It’s no secret how I feel about this bra. Once you’ve acquired the basics of neutral and black, it’s time to start playing with color, and the color of this Fall is purple. Pop into Christina’s to pre-order this baby, and remember that it runs small (expect to go up one numerical size). If the price tag seems high ($112), consider that this bra is a 3 in 1, adjusting to both racerback and halter styles.

Back by popular demand, I’ve assembled a list of, what I consider to be, Boulder’s best: the first local places I go for home and closet.

Common Threads– For the fashion savvy bargain shopper, this store is a gold mine. The benefit of shopping consignment is not merely the prices; it’s also the diversity of merchandise. Now sporting a fabulous new redesign, this store is better than ever.

Chelsea– Over 10 years running, Chelsea is known for their unrivaled customer service. They are also the spot for all things feminine, easy & breezy. Within the last year, Jessica has expanded her buy to include more moderately priced merchandise so there’s something for everyone.

MAX– Special is the name of the game at MAX. While higher price points can be intimidating to some shoppers, their pieces are forever. Take advantage of the end of the season Sidewalk Sale where prices are reduced up to 60%.

blogposts_bob_3rdandvine

3rd & Vine– New to the Boulder retail scene, this gem has a little bit of everything. From high end upholstery to antique furniture, dog accoutrement to table and barware, patio pieces to bathroom linens, the shop is packed with one-of-a-kinds. Connie (the owner) is an interior designer, dog lover, and one of the loveliest people in the business.

High Street Shoppes– Curators of cool Kim Clary & Natalie Guggenheim turned their estate sale rummagings and eye for design into Boulder’s hottest pop-up market. Join their email list to learn which weekends they are ‘open’ and read more about them here.

Factory Made– Self-described as ‘a collaborative creative lab, design incubator and retail platform’, this store brings the cool in a very big way. In addition to an impressive and ever changing selection of mid-century furniture, they are a showcase for some of Boulder’s best talent, including e bella pillows and Carol Ann Wachter clothing.

I would never keep a good thing all to myself…

Anyone who has ever read a design magazine is familiar with the ubiquitous cowhide rug, and everyone who has shopped for one knows the steep prices they command. For a high quality cowhide, you can expect to spend between $400 and $700… Until now.

Brad Lynch, guy style guru and aesthetic warrior, introduced me to Denver’s best kept secret: Tandy Leather Factory. There’s so much I could say about this store: the location (strip mall and seedy), the walls of cowboy accoutrement (buckles and button studs), but most important is the quality (high) and the price (low) of the hides, low to the tune of $179.99.

You can read more of what I have to say about cowhides here.

As you can probably imagine, I get a lot of catalogues. Some are useful (Pottery Barn Bed & Bath), others have no place in my mailbox (too many to name), and one makes me smile every time: Olive & Cocoa. I always find something lovely for a gift, for my home, or (most typically) a gift for my home.

The most recent issue features one of the hottest items of the Summer entertaining season: mason jars. Petite in size with perforated lids and accessorized with adorable (and equally trendy) striped straws, they’re party perfect.
