Dressing On-Trend for Carnival Season

Mardi Gras is a southern, carnival tradition.  I have enjoyed participating in the festival since childhood.  This year, I was invited to attend one of the balls. Guests were asked to dress in non-traditional attire, wearing sequin tops and denim jeans.

Immediately, I started searching for the perfect sequin blouse.  I was able to find what I needed at the local thrift shop.

The top (below) had all of the colors that represent the event and matched perfectly with my bottom.

I have secretly been waiting for the right time to wear my clear ankle booties. This shoe was on-trend and wore nicely for an evening of dancing.

Thrifting can be a lot of fun if you have an idea of the piece your searching. What’s your favorite thrifted item?
