Can I just say that I love my new city? Every day I realize that yet another fantastic person lives here, and that's one more stylish person I need to get to know. Yesterday I stumbled across Lisa Garza's site and was shocked I'd forgotten that she is a Dallasite. Food + fashion + fun = fabulous.
For the uninitiated, she was a contestant on The Next Food Network Star. A show with low buzz factor overall, but I'm a sucker for culinary contests and sourcing for up and coming talent. When Lisa walked on the scene is her signature pearls, pencil skirt, colorful top and towering heels I knew we were stylish sisters at heart. Let's face it, aside from voluptuous Giada de Laurentiis, food & fashion do not often go hand in hand in the kitchen. Lisa was serving up more than just good dishes. She may not have won the competition, but she certainly brought home many fans. I often think the standout contestants fare better in "real life" than the show winners. In her case this is certainly true, as she's clearly a local celeb and a regular fixture at fetes around the metropolitan area.
As I peruse Lisa's site for her next tasting event I'll encourage you to serve up something stylish today yourself. Festive cupcakes, a custom ottoman for a client or a gorgeous outfit to wear to the office... whatever your passion, dish it up hot and serve it like there's no tomorrow.
