y the time this goes to press, we’ll be solidly entrenched in Lent, but right now, it’s a soggy, somber Ash Wednesday morning. Many New Orleanians are sleeping, picking gold leaf out of their eyebrows or waiting for the photos of yesterday’s festivities to surface. It’s a time for penitence, but also a time to process the sequin-andbrass-soaked delirium of the last few days by swapping stories: the funniest costume, the most heart-stopping percussion team, every parade we enjoyed and every parade we wished we’d had time to witness. More celebration unfolds across southern Louisiana during Mardi Gras than any one person could process in a lifetime. And in a similar vein, so much history is preserved in the alluvial earth over which we parade that one mind can’t grasp it. “There are stories that don’t get told by official history,” says University of Chicago professor Dr. Shannon Dawdy, an anthropologist who recently led an archeological dig in St. Anthony’s Garden behind the St. Louis Cathedral. She calls the garden “the most historically rich site in Louisiana,” and her team’s findings revealed forgotten (or never

written) lore about our past. (See page 37 for the full story.) “New Orleans is a very good storyteller,” Dawdy says. And a gorgeously, almost overwhelmingly prolific one at that.

Sweet Summertime! Time to pull on your favorite jeans, a rockin’ tee, some cute flats and go! We are totally in love with our newest addition here at Lola, Chaser Tees. We were instantly enamored with the soft fabrics that have that “Iʼve been worn for thirty years” feel, the incredible vintage graphics, and how both are mixed into new body styles that make this line “SO RIGHT NOW.” After scooping up my own Journey Dolman Tee and grabbing the “Addicted to Love” Sweatshirt Tee, I am completely hooked! I have worn each of them no less than ten times and they look even better with wear! We will be featuring new Chaser styles and prints in our fashion show on March 16th at the Sugar Mill for Fashion Week New Orleans. Coming soon to Lola Boutique: Nirvana, Journey, The Eagles, The Beastie Boys, Addicted to Love destroyed Tee, Chaser Basics and blanks, and much much more! What better denim to pair with a Rock & Roll inspired tee other than Rock Revival? This denim line was created in 2005 and is based out of Los Angeles, California and with a tagline like. “Rock Revival; providing an elegant take on a rebellious style.” Is there any doubt? Mixing Rock & Roll culture with unique signature details such as a reverse fleur de lis back pocket design and side seam accents, Rock Revival is the perfect addition to any girlʼs denim collection. I personally like the flap pocket style from this line. I will be wearing the lighter wash Christina Boot with the leather fleur de lis on the pocket this summer with my Chaser tees and Havaianas.

WATER FEATURES INFUSE COURTYARDS, BALCONIES AND BACKYARDS WITH VITALITY.

W

armer weather is luring us outside, and the backyard is a perfect (and pocketbook-friendly) place to entertain. Whether you have a tiny patio or a vast, verdant paradise, a water feature can be a creative and efficient way to infuse life — literally and figuratively — into any outdoor occasion. Tucker Bantom, manager of Perino’s Garden Center (3100 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, 834-7888; www.perinos.com), recommends fountains as the quickest, most cost-efficient way to incorporate water into the landscape, particularly for customers with small yards. “Many people, like those in the Quarter, are working in a limited area,” Bantom says. “Fountains come in a variety of

sizes, you can move them around, and nowadays they’re made to appeal to all different kinds of tastes.” Even people who live in apartments or condos can put colorful ceramic bowl fountains in their balconies or courtyards. These fountains start at around $150 and rise in price depending on the size and glaze of the bowl. Water features also can fit into a variety of budgets, as they can cost as little as $100 or as much as several thousand dollars, depending on the project. “A very small, 3-foot water garden with a pump and some plants should cost less than $150,” says Rich Sacher, co-owner of American Aquatic Gardens (621 Elysian Fields Ave., 944-0410; www.americanaquaticgardens.com).

B U I LT I N S T Y L E als and install the ponds themselves, costs are even lower. “The materials are inexpensive — the liner is $1 per square foot, and it lasts 20 years. You can buy a little pump for $30 to circulate water,” Sacher says. While pond installation might seem like an option reserved exclusively for serious landscape designers, it’s a task that is nearly as easy as purchasing a fountain. “Ponds can be pretty simple. You just dig a hole the shape and size you want, roll out a flexible rubber liner and fill it with water,” Sacher says. Prefabricated boxes built from treated lumber or fiberglass make installation of above-ground ponds equally achievable for do-it-yourselfers. However, some water features, like the mystery or “disappearing” fountains, are more elaborate. The fountain’s buried reservoir is covered with gravel and a screen and sits beneath a sculpture or pot. Mystery fountains are a strong trend among Bantom’s and Sacher’s customers, providing the aesthetic punch of a water feature while being ideal for families concerned about having open water in the yard where children play, Sacher says. Once the pond has been filled, good filtration is essential. Smaller ponds may need only a mechanical

