I've never actually been to Vegas myself, only really seen it from afar through glossy travel brochures and magazine editorials and of course pixelated on television and computer screens, but I've always envisioned that my first sojourn into Sin City would be started off via a helicopter ride at dusk or in some extravagant black SUV. Zooming through those grandiose flashing lights and fountains, everything blurring past into a rainbow wall of neons and sheer excitement. I actually have a bit of a crush on this town. All that glitz and glamour, sparkle and animation. It's pretty electrifying when you think about it all. So when I was contacted by Vegas.com and invited to participate in their Vegas style challenge, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. I mean, it's Vegas baby!

The challenge is basically my take on a day at the Aria Resort and Casino. What I'd do, see and wear. So where does one begin in a city that never sleeps? Well in my books it pretty much starts with a calorie laden breakfast (or more likely, brunch) with my crew on a kind size bed. I mean, greasy food, great company, white sheets and my body sprawled out like a pig in mud with a view of the town, what is not better than that to start ones day? And since it's probably like a billion degrees outside I'll need to hit the pools straight after our feast. Some good tunes and some decadent cocktails at Liquid Lounge to help cure our indulgent food coma of hours past. Just chilling in the sunny Vegas sunlight in a two piece bathing suit for comfort and spontaneous dips in the pool. And add some colourful, yet practical bling on ones arm since it is Vegas after all, and a bit of sparkle is practically mandatory at all times, and of course being Australian, denim cut offs are just an essential sartorial piece in my books.

And after a hard day of relaxation and soaking in a years worth of Vitamin D, naturally we begin feeling slightly peckish and as the sun bids adieu to this side of the world our energy levels are at an all time high, so up to our rooms we go to get ready for a big Vegas night out. A night that may or may not be reminiscent of those Hangover movies. And a big night in this town for me means starting it with dinner at Sage, then off to try our luck with a bit of blackjack at the casino. Now, I hate gambling because I am the sorest of losers. All it takes is a loss of $2 and I turn into the Hulk. True story. But since this is Vegas my Hulk tendencies will have been left behind back home, locked away to see an adventure another day. And as the night goes on we'll end up taking the shenanigans off to the fabulous Gold Lounge, for which my nighttime ensemble ties into perfectly.

So what do you guys do in Vegas? And, more importantly, what would you wear and to where?

  6. Love this post Sonia!!! And you seriously have to go to Vegas, I've been too many times to remember in my early 20's ahhhh! But there are so many kinds of experiences depending on if you're there on a romantic getaway or if you're single with your girlfriends. Your outfits are perfect and you'd be the hottest in the club with your going out look. I love XS night club to show the real glitz of Vegas, the top restaurants and steakhouses (Stripsteak in Mandalay Bay) are in Vegas and don't forget the day pool parties, Cirque shows, blackjack and walking down the strip. It seems like a lot, but you will see enough in 48 hours to last you a decade. ;) Great post!!! PS - the Aria is one of the best hotels too.

  30. Hi Sonia!! Omg I loooove your Vegas picks! Too bad I was never there. I hate gambling too but I bet I would find something fun to do there. The Jimmy Choo's are to die for. How do I explain what I wanted to do with PS. I wanted to cut out pieces of my pics (not the whole photo) and transfer them into another. I have succeeded now and I know what to do. Actually it's pretty easy if you figured it out. Wish you a wonderful day!

  59. I've never really wanted to go Vegas but you might have just made me change my mind! I want to wake up in a giant bed with crisp white sheets and eat luxurious breakfasts before lazing by a pool! That sounds like absolute heaven.

    I hope you're doing well, Sonia!! My little brother is in Melbourne for the jazz festival this weekend and I'm so immensely jealous. He texted me today though to say I absolutely have to head over ASAP, so (and I know I always say this but I'm getting more and more determined), hopefully I'll be seeing you soon! Maybe even before the year is out :D

    Lots of love! Rhi :) xx
