Halloween takes the stage

Halloween never looked so glam.

This past Saturday, I decided to take a trip to Fashion Show mall to see the Halloween Couture fashion show designed by students from Las Vegas’ International Academy of Design and Technology. Inspired by fashion’s biggest names like Alexander McQueen, Chanel and Versace to name a few, these aspiring designers proved they have an insane amount of talent.

It was hard for me to pick a favorite because each costume was so beautifully detailed. Take a look at the photos below and see if you can decide. (And if you happened to miss this, Fashion Show mall hosts fashion shows every weekend.)


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies.