filter system, like a decorative one that funnels water and keeps it moving, Bantom says, but a larger pond needs a whole aquatic plant ecosystem. Sacher and Bantom agree that getting just the right amount of sunlight is key. Too much sun leads to a proliferation of “bad” algae, and too little limits the growth of beneficial plants. It’s best to select a spot where the pond will receive five to six hours of direct sunlight a day. These also are ideal conditions for decorative plants like water lilies and water hawthorn. It’s relatively easy to maintain ponds and fountains. Fountains should run continuously with an occasional flush of fresh water. Mild New Orleans winters make freezing a rare problem. For ponds, Sacher recommends fertilizing the soil once a month to stimulate plant growth and adding water with a hose for about 15 minutes a week if the water level gets low. He suggests households with water-loving canines consider building a smaller pond in a separate corner of the yard and training the dog to wallow there. “So long as they have somewhere sanctioned for play, most dogs are happy,” Sacher says. Backyard ponds are also ecofriendly ways to jazz up the land-

scape. No harsh chemicals are used in the water, so fountains regularly attract birds, and ponds form the foundation for thriving ecosystems of plants, frogs, toads and insects. “Where your pond is, you don’t have to worry about fertilizing or mowing your lawn,” Sacher says. “It’s really more thrifty and environmentally friendly than grass.” Mosquitoes don’t stand a chance against

resident dragonflies, and the constant flow of fountain water prohibits mosquitoes from landing and laying eggs. Ultimately, this infusion of flora and fauna into a manicured backyard setting is one of the biggest benefits of a water feature. “Without the sound and presence of water, it’s just a landscape,” Sacher says. “That trickling is what brings your landscape to life.”

the grid layout is a “microcosm” of the french quarter’s structure, says alfred lemmon of the historic new orleans collection.

roots of the the restoration of st. anthony’s garden will make it a public park once again — and has yielded surprising evidence about new orleans’ history. by missy wilkinson

of New Orleans. Closed to the public since Katrina felled several of its oak, sycamore and magnolia trees, the garden has served as everything from a trading post to a shelter for the poor following the 1788 fires over the course of its 290-year history. In 2008, Lemmon and Crosby received grants from the Getty Foundation’s Fund for New Orleans and the Catholic Heritage Foundation to restore and reopen the garden. The Getty Foundation grant stipulated that an archeological excavation be done on the site, “to prevent the new landscape from damaging archeological sites and to inform the restoration,” Dawdy says. She and her team from the University of Chicago came down during the summers of 2008 and 2009 for an excavation that ended up being much more groundbreaking than she had anticipated. “We designed our research to identify the plants used during those times,” Dawdy says. “But, as in the best archeology, the best things you find are often unexpected.” Because a garden had covered the land for centuries, the artifacts underneath were “beautifully preserved,” Kern says. The excavation yielded more than 32,000 artifacts — the highest concentration of any known site in New Orleans — as well as an entire banquette, street surface and ditch. Pottery, pipes, coins and toys reveal the land’s past as a “people’s park,” Kern says. A simple wooden hut is the oldest structure ever identified in New Orleans, and its melding of Native American architectural techniques (palmetto thatch walls) and European ones (squared posts) hints at a cultural collaboration that exceeds what was documented in history books. “Native Americans were there for the construction of New Orleans,” Dawdy says. “My impression is that they helped build it, because there is heavy evidence of their presence. (The hut) is quite possibly a hybrid architectural form between Native American and European techniques, and possibly African as well.” The garden’s history will also inform its restoration. French landscape designer Louis Benech, who specializes in historic rehabilitation of gardens and has designed and restored more than 150 gardens in 18 countries, including the Tuileries Gardens in France, intends with his design to “pay tribute to all aspects of St. Anthony’s Garden’s exceptional history (by) consider(ing) all periods as significant.” “He is incorporating all elements of the city’s history,” Lemmon says. “It is not a recreation. It is a garden that reflects the history of the city.” By collaborating with historical botanists, Benech found records of the plants that were exported to France from Louisiana during the 18th century, which include pecan trees, magnolia trees, olive trees, red cedars and wax myrtles. The restored garden’s flora will reflect this heritage of botanical exchange, and its design mimics the grid French military engineers drew up for the French Quarter. “How many people today realize that (St. Anthony’s Garden) was the campsite of the

