Shopping in Vegas is really awesome, especially if you just hit the jackpot! Or you are a CEO just watching your cash flow in, or you are a Personal Shopper like me and spend other peoples money!
Every high end, designer boutique you can think of is here!!!! I took the opportunity to explore the Crystals Shops, The Grand Canal Shoppes, Bellagio and Caesars Forum Shops. I targeted specific stores that I lust after from reading Vogue, IN Style, Elle ect… I also found a few new ones that delighted me- details to come.
For my Window/Walking Shopping Experience I wore a Zara Sequined Skirt, Black Top, and my oh so comfortable Clarks Patent Slides which are currently very stylish now . I was getting compliments everywhere.
Celine was offering a pair for $1050.00
Balenciaga for $585.00
My Clarks I bought on Ebay for $30.00 I know how to shop!!! Appreciate luxury goods, and buy accordingly.
As I was leaving Las Vegas apparently my skirt is not Airport Security friendly as I was instructed for a second security check . AKA strip search. The “Security Machine” does not like any sequence whatsoever and every woman that wears some type of sequence will be frisked and patted down.
Who knew sequence was dangerous???? So this new found knowledge is a must have for all fashionistas: DO NOT WEAR SEQUENCE TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE FRISKED!
Lets begin the window shopping eye candy experience!!!
The Crystals: Located by Aria, Vdara and Mandarin Oriental Hotels- Choice Boutiques
I loved these and visited them 3 times $465.00 I walked away without them
I confess I like spikes and studs and this bag intrigued me since it was so over the top! Over a $1000.00 too!
Dolce & Gabbana
I always romanticize over D&G. I love their concept: modern, sexy, vintage and vibrant colors with lots of jewels and drama! Bring it on, I want to be entertained.
STOP!! I Think this is the most amazing pair of shoes I have ever seen. $3900.00 A heel that is caged with a jewel box inside. OMG I love it!!!! I am cancelling my summer vacation for these. LOL!!
My love affair with Gucci is forever. When I owned a Vintage Consignment store in Palo Alto California in the early 90’s, ladies were dropping off their Gucci bags because the label and lust was over. Guess again ladies. Thanks to Tom Ford and Madonna in the late 90’s Gucci is king again. I want these shoes!!!
I want these too!
I remember watching a Fashion documentary in the 80’s on KQED while living in California. Donna Karan stood out to me because it was the recession, Couture and High End Designers were struggling and when I saw her represent her season collection she walked out to the audience and was so compassionate. She communicated how everyone needed to work together and support the fashion industry and have faith that the US would pull out of the recession and build forward to be a better America. I never forgot her impact and to this day I like Donna Karan for being a amazing designer and amazing woman! Her designs are simple, elegant, classic and comfortable with luxurious fabrics- It is always about the fabric ladies!
When you see this dont’ you just smile and say WOW!! This is a Collection Spring Revival 1973. Yes the 70’s are back! The colors, fabric, lines all perfection!
The Window lured me in! Pink, Red and Flowers– LOVE all this Beauty
Conspiracy Theory: J Crew is stealing Lanvins Jewelry designs. How do I know this? Because as I cruised the gorgeous Lanvin Boutique and honed in on the jewelry case I couldn’t help but notice the similarity between J Crew jewelry, which I own quite a bit of and Lanvin Jewelry. Difference??? Price point and quality of course. Lanvins baubles are to die for and the real deal. I wish I could afford it.
I also have to say on a side note I had so much fun with the gentleman who was working that day at Lanvin Boutique. He was pure delight! Him and I could of gabbed about fashion all day long. Advanced Style was brought up!
Gold Link Chains and Rhinestones- Yes
Oversized Pearls and Rhinestones with Satin Ribbon
Oversized Cabernet Shoulder Duster Earrings- Sexy yes!
Italian brand known for the best Cashmere in the world. This window stopped me in my tracks because look how elegant and beautiful this is? The Fedoras top it off. If only we could all touch the luxurious cashmere coats. MMMMMM soft and wonderful
Kiki de Martnapasse
New discovery and glad I stumbled upon it. I love beautiful lingerie and this store surpassed luxury along with a little naughtiness and fantasy.
I did say Naughty! $295.00 for the pair!
Hmmmmmm I can’t help but have a little curiosity in this boutique. The lace bra and tap pants all hand made, Imported lace and fabric. Set $650.00
Maribou Feather Ring $995.00 I will be making this at home. I have got it all figured out- When completed I will boast and brag about my new craft business. Maribou Rings to fancy and tickle!
Grande Canal Shoppes Part of the Venetian and Palazzo Hotel and Casinos
Barneys New York
I have always enjoyed shopping at Barney’s because it is a vibe my soul needs. There is so much eccentricity between the staff, merchandise and the people who shop at Barneys. Everything is displayed artistically, supreme quality, never over crowded racks and it feels like Fashion Church with a vibrant pulse.
This display caught my eye because I am still trying to figure out who would look good in it and how flattering it would be?
The Conservatory: Surprise it is Spring! The flowers displayed here were intoxicating and beautiful
Todd English Olives Restaurant
Pit stop and refueling. Carpaccio and hidden underneath that mound is arugula and Polenta. A Negroni washed it all down beautifully
Black and Ivory Lucite Lacquered Box Bag $12000.00
Chanel Quilted White Leather Chunk Heel and Black Patent Wide Straps. Beautiful
Caesars Forum shops
I think this bag is gorgeous. Patent Leather Cream Shopper $650.00
I have mentioned in other posts how much I love my LongChamp messenger bag. Here it is with me again with my travels and it is now considered Vintage.
Holly Cat Mirrored Sunglasses $135.00 YES I bought these!!!!!!!!!!
What’s a shopping trip without a little sugar?
Reflecting in my bath about all the fine things in life and luxury goods. Quality vs Quantity. Window Shopping and Browsing was so much fun on this trip. It gave me inspiration, ideas and excitement for Fashion. I am anxious to share my enthusiasm about what I saw and inspire others to feel the way I do about being a Fashionista!
