Finally is right!! I click on these articles to see the ridiculous photos but this woman has style. She gets an A+ from me.

Agreed. For a long time, I just looked at this column for the laughs and to see what not to wear. However, this lady is well dressed and has some style. Nice to see a person who is actually stylish for a change.

Do you mean the original reporter, Caitlin? She moved to New York City, I believe.

You know how I celebrate my beauty? Not worrying about dressing up every single time I leave the house. I get tired of hearing the same comment from those scouted, less sweatshirts and leggings. I'm sorry I don't dress myself to impress for every outing I make. It's cool that you're out and about and look stylish doing so, but worry about yourself. What I would like to see less of in Lawrence, people telling other people how to dress. Do whatever you want.

p.s. she is really quite lovely. It just gets old hearing that same thing every time.
