    Crescent City Dames

     
    Earlier today The Krewe of The Crescent City Dames met at The Chartres House for their 2nd. annual Mardi Gras Sashay. This years theme was Women of Power. Each woman designed a beaded corset and costume to emulate the woman she chose. In classic New Orleans style, the krewe of 70 women indulged in an early morning brunch with Mimosas. At 12:30 the various Women of Power, historic , mystical and fantasy laced up their corsets and proceeded to sashay through the streets of The French Quarter handing out unique Crescent City Dames throws to the Mardi Gras revelers that lined the streets in anticipation. And in New Orleans fashion, a decedent time was had by all.
