It's that time again...Fiesta!

We are on the tail end of our two week celebration called Fiesta of Five Flags.  We blogged about it last year here and here.  During Fiesta, there are so many different events including a street parade, a boat parade, DeLuna's landing reenactment, and coronation.  I am on the costume committee.  A fun but busy role.  Some think that we are actually in on designing the costumes, picking styles and fabrics but it is far less glamorous.  We actually make sure that the court (king, queen, knights and princesses) has all of their costume pieces and parts before heading out for the day's events AND that all of the pieces are clean.  This involves lots of loads of laundry, wrinkle release, and vodka spray.

All of the sudden, coronation is upon us and I have no idea what I am wearing.  I just spent some time looking at dresses online.  My latest Netflix obsession has me thinking, what would Olivia Pope wear?  It seems like we were just talking formal shopping during Mardi Gras and here we are again.
Which is your favorite?  I guess I need to scramble.  One plus is that every dress I picked below is on sale which makes overnight shipping okay, right?!??

  1. Your town has so many fun events! You can never go wrong with Halston. And I have never heard of vodka spray. Who knew it could be so versatile!

    1. I love Halston too! I ended up ordering the Cynthia Rowley. Vodka in a spray bottle is great for things that you cannot wait but maybe need to freshen up a bit :)
