Earlier this month, my husband attended a conference in New Orleans and I tagged along for a break from the homestead. So here’s the next part of the trip I want to share.
There are some FABULOUS shops in New Orleans! Here are a few I thought were fun and interesting.
My friend, Karen, said to go to the Trasy Diva on Magazine Street. She was not wrong. I LOVED this store. They sell “vintage inspired clothes with a modern sensibility” according to their web site. I really liked this dress (it has pockets), but didn’t buy it because #1 I have another fairly new black dress that is similar, and #2 the dress was over a hundred dollars and I am mostly unemployed. I picked up a white beaded bracelet for around $10.
I also found a shop called Up/Unique Products with interesting wares made from recycled materials.
This place was neat – Spruce.
Funky modern table lamp.
Next stop…Source Interiors and Art
This shade of blue is appealing to me.
Thought this carved chair from Peranesi was beautiful. Chatted up the very kind store owner who said Nicole Kidman had been there earlier in the day and bought a decorative pillow. Yes, that’s right. Nicole and I shop at the same store (although she could actually buy something!). But that’s okay, I love to just look.
And those were some of the highlights of shopping in New Orleans.
If you missed it, here is New Orleans Getaway – Part I.
Next up is the final installment of the New Orleans Getaway and should be prefaced with a disclaimer for my children (should they ever read this).
And that is …do as I say, not as I do!
