Vegas baby! Style Nation 2011

16 Mar
Style Nation 2011
Two days of fun!

I spent last weekend in Las Vegas for a style blogger meet-up with eight other ladies, including Beverly of Style Underdog, Stephanie of The Loudmouth and Yvonne of Fashion Recon. It was fabulous fun! I hopped on a plane right after work. Things looked up immediately as I made friends and chatted with my plane neighbor the entire flight. I had won a limo ride to the Flamingo, too, which my newfound friend and I shared. This girl got to travel in style.

I was the last one to arrive and join the girls at Margaritaville. Yvonne spotted me first, we immediately recognized each other! She had brought me a special gift, a skirt she made me as a thank you gift for helping her with her blog header. This incredibly hot woman has the biggest heart.

I was introduced to the rest of the crew: Stephanie, who’s just as beautiful and delightful in person, her equally adorable friend, Bryn, the incredibly witty glamazon, Beverly and her wonderful friends, Cynthia, Melissa and Stephanie, and Yvonne’s sweetest friend, Sissie. I’ll admit right now that I got caught up in the excitement and did not take nearly enough photos. An outfit change later, we were given the VIP treatment at Marquee by Bryn’s friend, Troy.

The next day we reconvened for lunch at Mon Ami Gabi. Thankfully, I do have a single photo of most us together. It was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for sitting outside and people watching.

Afterwards, we strolled and shopped, stopping in to experience the new flagship H&M at Caesar’s Forum shops. After a short rest, we separated into smaller groups and got dinner. Some of us hit Voodoo Lounge for a spell before joining others at Jet for the rest of the night. I even got to run into my new plane friend again, we had a great time!

It was so much fun to experience these blog personalities in real life. The women were beautiful, witty, adorable, glamorous, fun and intelligent. Everyone had their own distinct style. We enjoyed a fair amount of camaraderie. The weekend ended much too soon but this girl eventually had to get her sleep!

Mad props to all those who participated in making this happen, including the wonderful Vahni, which is how I found out about this event in the first place. Thank you Beverly, Yvonne and Tairalyn, who couldn’t attend due to being pregnant.

Our swag sponsors really came through, too. Thanks to: Westover JewelryYou Be CheekyBentley’s TeasJoe FreshWe Love Colors, and Darling Digits.

Following are a few additional photos I took that captured Vegas through my eyes.

    I adore that last collection of photos, Fabienne. I took many of people and not enough of the scenery! Did you get to spend your Sunday perusing the city like you wanted? :)

    And, one more thing… HAHAHAHA @ that photo of us at Mon Ami! I’m totally holding a huge chunk of bread. LOVE IT!

    Okay, that wasn’t the last thing. Is it rude if I invite myself up to visit you sometime? I wanna see the house in the clouds in person. And you are wonderful.

    Bev in sequins! Did something happen in Vegas that she’s trying to keep a secret now that’s she left Style Nation?

    Looks like you all had loads of fun.

    I commented on the other girls that were on the style event and mentioned how jealous I was of the meet up. I really wish there were more like this in the UK. I’ve also always wanted to visit Vegas.

      Sounds like you might have to take a trip abroad. And just think, you + a bunch of women, it would be a ridiculously good time!

    Thanks for sharing some glimpses of the meetup! Oh, I would be so intimidated by a meetup with most fashion bloggers. Like I told Vahni once, I’d be planning my outfits for a month, and I’d have to spend a while in a salon before heading to the meetup! How cool that you got to meet Stephanie, and I love your Vegas imagery.

      Lol! I totally went back and forth on outfits. Then I ended up wearing things differently anyway. You know, it was Vegas. After all, anything goes!

    Ah what a good time this looks! It seems especially poignant now that I know Beverly the Style Underdog is no longer blogging. Really wished I could have made it.

    If you are looking to buy a desktop PC for your
    home it is likely you will want it to perform a variety of tasks from basic things like sending emails and word processing to more complex tasks like downloading music and streaming video from the internet.

    We guarantee your satisfaction, and we’ll make your event
    special and memorable for an affordable price. But Alfredo’s death has released him from this promise.
