Mystique Boutique: Bargain Shop for a Good Cause

Since moving back to the St. Louis area, I’ve been volunteering with Dress for Success Midwest.  Our local Dress for Success falls under a larger umbrella organization, Connections to Success, that has an extensive plan of action to help women reach self-sufficiency.

One of the latest ventures of Connections to Success is Mystique Boutique.  And, get this.  Mystique is an upscale resale boutique on wheels.  Yes, it’s mobile!  The proceeds from boutique sales benefit Connections to Success.

I volunteered at a Mystique Boutique opening and fashion show this past weekend; and let me tell you, if you’re in or near the St. Louis area, you will want to shop Mystique.  I saw vintage jewelry, all the clothing labels we love, and lots of higher-end goods like Salvatore Ferragamo pumps.

    What a great cause. I'm wondering if KC might have a version of this.
