What I Wore: Post Christmas Festivities

I’ve been enjoying three days off thanks to Christmas, and spending time with my sister while she’s in town. From watching bad reality shows at mom’s house on Xmas day, to introducing our dogs, a Greyhound and a French Bulldog, to each other and watching them fight over toys, it’s been a fun holiday break.
Our to do list also included supping at Matt & Naddies, a quaint bistro “where Freret meets the river.” With no hype or pretense, it’s certainly an underrated spot where only locals or in the know tourists go. I’ve been to Matt & Naddies a handful of times, and it never disappoints. Any excuse for a stellar meal- awww hell we don’t need an excuse, just good company and a reservation.

Oxford American presents: Sewn In The South

Oxford American, which touts itself as “The Southern Magazine of Good Writing”, is revamping their website with fresh content and “all-star” columnists. There’s everything from fashion, film, food, art, music and literature.  I’m pleased and extremely honored to be a part of their new digital endeavors with my bi-weekly column, Sewn in the South. From well established brands to skilled individuals just starting out, my focus is on discovering talent below the Mason-Dixon line.

My first feature is a brand that’s well on its way to being classified as an iconic New Orleans label. Jolie & Elizabeth have managed to make seersucker cool again, with their line of dresses, skirts, and pants. Whether they’re sticking to a traditional look or incorporating the latest trends, these ladies really understand what their customers want.

Read the Jolie & Elizabeth profile here, and don’t forget to check out the other columns as well.
