Skip the chaos of retail on Colorado Boulevard (you know, the hordes descending on H&M and Forever 21).
A little off the beaten path, but not too far, and directly across from the De Lacey parking garage is Il Teatro, which is not a shop for opera glasses, but rather an exquisite women’s clothing and accessories boutique.
Stock up on wardrobe staples or add some sparkle a la bohme to your special occasion.
You’ll do it all without busting through the budget you’d normally keep at those other warehouse-esque stores.
