New Orleans Goodies

I just got home from a vacation in New Orleans, and naturally snuck in a bit of shopping while there:

first, this clutch:

Not a great photo from the web site; much cuter in person. I've been wanting a snakeskin print clutch for a while and this is exactly what I had in mind. 
And these:

slightly blurry shot, but you get the idea. From one of my favorite French Quarter shops, Shoe Be Do, which is always on the shopping list when I'm in NOLA. And I've just damaged my other wood-platform-studded shoes, possibly beyond repair, so I was glad to find these.

And these:

plus this:

both from the French Market, which I usually avoid, because it's full of touristy tchotchkes. But my husband wanted some New Orleans tee shirts, and that's the best place to get 'em. I have been looking for sterling hoop earrings for a while, and a feather ring, so these both were satisfying purchases.

And I have to tell you how much I loved THIS:

I'd bought it about a week before the trip, and I actually ended up wearing it twice - it's a convertible maxi dress / skirt, though I'd only wear it as a skirt (there's no upper support whatsoever) - and it was wonderful. New Orleans is HOT HOT HOT and humid this time of year, and you want to be wearing light and comfortable clothes when you're out shopping. The skirt was perfect and I'm now on the hunt for more of these for the HOT HOT HOT and humid Georgia summers.  :)

Random Yummy Goodnes

Came across these this week; they're definitely for those who embrace color.   :)

Walter Steiger, still rockin' the 80s rainbow colors. I don't know how easy that comma heel is to actually wear, but I love the silhouette.

And these - practical and cute - came home with me today, from Dillard's.:

I'd tried to love these (below), but they just weren't right on my foot. So I'm glad to have happened across the Dillard's ones. I'm more of a flip-flop shoe girl anyway.  :)

Summer's's sandal time.  :)
