I was invited by the Las Vegas board of tourism to visit Sin City last September, and it was one of the most memorable trips I’ve ever taken. I was with a group of journalists who were treated to the best of what Vegas has to offer like food, shopping, Cirque Du Soleil, immaculate hotels and more shopping. The point of the trip was to show us that the culture of Vegas was changing and that patrons could experience entertainment beyond just the stereotypical gambling and debauchery. I love to shop but from what I saw, shopping in Vegas is either geared toward high rollers or the economy shopper who enjoys the run of the mill stores like H&M, Bakers, etc. While, I enjoyed my trip, the shopping didn’t appeal to me because I don’t have a budget that can accommodate Christian Louboutin and stores like H&M and Bakers are everywhere at home. However, my disinterest shifted when I ended up in the Miracle Mile shops and serendipitously discovered Bettie Page–a vintage shopper’s paradise.
More about Bettie Page after the jump….
Bettie Page is a vintage store dedicated to 40s and 50s style where retro enthusiasts can live out their ultimate girly fantasies of dressing like Lucille Ball or a sexy pin-up girl. What I love about how women dressed in those eras is that they were sexy but were also classy and sophisticated, and what I love about the store is that it’s unique. I nearly tripped over myself trying to get inside to try some clothes on. Check out pics from my experience below:
There had to be a jukebox present, of course!
The prices ranged from $40-$150.
I ended up not purchasing anything because the one dress that was within the budget I set for myself had a defect and it was the only one they had in my size. Such is life but anyway, you won’t waste your time at Bettie Page so, next time you’re in Vegas, grab your girls and check it out!