past T

he space occupied by St. Anthony’s Garden, the area behind St. Louis Cathedral bordered by Royal Street and Pirate’s Alley, is not much to look at right now. Thousands of pedestrians pass it without a second glance — its locked gates barricade a field of recently laid sod, cracked brick sidewalks and a statue of Jesus whose thumb and index finger broke off during Hurricane Katrina. Very little in the garden’s current appearance hints at its storied past or bright future. “(The St. Anthony’s Garden) is the most historically rich site in Louisiana,” says anthropologist Shannon Dawdy, who received a MacArthur Fellowship partly because of her archeological excavation of the garden. “It has been the very center of the city’s history since the earliest days of the colony,” says Alfred Lemmon, director of the Williams Research Center at the Historic New Orleans Collection. “To have a green space in the middle of a very dense urban area could help tourists and locals alike understand the history of the city.” To that end, Lemmon and Monsignor Crosby Kern, rector of St. Louis Cathedral, have spearheaded a project to restore and return the garden to its original function: a gathering place for the people

earliest founders of the city? How many people realize we found paved street, sidewalks and remains of houses under there?” Lemmon says. “The French Quarter has such an incredibly rich history on so many levels that I think this is sort of a microcosm or a representation of all those diverse elements.” To bring this rich, living history to the masses, garden restoration committee head Sarah Dunbar is working to secure a perpetual maintenance trust. “Gardens need to be maintained. If not, they die, waste or become jungles,” she says. “So you really need to endow it, because then you have the people to maintain it.” The endowment of $1 million will be administered by a New Orleans-area bank, she says. A patron party in the garden is slated for April 21, 2012. “If we can raise the money, it will be open to the public,” says Wendy Rodrigue, who co-owns the neighboring Rodrigue Gallery with her husband, artist George Rodrigue. “To make that

green space beautiful and keep it in the spirit which was originally intended is the best thing we can do for it.” In the wake of Katrina and the BP oil disaster, the re-addition of a public green space to the French Quarter (particularly one that has served as a shelter and a memorial following disasters like fires and yellow fever epidemics, respectively) has special resonance for locals. “It is a testimony to the survival of the city,” Lemmon says. “There is so much need for green spaces in order to care for the environment. To create a wonderful green space would be a big statement on some of the challenges or opportunities we have for the future.” For more information, email Stephen Swain at stephenswain@bellsouth.net.

Japanese-style manicures like this one last two to three weeks.

MANICURE Budget-conscious nail art fans can do this simple home manicure by matching nail polish and glitter colors. Gandy recommends Girlactic Glitter, a fine glitter that easily adheres to nails. “I like to stick to color combinations like gold (polish) and gold (glitter), or white (polish) and opal (glitter),” Gandy says. “Red (polish) and red (glitter) make your fingers look like ruby slippers. They are gorgeous.” 1. Clean your nails and swab them with alcohol to remove oils.

2. Lightly buff the nails with a nail buffer. Apply a base coat and follow with two coats of color. 3. Decide how sparkly you want to be. If you want as much sparkle as possible, dip your nail directly into a pot of Girlactic Glitter. If you want a light sparkle, drizzle glitter over the nails. 4. Apply a top coat to make the manicure last longer, or skip it for a more intensely glittery, but shorter-lived (two to three days), look.

air, face and nails — cosmetic enhancements to these features compose the holy trinity of feminine artifice. With custom wig services and a glam makeup inventory, Fifi Mahony’s (934 Royal St., 525-4343; www.fifimahonys.com) has covered the first two bases since opening in 1997, and now is poised to venture into the realm of manicures — but not just any manicures. With an arsenal of nail accessories ranging from seahorse decals and colored crystals to tiny fruits and glitter, nail technician Jamie Gandy makes even a pinky nail a canvas for threedimensional art. “It’s all based on the Japanese word for ‘cute,’ which is ‘kawaii,’ and it’s a movement in nail art,” Gandy says of the Japanese-style manicures. “We adhere crystals and stones and baubles to your nails.” As I type, 16 blue crystals coruscate from my fingertips. There’s a coral reef and a pensive flounder on my middle fingernail and a starfish on my pinky. Although Gandy warned me to go easy on the manicure, after five days, the crystals are intact, even through dishwashing and bathtub-scrubbing. The manicures last two to three weeks, Gandy says. The nail studio will open in April, and prices range from $25 for a basic manicure (no baubles) to $75 an hour for the Japanesestyle manicures. Crystals are 50 cents each.

