Fancy Pants

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am totally obsessed with these trousers! I have so little reason to wear them at home but I’m determined to find one because they’re just AWESOME! Even in Las Vegas (the city of sequins) they attracted the odd (WHAT is she wearing look) so imagine how people would react here.. but I just don’t care. They’re lined so comfier than you would imagine but pretty heavy so there’s the constant risk of showing your pants..but again.. all worth it. This outfit also saw the first outing for two recent purchases I was really excited about, my Christian Louboutin Ron Rons which I bought in London in February and saved for the trip and my Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody. This was really difficult to track down so I ended up having it sent from Nordstrom to my hotel to be sure I’d get my hands on it while in the states (where it’s MUCH cheaper!) and it didn’t disappoint. It’s basically a total copy of the Chanel Boy bag but at a teeny fraction of the cost. Beautiful, soft leather and black hardware.. It’s love! I’ll do a full post on it when I’ve worn it for a while and can tell you how it holds up.. I’ve heard the black hardware chips so I’m nervous of that but we’ll see.

This evening we went to The Venetian to see Diana Ross in concert – she was AMAZING! – and more than any other hotel it struck me how bizarre it is to have such a luxurious setting broken up by the lights of slot machines and roar of gamblers. Obviously Casinos are what Vegas is all about but they feel really out of place in some hotels.


After the show we met up with Chris & Emma at The Linq right by the Flamingo and Emma and I couldn’t resist some photos in front of the iconic neon.. Just a quick glance around me gives you an idea of how overdressed I was but for me the beauty of Las Vegas is you can be whatever you want to be. There are people walking around at all hours in bikinis and others in evening gowns, it’s the strangest place in the world but lots of fun!

    I was there a week ago and wore sequin pants that I found on sale at urban outfitters and I felt overdressed as well. Even at a dance club But I love them so much I didn’t care!

    You didn’t look overdressed at all! It’s Vegas! The shoes and bag are amazing also; next time I’m in Nordstrom I’m going to look for the bag.

    Assumed the casino links where the sponsored ones, but the link to your bag under what I’m wearing links to a different bag on amazon?

      the casino links are paid (however I may be removing them) anything else you spot that’s odd is usually something called skimwords.. I actually totally forgot to link up my outfit section but I have something installed that randomly picks out words and links to affiliate sites. I’m not a bit fan of it cause it can link totally irrelevant stuff but I’m not entirely sure how to turn it off lol.

    Sounds like you had an incredible trip. I would die to see Diana Ross live, you lucky thing! And you look wonderful. Don’t worry at all about being overdressed. Who cares!

    I was so devestated when Little Black Book of Style closed 🙁 was saving all my pennies for this bag from her! Is there anywhere else in the UK where you would recommend?

      I know 🙁 me too
      Shopbop is reputable but not cheap and there are hidden fees. I’ve ordered from Nordstrom to the UK and you pay all of your fees up front so before you pay you know exactly what it will cost with no customs issues this side.. plus it’s generally cheaper to buy US stuff from America so anything you pay extra is basically what you’ve saved.. only it’s WAY easier to find what you want over there

    I think those pants are SOOOO glamorous and I love the way you’ve styled them! Looks so classy. I would never think to buy them but the way you have styled them has made me think I could pull it off…. I am a massive sequin fan. Also, those shoes are just heaven, ahhh….

      they’re such a casual style and as the lining is silk I totally forget I’m wearing sequins lol

    I love those trousers so much! I’ve been looking on eBay for a pair myself. ^_^

  10. 3 May, 2015 / 11:41 am

    Sounds like a silly question, but I am eyeing a pair of these on eBay at the moment and was wondering if they are true to size? There is a size 6 currently, I’m usually a 6-8 and wondered if they have a little stretch to the waist?
