How to look hot without looking slutty: A Vegas conundrum

As I pointed out a couple of months ago, the girls and I are jetting off to Vegas in July for some fun times.

On our second night in town, we plan on partying it up at one or more of the hot clubs Vegas houses. So, my dilemma is this:

What the hell do I wear?
I want a dress that says "Hi, I'm Alex, and I'm here to party and maaaaybe make some men drool and buy us free drinks. However, I have a boyfriend and have no interest in random hookups with strange men, no matter how rich, nor do I want to find myself in a female version of The Hangover."
Though I've never been, I feel Vegas clubs might be the land of dresses that say, "Hi, my name is so-and-so, and I am trying to look as slutty as possible. Please, strange rich men, buy me endless amounts of vodka waters and take me to your suite."

So you see, I want hot, but not slutty.
Sexy! That's what I want. Classy sexy.
Oxymoron? I am determined to make it work.

Here are some ideas that Polyvore helped me conjure up:

This board has made a few things obvious to me:
a. I'm into sparkle/metallic colors. Like whoa. There is a sassy gay man in me just dying to get out.
b. It seems I find one shoulder to be synonymous with sexy. I'm a fan, what can I say.
c. I have a secret desire to wear a bandage dress, even though they remind me of the nauseatingly annoying Kardashian sisters.

I didn't even try to tackle accessories because I suck at those. Seriously. I need an accessories fairy to whisper in my ear every time I put on clothing.

Can any veteran Vegas revelers offer any advice??

the dress i picked out is sparkle/metallic too!! guess we're both gay men at heart :)

I've been to Vegas several times and I think all of the above would work. I'm really loving your sparkly choices, to me a little over the top is perfect for vegas.

Um, I am having the same dilemma. We def need to do a Vegas shopping trip before July!

Amy said...

Alex said...

I knoww I love that one!! Unfortunately, all of these dresses are EXTREMELY unaffordable :(

I LOVE all of them but the first one. The first one just looks like a very typical cut/dress to me. I would have a hard time choosing. I def. like your thought process....classy sexy it works!

I, too, like the sparkly ones (well, the first, second and fourth). And the deep red one, niiiiice.

I'm sure no matter what type of dress you end up going with, you'll look smashing (hot but not slutty, heh heh) and have a blast with your girls in Vegas!

Also, I think there's a sassy gay man in all of us. Hee!

i totally agree with this conundrum, its always hard to look sexy without being slutty

Sara Louise said...

I have never been to Vegas but I want to so so bad!
I really like the second sparkle one, it seems sexy but sweet.

I've also never been to Vegas so I'll just live vicariously through you :) I'm really drawn to the 3rd and 4th one!

Chelsea said...

Katie Jo said...

Basically, you're not doing it right if you don't look slutty ;)

Sparkles are IT!!!!!!! Go for the glam!!!

Alex said...

Alright thanks ladies! Apparently I need sparkles, so sparkles it is!

The Tame Lion said...

Hey thanks for following! I like the sparkly gold one with sleeves (and looks like it zips up on the back)...I think it is classy and chic! Loooove it.

If you can not afford to purchase a dress there is a website that you can rent a designer dress. It is called "Rent the Runway". They actually send you the same dress in 2 sizes to make sure that you are satisfied. You might want to check them out before you buy a really expensive dress that you may never wear again.
