Summer is, I guess, officially over. But it really just started in San Francisco, which is why it suddenly feels appropriate to post these pictures from my visit to New Orleans in May. New Orleans, the city of myriad enchantments, including the fabled Hand Grenade, a radioactive green drink made from the fermented juice of god-knows-what. Fact: if you have too many of these, your vomit will be the exact same color. I hate them, but I had to subject Wardell to their grossness for his inaugural trip. It's a rite of passage.

Love this dress. I've also worn it here, here, and here. It's always a sad day when I have to officially retire it to the "out of season" box under my bed.

  5. YEah New Orleans! I had a good time there when I was 19, right before Katrina. Any city that raised Lil Weezy is a favorite of mine. And shame your gonna temporarily retire the dress. You dont want to wear it with tights and a blazer? Or you just wore it too much. It's real purdy as my g-ma would say.

  6. Lovely dress - not sure you could get away with that flimsy thing in London at this time of year. I was just noticing today that the leaves are starting to curl up and look like they'll be falling of the trees shortly. My only concern is that my figs haven't ripened yet - the summer's been s**te here - and I'm dreaming of figs with goats cheese, honey and pine nuts..

  9. hehe, what did you have in mind for a hair post? I don't really do much to it...just wash (sometimes condition) and then it air dries or goes in a bun overnight if I want waves XD
