Bottle Full of Veuve Cliquot at Tryst Nightclub in Las Vegas @ Dream Sequins

This past weekend, eight rambunctious girls hit the scene in Las Vegas. Most of us stayed at the Wynn, which we booked through Hotwire for a steal. It was my first time staying at the hotel, and while I was impressed by the lounge and pool areas, my room's decor left a little to be desired. Perhaps the suites are a little more impressive!

For dinner on Friday night, we had a multi-course dinner at a charming restaurant called Rosemary's off the strip. It has a cozy, anti-glitzy decor, which made us feel right at home, and I highly recommend their $55 prix fixe, three-course menu. After a few glasses of wine, I started to swoon when they played Arcade Fire's Funeral in the bar area. A nice change from the pumping techno they seem to favor in restaurants on the strip!

After dinner, we had a few drinks at Tao nightclub at the Venetian, which was overflowing with douchebags. I didn't really enjoy all the dancefloor groping and the swaying crowds who kept bumping into us at the bar- ew.

On Saturday, we hit the Canyon Ranch spa club at the Venetian, which was kind of a cattle call. My massage was just what the doctor ordered after a long evening. For dinner on our final night, we went to Lotus of Siam, another restaurant off the strip, where we had authentic Thai cuisine, wine from a Wine Spectator rated wine list and a flurry of dishes, with a bill of about $25 a piece. Highly recommended!

The club on our last night out was Tryst at the Wynn, which we loved due to its boutique size and the giant waterfall outside. We danced up a storm, and wound up playing a few hands of blackjack before calling it a night at 5 am. The blackjack tables at the Wynn, incidentally, was where
this strange incident happened where an inebriated couple asked if they could borrow my shoes. My shoes were my new beige/gold Emma Cook for Topshop platforms that you can see in these photos.

I didn't win any money, but I didn't lose any money either. Pretty decent for Las Vegas! And even though my friend A wound up buying a pair of hot gold Louboutins that weekend, I was good, despite falling for a pair of nude Sergio Rossi platforms at
Shoe In, a multilabel boutique at the Wynn. Sales were decent that weekend-- with many items on sale for 60% off!

Now that I have the weekend travel bug, the Mr. and I have planned a one night getaway to Washington, D.C. this coming weekend. Any suggestions for places to eat or shop?

Ah! Those Emma Cook for TS are amazing! No wonder he wanted to borrow them, haha! :) What an amazing & fun time in Las Vegas! I loved Washington DC, although I can't remember shopping/food places, food-wise what I loved most was a little place I stumbled upon, that had THE most amazing peanut butter extravaganza slice, I have a picture of it, AMAZING! (peanut butter & chocolate is a very American thing, so I don't see it often)...

And shopping wise I'd say the Outlet complex a little drive away from Washington DC itself, the name escapes me...Haven't been there myself, but my mom has, and loved it :)

Have fun!
xx

Sounds like a fantastic time! I loooove Vegas - I'm due for another trip there, I think...it's been too long!

So why did they want to borrow your shoes? I'm intrigued.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Hey D! Looks like you had an amazing time in Vegas! Glad to hear you didn't lose any money while gambling! Thanks for sharing about the Wynn rooms. I've never stayed there before, but good to know. Have fun in D.C.! BTW, I can see why that couple wanted to borrow your shoes.. they're hott! :)

xo, Becs

sounds so wonderful!!! I've been to Vegas twice and I've needed a vacation from the trip both times. I love it there but it's exhausting! Dinners, clubs, dancing for three or four days straight...in my 20s (when I was there) it was easier but I don't know if I could do it today for so many days in a row! :)

As for DC, I lived there years ago and haven't been back since but I always loved Dupont Circle, Georgetown and Adam's Morgan for going out. enjoy and report back!! :)

Hey gorgeous,
wowwwwww, the pictures look like you had sooooooo much fun! :-D PERFECT!
The golden Louboutin's are TDF - well, a woman couldn't ever have enough shoes - I love golden sandals!! Great you didn't lose any money. When I've tried gambling first time I've invested 100 and two hours later stopped with 120... I'm the king of the world! ;)
much love, s.

Hanako66 said...

The Haute-Shopper said...

Great report! I'm glad you had such a terrific time and congrats on getting Sergio Rossi heels. I think the brand tends to get overlooked (for a minute I thought the Loubies were yours, but I remembered you weren't too fond of the brand ;-)

Re: guy wanting to borrow your shoes. I actually thought of you today, because I had a similar incidence with a psycho woman who wanted to buy my scarf. Just posted about it. The only thing scarier than drunk people are sales-crazy ones.

♥Jozee said...

Love it! I believe the Wynn is probably the nicest hotel in Vegas now, right? I'm surprised you were underwhelmed with the decor though I'm sure it's got a heavy dose of minimalism (i dunno just guessing!)

Anyway, looks like you had a great time :D
