Love, New Orleans Style

First of all I have to say up front that to me, Valentine's Day seems like a commercial add-on, an afterthought, and well, sorta vapid.

However, I am a romantic and I have no problem whatsoever celebrating love.

And since all eyes are on New Orleans for le Superbowl, and it's quite possibly the most romantic city in these United States, I decided to do a V-day roundup of pretty things from a few of my favorite shops there. They follow below:

Clockwise from top: Shoulder dusters from Pied Nu; love note-worthy cards from Scriptura; gold, checkerboard candles from Perch that burn for a whopping eleven hours (just sayin'); a trousseau-worthy bit from Leontine Linens; and a custom scent from Hove Parfumeur
