There are few events that inspire this book worm, reading lovin’ momma like the Women’s Leadership Council. And when you pair that with a sea of lovely ladies dressed totally “springtime chic” (per the invite from United Way), you get a luncheon that’s got beauty and brains. (A lot like those gals over at United Way of Acadiana.)
The ladies at the Tuesday luncheon represented a great cross section of trends from Angela Cole (the chair that’s clearly doing something right with 300-plus peeps rolling out for the affair) in a color block dress of purple and red with super sassy heels covered in spikes to Charon Harris in the season’s must have black and white (bonus: it’s also a tribal print, which is another biggie).
The first gal I spotted on the style radar was Shannon Lynd (I have a true affection for red heads) with her vibrant hair and even more vibrant dress paired with perfect wedges
The table of Sharon Moss was festive from Jackie Lyles’ pretty pink to Sharon herself in a vibrant dress and perfectly contrasted fresh green statement necklace.
There are few mother-daughter duos that nail the classic look like Debbie Foreman and Emily Babineaux — the luncheon was no exception to their effortless style that borders on southern with a sense of refinement. Debbie did linen right with white pants and her signature statement lips while Emily was lovely in a white dress with green statement necklace that had us green with envy. And if you weren’t already jealous … this gal is pretty pregnant (had to get out the magnifying glass to spot the baby bump in her middle whittling dress).
United Way’s Stephanie Mire was on duty today and definitely on point in a pale blue dress that fit the lovely blue invites and signage at the event. Always a classic, Stephanie paired her Jackie-O vibe dress with demure neutral heels (just the way to elongate the legs, ladies — and that never goes out of style).

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 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.
