What to wear in Vegas: Dinner

If you know me in real life, you know I'm super excited to be heading to Las Vegas on Friday.  I've never been before, and I'm flying out to meet N when he's done with a trade show.  Because I'm me, I wanted a new outfit to wear when we go to dinner at Craftsteak and watch Mystere (we have never been to a Cirque du Soleil show, so we figured we may as well see the older one since it was way cheaper).

The retail gods were smiling on me this week, because I managed to get a new dress and shoes for $65.  I went to return a suit I bought on clearance from White House Black Market (jackets don't fit me... it's sad) and came across these shoes for $39!  They really comfortable, and once I decided to call them vegan instead of fake leather I convinced myself that they're a worthy addition to my closet

Then, I went to meet my cousin for a facial at the Aveda Institute (you must do this if there's one in your city) was running early so I stopped in to Nordstrom Rack.  I was browsing the clearance racks when I saw a flash of cobalt blue.  I pulled this Tahari by ASL dress and saw that it was my size and only $25.  It fits like a glove, so I couldn't leave it there! 

excuse the crappy phone picture...

I plan to wear the dress and shoes with my turquoise bubble necklace (similar to below) and brown leather clutch, kind of like this:





Ok, now I'm even more excited.  Have you been to Vegas?  Any tips are appreciated!

  2. You'll love Craftsteak and Mystere. And you'll look classier than about 99% of the women you'll see there. DH and I were in LV in May, and we went to dinner in a very nice restaurant, where we saw a man having dinner by himself with 3 gorgeous, scantily-clad Asian women who were Definitely On The Clock if you catch my drift. Even the waitstaff thought he was over the top gross.

  5. Barsola here, I still can't comment on your blog! Anyway, I recently bought a dress of the same color and very similar shoes! The dress is for a wedding and I wore it for our anniversary ($28 at Target), the shoes were to match a belt I had so when I wear a certain outfit, it matches ($32 at DSW) and a necklace that matches the dress perfectly also from Target ($12). Similar look, almost the same prices you paid. Just wanted to share cuz it struck me as funny/odd.
