Black & White and ‘Red’ All Over

Last Friday night, one of the best parties of the year happened for the 14th consecutive year. Usually at Boogie’s Merry Go Round Ranch, now the event takes place at the beautiful St. Regis Resort and Hotel in downtown Aspen. Lenny ‘Boogie’ Weinglass, a major contributor to the Buddy Program for over 30 years, was honored along with founding father Gregg Anderson. Fendi was the corporate sponsor and provided some gorgeous auction items and packages. Read the background story from last week’s Time Out and this week’s wrap-up story accompanied by some of the fabulous fashions, some black and white, with splashes of red or orange here and there. The last few photos are from the pre-event party at the Fendi store, giving partygoers a look at the designer’s new collections for Fall.  So happy that my dashing fiance could accompany me to this memorable summer soiree all the way from Melbourne, Australia. Hopefully, there’ll be many more, my darling….xo
