5 Stylish St. Louis-Area Boutiques We Love

I used to love shopping. When I was stressed I would head to the store for a bit of retail therapy. But after becoming a mom, shopping time has become much harder to find. Hello, Amazon Prime!

But, there are still times when I can steal away, grab a coffee and hit a couple of my favorite places. Here’s a list of our current loves for every budget.

  1. Leopard Boutique
    This adorable shop is locally-owned by a fellow mama! When she launched her first location in Webster Groves, a few years ago it was so popular she has since opened a location in Maplewood and St. Charles. Leopard is a unique shopping experience because you get a boutique vibe without the usual higher boutique prices. I love it for basic pieces like cute tees and sweaters.

  2. Blush
    This sweet, boho shop is tucked into Kirkwood’s downtown area and has been a staple of fashionable moms for years. The service is friendly but not pushy. And there’s a charming selection of designer pieces displayed next to locally-made goods. Tip: They don’t have an active website, so if you want to check them out online before you go, hit up their feed on Instagram.

  3. Paperdolls
    Similarly to Leopard, Paperdolls has a unique boutique selection of designer pieces paired with more budget-friendly options. This shop is perfect for feminine pieces and gifts for friends.

  4. Civil Alchemy
    This modern general store in Webster Groves is our go-to shop for gifts. They have an ever evolving collection of clothing and as a bonus, they have a gorgeous selection of flowers, men’s and kitchen items. The self-serve flower bar is a unique way to grab a bouquet on your way to a dinner party, or spend more time on a beautiful succulent arrangement for a friend. It’s truly special.

  5. Fauxgerty
    Also owned by a local mother, Fauxgerty’s clothing and signature faux leather jackets focus on sustainability. Their designs are constructed with eco-friendly, vegan fabric and made in ethical factories with fair-wage practices. Shop online or at their Lafayette Square location.
