Welcome to The Week In Pictures! How was your week?! Kat, Gala and I landed in Vegas on Monday so mine was full of glitter, magic, margaritas and palm trees. There’s so much more to share with you about places to go and shows to see but for now, here’s a highlight reel:
Pure, ridiculous fun.
One of my biggest regrets is not going to see Siegfried and Roy live during my first trip to Vegas in 1998. I have their books and have read most of their interviews but that will never take the place of seeing them perform in person. Gotta love this bronze bust!
I went a little crazy with gift shop purchases. The ultimate buy? This two foot tall statue from The Flamingo. I bought it without thinking about how I’d actually get it home and had to ask for packing suggestions.
This time around, we stayed at the Encore and everything was on point including the floral arrangements. DAYAMN!
A highlight of the trip was seeing Britney live from the front row. Back in my high school days, I was too much of a teenage goth to engage in such delights. Seeing her now was totally worth the wait — that girl still has all the moves, not to mention a killer selection of rhinestone-encrusted catsuits.
The perfect place to sit down and rest after some shopping and gambling? On a ledge in front of this epic pegasus inside of Caesar’s Palace. Oh, the drama!
One of my favorite hangouts is the Mirage. It’s Polynesian-themed with ample palm trees, a volcano that erupts every half hour and is the former home of Siegfried and Roy. Need I say more?!
This was the first vacation in the last few years where I took a real break from client work and lived it up. Most people recommend that you never stay in Vegas for longer than three days but after five, Kat and I were wishing we had another week. There’s so much more to do than engaging in the the usual vices and I can’t wait to share the best finds with you! A few of you were asking where this dress was from — it’s by Nasty Gal.
The real appeal of Vegas lies in the fantasy — it’s a place where anything goes. False eyelashes, a dash of sequins and a pull on the slot machine handle before noon? All good! Bigger is better, more is more and as Liberace would say, too much of a good thing is FABBBBULOUUUUS! When real life calls for a time out, Vegas is just a flight away, waiting to show you a good time.
I’m signing off for the weekend to spend some time with my family but I wanted to leave you with this quote as a reminder to stay true to who you are and live it up:
