Viva Las Vegas 20

Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend 20 Trashy Diva Annette Dress in Carnival Print

Every year (around Easter weekend), vintage enthusiasts scramble from all over the world to The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas for one thing: Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.  2017 was Viva's twentieth year and they definitely went big!  Because we couldn't pass up such a wonderful event; Kevin, Bianca, and I packed up our best outfits and spent our Saturday at the Car Show.  Thanks to Trashy Diva, we were perfectly dressed for the show and ready to hand out discounts to the many Divas who attended!  It was so much fun running into friends, making new ones, dancing to live music, and taking in the endless rows of classic cars.  I'm already itching to go back!

Vegas Strip Outfit:

Although it was quite hot, the three of us had such a wonderful time.  Bianca enjoyed meeting all of "mommy's friends" and making a friend of her own, Wynter.  There were so many vendors with both vintage and reproduction goodies, but I was good and stuck to window shopping and socializing.  There was a Trashy Diva meet up in the middle of the day and it was so great to meet all the gorgeous Divas in person!  The ladies of the Trashy Diva Facebook groups are so positive and inspiring, you almost feel like family.  Needless to say, it definitely was the best part of my day.

I wore the new Annette dress in Carnival print from Trashy Diva and it was the perfect choice for the outdoor event.  Because it's made in a cotton voile, it was light and breathable.  The Annette is fully lined and features adjustable straps, a gathered circle skirt, massive hidden side pockets, and a back zippered closure.  The Carnival print was a total eye-catcher and I had people stopping me constantly to ask if it was vintage.  The Annette is in my top three favorite cuts from Trashy Diva and I hope there are many more on the horizon (I must have them all)!

Since it was Bianca's first trip to Las Vegas (and first trip outside of California), we decided to have some family time on the strip.  She loved the Excalibur castle, I'm sure you can imagine why.  She was also intrigued by the slot machines at the casinos.  She didn't really grasp why she couldn't play with them, so I just looked like a mean mommy as I carried her away, haha!

I can't wait to go back Vegas, and more specifically, look forward to Viva Las Vegas 21!
