Ladies in red
Each year the Go Red luncheon grows. The American Heart Association's signature event is filled with fabulous ladies decked in red. Red maxis and shifts and flirty skirts. There are hats on occasion and bold red statement necklaces. And each year there are more of these ladies filling the ballroom of the Hilton. This year was no different.
They broke the records again this year with more than 500 gals enjoying inspiring words with speakers like the local coach's wife everyone loves — Tyla Hudspeth — and the daughter of iconic comedy royalty everyone loves — Lucie Arnaz (yes, that daughter of Lucy and Desi). And quite a few fabulous outfits we were loving at IND Style.
Fashionista Sharon Moss went red in a dress with lace details. We're seeing lace continuing into the spring as a must have. And we're loving the neckline on her dress — a red carpet trend that is as flattering as it is subtly sexy.
Tyla looked great in a simple red dress with a design that whittles the middle. And while she certainly needs no help in that department, the dress is one that would certainly work if someone did need a more defined waist.
Vanessa Vicari, owner of Vanessa V., brought out a posse of gals all wearing her signature wares. There was Roxanne Graham in a too-cute one-shoulder that's a great day to night dress. And several maxi dresses that are just the ticket for this bipolar weather. Miss V. went with a black dress and bold red necklace. A dress that also works day to night with the change of accessories. Also a great palette for super funky statement necklaces. Our favorite among them all? Crystall Coroy. She wore a sleeveless dress with geometric print and in a surprising twist paired it with a funky mint necklace. It really is all about the mint.
Pairing pastels with bold is just what we're loving for spring. The more unexpected the better. We just love to be surprised.

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 This week, Jim Brown is blogging about the big Keystone vote, and the sudden urgency with which some politicians have attacked the issue. Why is everybody all on fire now? Jim wants to know why they didn't care before the election.
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.
NOV 20 In light of the recent inspector general's report about NOLA police detectives' extreme incompetence in investigating sex crimes, columnist Stephanie Grace is remembering another bad time in NOLA police history. Unfortunately, it seems like that's all there is to remember - bad times.
NOV 20 Columnist Jarvis DeBerry is writing about a recent discussion about gun violence at the Public Health Association meeting. The discussion focused on data, and the shortage of it, since gun lobbies block any meaningful public research on the subject of gun violence. Do we need the numbers to stop the deaths?
NOV 19 Jason Brad Berry, who blogs on American Zombie, has been scarce lately, but he's back with this lengthy, meaty post about the latest in the BP claims process mess. It's not a big surprise, but a lot of what he has to report is stinky, stinky, stinky. Stinky.
NOV 19 The former mayor of Sorrento, arrested last month on child pornography charges, didn't get the answer he wanted from a federal judge, the Advocate reports here. Wilson Longanecker Jr. wanted his $1 million bail reduced, and after hearing details of his arrest, the judge declined.
