Specializing in shoes, Ele Shoes & Accessories, founded by sisters Celeste Mikes and Adele Ralston in 2005, has it all…from dressy and casual to flats and high heels. In addition, Ele Shoes & Accessories carries bags, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets from national and local designers.
Alaina Fingal, Takisha Sanders, and Elizabeth Ellis opened the doors to Baggae Boutique this summer and offers full makeup and a small, but growing selection of clothing and a larger collection of amazing accessories and bags.
As Kourtney and Armande made their way through the three boutiques, a pattern certainly seemed to emerge: These two young ladies love fashion! Dresses and pants, skirts and shirts, accessories and bags…nothing was off limits. As a burgeoning star in the music industry, Kourtney Heart describes her personal style as “relaxed, innovative, and edgy. It’s relaxed because I am a very comfortable dresser, innovative because I like to re-create all the time, and edgy because I can just have fun with the look,” she explained. “I like loose, sheer shirts and bold colors. Also, leather is my new thing. I’ve been on this leather tip and can’t wait to try it out for the fall and winter. High heels and lashes are the last parts of my outfit. They make my alter ego come out!”
So check out what Kourtney and Armande put together from a day of shopping IntheNOLA:
Loose, comfortable, and vintage, yet chic Beatles t-shirt with a cream blazer to add a professional twist and leather leggings to add edginess.
Blue and gray clutch and burgundy heels completed the look.
Gorgeous green dress that compliments Kourtney’s figure as well as complexion very well. The orange belt shows off her narrow waistline and is a lovely pop of color.
Gold charm bracelet, earrings, and heels went hand-in-hand because they added a royal appearance to the look.
Edgy leather tights, black shirt, and a body chain for more design. The leather bootie heels are also perfect for this “boss” type look. Black clutch with gold studs goes well with the look as a whole without clashing with the gold body chain.
As you can see, Kourtney looks amazing! Thanks to all of the boutiques for taking a chance on fashion in New Orleans.
Like we said in the last Native’s Guide to Shopping, there’s no excuse to head to Metairie for Lakeside Mall when we got some great shopping right here in the city!
