Southampton - Rue La La, a Members-only online shopping destination dedicated to a life of style, has joined forces with American actress Busy Philipps to curate a one-of-a-kind "Doing A Little Good" Boutique. The Boutique will launch on March 1 at 11 a.m. and will feature Busy's personally selected style finds for moms and kids. In turn, Rue La La is donating to Philipps' charity of choice, the Step Up Women's Network, in her name.

Busy, mom to three-year old Birdie Leigh, is known for her casual, fun yet chic style which is reflected through the products that she has hand-selected to be featured in her Rue La La Boutique. The Boutique will feature a number of Busy's favorite brands, including Twirl & Twigs, Alex Toys, Tibi and Ports 1961. Through Rue La La's donation, Busy's Boutique will support the Step Up Women's Network, an organization that helps to motivate those who have faced abuse, addiction, and/or violence by providing them with resources needed for career advancement and after-school programs.

"Step Up Women's Network is a phenomenal program that is very dear to my heart," said Philipps. "Through my 'Doing A Little Good' Boutique I hope to raise awareness for the organization and encourage moms to enjoy shopping while helping to call attention to a great cause."

Rue La La's "Doing A Little Good" campaign debuted in 2011 and offers Members insider access to the personal style of notable celebrity parents, while giving celebrities an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for select charities.

"At Rue La La we strongly believe in the power of giving back," said Steve Davis, president. "We are thrilled to be working with Busy Philipps, and encourage our fans and Members to learn more about the Step Up Women's Network."
