New Orleans Style

Aren't these masks gorgeous? These pictures make me wish I were going to a glamorous masquerade party to celebrate Mardi Gras tonight. Instead I will be spending the night at home unless I give into peer pressure and end up in downtown Campbell for the night. What does one wear for Mardi Gras celebration aside from beads and a mask?


Does anyone have any fun plans for Fat Tuesday?

Haha....I think its more about what women DON'T wear on Mardi Gras. Not that I advice you to plan an "outfit" around this. :-) Love the Valentino mask. So mysterious.

These masks are gorgeous! Reminds me of Venice, actually, because I've never been to New Orleans and I HAVE been to Venice! No plans for us, we're staying in as usual!

An easy way to "celebrate" Mardi Gras: eat a moonpie!

What stunning masks! I confess, I've never celebrated Fat Tuesday (at least, as an adult. My parents took us to Brazil for Madri Gras one year when I was WAY too young to enjoy it!) so I'm a terrible source of party ideas, but I hope you have fun tonight, whatever you do!
