For quite some time, Amber Portwood was on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows ever since beginning her journey on MTV with her episode of 16 and Pregnant. Recently however, the drama has mostly stopped and she has been living a low-key life with her fiancè Matt Baier, and now she is opening up about all of her changes off-screen which include becoming a entrepreneur and wedding planning!
In a new interview with E! News Portwood talked about her online fashion store, Be Forever Haute. “I started the boutique because I was getting requests from Teen Mom fans all over the world about my outfits and makeup. Having an online boutique was the best way I could reach everyone,” she explained.
The online store took off quickly and Portwood now has several employees, but she is still the one running the business for the majority. “A typical day starts at 7 a.m., when I begin dealing with all the manufacturers while making sure each item is still in stock and then reordering what’s selling out. I also keep in touch with customers and spend time researching trends and planning for the next upcoming season. The women who shop on my site want to be confident, classy and sexy, no matter what their size.”
Despite being particularly busy with a burgeoning business, Portwood is also still preoccupied with planning her wedding to Baier, 45, after the pair called off last October’s nuptials. Portwood revealed that she will be designing her own wedding dress and Baier even divulged date details. “Of course I will [design my own dress]. I’m thinking something with a late ’40s to early ’50s style.” As for the date? “This October. Ideally Oct. 10 because that was the day we met in person for the first time,” Baier said, adding, “I’m so proud of Amber’s business and more importantly, how far she has come as a person. When she sets her mind to something she exceeds everyone’s expectations.”
