Important caveats about this Mardi Gras dress: This is not for Mobile, where I could be blackballed for wearing a heretical dress; this is New Orleans, and almost anything goes. Remember the crocheted dress with all kinds of skin showing that I saw a couple of years ago? And there will be thousands of people imbibing all manner of drinks, so I'm not going to bring a hush to the room (Superdome) when I enter. Thus, I have opted for outside knots, referred to as "Alabama Fur."
Of course, I hope it doesn't look like I just walked through a dust storm!
Like I told Bianca, if I'm going to go crazy, I may as well go all the way!
