Electro Swing Toronto’s Vintage Hollywood

We were at it again folks!

Electro Swing Toronto’s event this month was attended by moi and several TVSers (Toronto Vintage Society) to work the door and help judge the best dressed competition that is held each time an Electro Swing event happens.   Tonight’s theme:  VINTAGE HOLLYWOOD!

DJ Medicineman (founder of Electro Swing in Toronto) often recruits TVS to help him with vintage related things – and so far these collaborations have been fantastic!!!  To see the other ones I’ve attended, click here , here and here.

#MyVegasStyle

Now…I’ve never been to Vegas myself.  I was close last summer when I was a California Girl for a week (see my Wanderlust page for a few pics of that trip).  Sadly my trip was too short to include a jaunt to down to The Gambling Capital.  Vegas is definitely on my travel-list…and I would certainly need to pack weeks in advance to make sure I was Vegas Ready when it came to Daytime and Nighttime looks.

I was approached by the Content Director of Vegas.com to participate in their current blog challenge: #MyVegasStyle.

Challenge accepted!!! 😉

 

Vegas Style: Daytime

I’m usually for fashion over function.  Buuuuut for daytime looks in desert heat, my vote is for fashion with function!  Light, easy fabrics that could easily take you to a nice lunch spot, like at Aria’s Lemongrass resturant, and would keep you comfortable if you wanted to explore the sights of Vegas on foot (which would mean swapping heels for fun flats and sandals).  Take a look at these collages of daytime #myvegasstyle – including a ton of sun hats, my newest obsession!  I included a personal #ootd from a previous post that I think would totally fit into this category of Vegas Daytime Style too!

Swimwear

Frankly, any of the swimwear from Monif C. would totally fall into #MyVegasStyle category! Love! Love! Love!

This Peru Fringe Swimsuit would definitely be in my carry-on to Vegas.  A dream come true for chesty chicks like me, and the sexy fringe details help distract from any thigh insecurities.   Sexy! Brilliant! Love!

Vegas Style: Nighttime  

Titty City – I would definitely play up the cleavage in Sin City! I think for a nice dinner followed by a show and gambling I could finally rock my Valentina Illusion Dress from Kiyonna.  I think this number should bring someone a bit of luck, gambling if not otherwise…don’t you think? 😉

Leopard – I’m wearing this faux wrap Joseph Ribkoff dress a few weeks ago for a girlfriend’s birthday celebration.  All three of us look like we were Vegas Nighttime Ready already, don’t you think?  Meow indeed!!! 😉  Maybe we could wear these outfits to club Haze in the Aria Hotel.

Sequins – Where better to wear a glittery number if not in the “Entertainment Capital of the World”!  I would def pack and rock my sequins tank and dress, depending on the time of year, I’d swap the tall boots for sexy pumps for nighttime fun in Vegas.  Check out my previous post, How to Wear Sequins for other ideas to incorporate into a Vegas style look 🙂

Little Black Dress (LBD) – You can’t really go wrong with this approach for Vegas Nightlife.

I’m thinking Audrey classy, not clubby-trashy….
