To Phoenix and Back...


 I'm back!  This past weekend was one of the most fun conventions I've ever attended.

Sweater:  Victoria's Secret.  Jeans:  NY&Co.  Shoes:  Simple.  Tank:  Urban Outfitters.  Bag, Shades, Neckace:  Thrifted.

 Our hotel was in a casino (I limited myself to $30 and lost it all in about 15 minutes on video poker.... dummbbbb...) We were surrounded with great people.  I took them to the pool after "work" with me each evening.  Amazing food was served, each new meal signalled by an employee playing a xylophone in a church-clock style chime.

Bangle: Forever21.  Rings:  Target. 

On the last evening, they bussed us out to a mock ghost-town for a steak dinner under the stars featuring the best mashed potatoes I've every had (really-- cheese, poblano peppers-- mmm) and unlimited tequila sunrises.






Dress:  Forever 21.  Tights:  Target.  Shoes:  Steve Madden.  Blazer:  Kaspar.  Belt:  thrifted.



The hotel featured this horse statue in the lobby.  I was impressed to learn that the neck is made of the "skeleton" and roots of a whole cactus.  Apparently the green, squishy, water-filled parts of the cactus are merely a skin over the woody parts... who knew?


And now that we're back, I cannot extricate myself from the poor cat's attention-starved, furry little grasp...

Yours,

Elissa.

I concur re: the "stripey picture".

Also, your petal dress makes me happy. Very happy.
