Viva Las Vegas 15: Day 3!
It was day 3 in Vegas and we were ready for the first day of the Viva Las Vegas convention festivities. The first day of vlv is really just to register, check out the vendors, and see some bands play so I took the opportunity to do all of those things whilst venturing out with my family to go antique shopping. Me and the girls were excited to really dress up and strut our east coast flavor. However, walking in heels from 9am-12am is no joke so of course there were many outfit changes. I made sure I made use of my first outfit of the day which was one of my favorites out of everything I brought with me. I wore a regal silk scarf around my head, my vintage Sharagano blouse, my Betsey Johnson nautical shorts, a vintage belt, and my Christian Louboutin stilettos. All of my accessories were vintage including my change of shades throughout the day. I just wanted to mashup 90’s Versace with mid-century pinup style and that is why I love this outfit so much. It was busy but it just worked.
Believe it or not, the girls and I went BACK to Buffalo Exchange. Obsessed? maybe. I swear every time I go there I end up finding something and lord I found lots of really cute pieces this time. Plus I always find cheaper vintage their as opposed to the VLV vendors who sell over-priced vintage. Anyway, after that I was off to see my family again for some Antique shopping in the Fremont area of Las Vegas. When I got back I headed straight to the VLV vendors to see if there was any good vintage deals but I didn’t find much. After running around all day I felt my body start to break down and I needed sleep BAD so I got back to the hotel room changed into some comfy clothes and headed downstairs for some R&R and good noms at Koji. This Japanese restaurant at the Orleans that had me addicted to their spicy mayo. Though dinner was pleasant I didn’t last the night to see the bands. I just went to our room and passed out.
