The Countdown is on..... to Viva Las Vegas 17

That's right dolls - we've booked our hotel room at The Orleans for VLV 17 (it's only 356 days away!).

We don't know who's playing.
We don't know who else is going to be there.
But it was such a hoot last year that we made a resolution to go again in 2014 (plus Chicago, New York and Los Angeles again)

Is anyone else thinking of going?
If you havent booked your room get in now - apparently The Orleans is booked out and The Gold Coast is filling up fast!

And now of course, is the obligatory 'I have nothing to wear!' anxiety.
Well, except for this fabulous number I just found at RetroSpec'd.

It's mid-century reproduction fabric of fluffy dogs and leashes, turned into a half circle skirt and matching peter-pan blouse.

Close up of the fabric - fluffy dogs! Slightly crinkled because I wore it dancing at Torque Bar for the Rockabilly Riot.

That's one outfit down and six more to go. Eep!

Repro blouse and Skirt - Retrospec'd
Shoes - Bloch
Cardigan - Beatnix (yes, a drag queen store that sells vintage! Amazing)
Bakelite - Etsy
Wicker Handbag - random markets

So excited for next year already! No matter who playing it is bound to be a blast! Love your red cardigan by the way ;-)

I'm hoping to go next year as well. It looks like a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people.

That dress is so adorable!

My Honey and I will be there!! It was such a blast this year that we decided to make it a yearly thing if possible!!!

Ohh I'm so jealous! I would love to go to Viva!

Out of interest why do you need 7 outfits for Viva?

Bex said...

It might just be me - but people change their outfits so many times during the day! So 4 day outfits, and 3 night outfits... Plus a pool outfit, plus a car show outfit. Lol.
You should come!!!

Bex said...

We'll see you there, if not before. Have you booked at The Orleans?

I love how excited people get about Viva. I'm promising myself I'm going to go next year. I'm crossing my fingers for JD McPherson!
