Happy Fat Tuesday!

Cohabitating Closet is heading to New Orleans for a nerd-tastic professional conference in the wee hours of Fat Tuesday. (If I complain about my job, please remind me about the many perks, including the snow days and relative wardrobe flexibility). I'm not a particularly religious person, but I do like traditions and any conventions in which people act like crazies. I will try to take photos of the Bourbon St. fashions (as well as my "profesh" wear) while I am there. I am also deeply interested in getting crawfish. I went to Mississippi on one of the service spring breaks back in college and had a crawdad bender.
Last year, a coworker from Louisiana brought in a King Cake. I got the slice with the baby. Lucky me:

festiveness amidst rather unfortunate fake wood tables

The colors of Mardi Gras are Purple, Green, and Gold. As a self-professed color phobic (what, grey isn't a color?), I hope to get some inspiration while I am in the Big Easy. It's my first trip. Wish me luck!


  1. Have fun! I hope all the festivity helps inspire some colorful fashion :)

  2. that's awesome!!! have fun!! I think it would be fun to travel for work but I can also see why it wouldn't be a "perk".. at least you'll be there for mardi gras! ;)
