Noodle Candy

December 30, 2009

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Sorry I haven’t posted anything exciting lately. I had a nice, low key holiday and I hope you all did as well. I received four necklaces for Christmas to jazz up my necky-noodle this new year! One was a chain necklace with different shades of purple pearls hanging on it from my sweet beau. I wore it to grab coffee with the girls at City O City this Sunday and complemented it with a ruffled, purple blouse, found at a thrift store, jeans, pink patent leather, round toed heels, and a metallic purple Big Buddha bag- a whole lotta color for me! A sweet sister, my beau’s sis, named Noura gifted me with an amazing, Chanel-like rope necklace with a big, black rose and beads from New York & Co, who, by the way is having a 70% off sale right now. Very feminine and the perfect accent for work or fun, it’s the perfect necklace! I’ve worn it several times so far including with my Christmas gettup- a black tee, black harem pants and black BCBG boots. I also received a very cool, “Ideal Woman” necklace from my designer friend Renee Mudd, of The-Intersection. The artist, Allie Pohl, is an adorable, pint size, spitfire new on the Denver art scene from New York. Allie Pohl aims to create awareness surrounding societal views of what the “ideal” female body should look like. True to form, the “Ideal Woman” necklace resembles that of a certain plastic girl with a capital “B,” as in Barbie. My necklace is purple, proud and loud, and I can’t wait to wear it. For more information on where you can find an Allie Pohl necklace of your own, or to find out where Pohl’s art is displayed, visit her site. Lastly, I was so excited when on Monday morning I checked my mail before leaving for work and found a Christmas surprise from my best friend Dani Rose in NYC. She sent me a beautiful, gold heart necklace from By Boe on Prince Street in NYC. It’s delicate, modern and will be my new favorite everyday necklace. Dani has THE best taste in jewelery. A visit to Boe’s website today, and I found out that By Boe distributes their amazing jewelery to boutiques dotting across Colorado. From all the major ski towns,Telluride, Aspen, and Crested Butte, and Breckenridge, to Denver, at the Artisan in Cherry Creek, and the floral shop Moss Pink in Park Hill, you too can find a piece of Boe. Thank you so much for the amazing neck candy everyone! I am on an accessories high!

So Long Loft-22…

December 17, 2009

Bad news to those of you ladies of Larimer Street shopping familiarity, our friends at Loft-22 have decided to pursue other career interests. This is just another sad tale of yet another boutique shutting it’s doors here in Denver, but we wish them the best in their future endeavors. I have no doubts about the very talented owners, Britt and Kelly, landing superb, fab careers. So the sale tags are hung- 30% off on all clothing and shoes. Also, on Christmas Eve, all Larimer shops will have festive treats and drinks, there will be carolers a-singing and free horse drawn carriage rides! Fun!

On the lines of boutique closings, a another sad reporting, The 400, the shop that sold sneaker-head gear had moved to Platte and 15th, and I recently found out from the friendly folks at Emage that they are no longer in business. No sale in sight for them, but head over to Emage for a plethora of low top Nike SB’s and boasting free shipping until 2010!

On good news note, the folks at The Perfect Petal in the Highlands told me last week that the original boutique that started it all for them, Posh, is going to reopen it’s glamorous doors on Larimer Street; most likely where Gelazzi was. This is all hearsay, but watch for Denver retail changes!

I want these!!! From House of Holland for Pretty Polly, to the shelves of UK department kingdom, Selfridges, to you in a to-go coffee cup comes, hot tights! The packaging is marketing at it’s finest, thanks to UK’s BMB Agency. The tights de jour come to you steaming with “vavoom” and are an example of the punky fashion seen on funky Brits. Get a sense of the urban underground culture by slipping on a pair alphabet tights or the limited edition, “Want Party” tights! Also spotted in my search were House of Holland’s clever tees that I’ve seen hot models like Agyness Deyn and Carrie Bradshaw in SATC movie wearing. They’re on sale via their website- 11 british pounds- fabby not shabby!
