BRIEF: It's time for Boulder fashionistas to strut their stuff

Aug. 31--Several newer shops on the west end of Pearl (Fjallraven, Goorin Bros. Hat Shop, Earthbound Trading Co. and the longer-standing Shoe Fly) are organizing a block party "sidewalk jam," with live music, sweets and giveaways.

"One of the best comments we hear after this event ... is they discover shops they've walked by 100 times," Takata-Smith says.

Anna Salim, event director, recommends branching off the main drag to explore some of the shops on side streets, such as the new Explicit Streetwear on 13th Street, Nod and Rose on Spruce and the nearby Zeal Optics sunglasses shop.

"Sometimes people don't get on those side streets," Salim says. "They always throw a good party also."
