I had a wonderful time in Las Vegas, as expected. I absolutely love that city. Zac Posen describes it as a "bizarre oasis" because it is in the middle of the dessert, and I agree. Las Vegas is amazing all around and I will live there one day. Here are a few snapshots the lovely Wynn Hotel!
We stayed at the ultra-fabulous Wynn Hotel/Resort on the strip. It is one of the newer hotels and by far one of the best. It is beautiful, everything about the place is perfect. The rooms were adorable, Andy Warhol's "Flowers" (prints) hang in every resort room. The walls are painted with a bronze coating and the beds are seriously the most comfortable ever, I don't think I've ever slept so good and comfortably. The bathrooms were huge, and I totally loved the shower and super cute vanity. The view from our floor to ceiling windows was phenomenal, we had a view of the golf course in back, pools, and a little bit of the city as well!
The whole hotel was full of cute little details, the hallways and elevators were decorated with butterflies and fabric walls. The casino, lobbies, everything. . . gorgeous. I loved the paisley and floral carpet in the hallways!
I spent some time wandering around the casino, I can't wait until I am old enough to gamble. . . ha. The bottom right image is the center piece in Harrah's casino (where we stayed last time).
The shopping (as always) is my favorite part of Las Vegas, I love being around fine retail stores even if I can't afford anything in them haha. Wynn hotel had a handful of very fine stores including Chanel, Graff, Alexander McQueen, and Oscar de la Renta just to name a few. They also had an OutFit and ShoeIn boutique that had many items from awesome designers. I fell in love with this Oscar de la Renta gown (top left image) and lusted after this Alexander McQueen bag (top left). These shops were down a hall called "The Esplanade", also lovely and full of detail! The pictures below show some more of the stores and some of the pretty detail on The Esplanade!
Below are just a few random images from Las Vegas, me outside Ceaser's Palace and in the Palazzo Hotel.
I had a good birthday for the most part (28th), my mom bought me a really cool pair of Michael Kors boots, a necklace at Armani Exchange, and a few things at the VS PINK store in the Forum shops. I bought a pair of Oscar de la Renta sunglasses too. I stocked up on some fresh MAC makeup courtesy of the MAC store in Ceaser's Forum Shops and thanks to Nic, the adorable makeup artist who helped me pick out my eyeliner (I loved his!). I was very disappointed that the Cher concert was canceled. . . that being the main reason I wanted to go to Las Vegas for my birthday. Apparently Cher fell ill and is out until 2009, I hope everything is ok but I was still sad. I love her! I did get to see some costumes of hers, as well as a few Bob Mackie gowns, notably the ones worn to the Oscars in the 1980's. Below are pictures from the Forum Shops and Cher costumes, etc...
I had a very nice trip. Again, I can not stress how much I love Las Vegas. Even if I missed seeing Cher, it's not a big deal, just an excuse to come back in 2009, which I will! On my last day there we did more shopping and I treated myself to a small Coach purse. It is adorable. We also had dinner at SW, one of the restaurants in Wynn. Our bill was $140! My mom and I shared the Porterhouse Steak for two and had a side of asparagus and potatoes au gratin. It was bangin, haha. I asked for an apple juice which our server, Chris, said they did not serve but they would get. I told him they didn't have to do all that but he insisted and two minutes later I had the smallest $6 apple juice sitting in front of me, lol. The restaurant is so pretty, and there is a show on the Lake of Dreams outside every 30 minutes that we saw. The whole thing was almost magical, I loved it. There was this little old lady that was eating alone and had a stuffed teddy bear sitting across from her, that made me sad. Anyway below are three pictures, the desert mint from SW, the water show, and me before dinner. I was sticking my chest out funny when I posed so I look a little pregnant (empire waist), and the dress was actually a deep teal, not blue.
