Viva Las Vegas

I spent Christmas with family in Las Vegas this past week, and it was such a great time! We stayed out all day and up all night shopping, eating, people-watching, and even did a little gambling (hehe). It was a deliciously worry-free 4 days that was very much needed. My feet are basically killing me from walking nearly the entire strip of casinos, but it was well-worth it, especially at night when the lights bring Sin City to life. The new hotel The Cosmopolitan was a pure (or may I say sinful) indulgence. Good music and super cool (or shall I say cosmopolitan?) atmosphere. The SATC crew would totally chill here. And The Bellagio always has the BEST Christmas season decorations. The best thing was just being able to spend time with everyone in my family. I feel so lucky and blessed to have them all, and I cherish every second that I get to be with them. This was everything I needed this Christmas. I hope each and every one of you were able to spend this special time with your loved ones and enjoy the company of laughter, smiles, and a very full tummy.
This past year has been full of so many amazing opportunities and experiences, and spending the holidays the way I did was the perfect way to end it. Look forward to a Vegas Part 2 post, but most of all, let’s all look forward to the new year with an open mind, open heart, and an open road to explore and travel.

Roman Holiday

December 27, 2010

Just a quick little blog post to let you know that I hope you all had a wonderful holiday wherever you may be. I have a blog post ready for tomorrow morning so you guys can see what I have been up to this past week to celebrate Christmas. If I had to have one Christmas wish come true right this instant, I would choose to relive the role of Audrey Hepburn in one of my favorite Audrey movies, Roman Holiday. I’d feel rebellious and cut my hair short (and it would actually look good on me). I’d ride on a Vespa with a handsome man like Gregory Peck (now he’s what I call super dreamy). I’d eat ice cream as I walk through a Roman open market in my brand new sandals as men fill my arms with flowers. I’d fall in love in Rome. And maybe I’d fall out of love in Rome. But then I would do it all over again because all that matters is that I am in Rome. Okay, it is official. I NEED to be Audrey Hepburn.

As promised, here is the head-to-toe look with my vintage lace dress. This dress was originally a wedding dress, but was totally remade into what you see now. Isn’t that just an amazing idea? This dress fits me perfectly and it really is one-of-a-kind. A jewel to be treasured forever and ever. All by itself, it’s perfect for a party or elegant dinner outing, but right now I am wearing it in a way suitable for everyday, rain or shine. I cannot wait to wear it again! Lace, leather, and leopard print are just meant to be worn together. And I love how this clutch bag adds an unexpected pop of color that jumps out at you. These wedge booties are my favorites shoes. They used to be brown, but I just got them dyed black not too long ago. Smartest decision ever because now I can wear them with everything in my closet! I probably won’t be updating until after Christmas, so hugs and kisses until then!
Happy holidays everyone!!


Only 3 More Days . . .

December 21, 2010

As you can see from the pictures above, I am totally in the Christmas mood. Our living room looks its prettiest at night when our neighbor’s lights sparkle through our window, the tree is twinkling, and the chandelier hangs brightly in all of its elegant glory. Only three more days until Christmas. I want these next three days to go by as slooooooowwwwwwwwly as possible because I never want Christmas to end. These pictures are also a little sneak peak of tomorrow morning’s post where you will see how I styled this vintage lace dress for a more casual day out. Even though it has been raining kittens and puppies for nearly 24 hours every single day, there is no reason not to dress your best. The holidays are the perfect reason to put your most fashionable foot forward, don’t you think?
