Fleurty Girl: For all your New Orleans Fleur de Lis Needs!
The Fleurty Girl has become a Facebook phenom, starting out with cool t-shirts with local New Orleans flair, and has since branched out into locally-crafted jewelry, local-artist books, Saints swag, etc. The flagship store on Oak Street is an awesome shotgun house renovated to be a store – going inside is alone worth the stop!
Since Hurricane Katrina, the fleur de lis has become the symbol of solidarity and resiliance for the people of New Orleans. For those of us who have relocated since then, the items which bring back a taste and memory of the city we love are touchstones to the people we are and the life we left behind.
Lauren (the owner) was there that day, and recommended I visit the larger store on Magazine Street, as they have more accessories. Next time I visit NOLA, I am so there!
