7 Red Dress Run Essentials!

Red Dress Run is all about dressing up, having fun and donating to charity. The more you save on your outfit, the more you can donate to charity! You can easily go out and purchase a red dress, BUT just like white dresses during White Linen Night, cost effective red outfits are sometimes hard to come by. DIY to the rescue! Check out my 7 Red Dress Run Essentials with DIY tutorials for the perfect Red Dress Run Outfit.

1. DIY Mask

With all the festivals and events we have in New Orleans; every New Orleanian should know how to make a mask! This Red Dress Run project can be used for other Holidays like Halloween and Mardi Gras, just paint and embellish with different colors.

2. DIY Lettered Tank top

Use fabric spray paint to create your own one-of-a-kind design. I found a simple red tank top at Old Navy that was on clearance for $1.50, can't get better than that!

3. Red Boa

Another New Orleans essential! I have not gone one Mardi Gras without catching 2 or 3 of these. A boa is a great way to create movement for your costume.
For a different look, tie the ends of your boa together to create a circle. Now it won't slip off!

4. DIY No-Sew Tutu

Instead of buying your next tutu, make your own!

Check out this LINK below for instructions on how you can make your own!

5. Long Socks

No tutu is complete without some long socks! Buy patterned socks to make your outfit more interesting!

6. Red Sneakers 

These sneakers were $14 at Old Navy! If you don't want to buy new shoes, you can also use some red fabric paint on some old sneakers that you already own.

7. DIY Felt Tumbler Sleeve

This Red Dress Run project is more for the after party. I found these cute "I Heart My Dog" tumblers at Michael's for a dollar! Since I don't have a dog, I decided to make a felt sleeve to hide the wording.
