Last week I found myself in Las Vegas for the first time in my 22 years of life. Better late than never, huh?

While most travel to the city of sin to gamble and absorb everything the city has to offer, I visited on a different account.

I was in Vegas for the Project Trade Show at Mandalay Bay. We were there showing a fashion line, in the hopes of gaining feedback and picking up a few fans along the way.

While it was mostly work, we had a bit of time to squeeze in some play. Below are a few images of the divine meals we consumed, the priceless views from the top of

our building, as well as a few celebrity sightings while we were there.

((our hideously large amount of luggage))

((FINALLY!! We have arrived))

((one of the best meals to ever touch my tongue))
--eating @ Aureole, CHILLED LOBSTER SALAD
Pipérade and cold pressed olive oil--

((Miss Khloe Kardashian, herself))

By far, an experience to never escape my mind. So grateful to have traveled and learned so much in such a short period of time (3days).

We love the use of little details paired with great pieces to add a little something extra to our wardrobes! Check out ITSOLA'S use of braiding, zippers, and pleating in our new spring collection hitting stores this MONTH!!

Also, sorry for the lack of posting recently- we've been flat out busy working on JANE OH's first line. Check it out @ http://www.janeoh.com/, as her website is up and running. Hopefully you love it as much as we do =D

Shuffle While You Swim

Attention readers:

The most brilliant invention ever has just arrived (well, at least for me) . So while swimming laps as a form of exercise I become terribly bored, so quickly in fact, it nearly defeats the purpose of me even swimming in the first place.

Thankfully my lane buddy introduced me to a solution: A WATERPROOF IPOD CASE! I cannot tell you how many more miles I would have under my belt had I known about this sooner. Made to fit an ipod shuffle, the

waterproof ear buds project your choice of tunes while you swim lap upon lap. After the iPod is placed in the case, it just clips onto your goggle straps! Best of all- it’s under $100.

Mine is currently en route to my front door, but I’ll be sure to let you know how it turns out. Let me ask, do you any of you have this incredible contraption? If so, what are your opinions. The testimonials for this product were non-existent, and having Michael Phelps pose with it for a picture isn't the most convincing.

Reciprocal Inspiration

Here at ITSOLA we love how the role of reciprocal inspiration between fashion design and interior design is so prominent. We found this image of a bed set online that we absolutely a-d-o-r-e. In addition, we found a few images of clothing choices that look just like they jumped out of the bed and onto a person!

The bed I envy:

The clothes that are clones of the bedding:

Are there any outfits that you feel look strangely similar to a room in the house? Or have you ever tried to match an outfit to your room? Do tell!

The Way our Weekend Went..

Dear ladies and gents:

We would like to share with you how we wrapped up our weekend:

1.) Having brunch at an outdoor patio

--> It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a mimosa (or two) with a good friend.

2.) Checking out the Melrose Trading Post

--> With such a wide variety of things like boots and vintage jewelry, it’s hard not to find something that you need. For example: pre-owned boots. They say you can’t judge someone unless you’ve walked in their shoes. My take on the saying? Judge away if you bought ‘em!

3.) Watching the Grammy’s

--> I must admit, I am jealous that I don’t get a sweet bag of loot for looking cute and appearing in public. Tell me, who was your best or worst dressed nominee?
