Seered Suckers: Pols Laud Louisiana's Linen
The Pelican State is famed her cultural exports such as cuisine and music, but our contributions to the greater zeitgeist also include fashion.

The Ogden Gets Sartorial With Sippin' in Seercucker
Horseracing season has completed and White Linen Night is still a couple of months away, but don't let the Southern finest catch too much dust yet. Tonight, the Ogden Museum of Art hosts Sippin in Seersucker at The Shops at Canal Place. Other than lightweight fashion and mint juleps, the event also features the musical stylings of the Preservation Hall Stars and, in order to test how accomodating those lightweight duds are for the body's many movements, DJ Soul Sister. Info about tickets and such are over at the Ogden's website.
