On May 18 the St. Tammany Art Association (STAA) will host their 4th Annual Seersucker and Sazeracs event at the Southern Hotel in Covington. Seersucker and Sazeracs is one of the largest fundraisers that STAA hosts and helps to raise funds to provide quality programming and cultural enrichment to our local community. Each year STAA offers free exhibitions, six different art markets and events like Spring and Fall for Art.
This event held at the beautiful Southern Hotel’s Camellia Ballroom is an evening to remember. Guests will be treated to the musical stylings of the NOLA Jitterbugs as well as an array of items to bid on in the silent auction. Food and Drink will be provided by the New Orleans made famous Sazerac and hors d’oeuvres will be served from several of the Northshore’s finest restaurants. The event will run from 7 to 10 but make sure you book a late babysitter because I am sure everyone will gather in the Cypress Bar after for a nightcap.
So are you wondering what does one wear to a festive affair like this? Let me tell you when, and where, you should shop to find an outfit fitting of this seersucker inspired spring time event.
Paix A Vous // 1901 HWY 190 // 985-231-7847
This shop is your go to place for upscale, contemporary fashion. The most interesting thing about Paix A Vous is that it is a one stop shop. Not only will you find the dress or outfit you are looking for but they carry an entire line of Virtue Luxe pieces for all of your accessory needs. You will walk out with everything you need for the perfect evening.
Mackenzie and Me // 70488 HWY 21 STE 700 // 985-888-1588
This shop is your place for fun and festive attire. Mackenzie is your shoe and earring girl. She has the right shoes to compliment your outfit and the best thing is most of them are ‘dance all night’ comfortable. She is also currently curating one of the cutest earring bars I have ever seen. If you are looking for a two piece set, jumpsuit or maxi this is the place to go.
Au Darling // 3523 HWY 190 // 985-624-4477
This boutique is the place to shop for funky and over the top fashion. Currently they are stocked with some of the cutest pants and skirt sets available locally. You do not want to miss out on owners Kylen’s styling abilities too. If you are looking for accessories to compliment the outfit you already have this would also be your go to location. You can walk out the door with shoes, a bag and a necklace!
Fleurty Girl // 2885 HWY 190 // 985-778-0341
Maybe not the most expected place to land on my list but they have curated some of the most precious seersucker and southern prints. I love the fact that they have really started branching out from just selling their famous New Orleans inspired t-shirts. Owner Lauren Haydel has an amazing eye for things that are fun and fashionably New Orleans which would be perfect for this event.
