Layering Guide: Short Winter Days

Layering Outdoor Sunday Essentials

Though it has not quite happened yet, soon all the leaves will have fallen off the trees and cleared off of our yards. For the majority of the winter Denver is not covered in snow, but rather the greyed out muted ground colors of cold weather along with the bold colors of the obnoxiously early yet remarkably beautiful mid afternoon sunsets.

Layering Guide: Warm + Dry Edition

Layering Sunday Essentials

In smaller settings, a curator is one who takes sole responsibility to acquire a collection and to create a system in which the exhibit is experienced. Clothing is art. The amazing attribute of clothing comes with the ability to wear art and layering becomes the way in which that art can be interpreted. It can be a challenge to curate pieces from vastly different locations and cultures, intentions and executions. When timeless esthetics and quality driven pieces are sought out it can mean fewer pieces in the wardrobe.  Layering helps to mix it up and provide variety when single items...
