Viva Day Three is Saturday, which is the day of the big Car Show and Saturday night dress up! A lot of gals dress up every night at Viva but Saturday is all about the sparkle and glamour! If you packed lurex, fringe, sequins, or beading, Saturday is THE night to wear it!
Big Daddy and I woke up around 10:00 am and ordered a delicious room service breakfast. I took a shower, laid out my Trashy Diva leopard-print Trixie Sarong dress, red suede bow heels, bakelite bangles, and my bakelite cherry necklace. After my shower, I got my makeup on and applied tons of sunblock! The sun was out in full force and I was not going to risk getting burned. (I stupidly left my parasol at home!)
Around 2:00 pm, Big Daddy and I got a cab to the Orleans and made our way over to the arena to see the cars! The car show layout was different than the last two times we did Viva. I didn't like it. I am not sure what it was but for some reason, the crowd seemed bigger, thus making it feel more packed. Despite this, we saw a lot of awesome cars!
After a couple of hours, Big Daddy and I realized we were starving so we decided to leave to get a late late lunch (basically dinner). But on the way out, I quickly stopped by the Pin Up Girl Clothing booth to say hello to Micheline Pitt and to thank her for all the hard work she does! Not only was she even more stunning in person, she was super nice and very kind.
This year the musical acts at the car show were Dick Dale and Little Richard. Big Daddy and I were at the car show when Dick Dale played but by the
time Little Richard was to go on, we had already left to go eat. I wanted to
go back after our meal and see Little Richard in all his sequin glory but Big Daddy was getting a migraine.
We got a cab to the Cosmopolitan and ate at China Poblano. It is the most unique concept! Chinese and Mexican fusion! It is so good! We got drinks and ordered food.
After a brief rest, I got ready and dressed for the evening. I wore a black, 1950s sequin cocktail dress, rhinestone jewelry, and my teal blue Betsey Johnson platform heels.
I got a cab and made my way to the Orleans. I met up with Kim from San Francisco:
I got a cab back to the MGM Signature and Big Daddy was fast asleep. He told me the next day he felt better.
Speaking of the next day, it was Sunday! The day of the pool party and sadly the last day of Viva. That post is next!
