  • I Heart NOLA did a great write up about Brinkman’s Menswear. If you mention the feature you can receive a 25% discount.
  • Are you torturing your feet in those 4 inch stilettos? The Gambit Weekly is here to help. I personally stopped sacrificing comfort and rarely break out a pair of heels. Unless I’m going to dinner or know I will be sitting all day flats comprise my everyday wear. 
  • Create your own fashionable spring break by attending Miami Fashion Week March 18th-20th 2010.
  • If you are still in need of a Halloween costume check out Elysian Fleas (get it?) a new art/craft market that will be selling handmade costumes. Check it out on Sunday, 11am-5pm on the corner of Elysian Fields and Chartres.
  • Do you want free makeup samples and a fall fashion show? Dillard’s at Lakeside Mall is hosting their 2nd annual trend show October 10th from 8:30am-10:00am. There will be a light breakfast, product demonstrations and a free gift to all event attendees. Get there early because seating is limited.

Stormin’ of the Sazerac

The newly reopened Roosevelt Hotel is having a “Stormin’ of the Sazerac” tomorrow at 2:00pm. Prior to the original event women were only allowed to drink in the bar on Mardi Gras. Revelers are encouraged to wear 1940s attire or a glamorous vintage getup. If I wasn’t doing the unglamorous task of having my tail lights fixed I’d be dressed to the nines and fashionably late.

Fashion Week

Alabama Chanin’s Spring 2010 collection  is currently up for perusal on style.com
I love the easy feeling of this collection. These are (soon to be) old favorites that can be layered into an existing wardrobe and worn season after season.

Slow Southern News

I had a vision of doing some sort of weekly news links but just as the title suggests the South is sloooow in the fashion news front. I’ll share my three measly links anyway.
  • Karen Elson opened a vintage store in Nashville, TN. This might be a good reason to travel to Tennessee! I haven’t been since I was a kid. 
  • New Orleans Fashion Week is having a casting call for models on September 19th at the W Hotel. The website says 5 to 8 but doesn’t indicate if that is a.m. or p.m
  • The SPCA is looking for models to work a fashion show benefit in February. 
I’m getting set to do some more local designer interviews and shop profiles so brace yourselves!
