Kasia Iwaniczko MacLeod


The name Kasia needs no further introduction, but the well-known pillar on the philanthropy block recently become Kasia Iwaniczko MacLeod. Denver’s newest MRS., Kasia’s gorgeous high-country nuptials were as chic and sophisticated as the woman behind them. A friend to charities galore and the brainchild behind the newly-launched 5280 Consulting Group, Kasia has a heart that’s as big as her jewelry collection. Here, she shares a few of her favorites…

Reign Maker: Kasia Iwaniczko MacLeod

  1. Hampton Sun SPF 35 Continuous Mist Sunscreen. This is a pure luxury whether you’re in the NY Hamptons or the “Colorado Hamptons.” The smell alone reminds me of vacation.
  2. Bold jewelry. I love chunky, unique jewelry pieces. Whether it’s a gorgeous turquoise piece from Little Star Gallery in Golden or a fabulous Stella & Dot pearl necklace or cuff. A big, interesting piece really makes any simple outfit.
  3. Bubbles. I simply can’t get enough of my new favorite, Secco. Owned by two fabulous Italian sisters and good friends, Olivia and Ginevra Casa. Secco is a yummy Sparkling Italian White Wine.
  4. The Capital Grille. I like to pretend it’s my Cheers. As a native, I’ve seen trendy spots come and go – but this joint has the service, food and cocktails down to a instrumented science. Whether I’m in the mood for a “Moo” (this would be the insider’s extra tall cocktail) or a dirty martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives, this is the place!
  5. Rolex 18K white gold Oyster Midsize. This has become such a special part of my everyday wear. My sweet husband, David gave this to me the morning of our wedding with an engraving of our initials and wedding date. I cherish it!
  6. Share in the Care Colorado. The Campaign to Restore Colorado’s Capitol Dome. I’ve been lucky to work with some amazing non-profits over the last decade and this is no different. Just recently, Colorado Preservation, Inc. has asked me and my firm, 5280 Consulting Group, Inc. on as the Campaign Strategy Director for this terrific cause marketing initiative. The State Capitol is a special and historical spot and it’s an honor to help preserve it for our future generations.
  7. 5280 Consulting Group, Inc. This year was a great opportunity to have the support to kick-off my new firm. We cultivate effective community relationships and unique marketing strategies toward a decade of marketing, brand placement, product rollouts in the corporate world, as well as fundraising in the political and non-profit worlds.
  8. The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch. Oy! I love this place. It was the place David and I got engaged and it’s the place we got married in May. My husband was sentimental enough to suggest we get married at the same place he proposed. You didn’t hear me argue one bit! We have been so lucky to truly enjoy just about everything about this magical mountain location.
