I’m back in Colorado, and last night I got to go to Fashion’s Night Out in Boulder because my best friend, Karleen, was modeling in the show! Fashion’s Night Out is an annual event with fashion shows and parties in cities all over the world. The show in Boulder highlighted fashions available at local shops on and around Pearl Street. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to whip out my camera and take a few pictures.
And here is Karleen (on the far right) rocking her dress from Silhouette:
After the show, I went back to the Silhouette store with Karleen to have a little champagne and to check out the clothes. I ended up really liking the store because they don’t just sell pretty clothes, they sell pretty clothes that are eco-friendly and that come from designers with socially responsible business practices. What does that mean? It means they carry lines like EcoSkin, which makes organic dresses, and Ingenious Design, which manufactures fare-wage apparel in Peru. I loved it because I know all about organic food but I had never really thought about how clothes can be organic as well. (Oh, and I’m not being paid by Silhouette. I just think they’re a cool company.) If you want to check them out, you can go to their facebook page or follow them on twitter.
I hope you’re having a fabulous (and fashionable) Friday!
