​#OSONightOut

The latest #OSONightOut was my refreshing introduction to OSO: A Style Lab, which is a St. Louis-based lifestyle retailer with hip threads and other creative offerings.  During OSO’s fall preview show the boutique-style shop offered an exclusive look at some of their fall collection.
