With Fashion Week New Orleans just around the corner, we’ve had our hands full prepping to bring you a great show! We have a great lineup of designers and retailers, a Style Lounge for those itching to get their hands on gorgeous fashions ASAP, and even a Bourbon and Bowties section for the fashionable men in our lives. Not to mention our Bridal Runway Show and Retail Therapy shopping event! Phew! That’s a lot of fashion!
When planning your look, be strategic in what you carry because no one wants to haul around a heavy purse while balancing in sky-high heels.
1. Bring a purse that’s roomy, but not bulky. Something not too heavy but not too small because you’ll need a place to stash all your great Style Lounge finds! And, we swear by a shoulder strap to always keep our hands free.

2. A battery-packed phone case! Be prepared for a LOT of instagramming, tweeting, and tagging! Our rechargeable phone cases save our social media lives daily and are definitely a Fashion Week DO!
3. An emergency make up kit because the bright lights and flashbulbs will take a toll on your makeup. Bring a few necessities: powder, blush, and lipstick to keep your face looking fresh for all those photo ops! Magnolia Makeup will even be doing their glamorous glitter lips in the Style Lounge!

4. A sturdy heel. All the glamazons will be wearing sky-high heels, but make sure to pick the right one! Look for a platform with a sturdy heel to take you from one red carpet to the next!
