Busbee’s Fashion Friday: Fall Trends

Busbee’s Fashion Friday: Fall Trends

What goes around comes around, including fashion trends –and, in the special case, a favorite fashion column.

Years ago, Telluride Inside… and Out published its own, popular, fashion-centric blog, Fashion Friday. But its author, Kristin Holbrook, co-owner of Two Skirts, soon became too busy buying for and running the popular shop on Telluride’s Main Street – plus being a wife, mom and local philanthropist – to continue to identify weekly trends, hot items, and classics, so Fashion Friday got put in a box on our shelf.

Now, however– drum roll please – there is a new kid in town, namely Erin Busbee, a fashion maven of national renown who just moved to Telluride with her family. And, lucky for us, Erin has agreed to allow Telluride Inside..  and Out to curate her hip, happening narratives and videos and, in effect, bring back Fashion Friday – with Kristin and Two Skirts sponsoring the column.

The focus of the first installment of Busbee’s Fashion Friday is fall trends. Watch the video below for  the down low on what’s happening now: reds, browns, deconstruction, winter florals, faux fur & shearling, embroidery, midi skirts and dresses, denim on denim, plaids on checks, and velvet.

According to Erin, “There is nothing wrong with sticking to the classics. But, it’s also fun to mix things up… by wearing new, trendy pieces!”

Scroll down for this week’s video and for more on Erin Busbee and on the column’s sponsor, Two Skirts.

More about Two Skirts:

Kristin Holbrook & Joanne Brown, co-owners, Two Skirts.

Two Skirts is a high-end women’s boutique with two locations: Telluride, Colorado and San Francisco, California. The store carries apparel, accessories, make-up, shoes, and jewelry.

It is fair to say that the history of Two Skirts began down the road a piece: Kristin followed the man who became her husband, (Kevin), who followed his ski school client, Joanne Brown, from Vail to Telluride.

“Kevin decided Telluride was going to be the next great place, so he moved to town in 1998. I followed in 1999 with a desire to open a business for two reasons: 1) I wanted to have something of my own to keep me in this remote town since I knew my husband would never leave; and 2), the timing seemed right to become an entrepreneur in Telluride,” explained Kristin.

Kristin approached Joanne about partnering in a women’s boutique.

The concept for Two Skirts was born in 2000.
