It's Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is in full swing here on the Gulf Coast, and this past weekend there were balls all over town.  I love looking at Facebook and Instagram each morning to see the pictures and reading about the shenanigans from the night before!  

On Friday, Traci and I attended the Rebellaires ball with our husbands.  It's a black tie affair, but girls can get away with wearing a short dress, so I usually do.  With so many events requiring long gowns this time of year, I like to take advantage of the opportunity to go short.  This year I dug deep in my closet at my parents' house to bring out and oldie but a goodie.  I got this outfit in 2005 on a trip to Italy with my mom.  We were in Milan, and I remember having so much fun in all the beautiful shops.  This black top and skirt are Moschino and the shoes are vintage Prada, which proves that good clothes never go out of style.
