Dressing Dexy

I have a couple of short low cut dresses that I have never been able to wear. I did wear a dress like this in Rome one night and felt COMPLETELY out of place! It wasn't slutty at all, but certainly sexy and somewhat revealing.

I have never been to Vegas but thought it would be the city to wear a dress like this at night. Am I going to feel foolish again? Or will there be plenty of others surrounding me i the same kind of clothing?

Would it be appropriate in a casino, or only in a night club?

Thanks, I'm just hoping for a chance to play dress up.

Oh how I wish there was an editing option. I meant to title the post as "Dressing Sexy" not "dexy" lol.

I'm gonna think you meant 'sexy"

Wear it! No you will not feel out of place. Really anything goes. As long as you feel good in it, go for it.

There are lots of dressed up people in the casinos. Lots I'm sure are coming from or going to someplace...some may just be dressed up to play their favorite game.

Just remember...those killer cute heels will kill your feet if you're going to walk any distance. :)

I say, go for it! As for the casino, it probably depends on how dressy the dress is. Casinos are casual places for the most part. But for dinner or a show or nightclub, or walking around, I don't think you'll feel out of place. I've actually got a dress that I'm looking forward to wearing, too. Do a search on here for "vegas clothes." You may be surprised--you are not alone!

Great. But I am concerned about the shoes. We ladies all know that sexy dresses mean painful shoes. The night that I set aside for the dress will have to be nights that we are going to take transportation of some sort. I truly have learned my lesson in the past on this issue.

1) 1998 in Cancun my then boyfriend - now husband had to carry me on his back the entire trip back to the hotel. Its not that I didn't want to walk... I COULDN'T! Not only did I dance all night in heels, but my feet were constantly being stepped on.

2) 2006 in Rome. You'd think I would have been smarter by then...but nope. I just had to wear my cute little heels. We didn't finish our night until late, so late that taxis were non existent and the bus system was closed. We were forced to walk from the Trevi Fountain back to the Della Republica area. It was way too far to be carried, so I had to walk barefoot on Roman pavement. As you can all agree... this was a major health threat! Ugggh, I still can't believe it. LOL

My mission is to be blister free in Vegas.

After putting up with my very uncomfortable (but very sexy) heels for most of the evening, I finally broke. Had to take them off and walk barefoot through the Excalibur, across the walkways to MGM, through the MGM to the monorail station, then ride back to our hotel (Bally's), and walk back to the room. Talk about some disgusting feet! I've never had the urge to wash Vegas off of me quite like that night. Immediately stuck my feet in the tub and scrubbed until they were raw!!!

if you plan on getting a cab to and from your destination wear whatever.... but do not wear heels if you plan on walking any further than across your hotel!

From my observations of past trips, every women (all ages) seems to have "Vegas outfits." A sexy dress was definitely one of them. You would not feel out of place at all. ;-)

You can wear anything you want in Vegas and not feel out of place. You will see everything from torn jeans/shorts right up to formal wear. It doesn't matter where you are- casino, show, restaurant- you will see everything and anything. Bring that dress and wear it proudly!
