Traipsing through the CBD - it wasn't a thing a long time ago. Unless you've been closing your eyes during your drives into the Quarter (not recommended), you've probably noticed very au courant shopping and nosh center has emerged in an area once considered "the empty lots we walk through very quickly to get to the Saints Game". Willa Jean is the heartbeat of this adorable little cluster.
Since we ain't open on no Sundays (winky winky!), take the opportunity to wander over to this little hub, whether or not you're on your way to see some football. We highly recommend our BFFs at Hattie Sparks for a little retail diversion while you're at it.
We at söpö wholeheartedly believe that carbs call for caftans. It's just a thing. Ilana Kohn's loop-de-loop printed Luca Caftan (right) is just the ticket for a cheeky take on the casual classic (whether or not you want to put the leftover biscuits in those extra-deep pockets, well, that's your business). Hide your transgressions from Saturday evening with local fave Krewe du Optic's 24K Gold Plated "Franklin" shades. Top off with one of our fringey viscose scarf-wraps in denim - it's basically a grown-up blankie, but, hey, accessorizing is accessorizing!
Leather sneakers give off the perfect "I threw this on but still look amazing" vibes; our buddies at Feet First still do it best, after all this time!
Happy Foodie Friday, NOLA! We're real glad to be back!
