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?

It's amazing the treasures one finds when one slows down to take an old pup out for daily slow walks. Having been up in Aspen for 5 years, I forgot about this old Fairview Cemetery that Loki guided me to where I discovered Merino Fiou: Merino Bruno Fiou, AKA “Mr. Basalt”, born July 29, 1940 in Glenwood Springs and died March 6, 2011 at Valley View Hospital.This from the Aspen Times: A constant staple of the Town of Basalt, Merino was always on the search for a treasure that few of us cherished. He had a love of hats and was always seen wearing a different one. He walked many miles each day back and forth into town.Many local merchants of different stores knew him by name. Merino was very proud of his money jar that he accumulated by turning in his aluminum cans that he collected. Merino had many jobs throughout the years including trash pickup and working at Two Rivers Cafe washing dishes. He liked to help out wherever needed, even volunteering when they built the playground. Merino was very fond of River Days and loved to listen to the music in town. With a constant smile on his face, he was very friendly and never knew a stranger. Merino loved the annual yard sale at his house, looked forward to sifting through all the stuff, he found a treasure in things that other people threw out.Did anyone know Merino?#iseenya#mrbasalt#coolcemeteries ...
