Consumer boutiques are a big trend in e-commerce right now. We also think they happen to be a very smart idea. Much like RevolveClothing.com's new boutique program, shoppers on Boutique.com will be able to create their very own online store.

Brands rumored to be involved in the launch include Oscar de la Renta and Tory Burch. More to come on Wednesday--we'll keep you posted.
