Kaitlin - a&bé denver store manager


What's on your playlist right now?

I'm a country girl at heart, so I usually have a little Zac Brown or Garth Brooks on my playlist, but I have an old soul, so I am often caught jamming out to Stevie Nicks, James Taylor or CCR.

Who is your favorite a&bé designer? 

That's not a fair question because I have a special place in my heart for all of our designers! I love that we work with small independent artists who we are able to create personal relationships with. Each dress is a work of art, and having a connection with the creative mind behind the gown and feeling the love that goes into each piece makes it all the more special!

If you could wear any gown from a&bé, which one would it be? 

Also, a completely unfair question.  I usually have a new obsession on a regular basis, but currently, my heart belongs to Rish's 'Kaitlin' gown. I'm insanely flattered by having a namesake dress in the shop (that is exclusive to a&be!), but the credit really goes to all of our Denver #aandbabes who inspired this totally unique and unbelievably gorgeous boho creation.

Childhood nickname?

Katiebug (thanks Grandpa - I'll never outlive that one!)

Any pets? 

I'm trying to resist the urge everyday to adopt a puppy, but I think right now my dog-fever is best filled by babysitting my brother's adorable rescue pooch, Kona.

Any super secret talents? 

It's really not a secret, but my inner cheerleader comes out every once in a while when I get really excited about something, which happens a lot around here. I try to keep the jazz hands to a minimum, though.

Where you will find me when I'm not at a&bé? 

When I'm not at a&be I love to head to Boulder and find new hiking trails. I'm also a new homeowner, so my weekends currently consist of a lot of yard work and figuring out how to do home repairs without actually making the problems worse. (thank goodness for youtube!)

What is your favorite thing or place in Denver?

My favorite part about Denver are all of the fantastic local restaurants and breweries. A couple of my current favorite hot-spots are Work & Class and Williams & Graham (maybe I have a subconscious draw to ampersands?).  Also, as a Colorado native, I am a die hard Broncos, Rockies and Buffs fan.

Why You Will Love Working With Me?

The most rewarding part of my job is being able to be a part of the moment when you find the dress. I love hearing your story and helping you find the perfect dress for your style, body type and personality. There is something very magical that happens when you put on the dress that you will marry your best friend in and I am honored to be a part of such a special time in your life!
