Magazine Street Style

My plan was to take pictures of some of the great shopping and eating spots on Magazine Street on a recent trip to the great city of New Orleans. That did not happen because for the first time in my last 5 trips to NOLA, it rained the whole time I was there. Magazine Street and rain do not mix. While I had planned to walk up the street I ended up driving and while I planned to hop in an out of shops and galleries I only hit a few because I was soaking wet by the time I got to the door. With that being said.......

Magazine Street is one of the great urban residential shopping streets/districts in the country. Unless you are familiar with NOLA, you probably aren't too terribly familiar with Magazine. Gallery after gallery, boutique after boutique, restaurant after restaurant....Magazine has style that you can only find in NOLA. Here are some of the hot spots that I recommend from my recent visit to the Big Easy.
