Las Vegas: Casino Fashion

I've been lucky enough to have visited Las Vegas twice in recent years - we actually spent our honeymoon there - and it is undoubtedly a place like no other.  The casinos are stunning and a spectacle that everyone should get to see in their lifetime.  However I have to admit, playing the tables at a casino still gives me anxiety! I'm definitely more at home playing the machines (plus - I find the games way more fun!).  If the thought of playing at the real-life tables fills you with dread or the rules of blackjack escape you, you can always click here to hone your skills at websites who are part of the responsible gaming trust.

We stayed at the Aria back in 2014 and I have to admit, as it was home to my first Vegas experience, I will definitely always have a soft spot or it.  Our room was phenomenal and super modern with a huge tub, a separate shower and a double sink situation - *bathroom goals*

This year we went back for our honeymoon and were treated to an upgrade at The Cosmopolitan. The hotel has a fashion and art theme (right up my street) and we definitely got lost a few times exploring! We were lucky enough to have a balcony looking over the strip and Bellagio fountains - it was magical!

When considering 'casino fashion' pretty much anything goes, however I like to mirror the opulence of my surroundings in what I wear - after all, when do you get the chance otherwise?!  I found this green velvet treasure whilst rummaging through the racks at T K Maxx and instantly fell in love.  The decadent fabric in this rich green colour seemed the perfect match for what I was looking for. The wrap detail makes the dress super flattering and the wrist-length sleeves would definitely keep you warm in the air conditioned environment.
