What’s Your Style?

What's Your Style for Home, Decor, Festivals and Clothing? 

September is a super time to rethink the styles we surround ourselves with, and whether we'd like to make any adjustments or outright changes to coincide with the changing season. So how do you express yourself in clothes, your home and decorations? No matter your style, this issue has some tips…

September 2017 Around Town

Midwest Regional Bank recently opened a Chesterfield location at 17290 N. Outer 40 Road.

Fall Fashion Picks

Velvet blazers are now a "hot," fall fashion clothing item. Sparkly boots are in style. Chocolate brown is the new winter neutral. And, Elle magazine asserts that fall 2017's top runway trends are "Americana vibes, a powerful way to wear red, and vintage-inspired everything."

Alas, this summer, Rombach family members closed their operations indefinitely. For decades, the business at 18639 Olive Street Road offered produce, hayrides, children's activities, a country store and lots of photo ops. Through teary eyes, many Chesterfield…
