Planning for the week ahead…

It’s late night on Sunday night and I’m sitting with my notebook open, computer on, calendar in front of me, getting ready for the busy week we have ahead of us. The week brings me meetings with new designers, a new PR / web client, the launch of the CRAVE DENVER book, an interview with Tiffany Meese of the Centennial, and a fun party at the end of the week. I want to be organized and ready so I can keep up with what we’ve got on the calendar and make room for more.  It’s important to stay on top of everything but sometimes very hard.

We’ve got so many new fashions at Fashion Denver!  Designers have been putting in more spring styles. I’m sure we’ll have a few more snowstorms in between now and spring, but our mind is with warmer temperatures.

Happy Monday!

Where does the time go?

We’ve had such a busy week here at Fashion Denver! The sunshine helped lift our spirits and through us into a work frenzy planning for spring. Currently we are working on:

– New designers for March

– First Friday March Event

– Closet makeover benefit and style event for The Gathering Place

– Our Spring Fashion Market on May 15th at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion

And! Transitioning into spring.  We know that we’ll still have some winter days of snow and chilliness, but we’d like to bring as much sunshine in as we can right now.

Tomorrow we’ll be attending Artopia and next week is the Crave Launch that we’re featured in. We’re very excited to be part of that event and the book!

Stay tuned for next weeks exciting adventures at Fashion Denver!

Thank you for coming to our celebration!

Hello community of Denver! A BIG thank you to all of you for coming out to our anniversary party celebrating 1 year of being in our new space, 7 years of Fashion Denver, and 11 years of entrepreneurship. I was overwhelmed by the amount of people that came out for the night!!

If you weren’t able to make the event, here are 2 videos that captured the event.

Busy Bees

We’ve been working up a storm at the Fashion Denver headquarters! Getting all of our inventory from the amazing designers organized and priced and it’s been a fun process! I’m happy that we’re over 3/4ths of the way done!! We’ve also been getting ready for our Anniversary Soiree happening on the 4th of February!  I can’t believe that it’s been 11 years since I started my first business and 7 years since I started Fashion Denver!! Oh how time has flown!!

The first couple weeks of January were a little slow which was good in hindsight because it allowed us to get organized! It’s been crazy busy this week, local fashion flying out the door!  It was very inspiring to have a few people come in who just purchased items last week and wanted to know what was new!  We have stylists, teachers, lawyers, photographers, models, and students coming in and it’s brought us so much energy!!!

Stay tuned with all of the fun things we’ve got coming up and thank you for your continued support!!


Style File: Morgan at Studio Salon

Morgan, stylist at Studio Salon

We love our friends at Studio Salon! Morgan takes a break from cutting hair looking stylish as always.  I love her simple black dress paired with grey sweater and leggings with blue tights under them.  This dress seems so versatile and one you can dress up and dress down.  I’m also loving the shoes!  Just a sample of everyday style!

Winter Fashions! Baby, it’s cold outside!

Winter fashion can be hard sometimes! When the high for the day is 10 degrees, it’s difficult to not want to wear a big pair of comfy pants and a your favorite hoody.  Today, the fabulous Adriana Neves, designer behind AND Jewelry stopped by as we’re in the midst of planning her Valentine’s trunk show.  Of course I had to capture a picture in her sassy winter outfit!

Things I love about her outfit: Her sexy jeans paired with a great pair of boots paired with a fabulous leather jacket paired with a warm scarf.  Her gloves were in her bag and a hat would make this outfit complete as she heads out into the cold nights air.

Let’s see, as I write this, it’s 1 degree outside!! 1 degree?!  It really doesn’t seem that cold.

Snow day!

It’s chilly and snowy outside and warm in my apartment. It’s the kind of day where I think I’ll stay in my flannel pjs. What’s your ideal stay in outfit?

If only I had a fireplace…..
