Street Fashion: Sandra Zwingelberg

Some people just stand out. Whether their style is cutting-edge, quirky or just well-executed, they make you want to know: How do they do it? Because we work for you, we're finding out. Each day, we'll hit the streets and talk to one person who catches our eye and makes us look twice. We caught up with Sandra Zwingelberg on Saturday at the Denver Modernism Show, where she was manning her Yesterday's Child booth all weekend.

Sandra got her reputation for having an eye for antiques, lamps, retro clothing and the best tchotchkes ever at her former hole-in-the-wall shop on South Pearl Street; nowadays, she's a little harder to find. Sandra wore a blue, purple and teal print ensemble accented with silvery sandals and a ton of matching jewelry in iridescent tones; find out what she had to say about it after the jump.
