Mile High fashion, beauty, family & trends. Sweet!
Things have really changed in the past few years. Money is tighter than ever. Maybe you’ve left your club-hopping life behind for diapers and soccer games. Those skinny jeans are gathering dust in the back of your closet. And that lipstick you’ve been using since college? Sister, we’ve been there.
But, you know what? Even if we’re keeping a closer look on our spending habits, even if we’re saving for our kid’s tuition instead of that new pair of Pradas, even if we’ve gained — ahem — a few pounds, hell, even if we’re scraping our makeup out of a tube with a Q-Tip, we still deserve an extra dose of style in our lives.
That’s why I started Denver à la mode. I lost my fashion editor job at the Rocky Mountain News earlier this year when the newspaper folded after nearly 150 years of business. People kept asking me what I wanted to do next, what my dream job was. But the truth is, I was doing it. So, why stop?
Denver à la mode is a place to share the latest fashion tips and trends, beauty treatments and bargain shopping advice. We’ll focus on local businesses and what people are wearing where we live. I’m the mother of two little girls, so I also want it to be a source for cool kid finds, stores, styles and entertainment. Oh, and, because we know how much you all love free stuff, we’ll be giving away something stylish each week.
If you looked forward to the Rocky‘s Thursday Spotlight section, I hope you’ll turn to us for the same credible content. I’m working with Joe Mahoney, a photographer and assistant multimedia editor at the Rocky, to deliver the same stunning images and video you came to expect from us. And, if you miss the Style Matters gals, rest assured. You’ll find them here, too.
This site, along with The Sundae Scoop, a free weekly e-letter, is all about the people, products, stores and happenings that make the Mile High City stylish. I hope you come to crave the dishes we’ll be serving and let me know your thoughts, ideas, tips and suggestions. Enjoy!
