Mardi Gras Fashion: Casual or Glam

@hm @uniqlousa @pixiemarketnyc @thisis_NIKI :
Happy Mardi Gras!!! As I get ready at 6am this morning  to celebrate one of my favorite holidays…well in New Orleans at least. I struggle with what I will be wearing today.
Casual or Glam is my only challenge. With New Orleans being an eclectic gumbo of fashion on Mardi Gras Day,  I want to look GLAMXURIOUS but still comfy and not ruin any of my real great bling pieces (going for coconuts…lol).
So while I sit here at my vanity barely awake, hopefully I can magically put together a few cute pieces of clothing from H&M, UNIQLO, and PIXIE MARKET.  At least I know the shoes will be straight from the 2011 NBA All Star swag courtesy of fashion stylist Niki Hall. At the end of the day, all that matters is that  my hair & makeup look great, right?
