Amy Lewis, left, with new Knotting Hill owner Emily Clark. Lewis, who still owns Shoe La La, recently sold the Main Street boutique to Clark.
Knotting Hill was abuzz last night. Fashion’s Night was in full swing as patrons of the shop on River Ranch’s Main Street sampled delectable chocolates and got free lessons in the hot-for-fall fishtail braids we’re loving right now. And Emily Clark was being thrown into the retail deep end. The smiling blond delivered a pair of flowy shorts to a customer on her first night as the new owner of Knotting Hill, took questions from staff and then took a brief moment to explain why she took the helm of the store founded by Amy Lewis (who was also on hand looking fabulous in a sheer maxi and funky booties).
“I have a true love for it,” Emily says frankly, in an outfit that’s signature Knotting Hill.
Grey leather dress (Vince Camuto), tribal necklace and tall suede heels. A flower in her blond hair.
Emily says Knotting Hill has been a go to for her shopping.
“I’m a mom of three kids. It’s easy in and easy out,” she says. And she plans to keep things that way. “Classic but trend.”
“She’ll keep the same lines,” Amy says of the store she opened a few years ago after success at Shoe La La. “And just continue to grow.” Emily plans to continue carrying vintage jewelry with a stronger emphasis on both pieces that have been around as well as handmade pieces. And carry on the philosophy of offering customers both staples and that something special that’s worth the splurge.
We think that Vince Camuto dress is both. (Good news: it also comes in chocolate.)

OCT 21 Two St. John Parish employees were indicted in connection with the amoeba found in the parish water supply, WVUE reports in this post. They are accused of lying about testing the water for proper chlorine levels, the story says, claims that were contradicted by their government vehicles' GPS records.
OCT 21 Here's an interesting story from the National Journal about New Orleans almost 10 years post-Katrina. There are demographic information and charts, as well as some commentary about the corresponding changes in the way the city looks and works.
OCT 21 Gambit offers its endorsements for the upcoming election in this post, including an endorsement of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu. The best way to protect Louisiana's clout is to re-elect the senior senator, the paper opines. Sending a Republican in her place won't accomplish anything, the paper adds.
OCT 21 The McClatchy DC blog posts this fascinating view of Louisiana's political landscape. It's a little heavy on the cliches, and also a little heavy on the quaint Cajun/Creole shtick, but it's still good reading -- if only for the outside view of our insides.
OCT 21 An audit finds very little federal oversight of coastal restoration grants, the Advocate reports here. Two federal agencies charged with overseeing how the money was spent didn't oversee the grants properly, didn't know enough about how the grants were supposed to be spent, and provided conflicting records about the money, the audit found.
OCT 21 The first Senate debate featuring all three candidates was a big ho-hum, columnist Jim Beam writes in this post. Nobody said anything new or interesting, and nobody emerged the clear winner, he says.
OCT 21 Bobby Jindal can't seem to leave Daniel Malloy alone, this post on NOLA Defender says. On a recent trip to stump for another GOP'er (Ever wonder: does any of his stumping really help these guys? Or is he just trying to get his name in other newspapers?) Jindal again ran afoul of Connecticut's Governor, who has no problem calling Bobby on his claims, the post tells us.
OCT 21 Jeremy Alford writes about David Vitter's playbook in this post, and frankly, there are some things we don't want to know. We've all heard about what's in that book, haven't we? That kind of stuff is not our idea of a good -- oh, wait. Jeremy's writing about Vitter's political playbook. Never mind.
OCT 20 Remember those great posts from blogger Jason Brad Berry that featured emails and letters related to the BP claims process? Well, apparently Patrick Juneau (who was featured, but not in a positive way, in those documents) ordered a background check on Berry because of it, this story in Louisiana Record says. Huh?
OCT 20 The Globe and Mail, a Canadian paper, has posted its story on Louisiana's coastal loss here. In it, author Omar El Akkad clarifies it neatly: it's "a battle between prosperity and the planet's well-being." Are jobs and money worth the trade we're making? As Jonathan Foret says in the story, Mother Nature may come and answer that question for us.
