Hey guys! I was recently inspired by Vegas.com and their #ultimatevegasoutfit challenge to share how I would style my look for a day in Las Vegas. I love the challenge because I have only been to Vegas once, and it was when I was 19 – I have been dying to go back since I turned 21 (which was quite a long time ago, haha!)
I’m not a big gambler, but I definitely rock the penny slot machines alongside the grandmas 🙂
For my day look, I was inspired by the Circus Circus Hotel. Although it’s not the swankiest spot on the strip, it looks like so much fun! Of course they have a casino, but they also have a rotating snack bar on a carousel, AND a theme park!
My dress is a recent score from Lindy Bop’s Memorial Day sale – I only paid $15 for it! Crazy! I love checking the sale section on their site because the prices are usually really good.
Because I’m imagining a visit to Circus Circus, I accessorized with the cutest popcorn handbag from Betsey Johnson:
Isn’t it adorable? I also wore my “Hooray” bobby pin, because that’s what I’ll be saying when I hit it big at the slot machines!! (psst…when you play penny slots, a “big win” is anything over 5 bucks, ha!)
Aaaaaand below are a couple of pictures of me posing with the cactus…because that’s what you do when you are in front of a big fake cactus, right?!
When we took these photos, Dave was wearing another vest-and-bow tie outfit, so I knew I had to snap a few of him too:
For my night look, I was inspired by Bellagio Hotel. I have loved that hotel ever since I saw it get robbed in Ocean’s 11 🙂 (and that scene at the end near the fountain, with Debussy’s Clair de Lune playing? SO good!).
The Bellagio is definitely a more upscale place, so it needed a more upscale look. Since Vegas is all about living it up and doing things big, I decided to dream a bit outside of my closet and put a few wish list items together for this outfit.
Dress: Pinup Girl Clothing Couture Veronica Dress in Black with Black Heart
Necklace: Club Suit Necklace via Hello Charms HQ on Etsy
Purse: Kate Spade Place Your Bets Emmanuelle
Earrings: EFFY Geo Diamond and 14K White Gold Spike Drop Earrings via Lord and Taylor
Shoes: Fine Dining Heel in Gold via ModCloth (Chelsea Crew)
Did you notice something cool about my outfit? (other than the fact that it retails in the thousands, haha)
I have a dress with a heart in the middle, a Kate Spade bag with a spade on it, a club necklace, and diamond earrings in the shape of a diamond. If that’s not a lucky outfit for a night on the town in Vegas, I don’t know what is!
