Billy Reid's Shindig No. 4
in Florence, Alabama
I had to leave New Orleans for Birmingham, due to the hurricane, so this week will just be a teaser. But, at least for a day, Birmingham gets to be Parish Chic. So, tweet @parishchic if you know about any fashionable happenings in the area or just happen to be pretty dandy yourself!
Next week's column will have an interview with Billy Reid and a video of the designer answering Parish Chic's five fashion questions. Also, there will be photos of Alabama Shakes, Wild Cub, The Weeks, and the stylings of the guests at Shindig No. 4 in Florence, Alabama. Stay tuned for my return to New Orleans next week, where hopefully everyone will be safe and dry.

“We are researching new labor in America for moderate- to middle-income workers, whose situations and work environments are the same in Japan,” Ken Yamazaki said. He said community and grassroots labor unions that are interested in helping workers started here twenty years before Japan. So, the group is stateside to study various labor models during their nineteen day trip from Japan and will visit most major cities in America.
