3 Days of Sheer MAGIC . . . Walking the Shows Day 2

It seems crazy that I am going to be in (hot-ass) Vegas, and all my outfits consist of  long pants and jackets, but I get cold relatively easy, and it’s always freezing in the convention centers and meeting rooms!  Because my goal is to keep my feet from cramping up after walking and standing on them for hours, I think wedge hi tops are a great go-to because they are fashiony and relatively comfortable.

How do you solve the conundrum of merging comfort w/ style in your wardrobe?

Aurélie Biderman Cités d’Or 18k Gold plated Cluster Cuff

I believe the name of this bracelet translates to “Cities of Gold.” This bracelet definitely looks like something one would unearth in an archaeological dig in some far off land. I think I would use that as my theme when getting dressed with this piece. You can purchase the Cites d’Or bracelet here for $1,200.

3 Days of Sheer MAGIC . . . Travel Day 1

I’m gearing up for the MAGIC show in Vegas next week. I love going to industry buying shows. There is so much inspiration and it just feels great to be in the middle of all that energy. Whenever a business trip is approaching I can’t help but begin wardrobe planning in my head. Try as I might, I am NOT a light packer, so the way I go about combatting that, is to lay out a blueprint of my daytime/evening outfits in my head. I tell myself it helps me to pack more effieicntly, yet I still manage to look like I am going on an month-long pilgrimage to some far off land. No matter how much editing I do, I end up leaving the house with an oversize suitcase and a separate overnight bag (+ a purse + a bag for my laptop & work). I know it’s ridiculous. I can never seem to avoid the semi-silent chuckle and non-threatening eye roll I get from my husband when I ask him to “please honey, can you bring my suitcase downstairs?” He never fails to ask once again how long I will be gone, knowing the answer is a mere 3 days. I can see him trying to figure out “what is in this damn suitcase that weighs 40 lbs!??!” I save him the trouble of pondering and tell him “its the shoes.” Shoes can make or break an outfit. Even worse, I suffer from plantar fascitis, so I have to wear comfortable shoes when I know I am going to be doing a lot of walking. In my book, comfortable translates to ugly. Therefore, I have to switch out shoes. I have to bring cute AND comfy. And that means separate pairs. Can’t wait for the day when someone makes a cute . . . dare I even say sexy AND comfortable shoe, that exists as one whole complete package!!!! Anyway, while I am head-plotting my outfits, I thought I would share them with you. Here’s my idea for day one. (We are driving up, so comfort is key!!!!)

On second thought, considering we have had sweltering heat lately with temperatures in the triple digits, I think I might switch out the skinnies for a skirt or pair of shorts!
