Cheeky NOLA


I've missed New Orleans...

A decidedly whore-ish look in the Garden District

I spent Thanksgiving with Mark's family in New Orleans.  We were lucky enough to stay in a shotgun house in the middle of Magazine Street.  His brother Jacob and Jacob's friend Austin (collectively known as Turner Graff) also made the trip to NOLA.  We had so much fun spending time with two "cheeky" (to steal their term) 19-year-olds... it made me feel young and old at the same time.  I'm still coming to terms with turning 25!

On Mary: INRI Beanie by Supreme (it's Jacob's), Bodysuit by Maison Martin Margiela for H&M, Disco Pants by American Apparel / On Jacob: Heather Crewneck Sweatshirt by Supreme
It's become something of a New Orleans tradition for me to wear my Margiela bodysuit when I visit.  I'm not sure how anything can really be scandalous on Bourbon street, but I always manage to attract a shit-ton of attention when I'm wearing it.  I paired it with this Supreme INRI beanie, one of the plethora of Supreme items in Jacob's suitcase. 

Being in NOLA for Thanksgiving also meant being in NOLA for Black Friday.  Yay!!! Shopping!!!  We hit Canal and Decatur streets that morning and I got to check out some more Isabel Marant pour H&M at the brand new H&M in the French Quarter.  We got kind of caught up shopping and almost missed our lunch reservation at Commander's Palace, which would have sucked because the food was phenomenal.  Seriously, lunch was on-point and the martinis were 25 cents apiece... I was in heaven!

And Magazine Street was so pretty and fun at night!  We could walk to all of the amazing vintage shops and then stop at Sucre for some French macarons and gelato :)

We had the best Thanksgiving in New Orleans!!!
