Everyone at The Revival Outpost has been bitten by the travel bug.

Whether it’s our Manager Ashley who is preparing for her trip to San Francisco, Alexis, our in store liaison, heading to Florida every other week, Boss Lady Christina who is contemplating a styling job in Asia, or me squeezing in time to camp throughout the South East United States, we all want to get out and wander!

There is something about traveling the unknown, exploring some new place, which in turn allows you to explore new parts of yourself.

In this world of constant updates, knowledge and technological lit spaces it’s nice to be surrounded by people who want to abandon the comfort of the couch and tour the world around them.

Style in Store

Often people come in to Revival and love what they’ve bought so much they wear it out. More often people come into Revival needing something funky to spice up their wardrobe.  But every so often customers come in looking like they walked right out of our store display window.

These fashionable shoppers came in to browse and buy looking eclectic, adventurous, edgy, hip, unique and just like the bad ass customers we love to dress!

It’s NOLA Fashion Week!

New Orleans is known for the music, we’re sought after for our food, people come down to experience the culture. But underneath the tourist must-haves there is unexpected talent in the fashion industry.  NOLA Fashion Week is a bi-annual event put on to support Southern based or born designers and help the fashion industry in New Orleans flourish. This Fall/Winter 2014 season is March 14-22nd.

The venues are always sick.

Iree Island Life Part 1

There’s nothing like epic cold weather to make you wish you were on an island. Our shop lady Erica spent 13 days in the West Indies. Here is her first installment on Caribbean fashion and how to get it here at The Revival Outpost.

Under three thousand people live in this city

Soufriere – Under three thousand people live in this city

“Sa ka fete?” What’s up, how’s it going? “Iree” Good, relaxing. St. Lucia is a small island just above Barbados. Small towns fill the valleys in between the mountainous island and create a down home, everyone knows you -your auntie-grandma-cousin- or neighbor-feel that us Southerns know only too well.

Inspiration is a funny thing; it can be hidden in the clouds or blatant in the streets. When you don’t have cars filling roads, Internet at your fingertips and material items blocking your view all you can see is the beauty in the details.

Water so blue

Local Beer

Local price for this lager is $1.60USD

The spirit of St. Lucia is much like other island cultures: Live easy, live simple, and live happy.

Even on an island, we women can’t be too over dressed. Working women on the island were conservatively stylish. Layers of light fabric draped over brown skin.  Colorful accent bows added to kinky cornrows. Three inch heels float over New Orleans esq cobble stone.

Lookbook: Three Floor Fashion

The lookbook for TF is literally all we’ve ever wanted in our lives and more.

ImageImage

The sharp lines and angles. The colors. The acid-dripped layering. The shadows.

It’s brilliant.

ImageImage

Not to mention genius. I love the aesthetic. It really captures and fits their brand perfectly.

Bravo, Three Floor Fashion, you’ve officially won us over.

Big Things: It’s 2014

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts through December and January!

We’ve been dusting off and cleaning up some things. We hosted an acoustic show with two sweet singing ladies and Uly! SUPER BIG: We’re adding lots of inventory to our website so you guys can shop anytime you want, anyplace that has wifi you desire.

We’ve been generally kicking ass and taking names with lots of different projects and working on a blog makeover. 

So, while all that is going on, let’s talk about some huge things that are happening.

1. Our girl Amanda is going to NEW FUCKING YORK FASHION WEEK.

4. This isn’t new news, but it’s big news. Louisiana ArtWorks building. This needs to happen, dudes.

artworkstile

There are some super secret plans in the works for the building that I don’t even know about yet. But, big things *cross your fingers* are to come for this building. *knock on wood* It would be a fantastic edition to the city and an open space for creatives to come together AND MAKE AWESOME SHIT HAPPEN.

5. We love bad bitches and we love bad bitches that can sing. Maggie Koerner released her new record “Neutral Ground” in November and it is still on repeat in my car. Click here to see her music video.

This lovely folk babe is killing it all over the place. She’s in Florida for a bit before moving through the rest of her tour until ending in March in San Fran! If you’re traveling, make sure you catch one.

At 7 p.m. on December 28, right here at The Revival Outpost, southern belles Elli Perry and our very own Ashley Monaghan will join forces for an amazing night of folk music, Christmas cookies, shopping and more!

Elli Perry is a musician from Georgia whose had quite the adventurous life traveling from city to city music-making and soul-searching. She moved to New Orleans where she produced her fourth album, The Salt & The Sea, and is returning to her southern second home on Dec. 20 to grace Revival with her vocal badassery.

Ashley Monaghan, our blogger, is currently living in Baton Rouge to attend LSU, but her body and soul are from New Orleans. She spent most of her elementary and high school years performing. From 2011-2013 she was the front lady for Bonnie&Clyde. Check out Monaghan’s recent musings here.

See you there.

Crop tops. Fitted sweaters.

Things that end at the natural waist are just better!

All bodies are different, so the look might not work for you (and that’s okay! #werk it, bitch!) but I cannot stop piling up my Christmas wishlist with these babes.

Image

They give me life.

Image

So crisp, so clean, so beautiful!

You don’t always have to show your tummy, either. Thank the heavens for bringing high-waisted-everything back.

And they fit basically any “look” you’re going for.

Sporty.
