It was so good to see the fabled Buddy Bash return to its roots at Boogie Weinglass’ beautiful mountain-top Merry-Go-Round ranch. Boogie was one of the founding members of the Buddy Program in 1973, and has been hosting the summer event since 2000. The party had some location changes in the past few years, so it was a happy re-union to see the white billowing tents dotting his property on McLain Flats once again for an evening of celebration for the Buddy Program.

There were two amazing events on the same day in July – not a big surprise during our Aspen summers, but ones I was fortunate to attend, not only for the great fashion and style, but for the wonderful causes they benefitted. Besides the Buddy Bash (article published in last week’s Aspen Daily News), I attended an elegant afternoon event at the gondola, raising money for the Shining Stars Foundation which assists children fighting cancer. Make sure to put the date in your calendar for next summer when you hear about it. http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/entertainment/167584
Last weekend was the official kick-off of summer in Aspen with the annual Food & Wine three day orgy of gastronomy and oenophilia. Love of fashion was also in evidence as the ladies and gentlemen pulled out their pretty colors and styles that we in Aspen can only don for a few precious warm weeks. Let’s dress up! http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/entertainment/167246

It’s been a joy for the last nine years to go to events where Mary Eshbaugh Hayes, esteemed social columnist for our competitor, The Aspen Times, was covering them too. I don’t think she ever knew how honored I was to be in the same room as her, shooting the same guests at some of the most coveted events that Aspen hosts every year. Now that we’ve lost her, I needed to share how influential she was in my life and career. See my article in the weekend Time Out section of the The Aspen Daily News. http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/entertainment/166248
I may have attended my last press conference for the Winter X Games last month when it took place for the 13th consecutive year in Aspen. I’ve been attending this sporting ritual for the majority of these years, always excited about talking withthe athlets about their clothing sponsors and, of course, what they’d be wearing for their soaring and catapulting flights down the manicured courses. That’s what a fashion writer does. http://www.aspendailynews.com/section/entertainment/165720
