I recently had the pleasure of joining Marcus Troy in Las Vegas for the PROJECT tradeshow. This was exciting because 1) I'm an avid poker player, 2) Marcus is the man and 3) I got to hop from booth to booth of some of my favorite brands including the above.

These are just a few standout must-buy items I managed to snap before my camera crapped out. I'm thisclose to placing an order for the above Equipment blouse. It's really not often you find highlighter colors in silhouettes that are wearable outside of a club or lazer-tag party, which makes this dress/blouse perfect. Equipment has the perfect blouses in ever single color imaginable and one day I plan to collect them all. I wasn't allowed to snap a picture, but trust me you will die over some of their upcoming offerings (think: jewel encrusted collars on a washed silk blouse).

Some other highlights of the show included:

New colorways in House of Harlow's Chelsea cat eye shades, Bijules' everything (love that lady!), Bliss Lau's new rings and the BOtB (Belle of the Brawl) line from Hellz Bellz... and shout out to the Hearty mag girls who were there too and got some great coverage of the show!

In personal news, well, I'm single again for the first time in years and - now that I've come through that whole heartbreak stage - I'm really excited about it! As most ladies who've gone through a big-time breakup know: after the rain comes sunshine, rainbows, new clothes (lots), soon enough new hair (chop chop)... and of course some new adventures in dating. Oh boy(s)!
