Take that woman on down to New Orleans










Outfit Details:

shirt, skirt, belt - thrifted
madison leather satchel - courtesy of Coach
dany platforms - courtesy of Jessica Simpson

I traded in a demure pair of flats for sky-high platforms, which makes absolutely no sense for a stroll through New Orleans. We met Christine and Lindsey for beignets at Cafe Du Monde, took a walk along the river, explored the French Quarter and beyond, and headed back to the hotel for a quick refresh. From there, we met with the absolutely amazing ladies and gents of Sparkle Beetle and NOLAFW at the Martine Chaisson Gallery for a pre-panel tour of the space (beyond words), and drinks and appetizers at Capdeville. We then headed back to the Gallery, where we participated in a panel discussion (moderated by Raina - to know her is to love her) on blogging, fashion and such - and had a chance to talk with many intimidatingly well-dressed citizens of New Orleans. Dinner was held at Ste. Marie, where we further initiated our NOLA food coma tour and had an overall great time. And that was just the first day! Needless to say, we all fell in love with New Orleans and its inhabitants at first sight. I think all four of us have said, "I miss New Orleans" several times since our departure. What an amazing place.

  17. Those shoes are incredible but yes walking around downtown is an exercise in...well it's just an exercise in staying upright sometimes! I usually stash a pair of flats in my bag if I know I'm going to the French Quarter but I want to wear heels. There is nothing chic about a bloody knee.

  18. Oh, miss Keiko, this outfit is just squeal-inducingly cute. Good thing nobody's around, they might have gotten a scare! I applaud your bravery for wearing the Danys on cobblestone, and that hat you featured in the first post of this outfit...*sigh*...perfection!

    Also, holy cow, real beignets. I would like them in my face. Right now.

  19. Your adventure in New Orleans sounded amazing. Makes me want to pay a visit there too. You are so lovely in that red, and don't you just love the JS Dany's? I have them in black and cognac, too. Unbelievably comfortable for towering heels.

    much love.

  45. I recently vacationed in New Orleans with my family and I love it. It was my second time in the Big Easy and it was fabulous to see all the sites, the original artwork, the street performers! I didn't do much shopping but instead did more exploring. The only thing I'm never going to miss is the smell!
