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

Polo Fields Forever

  • 10.25.2014
Last weekend I spent the day with Old New Orleans Rum at the Harvest Cup Polo Classic. It was one of those Southern fall days that was too beautiful for words. The sideline views at the event (is it called that in polo, sidelines?) were as entertaining as the match itself. Some of us cheered for team red and others f

Presently. Me: appearing in large format on your computer (or iPhone or iPad) screen as the stand-in for a Hollywood-esque glam to-all-fucking-ends-of-the-earth rock girl's photo shoot for a high end photo agency's portrait division (wow that was a lot in one breath). I spent yesterday at the Oasis Motel on the West

Manic Mercury Monday

Some days. I swear to god. Like, for real SWEAR, loudly and often. It's usually Mondays. Or sometimes Wednesdays. You guys know how I feel about a Wednesday. But today I decided that rather than swearing, I'm replacing it with laughing. Really. Because wtf. For the most part, we all have it pretty damn good around

#HazelGirls Take Florida

  • 10.11.2014
Hi loves! I'm presently on the beautiful beaches of 30A, in Destin, Florida for South Walton Fashion Week. Last night was my show for the Emerging Designer Runway event and I've got lots of behind the scenes photos to come. The rush I get from the backstage craziness is wild, and I can't wait to be on the other side

New Orleans Style Snaps

  • 10.05.2014
This week has been an absolute wild one. I signed my book deal in January and 10 months later seeing that baby come to fruition has been surreal. The release party at Bellocq at the Hotel Modern was such a special night. So many of my closest friends and creative entrepreneurs making this city a more beautiful and br
