mardi gras & tons of sequins

 {coat: asos | dress: eloquii via gwynnie bee | boots: lane bryant | clutch: navoh | earrings: simply chic}

This dress is a perfect example of why I am obsessed with Gwynnie Bee!  I live for sequins, and this dress is amazing... but I was happy with wearing it just one time, because I was just renting.  The best part was getting to return it and having another fabulous outfit shipped back out to me. This is not a sponsored post, but I just love telling others about this website because I am having so much fun with my 30 day free trial.  Clothing without commitment!!! Check out other great Gwynnie Bee garments I have worn herehere, and here!  Moving on to the merrymaking:
It is easily one of my top three favorite days of the year!  This time last year I was living it up on the streets of NOLA, celebrating with parades and parties. (Check out some pics from last year below.)  I would love to be there again this year, but alas, it was not in the plans!  However, I am letting the good times roll on the banks of the mighty Mississipi! I have plans to devour a king cake, wear more purple, green, and gold, and drink a daiquiri (or three)!  How are you celebrating Fat Tuesday?  Enjoy!
And remember... not collecting beads ain't all it's cracked up to be ;)


  1. love the dress.. and as you already know..love the coat... hear it's gonna get chilly again in Memphis so you'll get some more use of of it soon. :)
