I thought our readers might enjoy a peek into the closet of publicist and designer Tiffany Napper, whose New Orleans home was recently featured as a House Tour.

Tiffany is the owner and creative director of Bats on Strings, a public relations and marketing firm for musicians and creative artists, and the handbag line Flying Fox. I admire her aesthetic and the beautiful leather bags she designs, so I asked her to share some thoughts on fashion.
Your very favorite outfit: White Everlane silk top, Joe’s jeans, Flying Fox tote, Elliott Lucas black studded pumps.
The #1 item from your fashion wish list: I have been coveting a leather biker jacket from Billy Reid for quite some time, and one day I vowed to treat myself to a pair of Repettos. The Camille ballerina style with the little block heel – swoon-worthy!
The TV or movie character's wardrobe you'd steal in a minute:
Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She exuded confidence in everything she wore, from her infamous black Givenchy dresses to the jeans and grey sweater she wore when singing “Moon River.”
Your best bargain find ever: a beautiful pair of Miu Miu pumps found at UAL, a glorious consignment store in the French Quarter.
Three things from your closet you couldn't live without:
1. High heels
2. a leather crossbody bag that converts into a clutch
3. White T-shirts
The item you no longer have but wish you did: The many pairs of Levi jeans from my high school years. I used to collect them like candy!
Most fashionable friend and why: Olivia Hill. No matter what she’s wearing, she exudes what I like to call “French girl confidence.” She mixes vintage with designer in a way that is truly organic. I envy her so much that I made her my muse for my last Flying Fox photo shoot.
Your typical work “uniform”: I spend my days multi-tasking from one project to the next, so I usually wear a casual dress with open toe booties or strappy sandals, or jeans with a dressy blouse and pumps. I am always trying to strike that casual-meets-polished balance.
IRL shop: I love the intimate nature of small boutiques, like Hattie Sparks and Clover (both in New Orleans)
Online shop: Reformation, Madewell, and Need Supply
Makeup brand: Truth be told I’m a beauty junkie, so this is a long list: Marcelle, Dior, Givenchy, Bobbi Brown, Too Faced, Lipscape, L’Oreal, MAC Cosmetics…
Haircare brand: Davines in the shower, Living Proof out of the shower
Best jeans: Joe’s Jeans for stretchy, skinny jeans and Imogene + Willie for dark indigo, high-waisted jeans
Coolest sneakers: I’m really more of a sandals girl, but if I do wear sneakers, I like a pair of white Converse Jack Purcells
Signature scent: Eau de Cartier

Thank you, Tiffany!
