Most of the shops were beyond my budget, but while attending the World Show Association (WSA) Convention last month I felt it was my solemn shoeblog duty to at least window shop at the the Shoppes at Palazzo Las Vegas.
First up, the 85,000 square feet of retail space at Barneys New York. I loved the wire framed high heel which greeted me at the main shoe window display.
The fierce lioness growling at anyone who dares to come near her sumptuous feast of luxury shoes. I found it amusing that she was biting a pair of faux cow-hide pumps. All the fun but none of the blood or gore.
This particular mannequin reminds me a bit of the African tribeswomen who might gracefully balance woven baskets on their heads. Only in this case, instead of baskets she’s balancing metallic handbags.
A Jimmy Choo boutique was also present. This particular shop had similar decor to the boutique in the Forum Shoppes of Caesar’s . Business must be good to be able to open two boutiques so close to each other.
But then again, who wouldn’t want to buy these lovely sandals if they could afford them.
There was also a Tory Burch boutique embossed with her signature logo.
But sadly, Christian Louboutin’s boutique was under construction. I guess the means I need to plan another trip when it opens for business. Just kidding…..
