Accessorize & Monsoon Children in St. Louis

After twenty minutes in Accessorize & Monsoon Children, a British-based women’s accessories and children’s boutique, I found myself inspired by the stories of how each intricately designed piece in the store was globally sourced, intrigued by the eclectic styles, and impressed by the low price point.

Accessorize houses several collections of accessories, each collection carefully curated to appeal to a particular style sensibility from classic, sophisticated, trendy, to eclectic.  There’s a unique and affordable piece in this store for everyone.

You can find an Accessorize store on almost every major shopping street in London, but there are only nine stores in the US.  We’re really fortunate, then, to have an Accessorize store located in The Boulevard, St. Louis.

As a budget shopper, I was thrilled about the price-quality ratio for the range of items at Accessorize.  I can’t think of another store that offers 100% silk scarves and scarves handwoven in Italy for just over $20.  As a citizen of the world, I was even more thrilled to learn about the company’s commitment to fair trade and sustainability.

Disclosure:  I was invited to visit the store and was gifted a couple items from the boutique.  No monetary compensation was received for writing this post. As always, all the ideas and opinions expressed are my own.

      They are gorgeous, right? The prices are unbelievably low too. I must say, though, that when I saw the hats, I totally thought about you. You'll love 'em!

    What a fun looking store! I've become quite the accessory junkie since I went natural last Fall.

    In my experience the quality of their bags is not very good, but I do like their jewelry and other accessories. And if I had known that thing about the leaf earrings being real leaves, i'd have bought a pair when I was in the UK. I've never seen information on display in a UK Accessorize story giving background info about the collections, or about their ethical trading policies. I'd probably have shopped there a bit more often if I'd had that information.

    They have such cute pieces! They used to have a store here but I don't think they have any Australian stores any more, such a shame 🙁
