Speaking of Ugly Betty … I’ve kind of felt like her over the last two weeks as I’ve been busy buying new clothes for my trip and well, just because I really did need some new clothes!
Around home a t-shirt and sweat pants are just fine and since I’ve been quite the home body since I got really sick two years ago I haven’t been updating my wardrobe all that much. I really haven’t had to … until now.
I must say that it’s a little intimidating to go into a clothing store when you feel a little out of touch with what’s in fashion these days!
If I was just going to the blogging conventions in Vegas I wouldn’t worry about it all that much, but on Saturday night the Bl0ggers Ch0ice Awards are being held in the TAO nightclub which of course is a hot celebrity night spot and very trendy … so I’ve got to look the part.
I think I managed to do ok shopping and what I’ll be wearing should be acceptable. I think that’s the only place that we’ll be going that I’ve really got to worry about my appearance in any great way. You don’t have to really dress up for the casinos do you? It sure doesn’t look like it when I watch shows like CSI Las Vegas.
Oh and when I looked up what kind of temperature Las Vegas would be in November last month I read that it’s usually only about 65 F during the day and mid 50’s at night … well, I checked the weather there earlier today it was 78F and right now it’s 82F … so much for those nice sweaters I bought. I’ll have to be sure to pack some t-shirts now!
Anyone have any quick Vegas tips for me?
I’ve already been warned by a nurse that just came back from Vegas to NOT wear my contacts while I’m there since the air is so dry. Well that won’t happen! I’ll be wearing my contacts on Saturday at the very least.
BTW I’m still sick! More on that later!
