When I first moved to Las Vegas, the style scene here, admittedly, felt a little foreign for me. I love glamor, yes, but often shy away from the classic approach of glitter, sequins, and all things sparkly. And Vegas is, everything shiny. Being in showbiz in Vegas is also interesting, you have to overdo almost everything, because that’s what people expect when they come to Vegas, an escape onto a made-up adult island of showgirls, draped in jewels, gold lame, and explicit sexuality.
It took me a long time to find my own way to embrace sparkly things. They have turned up in my closet here and there, in easily-handled doses and wearable textures. This outfit has a lot of of shiny components, yet isn’t too much for me. It’s comfortable and cool to survive the Vegas heat.
These old Betsey Johnson shoes are probably my favorite girly sparkly heels. I love that they look like little bows on presents. They definitely put me in a holiday mood even though the weather is so hot.
