Sartorial Adventures in Dallas
There's something about working with GOOD people that makes the work infinitely more fun, more inspired, and more motivating. When Juli (Bauer Roth of PaleOMG) invited me to Dallas, TX last week for a vacation-style getaway in the city, she also mentioned the possibility of a fashion shoot. I was SO IN. I'll happily jump at any excuse to smear on an extra coat of lipstick, tease my hair, and play dress-up with one of my favorite friends.

Fun fashion aside, I think these photos represent 3 different ways I love to spend spend time with a girlfriend. For Juli and myself, that could be out shopping and brainstorming business together (like in look #1); out for a fun and festive night on the town (like in look #2); or out for a Sunday brunch that stretches, through good food and better conversation, into the late ours of the afternoon (like in look #3). Scrolling through these photos, I'm reminded of the profound positive impact a friendship with a strong woman, like Juli, has had on my life. We get to work together, we get to support each other, we get to encourage, empathize, and strengthen. Every time I walk away from a visit with this incredible lady, I'm even more inspired and empowered than before. THAT is the mark of a good, good friendship.
Make time for and surround yourself by those who, without any stretch of the imagination, truly lift you up.
Now, for the looks!
