Pretty Young Things

December 2000

Stop being practical – go out and buy your pretty little self something that’s provocative and peppy. Shove last year’s conservative staple to the back of the coat closet and slide into a new leather or bundle up in a fur – in Denver, even faux will do. Tonight prepare to take on the town. Denver hot spots such as Sambuca Jazz Cafe paint the perfect backdrop for your fabulous fashions. So, grab your coat, pull on a pair of slick boots, and get ready to kick up your heels. And don’t underestimate the power of the pout.
