Mardi Gras holds a special place in my heart, as it’s one of my favorite times of the year. It’s a cherished opportunity to bond with family, welcome friends from out of town, and immerse myself in a truly magical atmosphere. The memories created along the routes are irreplaceable, from the elegance of St. Charles to the lively energy of the French Quarter and beyond. Whether it’s a luncheon or any other festivity, I aspire to look and feel my absolute best, embracing the spirit of fun and freedom.
As a plus-size woman, navigating specialty clothing options for holidays can often mean settling for plain solids or struggling to find something that truly fits. I take pride in providing resources to simplify your shopping experience. That’s why I’m excited to share our comprehensive Guide for Plus-Size Mardi Gras attire.
You know Abby, my BFF, is always my go-to. She consistently goes above and beyond to cater to us plus-size shoppers, curating a wide range of options each season. What sets her apart is her dedication to inclusivity – she even consults with me for sizing insights. This Mardi Gras, she’s featuring the Queen of Sparkles Sweaters, and one caught my eye instantly. It feels like it was made just for me.
Megan, the proprietor of The Purple Tiger, is truly championing inclusivity for us plus-size fashion enthusiasts. I’m thrilled to see her dedication in expanding her plus-size Mardi Gras collection this year. You can explore her offerings at 3250 Severn Ave in Metairie.
I recently discovered a gem on the Northshore – a boutique where the owners have meticulously curated their own custom Mardi Gras collection, catering to sizes XS to 3XL. What sets them apart is their diverse range, offering not only sparkly ensembles but also casual wear. Their collection truly stands out, boasting a great variety that caters to different tastes and occasions.
Not only does Armoire offer festive Mardi Gras attire, but they also cater to those in search of plus-size gowns. Locating Plus Size Mardi Gras Ball Gowns locally can be a challenge, but Armoire has truly impressed me with their diverse selection this year.