hen Dr. Meredith Grembowicz’s daughter developed eczema and secondary skin infections that persisted even after she used several creams, lotions and anti-inflammatory medications, Grembowicz took matters into her own hands. A fellow doctor recommended sea salts as a treatment option, and Grembowicz set out to find all-natural, fragrance-free sea salts to heal and hydrate her daughter’s skin. Grembowicz now markets the product that helped her daughter’s skin the most as Dr. G’s Sea Salts (www.drgsaltbath.com), which consist of 100 percent Dead Sea salts. Dissolve two cups in a hot bath for relief of psoriasis, eczema and dry skin symptoms — or to ease aching muscles. The salts retail for $14.95 at 16 area drugstores, including Walgreens, in the greater New Orleans area (for a complete list, visit www.drgsaltbath.com/locations), and a portion of proceeds benefits the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Relief Fund. — Missy Wilkinson

lance at the nubby hornback leather that composes a Cocodri (www.cocodri.com) clutch, and it’s easy to imagine its former life as an alligator swimming through Louisiana marshes. According to Katie Tutwiler, co-owner of the Lafayette business that sells alligator skin belts, wallets and clutches handmade by local artisans, playing up the natural appearance of the alligator hide is consistent with her company’s ethos. “We wanted to build products that reflect the source from which they came,” says Tutwiler, who co-owns the business with her mother, Mary Tutwiler. “It’s not just leather, it’s not just a thing — it comes from a real animal. A lot of designers lose that connection to nature. We think we maintain the aura of the animal.” Crafted from local alligator skins, the pieces are beautiful and durable. Tutwiler says a clutch could last a decade or more. By selling long-lasting heirloom pieces manufactured locally, Tutwiler hopes to support Louisiana’s economic growth and position in the fashion market. “We are all about being a Louisiana company and supporting other Louisiana companies, such as the trappers and manufacturers,” she says. — Wilkinson Cocodri pieces range in price from $105 for an eelskin cuff (pictured right) to $1,664 for an alligator clutch and are available at Style Lab for Men (3326 Magazine St., 304-5072; www. stylelabformen.com) and Ralph Goodyear Ltd.

n an Old Metairie Village lingerie shop amid an assortment of delicate undergarments and pajamas, a black pug with a ferocious underbite gazes intently out the window at passersby. She’s not as fierce as she looks, however. “We just say she’s smiling,” owner Ericka Frey says. Named after the character from the television sitcom The Jeffersons, Weezie is employed by Second Skin Intimate Apparel (701 Metairie Road, Metairie, 322-2931). Frey received Weezie as a birthday gift from her husband when Weezie was about 7 weeks old. Now approaching 10 years old, gray-muzzled Weezie shows no signs of retiring from her job, though her arthritis has slowed her down a little. “We call her a little maw-maw,” Frey says. “In the morning, if she isn’t ready to get up, she doesn’t get up.” When she’s feeling social, Weezie greets customers and sometimes even provides assistance in the dressing rooms. Frequent breaks in her cozy pink bed keep Weezie on her game during busy workdays, and she loves soaking up the sun when nice weather permits Frey to leave the shop’s front door open. Weezie enjoys her breakfast, lunch and dinner, too. “She eats whatever we eat, from tomatoes to Skittles,” Frey says. “She’ll even eat salad — not many dogs eat salad — but she doesn’t eat the mushrooms.” A healthy meal like salad calls for a tasty dessert. Weezie’s favorites include ice cream and yogurt. “She’ll walk around with that yogurt cup in her

mouth until she gets every last drop from inside,” Frey says. After a full day of handling customers, Weezie recognizes the distinct sound of quitting time. As soon as Frey finishes her end-of-day routine, Weezie perks up and readies herself for the ride home. “When I settle the credit cards, she knows what time it is,” Frey says. Once home, Weezie relaxes with her favorite toy, a stuffed owl inherited from Hootie, her late older sister. When not at the store with Ericka, Weezie is a Daddy’s girl. “She’s a little traitor,” Frey says. “She’s with me all day, and she wants to be by her dad (my husband) when we get home.” Weezie will sometimes request a day off from Second Skin for a change of pace, spending the day with her “dad.” Frey opened Second Skin in May 2009 to give women access to a wide range of lingerie lines including Betsey Johnson, Le Mystere, OnGossamer and Elle MacPherson. “Every woman needs (her) intimates,” Frey says. “All the bras are basic boutique lines, and the quality speaks for itself. Whether you buy a $30 bra or an $80 bra, they are all good quality items.” With spring fast approaching, new pajama collections are arriving in the store. Along with breezy fabrics and fun prints, the warm weather may also usher in many more open-door days when Weezie will bask in the sunlight. “She loves open door day,” Frey say. “She just will sit right there.” A P RIL .2 0 1 1 <<<
