Golden Obsessions

  • 11.19.2014
“listen: there’s a hell of a good universe next door; let’s go” ― E.E. Cummings wearing vintage via Hazel & Florange   I get obsessed fairly easily. Like not in a crazy, fan girl, type way. Ok, maybe on occasion .... ask my friend Rebecca about the time we ran into the Muleavy sisters on Frenc

Mondaze. Beauty Faves. Flat Lay.

  • 11.17.2014
Getting ready in the morning on Mondays is never, ever easy... despite an 8 p.m. bedtime due to all this dreary weather. Making pretty flat lays makes it just a tad easier. So, here's what I've got on today's rotation. All my faves plus a little plug of my book for good measure. p.s. NOLA friends: come out to Maple

The Dance

  • 11.14.2014
I have a serious thing about time. I've referenced this NYT article "Why You Won't Be the Person You Expect to Be" here quite a few times, and I continue to go back to it often. It discusses the concept of “history illusion” - the idea that we all underestimate how much we'll change in future. That we think o

If Stevie Nicks’ Color Was Gold

I think - communicating in photos makes it sometimes easier to say more. And then sometimes, I get nervous, so then it's words. In a photo (or in writing, or designing a dress, or making music, for that matter) you can create a character. And that particular character can be nothing like the creator her/himself or c

Sunset on the Mississippi

  • 11.10.2014
“All good New Orleanians go to look at the Mississippi at least once a day. At night it is like creeping into a dark bedroom to look at a sleeping child -- something of that sort -- gives you the same warm nice feeling, I mean.” Yesterday marked the close of Southern Design Week, and after 7 days strai

First Look: Hazel & Florange S/S 2015

  • 11.07.2014
Last night was a dream! I have so much love and appreciation for everyone that helped bring the H&F SS2015 Collection to life... I can't even begin to list each of you here and now. It's a bit unreal producing an event, and then allowing my crazy brain to show my collection at that same event, but somehow it wo

Southern Design Week Begins!

  • 11.03.2014
"Fashion insiders around the country are taking notice now more than ever due in large part to a tribe of young entrepreneurs who choose to call NOLA home. With its unique slant of promoting regional brands and authenticity, it's a catalyst for the rejuvenation of the city’s fashion industry."  Stephanie

A Girl with Ghosts

  • 10.30.2014
It's Voodoo Weekend. And Halloween. And while I write this from one of the most haunted cities in the world I'm not referring to actual ghosts. (If you're a Halloween junkie sorry to disappoint, but you can see my Halloween recommendations on tonight's The 504.) And while Voodoo is one of my favorite things ever, th

The 504: New Orleans Style

  • 10.28.2014
Sometimes when I think about all that's happened this year, I have to take a second... like a proverbial pinch myself second. The experience of writing New Orleans Style was one of the most difficult and rewarding things I've ever done. When I think back to the beginning of the year it seems surreal - from that initial
