This past weekend we had the opportunity to zip off to Las Vegas for an extended weekend. Mostly I was there for the Las Vegas Spa and Esthetician show, which was so good btw, but once that was a wrap we were free to do as we pleased. We decided to hop over to the Grand Canyon, as neither of us had seen it since we were children. What a spectacular place. We went to Grand Canyon West, just 2 hours from Vegas, to experience Eagle Point and the Skywalk. With a background of ancient Indian music playing, you take off your shoes and step out onto a glass overhang that I'm not ashamed to admit, scared me to death! I'm not a fan of heights at all so you can imagine what it's like to look straight down 4000 ft while walking on glass. No cameras are allowed on the skywalk but they have photographers out there that will take a pic if you want. Take a minute to look at the website and view the short clip for yourself right here. It is breathtaking.
I chose to wear my Emerson Fry butterfly caftan and it was a good choice. We were there early but it was still quite hot. The lightweight cotton caftan kept me cool as a cucumber.
Our first night out I chose to wear this vintage Tori Richard for I. Magnin maxi dress. Some of you may remember that I bought it back in 2013 at Miss Doris' estate sale. All night I imagined her wearing it out to dinner with her husband sometime in the 1960's.
The next night I chose this 100% silk maxi dress from the 1960's. It was made by Gino Charles for Bloomingdale's. Again, some may remember it from the Palm Springs estate sale in 2014. It was perfect for dinner with friends - I felt like princess wearing it. :)
Larry snapped this on our way back upstairs to our room. For anyone interested The Delano used to be TheHotel at Mandalay Bay. They've updated the interiors with lots of white. It's drop dead gorgeous and if you plan far enough ahead you can get super reasonable rates.
