Spy Girl NOLA was started by a Dallas native who attended the Carnival festivities with her family. Lauren Sennie’s favorite part of Mardi Gras was seeing the dancers’ white boots with giant tassels. After getting her own pair of white boots then self-customizing with festive tassels and sequins, she decided others needed to have it too. Customers can choose single or multi-colored tassels and add sequins to glam it up.
