Fall Calendar

  • 09.17.2014
  Hi guys! I promised a list of coming events for the book release, Hazel & Florange and Southern Design Week presented by SCFD. Here's a quick overview of the first things on the schedule. There's a lot more to come and so much in final planning, so as things are confirmed I'll be sure to post. If you'r

Where: Bellocq at the Hotel Modern Address: 936 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA When

Fade to Blue

  • 09.11.2014
"Sophie Blue started wearing a black skirt and Midnight Noir lipstick on her last birthday. It was also the day her father disappeared. Or spontaneously combusted. Which is sort of bad timing, since a Popsicle truck with tinted windows has started circling the house. Kenny Fade is a basketball god. His sneakers co

The Masks

  • 09.10.2014
Wednesday. Not my favorite. I always feel that by Wednesday I'm buried, and I can't remember how it started or how I'll make my way out. Fairly typical for lots of people I think (I never felt that in Spain... clearly a cultural difference, but that's another narrative). Last night at happy hour with girlfriends Skye

Travel Diary: ¡CELEBRACIÓN!

  • 09.09.2014
One of the most fantastic experiences of my time in Spain happened in my final week there. The Feria de la Virgen de la Cruz, from my perspective, can only be likened to Mardi Gras. Daily parades, all night dancing in the streets, food and cocktails on every corner... a whole community coming together to celebrate.

A New Orleans Style Love Affair

  • 09.08.2014
I love New Orleans. I mean, like down deep with all my heart and everything else, L-O-V-E love. And I know, that's not really new news. If you've read my blog for awhile, you definitely know it. If you're new here, well now you know. My other love? Fashion, of course. Give me a mixed print, a platform heel and

A Sartorial Tailgate

  • 09.05.2014
It's game time in Louisiana. Back to school time too, sure. But what people really care about around here... football. It's the Saints and, of course: it's LSU. So full disclosure: I've actually never been to an LSU game. Not that I don't want to. It's on my list for this season. I actually love a good tailgate,

The 504: Beauty On The Go

  • 09.02.2014
Last night I was back on The 504 TV with my girlfriend Sheba Turk, who I absolutely adore, btw. I was invited back to talk about maintaining your beauty routine while traveling. It's definitely something I learned a lot about being away this summer. My girlfriends wouldn't believe it, but I actually packed a single s

The Chill Out

  • 09.01.2014
Happy Labor Day loves! It's a full week since I've been back in the U.S. and I'm going to be honest - it's been overwhelming, exciting, scary and all consuming as I'm getting used to being back. Writing my book - which will be coming out mid-October by the way - was the absolute hardest thing I've ever done. At
