Denim Rules 


Young or old, nearly everyone has a pair of jeans. Denim is comfortable and inherently hip, and you can effortlessly pair it with nearly anything in your closet. What does this have to do with 85086? Well, as it turns out, there’s a wonderful boutique in town that carries the latest jeans and styles from the hottest brands around. With this in mind, our team headed to Swankys to check it out and found it to be the perfect spot to shoot our fall-fashion spread. We love supporting local businesses and we know you like to look good, so check out our cover story for examples on how to rock your wardrobe this season with versatile pieces of denim to mix, match, and layer for stylishly smooth transitions. The best part––you can find all these looks right around the corner!

Speaking of right around the corner, we also step inside the home of a local couple who’ve incorporated a touch of France into their Anthem abode. Then, we head to the kitchen of our new food columnist, Lydia O’Connor, aka The Desert Baroness. Lydia’s a Desert Hills resident who shares all the yummy details for a delicious night of Halloween revelry. Yes, believe it or not, Halloween will be here before you know it, which has us excited for the arrival of cooler weather.


Now that we’re talking about weather, Shelley Sakala is a meteorologist and a former weather anchor/reporter at ABC15 who still enjoys talking about the weather, which she does really well. Check out her article this month to find out when you can break out the winter shorts, or rather, the leather jacket you see on the cover. That jacket has one of our team members wishing temps would dip below 80 degrees so that she can whip it out already. Until then, sit back and enjoy this issue filled with what your neighbors are up to.
