Reality tv star, Toya
Carter Wright, recently launched a new website for her clothing store called Garb Boutique. Toya co-starred with "Tiny" (former member of Xscape and wife of Atlanta rapper, T.I.) on BET's "Tiny and Toya" and now has her own reality show "Toya A Family Affair" on the same network.
In October of 2010, Toya opened Garb Boutique in her hometown of New Orleans, LA. From the reality tv show fame, Toya has built quite a large fan base from all over the United States. Many of her fans who do not reside in New Orleans have been asking her for months (via her twitter account) when Garb Boutique would be available for online shopping. Well today, Toya announced on twitter that the website for Garb Boutique has finally launched and is up and running at shopgarbboutique.com .
Most of the cute clothes seen worn by the reality star (and recent newlywed) on her tv show and at various red carpet events can be found at Garb Boutique. Ever since her store opened last October, she has been retweeting pictures of her fans in their cute "Garb" outfits bought right out of the boutique. Toya has given a unique nickname to customers of her store. She refers to anyone that has ever shopped in her store as "Garbies". She even sells cute t-shirts that read, "I'm A Garbie" on the front.
Here's a recent picture that Toya twitpic'd of herself getting prepped for the Hoodie Awards in an "I'm A Garbie" t-shirt.
Now everybody can become "Garbies" by shopping at Garb Boutique online. Due to high anticipation of the website's launch, the "Shop" feature is down right now as it has crashed due to high traffic. Toya announced on twitter that it is being upgraded now. In the meantime, if you are in New Orleans you can visit Garb Boutique at 2108 Magazine St. New Orleans, LA 70130. Check back on the site later or follow Toya's twitter for an update on when it is back up and running.
UPDATE: shopgarboutique.com is now back up and running.
