This time of year one of the easiest ways to look utterly holiday lies in your accessory choices. And while we love traditional holiday wares, we've spotted a couple of cool options that can go from day to night and keep your holiday look totally fresh.
Let's start with the footwear. These flirty little patent shoes from Shoe La La are just what St. Nick ordered and certainly IND Style approved. We're all about colored footwear around here. (And never get tired of the nude hued shoe trend.) The bit of sparkle on the toe? Can't get enough sparkle this season. We'd wear them with cropped navy (or black) velvet pants, skinny forest green jeans or a demure little lace dress of with a circle skirt. They'd also be fantastic with dressy shorts of lace, silk or tweed.
Over at kiki, Alexis Bittar's newest wares are brighter than the Griswold lawn and yet (of course) totally chic. Give the neon trend an utterly uptown vibe with these bangles that would be perfect with black head to toe. (I know, I know ... I love all things with a pop of color and black head to toe.) If you're brave, pair them with this winter's surprising pastels. How lovely with mint green, lavender or bubble gum pink! (Bubble gum pink dressing for the holidays deserves an exclamation point.)
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
