Lied Center celebrates two decades of elevating performing arts

Great story!

It's also worth noting that the architect holding the papers in the first photo of the photo gallery is Allen Wiechert. He built the Lied and is still involved at there as the Audience Services Coordinator. He's an amazing man and was my boss the three years I worked at the Lied Center as a student. He's dedicated to the Lied Center, Lawrence and the arts. Give him a high five the next time you go to a show.

Lawrence Laundry: Secrets of a style scout

Hey, Cleo! I'm taking on a few new projects so I need to let a few old ones go. Besides, this gig is way too awesome for me to selfishly hold onto.

Lawrence Laundry: Secrets of a style scout

Thin_mint, I'll have my eye out. However, I'll have to find you in the next week, as I'm stepping down from Style Scout at the end of January. It has been a blast, but my days are calling me to spend them in less fashionable ways.

Lawrence Laundry: Secrets of a style scout

You caught me, clovis. Though, I have to say, the "20-something hipster type" is largely indicative of Lawrence's overall style.

Another confession: Before reflecting on the men I've scouted over the past year, I never realized how much men wearing hats charmed me.

Curly hair care: Stylists encourage women to ‘embrace it,’ not straighten it

I straightened by hair for years before finally embracing the curl. I got the Deva cut at Salon Lucca and have been really pleased with it. No more triangle head!

Ha! I'm happy to report that the published version is correct on that one.

The moron is me! Thanks for the catch, cutthroat. Dear editor, save me from musical ignorance.

Style icons Keaton, Mirren provide fashion inspiration

Off the top of my head, I would suggest these stores for mature women's fashion:

Nomads (725 Massachusetts): While a young woman owns the shop and it boasts the idea of youthful "travel wear," I think one could find some really comfortable and stylish gems in here.

Saffee's (911 Massachusetts): While Saffee's touts itself as a store for middle-aged women, I think an older woman could find some really great items in here! It's all about mixing and matching to find outfits that work for you specifically. If you like the outfit, it fits, it doesn't show cleavage or too much leg, and it's not neon in color, then it's age appropriate.

Spectator's (710 Massachusetts): I once stumbled into Spectator's one Saturday morning only to find a group of mature women standing around drinking mimosas! Even if Spectator's doesn't have age-appropriate clothing, I'd show up just for the drinks. (but I promise they have some great items!)

Weaver's (901 Massachusetts): And, of course, Weaver's, which has been in Lawrence since 1857. There's always great clothing options for older women in this store.

Hope this helps!
