I love fringe. And I love pink. I don't wear either often. And I certainly have never worn the two together. But, Brooke Lynn Wright could certainly change that.
The Top Design finalist presented a bevy of boho looks that brought a kind of uptown vibe to a collection that was strongly bohemian, a whole lotta hippie and felt utterly authentic in both veins.

The first dress out of the gate had this IND Styler's attention — perfectly placed rows of pink pink fringe that nearly gave the appearance of a shimmer so fluidly they moved. With pieces in the collection of rich mustard and a pair of jeans I'd wear every day of the week with a tank and some funky jewelry (and maybe my favorite floppy hat if it's a hat kind of day), Brooke managed to do design that looks every day wearable without being close to ordinary. The devil, you see, was in the details.
The looks were executed with a kind of quality and purpose that was clear despite the distressed vibe and lax attitude. But our absolute favorite piece on the runway wasn't hanging from a beautiful model. It came by way of Brooke's fantastic vest. As she walked the runway with her model, her presence was in a word — effervescent —and her look was in a word — flawless.

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.
