Craze Spotlight: Rumors Boutique
Every time the Craze ladies visit Richmond, stopping by Rumors Boutique is always a must! It’s one of our fave boutiques and they always have one-of-a-kind and stylish pieces. The store has such a cool and unique atmosphere with hype music and crazy decorations.
We had the chance to sit down with the owners and they’re just as cool as their store! We met inside this cute little pub right down the street from the store for drinks and food.
Casey and Marshe
Here they are in front of their store =)
They met in 2003 at a party and the next day had a lemonade stand to make enough money for Chinese food. They ended up becoming best of friends and after graduation decided to live off of pretzels and white rice to save up for their boutique.
They opened in 2007 and started out as boutique selling independent designer clothes from several different countries. They had lines from South Africa, Belgium, Finland, Tokyo and France. They would have real live bands play in their store and even sleep there sometimes. They would also throw parties and have fundraisers.
But after still being broke months later, the owners decided to revamp and transform the store into Richmond’s first thrift boutique. It was a success! They added consignment to the mix and Rumors Boutique became a HUGE hit for a shopping spot in Richmond.
Needless to say, their story is unique and quite similar to ours. We are all close friends and are willing to do anything and everything to bring our dreams to life. They gave us some great tips and advice to improving our business and making it successful.
Sitting down and picking their brains a little was great inspiration for us to keep working hard and keep our friendship and business strong.
If you’re ever in Richmond, VA, check out Rumors Boutique at 404 North Harrison St.

Craze Looks: Our Picks
Here are our favorite items from our new collection and how we would wear them. The collection launches tomorrow at noon. Be sure to visit the boutique at www.crazeboutique.bigcartel.com.
Chey’s Pick: Proud Mary
Proud Mary sequined jacket is just one of those pieces that immediately catch your eye. I love the black and gold sequins and loose fitting look. You can dress it up or down which makes it perfect for a night on the town, having a drink at a lounge, shopping or a lunch date with your best girlfriends.
Porter’s Pick: Dexter
This is my favorite piece because I love to be comfortable and stylish at the same time. With Dexter, you can definitely do that.
Destinee’s Pick: Pam
I remember picking this skirt up when we went shopping and insisting that we get it. I love the femininity of pleats and unique color combination. A-Line skirts are suitable for every body type and I can see this item being dressed up or down with ease.
Bri’s Pick: Pirate II
Let’s Go Pirates..! Pirate II is one of my fave pieces from our new collection for a very simple reason. Although I know my fellow ladies of Craze would beg to differ, it reminds me of the REAL HU (Hampton). That’s why I love it and subsequently, why I chose it.
Skipped The Black Friday Craze? Be On Time For Cyber Monday!
Let us all admit that the Black Friday shopping fiasco was ‘hell in a handbag.’ Never have I experienced such a nightmare as I have on every Black Friday I’ve participated in. Between the early hours, mad dashes to the merchandise, arguments and the occasional scuffle (That I’ve only witnessed of course) I’ve had enough! I promise, I won’t be going back next year and neither should you.
Let’s get to the meat of the matter, fashionistas! On Monday, Craze Boutique will be having a Cyber Monday sale. Cyber Monday is the Black Friday of the internet if you weren’t informed before reading this. Craze merchandise will be marked down, maybe the piece you’ve been saving up your spare change to buy will be less than what you planned on paying!
Enjoy a 25% discount on items such as
Watch The Throne
& much more!
