You asked: What to wear to a Mardi Gras-themed party

Updated January 16, 2014: Unfortunately, all items in this post are no longer available.  To help you out, I’ve linked a few similar items that are currently in stock. You can find these links next to the originals under “Product Information.”

I was so excited when this little e-mail landed in my inbox Friday! I love helping people find the perfect outfit, and I love this question because it’s Mardi Gras themed and we can skip right over Valentine’s Day! :) Purple, gold and green are such fun colors to work with, so let’s get started!

I think the perfect combo here would be a purple, gold or green casual dress paired with accessories and ballet flats to dress it down. Or try wearing a skirt with a Mardi Gras colored top. It’s important to be comfortable, but I’d much rather be over dressed than under dressed. Plus, it’s a party, so don’t be afraid to step it up a bit! When creating these outfits, I tried to stick to stores found in Louisiana like Forever 21, Wet Seal, Target, etc. I wouldn’t rely on online shipping dates since the event is coming up so soon — Who doesn’t love a trip to the mall anyway? :)

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months
