Roosevelt

lipstick - MAC Russian Red

I made a dramatic arrival at The Roosevelt in New Orleans; I felt a full out vintage getup was necessary for a city so rich in history. Or maybe I just felt like it.

I ended up giving up on the jaunty hat in the humid afternoon, when Bobby and I went out to meet my two good friends Christine and Lindsey for beignets at Cafe Du Monde. I have so much to show you from our amazing New Orleans trip, but for now please check out My Style Pill and Saucy Glossie for more photos. I'll be driving back up the East Coast to NYC, so my updates might lag behind theirs for a couple more days.
