A champion for earth-friendly lifestyles, Cloth Baby encourages diaper wranglers to reduce and reuse with an array of fashionable fabric alternatives to disposables. Boasting bright hues and charming patterns, the shop's tiny garb comes in one-size styles with adjustable snaps, adapting with infants throughout their diaper-donning stages—from about 8 to 35 pounds. Easily machine washed and dried, the variety of cloth pocket diapers ($8), breathable bamboo pocket diapers ($11), and colorful Happy Heinys ($18.95) save parents money over time. Cloth Baby also stocks leak-free diaper covers ($8), Rockin Green’s Classic Rock diaper laundry soap ($13.95), and 4-ounce jars of skin-soothing CJ’s BUTTer ($9). A wet/dry diaper bag jumps to action with sealed compartments ($6), good for separating pungent rabble-rousers from their freshly laundered pals.

Though Fifteen22 Boutique is housed in a historic homestead from the mid-18th century, its antique exterior belies its selection of contemporary designer apparel. Fluorescent lighting spills through floor-to-ceiling windows over the city’s Lower Garden District, where browsers are hard-pressed to find another women’s boutique that caters to the high-end sensibilities of modern professionals and party prowlers alike. Earning plaudits from both the fashion writers at Women's Wear Daily and the curators at InTheNOLA.com's "The Native's Guide to Shopping", the shop connects clients with pieces from leading brands including BCBG, MaxAzria, Ladakh, DL1961 Premium Denim, Blaque Label, and Blank NYC. This commitment to accessible style has also earned the shop recognition from the region's fashion elite; pieces from the boutique recently stalked the runway at New Orleans Fashion Week.
French children’s books. Rare, local cookbooks. Novels set in the muggy air of Louisiana. All of these tomes line the blonde wood shelves at Blue Cypress Books, home to a trove of more than 12,000 new and high-quality secondhand books. Gathered by the owner and chief bookkeeper, the store’s selection runs the gamut from New York Times bestselling paperbacks to antiquarian sets kept in slipcase in order to guard against spilling coffee or liquid nitrogen on their leather covers. The resident gray-and-white tabby cat, Kitty Meow, lounges amid browsers as they peek at the affordable prices penciled on the inside pages of an extensive youth collection.
Something always seems to be happening at Blue Cypress, too. Children's book readings captivate little ones, and author signings let guests hobnob with professional wordsmiths. The shop also hosts performances of local music as well as monthly book-club meetings, during which locals share favorite recipes for broiling mystery novels.
