• Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What To Wear To A Mardi Gras or Masquerade Party

    Happy Tuesday! I’m starting off this fabulous week with a festive What to Wear post.

    Ebony writes, “I am planning on attending a masquerade/mardi gras event. I don’t know what to wear and where to find affordable but cute and fancy masks. Can you help?”

    Shimmer in a black sequins wrap dress uplifted by a pair of sassy Sergio Rossi Filigree sandals.

    For look #2, subdue a sparkly strapless number with a cropped tuxedo jacket.

To cap off this festive look, opt for a matte pink lip and posh chain and tassel drop earrings.

    And for a fancier take on a masquerade look, slip into a long gold sequin gown accented by a pair of Jimmy Choo Sling Glitter Ayers Caged Sandals and a crystal embellished box clutch.

    Gold dangly earrings and a sparkly makeup palette complete this gorgeously dramatic ensemble.

    And when looking to find the perfect Mardi Gras mask that’s not only stylish yet affordable, look to etsy.com or even amazon.com. These online retailers have a slew of feathered and decorative options that I’m sure you’ll find fit perfectly with whatever ensemble you put together.

    Have a fabulous time!
