What's In My Bag: Vegas Edition!

Well here's something fun. I'm off to Vegas today!

Shockingly, this time I'm not going with my mother (although in a not-at-all-surprising turn of events, she will be there with her friends too). Nope, instead I'm going with a big group of people - I think nearly thirty of us in all! Rami's friend Amir is turning 30 and to celebrate, he invited a whole bunch of people out to help him ring in the big 3-0. I haven't been to Vegas with that many people since AEPi spring formal in 2005 (a trip that shall live in infamy) - so I'm really excited!

We booked these tickets way back in August and I've been looking forward to it ever since. We're staying at the MGM, where I've never stayed, and doing a couple big group dinners which I'm sure will be filled with lots of shenanigans. Plus, our friends are bringing their baby who I adore more than anything so I can't wait to play with her for three days straight in between my marathons at the slot machines and occasional dips into Chanel to drool over the new bags. Viva Las Vegas indeed.

Anyway - as always, I put together a little peek into what I'm bringing along with me!

ONE:
I haven't stopped using this leopard print calf-hair clutch since I got it for Hanukkah. I'm obsessed.

TWO:
If Vegas isn't the place to wear your sequined blazer, then I don't know what it. This one is from Target - only $40!

THREE:
The world's most comfortable wedges, by Pour La Victoire! I own them in black and nude and wear them all the time.

FOUR:
Pretty pink lips, courtesy of Chanel

FIVE:
I've been looking for a new denim shirt for months now - I just found this chambray shirt with a subtle geometric print in Gap and I can't wait to wear it with colored jeans!

SIX:
I got a manicure yesterday with Essie's "To Buy or Not to Buy" on my nails. It's an opalescent pinkish purple - so pretty.

SEVEN:
Is there anything better than a new bag? Another Hanukkah gift - this Joie two-toned tote is big but light - perfect for schlepping around all my nonsense every day!

EIGHT:
My mom and I were browsing in Zara when we spied these studded booties - we both shrieked, immediately tried them on, and fell in love. They're "mullet" booties - business in the front, party in the back!

NINE:
I'm thinking of wearing all black out one night - I'll add colored accessories like this great mint and gold bangle to snazz up my look.

TEN:
I picked this up at H&M yesterday - it's a combination of a cardigan and a blazer. I love it because it's super soft and even though it looks sweet, it's got all those little studs near the color and shoulders to toughen it up.

ELEVEN:
Big turquoise studs surrounded with rhinestones - what's not to love? And they're only $30!

I am obsessed with my Claire Vivier clutch too! Such good quality/ reasonable price.
I need to try those wedges! They are adorable, and sadly I am terrible in heels.

Deets on the Gap chambray! It has been in my shopping cart for weeks!

And the other stuff is amazing too!
