A Trip To New Orleans

Hello Darlings,

This week I have some great adventures to share with you from my recent trip to New Orleans. First of all, what a fun city! Oh how the drinks and "po boys" did flow! (I'm still recovering...)

My first stop was at a small business in the heart of the french quarter. At this tiny shop they are selling these darling 1940's style dresses. They are not vintage, but cut to vintage patterns and beautifully made. The owner, Lewis, has three stores and I am all for supporting a small and growing business. Visit their website here: Italy Direct

These photos were taken by the fabulous Megan S Thobe, a shopgirl at the store who also runs an amazing Puppet Company called Most Monster Productions (more about her and the company later in the week). First enjoy these gorgeous dresses that are made by a company in LA called Stop Staring.

P.S The bag is called "To Die For" as it's made in the shape of a coffin!!!
