We had the good fortune of connecting with Bee Lacole and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Bee, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
I have always been in tuned with fashion and style almost as if its uniquely a part of my DNA. It was lost on me how much some women struggle with fashion and their style. I never knew how much of a stressor it was for women until I was being begged to start styling professionally. So I came up with an idea to begin a STYLE BOUTIQUE where women can either book me for personal styling, view my portfolio or self shop my site and feel confident in the choices they were selecting.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am where I am today because of the passion that I have for my craft and for helping women show up as their best selves daily. I think my passion not only drives the visual output of what I do but it drives the behind the scenes input that’s the heartbeat of the business. The art is fun the business is the meat and the potatoes and you need both to survive and thrive.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am going to drag them to workout with me at Grit Fitness because those are my people and the place I feel the most connected and understood since moving to Dallas. The women and the community is unmatched. I’m a foodie and vibes person so we will have to visit Roots Southern Table because it reminds me most of home, STIRR because thats where I get my favorite drink A Girl From Dallas, Monarch for the views, Kai for the vibes, Nick & Sam’s for the grown and sexy. My friends and family always want to go to Top Golf when they visit. lol We don’t have it in MS so I am always finding my way there when they visit. Then places like Deep Ellum is always a go to place just because its so special and not cookie cutter.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Women but particular black women. I am a black woman and my whole being was nurtured and developed by all of the many women but especially black women that came in my life. The way I walk, talk, present myself, wear my hair, the rhythm that I feel within me and the confidence that allows me to face the world has all been ignited by those women.
