Viva Las Vegas No. 17 - Thursday

I woke up quite early in the Thursday morning. We were traveling 23 hours on Wednesday and therefore I was tired, I had a horrible headache and I threw up in my hotel room during the morning… After many cups of coffee and drinking plenty of water I recovered surprisingly fast.


In the noon I was fully ready for Viva...


...and first Mojitos at the Orleans’ pool!


Thursday was exciting day for me because vendor rooms opened first time. We were there just on time when the doors opened at 5 pm…


…and soon we were in the middle of the vintage explosion! On Thursday there was so crowded so following pics are taken on Friday.






Kamehameha! Unfortunately it was too big for me.


I fell in love this raffia skirt but I did not buy it. Now I have started to think have I missed something special…


My sister made purchases at the Remix stall. Unfortunately I did not find anything to buy from the vendors.


On Thursday night I was wearing pink casual outfit.




Only vintage item in my sister’s outfit was this time red earrings. With polka dot blouse and pencil skirt she had chosen Corona handbag and Caracal loafers, both handbag and shoes by Minna Parikka. The spectacles she found from Hong Kong.

Greetings from Nevada!

We just returned from a vacation in the United States and we have passed on among other things four days of hard partying in Las Vegas, at least twice a day changing the vintage outfits. So next posts will include, at least some of my Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender No 17 outfits!


I left my own VLV wardrobe selecting to the last minute. A couple of weeks prior the departure, I had not any idea what I'm going to wear. Panic increased by the fact that for instance my sister had presented to me her own ready to go VLV wardrobe already shortly after last Christmas... I also had a little packing problem that affects my outfits choices and makes me feel myself a little bit nutty sometimes. It is the fact that I shall be a bit afraid to pack my dear vintage items into checked-in baggage (going to cargo hold). I try to stuff it all in my hand baggage (nutty, am I ?)... However after many compromises, luggage weighing and a one visit at the seamstress, my VLV wardrobe was finally complete and it looked on the “planning paper” like this.



I updated my Samsonites and finally my wardrobe was ready for departure via London to America. So in the next posts we are going to Las Vegas. Welcome on board!

Red bow heels

I've been doing less than usual good finds lately, but one nice thing happened a while ago. I found a few years ago a pair of heels with bows of red and black colours to die for. They proofed to be way too small for me and with sad feelings I had them stored in my closet, without being able to use them or having guts to let them go away. On last fall, when I cleaned goods from my closet for the Oilers Motorcycle Club vintage clothing and stuff flea market, I finally decided that the shoes were allowed to leave. They sold fast and even ended up having a good home with the new owner.


I had totally forgotten about the shoes, until a short time after the flea market I found by chance another red heels with bows of my life and in this time in my size! Now I only hope to find a “new” red and black handbag to match the shoes, so any hints for that are most welcome : ).
