Aspen Real Life Goes Shopping

During Aspen Fashion Week 2012 I met up with STYLE 2020, professional and highly experienced stylists who help their clients discover their individual signature style. Meeting up in local boutique, Pitkin County Dry Goods, I experienced a taste of what STYLE 2020 offers and I was reawakened to the importance of incorporating fashion into our every day living. Goodbye frumpy, hello beauty!

Aspen Fashion Week 2012:

During Aspen Fashion Week 2012, I was inspired by a presentation put on by STYLE 2020. The model, STYLE 2020 Operations Manager Michelle Devereux, stood in the front of the room where a stylist from STYLE 2020, Zeena Abidi, spoke of the importance of simplifying by wearing something to work that can easily be transitioned into evening-wear.

Devereux wore a little black dress that had strips of lace on the sides with a nude panel backing, a beige blazer to match and black pumps. To make the transition, off came the blazer and out came a beautiful diamond pendant necklace along with dangling diamond earrings to match from Black Starr & Frost. The pumps were exchanged for a higher heel with a sheen and voila, the transformation was complete.

When the presentation was over I walked out of the room and a light bulb went off over my head. For a while now I have been experiencing fashion envy whenever I go out. My clothes, once colorful and funky, have become too basic and devoid of any flair. I needed to be stylized and I needed it on the double.

I walked back into the room about three or four times before summoning up the courage to approach Kathryn Moore, President and CEO of STYLE 2020, with my idea of going to one of my favorite local boutiques, Pitkin County Dry Goods, and getting their personalized service. Kathryn was all for it and so I met Michelle and Zeena. Could they bust me out of my cocoon and transform me into a beautiful butterfly? Watch the video below and find out.

Moore believes this type of service shouldn’t be for celebrities alone and desires to bring it to real people.”

Below is the video. I know, I know, I still need help in the hair and makeup department. Anybody?

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
