Wishlist Wednesday: All That Glitters

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

This week's Wishlist Wednesday is all about glitter, baby!
I'm in the mood for it because my girls and I are heading off to Las Vegas on Friday for a weekend of mischief!

I still haven't made up my mind about what to pack...
but I'm definitely leaning towards something wackier than I would normally wear for a night out in New York...

How do you wear glitter?

Black sequin tunic dress from Ashish for Topshop and satin and lizard Nicholas Kirkwood Autumn/Winter 2008 platforms @ Dream Sequins
Tunic: Ashish for Topshop; my soulmate shoes: Nicholas Kirkwood

Blue sequin and black silk shirt from Falls, black Topshop harem pants and satin and lizard Nicholas Kirkwood Autumn/Winter 2008 platforms @ Dream Sequins
Blouse: The Falls; harem pants: Topshop; shoes: Kirkwood

Matte dark silver dress from Hong Kong market and beige and gold Emma Cook for Topshop platform shoes @ Dream Sequins
Tunic as dress: no name from Hong Kong market; new soulmate shoes: Emma Cook for Topshop

Blue ruffled romper from MINT by Jodi Arnold and beige and gold Emma Cook for Topshop platform shoes @ Dream Sequins
Playsuit: Mint by Jodi Arnold; shoes: Emma Cook for Topshop

Skeletal print zippered Topshop tunic and silver Diesel shoes
Tunic: Topshop; shoes: Diesel from years ago

I try to do a girls' weekend every year. Two years ago, it was Paris, and just last year, it was Las Vegas. This year, due to ease of travel (there are friends coming out from the West Coast) and budget constraints (we got a great rate at our luxe hotels), we decided to return to the scene of last year's crimes (shhh don't tell the husbands and boyfriends).

Any recommendations for eight rambunctious ladies in Vegas? The spa is booked. We're looking into restaurants, shopping and dancing spots.

AsianCajuns said...

Hope you and your ladies have a blast!

Dream Sequins said...

Carlotta: Thanks! Glitter and sparkle on summer nights... that sounds nice :)

Savvy Mode: Thanks. The ruffles are a bit overwhelming, but I'm working with them.

Annie: One of those anonymous finds in a HK market. Pretty cool.

pigtails: Thanks ladies! Love my shoes, too.

Roarclothing: I haven't had an occasion to wear it out yet. Maybe Vegas? :D

Slices: Admittedly, those harem pants are less extreme than others I've seen. Thank you :D

nookie: Ooh glitter accessories. That's taking it to the next level!

modediktat: Aw. I'm sorry to hear about the sad moments... Those things happen. Glitter and blue skinnies. I might have to work that!

Song of Style: Thanks for your comment.

Shrimpton: I know. I just got the shoes recently and I know I've got to wear them somewhere!

AsianCajuns: Thanks hon :) I will!

WendyB said...

Amazing outfits! The ruffle shoes are hot.

Karen said...

girl you can rock anything you look awsome!!

i really love the third and second outfit

Chessa! said...

gorgeous! I love all these looks on you. You look amazing. as for Vegas...I was there the last time 5 years ago so I'm afraid I'm no help...have so much fun!!!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Love all these outfits! But dare I say the first is probably my least favorite? I love the sequins, but I'm not a fan of long-sleeves on a short dress. I really like the harem look (#2) and the last one. Oh, and fab shoes of course! How can I not like an outfit that includes Kirkwood!

Btw, I never did see that Vicky Christina Barcelona movie. Is it good? I think the combo of Scarlett and Woody deterred me, though I adore Penelope.

Couture Carrie said...

Love alllll these fabulous looks ~ hope they're all going in the suitcase for the Vegas trip!!


thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

Have fun in Las Vegas. My sorority sisters and I going on a trip this weekend too. We are going to Atlanta. Be safe and don't let your man see those sexy Vegas outfits.

Tiffany said...

wow! all your outfits are gorgeous and perfect for Vegas. Love the ruffle-y shoes!

I just came back and highly recommend going to The Bank at the Bellagio, we had a great time! We also went to Lavo which was fun. Restaurant wise we went to Boa Steakhouse which was fantastic.

Shopping if fabulous right now as all the designers are having great sales! Have fun!

The Socialite said...

sparkle & shine - nothing is funner than a shiny dress!

Pop Champagne said...

oooh hot outfits!! Mmm I went to Tao a while ago when I was in Vegas, it was pretty good. I hear theres frequent celebrity sitings there too if you're into that ;)

And if it's for 8 ladies... go see thunder from down under. it's awesome!

Kristin said...

That blue sequin blouse is incredible. Such great looks!!

InnyVinny said...

Olympic Gardens...but only if you guys are brave. LOL

And you look stunning in all of these. Love the sequins. Very Vegas-ready.

InnyVinny said...

Oh, and co-sign on The Bank at the Bellagio. Very nice club.

MollyCake said...

spearmint rhino. yeah, it's a strip club but damn if they don't have great cocktails and plenty of dudes to buy them for you.

Highdee said...

Thanks again for your wonderful comments, all!

Karen: You're very kind. Thanks for your visit.

Chessa: Vegas seems to change rather quickly every year. I'll have to report back on my finds!

Kristin: Thank you! It's from a new label; I adore it.

InnyVinny: Whoa. What is Olympic Gardens? I'm googling that right now. BTW thanks for your suggestions!

MollyCake: I'm surprised that boys would buy girls drinks at a strip club; especially if they already have their eye candy. LOL

Highdee: I guess you can't disappoint with a name like Dream Sequins!

Hanako66: Oh yes. I may be documenting most of my trip. Most. What happens in Vegas, LOL

Eyeliah SS: Thanks! My husband thinks sequins are a bit too much to wear, even in NY, but I'm rocking them out. I don't care!

Jenny: Thanks honey! And thanks for your visit!

deka: Yeah it's pretty much for the Vegas trip ;)

Alice: Thanks for your visit! Yea I'm obsessing over my next pair of Kirkwoods. And I love the ruffles on these shoes. A bit hard to walk in but you gotta suffer for fashion ;)

clandestinechic: I'll be sure to post photos! I'm so excited!

janettaylor: Added you to my links list!

Claire: A selfish part of me purchased them because I believed Emma Cook was going out of business, which was a RUMOR!
