A lot of women need to be kicked out of their houses this time of year, like mama bears from their dens, and forced to put on makeup, buy new outfits and rejoin the real world. The only difference is that unlike the bears, who've been hibernating and emerge skinny and ravenous, human women come out, well, ten pounds overweight and, er, ravenous anyway. How does that work? Face it: You need help and possibly a makeover and you can find both at Belmar's Elements of Style event, replete with pampering stations, style sessions, clothing and jewelry vendors, take-home swag and healthful mock-tinis. Beautification takes place today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Belmar Plaza, Alaska Drive and Teller Place in Lakewood.
Admission is free, but participants are asked to bring a handbag or other accessory donation for Dress for Success; go to www.belmarcolorado.com or call 303-742-1520.
