    Garden Party

    Some say you should wear a hat, while others insist on teeny, tiny sandwiches. But as far as we’re concerned, the only thing you need to throw a garden party is an outdoor space, and a few gals willing to don floral silks and sip on fruity drinks. This isn’t mission impossible.

    Donut Friend

    Donuts are part of the lexicon of American culture. They are comfort food, decadence, and unadulterated goodness, all rolled into one -sometimes goopy - mess. I remember my early days with the donut;me and my little brother bickering in back of our hippie mom’s BMW over who got what in the half dozen she picked up en route to school.Those donut escapades often landed us on car wash duty because,after our powdered sugar fights, it looked like Scarface fell off the wagon in our backseat.

    Spontaneity Of Summer

    Before the nights cool and the leaves cascade into vibrant puddles on the lawn, squeeze out the last moments of summer memories. Barefoot walks, night swims, and sudden warm rain that drenches our clothes and our pretense—these are our favorite treasures which fade away with fall. When you think about it, it’s really the spontaneity of summer which captures our hearts most. Since we haven’t been able to bottle that at PRESERVE, we bring you the gems which remind us of the moments of the sunny season we treasure.

    Peek-a-Bold

    Through my years on the fashion merry go round I discovered something that surprised me— if you really want to hide, go bold. I’m actually a very shy person at heart. Someone who was more comfortable hiding behind my mom’s skirt than twirling in the center of the ring. Yet, somehow, I chose the most public of lives.  Suddenly I was twirling, and it felt so unnatural.

    After Dark Delights

    The sun has set on the day's gluttony. These aren'tKnights, Squires, Lords or Ladies anymore. Formality has given way to a kind of shiftless, finger-licking, semi-(food)stoned euphoria -- interrupted by the melody of burps, giggles and sighs. There's room enough in these gullets for something sweet though. Damnit, we will carry on. We. Will. Carry. On.

    When you live in New Orleans, everything you do, from the food you eat to the way you speak, is an expression of the place you inhabit. “Everybody here has a visceral relationship with the city,” says Phillipe LaMancusa, proprietor of Kitchen Witch, a vintage cookbook shop on Toulouse Street. “It comes from the gut.”
