St. Louis is Like a Vingtage Handbag in Your Grandma's Attic, So Says Magazine


"Style has come home to roost in St. Louis," according to Southern Living magazine.

The Bible of southern decorum and design visits Washington Ave. and the downtown Garment District this month. Author Jennifer Cole was particularly impressed with boutiques The Time and Charm.

But what I most enjoyed about the article was Cole's description of St. Louis as being like an old purse, albeit a designer one.

Cole writes of 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."
