I'm a local of the french quarter and cannot say how much I enjoy this store. Even though I may leave empty handed at times, visiting the store is fun in itself. There are beautiful, handcrafted pieces that you dont see, even at saks. I saw this gorgeous crystal and silk dress originally something crazy like 11,000 for 2,000. Still too expensive for my pocketbook, but really, where else in the quarter can you look at a piece of clothing and say, ""Wow, now that is ART!"" And being a man, it is extremely hard to find well tailored, designer clothing at a decent price. I found Jil Sander pants for $150 and Botega Veneta blazer for $600 (which is cheap considering it originally retails for almost 4 thousand). Besides from looking at gorgeous one of a kind pieces, I got a Velvet brand polo for like $15 and some awesome vintage levis for $50. OH and about 5 LNA t-shirts for $10. If you are a local, or especially if you are visiting, stop by. It's a gem of the quarter. The sales people are cool, too. They totally love to talk and answer your questions. They always make me feel welcome and are comfortable enough to joke around with.
