Also committed to the community, she sits on the board of Dress For Success Dallas and ArtLoveMagic. As the Publisher of DFW Style Daily, Amber LaFrance will connect a fashionable, motivated Metroplex audience with local and national brand partners.

If you love fashion, I strongly encourage you to become an avid follower of DFW Style Daily. I've joked for years that our styles couldn't be more different. When Lisa and I attend a function we walk in and I say, "Who's here and where's the bar?!" Lisa is looking at what people are wearing, wondering what the designer's inspiration was for the collection and talking about the impact it will have on the fashion world. Our nicknames for each other are Yin and Yang. I couldn't love her more and am thrilled to see her labor of love continue to develop and grow. If change makes you nervous, don't worry. Petty is staying on as Editor-as-Large and will continue to develop content and brand partnerships.
