One of the most unique shopping experiences here in Las Vegas has to be The Forum Shops. Needless to say I was over the moon being invited to the Blogger & Influencer Fall Kick Off event.
We all arrived to the VIP Valet area to be quickly ushered to our first store around the corner, which happened to be Dior Beauty.
We were greeted with beautiful flutes of champagne, a very knowledgeable store manager who shared with us the new fragrance Dior just launched called Joy. She said this is the first NEW scent Dior has released in twelve years! It really was divine with notes of powder and citrus, it just may be my new go to!
Next they showed us their super secret Spa room where they perform facials! Only those “in the know” book! Make sure you ask about it on your next visit!
Next stop, one of my personal favorites……Stuart Weitzman. There was the cutest model outside modeling one of their hottest shoes right now, The Veruka bootie. It came in some surprising hues for fall! Dovetail Blue Grey, Rose Clay Pink, Stone and of course Black. She also showed us this amazing soft shoe that was made to bend in half….very unconventional but beautiful. Let’s be real though, as far as I’m concerned, SW is synonymous with TALL boots. I don’t think anyone does them better. She asked for a model and of course I volunteered. They brought out a beautiful black Hiline Suede Boot. To. Die. For.
Then it was on to Sam Edelman in the newer section of the mall. We were warmly greeted with a short history of the brand. There were a lot of fun trends. Very 90’s inspired, along with all the usual fall suspects. Booties for days, including the hot point toed white version that we will be seeing everywhere during FFW 2018. Something I was most surprised to see was a line for children and clothing! I had no idea Edelman forayed from shoes! Again the clothing had a lot of tiny daisy print and bum bags….very Cher from Clueless. I loved it.
Our last Fashion stop was the always soigne’ Ted Baker. Every store is decorated differently, I urge you to pop into this one. It is so immersive, not one detail left out, very Alice in Wonderland! Ted Baker is always known for Bows and Pink in the womens, I was happy to see a little change of up the palette for fall going into the Holidays. Red and black with embroidery, beautiful Khaki greens, and new silhouettes for their dresses. The manager had a selection ready to show us that included a one shoulder number with an ethereal feather print, so fresh. For men, animal prints are BIG, and of course their impeccable suiting with eye catching lining. That never goes out of style! He said they will be stepping outside of their usual with a cosmic print, I can’t wait to see that!
Last stop was LUNCH at Sushi Roku! We were ravenous and so excited. Manager Johnny met us at the door. We were relieved to hear he had thoughtfully taken all of our dietary restrictions into account. He led us to a beautiful long table in a room filled with light and a gorgeous view of the strip. He said that it really comes alive after sunset.
He started us off with various sashimi, also something called a Tuna Pizza that was exceptional. Then moved onto a few hot dishes, GF fried rice that had the surprise edition of fresh green beans that I loved. Steak wrapped asparagus served on a hot stone, Steak Tobanyaki with Truffle Ponzu, and a Sea Bass cooked to perfection!
Did I mention the drinks? No?? They were absolute works of art. My cocktail had a mix of muddled strawberries and sage along with Sake and Vodka, it was SO refreshing.
Thank you again Forum Shops and Christie Moeller for hosting such a wonderful event!
