Definition: Boutique


n. From the French word for "shop." A small shopping outlet, especially one that specializes in elite and fashionable items such as clothes and jewelry. In the strictest sense of the word, boutiques would be one-of-a-kind but more generally speaking, some chains can be referred to as boutiques if they specialize in particularly stylish offerings.

I t's one of my goals to put up a boutique of my own. The plan is in the works. I intend to sell clothes and accessories from South East Asian designers like Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. And also some home accessories. Just keeping my fingers crossed and praying with faith that this will all come true
