Mardi Gras Gowns

Well, it’s that time of year again–the Mardi Gras season is upon us!  Formal dress balls and dressy cocktail parties are abounding and require just the right attire!  Unless you have found a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you might want to check out some of the consignment shops in the area for that new-to-you sequined number.

Back on the Rack, 1419 27th Avenue, Suite E in Gulfport, features upscale resale of pre-owned formals, cocktail dresses, Mardi Gras gowns, boots, handbags, designer handbags and more.  Phone: (228) 822-1480

Re-Threads, 1001 E Pass Rd, Gulfport, carries a variety of items for resale plus a good supply of ball gowns and cocktail dresses.  Phone:(228) 896-3850.

Prima Donna Vintage Boutique, 134B Rue Magnolia Street, Biloxi, carries an eclectic collection of vintage and current styles with a limited amount of evening wear.  Phone: 228.365.4939.

Goodwill Industries of South Mississippi has a number of locations all along the Gulf Coast from Diamondhead to Pascagoula, Waveland, Bay St. Louis–fourteen (14!) total.  You never know just what you will find in a Goodwill but you usually find something you can use!

There are other consignment shops in the area but most do not have a website, and unless I have been in the shop or have a website, I feel unqualified to list them for fancy dress attire.

Happy Shopping and I hope you find the perfect gown or cocktail dress for all of your special occasions!!
