               This past Friday began the seventh season of New Orleans Fashion Week! It kicked off with a runway show by one of my favorite designers; Lisa Iacono! This season she collaborated with Suzanne Perron to create their collection, ''Limousine''

'' Limousine, a line of gowns and evening wear, will make its debut in Fall 2014.  Designed by American couturier Suzanne Perron, and Perron’s prodigy, New Orleans-based Lisa Iacono, the line features classic silhouettes with fresh design elements.  The pieces were inspired by iconic, silver-screen beauties, starlets who could hold their own on set, and then light up the room at the after-party.  The emphasis here is timeless, wearable, show-stopping elegance–high-fashion design at a ready-to-wear price point.''- Nolafw.com

After reading that I just had to attend. Everything from the debut-line was unbelievably beautiful and it could not have been more elegant. I felt like I was watching a live-walk through of Grace Kelly's wardrobe! (I could totally have seen her wearing the white ball gown) 

The event was held at the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum, a very umm...interesting venue. (Kind of creepy, actually) My sister/photographer and I both came to the conclusion that there had to have been a horror-movie filmed there or something...we're such girls.

For my look, I decided to wear one of the dresses that I received from Charlotte Russe. It was a little on the short side for me (#tallgirlprobs) so I tucked it into this leopard print pencil skirt and presto! 

Stay tuned for my coverage of Day 3 of NOLAFW!
