Mardi Gras

It's that time of year again...we are gearing up for Mardi Gras!

As most of you know, the hubs is from the New Orleans area, so we've made it a little tradition since we have been married to get down there for at least a parade or two. This year the mister will actually be riding in a parade, which will be really fun to see him a top his float, flinging beads to the masses while in costume!

As I'm nearing 9 months pregnant, there are a few things I'm already lamenting regarding this trip.  I will be tired, can't walk far or stand for too long, can't stay up very late, but mostly....I'm lamenting the loss of this rare opportunity to look amazing in an evening gown.

The past couple of years, we have attended the Endymion Extravaganza, the ball after the Endymion parade.  It is a true black tie event and there are some amazing dresses there!  But me?  Oh, I'll just be in a muu muu and some crocks. 

But in the midst of all the preparation, I've been secretly day-dreaming of the dress of my dreams that I'll (maybe) get to one day wear.  

I remember a dress that a friend of ours wore to my sister's wedding.  It was a metallic jacquard burnout on chiffon over a colorful underlay.  It was really beautiful!  I asked who the designer was: Aidan Mattox.  I have been obsessed with his gowns ever since!  They are really much more beautiful in person, gorgeous materials and a perfect fit!
