I've always been one for the imagination - a smattering of self made collages, creative narratives and ambitious bucket lists peppering my childhood - so, when contacted me with the proposition of joining the #MyVegasStyle challenge, it was one I could hardly resist. The task? To share a day's worth of dream looks for a stay at the Aria Resort & Casino and, when we're talking theoretical, I'm not one to scrimp on the dazzling details. So, let's just say I'm a glamorous, AMEX-wielding wanderer with a penchant for short-lived city breaks - here's a sneak peak into my wardrobe. It's all true after all, except for the AMEX part.

9AM: From Boarding Gate to Bath
Nothing screams departure hall like bloodshot eyes and the wrong side of bedhead hair, especially when your 6-inch heeled boots and leather skinnies are publicly rearing their ugly heads as terrible travel wear. Look #1, on the other hand, is the essence of fashionable comfort seeing me through to a 1 Bedroom Penthouse - transferred by the included limousine and private "elevator" - to take a well earned soak in the whirlpool tub. It doesn't hurt that I can catch up with E! News on the 20-inch TV.

11AM: Required Retail Therapy
Look #2 showcases flirty, feminine charm for a celebrity-style session of gratuitous spending. A late breakfast at Jean Philippe Patisserie, where gourmet sandwiches and fresh pastries are par for the course, followed by a spree at Aria's own cluster of boutiques would make for a favourable start. Not forgetting a trip to Crystals, home of the city's largest designer shops. A two-storey Louis Vuitton and 10,000 sq ft Tiffany & Co. are surely worth the visit!

2PM: Cool in the Cabana
If Katy Perry's Waking Up in Vegas video is anything to go by, evenings in Sin City can end in boisterous blow outs. Hence, a suitable stretch of sunbathing and spa relaxation is a must before the merrymaking to follow. Beachwear fit for a glamazon, look #3, would accompany a private cabana amongst the palm trees - because, when in Vegas, beach loungers just don't make the cut - my temporary home while soaking up the summer heat, honeyed cocktails in hand. A quick Breeze Cafe lunch delivered by personal cabana staff would quell my hunger pangs before some hydrotherapy and a stint in the eucalyptus steam room in the Spa & Salon. Goodbye travel-tired skin!

6PM: A Night to Remember
Although Las Vegas is famed for its alluring casinos and surreal nightlife, an evening of sophisticated celebration would be on the cards for my night at the Aria Resort - clad in look #4's most glamorous garb. A hunk of marbled meat may not be conducive to partying all night long, but a quiet(ish) night of gastronomy and tipple would be in order with a melt in your mouth steak highlighting the first stop at Jean-Georges Steakhouse - sumptuous dining headed up by an award winning chef. Some champagne cocktails and copious 'posh purple drinks' later at Lift Bar and I'd be in true Vegas heaven, revelling in the luxuriance of Nevada's sparkling gem.

#MyVegasStyle Look No. 4

12AM: Rest and Retirement
A not so late return to the triple-sheeted custom mattress would require a costume change no less important. The opulent sleepwear of look #5 would round off the trip of a lifetime sending me off to sleep with the sounds of rain flowing from the in-room sound system (yes, there is an mp3 dock and, yes, I do employ that sleeping technique).
