Forum Shops Spring Blogger Event Recap

Last week myself and 7 of Las Vegas’ top Influencers/Bloggers were hosted by the Forum Shops at Caesars for a Spring shopping tour.

One of my favorite things to do is to meet up with other bloggers to share insights, chat about how much we all hate algorithms (lol), have a few cocktails and of course SHOP- everything really is better with friends right!  If you follow me on Instagram you saw snippets of our tour in my stories but now it’s time for the main event.

We dubbed this “the Champagne Campaign” because there was yummy Champagne and Mimosa’s at every stop!

First up was Rimowa.  A leader in technology, known for their light and strong grooved luggage, this iconic German company was the first to use aluminum and then in later years polycarbonate in its designs. They also pioneers the use of the patented, ball bearing-mounted Multiwheel system. With it, even heavy cases can be turned and rotated effortlessly in any direction.

Seriously these babies wheel around like a dream!  I was amazed at how easy it was to maneuver this suitcase even in a tight space.  I am constantly dragging suitcases around packed full of wardrobe and struggling with them- unable to turn and always them tipping over- pulling this baby was like going from driving a 15 passenger van to a sleek sports car!  From Flintstones to Jetsons…..I know what my next investment piece will be!

Rimowa has these fun  sticker books- and a wall of cool stickers like the Las Vegas one on the suitcase above that let you customize and add some flair to your piece.

They set our group loose with the stickers to decorate a piece and this was our creation…….

Next up was Club Monaco.  I have been a HUGE fan of Club Monaco for decades but we never had one here in Las Vegas until recently!

Known for its thoughtfully designed, purposeful collections featuring relevant, wearable pieces, fine fabrics and exceptional fits this high street retailer offers luxe pieces at affordable prices.

The Spring 2019 Club Monaco Collection is called “Breath of Fresh Air” which focuses on breezy dresses, lightweight knitwear and feather light fabrics. A color palette of ocean greens and tranquil blues works perfectly for the spring season.

I’ve been all-in on neutrals lately and Club Monaco serves it up in glorious waves!  You saw the GORGEOUS ocean-hued dress I got at this event in my OOTD last week. I can’t even explain how luxe the fabric feels- you really need to pop into the store and touch it for yourself.

Onto Robert Graham.

Robert Graham is all about COLOR.  Their instantly identifiable shirts crafted with unique garment-making techniques and complex textile patterns are the top choice of men who like a little eclectic pop to their look but did you know they launched a WOMENS collection … and that it’s so dang amazing.

My jaw dropped when I saw this collection.  I had no idea Robert Graham had even launched a womens collection! The patterns, the colors, the prints!  My print mixing loving self was in heaven.

The collection includes, wrap dresses, tailored shirts, jackets, kimono tops, palazzo pants, shorts and fun Hawaiian style camp shirts in tropical colors and textures with boldly adventurous patterns and classic yet unexpected twists.  Its the perfect blending of a feminine viewpoint with the spirit, color and charismatic style that defines Robert Graham.

I was totally obsessed with the womens collection but these mens swim trucks were also a standout for me.

When you first look at them they are sold but once they get wet they reveal a spray paint wall graffiti print with the RG logo.  So fun!

We wrapped the tour up at one of my favorite dining spots, Sushi Roku who just launched a VEGAN OMAKASE Menu- yes my Vegan friends you can have a four course Omakase VEGAN meal at Sushi Roku and it’s delish.

We sampled the yummy Vegan menu which I really enjoyed.  It was light but totally filling, satisfying and packed full of flavor.

Then we were treated to a Sushi making class by Sushi Roku’s Head Sushi Chef where we learned the secret to great sushi is using Japanese rice- which is grown in California lol.  Japanese rice has a short polish grain which is what makes it perfect for sushi.
