Red Rock-n-Rollin!

photo 3Hello my loves! I know I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do but I am still adjusting to my move to Vegas and my new job. The good news is that I am transitioning a lot better than I thought. I don’t think I have EVER been this happy in my life. I know everything happens when the time is right but gosh do I wish I could have moved a lot sooner. Everything I ever dreamed of while I was in New York, I have achieved in the 2 months of living in Vegas. I have a great job, I have been modeling with great photographers, I am surrounded by like-minded people, and I now share a BEAUTIFUL 1960’s home with my best friend Santiago. Dude, I have so much closet space and my own home office! I would have had to work 1000 times harder in NY to have that. I promise you that they lied when they said NY is practically the only place for opportunities. They lied when they said it was the only place you could follow your dreams. I am living proof of that. You don’t have to struggle to achieve greatness, you just have to be BRAVE. You have to be willing to unnattach yourselves from your comfort zones and complacency. I was so scared to run back to New York and can’t believe that I am now saying I will never go back unless its to visit my friends and family I miss very much. I have literally been having the time of my life here in Vegas and when I am not working, traveling, partying with my friends, enjoying my new home, or visiting cool towns, I am indulging in the beautiful scenery of Vegas’ vast desert and mountains. I love seeing the mountains here and a few weeks ago when Santiago and I were cruising around our new neighborhood, we decided to visit Red Rock Canyon to celebrate moving into our new home. Sure we could have had dinner and drinks but Santiago and I like to live a very unconventional life so Red Rock Canyon seemed like a rad idea and a great way to absorb the beauty and essence of Vegas. I was floored by the scenery as I had never been there. The entire dessert looked like a beautiful painting. You almost question if it’s real or some movie setting haha. God, the world is such a beautiful place and there is nothing better than being surrounded by nature, land, and mountains that hasn’t been destroyed by buildings, money, and greed. I wasn’t necessarily dressed for the occasion as it wasn’t the initial plan of the day but I was prepared for a little mountain hopping thanks to my H&M flats I always bring with me. Hell, I was in my new Miss Bana Loubies! Check out the scenery, my new home, and my fun ensemble inside!
IMG_0093This beautiful home was designed in the 50s and built in 1962 by a famous architect named William Krisel. Santiago has been a big fan of his work for some time now so it is a dream to live in a house designed and built by the man himself. We were lucky that the house had one owner because everything was original with the exception of an extra room that was renovated back to its original state thanks to creative genius’ Dave Cornoyer and Jeremy Kip. They transformed this colorless home into a work of art in the neighborhood and we feel so fortunate to live in this masterpiece! I will showcase more photos of our home when we are more settled.<38Inspired by our new home and the 1950s I wore my new vintage poodle skirt I recently purchased at Electric Lemonade here in Vegas. I love the salmon color contrast against my baby pink H&M angora sweater.6 I think my home and I make a perfect match don’t you think?1In Vegas you always need a pair of sunnies handy for those strong rays of sunlight so I wore my pink Polaroid cat eye sunglasses. They went perfect with my outfit.3What an awesome coincidence that I had a vintage nylon scarf that had a pink to salmon ombre color that worked perfectly with my outfit as well! For earrings I went with my soft pearl vintage clip-on earrings as the gold and pink pearls matched my vintage poodle necklace excellently.4How cute is my necklace!
2I recently visited the Retro Vegas shop and they are now selling clothing so I bought this cool vintage tiki style purse which works well for carrying my camera and the rest of my life.

XOXO!

Congrats on your new adventures in Las Vegas 🙂 I’m giggling when I see these pictures and not in a bad way but a great way because it reminds me about 3 years ago when I was visiting Vegas with my parents and they said “lets go to Red Rock Canyon”. Great! So I put on my 1950s skirt, cute top and saddle shoes for my mini adventures at the Canyon. When my parents saw me they started laughing and said “Who dresses like that to go to a canyon?” I’m glad to see that I’m not alone 🙂 Enjoy your new chapter in your life.
