Juley Le, is a style icon. period. her style is impecable and to be admired by all and enjoy F.K.M.W.'s interview with her
Where are you from and describe the fashion scene?
I'm from New Orleans, Louisiana. The style here can be very easy and charming. Older society members wear typical southern attire - men in polos and khakis and women in feminine skirts. Lately, I've seen a lot of the younger kids get into the grungy, 90s hipster trend. It's not quite as diverse and adventurous as New York City but I like to think that we're holding our own given our lack of resources.

I love simply prepared, fresh dishes. The color blue is almost always on my radar.
