Vegas

have been taking silly photos of 'Vegas - the interior at the Wynn.  It looks like something out of Alice and Wonderland.  Much lighter in feeling than the older buildings - there is a waterfall outside and you can see outside in so many of the old buildings they seem to purposefully hide the outer world from view.  Not to say that the Wynn isn't still creating a false reality, it is, it is just prettier than some of the old ones.  Less dark, less scary.  I really find 'Vegas to be creepy.  I don't like the casinos and the darkness and the neon and the falsehood and the baseness of it all.  Pleasure Island for grownups crawling with nastiness...
anyway -
so I took pictures of the Wynn...
and some of the shops...
I love the shops.  I love that you can go into a store that is all flagship Oscar de la Renta - wow!  Like really, there are real clothes!?! not just photos in a magazine?  And Alexander McQueen.  My friend Amy and I went into his store the other day.  So outlandish and over the top.  A collection of little clutches with elaborate clasps but one gold one, hard bodied little clutch, with brass knuckles as the clasp and then adornment atop the knuckles - like a row of rings.  I love things like that!
And we poked around the Chanel store.  I was hoping to see those cuffs that I keep seeing advertised - they look like something Wonder Woman would wear to stop bullets with-

it is fun
