UPDATE – Amber’s “I’m Going to Portwood Your A**” hoodie (sans machete) drew a lot of criticism online for seemingly promoting domestic violence. Amber has been arrested multiple times for domestic assault, and her anger issues have been well documented during her time on Teen Mom OG. I’m not sure what else Portwooding someone’s a** could mean, unless it’s maybe date you, give you access to her bank account, and help you publish a book.

Regardless, Amber took to Instagram to assure everyone that PortwoodAF does not promote violence of any kind. Here’s the image she shared followed by her statement:

There is only room for positive people and energy in this space.💕 If you feel any negative or hateful feelings towards a person then there is no need for you here. My new line #portwoodaf does not condone any sort of violence and comments referring that is so do not belong here. This was a fun project that I made taking different sayings from supporters and started wearing myself at first and now sharing with you. Stay positive loves🤗 and don’t make misconceptions for what certain things mean. #sendinglove #beautifulsouls #positivevibesonly❤️

What happened to Forever Haute?

Amber Portwood launched the Forever Haute online clothing boutique in 2016. “Amber continues to be a living inspiration for her many fans from all over the world in everything that she does,” the website’s “About Me” read. More from the About Me:

After an outpouring of questions from her fans about all of the stylish outfits and accessories worn by her on her shows, Amber soon realized that even her every day wardrobe impacted them in a very positive way. In true Amber style, she decided that by opening up a boutique, she could share her personal fashion choices with her fans while continuing to send love and inspiration to them daily. When she asked her fans what they thought about her idea of opening her own boutique, many responded with love and support and were eager to see Amber’s dream become a reality. Soon after, Amber started working on making Forever Haute what it is today. Forever Haute is not just a clothing line, it is another way Amber can positively inspire her fans and empower them with the message behind her boutique. Be Classy. Be Sexy. Be Haute.

It wasn’t long before the shop came under fire for allegedly selling clothes available elsewhere online — sometimes for much cheaper. Not only were the sites selling what appeared to be the same clothes, the photos and models were the same as well.

Amber took to Twitter and Portwooded the critics’ a**es. “Hi loves! So I’m getting a lot of questions about my clothes,” Amber began. “I need people to understand this is a boutique and I have all rights to the models I use because I go straight to the brand. People will take these pics illegally and send you a completely different product which has happened to me many times!! Lol so understand these are 4-5 star clothes straight from the retailer. You have to have a business license IRS Id among other things. So please don’t buy something for cheaper and get something completely different. Sending love everyone?”

There were also some issues with Forever Haute’s return policy that made headlines at the time.

Despite the controversies, Amber continued to grow the Forever Haute empire by adding a makeup line in March of 2017. Amber promised to deliver makeup tutorial videos to help promote the cosmetics line, but I don’t believe those ever came to fruition.

Forever Haute stuck around for a while, but the website quietly went offline in 2018. Despite the disappearing act, there were reports that the boutique was going to live up to the “forever” in Forever Haute by eventually re-launching.

“Amber wants to sell out all of the inventory from the current boutique,” a source told The Ashley in June of 2018. “After that’s done, she really wants to switch to selling only maternity and plus-sized clothing…Right now the clothing on the boutique is just average stuff that people can get anywhere,” the source added. “It’s pretty generic.”
Unfortunately, Forever Haute became For The Time Being Haute and never returned.
