I'm playing girl on a Parisian holiday complete with beret and flirty skirt. And since the weather decided to go full on schizo to finally transition into what December feels like for normal people between the hours of 10 (it was 80) and 5 (dropped to 50 and continuing to drop) yesterday my entire being i

In New Orleans, we never need an excuse for a cocktail or a celebration. But December 5th marks the repeal of prohibition. And that, mon
Living in the Bywater I often liken my neighborhood to a Caribbean city. Of course it's been called that, which I've mentioned so many times before - but really - daily, I'm inspired by the color and texture that seems to exists only here, in my artistically beautiful neighborhood.

Sometimes a girl just wants to dress like a lady. I'm not so much of the pink and pearl set, however, after a weekend of running around in flat bills, cut off shorts, and oversized everything - floating into the week in a ladylike maxi (this one the Hazel & Florange "Flower Child" is simply a favorite) and the
Boom. It's Halloween in NOLA. My best girls are here. The bf's back in town. Voodoo Fest starts tomorrow. The baby sis is flying in. So basically: all is right in my Marigny/Bywater world.
I'm so excited to spend the weekend enjoying music in City Park. Voodoo is definitely one of my favorite festivals, and the
