When Modern Day Boutique popped up in Forest, the owner, Tosha Worrell, dreamed of filling a niche for casual, affordable women’s clothes. Walking into the store, you absorb a hip vibe with the industrial metal shelving, high ceilings and vibrant blue walls.
Worrell fills the racks with better versions of your wardrobe necessities like a black sweatshirt with contrasting floral-print sleeves or a striped, tunic t-shirt with a suede pocket.
These items, explains Worrell, were handpicked for the local boots-and-jeggings crowd.
Talking about their popular tunic, she says, “It’s super soft. It’s oversized. And everybody loves mustard.”
Also, she can get it in your size from extra small to 3XL. That’s one of the things Worrell loves most about working with customers.
“When someone comes in and says, ‘You don’t have my size,’ I say, “Try it on. Try it on.”
Worrell points out, “They leave feeling a whole lot better.”
While this welcoming establishment is a boutique in name, service and atmosphere, the prices are anything but high. You get the VIP treatment on a Target budget. Modern Day Boutique has marked a solid notch in that niche.
