Fashion from the runway to the stores, what a great concept!

The high-end stores (Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom) have the fashions available soon after they appear on the runway, but there are a few affordable stores that have them fairly quickly as well. Target, the Gap, and Anthropologie seem to be the quickest to get them on the shelves.

1st “must have” Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren Jeans are jeans with patches. Of course, none compare to the Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren jeans ($398) that I think I saw in Glamour magazine. They are beautiful! I tried to locate something similar, but couldn’t find anything like them! I even searched on-line and in local stores, but no luck. So I decided to copy the concept and make them myself. I use the word “make” very loosely. Attached is a picture of the Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren jeans so you can see what I have been searching for.

2nd “must have” are jeans that have a metallic look. I bought a pair last Fall at Guess. I really like how they fit so I wore them quite often. This season (2014), I found a comparable pair at Target (right now, August 21, 2014, you can purchase the second pair for 50% off, which brought them down to around $22.00). The jeans are actually jean leggings. They look and fit great. They are part of the Mossimo collection and they come in three colors, which are black, navy, and burgundy. I bought the burgundy color (one of my most favorite colors). Now all I have to do is wait for the cooler weather. It will be here before I know it!

Il Posto

When I hear the words “Italian Food”, I immediately think of Il Posto at 2011 E 17th Ave, Denver (17th and Race).  It is hard to find amazing Italian food.  I lived in Italy while I was a teenager and have traveled back several times to visit friends.  I use to think that there were no Denver restaurants that serve authentic Italian food, that was until I ate at Il Posto.  If you want a restaurant where you are greeted by the Owner, Andrea, and are treated like you are his only guest, then this is the place to have lunch (Monday – Friday) or dinner.  The menu changes daily so I won’t even tell you what to order until it comes to dessert.  I love his dessert called Bombolini!  It looks like small round donuts. Yum!  I can not describe them other then they alone, are worth the trip!  If you have an opportunity to visit the restaurant, let me know what you think of Andrea’s food.  I would strongly recommend using Opentables.com in order to get a table without waiting on a Friday or Saturday night.
