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.

APR 18 So Gov. Jindal's new press secretary already has blocked blogger CB Forgotston from her Twitter account, CB tells us in this post. Sure, CB hasn't exactly been sugar sweet to the lady, but if his blogs are all it takes for her to get in a huff she better find some intestinal fortitude somewhere, because that's just the tip of the iceberg.
APR 18 Pooyie! Robert Kennedy Jr. isn't pulling any punches in this column on Huffington Post about the flood board's lawsuit against Big Oil and Bobby Jindal's involvement in efforts to kill it. Kennedy, who is president of the Waterkeeper Alliance, describes Jindal as 'genuflecting to Big Oil's pressure' and 'the industry's chief indentured servant.' Dang!
APR 18 Here's a video of UL Coach Mark Hudspeth showing he can pump some serious iron. It sure impressed the Dr. Saturday blog, which calls his press of 370 pounds a "ridiculous" number for a coach -- and opines that no other college coach could beat ours.
APR 18 Columnist John Maginnis offers some advice to Vance McAllister on this post: Don't quit. Republicans have demanded he resign, but offer no "sensible answer" to the question of why David Vitter shouldn't leave, too, he says. McAllister needs to do his duty and serve out his (abbreviated) term, Maginnis says.
APR 18 Blogger Lamar White Jr. comments upon the plan to make a Bible Louisiana's "official book" in this post. He argues his point by telling us the story of an immigrant couple who moved to Louisiana: Amar and Raj, whose oldest child is now our Governor. This action would have a much larger impact, he opines.
APR 18 There's only one major bill left defending public education, blogger Mike Deshotels writes in this post. He's also got a few choice words for state Superintendent John White, who implies that Louisiana teachers would be thrown into chaos and disarray if they didn't have a test to teach. (Maybe kids would actually get an education then? Nah!)
APR 18 An effort to set up speed cameras on the Interstate has been shut down before it even got started, columnist Stephanie Grace tells us in this post. A bill to block the practice is sailing through the legislature -- where apparently no one wants visitors to our fair state to arrive home to a ticket. (These guys must never drive on I-10 with people from Texas).
APR 18 Blogger Tom Aswell reassures everyone worried about the staffers for Rodney Alexander -- the ones who didn't go to work for McAllister or Candid Camera, anyway -- with this post. Apparently one staffer for the retired Congressman (who also worked for a preacher accused of sexual assault) already has been hired by Alexander in the state department he now runs, Aswell says.
APR 17 At the start of the Tuesday board meeting that ended with his removal from the President's post, Joe Aguillard told the governing board of Louisiana College that SACS, the accreditation agency, requires the board to adopt a confidentiality agreement regarding board actions. Later that day, SACS told the Town Talk that confidentiality agreements would never be required. Calvinist or not, isn't lying wrong?
APR 17 Here we are, looking like backwater dummies again in the national media. This story on Huffington Post tells the nation that our legislators are so scared of the Louisiana Family Forum that they won't vote to repeal a law that was ruled illegal years ago. (Guess these particular Christians don't cotton to that "love one another" thing.)
APR 17 Here's an interesting column from Paul Stanley, political opinion editor of the Christian Post. He breaks down the differences between David Vitter and Vance McAllister, in terms of political realities. What he found surprising was the fact that many GOP leaders are swinging a self-righteous sword at McAllister which had remained sheathed when Vitter's "sin" was revealed. He does have an interesting theory -- that Jindal's people want the Vitter issue to be revived.
