Drawing from her degree in theater with a concentration in costume design and inspired by vintage clothing Kaci works with a variety of materials including feathers, leather, unique fabrics, vintage buttons, and beads. It’s no wonder why her fascinators are sought after by brides to be, especially on the North Shore. Check out her work in person at this Saturday’s Objects of Adornment at Du Mois Gallery on Freret Street. Can’t make it to the opening? The show will run from October 8th until the end of the month.
For those of y’all on the North shore that complain about lack of places to shop you obviously haven’t been to Ruby.
Laura-Lea Reid opened Ruby on November 4th, 2003 as “the downtown original” in Hammond, Louisiana.
Ruby’s specialty is women’s denim including brands like Citizens of Humanity, Joes, and James. Other brands include Alternative Apparel, Dish, Ben Sherman, and Niven Morgan.
This is also the only place in Louisiana to purchase Billy Reid. In case you’ve been hiding out in summer humidity hibernation Billy Reid, Laura’s brother, won GQ’s best new menswear designer in America and also has a new line of workwear for Levi’s .
Laura Lea is in the shop almost every day and you’ll find her pouring mimosas for old friends and new customers alike. Shopping at Ruby feels less like just buying clothes, more like hanging out with good friends that happen to stock the cutest clothes in town. Bonus points that you can have your jeans hemmed through their seamstress service, and the turnaround time is often just a couple of hours!
If you are on the Northshore and you’re looking for a great shop with trendy, affordable clothes than Imagine Boutique is the place for you. This two year old boutique is located in downtown Hammond, LA, a small town that plays host to Southeastern Louisiana University.
With brands like , LTB, Silver, Anoname jeans, BB Dakota and lots of Saints gear to choose from there is something for everyone. Make sure to check out the sales racks too! Owner Megan Maddry often marks dresses down to as low as $15, perfect for a guilt free shopping spree.
Mannequin Monday is thanks to a little North shore field trip that I took to Hammond, LA. With black and gold fever in full force Ruby and Shop Imagine have Saints’ merchandise ready and waiting for their customers.
