Blushing beauties

Mardi Gras coming up roses

One of the hottest colors in recent months has arrived subtly and simply - blush and super sweet pink. And two of our favorite fashion find for Mardi Gras falls right into that rosy portion of the color wheel.

Maven Womenswear does Mardi Gras simply with a lace-trimmed dress you can rock more casually down the road. For the ball give it the glitter treatment with major statement earrings, a bold bracelet and shimmering metallic heels.

A rose-decked shoulder by any other standard would be questionable, but this bubble gum dress from Hemline keeps the shape simple and nails that look in a ways that's sweet and streamlined at once. Keep hair in a simple bun and try a matchy matchy lip for a fabulous finish.
