Las Vegas approaches…

…or should that be I’m approaching Vegas?

Whichever way around you wanna look at it, the Vegas extravaganza is almost here and I am uber-excited. I mean, why wouldn’t I be? To give you a taster, I’ve just been invited to check out Forever 21 – opened last summer it boasts 127,000 square feet of department-sized store and spans three stories. Jaysus.

And the second hotel we’re staying in – the Encore – has the only stateside Manolo Blahnik boutique outside of Manhattan. (WOO HOO!)

Seriously. As if I couldn’t get anymore wet-knickered with glee, my “wedding” outfit has just turned up. It is BEYOND cool. Shame I can’t show you until the medium-sized day. Son has been treated to a preview, but he was more interestd in the mechanics of my strapless bra, if I’m honest.

What I can show you are three sneaky peeks of pieces I’ve put on my ‘taking to Vegas’ list…

The Sangria green ruched dress at TK Maxx (this is so “Casino” baby – and the colour is so me):

This mega, cropped, ditsy print shirt at ASOS – if I had a better bum I’d wear it with bikini bottoms and nowt else (around the pool, not in Freemont Street – I’m not up for a Hangover-style arrest scenario).


And deffo the Soul sunglasses by Polaroid – these are the epitome of 70s cool, right? So apt for Viva Las Vegas!

Let me on that plane!!
