Buffets, Shoes, and Joel Robuchon

What I did in Vegas in 5 words or less: buffets, shoes, and Joel Robuchon. I know, I'm more like your typical 65-year-old crazy cat lady than your average 25-year-old single Asian female...

Hmmm, theres not much to say cept I love Steve Wynn.

One of my Vegas buffet-eating outfits:

(Forever 21 cardigan, random top my mom got for me when she was in Korea, Spanx leggings, Chanel Maxi, and CL Alambra espadrilles)

~Joel Robuchon~
French Laundry and Joel Robuchon are the only two restaurants in the West Coast with 3 Michelin Stars.  I figured I would see how JR fared against FL and as much as I hate to say it, JR wins. While Thomas Keller puts more thought into the combination of flavors and the presentation of each dish, the convenience of the limo ride, the splendor of the MGM Mansion, the magical carts (bread, cheese, and mignardises...those damn tangerine marshmallows!!!) , the generous and delicious take-home raspberry cake, and the attentive but not overbearing service all make Joel Robuchon more memorable than French Laundry.  I got a little shy with the pictures though cus while it was the norm for everyone at FL to go picture-crazy, I was the only person at JR with a camera...

Joel Robuchon outfit:

(H & M dress, Dior wristlet, and Louboutin Cate Trash.)

My future home - the MGM Mansion:

If you're not on MGM's invite-list, you can also stay at one of the 2 bedroom villas for $5,000 a night.  I'm going to start saving like, right now.....

Inside JR:

Pistachio raspberry cake:

The three places every shoe-lover must visit when visiting Vegas: CL boutique at The Palazzo, Shoe In at Wynn, and In Step at Wynn Encore.  Everything else, you can find at a location near you.  The CL boutique and Shoe In were pretty boring but my mom and I had a blast at In Step.  Well okay, I had a blast and my mom patiently humored my shoe fetish. As you may recall, I had a slight fixation on the Metropolis by Chrissie Morris (also here) at the beginning of this year.  Four months later, In Step is just abt done with its summer sale and the Metropolis in a size 36 was available at 60% off.  Yay me!!

In conclusion, buffets + Joel Robuchon + new shoes = excellent reasons to visit Vegas.
