Happy Friday! I’m not sure what excites me more: that Ladue News made me a feature in their September issue, or that the piece features my original photography throughout the issue? Or, is it that I got to share my in-depth thoughts about what it has meant to build a fashion business as a Black woman? Surely, the answer is all those things make this feature extra special.
Ladue News is a local St. Louis publication that has been delivering community highlights for over 3 decades. I’m honored to be featured in the current issue. If you’re in the St. Louis area, grab a copy! If you’re not, be sure to check out the digital issue here or the online story here.
Here’s a peek inside:
Thank you so much to Ladue News the special feature. Special thank you to Bethany Christo for writing the piece. And, thank you for reading because you make these opportunities possible for me.
July has been one of the toughest months of my life (read more about my recent surgery here). It’s also been one of the most rewarding because major projects I’ve been working on are coming to fruition.
Today, I’m so excited to share one of them–my full page in the August 2019 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. Y’all, I got to share my St. Louis with Good Housekeeping readers. The piece includes a curated list of favorite things to do and see in the Lou, and my original photography showcases it.
The issue is on shelves now. Grab a copy and let me know what you think. Of course, here’s a sneak peek.
As always, thank you so much for supporting Economy of Style!

I’m a huge fan of Kindred, a collective boutique in West County Center. I always find the coolest items from the 7 boutiques housed in this one store (see evidence here). So, I’m beyond thrilled to be representing Kindred, along with fellow bloggers Mary Powers and Christine Frisella, on the cover of the latest issue of Town & Style. If you’re in the St. Louis area, grab a copy. If not, get a peek at the issue online here.

I’m so excited to share that I was featured, along with some of my favorite fashion influencers, by Sisters from AARP. This new AARP venture is a weekly newsletter that celebrates black women. And, I did I mention it was free? The newsletter covers everything from style to health to money. I turned 40 last year, and the notion of owning your style at any age has become even more important to me. So, I’m so thrilled to be featured in this style piece by Sisters from AARP. Take a peek below, but go here to read the entire article. By the way, it was written by the fabulous Sarah Greaves-Gabaddon, who you may know as JetSetSarah.
