Boulder Lifestyle – Oh, the Places You’ll Go
“When my mother flew for Pan-Am in the late 60s, people dressed for travel, and while mass transportation seems to have lost any semblance of the excitement and glamour it once embodied, we don’t have to allow our own style to follow this fate….”

“Liz Finkelstein admits that inside a two-bedroom Boulder townhouse, she may have gone overboard with green accents: throw pillows, fabrics, wall hangings. “But when it’s essentially a hotel…you get to do more unusual things,” says the stylist and owner of Mile High Style, a boutique style-consulting business in Boulder…”
“In 2009, shortly after moving to Boulder, I decided to make my passion into my profession. Back then, most people who helped others in this way called themselves “image consultants.” I wanted to take a different approach and instead of focusing just on how individuals looked, I wanted to weave that style through every aspect of their life including their home, their office and anywhere else they spent time. Fortunately for me, that’s what my clients wanted too and my business took off…”

“Heather Dwight knows how to make a stunning first impression. The owner of Calluna Events, a wedding and event planning business, Dwight hired interior designer Liz Finkelstein of Mile High Style to create the office-space equivalent of those take-your-breath-away moments. The neutral palette appeals to men and women, while the furnishings and art reflect Dwight’s easy, elegant style…”

“Transformed: A Journey in Style & Scouting – Liz Finkelstein of MILE HIGH STYLE has been working her magic on Colorado women, men and their homes since 2008. As a personal shopper and style consultant, Boulder-based Liz offers a slew of services that range from wardrobe repurposing and vacation styling to home staging, working with clients across Colorado.”
“On this installment of Style Profiles, we catch up with Liz Finkelstein, a Boulder-based style consultant. For our chat, we meet at Brasserie 1010, a Pearl Street restaurant popular with hip professionals keen for a little nosh and socializing after work. I’m waiting for an open space at the bar when Liz strides in, Amazon-tall in her Givenchy wedges and with such a commanding presence that she’s impossible to miss…”
“When I got here,” the owner of Mile High Style said in her office near Pearl Street, “I could tell there was a need for it. So I thought, why not?” The brunette with a slicked-back bun and an empire skirt sat amidst stacks of oversized fashion books, listing off all the necessities every man and woman should have in their closet. She said the reason many Boulderites don’t dress up isn’t because they don’t have anything to wear, but because they feel they don’t have anywhere to wear it to.”

“This office, and all the spaces I design, is what I consider ‘The New Boulder.’ By embracing the values of our community – like supporting local businesses and artists and keeping an eye on the environment with our choices, without being limited by them – we have the best of both worlds.”
“I don’t make any hard and fast rules about anything because style is all about flexibility and creativity and thinking outside of the box, but it’s probably safe to assume the square-toed shoes of the 90s won’t be making a comeback,” Finkelstein said.
Florescents are big this summer…but not the head-to-toe neon of the ‘80s. “With anything trendy, the key is to incorporate it in moderation,” said Liz Finkelstein, owner of and fashion consultant at Mile High Style. To incorporate florescent into the wardrobe of a fashion novice, Finkelstein says stick with accessories—a coral scarf, a necklace like the one we used (also available in coral), a ballet flat, a skinny belt…

College hotties strutting through their Ivy League campuses. Niki Taylor in plaid. Quizzes about your summer fling. In high school, the only thing you loved more than summer was the fat back-to-school issue of Seventeen. These days, updating your style is more daunting, and a new Trapper Keeper won’t cut it. Which is where style consultant Liz Finkelstein and her company Mile High Style step in.

Make ’40s style wearable today by taking part of it, such as red lips or signature hairstyles, and pairing it with something modern, like beat-up jeans. Try a vintage bag with a trendy cocktail dress. A period coat is a great statement piece and pops against a contemporary background. Keep in mind: moderation. If you wear too many signature pieces, you just look like you’re wearing a costume.
I personally love recycling clothing both into and out of my wardrobe. Liz Finkelstein, a consultant for Mile High Style, believes a conscious consumer must think about “closet repurposing.” She helps clients incorporate everything from the “merely workable” to the “absolutely fabulous” into their wardrobes, setting aside the nonworkable items for consignment accounts and donation. Jessica Helson agrees: “Giving clothing a longer life is, at its core, environmentalism at work!”
