|Glammed up at the gaming tables, LIFE magazine, 1955|
For a day spent at one of the luxurious pools at the Aria, I would need a one-shoulder bathing suit a la Bettie Page, who is conveniently featured on my beach towel. Cat eye sunglasses are a must, obviously.
For an evening in the incredibly glamorous Gold Lounge--which also has a picture of Elvis on the wall--I feel like you have to go sexy and dramatic. This 1950s Frederick's of Hollywood mermaid dress is just that. There's just something about those clear plastic shoes that I can't get enough of. They're kind of racy but they manage to be elegant? Good thing Miss L Fire carries repros because it's so hard to find a vintage pair in my size (trust me, I've tried).
A big thanks to Vegas.com for the invitation to participate. It was such fun putting this together! And maybe when I go back to Vegas for Viva Las Vegas next year, I'll have to stop by, if for no other reason than the gorgeous Gold Lounge.
