Las Vegas – a city where one can effortlessly elevate their fashion sense. The city’s diverse allure sparked my sartorial senses as soon as the idea of a petite escapade to Vegas with my family surfaced. It was as if the streets of Vegas beckoned me to curate each ensemble with flair.
Nestled in Santa Clarita, California, the journey to Vegas is a mere four-hour drive. This proximity doesn’t dampen my fashion enthusiasm. If anything, it amplifies it. Each outfit meticulously chosen, echoing my sentiments and the ambiance I’d be stepping into.
Here’s a glimpse into my trinity of looks for this jaunt:
- En Route to Vegas Elegance
- Vegas Boulevard Chic
- Dinner à la Vegas
En Route to Vegas Elegance
For this daytime drive, comfort was paramount, yet without compromising on sophistication. Given the scorching prediction of temperatures soaring above 100°F, I opted for a breezy cotton dress from DASH – a relic of an impromptu shopping spree on Melrose Ave years ago.
The ensemble was accented with sandals by Donald Pliner, reminiscent of a fond purchase from the now-defunct MyHabit. My choice of hat, a multicolored tweed creation by Eugenia Kim, speaks to my adoration for her modern twist on luxury headwear. The final touches? A classic Chanel brooch and oversized pearl hoops from Lili Claspe.
The journey to Vegas was delightfully swift, with the city welcoming us under its sun-kissed palms and the palpable excitement in the air.
Our abode for this trip? The contemporary SLS Hotel, where every detail, from service to decor, exudes modern charm.
Vegas Boulevard Chic
Transitioning into the afternoon, my outfit mirrored the vivacity of the Vegas Strip. A breezy cotton set by American Eagle was my pick, a brand my husband, an SEO maestro, works closely with.
My earlier hat and accessories transitioned seamlessly into this look. However, the real game-changer was my footwear. Eschewing conventional sneakers, I chose platform pumps by Jimmy Choo, striking a balance between comfort and panache. Paired with my cherished Louis Vuitton handbag, I was ready to take on the vibrant streets.
Dinner à la Vegas
As night descended, it was time to indulge in the opulence Vegas is renowned for. Our choice of venue, Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, promised a culinary spectacle. For this, only the most elegant ensemble would do.
Channeling Italian luxury, I donned a floral Dolce & Gabbana skirt, paired with a soft cobalt cropped sweater by Autumn Cashmere. Elevating the outfit were my beloved Charlotte Olympia sandals – their satin elegance belies their comfort. The ensemble was perfected with a Chanel necklace and the recurring Lili Claspe hoops, encapsulating my nighttime flair.
This Vegas retreat was not just a journey through the city but also a voyage through fashion, each ensemble capturing the essence of the moment.
