MILLEDGEVILLE — The site of Karla Boston’s large pink truck will not only pique the curiosity, but a look inside may just whet an appetite for fashion.
Go-Go Chic is a mobile boutique that aims to offer affordable name brand clothing for the everyday woman on the go.
“The biggest thing that sets us apart from other clothing retail businesses as that we can come to your home or work, which gives you the convenience of shopping without the hassle,” said Boston.
Go-Go Chic offers everything from private shopping parties to personal style tips. Clothing features a variety of brands and sizes.
“I had one customer tell me that they felt as if they had just been to 10 different stores just by looking through our selection,” said Boston.
The mobile boutique is also a perfect fit for the woman who wants nice clothes, but hates to shop, she said.
“I can also be your personal stylist. Clients who don’t really like the idea of looking through a lot of clothes and trying to decide what looks good and what doesn’t can come in, sit in our little waiting area and just tell me what type of style they’re looking for along with their size and I’ll make the selections for them,” she said.
Along with a waiting area, the truck also has a dressing room for shoppers to try on their selections and see firsthand whether it’s the right fit.
Launching the business did not happen over night. Although Boston is the owner, the entire family has been actively involved in the creation and the success of it since day one. When her husband, John T. Boston II, became a pastor at Milledgeville’s Ebenezer Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Boston wanted to work in a business that not only gave her the freedom to be her own boss, but also provided the time she needed to spend with her 2-year-old daughter.
