New Orleans

As soon as I heard that a blizzard was headed East, I packed my bags and boarded a plane to New Orleans for the weekend. I always love traveling and seeing how differently people dress and express themselves in other cities. I’ll be posting shots from trip over the next few days. The women I met all seemed to wholeheartedly embrace the creative culture of New Orleans. Many of them either made their own clothes or shopped from local designers. Michele, above, told me that she was wearing a skirt by Oliver Manhatten, a local designer who is on a mission to bring bustle skirts back!

  • What a suitable dress for biking!

  • Beautiful!

  • Wow, talk about Cycle Chic…

  • Oh my gawd! I love her look and how she just owns it!

  • beret is love

  • Olivier Manhatten – definitely a name to look out for if he is making skirts that fabulous!

  • Melanie

    I adore bustle skirts! She looks an absolute dream in that skirt 🙂 Please ask Olivier to sell them on-line for we overseas admirers, as I would love to ride my bike in one too!

  • She looks great and what a pretty skirt! Looking forward to seeing more pics from your trip to New Orleans!

  • Nice 🙂

  • Eli

    She has a pretty smile and looks great.

  • Simply lovely!! She looks happy and confident…and if a nouveau bustle skirt can do that for you, I say "why not?!"
