Those of you with any kind of relationship to New Orleans are likely familiar with the French word lagniappe. It means “a little something extra”.  Lagniappe generally refers to a small gift which might be given to a customer in addition to a purchase e.g., you order a dozen beignets to-go in Cafe du Monde and they give you 13. What a fabulous concept!

Luxe Axcess works very hard to provide “lagniappe” when working with all our clients whether it be for goods or services. We want every outfit and every individual piece to have that little something extra that sets it apart and makes the client feel truly special wearing it.  Every item we show here has it’s own lagniappe.

This fantastic dress from Gucci has a special leather lagniappe.  The A-line dress in a graphic black and white wool jacquard is so refined with its Jackie O. retro vibe, but  the addition of a leather collar makes this dress so of-the-moment. The mix of  ladylike shape  and retro print with just a touch of edgy leather makes this dress perfect for work or dinner, heeled lace-up oxfords or strappy sandals, a cardigan or Gucci‘s matching coat!

We styled the dress with its luxe leather collar for the transition from work to dinner date by showing it with fantastic strappy sandals and Lissa‘s amazing pearl-in-cage pave diamond earrings. Etro‘s very ladylike bag in croc-patterned black calf  and a gorgeous wood bead and gold bracelet also by Lissa complete the outfit. The dress and accessories are more great wardrobe possibilities for transitioning into fall,  each with “a little something extra”!
