♫ Bright light city gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire ♫

Happy 4th of July to my American readers! America is without a doubt number one on my list of ‘Must Visit’ countries. New York, Los Angeles and of course the famous Las Vegas, are all cities I can’t wait to explore. When Vegas.com contacted me to see if I would be interested in compiling a style post for a day spent at the Aria Hotel*, I jumped at the chance. Naturally, this being a fictional visit to the Aria, I went to town with the designer gear and accessories that are definitely out of my price range. Unless I get lucky in the casino that is…

Breakfast and Exploring

Breakfast, for many the most important meal of the day, can be spent in the Jean Philippe Pâtisserie. A floaty dress like this floral Oneness is one trend for summer and meal appropriate as it’s not too constrictive. Paired with Kate Spade cork wedges, a Victoria Beckham bag and Kwiat earrings for a bit of glamour in the morning. To coordinating, on the nails, Essie’s “She Said Yes”, for lips Clinique’s Chubby stick in the shade “Budding Blossom”, a bit of Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer to contour the cheeks, temples and jawline and a light dusting of your favourite colours from Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette on the eyes.

Poolside Lounging
After breakfast and some exploring around the hotel, I’d be straight to one of the amazing pools the Aria has to offer. I love the bright colours of this Hot Anatomy bikini and the tropical floral print. Of course, oversized sunglasses like these Fendi ones are a must. To keep it chic, I’d add a double lined turquoise bracelet, white wedges and a floppy white hat. To match and store all my poolside essentials, a white Michael Kors handbag. Being fair skinned sun cream is vital if I’m at the pool, a lip balm with SPF like the Body Shop’s vitamin E is also handy to have along with a compact shine controlling powder and a bright pink nail like NARS Schiap.
Dinner At Sage in Las Vegas #MyVegasStyle
Dinner time at beautiful Sage Restaurant demands a show stopper. This green Lanvin full length one shoulder dress would be my choice. For a change from my usual taste in silver jewels and accessories, I’d reach for these gold Jimmy Choo strappy sandals, a Trellis Lover gold clutch bag and Carolina Bucci ‘Mirador’ half ball earrings to round off the accessories. For some added drama a red lip like Rihanna’s from MAC, dramatic lashes with Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara and some Chanel no.5 perfume.
Night Out in Las Vegas #MyVegasStyle
If it’s a night out I was after, Haze would be my first choice. What’s a night out with out an LBD? This Herve Leger, black with grey panels and a pair of black Staurt Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals would be my go-to LBD-Shoe combo. To go all out with jewellery, I’d reach for a Tiffany & Co. diamond bracelet and pair of earrings. A black Karen Millen clutch and I’d be ready to party!
