The Daily Dose

  • 05.19.2015
After a weekend of daily doses of vitamin D, a little C (well in my mimosas and on this super adorable bag at least), I'm back in New Orleans and back to real life. Here's what I wore on day 1 of Hangout, and I have to say this is perhaps the chicest beach ensemble I own. From the moment I got dressed I solemnly

  Hi loves! I'm packing for another Festival Weekend and this time I'm headed to Hangout Festival compliments of Nylon Magazine! (Woooo, thanks Nylon!)

New Orleans Jazz Fest: Weekend 2 Recap

  • 05.09.2015
 “New Orleans is the only place I know of where you ask a little kid what he wants to be and instead of saying “I want to be a policeman,” or “I want to be a fireman,” he says, I want to be a musician.” * Looking back over the last few weeks of music in this city I'm reminded that one of the things I lo

Oui We Loves: The French Quarter

  • 05.06.2015
I've lived in this city for 6 years and btw, in the time warp of life I can't even kind of believe it's been that long. When I landed here, I expected a stay of 2 or 3 years or so - gypsy girls never settle down - and somehow even with summers that exude a heat only too much tequila can create, mosquito

New Orleans Jazz Fest: Weekend 1 Recap

  • 04.29.2015
If you hang around here long enough you'll find that a. I'm a total music junky (I like my music like I like my champagne ... daily and in good size doses) and b. festival season, and specifically festivals of the musical variety make me the happiest. I consider myself a lucky girl. Presently working in the art

Pizza. Delicious.

Well. These overalls clearly speak for themselves. I, mean, I've never met a denim overall I didn't like. And these by Holt McCall, created by super cutie Southern girl gone to NY and now back to her roots, Tippi Clark are the absolute tops. The skinny fit, I swear, like a glove. And when I told

Flourish Fever

Electric flesh-arrows ... traversing the body. A rainbow of color strikes the eyelids. A foam of music falls over the ears.   - Anaïs Nin || The Diary of Anaïs Nin, vol. 2, entry for Oct. 1937.

Travel Diary: Honolulu

  • 04.15.2015
Loves, After too many days I'm finally grounded back in New Orleans and sharing a few snaps from my time in Honolulu. I never go this long without posting, and I have to say - my life has taken some interesting new directions as of the recent months and I'm in a place of reseting. That reset feels good, different, s

Optical Delusion

  • 03.30.2015
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness...” Albert Einstein, 1954 I have these moments.
