Native Austinite Shelby Krause Goff, who now lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, has always turned heads with her effervescent personality. Here, her longtime pal Lance Avery Morgan caught up with this stylish dynamo, busy wife and mother of two, who is living her own version of La Dolce Vita.
I made my first dollar growing up by…Running a lemonade stand during the Fiesta Art Festival at Laguna Gloria (only long-time Austinites will remember this one). I thought I’d made a killing by walking away with $40.
The first album I bought was…Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time. And yes, I still know every word to every single song on the album.
If I lived in a foreign city it would be…London. I don’t even need a flat–I’ll just live in a booth at La Petite Maison.
What I love most about living in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is…Besides the wonderful and incredibly interesting people? The amazing restaurants, world-renowned art scene, and the unlimited events and activities at all hours of the day. I haven’t been bored one day while living here.
One thing I am exceptionally good at that most might not know is…Horseback riding and sewing. Both are oddly very therapeutic.
The beauty essential you’d have to pry out of my cold, dry hands is…Sunscreen. Always and forever. Right now, I’m using La Roche-Posay Anthelios Ultra-Light Mineral Sunscreen with a few drops of SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum.
My style icon is…Lauren Santo Domingo. She is perfection.
My personal style signifier is…Old Elegance. Think Gwyneth Paltrow (classic with an edge) and Grace Kelly (but without the fabulous bling).
Last thing I binge/marathon watched that I recommend is…Killing Eve. It’s hilarious and thrilling. I also love anything involving espionage.
Book that left a lasting impression on me was…The Price of Privilege by Madeline Levine, PhD.
The last meal that truly impressed me was…In Milan last week on vacation. I was completely blown away by our dinner at Dal Bolognese. It’s the first time my husband, Travis, actually took pictures of his food.
In my fridge you will always find…Besides toddler food and wine? I always try to have a vegetable tray within arm’s length in an attempt to keep me from reaching for my children’s goldfish.
The best gift I have given recently is…My in-laws just finished a beautiful new home in Fort Worth. It was truly a labor of love for them. I had a rendering of their new home engraved onto a silver tray. I love that they now display it with pride.
My perfect day would end with…Sitting in my backyard with a glass of wine, my little boys playing and my husband manning the grill.
