Brides-to-be have coveted the gorgeous gowns at LoHi’s Anna Be since the shop’s opening in 2006. Now, the rest of us can get a taste for the fabulous boutique with the unveiling of Ground Floor, the aptly named dress shop going in on the first floor of the Anna Be space. Filled to the brim with flirty frocks, Ground Floor will mimic Anna Be’s signature sophisticated style. Dresses ideal for wedding guests, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners or just a night on the town will appoint the chic space. Look for niche designers that are hard to find in the Mile High, like Erin Fetherston and Eva Franco. Prices range from $180 – $500, and the shop is open Tuesday through Saturday. Ground Floor by Anna Be, 1575 Boulder Street in Denver, Ring 720.855.1111, www.anna-be.com.
