Las Vegas With Love, part 1....

Hello Darlings,

Las Vegas was amazing! The perfect way to celebrate my 21st birthday. With so much to see and do, deciding what to wear every day and night was a little overwhelming.

We stayed at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel right on the main street Las Vegas Boulevard and directly across from the amazing fountains of The Bellagio. There is a miniature Eiffel Tower in front of the hotel...

My birthday consisted of a romantic dinner at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which has a beautiful view overlooking the Bellagio fountains, followed by dancing at VooDoo Lounge and XS nightclub (thanks to those who recommend it, it was perfect!!!)

I settled for a simple outfit that made me feel like a ballerina, nothing too over exposing but just perfect for me!!!

I am wearing:
Wilfred nude bustier tee
Free People Ribbon Skirt
Be&D Antonia Pumps
Coach Wristlet
A.V.Max Cuff
Vegas Exploring!

On the first day that we arrived, it was all about exploring and shopping. We also had a chance to check out "Warhol and friends" exhibit at the Bellagio and although it was small the pieces were well selected to represent his period.

In terms of shopping, I mostly stayed away except stopping by the Chanel store to pick up some make up and to buy myself a floppy hat at some random hat store (I'll show it in the second part of my Vegas posts).

As for the outfit, I stayed comfortable with a classic black and white combination... I mostly stayed away from looking too casual.

 

I am wearing:

Susana Monaco Top

Talula Shorts

Bloch Patent Leather Flats

Chanel Sunglasses

Gustto Cokera Purse

A.V. Max Cuff

 

Road Trip to Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam!

My favorite part of the Las Vegas trip was sightseeing at the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. It is definitely worth the drive from Las Vegas, especially the Grand Canyon.

 

Andrew and I rented a highlander and ventured out on a 5 hour drive down the deserts of Nevada and Arizona... the drive was so beautiful. I've never enjoyed being in a car as much as this, it was breathtaking. It even rained in the desert which was probably one of the coolest experiences ever!

If I could recommend one thing to do - this would be it, or travel to the Grand Canyon as a separate vacation... which I am hoping to do sometime ( go hiking, camping and rock climbing in the canyon)!

As for the outfit, I wore a loose long sleeve top, mainly so that my shoulders wouldn't burn. Denim shorts and my oxfords... simple and easy! I also chose to tie my hair back, it is impossible to have your hair looking great in such an environment without fixing it every hour or so and who needs that on a road trip. So for me it was a pony with a bow headband!

I am wearing:

Wilfred top

Abercrombie&Fitch Shorts

Candela Tokyo Oxfords

Ray Ban Wayfarers

H&M Bow Headband

 

More pictures are coming... But first, I couldn't believe my luggage was rummaged through by United States Transportation Security Administration. Apparently my hair straightener and curler were suspicious :P (according to the letter found in my luggage). The locks were cut off and everything was a mess including my make-up kit... Who could have thought shoes and beauty supplies are a security threat? Did you hear that Chanel, Michael Kors and Conair... your products are dangerous!

I wish you all a beautiful day!!!
With Love... Marta
