NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – The New Orleans Red Dress Run is just days away. It’s getting harder and harder for men to find that perfect dress. Of course, most guys aren’t used to it. News With A Twist reporter Deepak Saini went to Bloomin’ Deals on Freret Street and found two guys looking for the right size.
Move over ladies in red, the Red Dress Run is going to the men!
“It seems surprising but lots of men run the red dress run so we sell more dresses to men than we do the rest of the year,” says Katherine Raymond with the Junior League of New Orleans.
Thrift shops in New Orleans like Bloomin’ Deals on Freret Street are putting their best dresses forward.
Michael Flynn and his buddy Zach are trying to find that dress to impress.
“I’m a big guy and I haven’t had much luck so anything I can get on is what I’m going to get, ” says Flynn.
He finally finds the one.
“Oh, this could be promising,” says Flynn.
What’s better than finding the right dress? Compliments!
A customer tells Michael, “You got some beautiful legs. You have Beyonce legs.”
Mission accomplished for two guys who look rad in red.
The Red Dress Run is this Saturday at 9 a.m. in Armstrong Park. The Junior League of New Orleans says Bloomin’ Deals would be happy to take your red dress donations after the run.
