vegas interlude

Many a time my fellow Angelenos have lauded the proximity of adult wonderland, Las Vegas, to our home city.  A simple flight or three to four hour drive and Los Angeles residents are transported into a round-the-clock party, shopping, and dining haven.  I’d passed through Vegas a few times for concerts and on family trips but I had yet to enjoy Vegas in a typical twenty-something, Hangover-type, you-only-live-once way.  Well, as a belated birthday celebration/going away party for my friend Caroline, we went.  We saw.  Vegas conquered.  That’s also why there are more cellphone pictures/badly lit photos here than actual camera photos.  Since returning I’ve been cooped up with my birthday gift from Caroline, the Sartorialist’s eponymous book of photos which came with a lovely birthday card covered in stickers.  You know your friend loves you when she covers your birthday card with Lisa Frank and Pokemon stickers.

I’m pictured wearing my flashy, supremely comfortable new Joan heels from Alexander Wang, an Alexander Wang bodycon dress (on sale and super flattering in person), Jewelmint Fringe cuffs, a Sandro blouse, and a Theyskens’ Theory mini which will definitely be the star of a future post.

summer leather = logic

Because everyone wears black leather in 100 degree weather, no?  You don’t see my logic?  Kidding aside, this Alexander Wang leather trench was the big splurge of my European adventures.  Despite being marked down, it was still a pretty penny.  However, the fact that it goes with practically everything in my closet and can also be worn as a dress made it worthwhile.  Also pictured here are the very awesome Shakuhachi platform wedges that I was hoping would go on sale on Urban.  Lo and behold, they did.  Although they are no longer available there, I think you can still get the same style through my favorite online shoe vendor Solestruck.
