Hello my fashion forward travel addicts! This weekend I had the opportunity to catch up with some of Denver's best and local fashion, travel and food bloggers. This event Diamonds in the daytime was put together by Denver Style Magazine and Capitol Hill Mansion and Molly Brown House.
Our first stop was brunch at Capitol Hill Mansion B&B, and boy was it fantastic! Carl and his staff arranged a lovely brunch for the hungry fashionistas last Saturday morning. Their food was absolutely savory , they featured beautiful Polish and Portuguese dish-ware and silverware ! Carl and his daughter kept the drinks and laughs coming! They also keep their room themed as you can see in some of my pictures. I felt like a princess in their Shooting Star Room. After we fueled up we were off to the Molly Brown house .
Our tour operation at the Molly Brown house was so precious and she told us the many secrets of the fashion forward Ms. Margareta Brown aka Molly Brown. She is better yet know as being one the survivors from The Titanic. Just outside we were in modern Denver, inside we were transported into Ms . Brown's time. Miss Brown kept an array of beautiful original pieces from the Victoria era to early 1920's flapper style. We learned that Molly Brown was ahead of her time not only in fashion, but in other aspects of her life. While it was unusual for women to be outside of their homes without their husbands you would see her without her beau. She was also a well traveled woman and could tell by the collection of pieces she collected from around the world She was heavily involved in charity events , hosted Governors' and Mayors' to her home and was an ambassador for the Women's Suffrage movement.
What a badass lady, I vote Molly Brown for President!
Take a life lesson from Molly Brown and step out of your comfort zone. Be the change you want to see in the world. Who knows when they'll make a museum out of you and pay tribute! #lifegoals
