Back to Vegas


shopping at The Forum

So I had promised a third post from our recent trip to Las Vegas because I wanted to mention the amazing food at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill along with one more OOTD so here goes:

First off, this restaurant was great - I will definitely visit next time we go to Las Vegas. I started off with the Pomegranate Martini which the waiter said was "Bobby's favorite" and went on to choose from the prix fixe menu.

shrimp & tamale appetizer

16 spice chicken - I must learn to make this - it was amazing

grilled shortcake with strawberries & gooseberries - again, yum!

So if you read my blog you know that right after this dinner we headed over to the Coliseum where I thought we had 10th row seats to Cher but ended up being front row center. (I won't subject y'all to that story again but I am still smiling thinking about it.)

So anyway here is what I wore the next day:


J Crew top, ATL cardi in ivory, ATL pants in black, black TB Revas, Gucci sunnies, Michele watch


And a snap of that crazy big project they are building on the strip right now. Notice the super modern facade for the Louis Vuitton... see the LV logo right above that first palm tree?... Quite different from the Paris stores. I will have to get back to see all this when it is finished!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

OOTE 9.22.09: THE CHER CONCERT


Let me just start off by saying that I have very fond childhood memories of The Sonny and Cher show. I looked up to Cher for being just so glamorous, talented, and funny. My mom tells me that when I was little I cried and cried when I found out they were getting divorced.

So, when my husband told me to pick a show for our Vegas trip and I saw that Cher was at The Coliseum, I was really excited and he went online a couple months ago to get the best tickets we could. We ordered Orchestra seats and best available were around the 10th row, slightly off to the side. Great seats in a venue that seats about 4,000 and I was very excited.

So, on Tuesday night, we have a fabulous dinner at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill and then head over to Will Call to pick up our tickets. The lady is looking up our seats and checking Hubby's ID when the manager standing next to her looks at me and lets me know that:

OK. Some front row seats have just opened. Now, she (that would be Cher) is going to be looking right at us and if we have energy and are excited about this show he'd change out our seats. I asked him if he was kidding and, no, he was not. At this point I am so excited I don't know whether to squeal or cry. I really don't quote Rachel Zoe that much, but at that moment, I die. DIE.

We're escorted to our front row, center seats by a nice lady who says we got the "catcher seats" (if she falls, we catch her). The fan sitting next to me introduces us to some other people in the front and second row. One of the dancers did in fact fall in my husbands lap but it was staged.

Well the show was amazing. Cher was beautiful and put on a fabulous show. Her toenail polish looked like a pretty coral and her eyeshadow was sparkly pink. I was so beside myself the entire show I seriously almost cried a couple times. Anyway, I realize this is not a Cher fan blog and I am here to post my outfit but I just had to say.

So, anyway, here's what I wore:


ATL dress, Target peeptoe pumps, Anthropologie earrings, Michele watch, LV Eva clutch





Hubby was having some camera difficulties

I have one more Vegas outfit to post, along with some city & shopping venue pics & the wax museum. Total touristy fun.

OOTD 9.22.09: Vegas Shopping


Alright I am still on Cloud 9 from those fabulous seats at that fabulous Cher concert so more on that later.  Also, I've received a couple of blog awards from two wonderful bloggers who definitely deserve mention in a separate post so I also have that coming up.  

But first - just wanted to post on the simple little travel outfits that I wore on our super fun trip to Las Vegas this week.  Here's Tuesday:


Talbots blouse, ATL pants, TB Revas, LV Speedy, Target necklace

yes I know it was in the 90's in that desert town but gotta have a cardi for that chilly hotel/shop/restaurant air
