Viva Las Vegas 18: The Packing Edition

Oh my gosh. There are only 15 more days until VLV 18! I am so stinking excited I can’t even handle it. What is VLV 18 you might be wondering? Well, as far as I have figured out… it is heaven. 4 Days of Vintage, Burlesque, Kustom Kulture bliss that draws around 20,000 to Las Vegas. At this rockabilly retreat you will find car shows, jive classes, burlesque showcases, pinup competitions, hair & makeup classes, endless concerts, bowling tournaments, a tattoo lounge and the list goes on! I discovered this event myself last year right after it ended and I knew as soon as I saw those sky-high do’s and chrome beauties that this next year I would not be missing it.

As the style obsessed person that I am, I began mulling over my closet to find just the perfect outfit for each event and this past weekend my man and I planned it aaaallllll out. I figured that each day needed at least 1 daytime outfit that was cool and comfortable and could withstand the day’s festivities as well as a sultry night piece to end the evening. Now I am going to save those planned bits for a later post but I will let you in on the steals and deals I walked away with this weekend while shopping for “the gaps” in my wardrobe…
