Vegas Pt. 2

So what do you bring to Vegas if you plan on laying poolside all day? With the weather hotter than NYC, I decided to bring lightweight clothes that I can change out of by the pool, but still feel relaxed in, while walking back and forth through the hotel. Although Vegas isn’t humid, you still want to dress loose and relaxed as every hotel has climate controlled temps inside.

 Staying at the Aria hotel, hanging out by the pool is an experience in itself. If you want to sun bathe all day, get there at 9am to get a good seat or cabana. With several pools to choose from, we decided to camp out at SKY POOL. It’s $50 a person to get into that pool area, but the chairs, cabanas, and service were that much better.


When not swimming like Nemo or Michael Phelps, you would find me eating, reading a book, or working on my tan. What I most enjoyed about the pool area was the in house music being played, great mix that didn’t just play EDM all day.


Should you visit, there is another pool area that has a club like atmosphere called Liquid. Picture any MTV party you’ve seen on TV, and that’s what you’ll see there.

At PROJECTNYC this week I met with the master cobbler Zen, when he described his love for shoes, and how he gives his customers a unique experience, I was ready to re-craft my shoes.  Based out of Minneapolis, Minn. Zen can take your brogues, and transform them with any colored sole or design of sole of your choosing.


Zen and Max just received the “Best Dressed” award from the Project Blogger team, so not only does the team at Greenwich Vintage look good, but they do great work as well.

IMG_3474Whether it’s time to go to work, or time to find a job, make sure that your shoes speak just as well as the words coming out of your mouth.  Here are four shoes, that whatever style you have, will let people know you mean business.  Depending on the crowd you work with, brown or black shoes may be “standard operating procedure”, but you can wear both colors equally.

For the more conservative individual, the cap toe shoe is  classic, whereas the more stylish dresser can wear the double monk strap, or loafer with embellishment confidently.
