Ringing It In

Last night, to ring in the New Year, I headed to Mohegan Sun.

sequin tank: Target / cuff: Layla Rowe / watch: MoMA / wedges: Steve Madden

I astutely found a $50 slots coupon and parleyed that into big, big winnings. Seriously, this machine called Kitty Glitter paid out big time! And the casino was a really fun place to spend the evening – it was glitzy (okay, it was sort of tacky) and packed with revelers. Here are a few shots from my night.

Yup, I'm a player



It was a night of many hats (this was at the seventh hour of being at the casino and my eyes just couldn't take the smokey air anymore so out came the contacts). Thumbs up for NYE!!!

Casino crowds

The casino was packed

This is the machine that made me rich (well, richer than I was when I walked in)

$140 richer to be exact

Adieu to you Mohegan Sun

I hope everyone else had an amazing New Years Eve as well!

Kitty Glitter sounds like a perfect NYE game. And winning some money must've made your new year's extra sweet!

Glad you had fun! I steer clear of those places because I get too excited. I was playing a fake slot machine at a pool and spa place and was winning, I must have got too loud because one of the employees came over and without saying a word just pulled the plug... ha ha! xo

Is that sequin tank a recent score? Love it! Happy new year!

Courtney Erin said...

The sequin tank is indeed a recent score - and NYE was the perfect occasion to wear it too!

Robyn said...

That coat is stunning, as is your new years crown. I wore a lace dress and heels, but ended up running around barefoot in the backyard of a friend's house. Happy new year.

Bonnie said...

Fist pump the air!!!!!! :) Love it!

Cute pictures! I've played Kitty Glitter before lol. Whenever I see "MoMA" I think Museum of Modern Art, is that where you got your bracelet from???

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Sounds like fun!! I love your sequin tank and you look very chic in black!

Courtney Erin said...

@ Marie a la Mode - the watch is from the MoMA in NYC, I got the cuff at a shop here called Layla Rowe. My helpmeet got me the watch for Festivus, I've been lusting after it for months!
