Style on the geaux
This IND Styler has been to her fair share of football games. As a gal in the south I've braved sweltering heat sunburns at the first kickoff and bundled up thicker than that kid in A Christmas Story for bowl games. There are two kinds of women at football games: the ones with nothing more than a tube of chapstick in their pocket and girls like me. You know us … carrying giant handbags and wearing a full face of makeup.
And so, in honor of the Cajuns big game this weekend I've gathered some pieces whether you're hitting the stands in a hoodie or something a little more haute.
Cajun fans are lucky. Red and black are naturally a great color combo. And thanks to the ridiculously fantastic trend of colored denim, red jeans are everywhere. We've picked a pair from Vanessa V. that are pepper hot. They paired it with a funky denim shirt in black and white. But, those red jeans could truly work with anything this weekend. A slouchy sweater, a preppy button down, even a weathered sporty t-shirt would be great with some funky sneakers. (And for months to come you can rock that red denim with any and every color for an on trend look.)
Over at Hemline we eyed some black waxed jeans. Perfect paired with a red sweater or t-shirt and cute enough to rock post game for drinks on the town.
At Jewelie's some leather shorts are what the daring fashionista wears for a bowl game. Pair with opaque tights to winterize the look and try some little black booties on the feet.
Brother's on the Boulevard has an awesome poncho-ish sweater we're digging. Perfect over skinny skinny black denim or leggings and some riding boots. And then there was Tory. Over at kiki, Tory Burch bags in a vibrant hot red are a statement that screams 'Geaux Cajuns' now and will be cute through the winter and into spring.

NOV 21 Bobby Jindal is headed to Iowa again, the Des Moines Register reports here. The paper outlines what's going on with Bobby's non-campaign for president, and there's a lot of stuff here -- too bad none of it sounds like somebody running Louisiana. Hey, wasn't that the job he wanted?
NOV 21 The end of the term has come for the grand jury investigating a lucrative Medicaid contract and a former state health official's ties to the company that won it, the Advocate reports here, but that doesn't mean the investigation into this stinkiness is over. There are still some things to look into, the lead prosecutor says.
NOV 21 With the passage of two amendments to Louisiana's much-amended constitution (it has been amended almost 200 times now) higher education has an even bigger target on its collective back, columnist Jim Beam opines in this post. Higher ed used to share the spotlight with health care, but that has changed, he says.
NOV 21 Here's a weird one: The Louisiana Cannabis Industry Association has endorsed Bill Cassidy for the U.S. Senate. Apparently, Mary Landrieu said she wouldn't consider support of medical marijuana but Cassidy said he would, WWL reports here.
NOV 21 Solange Knowles, possibly best-known for assaulting her brother-in-law in an elevator while wearing an ugly dress after the Met Ball, got married in the Marigny Opera House this past weekend, the New York Times reports here. Knowles, who has a house in the Faubourg Marigny district and owns a boutique in the Quarter, married Alan Ferguson.
NOV 21 This post on the Fuel Fix blog outlines a $1.4 billion move announced this week by the Apache Corp. that includes the sale of assets in south Louisiana. The company's interests in more than 90,000 acres in south Louisiana are some of the assets being sold, the post reports.
NOV 21 One (possible) positive from Hurricane Katrina is a comprehensive zoning ordinance for New Orleans. Nine years later, we're getting closer to that being finalized, but the current version has some problems. Here's the latest in a series of posts on The Lens in which residents give their views of the draft; this one is more amusing than most.
NOV 21 The new NOLA smoking ordinance is going to harsh your (nicotine) buzz, man. This post on Gambit outlines the high (or low, as the case may be) points: it includes electronic cigarettes and hookahs in its bans; eliminates smoking within 25 feet of any building's public entrance and in any public space - or near any public space - operated by the city.
NOV 20 Politico reports here that Bobby Jindal won't be kept out of the presidential race by anyone else's candidacy. (If he's running, which he's not, 'cause he's not done prayin' on it) So he's not interested in who is running, or what the polls say, or how much money he's got? K.
NOV 20 NOLA Defender's Tiny Daiquiri has a little fun with Bobby Jindal's Meet the Press appearance in this post. Bobby is still prayin' on whether or not he'll run for the job he's been running for over the past three years, Tiny says.
