I'm headed out of town for a few days with my BFF, Melissa, to experience Mardi Gras for the first time.  She is a native Louisianan so this is nothing new for her, but me......I'm a virgin to this never-ending party scene. Our itinerary includes:

Friday: Balcony party on Bourbon Street to view parade (no I don't plan on showing the goods)
Saturday:  Endymion Ball (black tie and full length gowns required!)
Sunday: Private party on St. Charles street to view parade
Monday: Horse Races
Tuesday: Fly home in need of massive juice cleanse which I'm starting on that Wednesday

So what does a girl wear to the ball?

Full Length Black Sequined Michael Kors Dress (comfortable but sexy with a nod to the 70s)

Emerald Green Jewelry
Anthropologie Bracelet

Vivi Bracelet

Large Emerald Cocktail Ring; my best attempt to channel you know who

Peacock Feather Hair Accessory

Black Strappy Shoes to add a little edge (these are Jimmy Choo's...mine are wannabee Jimmy Choo's)

Gold Clutch (large enough to hold my backup flats; according to Melissa, the ball goes until sunrise)

Be watching Facebook for updates on our trip.  I'm sure there will be some entertaining pics.  Happy early weekend......back next week!
