Voluptuous Queens



After a fun filled 1st night at the Viva Fat Vegas Blogger Conference, I was ready for day 2.  It was a bit hard to get up early Saturday morning and be ready for our trip to Voluptuous Boutique.  I think bed time was about 4am, which is way past my bed time. But I'm not one to spoil the party and had to keep up with all the other girls who are way younger, refused to be the party pooper grandma blogger of the bunch! ha ha ha

OK so as promised I am gonna make it short and sweet with lots of pictures. Hope that's cool with you all!

Day 2 of Viva Fat Vegas: Visit to Voluptuous Boutique in Henderson, Las Vegas.  We were greeted by the owners Juan & Patty, super nice, friendly and great people.  Browsed the store and tried some really cute clothes. They have a great selection of accessories as well.  They have a cool set up with an 80's theme decor and all clothes arranged by color.  All pieces are unique as they only carry 6 of each style. So when its gone, its gone which ensures you will not have something every other fatshionista in town will have. Price point is super affordable, which can be dangerous, because you will want to buy it all!  So after trying on lots of cute things, Patty & Juan surprised us and said we could pick out an item from the store to take home as their gift.  So many choices it was hard to choose but I was happy with my dress I selected.  I got a few other items as well, just couldn't resist!  OK so now on to the pictures from the boutique!

Jeweled neck dress, this one went home with me courtesy of Voluptuous.
Shirt dress, loved the print, but not the fit on me
Stripey vest with belt, this one also came home. what do you think?
Soon after getting to know the owners and browsing around the store, Rosie Mercado and Tina Sanchez arrived for the Queens of the Desert Plus Model Search.  This day was jam packed, we got to meet so many great people, which included the beautiful Rosie Mercado & Tina Sanchez from Fully Chic/Moxie Management who were there to judge the model search.  I heard about 18 girls showed up for the model search, I didn't get to see them all but did chat with one of them.  Also got to chat a bit with Rosie and Tina and talked shop, fashion and all things beauty.  Over all the day was a great experience and definitely recommend visiting Voluptuous Boutique if your ever in the Vegas area.  Oh and just in case you are wondering the winner of the Queens of the Desert Plus Model search is Shayleen Hillary. Congratulations to her and looking forward to see her photo shoot.

Whoa, just realized that was just part of day 2, I'll share the evening part tomorrow. I told you it was a jammed packed weekend, can't believe we did all this in just 3 days.  Hope you enjoy all the pictures and post of Viva Fat Vegas.  There was lots of talk about 2nd Annual Viva Fat Vegas Conference, I am sure Stiletto Siren and Sarah are already in the works planning it out.  You can bet I will be there, will you?

Thank you to Patty and Juan of Voluptuous Boutique for the gift and hosting us in their boutique.  Also want to thank Rosie Mercado and Tina Sanchez for including us in the Queens of the Desert Plus Model Search.


P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway, I added a $20 Lane Bryant gift card to 2 of the totes.

  4. Hey it's Dani from Torrid in Vegas. I'm trying to figure out this blogging thing really I am lol. I would love some help with it, like how to set one up and so on. It was wonderful that the ladies all came to Las Vegas. I really want to keep in contact with the girls that came. Everyone was so nice and real. That's something you don't see in this city unfortunately.

    I didn't even know that the boutique existed and it's right in Henderson! I am going there this weekend to check it out I hope.

    I look forward to hearing from anyone who was on that trip. My email is danimaeball@gmail.com and I need any help I can get with my blog. I also have facebook under Dani Mae Ball. Thank you everyone!

  10. Rock stars, Hollywood celebrities and style influencers wear Ray-Ban. But do people know how the eyewear brand rose to fame? Bausch & Lomb, an American company of one of the largest suppliers of eye care products, took out a patent in May 1937 for the first sunglasses to use a green antiglare lens that ray ban replica filtered out UV rays. United States Army Air Corps pilots wore these sunglasses during World War II, giving them the name Aviators. General MacArthur was photographed wearing Ray-Ban Aviators while landing in the Philippines, giving rise to the eyewear's popularity. In 1938 Bausch & Lomb refashioned its original frame from plastic to gold metal cheap ray ban and branded the Aviators Ray-Ban, meaning to ban the rays of the sun. When the military trend caught on with the public, Ray-Ban likewise transitioned from military function to a pop culture fashion statement.
