We are finally back and settled from our Viva Las Vegas Weekender.  I’ve been doing laundry for about 2 days now – I always say I need a vacation from my vacations!

This was our 2nd Viva Las Vegas.  We had a great time.  My favorites were the two Charles Phoenix slide shows, the Furious show and Lil Mo and the Dynaflos performing (look them and Furious up – they are both so good!). It was so awesome to see Kevin and Julie (Julie’s brother and his wife) again and I was lucky enough to finally meet my “internet” friends – Jessica from Canada, Missy from California and Dollie from California (and Monique from Minnesota – yes we hadn’t met until Vegas and we live in the same dang city, haha).

We went to the Neon Sign Boneyard for a night tour – while a few signs were lit up most were not.  It was still very cool to see at night.  The Stardust sign was lit which is my favorite!

We did a little shopping this year.  And by we I mean Lucas, haha!  He got some fancy new shoes from Re-Mix and vintage tie clips.  We also picked up 7 new CD’s – Lil Mo and the Dynaflos and a 6 volume set of classic rockabilly music.

I’ll share my outfits with you!  Wednesday I changed into this Harley dress from Pin Up Girl Clothing for our trip to the Neon Museum, antique store and Fremont Street.  I put all 3 of my fruit clips from Andy’s Eye Candy (check her on Etsy too!) in my hair.  It was a hit.  Pin Up Girl reposted the pic on their instagram and it had over 2000 “likes” – very cool!  I also wore vintage bakelite, earrings from Luxulite and used my vintage basket purse.

Thursday we stayed around the hotel and did a little shopping, hung out at the pool, etc.  My outfit for the day was a vintage sequin skirt and a top from The Oblong Box Shop.  I got quite a few compliments on the skirt too.

Thursday night I wore my floral poppy dress from Le Bomb Shop (via eBay).  I borrowed Jessica’s lucite purse too!

Friday I was lucky enough to wear this beauty from my sweet friend Missy.  She made this dress!!  Don’t you love it? I do – in fact I love it so much she’s making me my very own!  My cute brooch and earrings are from Luxulite (look her up on Etsy – she’s awesome).

Friday night brought out the lurex!  I scored this on ebay for cheap because someone thought they were selling an “80’s glittery dress”.  I accessorized with vintage jewelry and a beaded bag.

Julie and I at dinner – Fridays are novelty brooch Fridays!  I got Julie’s bowling pin brooch from Luxulite too!

Saturday is the big car show!  My first outfit was a vintage 1950’s floral dress with matching belt, bakelite, straw bag, hair flower and you can’t forget a parasol.  IT WAS HOT!  All of us girls had swollen feet and blisters at this point.

Jessica and I were interviewed by Jen from A Vintage Vanity at the car show!  Here is the link (we are toward the beginning): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENkR_jkC0sg&list=UUJnOck4zrUzFllmzvX7Rhzg

After a break from the car show I changed into my vintage Shaheen dress with matching bakelite.

Saturday night is get fancy night at Viva.  I wore a custom green satin dress from Etsy.  I accessorized with a vintage jewelry set and a confetti lucite purse borrowed from Jessica. Lucas wore his vintage blue suit and new shoes.  He got alot of compliments on his suit!

Sunday is traditionally a pool day at Viva (people are recovering from Saturday).  My first outfit was an atomic print light weight dress to wear at the pool.

I changed into a vintage Shaheen again borrowed from Missy (speaking of Missy – go check out her blog Technicolor Cutie – I love it! http://www.technicolorcutie.com/). I’m glad I had that matching cardigan because it was chilly sitting in the auditorium watching Mr. Charles Phoenix throw doughnuts at people on Easter (you had to be there).  I also put my hair up because it had about had it from being at the pool.

Sunday night I wore my navy blue dress from Lindy Bop and accessorized with rhinestones and a vintage beaded bag.

My travel home dress on Monday was the Milan from Heart of Haute.  It is very comfortable and perfect for travel!
