Back. Happy, relaxed, satisfied, maybe a little bit tired. I love New Orleans so much. I want to do a full run-down of the trip, but that might be a little much for my brain to handle right now. Here's a snippet instead: this was my outfit for dinner at Brigsten's. It was very delicious and certainly did not disappoint.  The highlights of the meal were my Gratin of Oysters & Artichokes with Lemon Parmesan Sauce and K's Rabbit Tenderloin with Andouille Parmesan Grits Cake, Spinach, & Creole Mustard Sauce.  Both very decadent, but that's New Orleans, no?

Gorgeous dress... I particularly love the back detailing! And you're right about the purse resembling a sporran, but then again Mr. Kane's Scottish so that wouldn't really surprise me ;-) I've always wanted to visit Nola but never had the chance yet. It's definitely on my list though!

HiFashion said...

I really love the darkening sky in the last picture. It contrasts really well with the vibrancy of your red dress.
Also, I love that you bring style and color to the otherwise colorless DC work attire!

It's so funny that you're posting this right now. I'm currently obsessed with all things red; thus, I'm coveting this dress. The The tiny tie-waist detail and ruching about the chest are just heavenly. Love this...you are so the lady in red right now! :)
