I found a few dresses that I really liked and tried them all on. A few were too big, one was to small, but one fit great, so I got it. It was only $30! I don't know if it was because it was the last day of the show, but I got everything for really cheap, and that's why I was able to get so many things! I've heard that if you go on the last day of these sorts of things that you will get great deals because people are trying to get rid of stock. I mean, one of the hats I got was marked at $55 and I got it for $5. That's insane.
I ended up with a dress, two hats, a scarf, and a shirt all for about $60. That's usually the price of one dress on Etsy, and that's usually the lowest you find. I always find amazing vintage dresses that I would love, but that cost over $100. That's a bummer when you're on a budget! I was so excited and surprised to find that many of the pieces at the show were very reasonably priced.
I was feeling retro that day, especially given the event I was going to, so I opted for a little leopard, some red accessories and a petticoat-esque skirt. Looking at pictures of the outfit, I'm not too sure how I feel about it, but I like it enough. I like it better without the sweater. I can't wait until it's warmer out so I can wear this leopard bodysuit with my denim high-waisted shorts.
I wasn't sure about where to take pictures since I wasn't familiar with the exact area that the show was in. On the way back, Chris and I decided we were hungry so we stopped at a diner nearby. It turned out to look pretty retro on the outside, which was a perfect place for these pictures. I really love old, retro looking diners. I love diners in general because I love having a huge variety of things to pick from. I would probably pick a diner over a big fancy restaurant. I love going out somewhere fancy, but usually I just want a burger or a grilled cheese with bacon or a grilled chicken salad. Either that, or I want Mexican food. Ugh, I just love food. A lot.
