First, a disclaimer. Style Matters loves jewelry, any kind. I will stop to peruse Target’s jewelry department. I think the new JC Penney jewelry cases at Park Meadows are worth inspecting. The first place I go to when visiting a new city is its museum jewelry display.

Contributing Contributor

This year’s Democratic delegates are ideally positioned to fit in some power shopping when done with their party’s business. Style Matters is not encouraging skipping any caucuses or votes.

Denver’s best downtown shopping area is Larimer Square, which is actually not a square in the traditional sense, but one city block bursting with boutiques and restaurants housed in Victorian brownstones. Take advantage of Larimer’s proximity to the convention center. It’s just a free bus ride away on the 16th Street Mall.

‘Tis the travelin’ time of year, Stylish Reader, and odds are you or a close personal friend or family member will be spending extra unexpected time at an airport. You better not pout. This is a shopping and eating opportunity not to be missed. DIA is brimming with new restaurants and boutiques. Sure, Style Matters has heard reports that airport prices might be a bit higher to take advantage of captive shoppers, but that’s offset by the originality of the merchandise and the improving quality of new restaurants.

Designer running shoes — A pair for everyone

The Colorado Statesman

I am in love. The second Google introduced us, I was smitten. I’ve heard talk of rekindling old romances via the Internet, but I never thought it would happen to me. Don’t give me any lip or any tongue or behave like a heel. I’m talking about crushing on the most adorable, colorful and comfy pair of sneakers ever designed by a ... well ... a designer.
