We are exciting to be participating in the 2016 Inaugural Pink Bra Run/Walk 5K , a benefit for Krewe de Pink that supports the local Tulane Cancer Center and on the national scene, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Starting in Historic Algiers Point on the Mississippi River levee across from the Old Point Bar, the Pink Bra Run is a 5K that will offer some of the most beautiful scenes of the New Orleans skyline and the Crescent City Connection.

Yoga mat as a skirt? Recycled Fashion Show turns everyday items into wearable art

By Sue Strachan, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune on February 22, 2016 at 7:32 AM

While some people may see just a shower curtain, bean-bag chair or yoga mat, others recognize the potential to take the ordinary and make it into something unique.  Thirty-three designers did just that for the seventh annual  Bridge House/Grace House Recycled Fashion Show, presented by Entergy, Sunday (Feb. 21) at Rock ‘n’ Bowl.

A coat became dress, skirt into dress, and a yoga mat molded as a skirt, while part of a bean-bag chair was converted into knapsack, sweaters reconstructed, and shower curtains revamped as both a cape and shirt. No corner of the Bridge House Thrift Shop was left untouched by designers Thayer Abigael, Sonya Adams and Sloan Duet, C. Blue Apffel, Vincent Avila, Dawn Bagala, Danielle Brumbaugh, Colleen Cure, Jaelynn Daigrepont, Jann Darsie, Kathryn Fisher, Callie Habrun, Erin Haindle, Darlene Hargreaves, Dena Hebert, Maureen Iverson, Laurie Jones, Gillian Knight and Lee White, Suzy Lake, Maureen Iverson, Carlisa Pridgen, Alisha Rockweiler, Arlene Rome, Shar Kiltz, Barbara Meehan, Jo Ann Minor, Tiffany Truxillo, Ann-Marie Turgeon, Lennie Unbehagen, Deja Weathers, Alana Wood, and Gabrielle Wood.

Their looks — designers could show two — were showcased by models varying ages, who strode down the red carpet runway accompanied by commentary from emcees Lauren “Fleurty Girl” LeBlanc and Andrew Ward. Other diversions at the event included a performance from the Rolling Elvi Jailhouse Rockers, and the Pussyfooters helped with the silent auction and raffle for a trip to Navarre Beach, Fla.

Proceeds benefit Bridge House/Grace House, which provides long-term residential, gender specific treatment to men and women who are dependent on alcohol or drugs.


mardi_paws_2016Join us Sunday, Valentine’s Day for the Mystic Krewe of Mardi Paws annual parade. The parade theme will be “Mardi Gras 2016: Love is in the Hair.” As usual, doggies are expected to wag tails and dispense kisses while their owners toss Mardi Gras trinkets, including signature dog-themed throws, beads, plush toys, and doubloons. As usual, the foot-and-paw march along the Mandeville Lakefront will happen several days after the close of the “official” Mardi Gras season.

Newlywed actors Ian Somerhalder (“Vampire Diaries”) and Nikki Reed (“Twilight”) have been announced as this year’s Celebrity Grand Monarchs of Mandeville’s Mardi Paws.
