…In which Southern Living Magazine (note: not Midwestern Living Magazine (question: real magazine?)) gives mad propers to the brand newly revitalized downtown St. Louis. Hear the gush:
Style has come home to roost in St. Louis. Downtown is experiencing a major revitalization, powered by a brigade of young artists and designers who are giving the area a new lease on life, much like that vintage Chanel handbag you found in your grandmother’s attic.
This, I believe, is relevant news even for those of us whose grandmothers never had attics or handbags or sometimes even hands to hold a bag or fruit. It is relevant because “style”, that rare, winged bird, has finally returned home. Thank you Jennifer V. Cole for the metaphor.
