Plenty of Unity


The thing about Denver is this, it’s all about community and family. It really is. That was never more apparent than as seen tonight at Unity Boutique’s fall fashion show on Pearl Street in the Washington Park neighborhood. The owner, a spunky blonde named Smith, clearly had the support of her parents, neighbors and fellow business owner tenants tonight as she opened up her shop for all to see the latest goods. Her shop is chalk full of organic, recycled, vegan, sustainable and eco-conscious labels for men and women and tonight was the perfect opportunity to try on some of these threads first hand and experience the community aspect that Unity clearly is founded on.

The backyard was the perfect backdrop for TOMS shoes, (which I’m sure you have heard by now is the company that gives a pair of shoes to a child in need when you purchase a pair), Level 99 denim, Element skirts, maxi dresses, and tops by Jedidiah (the softest tees with rocker prints), Mixie and Many Belles Down, just to name a few. The d.j. wasn’t too shabby either, and even got little Emma to bounce on her daddy’s lap, in her pink, sparkly baby TOMS of course. Republic Tequila even poured drinks for the casual crowd. The boutique situated on Pearl Street, near Sushi Den, is well worth a visit!

Unity Boutique also carries Allie Pohl’s line of art inspired necklaces, Ideal Woman, to promote healthy views of women’s bodies. The store is pretty well stocked in mens clothing too, including TOMS for men, and even children’s TOMS. One of my favorite “stumble-upons” tonight was the shoe line Melissa, that make sandals and jellies out of recycled plastic. More amazing finds you’ll come across are Blue Canoe, LA Made, Vicarious by Nature, Juleselin, Chaser, Dan Eldon, and the previously mentioned lines above. A big thanks to Smith and Stephanie for the invite! I hope to be back very soon- I had my eye on that red plaid, drapey shirt by Element…
