My husband & I had the most amazing time in Las Vegas this week - even though it was a business trip for him and he was busy working each day, we still got to enjoy spending the evenings together. For those who weren't following along, I thought I would share a quick recap from our stay. I mentioned this on Snapchat (ppfgirl), but we purposely chose not to stay on the strip and instead booked at the Marriott Grand Chateau. We did this so we could get a room with a full kitchen and then buy groceries at Whole Foods - I made my own meals for breakfast & lunch and, that way, we only needed to spend money on dinners out (and special treats, like the macarons below). With my dietary restrictions, this was the easiest way to ensure that what I was eating was safe and it also helped us stick to our travel budget.
On Tuesday, I had the opportunity to visit the Rent The Runway showroom, which is inside The Cosmopolitan. It was so much fun trying on different styles of dresses and it was also a great learning experience - I discovered that my size varied greatly by designer, which was a good reminder not to worry about the number on the tag & instead to go by how the garment fits. My top favorites were this red strappy sheath (wish it hadn't been so expensive) & this hot pink dress. All of the Elizabeth & James dresses that I tried on fit me like a glove, so at the end of my shopping freeze, I might go hunting for a discounted one on eBay or PoshMark.
However, Rent The Runway did waive the rental fee for the dress
& accessories that I wore on Tuesday evening.
