Vegas Dreaming

My husband (it's still so new to call him that!) and I have recently started to plan our Honeymoon and to make sure we save up for the time of our lives we are planning a year in advance to get the most out of our trip.

Starting in the US we are heading to LA, Vegas and San Francisco! We already know our accommodation and entertainment for each and every location but I'm already in 'what to wear' plan mode. Mary Blair collection items from PUG for our two days at Disneyland, lots of killer pinup outfits for evenings out and heaps of comfy traveling clothes for long road and plain trips. I think I'll be investing in a few more pairs of disco pants for this trip.

On this trip I'm really excited to hopefully set up some shoots with lots of great friends and companies while I'm in town. But what I'm really excited to do is go back to Vegas without a limp! A few years ago I headed over for Viva Las Vegas but 8 weeks earlier I had hurt my left knee so having lots of fun and painting the town red was not on the cards.

Well in 2016 I'm making up for it! I'm so excited to experience the US with my fella and it's his first time on US soil so it's all new to him.

I plan both seasons and years ahead at times - a girl's gotta save! So while in outfit planning mode I've been thinking of what I will need to add to my collection and wear while abroad. I'm focusing on Vegas as I have the rest of my trip covered with 80's of my pinup/casual wardrobe but for Vegas I'm going to go for a little more sparkle.

There are few outfits I'm lusting after right now and these will definitely be in my suitcase for Vegas 2016, well it would be wrong to waste them playing at a mobile casino instead. I missed out on a few experiences last time but with more time and funds I'll be making sure I get to stay and play to my heart's content.


My first outfit choice is for finally seeing Beatles Love at the Mirage with my husband and hopefully an amazing date night in and out of casinos. I adore the fit and stunning fabric of the Gilda dress and having owned the Gilda Gown I know how amazing this style is for curves. The perfect little red cocktail dress and the perfect outfit for a show, drinks and a few games of roulette. The deep wine velvet fabric needs a bold black shoe and I love the matte PU Bordello Teeze style for this outfit.

I did mention that I wanted to sparkle just a little, didn't I? I think the stunning Angelique Collar Necklace pairs perfectly with the deep red velvet fabric. The rich mixture of red. gold and green are perfect for my colouring


Then we will head off the strip and go straight to Frankies Tiki Room! I wanted to visit this iconic retro venue years ago but sadly I missed out. For Frankies, I need the ultimate Tiki dress and the Malibu Dress with matching bolero is one of the most figure flattering dresses I've ever owned. With a molded bust, faux wrap design and adorable bolero this is the perfect outfit to wear while we spend our night drinking amazing cocktails.

But the outfit does not stop there! The accessories are what complete this look and I don't want to take away from the print in any way. A bold tropical hair flower, some bamboo bangles and a killer red pump turn take this dress from simply stunning to a killer tiki look.

So there we have it! 2 days worth of outfits sorted for Vegas. Now to hunt for a day time outfit!
