Viva Las Vegas Vintage Finds!
If your ever in Vegas for VLV please prepare yourself. The vendors at VLV are very expensive and some of their prices are ridiculous, thank god for bargain bribes and buffalo exchange!. I must admit though VLV vendors had vintage pieces that are very hard to find, I mean, I found extraordinary things there that were worth a pretty penny.
I bought a few things from this Vendor, I loved everything. I bought 2 key chains and 3 rings. at $3 each.
Parasols! Ok So I couldnt choose which one I wanted so I bought the one on the far left (black and red) and the Yellow Sailor jerry one on the middle at 15$
I wanted to buy this lamp but had no room in my suit case:( $35
This rain coat caught my eye because, If you look closely its a hologram of leopard prints. $20
This Vintage 2 piece set was the highlight of my trip, I just think this set is beautiful. It had a sewn in polka dot bikini top along with polka dot lining underneath the skirt. Crystal and I think its from the late 60’s early 70’s. $18
Buffalo exchange is a great place for brands as well, this is a Bebe sailor dress. $30
This is another Bebe dress I regret not getting. I just wanted to post this picture up anyway because wrap dresses are such easy pieces to have when your in a rush to get pretty.
I love western button downs, Everyone knows on most occasions I’m in my cowboy boots and ripped up jeans. Im going to wear this shirt to threads! $18
This is a sailor inspired swim suit by Moschino, on the bottom of it is a print of Olive-oil from Popeye. My friend lance calls me Popeye so I had to purchase it at $25.
Stunner shades. $5
OMG I purchased these shoes at the VLV Car show, I died the minute I saw them! Everyone knows I have an obsession with Zombies but, zombies on shoes is BRILLIANT.$45
Check out this Vintage Jacket from the 50’s with a real fur trim. I love when I find something amazing and its just my size. $90
For the love of Chain mail! These gloves are beaded with tiny gold beads that stretch, who ever made these gloves was a genius. These gloves are pretty tough at $16. Cant wait to wear them!
This is a cute pink dress by Luella B. for Target, It made me want a milkshake. $20
My friend Jes put me on to Less Posh an artist who now paints on bags and makes plaques for your wall. Jes just recently got a tattoo of one of the girls, it looks amazing. I had to support this artist, it was the first time I had seen all of her work. $120
It was love at first sight when I saw these bad boys, even though my cowboy boot collection is exploding, these are my new fav’s at $100.
I got these from American Apparel and I’m very much aware that everyone has them, I don’t care, I LOVE THEM. So I purchased them because guess what? I forgot to pack pants with me! $98
La Pachuca is a new pinup brand that Crystal and I really enjoyed watching in the fashion show. I fell in love with the art work that this clothing like represented. In the show La Pachuca and El Pachuco wow’d us with Latin dancing and men in zoot suits. I purchased 2 tanks, 1 for me and 1 for my sister at $25.
I love the color “Blush” its the prettiest pink I have ever seen. This vest is blush pink with fluorescent clear and silver sequins, I just thought It was a good elegant vintage looking piece. This vest is from buffalo exchange $25. The skirt it from H&M $25. In case you guys like the shoes, I bought them a while back when Tecasan shoe boutique was still open.
After modeling in the Bettie Page fashion show (ill have the post of the show up soon) and loving most of the new collection, I decided to go to the store located in Miracle Mile mall on the strip of Las Vegas to get some dresses;). You have to try the dresses on, because a lot of times these dresses surprise me. I adore the store and I adore Tatyana and Jan Co founders of BPC, they are the nicest people I have ever come across. A lot of the dresses fit me so well and are so comfortable, I kinda want them all (well I kinda have most of them). You guys can get these dresses on www.bettiepageclothing.com
(this is not the belt the dress came with ^)
How awesome is this fur cardigan?. This cardigan has diamond stud buttons on the sleeve and a pretty broach to lock it. For a cashmere sweater with a fur collar this was a steal at $65!.
Who doesn’t love scarves? I wanted to wear this to the car show..that didn’t happen..$3
Thats it for now!
