GAZELLE MAGAZINE Vol. 1 Issue 3. - Page 5

PUBLISHER’S note “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” - Orson Welles In this issue, we’re covering all things style, while still keeping the heart of what we do - telling stories about women who are determined to live their best lives despite many obstacles. I am especially proud of the women in our special Miracles and Hope section who are fighting medical obstacles and finding their inner strength. Teri Griege, Raylene Hollrah and Jamie Parker, you inspire me. I am truly excited about our Fall Style issue. It has been a stylish kind of year for St. Louis. Let’s face it, it is not often that a world-class Alexander McQueen exhibit comes to town. St. Louis is making great strides toward creating a solid fashion industry. Like any other industry, it takes multiple events, thriving retail, engaged business and community leaders, and an open-minded consumer to make it happen. Something to think about ladies - if you look good, you feel good, or you at least feel better than you would if you didn’t like your outer appearance. Sometimes, it means trying new things. My hair stylist Ashjia Wraggs talked me into my latest look. I fought her along the way, but I trusted her and love my new long “do.” Any kind of change is not easy. I hope the style tips and all the style news in this issue helps you in your journey to a more fabulous you..
