    How you can rock Viola Davis' stunning Golden Globe Afro yourself | Elizabeth Wellington
    I've been obsessed with Viola Davis' massive Afro from the moment she hit the Golden Globe red carpet Sunday in a slinky, curve-complimenting Brandon Maxwell gown. Like, I gasped. I literally gasped. That hair was amazing, and though Davis, 52, has killed it on previous red carpets (remember the phenomenal almost neon yellow Michael Kors that Davis wore to last year's Golden Globes?)

If both of these South Street entrepreneurs — Bus Stop is on Fourth Street just above South, and M Concept is on the 1500 block of South Street — are willing to venture across the great Broad Street divide, then surely their customers will too.

    Why this 'Across Broad' retail collaboration represents the future of retail | Elizabeth Wellington
    If the owners of Bus Stop Boutique and M Concept Shop are willing to cross the South Broad Street divide, surely their customers will, too. At least they hope so; their survival depends on it. Hence their new Across Broad retail collaboration.
