet humble in character? Blessed & Boujee Boutique inspires women to be strong and independent and encourages them to shop confidently! Owner Amanda Marie created this one-stop fashion boutique to meet all women’s needs. Amanda as a plus-size woman has struggled with her weight all her life. When she found attire that made her feel amazing, she knew she wanted other women to feel confident in their skin too! She wanted them to feel as excited as she did the first time a dress fit perfectly. And that’s how Blessed & Boujee Boutique was born! This New Boujee Boutique offers lingerie, accessories, shoes, fun gifts, and stylish clothing for all women including those “Blessed with Curves”!
