Slow Southern Anniversary!

One year ago today I was searching for fashion blogs to read, specifically ones based in New Orleans. I was coming up empty handed so I decided to take matters into my own hands and start one myself.

I know what you are thinking. Does the blogosphere need another fashion blog? The internet is infiltrated by fashion insiders and amateurs alike. Now ask your self this- does the blogosphere need a New Orleans fashion blog? The answer is quite simply, yes. While there is much content devoted to what’s hot on the Paris runways and what the SoHo scenesters are donning on the streets, there is a scant trace of southern style available for perusal.

That said I’d like to welcome you to Slow Southern Style. Written from a fashion follower and retail insider this blog serves the purpose of showcasing New Orleans fashion in all formats. Whether it be on a mannequin or on the street you will find it here.

My first interview ever thanks to Beloved Light Vintage 

That was the beginning, my friends. Since that first post the blog has grown up and I’m glad that there are interested readers out there. I’m also now part of the Go NOLA team and am working on a few other exciting projects as well, one of which will be announced September 7th.

I have to give credit where credit is due. This blog would not have been possible without guidance from my good friend Leslie Almeida of NOLA Eats, Eatventful, and Unmade. Leslie is the sole reason I signed up Slow Southern Style for social networking in the first place. She won Gambit’s 2010 web awards for “Best Social Networker” so I always listen when she has something to say.

Once again thanks for reading and show your support by adding Slow Southern Style on Facebook and Twitter.

Imagine this
