A Fine Frock

Cheer & Clothing in Las Vegas

Do you guys remember the 2-part episode of Roseanne when they go to Vegas? Of course you do. Truly, all I wanted in the world was to have a queen of hearts sweatshirt with sequin detailing for this trip. 

Yaaaaas, kween.

However, I didn't have any card-themed clothing, so I went a different direction. 

This first outfit was actually my plane ensemble, which Mr. Fine Frock described as something a C-list actress from a Hulu original show would wear on a plane. A pretty solid burn, but he's not wrong. I reprised the outfit later in the weekend because I packed light and also I just really liked it.

I spotted this great hotel with a retro feel called The Plaza, and I knew I wanted to get some pics there. The exterior has a huge pop-art mural and this cute mod-ish courtyard I'm posing in front of, but the interior...my gawwwwwd, it's rough. We attempted to go to their breakfast buffet, but the smell of this establishment, you guys. 

Imagine the basement of your grandma's house after she chain-smoked in it for 50+ years, then put a few thousand vanilla scented glade plug-ins around the place to freshen things up a bit. Yeah. 

I love the look of this simple black jumpsuit with a multi-patterned kimono. It feels part glam, part pajamas--wait, paglamas?! I think I just coined a new word.

Next: The Wedding Outfit 

I've had this frock for a few months, but I needed a good formal occasion to wear it to, because it's just a bit too fancy for everyday use. A Las Vegas wedding seemed like the perfect venue, especially because the bride has a vintage/eclectic style. As I mentioned last week, I ordered the shoes online specifically to go with the dress and they ended up matching perfectly. I love it when that happens, don't you?

As you can see, I wanted to be sure that you noted the bell sleeves.

So we stayed in downtown Vegas (or the "old strip") at The Golden Nugget and it was delightfully kitschy. Fremont Street was full of glittery breasts, Chippendales guys, street performers and the like. But also--souvenirs! Browsing tacky souvenirs is always fun, and man--Vegas has no shortage.

Overall, loved the wedding, loved the neon signs of downtown, loved the vegetarian spot we ate at (VegeNation) and loved Container Park. 

I wouldn't dream of posting pics of the bride's whole outfit before she does, but trust me--IT WAS EPIC. 

That's all for now! Join me next week to see what amazing finds I score when the founder of the vintage app I'm obsessed with (Whurl, duh) does a pop-up HERE IN OMAHA!
