Welcome to Dressing Dallas, a lifestyle blog dedicated to all the things that make life a little sweeter! I’m Lauren, the blogger, publisher, and all around Girl Boss behind this space on the internet.
Dressing Dallas is about loving yourself, being creative, and finding inspiration from the world around you. Here you’ll find daily articles on fashion, beauty, photography, home decor projects and how to run your own #girlboss hustle as I share fun tidbits from my life here in Dallas, TX.
I like to think of Dressing Dallas as a place where I share everything that I think makes life a little more fun. According to me, you can’t go through life without the things that make it exciting, and that’s what I like to share here. I’m constantly searching for the next thing to enrich my life, the next thing to learn, and the next thing to help me grow as a person, so why not share that with you!
Why did I start Dressing Dallas you ask? Well, simply put, I wanted to share what I love! And what better way to do so than to start a blog. I am very interested in taking pictures, editing with Photoshop, making Youtube tutorials, and many other aspects of blogging, so I thought it would be perfect! Dressing Dallas was born in 2014, but I’ve been blogging since 2008, and I’ve loved every second of it! There’s something special about networking with bloggers, sharing my life, and getting to work with amazing companies!
Fun fact about me, I am also a makeup artist! I love to share my obsession with beauty, how to apply makeup and how to feel beautiful in your own skin. I love to teach women the proper techniques for applying makeup flawlessly, and how to do it fast, because #momlife #busywoman! If you’d like to learn more about my favorite products and the techniques I use for a flawless face, be sure to check out my Beauty section of this blog as well as join my exclusive Facebook group, Dressing Dallas Beauty.

You will come to find as you begin reading my little corner of the internet, that I’m sassy, quirky, and a little bit weird. I generally feel like an awkward preteen in an adult’s body, but that’s ok! I think it’s cool to be weird and nerdy! So if you’re like me, give out a big Hazaah! Also, I love to laugh, make jokes, and talk in my native language…sarcasm.
