Behind The Scenes: Keep, Toss or Swap Workshop

KeepTossSwap It's been a crazy few months filled with adventure, b-school, collaborations and work at the BG Studio. Sadly the blog took a backseat while I have been focusing on managing the studio, school, travel and family time. Luckily, thanks to some time management improvements, I'm back in the saddle again and introducing a new column on the blog featuring behind the scenes moments from the Bourbon and Goose Studio. Kicking off the series with one of my favorite events from the last month—a collaboration with my stylish friend, Adri from Adri Lately. We've come together to introduce a fun workshop called Keep, Toss or Swap. It features Adri's personal styling services and portraiture from moi. Oh, plus it included  a special #happyhourclub with a full mimosa bar.

The best part about this event was getting to see Adri's skills in action and working with the ladies who attended. I have to admit I also picked up a few style tips during the process. Well, luckily for you, Adri's got an amazing blog filled with tips and tricks. Also, if you are interested in the next Keep, Toss or Swap workshop, be sure to sign up for the newsletter here and as we'll be announcing the date soon.
