We are very excited to have been approached by to style the #UltimateVegasStyle for a typical day in Las Vegas - from walking the strip, shopping in the fashion malls to a super lunch and finally an evening of cocktails and entertainment. We've really enjoyed imagining what we would like to do and see and would firmly recommend visiting the deals page on if you have some serious Vegas planning to do. 

Anne H has been to Vegas on a couple of occasions, but as regular readers may know, Anne C was due to holiday there last month until an unfortunate accident en route meant she had to return home early, so she never made it there.

However, these are the sorts of outfits we would most definitely wear if we were there!  And who knows, Anne C may make it there next year!

Daytime at the Venetian

For our virtual Vegas day we have  taken inspiration from the Venetian Hotel and envisioned ourselves browsing the Grand Canal Shoppes soaking up all the Italian ambience before heading for brunch at the Buddy V's Ristorante to savour their amazing Italian-American menu.  
Having both travelled to Italy before so they have gone for some colour to reflect the vibrancy of the country, and both outfits are ideal for following brunch with more shopping and even a coffee at the Tintoretto Restaurant and Bakery!


Anne C is wearing casual for comfort here - and all on a budget (with the exception of the sunglasses).  The white cotton trousers are very versatile for summer styling, and these are stretchy fabric, so great for tucking into lunch and keeping comfortable all day. These are by Florence and Fred from  The red suede shoes are super comfortable and the perfect height for when you're on your feet all day - plus they are stylish and on trend this season.  They are also a budget buy from Florence and Fred at Tesco - as is the white perspex tote bag, bought last summer, which also features a white zipped clutch inside which can be used separately or within the tote to zip up those valuables. The good news is it has been updated this year in a slightly different shape here, so still available - and it can also double up as a beach bag.

She has teamed it with a red layered chiffon top with a glitzy jewelled neckline which is a George at Asda purchase. This would also be great for evening wear with black trousers and high heels.

The earrings are a craft fair buy, the cuff was a gift and the watch is from Marks & Spencer.  The sunglasses are Bvlgari which she bought 18 months ago, but are still available from online retailers, though not on the Bvlgari site.


Anne H outfit is also relaxed and colourful, combining Zara basic linen trousers with a drawstring waist (a must after all that eating) with a colourful silk top that she purchased from BCBGMaxazria a few years ago.  She has combined with stack heel Jakob shoes from Dune ideal for walking.... and she says there is a lot of walking to be done in Vegas to fully appreciate all the wonderful hotels and attractions.  


The necklace was a Christmas gift and the blue clutch is positively ancient -  both borrowed from Anne C and such a perfect colour match, she might not get them back!  The silver bangle is from The White Company and the gentleman's watch is from Tag Heuer as Anne favours a larger watch.



We doubt anywhere says glamour quite like The Bellagio, again with an Italian twist - after all the Italians are so very stylish.  We have chosen black for our signature evening wear and will start our evening with an exquisite meal at Le Cirque where our outfits will meet the strict dress code of dressy and elegant, but not detract from the brilliant colours of this lakeside destination. Trying our hand on the casino floor will be the pre-cursor to a night at the Hyde nightclub where we can appreciate the amazing design of Phillippe Starck from our vantage point overlooking the Fountains of Bellagio.  What could be better?  

The chiffon black dress can be worn for an evening out and accessorised with heels and diamante to add extra glamour.  The dress was bought from her good friend Liz Wright who owns Simply Devine, a fantastic destination shop mostly selling glamorous occasion hats but with a few key dresses such as prom outfits or mother of the bride.

Anne has teamed with black satin court shoes trimmed with diamante chains on the high heels, which are ones she has had for years. Maybe she has gone a little overboard with the glitz - but hey in Vegas, anything goes!

Her watch is by Swarovski from a previous season, but they still have plenty of gorgeous watches to choose from.

#Ultimate Vegas Style

The three matching single diamante bangles, black shamballa bracelet and statement necklace and earrings were from a craft fair, while the two finger ring was stolen from her daughter!!  The diamante bag is from Accessorize and although no longer available, they still have a great selection of evening clutch bags.


Anne H's simple black V neck dress has the added design element of a chiffon hem, which lifts it from being too plain, and was purchased in the Cos sale. The addition of the diamante necklace and bracelet add the added sparkle that is so Vegas appropriate.  Like Anne C she has 'borrowed' something from her daughter's wardrobe, in this case the vertiginous Alexander McQueen heels which really make a statement.  


Anne's pretty black and gold evening purse is a vintage find and the diamante stacking rings are by Buckley Jewellery with similar ones still available, while the bracelet was from an independent boutique. The necklace is a cheap and cheerful purchase from Primark - proving that you can mix and match budget buys with high end, high street, and designer to look fabulous.
