wish you were here…

… Aspen – possibly one of the most glamorous cities in the world, I had only visited during the winter months to hit the slopes. Now we are on our way for a little summer vaca and we can see what this town really has to offer.

Possibly the easiest flight ever from LAX (minus the gut wrenching turbulent landing), I arrived in this quaint little mountain town and was ready to experience summer – Aspen style. As my past memories involved Boogies Diner and the Ultimate taxi – this time around, I wanted to check out every little shop and put together a perfect list of the absolute must stop shops while in town.

we have arrived

almost looks like a painting

the town...love the cobblestone

So after dropping off my bags and having a quick chat with the two cute local girls at the concierge desk – I left the Hotel Jerome on foot to check out what kind of damage I could do. After much editing…here is where it’s at…

MAX …hands down my favorite fashion boutique in Aspen. If you are looking for all of our favorites – Rick Owens, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Missoni, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, Ann Demeulemeester, Celine, Isabel Marant, Lanvin, Dries, Helmut Lang – well you’re in the right place. As I arrived, I met the infamous and fabulous Max, who was more delightful than I imagined. Fall pieces had just started arriving and that was a problem.

welcome to aspen's finest

self control did not join me on this trip

After a whirlwind of dresses, jackets, and a peruse through the beautiful jewelry, I had to bid Max adieu and head to my next store…but not before he asked where I was from, what I was doing in town, where I would be eating dinner (Cache Cache which was amaze) and that he would see me there. Did I mention how friendly everyone is here? Love him – love this town.

More to come!
