I live in Mobile, the birthplace of Mardi Gras, which means somewhere around November I start thinking about what I am going to wear to a Mardi Gras Ball. Last year was actually our first time attending one and it was a bit of a let down. This year my husband has JOINED an organization so we will be going to HIS ball. I am not sure if I can mention the name of it because they get all secret squirrely about that stuff, so I am going to err on the side of caution and not for now.
Last year my dress was this lovely little maroon gown and I hate that I wasted such a beautiful dress on such a boring time, but atleast I looked good.
(at the event…not my spouse)
When I was shopping I was really loving this number too, but it was SO long and I didn’t have time to do a ton of dress alterations.
This Sunday I went over to pick my daughter up from her grandparents house and Lynsey and I made a quick 5 hour escape to the mall first to try on what should have been Christmas party dresses. I did find a cute red dress that might be good for Christmas, but I ended up buying this, which will probably be my Mardi Gras dress.
What do you think?
(psst…ignore my office)
I know its black and black is boring and not really my signature color, but I just felt good in it. And it made my boobs not look like a size A so it gained some bonus points.
I am thinking hair up and maybe a small tear drop necklace with a black (fake) diamond?
