Spirit Turned Outward 4/19/2008

My favorite store, I am not a habitual shopper so don't get to ""LOOKS"" frequently, but it's where I go to buy.\r I suppose the owner and her choices have grown up with me, but here I am in my mid 50's and it's the one store I shop where I can still be entertained by the process -- I have never walked out of there without success -- whether I am trying to figure out what I can wear to the ""over the top"" Bat Mitzvah for my niece in LA ( an event I had mixed feelings about attending and yes, it was as wild as I expected -- no understatement, but a blast) or for a variation on an old favorite. My basic wardrobe requires little effort or store hopping (an activity I dislike and really won't do). I thrive on small wearable intrigue. Such purchases made over the years at LOOKS are still interesting thrown on with a pair of black jeans; they often garner a comment - a compliment. If you associate style with an icon -- Audrey (or Katherine) Hepburn -- Coco Chanel -- Diane Keaton -- the choices are endless, and if you're looking to update or to maintain your variation on that ""certain Cambridge look"" -- What is it?-- ""Bohemian aging gracefully"" -- ""Hippie old, but chic"" -- you can do that here too. Really. I've discovered that women who make it a point of going to LOOKS when they must buy, seem to discover each other out and about. More for the subtle style choices that lead us to ask where something was purchased -- than recognizing one another as frequent shoppers. Most of the LOOKS women I've met don't shop as an activity but do care about what they wear and know where they will be able to buy the clothes they're really going to wear-- so there's a small sisterhood. I'm sometimes embarrassed that my interest in clothes has never waned, but a young woman in my writer's workshop shared a phrase ""Style is spirit turned outward"" and It stuck with me. I'm okay with the idea that some of my spirit is worn -- and I can cloak it at LOOKS. more

They Should Call It ""Dirty Looks"" 4/24/2006

The clothes seem interesting at first but the cuts tend to be matronly, and the women on staff couldn't be less cool or less helpful, in spite of the fact the store is almost always empty. Don't bother interrupting their incessant self-absorbed conversations to get some customer service -- not worth the trouble. Pros: occasional finds Cons: overpriced, matronly clothes, horrible service more
