One of my favorite things (even though it makes Mr. M a little nervous) is discovering local boutiques. St. Louis has a vibrant shopping scene with so many popular choices. But what I really love is getting to know new shops!
Mas + Ford (here) – owned and operated by Brentwood native Jules Roberts is a recent addition to our local shopping scene. “I was born and raised here. In fact, my family lives on the same street I grew up on, which is bizarre and fun all at the same time!” says Roberts. Her family includes a husband and 2 sons, Mason & Ford for whom the shop is named. With an extensive retail background including stints at GAP and Lululemon, it was a natural transition for Roberts to one day open her own store. Although she considered a brick and mortar location, Roberts explains, “With social media being such a powerful tool, plus constant access to smart phones, it was a no brainer to open an online boutique!”
Mas + Ford stocks on-trend women’s tops, pants, dresses and accessories. Fun for your fall wardrobe are pieces inspired by the 70’s trend like tie dye dresses or a pair of flared leggings i.e..”fleggings”. “Fleggings will be your best friend this fall!” promises Roberts. “Imagine a dressed up bohemian, chic inspired yoga pant.” Mas + Ford always has free shipping on all orders and keeps merchandise at a very reasonable price point “I’m a deal finder myself, plain and simple” she says. Now that’s a philosophy I can relate to!
