This Weekend: Meet some of the Finest

Be a part of something this weekend.

I frequently get comments from out-of-towners about how close-knit and supportive the Dallas, TX independent apparel brands are with one another. People from around the U.S. have asked me how we make “that” happen – “that” being the positive, family-like approach we have within our creative indie scene. When I started, well-established brands like Fur Face Boy and Unkommon Kolor never shooed me away. Through cultivating organic relationships with some of the smartest mentors in my city, from the beginning I was able to strongly root my brand in a non-competitive manner. This weekend, I’ll continue to enrich my brand and I’ll be doing it alongside some of those very mentors, as well as with some new upstarts.

Thanks to Centre – a boutique in Dallas that opens the doors for makers, dreamers, and believers – The Locals event will have its 2nd run on Saturday, June 23rd from 12pm-8pm.

Last year, The Locals had its introductory run and the turn-out was great. I had released the Spring+Summer Series there and the support from the community gave the line a great jump start on the season. This time around, I’ll have a few SUPER limited items as well as some tiny Goodies for you to stick in your pocket, on your shirt, or wherever suites you best.

I’ll also have only a couple of THE Locals t-shirts left (the collaborative exclusive with Kill Hubris), so if you wanted one and never had the opportunity to snag one, now is your chance!

Get there early, as all my items are limited edition and I do NOT re-run my styles. Chat me up and see what I’ve got planned next… See you out there!

Spreading Talent

This year has been a little different for The Good Child. Year One was all about building a foundation – thanks to you guys and, in return, my own determination. Year Two seems to be more about growing the brand as a full creative force. There was the KH Art House design, the contributing to Hide Your Arms blog, and then there was this:

When Sarah Jaffe came to me looking for a t-shirt for her new and most recognized album, The Body Wins, I was more than flattered. Not yet knowing exactly what the album title meant to Jaffe, I was instantly drawn to my collection of vintage family photographs. Add to it that Jaffe was a Good Child customer and loved the Respect Your Elders tee,  and right away we knew the direction for the design. Say hello to Puerto Rico 1972.

Jaffe picked the shirt body for the design and I love the overall vintage feeling behind the finished product. The album title really seems to work with the vibe in this image and it’s great that it was released during the warmer weather. Continue reading

Random Weekend Happenings

I had such a busy weekend that I have decided to share bits and pieces with you. From Dallas to Denton and back, I carried my beautiful SLR camera, but ended up shooting everything from my iPhone! Check out some of my adventures below…

FRIDAY 2/18: @35Denton on Twitter asks their followers, “Where’s everyone going tonight?” I answered, “My backyard with my grill and some Fireman’s #4.” (I also picked up a FEW of the mega exclusive The Good Child x We Are 1976 tees for the online shop).
