Here's my list of "must-see" places:

Kismet is a growing "hot-spot" and Denver destination. The "the easy wear, no fuss" clothing boutique opened seven years ago and has expanded to the streets of Southglen and the Lowry Town Center. The shop carries an array of brands, including my favorite Johnny Was, which are comfortable yet fashionable. Located inside Kismet is what they call a "Pop-Up-Shop." Each season, Kismet offers a wide selection of the season's most popular clothing item. This summer, the Pop-Up-Shop carried a wide variety of dresses, but with fall right around the corner, the Pop-Up-Shop is now featuring tops from August 10th - August 31st.
Heifer International, a global non profit dedicated to ending poverty and hunger in a sustainable fashion. At the end of the month, all three Kismet stores pull their earnings together and match whatever amount of money is made.

Right next door to Kismet is the Wordshop Paperie, a local paper shop featuring eco friendly goods. They feature custom invitations, announcements, and unique Denver oriented graphic design prints. As an avid writer and sucker for fine paper and stationary, I appreciate their goal to revive the written word.
3. The Perfect Petal
3600 West 32nd Avenue,
Ste B, Denver, CO. 80211-3193
My next stop is The Perfect Petal, a flower shop and boutique that features a little of everything, books, perfumes, accessories, home decor, and more. They even carry my newest obsession, Library of Flowers, an American Perfumery. Their products feature garden inspired scents like true vanilla, willow and water, and my favorite, forget me not.
Denver, CO. 80211
Last but not least, I'd recommend popping into Dragonfly, an independent women's clothing and accessory boutique that caries designer denim and contemporary brands like BB Dakota, J Brand Jeans, Splendid, and more. The trendy store is attached to Strut, a shoe store that carries Swedish Hasbeens (I've been wanting a pair of their clogs).
