Rung & Sprung Boutiques’ Blogger Party – Shopping for a Great Cause

Thursday night, I had the awesome opportunity to attend a blogger event at two second-hand boutiques in St. Louis.  The connected shops, Rung and Sprung, offer second-hand and vintage finds in a boutique atmosphere for a personalized and unique shopping experience.

Rung and Sprung are non-profits, with proceeds benefiting the Women’s Foundation of St. Louis (which distributes resources to women and
children all over the St. Louis area) and Nurses for Newborns.

Rung offers professional clothing for women at a reasonable price, while Sprung specializes in clothing and other items for pregnant women and children. 

Loving the Arch-themed books!!

Looking through the racks and aesthetically-pleasing displays, I saw items that ranged from vintage to Target to Dolce & Gabanna.

The boutiques also showcase art from local female artists, including jewelry designer Erica Dunk of Hyper Haute jewelry.

Guests at the Blogger event enjoyed light bites (including yummy cupcakes), cocktails, fun fashion trivia, and a fashion show featuring on-trend looks available at Rung Boutique.

It was great to see a few familiar blogger faces, such as Carmen from The Ruby Zipper (who is also a stock associate at Rung), as well as to meet some new ones like Summer from Hipster Hijabis and Latoya of Latoya Elnora.

I enjoyed chatting with the Executive Director of Rung and Sprung Boutiques, Mallarie Zimmer.  Besides the fact that she was a delightful person, what struck me was the level of passion and commitment to servicing the community through both the boutique experience and the charitable giving.

I can’t wait to get back out there to pick up some amazing and unique pieces for both me and my kids.  It truly is fashion with a heart!

P.S.  This event was possible due to the partnership of Rung and Sprung with Alive Magazine, Ivy Hill Boutique, Pinnacle Vodka, David Kilper, The Dam, Leopard Boutique, Byrd Style Lounge, Bronx Diba Shoe Outlet, and Hyper Haute.
