I totally blanked on the fact that Mardi Gras was here until I was watching the news this morning, but the outfit I planned was ready for the party anyway. I saw this sequin sweater online and instantly fell in love. I hemmed and hawed over whether this was worth buying, should I wait for a sale, how practical are sequins? I was trying to convince myself I didn't need it, but a recent sale on sweaters had me still wanting to make it mine. Have you ever thought about something, tried to convince yourself not to get it, but just couldn't get it out of your mind?
There were no regrets on my part. My sweater brought a little party to work and some co-workers supplied jambalaya and king cake. Our own little celebration that's probably not as grand as the real deal, but still fun all the same.
