Viva Las Vegas 17: Tiki Pool Party/Car Show!

IMG_1024Sorry for the delay my loves! I have been working 2 jobs the past two weeks and haven’t had any time or energy to publish these posts because I’ve been so tired! This is day 4 of Viva Las Vegas and one of the most important days of the convention. We did so much that I had to split this post in two! Saturday’s are usually for the Car Show and the Pool followed by the best live bands at night where we dress up in our hottest evening ensembles. This day was extra special because I was asked to be a judge for the Couples Swimsuit Contest at the Orleans pool alongside my boo Anthony Medina a.k.a His Vintage Touch a.k.a the best period hairstylist on the planet.  I also got to judge with Madison Jane, another amazing hairstylist and Burlesque Queen Dottie Deville! I was extremely shocked I was asked to judge but gratefully obliged! However, I was cutting it close with all of the plans I had before the contest so we all got up super early to make it to everything so I could make it on time. I wore my favorite Vintage 3 piece suit from What Was Is Vintage and did some crazy thing with my hair that kind of looked like a poodle haha. The hairdo was awesome but after a while it lost its luster with me and I kind of regretted it with my outfit lol. I wore the same outfit for a photo shoot with Susana Vestige earlier that week and I felt I wore it better then but whatever. I just stuck a beautiful hair flower in my hair by Nic Coco Creations and continued on with my day like a fierce lil lady.

Our first stop was Buffalo Exchange, who was having a $1 sale that morning that we just could not pass up. We lost the keys to our ride so we arrived a little late but still got some good shopping in. I always find great stuff at Buffalo Exchange, more so than the vendors at Viva. Not saying Viva doesn’t have good vendors because they do, but I’m a frugal fashionista who likes a good deal and many of the vendors are expensive. I only found a pair of shoes there but they were gorge! Anyway, I found some great vintage pieces at Buffalo Exchange, not for a dollar which I had wished but for really reasonable prices. I only found a pair of vintage pink shoes in the $1 section but they are awesome! In the regular priced section I found a cool vintage Harley Davidson top, a neon orange vintage dress, a bright green vintage dress, an awesome regal silk scarf dress, a Betsey Johnson heart print Kimono, a Little Mermaid tank, a Black Crop top, and two pairs of shoes for under $200. YUP. Sunny found a bunch of cool threads too and even scored herself an awesome Betsey Johnson dress as well. To celebrate our successful shopping spree we headed down to the 50s Diner where we enjoyed an amazing brunch before heading to the Car Show. Every year the Car Show gets bigger and bigger and there are more vendors and amazing cars. I ended up shopping again at the Pinup Girl Clothing booth of course. I fucking love their clothes and this isn’t biased because I work for them, the quality, fit, and creativity of each piece just works with  my taste and figure. I bought their new Voodoo Vixen dress which I have been WAITING DESPERATELY for since I saw it in the showroom. I tried it on and it fit like a glove and I felt like Barbie in it so it made total sense to buy it and wear it every day of my life haha. I also bought the hot pink Deadly Dames Capris which also make me feel like Barbie lol. What can I say? Hot pink and me just go together ;). After walking the car show with my loves (my mom, Sunny, Janell) we ran off to the Pool where I got to judge the Couples Swimsuit Contest hosted by Vintage Suits By Mary where Ashleeta and her Beau won for having matching lame swimsuits from the 1950s. Ashleeta should have won the entire contest alone with her ensemble as she looked radiant in gold lame! IMG_0982Our first stop..Buffalo Exchange! How cool is this vintage Harley Davidson top?IMG_0983I’m going to have fun wearing this top!IMG_0987How GORG is this vintage orange dress? Neon Orange is one of my favorite colors too! Not bad for $24!IMG_0989Can’t wait to wear it!IMG_0991This is the other Vintage dress I found there and though it was missing a few sequins I had to have it!
IMG_0997Sunny also found some great items like these cute nude wedges and this awesome black sweater dress!IMG_1002I fell in love with this silk scarf dress and it was so comfortable!IMG_1004Love love loveIMG_1006Another super comfortable and chic dress was this Betsey Johnson Kimono I found.
