Since today is one of my few days off from work, I decided to spin out one more outfit post before I get sucked back once again into the vortex of stress and busyness that is normal during the hectic Christmas season. Let me tell ya that it wasn't easy getting out of my bed covers from a well-needed nap to edit and write this! I cannot wait until the end of next week when things will have hopefully died down and I can finally live a normal life again... Working in a mall definitely takes the fun out of the winter break and the holidays.
However, working more means more money-- which is very much needed after so much spending in Vegas and on Christmas presents lately. As well, last Saturday my camera was stolen while attending a happier event: my wedding dress fitting. So yes, I did lose my camera after just two weeks. But I am grateful that nothing else was stolen and hope that I can soon afford a new one (I'm planning to take advantage of the Boxing Day sales). And I hope that whoever stole my camera enjoys the lovely pictures that I was planning on publishing next... Does that sound too bitter? Oh well.
In relation to this outfit, I wore one of my favourite purchases on the third and final day in Vegas: this lovely maxi skirt from Theory. I adore the way it suits me perfectly in terms of both fit and length-- as well, the slit and the pleated details make it even more dear to my heart. I've never shopped at Theory before but I'm certainly hooked now! Also, shopping at the outlets in the United States is always a bittersweet experience because you realize what amazing deals Americans get on designer clothes while we Canadians suffer from inflated prices and crappy deals. Nevertheless, I got a great discount on this skirt that had me smiling all the way to the cashier.

My two cool compatriots. There are no other two Peters who would be as much fun!
Our parting view from Aria Hotel. I'm sure I'll be seeing Vegas again soon!
While creating this post, I was sad to discover that many of the outfit photos were less than stellar in quality. Nevertheless, I'm excited to soon put up a post on the food we ate on this trip-- perhaps later this weekend when I am not working or attending multiple dinner parties.
Are any of you dealing with work-related stress? If so, how are you dealing with it?
