Come Visit Aspen, We Don’t Bite!

I have been asked many questions about Aspen; "What should I wear there?", "How will we eat if it is so expensive?", "Why would I want to visit Aspen?" and my answers to all of these questions are, "Just come as you are and you will see that Aspen is a ski town first and foremost where the fashion is predominantly jeans and workout clothes. Sure an occasional diamond ring can be a bit distracting, and stunning BTW, and the fur comes out in the wintertime, mostly when it's freezing but is that any reason to not visit? I should say not!"

Why Would I Visit Aspen?

I’ve heard it before, perhaps not directly but in subtle innuendos that always lay thick upon me. I feel sorry for people who are so debilitated by their preconceived notions.. “Ohhh, I would never visit Aspen,” they say. “I prefer to go somewhere more real and less glitzy,” hence Aspen Real Life was born to placate those fears and educate people that Aspen is indeed an incredible place to visit and that what makes it so incredible, other than the obvious, is the people who live in this valley.

I’ve been meaning to talk about this for a while but after hanging out with Othello during Aspen Fashion Week and doing a spontaneous video of him, I decided that I would let him be my spokesperson, for that is his specialty, other than skateboarding and modeling.

So here is the video. Enjoy!
