Sneaker Addiction

I am completely in love with the designer sneakers that have been popping up all over the place.  Comfort AND fashion are so nice, when you don't feel like wearing your heels.  

I am completely obsessed with this pair of Giuseppe Zanotti snake print sneakers and how Shopbop styled them.  I visit them daily.

Then there's the brand new Missoni for Converse hi tops that were released today for $200 each.  I have a soft spot for those zig zags AND there's flecks of sparkle in them.

I also found these fun, reasonably priced sneakers on Topshop.  Still not sure how I feel about the mesh and people seeing my socks. 

Gah! Decisions, decisions!

Vegas Vacay

Got back from Vegas earlier this week.  Enjoyed spending time with family.  The first night was my one and only lucky night.  I was on my last $3 of money budgeted for gambling that night and this happened...

Then all these pennies came...

My sister joined the party and it was off to Caesar's Palace for a little bit of shopping at Anthropologie.

Then it was time to hit Serendipity and try their famous frozen hot chocolate.  It was a very sweet but cool treat for a warm Vegas day!

Bellagio was gorgeous as usual.  There were tulips and giant bees covered in flowers everywhere.  It was a beautiful spring display.

We hit The Cosmopolitan one night to check out the Wicked Spoon buffet.  The decor of the hotel is ultra cool and modern.

The buffet got a thumbs up from us.  Well worth the $35.  We got there shortly before it opened and there was already a line.  Love the presentation of the food.  Shrimp on grits was a favorite, as well as the gelato bar. 

The next day, we had lunch at Todd English's Olives restaurant at Bellagio. 

The butternut squash ravioli was sweet and tasty.  The picture doesn't look that appetizing, but it was delicious.  The table next to us was having the flat bread, which looked really good. 

Of course if you stay downtown, you can always get your fill of Lappert's ice cream, butterfish, and oxtail soup.

So long Vegas.  I need to save money so I can come visit you again.
