EVERYWHERE — Halloween drops next Thursday, and that means a four-day weekend of celebrating. Don't be caught without a costume. Shop one of these 11 costume stores all over Las Vegas.
GRAND CANAL SHOPPES — Barneys New York style maven Simon Doonan shares his thoughts on the evolution of Las Vegas, including all the billboards for deejays around town. "They're not particularly exciting looking. They're kind of nebish-y. It's just kind of hilarious. That adds to their mystique."
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL — Heading to the festival this weekend? With VIP passes, you can get into the Zappos Recharge Retreat to land braids, bold lips, free WiFi and more. But never fear if you don't fly first class. The Zappos Glance team is handing out free passes to the stylishly dressed.
WESTSIDE — Take a peek inside NPR and Desert Companion's Christine Kiely's handbag.
Plus looks at the new Rolex store at Wynn Las Vegas (the resort's second), the chichi new Van Cleef & Arpels and even more space for Electric Lemonade.
