The LA Times called these rock formations, titled Seven Magic Mountains, a “kind of psychedelic Stonehenge,” and serve as a modern-day totem to our Instagram age.
A recent visit to Las Vegas included a road-side photo op by these Insta-worthy fluorescent rocks south of Las Vegas. The sculptures, called Seven Magic Mountains, and created over a five year period by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, are an absolute contrast to the dry desert all around.
I think they’re beautiful. The art installation is usually packed with people. If you’re looking to avoid large crowds, sunrise is perhaps the best time to visit.
How do you get there? Just travel south on Las Vegas Boulevard on the way out of town and you won’t miss them. Las Vegas Boulevard parallels I-15.
Vintage 1980s Sequin
The bright rocks set ablaze by the late sunset provided the perfect backdrop for this sequin specimen of vintage 1980’s glam. I have a large collection of these types of vintage sequin tops ranging from the 1950s through the 1980s but none are as bold as this one purchased from Funkanova in NYC.
I appreciate the easiness that comes with styling sequins as the drama is often embedded into the piece itself. Whether or not I dress it down with denim, or dress it up with trousers or a skirt, once I’ve decided on which bottoms and shoes to wear, I’m out the door.
