It’s nice when the all-powerful Vogue and I have a meeting of the minds. Makes me feel like I’m not off my rocker by too much. Recently, I did a post on Retro Glamour and featured this hot little red dress by BB Dakota via online retailer Modcloth.com. Turns out it landed on Vogue’s 100 Under $100 list featured on Vogue.com site this week. There’s much to covet in this Vogue list, all for under $100, featuring trend items in tweed/plaids, retro, rocker girl, global traveler, country weekend, clean chic (minimalism) and the twenties. Some of the items make great gift ideas and hostess gifts too.
Another fantastic item I came across this week is from the Wall Street Journal of all places. They have a weekend section called Off Duty and some genius created a heritage-hipster matrix that was seriously great. Guys, you can break out your Sorrels and L.L. Bean jackets with some confidence that you’ll be right in style. Click the image for a blown-up version. Sorry I couldn’t make it bigger on the blog. It’s worth the click-through.
Local Scene: Denver
Last night we had the pleasure of dining at Venue Bistro in the heart of the Highlands neighborhood of Denver. This restaurant is a true local gem that has garnered well-deserved attention and awards from the local media. They debuted their new autumn menu last night and we gobbled down squash soup, shrimp and grits, braised short-ribs and pan-seared chicken. If you go, you absolutely must save room for the White Carrot cake and Squash Custard. Not your typical ingredients for dessert, but they were both heaven on a plate and we scraped the dishes clean. Venue Bistro also won the 2010 Dinners Choice Award by OpenTable.com. Well deserved in my opinion.
