I like to think my music varies. Although my favorite music is R&B (80s-early 2000s) and Hip-Hop, I also love alternative music. I feel like I have a new favorite song every week. There is just so many good music being made that it makes it hard to choose! But here my list is…for the time.
#MUSICMONDAY feat. Julie McCullough
Some of these songs pull me through, some remind me of beautiful times & people in my life; some take me back. Nonetheless, all of these songs transport me, even if for just a minute.

Julie McCullough is one of Dallas' top multi-hyphenates. This badass lady is not only the mind behind Folksie, a clothing line she launched in 2011, but also The Pin Show, a one-night event combining the best up-and-coming fashion designers & music acts on the runway.

Her path to maker, fashion designer, seamstress & producer was paved with grit, determination & a dedication to thoughtful design & collaboration. She aspires to be a champion for those who enjoy the process of hand-made goods while emboldening artists & entrepreneurs with her success as a passionate, self-made creator, designer & event producer.
