I have a confession- I’m a very selfish person. Just ask my husband- I always make sure we’re even steven when splitting a pint of ice cream, or indulging in a bottle of wine. So when Andrea Loest invited me to check out her trunk show before it was released to the public, I called a friend (hey- I’m not that greedy) and set a date to see the designs in person to get first dibs.
Andrea serves up one of a kind dresses, all handmade in New Orleans. Her creations normally retail between $600-$800 but you can get your own unique frock for a paltry $100. No two are exactly alike, but they each carry her signature style – lots of decorative stitching, repurposed fabrics, and custom dye jobs. Make your purchase at her online store, or check it out in person at her studio by setting an appointment via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s a fun way to have your own private shopping experience with a friend or two. And make sure to tell her Slow Southern Style sent ya!
