As the city prepares to host the biggest sporting event of the year, it’s easy to see that New Orleans is not only one of the best cities for hosting a party, but also one of America’s most forward and progressive communities. Our city offers entrepreneurial advantages to many young business people, cultural experiences a plenty, and so much music that on nearly any night of the week, one can stumble upon an amazing performance. It would be safe to say that New Orleans is on the map! Additionally, New Orleans is becoming a budding fashion center. Similar to cities like New York and L.A., a few ladies and gents that reside below the Mason Dixon line have created fashion and lifestyle blogs that rival those on the East and West Coasts. So, without further adieu, here are a few of my daily reads:
Katie and Rachel are two of the sweetest, most driven girls that I know. They have endless amounts of energy, inspiration, and ideas. Along with a daily blog and work as independent stylists, both editorial and personal, they are also T-shirt designers.
I recently found HOTR a few weeks ago, and it was love at first sight. I love Jennifer’s elegant style and professional quality photography. I am thrilled that we have a refreshing and bright daily outfit blog in the Louisiana area.
Cristy has a great sense of personal style that seamlessly mixes vintage with new. Because she is a manager of a resale boutique, Cristy deeply understands fashion and trends.
Elizabeth, Martine, Amy, CC and Lacey delight in combining five different ultra-chic perspectives. Find the tastes of this fab five all in one place!
Andi Eaton is our resident vintage pinup girl. Not only does Andi head up the New Orleans Fashion Council, but she also doubles as the coordinator of New Orleans Fashion Week (in it’s fifth season: March 2-9). She recently added “fashion designer” to her repertoire.
Scott Simon is one of the sweetest people in this city. Endlessly connected and always smiling, I Heart NOLA is easily one of my favorite blogs this city has to offer. His determination to produce great content and drive to meet the newest business owners is outstanding. He truly appreciates a fashionista!
What started as a blog is now a fully functioning hub for e-commerce and fashion. Primarily on Facebook (with an occasional in-home/store/gallery pop-up shop), Candace has grown this promising idea into a great place to meet, talk, and share one’s love of personal style.
