Street Style: "If you feel like a witch, then you should dress like a witch"
On Saturday, when a collision of cultural celebrations -- the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo -- had people sporting big hats and sombreros all over town, one person's style statement definitely topped all others.
Every witch way.
Here's a look at this week's Denver street style.

Favorite accessory: Bangles. I lived in India for a year and they make them small enough there to fit my wrist.

Style mantra: Sometimes people forget to get dressed before you start drinking, so dressing sober is key. Although there are plenty of blacks and grays in my wardrobe, as an attorney, I feel I should be allowed to have fun with style.
Style analysis: Denver has a wide and diverse aesthetics spectrum. Some people go for shock and awe, while others play it more subtle and conservative. Whether you're suiting up for a day at the office or preparing to cast a spell on the town, remember to dress before drinking. And to rock those black boots.
