For boutique lovers like myself, Boutiqueaholics in Las Vegas has everything you love in one container. Literally. It’s in Container Park, which is a fun retail, dining and entertainment development in Downtown Las Vegas.

Boutiqueaholics is a boutique within a boutique. Several fashion lines and stores from around the world sell their trendy pieces under one roof. Clothing from Lili Boutique, one of my favorite local shops, can also be found here. Other lines include Sugarhill from London, Growze from Los Angeles, LuxC Closet from Miami, Babel Fair from New York City and Hey Gorgeous from Orange County.

Not only are the clothes adorable, but so is the decor! I love the simple, vintage style. Using the books about high-end designers to display jewelry is such a creative idea and adds a chic touch.

Whether you are looking for a fancy frock to wear out on the town or a casual, oversized sweater, you can find it here. I love the jeweled neckline on this pale pink dress. It’s right on trend with the pastel color palette that is popular this spring.

This lace top with the subtle, sweetheart detail is a fun, feminine piece from Sugarhill. The Eiffel Tower print tank is another piece from this London-based boutique. Doesn’t it just make you want to be a jetsetter and eat colorful macarons in France ?

Floral is my favorite trend this season. The patterned sleeves take this cropped bomber jacket from being simple to making a fashion statement. It would look great paired with a basic white tank, distressed jeans and d’orsay flats or heels. These unique styles are definitely worth checking out next time you are in Las Vegas.

Tomorrow is the big day! From fancy to festive and everything in between, these four outfits are perfect for a variety of Thanksgiving plans.

For a casual gathering at home with family and friends, cozy leggings (hello, elastic waistband!) paired with an oversized sweater and infinity scarf creates a stylish, yet laid-back look. The sequin elbow patches glam up this basic sweater and add a trendy touch.

Heading to a festive, fancy soirée? The gold embellishments amp up this little black dress. Show a little skin – but not too much. This tight, short dress is balanced with the long sleeves and high neckline, which creates a sophisticated style. Accessorize with dangly earrings and heeled booties or pumps for a glamorous look.

Friendsgiving calls for more of a funky, relaxed vibe. Layering a feminine lace dress with an edgy leather jacket definitely achieves that look. It’s all in the details – the studs on the jacket and turquoise ring bring this outfit together.

‘Tis the season for sparkles! Sequins aren’t just for New Year’s Eve. As LaurenConrad.com shows, a chunky, knit sweater can dress down a metallic skirt. Complete the look with tights and booties for an effortless ensemble.

I hope everyone has an amazing (and trendy) Thanksgiving! :)

Fall Fashion Show with Lili Boutique

20131020-150830.jpgOne of my favorite work events to attend is Fabrik Fridays, a weekly fashion show at SHe by Morton’s.

With gorgeous dresses, trendy accessories and fresh designs, Vegas fashionistas are in for a treat. 20131020-150835.jpgLeather is my favorite trend this fall. The mesh cutouts on these leggings make them extra edgy. Complete the look with a high-low graphic tank or t-shirt and some studded accessories. 20131020-150841.jpgSHe’s bringing sexy back.

The sheer sleeves and plunging neckline is subtly sexy. A black and white mini skirt is very versatile and can be worn with black tights when temperatures start dropping.20131020-150924.jpgI think we can all agree that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion faux pas of the past. This lovely lace dress looks stylish in any season.

Vegas Fashion

What non-locals think I wear vs. what I actually wear…

vegas
Living in Las Vegas has drastically changed my style. Mostly because it isn’t appropriate to wear sweaters when it’s 115 degrees… So long Seattle wardrobe. Before I moved here, when I heard “Vegas,” the style that came to mind was tight dresses, short skirts, high heels and lots of sequins. However, I quickly realized that Vegas is much larger than just the strip. Obviously I knew people didn’t wear clubbing attire 24/7, but I didn’t realize how much the heat affects your clothing choices. I’ve always preferred boots and flats to flip flops, but pools and hot weather has changed my opinion. They are a necessity.
When it comes to clothing the looser, lighter and less (to some degree) the better! By less I mean that maxi skirts and jean jackets don’t work in this heat, but we’ll leave the skimpy clothing to the dancers on the Strip. Simple shorts, breezy tanks and flip flops are perfect for running errands and being out and about in the sunshine. Guess I need to do some shopping since my Washington wardrobe isn’t going to work. Darn… ;)

Bringing Sexy Back

open back
Super-short skirts and plunging V-neck tops are a thing of the past. An open back is the new, subtle way to show some skin! It gives an unexpected peek without revealing too much. With a higher neckline in the front, but a revealing cut in the back you will look sexy yet tasteful! It’s a trend that works with everything from evening gowns and sundresses to chiffon tops and basic T-shirts. This chic and sophisticated style is a must-have for your closet this spring!
