Wardrobe Wednesday - Mad Men in VEGAS - Help me pack!

I will be heading off to Sin City in 2 weeks, and I need your help!  I have no idea what to pack because I have never been there before.  Usually when I travel, I have an idea of what we will be doing, and I go from there.  However, Vegas seems very fancy with all of the hotels and casinos.  What should I pack?  I want to be comfortable in the desert.

One thing I know for sure, I will need a bathing suit.  I plan on spending some major time here...the Wynn Encore's pool...

My friends have all been sporting little two piece numbers this summer.  I am a little more conservative when it comes to swim suits, and I usually buy a La Blanca suit.  In my opinion, they offer the best coverage, and they don't necessarily look like a "grandma" suit.  This year, I have been reading how the T.V. show Mad Men is inspiring a 1960s reinvention of the female curves!  Simply put, curves are coming back ladies!  Which is really a relief because mine never left. LOL! So, if you visit their website, you can actually "Mad Men Yourself"...here are the results...big hips, small waiste, big hair, and I threw in the martini for fun. Of course I choose capris - they are God's gift to us short legged women - no alterations needed :)

Trying to chanel this MAD way of thinking, here is the bathing suit I bought for Vegas.  It is a Kenneth Cole Reaction two peice, but check out the hip coverage! Don't worry people, I am well aware that the suit doesn't quite look like this on me.  I give the suit a totally different vibe - that 60's vibe. I feel good about my stomach.  I love the color and the ruffles, and I really like that the skirt bottom actaully doesn't shorten my legs like most bathing suit skirts do.

with 25% off this suit came to $85

I will grab a straw hat and pair it with last year's white VS Cover up!

Give me some ideas of what else I need to pack for Vegas!  I am thinking Dean Martin and the Rat Pack 1960s Vegas! Do I need fancy dress clothes or does casual rein in Vegas?  Please help a sister out!

  1. Ok so from the point of view of someone who has been to Vegas about 20 times (no joke it used to only be a 2 hour drive from us) I would say bring dresses.. lots of dresses (I love dresses)

    I LOVE the suit you choose too so cute!

    I would bring a couple fancy dresses if you plan on going out to a club or dancing or even just for walking around in the evening.. But its Vegas anything goes, I always make sure I can fit flip flops in my purse because the amount of walking you will do is crazy!

    You will see it all in Vegas.. it SUPER hot there right now so pack accordingly..
