Goldyn Boutique Style Profile

October 8, 2013

A few weeks ago I was approached by one of Denver’s notable women’s fashion boutiques, Goldyn, to share my thoughts on my personal style for their equally notable blog.  A fan of owner Vanessa Barcus for years, I didn’t hesitate to set up an interview with their energetic, pixie-like intern Julia, who also happens to be a budding writer.  We met at Novo coffee on 6th & Gilpin.  The local coffee roaster, previously exclusive to wholesale accounts around town and bags at Whole Foods, now has two really amazing retail shops in Denver.  Check them out downtown at 16th and Glenarm or the Cherry Creek North location at 6th & Gilpin.  You can always pop in Goldyn’s store in Lohi, but if you really want an experience, get tickets to the Matthew Morris 7th Anniversary fashion show coming up on October 12th!  This post is a triple threat because I also happen to get my locks trimmed by Daniel at Matthew Morris!  Check out my style profile full interview here:

I wore: Thrifted Carol Little wrap blouse from the nineties, paired with a 3.1 Philip Lim for Target skirt (love the fit and cut on it), and taupe patent leather pumps by Jessica Simpson from Ross.  Earrings by local jeweler Madeleine O’Connell.

This is my idea of a great time. Iced coffee, my Vogue monthly and a chocolate eclair. Alone. One of my favorite Denver places to do that is Crave Dessert & Wine Bar on 14th & Champa. Then my phone rang and I got sucked into the internet right after this shot. 🙂

P.S. Crave serves up Novo coffee, one of my favorite, and local coffee roasters.
P.P.S. Yes Marion Cotillard is incredibly gorgeous and is gracing both covers- you’re not seeing doubles. Well, you are, but you know…
P.P.P.S. AS you might notice, the quality of photos here is slightly better. That’s because I am the proud mama of a new-to-me Nikon D70! Hopefully that means things will be getting a lot better around here! Use one, own one? Have tips for me? Would love to hear some pointers!

Five Points Jazz Festival: Babies, BBQ and Break Dancing…

May 23, 2012

This gorgeous duplex mansion we parked in front of. Please have me for tea if you are reading this…

Last Saturday I FINALLY made it to the 4th annual Five Points Jazz Festival. I woke up to clouds and drizzly rain coming down outside my window. That did not stop me nor my adventurous new momma friend from Toronto. She bundled that baby up in her Britax and we had a ball!
We found easy parking on the street at 24th and Washington and strolled on over to Coffee at the Point. We figured we could fuel up here, and wait for the rain to subside. We caught the timing just right and found a comfy leather couch to snuggle up on. Guess what another favorite part of mine was…they served Novo coffee!

Me in a Disigual sweater purchased at an outlet in Barcelona on our honeymoon last March, layered over a blouse from H&M, funny, also purchased on our honeymoon but at H&M in Florence. Oh, and that’s my chopped off due…from Daniel at Matthew Morris- the best.

We listened to Chris Kroger Trio, and then just as we were about to head out, we were lured back to our seats, literally lulled right back down, by this awesome group called Impromptu! Must download or find their tunes stat! They were incredible! The violinist, Katie Glassman, “returned to America from studying Gypsy Jazz in France with the renowned violinist Didier Lockwood,” and she must have picked up on the Parisian fashion, because she had an incredible sense of style- you know as those artsy musicians do- sort of Florence Welch wearing tattered Versace.

We wandered out hesitantly, we left their set early to get some fresh air and a bite. My friend fancied jerk chicken, I had a beef Philly cheese steak sandwich- nom nom NOM! Vendor food, but I remember it was called Flava and they had an Aurora location. We took snaps of the awesome architecture and stumbled upon a stage wear they had youth break dancers and hip hop. It was such a fun afternoon! I know I missed some booths, like the Colorado Creative booth and all the art installations, but for two girls traveling with a 3 month old baby, in the on and off rain, I thought we saw, heard and tasted what the jazz fest was all about.
