the Jacket | Langford Market NOLA

Thursday, December 08, 2011

‎Grace Coddington, creative director at Vogue, once said that "fashion isn't just frocks. It's how we do our houses, our gardens - it's what we eat and drink."

And, if I may add to this Grace, it's also how and where we Travel.

It all meshes - fashion, home decor, food, travel - making for one big statement about who you are.

I was flattered to be one of a few bloggers in the City invited to a private event at Langford Market in the French Quarter, a hop from Cafe du Monde. The gracious ladies brought us in, indulged us with giant cupcakes & raspberry cocktails, and asked us to style their mannequins. Before the styling got under way, I thumbed through the racks of clothing with Mallory and caught up a spell with Ashley, two local bloggers I hadn't seen in a while. One thing I picked up on straight away about Langford Market was their selection of clutches and jackets, blazers, and cardigans. You've heard me rave about the necessity for a great blazer in my How to Pack Light post. Well, Langford Market has a bunch of options, in all styles, colors, and types of fabric from cotton to polyester to faux leather. And I haven't even mentioned the price point yet. $30-$70.

At the end of the night, we were allowed to take home one item from the store. Anything? Oh, decisions. Wound around my neck I had a faux fur scarf, over my shoulders I had this jacket. I gave myself a quick glance to see which one sang my praises.

I ended up choosing this blush colored 3/4 sleeve jacket in polyester. Say what you will about polyester, I adore the stuff. The jacket also comes in black and red, for $69.90. I think I've worn this jacket every other day since the event. Paired with jeans & a white tank, or over a long sleeve grey tissue tee and yoga pants, it does no wrong. And I get compliments on it wherever I go. I took these shots of it hanging in my closet, as I had randomly paired it with a bright fuchsia tank.

Color-blocking. And I only thought I wasn't following trends.
The evening was wonderful, very grateful to have been included with such company,
