Just a few of my favorite things
My favorite things are hard to pick. This week there were too many to really get just three. But, here we go.
I had to go with an ensemble that includes a hat. This IND Styler can’t emphasize enough how very much you should find a hat style that best suits your lovely face and rock it without fear. (And don’t do the “I’m not a hat person thing.” There are so many styles and one that’s sure to look great on you so give them a try and say goodbye to fixing your hair every day.)
Vanessa V. is a great spot to snag hats and we love this sassy version of a fedora with waxed python print jeans and long black top. It’s a great ensemble both day and night and the pants — while edgy for some — are actually quite versatile. Add an easy comfy sweater and tall boots or a silky top and blazer for diverse options.
At kiki, they have too many great pieces. But, we’re in love with this little fox bracelet. Perhaps it’s the fall vibe of woodland creatures, but there’s something that makes us think of turning leaves and cooling temps.
Footwear for fall is all over the place from sexy pointy heels to distressed boots, but we can’t get enough of the versatile bootie and these pony hair ones from Shoe La La are as sexy as it comes. Wear with skirts and dresses or skinny jeans, but whatever you do, don’t cover up that fabulous gold exposed zipper and textured heel.

MAR 6 In this week's post, Jim Brown is remembering former Gov. Jimmie Davis, who was sworn in 70 years ago this week. Included in here is the governor's recipe for raccoon, which was his favorite dish, Brown says. He also tells us who "Sunshine" was - Jimmie's palomino. She's buried at the late governor's farm, Brown says.
MAR 6 Columnist James Gill applies his special combination of wit and sarcasm to our friend Don Briggs in this post. Gill read the oil and gas leader's deposition and almost felt sorry for him -- almost. The problem seems to be related to Mr. Brigg's "stupendous ignorance of his purported area of expertise," Gill writes. He also credits Briggs with doing more for the environmental cause in a couple hours than tree-huggers can accomplish in years.
MAR 6 If you're on the Facebook, you've seen this video of two NOLA police officers line dancing with some Mardi Gras revelers. But this one is even better: it's a NOLA police horse line dancing on Bourbon Street. Hey -- this is Louisiana. We all can get down, if the situation calls for it.
MAR 6 Here's some more new info on the continuing controversy at Louisiana College, this time posted on the Tennessean (so maybe this story is pretty interesting outside of Louisiana, too). The story, originally written by Town Talk reporters, tells us about a document with allegedly forged signatures which was sent to SACS, the organization which issues accreditation for southern universities and colleges. The plot thickens?
MAR 6 When one reads a story like this one on KATC about the person or persons unknown who stole a huge duck balloon, three questions come to mind. First, what kind of person steals a huge balloon used to advertise a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club? And second, how can that person drive off with a huge balloon -- and attract no attention at all? And of course, the biggie: what you gonna do with that?
MAR 6 If you're interested in how things might look in 20 or 30 years, here's a good indication. This post by a 19-year-old sophomore in the LSU Reveille is the first in a series about racism. Written by a white girl, it argues that we must discuss racism and acknowledge its existence. We can't pretend it doesn't exist anymore - because it does, she says.
MAR 6 LaPolitics is doing the math on the state's unclassified workforce, and it looks pretty good -- if you're part of it. The top 50 unclassified positions in state government are making a combined $17 million, LaPolitics reports. That's $3 million more than when Jindal took office. (It's also an average salary of $340,000 in case you're interested) What's really interesting is that a lot of these positions are related to college athletics. Huh.
MAR 6 What does Ash Wednesday in NOLA look like? Beaded trees. This Picayune story takes a look at one narrow aspect of the annual clean-up following Mardi Gras: the beads hanging from trees. It takes weeks for crews to remove the trash from the trees, the story tells us.
