Ok, so I’m not REALLY going to Vegas. But how to dress for Vegas is something I feel like a lot of you guys have experienced at some point. Maybe not you Europeans…
well for those who are unfamiliar – Las Vegas is this magical land where ugly men hit on you, slightly less ugly men take your money (if you’re no good at poker), and the non-ugly men… are gay.
That didn’t really make it seem any different than where I live now. Hmm… ok well (1) It’s in the desert (2) There are giant hotels in the shape of lions, castles, and pyramids (3) Everyone is about 75x sluttier than me.
Now then… dressing for Vegas!
Lightweight fabrics – My choice is a semi-sheer t-shirt, a non-padded lace bra, and a high-waisted pocket silk mini (pictured left). I hate padded bras in humid weather. It’s like keeping your boobs in an incubator.
Keep it loose – Anything that eliminates extra sweating is OK by me. This t-shirt is two sizes too big, but I like it that way because I don’t want anything to stick to my body. Not cute.
Travel friendly gear – Remember, you’re in the desert. Perhaps you should forgo your patent leather designer handbag and go with something you wouldn’t mind getting a little dusty. A good-looking duffel can also hold the quick change of shoes that will take you from day to night. You don’t have to bring it with you all the time, just check it in at any hotel lobby.
Vegas kitsch – Alright, so I gotta throw in something kitsch-y. Hell, you’re going to Vegas. Not Paris. My choice is this desert-inspired buckle belt thingy. It’s kind of cute, no?
