The Dream Dress

Dress // Shoes // Lips // Bag 

I've always been a believer that the perfect dress can work wonders for a women. A week before my Vegas trip, I popped into Nordstrom and randomly found this dress which is perfect if you need something that shows off curves but is classy at the same time! Even though everyone thinks it's a red dress, it's actually this gorgeous shade of fuchsia and has a ruffle asymmetrical hem which looks flattering as you walk. I highly recommend it if you're going to any weddings or other special occasions and need something that's going to get you tons of compliments. Did I mention it also comes in black? 

Also can we talk about this gorgeous background? We shot this in the Bellagio gardens before going to dinner at Lago (one of my favorite restaurants with an incredible view of the Bellagio fountains!) and loved the way the light was hitting through the windows. I'll admit, taking blogging photos while on vacation is so stressful because you're constantly surrounded by tourists in the back of your photos  haha. Normally I shoot in 10-15 mins because I'm so used to doing it after 5 years and have my poses down but shoots on vacation can take forever since you're constantly waiting for people to move and don't want to be rude lol. Oh and did I mention people were staring at me and waiting for me to move so they can get a picture too? Blogging life is tough haha. Somehow it all worked out and we managed to get a good couple of shots! Bloggers, what are your best tips for shooting while on vacation? Do you get up early just to not have people in the background? I'd love to know!

Thanks for reading,
