Vintage Vegas: Day 4!

crop4It was my 4th day in Vegas, exploring what will soon be my new home and I didn’t want to leave. I only had 2 days left and was savoring every minute of every moment in sin city. I am so fortunate that best friend Santiago had a plan for every day that I was in town. Every day was an adventure and this day was no different. We are like little explorers always wondering the unknown to meet fascinating people, visit fascinating places, and in my case..shop for fascinating things 😉 lol. We did all of that and more on day 4!

Dressed to the nines in my Kenley Collins frenchy catsuit from her Pink Lady collection, I was ready to channel my inner vintage Barbie. It was one of my favorite outfits of my trip and god was I happy that I got to wear my new vintage Barbie purse with it! It was the perfect outfit for everything we were set to do. I got to visit some of my favorite folks over at the Bettie Page Clothing and Beach Bash Beach wear showrooms. My best friend and I got to tour the warehouse and meet the fabulous corporate team followed by a delicious lunch over good conversation. It was so nice to see Jan, Tatyana, and Artem and spend some time with them before I was back off to New York. After that my bestie surprised me by taking me to the Stitch Factory, a fashion incubator, co-working studio, and creative education center located in Downtown Las Vegas. I plan to register for their courses when I touch down in Vegas so I can create my own clothing line. That’s right. I plan to create my very own line soon and I am pretty sure I can gain the knowledge I need by attending the Stitch Factory. I met a lovely lady named Jennifer who was super sweet and informative about the studio and the courses they offer. I was sold right away and suddenly my dream to be a designer seemed possible. I had to celebrate so we were off to the Glam Factory to find some vintage goodies! Stephanie, the owner, is such a sweetie pie and we fell in love with her dog lol. I was hoping to find a lot of pieces at her store but only found a cute vintage crop top. She usually has so much stuff but sells out so quickly! I guess when you snooze you lose and I must have been asleep haha! On our way home for a quick cat nap we made a pit-stop to Alternate Reality Comics where I found a cool team Veronica T-shirt lol. They always have such cool comics there. The rest of the day ended well with a chola inspired outfit change in Viva Bandida for an awesome classic car meet-up at Mr.D’s and a visit to the Parisian! Crazy little explorers, I know! IMG_8433Killing time before our plans we drove around the neighborhood and stopped by our new friend Ralphs house where I got to do a cool outfit shoot :D.

It was honestly one of the sweetest moments I have ever had in my life. Sometimes I get discouraged and ignore the numbers and forget that people really read my blog. Its moments like this that motivate me to keep going, keep blogging, and keep creating because my determination is their inspiration to follow their own dreams. Thank you so much for the rose Janet, you have no idea how thankful I am for meeting you!IMG_8665 Made a wish!

  1. Loved all the pics. Makes me wish I was there with you checing out all those Hot Rods too. I will takt the Pickup truck and definately take you shopping.

  2. I’ve been enjoying living vicariously through your trip. I think your move will be a good thing. There is not a day I don’t miss the Bronx, it stays in the blood, but I’m glad I have gotten to live in more than one place.
    Don’t get discouraged about the blog. I think there are a lot of readers like me who almost never comment but check your blog daily. This is my favorite blog, I always look forward to new posts. Your fabulous sense of style inspires me to step up my game and not fall into a frump. I think you attract so many readers because you come across as real, not in the least bit snobby (cuz bx girls keep it real). You are a very multi-talented young woman and many of us would really miss your blog if you stopped writing it.

  3. You know what I looooove about your blog Ms.Vinny? The fact that when I read it it’s so genuine! It’s like a person can really grasp your aspect and emotions! You are not only my fashion inspiration but also an inspiration of having a positive attitude and put your best outfit and lipstick on attitude even on your worst of days! I have been a follower for about two years and I have to say great job on your posts! I love them! Keep the fire burning Ms.Vinny!

    P.s. I can’t wait to see what clothing you’ll be designing!

  4. I agree with everything the person above said lol. Love your style and how personal your blog is.
    My mouth literally dropped when I read that you are starting a clothing line! Can’t wait to see your designs. 🙂
