The Big Easy

I always knew that New Orleans had some amazing history, good music and fried food, but nothing could've prepared me for the experience I had this last weekend traveling to the Big Easy with my husband and two of our closest friends. The entire city has this very mystical vibration, and the FOOD, oh. my. god. I enthusiastically gained 5 pounds :)
But the biggest surprise to me was the inspiration that I would get from this beautiful city. The vibrant colors, detailing and patterns that are naturally ingrained definitely get me in the mood to start sketching Fall 12' this week. I dreamt of colbalt blue and brocade last night...
Have you ever been to NOLA? How was your experience?


  1. I've never been but have always wanted to go. It may be my next trip. In the Climate Change class I taught, I learned that 98% of the city is guaranteed to be underwater as sea levels rise. Not if. WHEN. Breaks my heart. I can't wait to see how this city inspires your Fall 2012 collection!

  2. Never been.... It's def. on my "list", tho.
    And the mention of cobalt blue and brocade has me REALLY excited for your Fall 12 Collection!!!
