Magazine Street is one of New Orleans’ premier shopping and entertainment districts — is an unparalleled collection of neighborhoods with a diverse array of businesses, shops, restaurants and hot spots. It’s where people live, work, play and enjoy the good life that New Orleans has to offer. In short, … it’s the Place to be in New Orleans.

When it comes to shopping in New Orleans, there is no place like Magazine Street.  Along this famed six-mile-long stretch of antique stores, art galleries, you will find little Indie boutiques with great clothing!

One of the joys of shopping on Magazine Street is finding so many good boutiques. While businesses come and go, Ah-ha has remained a “miracle mile” staple on the corner of Magazine and Ninth St. for years now.

Owned by daughters of the Rubenstein family, Ah-Ha does no advertising. That’s right – no tweets, no Facebook updates, no website – a real rarity for sure in the digital and social media age. Instead, they rely on word of mouth and their stellar location to drive business to the boutique. I know what you’re thinking “She did say NO website right? Surely they have a great big marketing secret?” But there’s no secret. Ah-ha has some of the best window displays on Magazine Street. read more about Ah-ha here.


Hemlines, is another amazing shop on magazine street, in NOLA.

Hemline Magazine Street incorporates a mix of styles, ranging from funky and fun to dressy conservative, catering to customers of all ages and their unique fashion desires.  For the more traditional customer, clothing from designers Diane Von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore, Trina Turk, and Nicole Miller, line the store’s long corridor of exposed brick walls.  Customers looking to add a little flair to their wardrobe can snatch up cute affordable pieces from Free People, Karlie, Fumblin’ Foe, MM Couture, Splendid and KLD.  Eye-catching purses, belts, scarves, and jewelry adorn the shelves and displays throughout and a wide selection of denim and shoes is offered to ensure a completed look.

In September 2009, the store was expanded to include a brand new back room, allowing more space for merchandise as well as great sales. An unsurpassed selection of merchandise and excellent customer service make Hemline Magazine Street a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. For more about hemlines, click here

One of my favorite shops was Frock Candy, if I was a bit skinnier, lol I would have totally bought the Entire store. Breanna (my best friend) and I spent hours in there! Cheap, Chic and alot of Black and Gold (i’m guessing it comes with the territory.

Last but definitely not least, I found this cute little shop called Shoe Box. It mainly holds an array of amazing shoes, but the owner works with Indie designers to bring fabulous one of a kind clothing there..
