Manic Mercury Monday

  • 10.20.2014
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

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.

New Orleans Style Snaps

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

Hi loves, I'm taking just a second today to reflect and share a few thoughts. A little midweek rehashing of sorts...

The Equinox: Look to The Sky.  "In the fall, I believe again in poetry if nothing else it is a movement of the mind.*" The people of so many summers and autumns past spent much more time outside than we do. The sky had a different job then. It was both a clock and a calendar and people watched the sun travel
