Welcome to Downtown Las Vegas!
If you've never been, picture this: tiny street blocks all connected together like a maze with traffic lights and gorgeous street art. Old casinos, most of them remodeled and given a new look, mixed in with little motels and apartment buildings that add character. Lots of tourists roaming the infamous Fremont Street along with locals just out to enjoy the beautiful weather. In one word, it's a culturally rich and artistic place that if you end up visiting you must bring along your friends to experience it together. Because of the stunning graffiti each stop of the way, I finally got the perfect outfit to shoot there with my photographer, and I freaking love it - the art behind me, the deserted parking lot where we shot, just the whole feel of the place was very inspiring!
Now that you've got a feel for Downtown Las Vegas, let's talk about the cool, slightly dangerous, black and gray look I have for you this week, shall we?
I wanted to express my wild, tough side, which is why I went for darker hues than my usual bright style. I must admit this hard-core look totally unleashed my bad-ass self and made me feel super confident and awesome. Plus, this is the kind of outfit you can get away with wearing during the fall and winter seasons in Las Vegas because, let's face it, Vegas isn't iceberg-cold or anything.
To start it all off, I chose a simple fitted gray tee and faux leather leggings (links to more leather looks, here and here). These two items were my canvas that allowed me to build upon the look from there. I could head a million directions, but I came to adding my beloved fur vest as a key player. Not only is it in season, but it's the best thing ever made for when you're feeling hot and cold at the same time. Another inspiring look that you might find interesting (with a different fur vest of mine) you can head over here.
Let's ride with these over-the-knee boots that I clearly remember receiving last year for Christmas. Santa definitely knows what I like! :)
Because I like wearing just about any style of hat (preferably ones that look good on me), I added this cool leather cap that gives me that edge I was searching for right from the beginning. I love it so much that I'm pretty sure you'll see it in future posts as well.
I just couldn't pass the opportunity to add some color with my handbag that, Surprise! matches the art wall in the back (I swear, this wasn't planned). Isn't it cute? It also, comes with a strap, but somehow holding it in hand totally beats that option and looks better than I could have imagined.
As for jewelry, of course, I added some gold tiny rings and a cuff bracelet. I cannot repeat enough how much I love jewelry and believe that it transforms any look from good to great. Trust me, jewelry has magical powers that I'm sure everyone who wears it, knows what I'm talking about.

I hope you enjoyed this cool, edgy, wild, fur-delicious look that had me rocking out to the camera's shutter sound the whole time. This marks another unique experience that I can add to my book.
