Hello Fashionistas! My name is Marissa and I want to tell you a little bit about myself. I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a Bachelors degree in Fashion Retail Management & Marketing. I have been working as a Retail Manager for 15 years. I came up with the idea of a mobile boutique while I was a student at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.I decided to merge my love of fashion with my interest in traveling and the idea of a fashion truck emerged! Seriously, who doesn't love the idea of shopping from a boutique on wheels? My goal is to satisfy a niche in the retail market by providing contemporary apparel with a vintage flair curbside in Pittsburgh.
This innovative boutique brings fashion to the sidewalks of Pittsburgh in an environment that is exciting, engaging, energetic and exclusive. I want to offer fashionistas the luxury of fashion on the go with a wide selection of trendy apparel and my handmade vintage jewelry at an affordable price. I enjoy antiquing and making jewelry. I love to spend time in the outdoors with my husband riding bikes, hiking or reading a good book in the park. I also teach part time at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the Fashion department. I hope to inspire the lives of my students and help them discover their talents and passions and encourage them to follow their dreams. After all, Life is too short to not be doing what you LOVE. Every day is a gift and that is how we should be living.
