Lauren LeBlanc, the boss behind the local Fleurty Girl retail empire, shows off her house in debatably cool Metairie on NOLA.com today. Take a look at the house built on so many T-shirts and fleur de lis tchotchkes.
The 3,600-square-foot home of the New Orleans enthusiast (who does not live in New Orleans) includes a swimming pool and back patio, several Louis Armstrong paintings, and a color-coordinated closet of every Fleurty Girl T-shirt. In the story, LeBlanc says at one point she and her kids were living in the back of the chain's Oak Street store, struggling to pay bills. This is quite an upgrade.
