There are few things this IND Styler loves more than a statement piece — necklaces and earrings in particular. And so, I was enamored by the o-so funky necklaces I spotted at Shoe Fits and Shoe La La.
While sherbety colors are ruling the spring (every other piece is mint and if it's not mint then it's … mint), the boho/eclectic/funky vibe is going strong (aren't you glad? I'm glad).
These statement necklaces are the perfect way to take a traditional look quickly to a new place. A simple t-shirt plus bold necklace takes you from boring to boho with zero effort.
As spring arrives we're seeing the new length in skirts make its debut — the midi. Somewhere between the full length maxi and a mini lies the new hemlines. Come spring you'll be showing those shins. But, for now, an easy way to nail the look? A pair of flat boots, plus an easy t-shirt or three-quarter sleeve knit or denim shirt and one of these necklaces — instant eclectic vibe.
The high drama necklaces we spotted over at Shoe Fits are a recent snag at market. We're loving the glossy turquoise one and dying for the multi-hued pieces that hint at the tribal vibe that's still going strong. They would be perfection with a funky print if you're feeling fearless.
And the collection of custom creations at Shoe La La are great solo or layered together. The pieces are made by an employee who uses vintage finds to create one-of-a-kind designs that will work now and later. Jewelry with a history is certainly one for the the IND Style books.

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.
