Kendra's Night Out Challenge

Recently I was invited by Kendra Thornton to participate in Kendra's Night Out Challenge. This involves creating a style board for her night with a few girlfriends at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas. As an introduction to the challenge, Kendra has described it as follows:

"...in an attempt to get some help from the experts, I've consulted with Tia Cherie of Tia-Cherie.blogspot.com.au. For 2014 I'm thinking about giving Sin City a run for its money; more specifically, I'm interested in spending some time at the lavish Palms Casino and Resort. In 'Kendra's Fashion Challenge', I become more than just a mom. This is where I invite and challenge my blogging friends to compile chic outfits that I should wear while indulging in the endless array of activities available at The Palms Casino and Resort.

There are plenty of things that my friends and I plan to do at the Palms Casino and Resort, ranging from losing money on the Casino Floor to enjoying cocktails at The Scarlet Bar. And since I'll be with a number of my girlfriends, what I really want to try is the Moon Nightclub. At one time, we were the girls that partied and my friends and I are looking to capture some fun as we go to this fantastic club. After visiting the casino floor and the Moon Nightclub, I'd like for all us to attend the View, located on the top floor of The Fantasy Tower. The views in the View (no pun intended) are simply astounding. I am definitely taking my camera phone with me. There are plenty of reasons that we plan to visit this facility. The first is that there are great drinks that we can have. Although we plan on drinking sensibly, there is no harm having a fun drinks before bed. There are plenty of games throughout the area that people can play. Great games include billiards and shuffleboard. In addition to this, there are fun board games as well. The seating in the facility is comfortable, and we plan to chatting until the early morning hours.

It goes without saying that Las Vegas has a style that is unlike any other city in the United States or on earth. We had plenty of place that we could have visited, and we found great help when we listened to feedback from fellow travelers on Gogobot. The reviews made it easier than ever to pick out the perfect Las Vegas hotel amongst the endless options on the strip. We were even able to plan out our things to do while there. When we visit a show, have dinner or visit a hotel, having the right outfit can enhance the special experience."   

 While styling this look I become somewhat familiar with the destination; the Scarlet Bar, Moon Night Club and Fantasy Tower all sound wonderful. I can definitely see why Kendra would want to visit such location. I wish Kendra and her girlfriends all the very best and I hope Kendra finds the inspiration to choose the perfect look for the occasion.

For my style board I wanted to capture the essence of the Las Vegas style while also considering elements such as relative comfort and necessary modesty. I love sequins, glitter, fun clothes and dressing up but I definitely wanted to avoid some of the common pitfalls in terms of dress code that I often see on the nightclub scene. That's why I chose a sequin dress but at an appropriate length and glam high heels but without a platform. In accordance with my style, this added a personalised touch. I love the colour combination of this dress. As soon as I saw it I knew it would be perfect with such a gorgeous colour combination. I adore silver shoes and accessories and believe they complement the dress. I'm drawn to silver, it's so glamorous.  I love the deep purple makeup. It's such a gorgeous shade and works well for the occasion.
