The car show is the day people put on their dressiest "casual" outfit. But it's not like that's saying much. For the first time in my life, I was wearing foundation every day because you never know when someone is going to take your photo. I still can't believe I was in lashes at the car show. That's the first time I've put on falsies before 10 at night.
I didn't go too nuts shopping for Viva. Mostly, I focused on shoes:
These great mules for pinup-tastic dressing up. Not great for dancing, though. I'm not even sure why I tried.
Sensible wedges for dancing, walking, and everything else.

Thank goodness for circle skirts! They kept me comfy in the desert heat, which I'm not actually complaining about.

Nighttime at Viva is about cocktail dresses. But I found I didn't stay in those dresses very late because they were so hard to dance in.

I love this shiny blue dress from the 60s. It was a steal, but very sweaty once you start dancing. This is definitely one of the outfits that was on for the length of a a few songs and photos. Yikes. There was another dress I wore but I don't have photos of it. Oops.
I loved people get dressed to the nines but by the last day, I was exhausted with all the outfit changes. Besides, it took away from the bands. At the end of the night, I was either in capris or a comfortable skirt and my Keds.
