Mardi Gras gown blowout at Carriages

’Tis the season for Carnival celebrations in south Louisiana. If you’re in need of a new gown, the Mardi Gras sale running at Carriages Ladies Store can get you ready for the fun. The Bocage boutique has marked down formal gowns and cocktail dresses as much as half off regular retail prices. Designers include Laundry by Shelli Segal (pictured), Nicole Miller, Badgley Mischka, and Carmen Marc Valvo.
