Yes, the rumors are true. Even Jet-Set Mom is allowed to sneak away once in a while. It’s rare, and does not happen often, but when it does, it’s always a pretty amazing event that takes me away. This time was no different. Aria Resort & Casino Las Vegas was the destination for The Trend Tribe’s Influencer Weekend where I had the opportunity to experience the luxe life with social media’s biggest trendsetters in fashion, travel, health, beauty, food and entertainment. Make sure to check it out on Instagram and follow along at #TTTVegas.
There was so much planned. We ate, we shopped, we laughed and ate, and shopped, and talked, and sipped, and laughed, oh, and we shopped and ate some more. The best brands and services came together to roll out the red carpet and gift us with everything that’s new, hip and trendy, while restaurants wined and dined us to the point of no return. It was Christmas in October and we were spoiled every which way imaginable.

Neiman Marcus at Fashion Show Mall. The tribe of trendsetters were treated to makeovers from the talented artists at Tom Ford and you can bet your Lanvin flats that JSM sported Naivete lip gloss and my signature scent, Santal Blush. Jet-Set Mom also had the opportunity to pick out a gorj pair of Sam Edelman smoking slippers based on my favorite Fall 2012 trends.
Topshop. My own personal shopper? Yes, please! Topshop treated the ladies to a whirlwind shopping spree and all the latest fashions were pulled based on our style, needs and sizes. This was so much fun. We enjoyed champagne, snacked on red velvet cupcakes and found the perfect outfits for our Vegas weekend. I’m so in love with my new tuxedo jacket, pants and fabulous heels. Topshop not only has pop-up boutiques at participating Nordstroms now, but they are opening their doors to a new shop at The Grove in 2013! I’m going to start waiting in line now. For another recap of our Topshop shopping spree, check out The Trend Tribe.
Penthouse Gifting Suite & Holiday Media Preview. Neiman Marcus, Henri Bendel, Vera Bradley, The Body Shop, Marigot Collection, Ethel M. Chocolates, CUSP by Neiman Marcus, Isabella Oliver, Container Store, Demeter, and Kaplan MD all had beautiful displays throughout the penthouse where we were indulged with their finest products to take back to reality with us and enjoy. Stay tuned to find out my faves… I cannot wait to share with you all the details on these goodies!
Kiki De Montparnasse. Mystery is seksi. Unmentionables are seki. Silks, cashmere, soft leather and pearls are seki. Blindfolds are seksi. Imagine a place where being ‘naughty’ still gave you tingling butterflies, yet your curiosity drove you to comfortably explore a side of your world you never knew existed. Welcome to Kiki De Montparnasse where you will rediscover yourself through the five senses and the music allows you to leave all of your inhibitions behind. If The Jet-Set Family had a soundtrack it would be Bossa N’ Roses and that is what was playing the moment we walked into Kiki De Montparnasse. I promise you, you will walk out a different person. And you’ll like it. Even 8.5 months pregnant, It’s Fitting.com had a blast at the 50 Shades of Grey party!
Shopping with other trendsetters who are passionate about fashion, style and all things fabulous was a perfect way to spend the weekend. I cannot wait until the next one! Save the Date coming soon!
Here are what the other influencers are saying about our weekend: Cupcakes & Cutlery, Wendy Nielsen Part 1 & Part 2, Chamorro Chica Part 1 & Part 2, It’s Fitting Part 1 & Part 2, and stay tuned for more!
